Love One Another?!


Hello all,

How are you doing? How have you been? You know I really do care about my friends, my family, people I meet, and you!

I do not just say that, I truly mean it. I have have quite the life I have had a lot of hardships, challenges, rough times. I have had lots of blessings memorable, unreal and treasured moments. All of which has taught me to be who I am today. I am far from perfect but I work hard at staying cheerful, upbeat, kind, non judgmental, and encouraging loving. Not just because I am a beliver in Christ; who teaches us to Love one another. ツ John 15:12-13My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

There are over 30 verses in the Bible talking about how we should treat each other as believers, some are listed here: https://www.biblelyfe.com/blog/bible-verses-to-help-us-love-one-another

Often times we forget that we are all human and we all have needs and emotions. We all have unique life’s. I say this all the time.. How you treat others matter.

News Boys Love One Another

Are you nice, do you loose your cool when you react ? Do you hold on to anger? Do you hate? We aren’t perfect and honestly the world we live in right now makes it harder. You are constantly asked what side you are on Pro whatever ——- Anti Whatever………..?????

I really don’t care what faith you have as long as you aren’t out to attack others. Our current society is pushing us to become divided and to turn us against each other. Don’t tell me I am wrong. The evidence is all around you.

We spent the majority of the past two years, where I live, to keep a distance from each other. That included Family and other grop gatherings, parks, restaurants, stores, ectara – were closed. There was forced separations from each other. We were mandated to wear masks. Almost completely shut down all forms of travel. So much so we got used to being alone and living in fear in our homes. Forgetting how to react to people we actually come in contact with. We are now face to face literally with people. However with the news and groups promoting fear and hate to others of all sides tryingtokeep us separated if not physically but also mentallyandemotionally… Am I wrong?

I don’t know about you but I do not want to live a life of fear. I want to live a life of Love. I don’t care what side you are on. You are welcome to your own opinions and feelings. I am not trying to devalue them. If they matter to you – they matter to God. So they matter. At least that’s How I feel about all the subjects.

I do not want to be judge and jury. I would rather change the world one person at a time with Love. To let you know you matter and that you are important. No matter what you think or “so called side your on” . God loves us… He loves you and we have a bigger enemy out there that wants to drive a wedge between us all and tear us all apart.

He is the Devil….. My favored verse isn’t John 10:10 for nothing. It says : The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. Meaning Jesus came so we could live a better life if we so choose too. Have you ever taken the time to think about your actions? Your words? That what if you do and how you treat others matters?

I am not here to scold or punish you. Nor is God. He loves you and He wants the best for you. ツJeramiah 29:11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” He doesn’t want you to waste time beating yourself up… Heck I am sure you already struggle with your self worth enough. That’s why he encourages us to love one another. Because Love is powerful and it changes lives. Think about how much we could change if we could come together and work together for the good. Hate only leads to war and lives lost….. Is that what you want? More death? I am not trying to be dramatic but I think we all need a dose of reality… Maybe that’s what I should have titled this post instead of Love One another….

How do you wanna change the World? Honestly – It is up to you who you want to be and how you want to treat others.

News Boys That’s How You change The World

You have more power then you realize… Please start thinking about your actions, your words and how you can love the people in your life and treat the strangers you come across. Anger comes easy. You have to work at kindness and love.

What is remembered more? Acts of anger or acts of love in your daily life?

( I am not referring to abusive relationships’ those are bad and if you are in one you should and seek help! )

I can say honestly I often forget about being cut off, treated badly after a while. However acts of love stick with me. Why? Because they touch my heart they heal my soul and lift me up.

If you know about DeepyRootedInHim.net you may me asking why didn’t I post this there. I choose to post this here because the topic is so close to my heart. Because it is my main message in life. If I do anything in my life or I am known for anything. I want it to be that I helped and encouraged you to Find Love in your life and to be loving and kind to others. That’s what Valentine’s Day is all about right? It celebrates love and to me it’s not just for couples but for all people. That’s one of the greatest things my Dad ever taught me. To treat all with respect and love. If they deserve it or not. Pray for them, Ask God to heal their hurts and try to forgive their mistakes and wrongdoins… Because holding anger and hate in your heart hurts you more then it hurts anyone else..

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Good night 😴

Hey There World…


Hello friends,       

It has been a bit since I said hello👋.

 Hard question to answer? It can be huh… You matter! Honestly you should be asked how you are more often. Sadly that isn’t always the case or possible. So here I am asking you.

