These past two weeks have roared by… The beach was wonderful. Chincoteague, Virginia is a beautiful place! It has a mix of everything which is perfect for our family – hiking, sun and sand time, the ponies, seashell collecting, crabbing and surf fishing, and the pool at the hotel was great for some downtime. It had that nostalgic beach theme but without all the crowd and mess like at Ocean City. This is a highly recommended vacation spot, we will definitely go back again – if not a move to there in the future, hmm maybe a beach cottage for…

As I get ready to head to the beach for a long weekend, I leave you with this, ” May you always have a shell in your pocket and sand between your toes” and “God so loved the world, he gave us the beach”. To Chincoteague, VA we go…

…when I was 19… ~ I wouldn’t have gotten married. It wasn’t right for me, we weren’t right for each other. ~ I would have completed college, and majored in Psychology. ~ I would have exercised more, and kept up with it! ~ I would have saved my money. ~ I would have quit smoking then… and not eight years later. ~ I would have spent more time with my family and less time with the friends I no longer have. “Don’t waste your time on people who don’t spend time on you.” ~ I would have told my family I love…

This year I am turning 30 and when I look back over the last ten years I see a lot has happened but I haven’t accomplished the things I wanted…

        At the beginning of this week I vowed to find inspiration every day. Since then I search, starting as soon as I wake up, to almost “pick” out what my inspiration will be. The thing about inspiration is sure you can develop it within yourself but the truest ones come by surprise. The challenge I set for myself was to help me learn to see everything in a positive light and to always find something special in each day. I continued through my day, soon losing focus of “picking” my daily inspiration. I spent the first part of my…

This morning started out challenging… I woke up achy and tired and realizing I only had about $18 to make it through the rest of the week. Adding to it we were out of lunchmeat and out of peanut butter so with that fueling the fire I snapped that I’d have to stop in my time crunch to spend money I didn’t have to pick something up for my son for lunch at his summer care. Quietly my son and I walked out to the car – his water bottle dropping and rolling all over the parking lot. My son…
