Pay It Forward

Today is “Pay It Forward” day.

A quote I saw on Facebook: “If you want more kindness in the world, put it out there.” So true!

Personally, I  spent years just being mad and complaining about the things I really hated about this world. Thank God I realized THAT doesn’t do any good. Change happens when we take action.

Of course my passion is helping animals. I feel like they are the forgotten. Thought of as not important by many. It’s taken me a long time to figure out HOW to help animals, but then came my blog (you can read more about this on my About page). Even still I find myself Continue reading

Trying A New Thing

Not too long ago I mentioned I was going to a class where we would make a glass bowl. Something I have never done before. I like to do crafty things occasionally and I especially like trying new things.

Deciding on colors & design. Gluing glass together.

A few people mentioned they would like to see the finished bowl so I am sharing it with you today…but first Cino needed to check it out. Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Beautiful Soul

It’s Sunday, time to kick back, relax, and remember.

I wanted to dedicate this post to remembering those who have passed. Death is never easy for those left behind. When you lose someone close to you, you are never the same. I shared the poem below shortly after my sister passed away last year. I thought it was fitting to share it again now. Her birthday is next week, so I have been thinking a lot about her lately.

Even when it’s not someone you personally know, but the loss of a super star, it can be devastating. The following are pictures I took when I visited Paisley Park after Prince passed away last year (April 21st, 2017). It was so much more sparse than what it had been when the news first got out that he was gone. By the time I went most of it had blown away, the flowers had died, and so on.  Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): A Spring Snow Storm

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back & relax!

Today I have a little story in the form of a poem. I hope you enjoy.

A turkey out for a stroll
When the weather takes a turn
Shelter found under a roof’s edge
Until something causes him concern

Footsteps coming towards him
A person with a camera in hand
Makes him start to move away
Wings flapping, I think I made him mad