-I am also here to say to you and I –

Getting back on topic, I thought I would stop by to say Hi. While giving an small update. I’ve thought other then just talking about what is going on around me and in the world, I’d talk to you about myself and some thoughts that I’ve had.

Where do I start… Hmmm. I am not in depression, tho I’ve been there before. Although sometimes I feel like I’m dancing on the edges of it constantly. Yet, I am always having to be on guard, staying strong looking for those silver – linings…

Which reminds me of a passage in the Bible. Stay with me please even if you don’t belive. I’m  not trying to sway you. I am a beliver in Christ, yes. Even if you are not, I wanna ask you to have an open mind. I wish share something that has helped me. Maybe it will help you. Maybe not… Please at least read the blog post in its entirety.  Thanks.

Psalms 23 <KJV> 

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

I’m not gonna dissect the whole thing. However, I feel it’s important to share the full character. What I want to talk about is this part- “Walk  in the shadows of death, I will fear no evil.”  I didn’t fully understand what the shadows of death meant for many years but now I feel like I do. I remember it like yesterday. I almost ten years ago, I was driving through a canyon. It was a sunny day out but the canyon cast a complete shadow over the long road that I was driving. Then suddenly it clicked for me. To me, that verse meant constantly surrounded by death, yet not dead. Not to be morbid, but true…

My life kinda drives that point home. I’ve had so many near death and serious life threatening situations; due to heath as well as just living. 

Do you want a current example being surrounded by the threat of death. Many people would say covid (whatever you want to call it.) is right now the major death threat. Many would also say that it is everywhere and its breathing down our necks constantly… It is a threat in so many ways. A perfect example for my topic. We try to live on but everywhere and everybody effective, affected, and talking about it. Why… Due to covid our lives have been turned upside – down and inside – out. Why? Because the threat of death is scary!

This post isn’t about covid tho. I am just trying to make a point the fear of death is truly scary. You never bern afraid of death before, never had it thrown inbyour face so dramatically. Lets be real death is scary point blank! No matter where your faith lies. And- if – when your always afraid of it – then you’re not fully living….  That verse Psalms 23:4 points out the true fact Death is everywhere constantly  threatening. To me that suns up depression pretty well too. Depression is a sickness based on fear, self worth ect… Always there hiding in the shadows waiting and wanting to attack! That sums up a lot actually.

With that said, It has not been easy for me to open up, let alone write for quite awhile now.

I haven’t been depressed, but I’ve been in the shadows of depression. For over a year now honestly. Not just because of Dad, but other things as well. I haven’t even touched my books in months. If you know me and follow me, you  know how important they are to me. It has taken me weeks just to write this post. I have been emotionally and a bit physically feeling like I am running  on fumes- out of gas.

Depression, fear, anxiety, and emotions, seems to been running  rampant. Fear, especially of the unknown, is really trying to take center stage. For a while it was successful at it. Not just for me, for so many otheres, I know and some I love, as well peopleI have briefly crossed paths with. Fear is a powerful enemy. Just as depression, loneliness and self-worth. All the above is more powerful now then ever… These stresses’ can really wipe you out, and severely damage your life. Not just mentally and emotionally, but also they can be physically crippling. I do not say that lightly. 😒

Usually its best to go talk to someone. I’ve got God, Jesus, and The HolySpirit. For that. This is my go to verse, the one I live by. “The Devil comes to steal, kill and destroy; but I come to bring Life and to bring it Abundantly! –John 10:10 Along with “I am the good Shepherd; the good shepherd sacrifices his life for his sheep” –John 10:11

= Jesus. Jesus is my Shepard. So I will fear no evil, like Psalms 23 says. Even when it gets gets hard.

Us – Believers / Christians ✝️

Personally I am just trying to adjust to a new lifestyle and re-figure out my place and goals. While I get through the grieving  process of loosing my dad, my dog and our cat last year. I do not like to mention or talk about the rough   hardships nor how negative it gets and feels at times. I don’t like to be weak or show weakness. But God showed me it is apart of the growth process and I needed to write about it.

That way I can help others like me maybe, you. I bet I am not the only one who feels down, and stressed too. But keep fighting for yourself, keep looking for the silver linings in life. They may be small but they can have huge impacts, if not now possibly later.  Either way they’ll encourage you to smile even if its just for a moment. Trust me. I know. That one smile is a small step towards more smiles.

For my fellow belivers  in Christ -Not my art but appropriate.

