ruby reds, canon 20 d

i am not making any resolutions.

but i am
making a list of hopes.

i hope my friends and family have really, really, good things happen to them.
i hope the war will end.
i hope we will find the right person to lead this country.
i hope my business will explode. in a good way.
i hope i will be able to travel to the ocean, to the mountains, to the desert,
and to the jungle.
i hope to contribute in small and big ways to the healing and
growth of others.
i hope the hard times will be kept to an extreme minimum.

and the lighter side of hopes include......

i hope i will learn to ride a dirt bike.
i hope i will learn to be a better skeet shooter.
i hope my skirts will find more room around the waist.
i hope i get to see my college friends missy and krissy.
i hope i get to visit with the california chicas.
i hope to take a ton of road trips to small little towns in big open places.
i hope to continue to hear from all of you....

diamonds on the souls of her shoes....

sparkly gifts, canon 20 d

i spent the past few days in sunny florida,
surrounded by the love of my mom and her
dear friends. christmas night we celebrated by
watching the sun sink into the gulf...we laughed,
we danced, we dined... it was delightful...

for no reason and a hundred different reasons,
i have always dreaded this time of year.
this was the first time in a long time i felt
genuinely happy.

today i am back home, the snow if falling,
and my cats are curled up beside me.

my heart is full...

what they say. . .

barga, italy ~ canon 20d

it's fate.
it's god's will.
it's meant to be.
it's karma.
it's luck.
it's a curse.
it's the law of attraction.
it's magic.
it's destiny.
it's your fault.
it's their fault.
it's payback.
it's to teach a lesson.
it's manifestation.
it's the power of positive thinking.
it's bad energy.
it's part of the plan.
it's a blessing in disguise.
it's natural.
it's life.

hard. . . . . .

came with morning coffee, canon 20d

i havent forgotten how for some the holidays
can be especially tough. sometimes they are still hard for me.
go through a divorce, a death, a bad diagnosis,
infertility, financial stress ~ and well, this time of year
can be brutal.
sometimes, just the stress of being around family
is enough to rattle the cage.

so today i just want to offer my prayer and my thoughts
to all of you who are having a rough go at it this year.

do what you need to do to take care of yourself. be gentle.
dont over do it. set boundaries. try to surround
yourself with people who love you. its okay to say no and its
okay to be honest. try not to isolate though. do something

and know that the build up to the holidays is usually much
tougher than the day itself.

*lets be sure to remember those who are struggling right now.. . .
just a little extension of kindness and sensitivity can go a long way...

dog day.

sand sandwich, canon 20 d

there are days meant for the company
of a sweet pup, To Kill A Mockingbird, chicken noodle
soup, and a couch that swallows you up.
