Celebrate Roll With It


Hello friends, Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another blessed week to celebrate the small things. (smile)

This week, I celebrate the choice to roll with it and a surprise blessing of a case of Dr. Pepper, from a dear friend, at my door. (grin)

The little things that touch us in mighty ways. (smile)

It is, what it is. It is my metaphor for things and stuff or the Y moments that test patience and self control.

This week, roll with it, kept my focus on the positive and put all else at the foot of the cross! Praise The Lord.

There are times, we give it too much power. Let it go  and move on.

No coulda, woulda, shoulda replays.

Roll with it, by keeping the faith.

Roll with it, by loving some folks, from a distance.

Roll with it, because you can’t help a fool.

Roll with it encourage the choice to let it go.

Abundant blessings, keep the faith and enjoy the weekend. (smile)

Celebrate The Small Things


Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things.

All is well in my world and I hope all is well with you. (smile)

My message is light this week.

This week, I celebrate feeling better physically and the small things like the air conditioner when it’s brutally hot; a cold Dr. Pepper, patience and the ability to nap after a very long day.

Sometimes, it is, what it is. (wink) Keep the faith and keep moving forward.

Abundant blessings and enjoy your weekend.

IWSG August 3rd Question


Hello friends. (smile) It’s the first Wednesday of the month. Welcome August IWSG Co-hosts:

Tamara Narayan
Tonja Drecker
Ellen @ The Cynical Sailor
Lauren @ Pensuasion
Stephen Tremp
Julie Flanders

Thanks Alex C for not kicking me off da list. (wink) I appreciate that I’m still part of this amazing group.

AUGUST 3RD QUESTION: What was your very first piece of writing as an aspiring writer? Where is it now? Collecting dust or has it been published?

My first piece of writing as an aspiring writer came as a blogger in my second year. I was fortunate to be part of the IWSG’s Guide to Publishing and Beyond in 2014.

My writing draft is still in the pieces stage collecting dust! Until I retire, from the circus, finding dedicated time to writing the book falls short.

Sometimes writing ebbs and flows….

Like running a race, I have faith and stay encouraged while pressing forward until it’s finish. (smile)

Stay encouraged and keep the faith.

Blessings, my friends!