I remind myself everyday of all the  accomplished and stuff I have been through.. which is a lot… Also that I have a purpose and I owe it to God,  myself and my loved ones to stay positive and to keep smiling through it all. Especially when I don’t feel like it.  I suggest that you also remind yourself of your own accomplishments big or small. Along with your survivals as well… I highly recommend you build yourself up especially when you don’t feel like it.

Here’s a few  pictures  to briefly recap some of the hardships that I have lived through.

These images are proof if I can survive this I can get through the current and forthcoming temporary challenge too.

Its hard for me to be vulnerable. I truly try to stay tough and cheerful. But when I don’t express myself I end you ferling worse then before or have an emotional moment. I tried to keep all the moments  captured in images correctly ordered. It is a little hard to do via my cellphone. Sadly lost a lot of pictures due to computer and phone issues. Including the involuntary removals from social media sites. Thus, I don’t have many online anymore. I’ve learned that you just have to make the best of what you have. Easier said then done, I know… A lot of theses pictures are from previous blogs I’ve written. Some I may not have covered here but in preson, but will in my books. Don’t forget thatI and my mothe. Have some Video blogs on www.deeplyrootedinhim.net

  Now here are some more positive memorable achievements and moments from my life so far…

This is not all I’ve survivied or accomplished. I don’t have the time or space to go over each event. I have years worth of posts here from instagram and Facebook as well. For you to read if you really want to know more. I promise to keep  working on my books; those which I pray will change and help your life in a positive way. Not every day is promised so all I can do is give you the best I can and trust God with it.

I realized in doing this post just how much I’ve gone through and how little I’ve opened up about. Repression always cones out in some form. Sometimes not in the best complimenting ways. Thus it is better to talk about what goes on and what you neded. You matted. Don’t take the people in your life for granted, and open up to someone.

We are not alone. I  have friends, family, and a wonderful man. Even if i was by myself I have my faith in God. I see Jesus as my bestfriend. With the Father, Son, Holy Spirit, in my life. As you do too if you so desire. That gives me and you a reason to keep moving forward. 

I wake up and thank God for a new day. One full of possibilities and  chances to spread  love -joy, be productive, and spend time with the ones we care about.  Its not always easy for sure, but its better to try then give up. My passion is to spread love and joy. To encourage you that you are treasure. That you are loved and mattered especially to God.

Here are some places you can reach out to if you don’t know who to talk to or don’t want to discuss anything about it with people close to you…

Animal Crossing New Horizons


Hello friends!

Yep. I caved and bought Animal Crossing New Horizons. Honestly it was a game I wanted. I really liked the game cube one and haven’t played animal crossing since college years ago.

Instead – I was on Maple Story, The Sims 4, Wartunes and other games like those with local and long distance friends. I didn’t plan to buy Animals Crossing so soon. But my niece and nephew came to visit and I thought it would be a good way to keep them occupied. Sadly it didn’t finish downloading until the very last day they were here. Booo…. 😭 Darn Slow 🐌 network 😑.! At last we got to play together for the day.

And again when I went to visit them. ♥️

After watching me play Dad decided to try because he was interested in the fishing aspect 🎣 😄. Okay I cohereseded him a bit.

One of my sisters also decided to make a house on my Island. She wanted to try the game before buying it. That eventually got my mom interested in trying the game as well.

My island development and game play was very slow due to lack of experience. ➕ I stopped playing for a while when dad passed away suddenly at the end of April due to heart failure. 💔

I couldn’t say it any better Freckles…. 💔💔

My mom lost interest in the game. I however found that playing this game and my dad’s character oddly gave me peace. Oddly it really helped me grieve, mourn, and gave me some form of closure. Strange as it may be. Playing my dad’s character helps me feel close to him even though he is no longer here.

My island has a long way to go. I am spending lots of extra time crafting and swimming mainly staying in the month of April. I sometimes wonder, if I am the only one who has done this? Meaning -Played a family members in a game character or game who is no longer with you?

It still feels unrealistic that he’s gone…. 😅🙁💔 I wonder if I will ever fully over it? Probably not until I see him again in Heaven.

Honestly ACNH game seems really slow to start the first few weeks on the island. Espessially if you do not know what you are doing. There are tutorials extra. I but I really haven’t looked into any of that. I was eager to figure things out on my own. But because of that – My island is a mess and still in development… You can say I am just winging it. I was in April for almost 3 moths in game… Now I am back in June…. I play may way. I don’t think lingering behind counts as cheating….

