Be the Woman you are.
I Celebrate with You, all of the Strong Women in our Lives.
They are, who we as Women, should strive to be.
My husband just shared this with me and I thought that I would pass it on to you, dear reader.
May you always have someone around to hug you.
May you always have someone around to hug.
Please accept this hug from me to you!
Change is an inevitable part of life.
Better to embrace its challenges than to resist in futility.
Learn what you must through the process.
Making one full circle instead of many.
May you go through change with grace and gratitude.
SET YOUR SIGHTS HIGH!
ALWAYS LOOK UP!
LOOK FOR THE SILVER LINING!
THE SKY'S THE LIMIT!
KEEP YOURSELF OPEN TO THE MESSAGES FROM ABOVE!
IT'S ALWAYS DARKEST BEFORE THE STORM..........
MAY YOU ALWAYS HAVE PEACE OF MIND IN KNOWING THAT STORMS HAVE AN END AS WELL AS A BEGINNING. MAY YOU WEATHER THROUGH THEM ALL WITH GRACE AND COURAGE.
BE WELL. BE OPTIMISTIC. BE STRONG.
The three most powerful words ever spoken from one to another: "I Love You". When spoken with an honest and open heart, this phrase carries the most weight when voicing our true feelings of closeness. On the other hand, these same words, when spoken with a cold and calculating heart, can be the most manipulative and selfish words uttered to another.
I make it a point to tell the ones I care for deeply that I love them often. Whether it be in person, on the phone, via e-mail, text or by any other means of communication. When I speak or write these words, I mean them every time. I hold great reverence for this phrase and would never use it for any reason other than the purpose than it implies.
Unfortunately, I cannot say this for everyone. I cannot hold true that whoever says this phrase honestly means it. I have seen and heard this phrase being misused and abused by many. I have come to learn that these insincere individuals take advantage of others by using these words to manipulate and hold power. You see, dear reader, "I love you" holds much power because of its monumental meaning.
I would like you to take a bit more time to show your love and to speak it out loud as often as necessary with grace. You may find by doing this that the recipients will be more receptive to your true feelings than you might have otherwise thought. People do need to hear these words from their loved ones. It's a positive affirmation as well as a call to comfort and acceptance. We all need to be loved, and to know that we are loved is of utmost importance. Please also be mindful of those around you who are not sincere in expressing their love for you. Look to see beyond these words for what ulterior motive may be behind it. Do not allow yourself to succumb to another's lies and deceit in order to fulfill a need. It will only end in a most hurtful and painful way.
My hope for you, dear reader, is to have a life filled with love and laughter. To be happy and secure within yourself so that you can share your love with one another in a most pure and beautiful way. With only sincere intentions, and an open heart.
I truly love FALL.

Without HOPE there is nothing.
There is NOTHING without hope.
Keep it always, even when it tries to leave.
Revive it when it tries to fade.
Replenish it when it starts to dry up.
Share it when it is lacking in others.
Believe it when you are at your lowest.
Know it when you are blessed.