If I could do it over. I think I would have done more nook island hoping to choose who moves in. I would also have liked to have saved up bells before splurging on clothes and furniture. I  also wouldn’t have time jumped my first month away. Which was an accident… It upgraded my store from small to large… I however lost the joy of being smaller-sized longer. Yes, I could start over, but I’d lose everything I worked so hard on, including all my dad’s achievements. So not gonna happen… Maybe  I’ll write my own advice post one of these days. The important stuff that you need to know. A lot of tutorials sadly don’t get cover ¹the things people ask me the most about in just one place. And often they are wrong or ever-changing info. I discovered Zack from Switch Force and Abdullah from Abdullah Nation who are on youtube.com They have been very helpful, entertaining, and encouraging.

My mom, sister and nephew eventually got their own games and Islands. I am really enjoying  Animal Crossing New Horizons. With them – my awesome family -teammates and my wonderful friends help. I think being able to do things together and visit each other is what makes this game so special! Again I adore the Sims games but you can’t really interact with people in real-time with that game.

Because of my Family and friends I feel I’ve had a great start with growing my Island.  While having a good time making and making many great memories!!! Here’s more pictures!

Here are some  more pictures. 😞 Sorry the pictures are not completely in order. I hope you can be understanding.

I became so invested in “ACNH” I spent a good amount of money a variety of Amiibos from villers to npcs for me and my family… I have yet to use any. But I do intend to make use of them.

Lastly, I want to show off my favorite villager. Anchovy. He is lazy easy-going, positive, and friendly. He is a cute brown bird. Just what I need in a friend right now. He was one of the first five had moved in. One of the three houses you have to build. Via Tom Nook’s instruction. He was the first of the three who moved in. I just love the ranch-style, dirt floor home for him. It truly fits his personality, especially with his love of bugs. I feel it is much better than the casino one they have for him say if he moved in not as your first five. That’s what the nookpoedia says his house would be at least for New Horizons.

Do you have any favorite Villaers? Any that give you a smile and enjoy?

When I’m free I visit mom and we game together ❤. Yes, you guessed it with our with Great Danes always by our sides. My silly Lilly.

I am sorry this post is so rough. I haven’t had much luck with writing lately. Anyways, I think I gave more than enough info for one post. I have more videos and images of ACNH on my Facebook gaming page. ONLYFOTHEGAMESAMJANE – but I have them marked as friends only for now. So I thought I would share my favorites with you here. Sadly I haven’t taken many good pictures yet 😕. I still hope you enjoyed this post tho.

Goodnight and God bless you today and always!!

I am here…


I have been on the go the past few months. I now have time to write. I think I’ll be getting a lot done too. Even with the crazy holiday season halfway over… I’ve already done much of the heavy work. I’ve been helping dad fix the driveway. The tree roots are raising the driveway up, and since they want to keep the trees we’ve been redoing certain areas and leveling the driveway out. First by removing the old driveway, using a aircompresser chizzle, then digging under the roots so they go down. then proceeding with re-taring the area. My main job is to dig up and shovel the old driveway ect, and replace the gravel with him…. Then together blowing out the craks and caulking the them up all along driveway to the road. Dad even did sone of the road as well… I’m always learning new things when I help dad. It’s not perfect, but it works! We got so much done, just before it snowed. We started before I left and finished after I came back.

Also while I was gone dad started redoing the back bathroom. He removed the old linoleum flooring and flooring and removeing the old toilet. I came back just in time to help him add the new stuff. Tho really he didn’t need my help. Dad is doing so much better then he was. I am truly impressed with his recovery. God is so good! We make a good team. We don’t always get along but we both work hard. We got it done just before company came!

Now I’m just gonna write while I relax in my pajamas. Just because I can! 😆 Yay- a writer’s life! I will get back to my youtube vblogs, my blog, and do some Facebook group this week I hope! I have a few more important tasks  first…

I will do my best to keep everyone updated so stay tuned! Don’t give up on your dreams or goals, any progress is still progress. So follow your dreams because you matter. Make sure you take time to breath and enjoy life too. My goal in life is tovspread joy and stop hate. I choose to be happy 😊 even when I don’t feel like it. Remember God supplies and miracles happen!I chose that book 📖 title for a reason!

Stay safe and God blesses you today and Always!!

The Forth and Last leg…Part 3


Hello Fellow friends,

Well, I am home now but I had a wonderful time with my man and his lovely family. I learned so much about him and all of them. We did so much with and without his family. My man and went on dates and walks. It was really nice. I got him some shirts he liked and some collector books he wanted. He got me a Totoro purse and wallet and some lotion and body spray too. It is not about the things, to me, the gifts are special because they are from the one I love! As for the rest of the family, they have to wait for Christmas…

When we spent time with his family as well as doing outings and everyday tasks.. We didn’t go to the beach or Disneyland but we did go to Medieval Times! I hadn’t been there since I was thirteen for my friend’s birthday in Florida. Here are some of the pictures I took. I hope they don’t mind me sharing them.

 

One weekend we watched movies and games. I even exchanged birthday and Christmas gifts as well with him. One of the weekends we had an outdoor bbq, watched a movie on a projector and did some rock painting, played soccer and other outdoor games.

 

I really enjoyed the one on one time with his mom too. We had a nice heart to heart talks. She even gave me a very sweet heartfelt gift from Starbucks as a surprise one night! It is special for so many reasons. It has all the state specialty emblems, I collect cups, it was a surprise, it showed she cared and was thinking of me.  I wish I could have done so much more for them! I wish I had got to know his dad more tho too.

 

I stayed for almost three weeks. When I had free time alone worked on writing my books in progress.

 

I can’t believe it is only a few days from Thanksgiving!! I look forward to coming back there often. It helps that the man I love has family in California. I totally felt at home with his family and in California. I was really nervous about staying with them but I think it went well. There was so much more I had wanted to do with them and for them. I miss them all so much. His family is my family as well. That’s how I feel in my heart. I never felt uncomfortable or out of place. I just wish I could bring them all back with me! It would sure make things easier for us all. California is one of the few states that I wouldn’t mind moving to. Though I am unable to take permanent residence there mainly because of my Medical specialists and health care requirements.

 

I can not believe I had to say goodbye. It really broke my heart. I cried so much. I keep telling myself it is not over tho and we will be together again soon. The most important thing is I have so many wonderful memories from this trip and all the trips I have been on this year. I can not express how much I appreciate everyone and everything.  To me making memories and spending time with the ones you care about is more important than anything else. Remember to take time for your loved ones and friends as well! I feel so refreshed and drained at the same time.

Stay safe and God blesses you today and Always!!

What is our Worth….


Let me ask you – How often do you wonder if what your doing has any purpose and meaning? How often do you question what your life is worth? To many people don’t see their own worth…. My aunt as an example. She was a: kind, smart, talented, caring, and fun actress who touched so many people ones she knew and didn’t ever meet. Sadly she never grasped her worth. She was so hard on herself, She would say I wish I could do better or was better. She was a wonderful woman who brought joy to so many. she touched so many lives in such great ways… Yet she didn’t value herself much.

We all live different lives, we all are unique individuals and we all have impact on others. It could be in our: local community; an online community – games, forums,chat-rooms, Facebook, YouTube instagram twitter, work; school; church; family; etc… Anytime you talk to someone else you are effecting or affecting their lives and day in some way. Do you make people smile? Or do you tear people down.. But….. He/she treats me like…… That doesn’t matter your not measuring their worth, you are measuring ours… We have need to take responsibly and be accountable how we treat others. You want to know what your worth is? Look at how you treat others..

We may say: I am who I am? I just want to be myself why do I have to be nice… The bible say treat others as you want to be treated. (Luke6:31)  Even if you don’t believe in the Bible or God, it is a good rule to live by. So let me ask you – How do you want others to treat you? Sadly others may not threat you kind and there are some who will never treat you the way you wish they would… But that doesn’t affect your Value! So what if there is one person who doesn’t appreciate you… If you see it or not there are people who you touch.

Lets talk about our appearance next. Are we what society says is: overweight, thin, sexy, tall, short, beautiful, handsome, homely, athletic, etc? What else do they say about us? Wait!!!!!!!! That’s labeling!!! We may fit into one of those categories but that does not define our worth! Those labels can act as boosters or most common as restraints. We tie ourselves down by what others say we are or what we can do. We need to stop doing that. Because let me tell you Your worth is un-measurable, your value is priceless!

It doesn’t matter what you do, how you or how you look. Only you an decide your importance, our value, our worth. We are invaluable, Priceless, irreplaceable, precious, incomparable, unequaled.

I challenge you to do as I am doing: Tell yourself you are important, you are beautiful, handsome, sexy, and awesome! Tell yourself you can succeed and that you wont give up on whatever you are reaching for. DO it as often as you need to and you will start to be happier. We all get emotional and have down days but its just a moment in time, and it will pass. Stay strong and don’t be afraid to talk to others when you need encouragement and support. You have purpose and meaning. No one can be  better you, you are un-matched.

I love ya – don’t forget you are awesome!!!

There was a massive fire only a street away from our house! It was super scary!!! It was started by a bad power-line. The flames ran up the side of the mountain and on to the bluff we live… It was defiantly life changing… Fear is powerful, it is brain numbing too at times… I rarely have faced a situation where I lost the power to think. I was mentally and physically frozen for a few minuets. So I prayed… Because that is what I do when I know not what to do, I ask God. And then I made mental notes of where the animals were, where what I needed to save was… I was faced with the reality. It is really interesting what really goes though your mind when faced with the question- There is a fire, what is the one thing you save? If the fire reached us, I would loose so many items, some collectors, none of them as important as the my family and pets… The first thing I thought of, was I have no pet carrier for the cats, what will I do with them? Let them outside to fend for themselves if it comes to it, animals are smart and they have instincts would they make it? No… I’ll try and wrap them in a towel put them in the car hope I don’t drop them on the way down… If I must I will… I told myself Then I quickly found my dog leash, and got her downstairs. (I live on a second story with stairs on the outside.) I kept a close eye on the fire. I have to say the Firemen were fast, brave and awesome! The news said we had only seven fire trucks, but I counted about thirty-three of all types.. There was even helicopters working hard to put the fire out!

I was about to pack up and get us all of us out of the house but then I looked over to the empty field next door and saw about ten deer peacefully eating grass and sleeping. After that I felt peace and I knew we would be safe. Just then the wind shifted and instead of blowing north it stated to blow west… Which was good! Soon after that They had the fire out near the homes, but the fire moved fast west… The poor firemen worked well into the night and into the next morning to get the massive fire out.

We were so blessed not to have any homes or people hurt in our small town. The firemen did an awesome job! God is so good! Sometimes still when I see smoke I quickly go over the emergency list I have prepared in my mind, what I need to do etc as i it were a natural reaction… Fear is a funny thing and very powerful… This whole thing was super scary but a great lesson of faith and a real test. One which I am glad we didn’t have to take!

I’m back to work!


Hello,

I’m back home and off to work.

My sisters wedding was beautiful. I was very happy to have spent time with all the family. It was a  small but wonderful wedding,  one of the best I have been to! Plus it was a mini  family reunion! She is so blessed so many people wanted to be there for her joyous day.  The only thing missing were my  brothers and aunt Christine. I still fel sad that Shane is now in heaven. But I know he is in a better place and I will see him again one day. I just hope he  was able to look down and see her day.. Funny, I always though that line was a little cheesy,  never thought it was possible. I mean I know they are always wit us.. Bit to say that myself… I feel the dept  of those words…  Pardon me while I go cry…

My Sister Amelia and I have come a long way in our relationship.  I  realized we both were a bit envious of each-other.. Silly how envy  can tear people apart.  I am so happy for her, beyond words. I think both my sisters are blessed with wonderful husbands!   Now it’s my turn..   (I know, when the time I right I will have mine. I am not in a hurry!)  My nephew was a doll!! I adore him… I miss him tons. I can’t wait till  I see them next time!

I’m sorry I meant to keep this short.  Last thing….

My files are a mess on the computer and in hard copies, andmy net is limited…. Thank God I have my computer back tho. I can’t wait to finish some of these books… I am so grateful that have the time and help when I need it. I  have a bad habit of jumping in headfirst and catching up latter…  Now her  I am back to work and regretting my quick filing system.  I have a lot of organizing, updating,  formatting  rearranging and lots of writing to do. Where is that personal assistant I’ve been meaning to   find… lol… I would love to have an office  to go to: with a huge desk,  multiple display monitors, several computers, and a staff to help me.   Maybe one day?  Till then I have a apt, with a small office, 2 filing cabinets full of research and hard copies print0uts of my work, a Great Dane who is leaning when to settle down while I work… Mom said shes never met a Great Dane so hyper…  God knew what I needed tho,  I would be so bored and lonely with out her. I have  a demanding but wonderful neighbors.  I love the new place now, tho I have only been actually home here 1 moth, its like living in a  yearlong vacation spot out of a book I’d read…  So many wonderful  wildlife, and I’m up high, so I have great views all around me… Thank you so much for sticking with me and continuing to support me with encouragement and pushing me to work… I have so many  books in progress, I’ve narrowed it down to just 3  for now till they are finished….  God bless you all, and I pray you have favor in all you do!
