For 2018

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Who Inspires you?

Crystal Mary Lindsey bestowed on me an award. Awards are tough because I love getting them, don't like the hard work tho, and sometimes I feel when I forward them I hurt the ones I leave out when they say pick five. Plus I'm going on vacation in 1 day! However this looked easy enough and it is something that is VERY important to me.

This was a wonderful encouragement, to laugh at life and see the bright side of everything.

I have tried so hard in life - to do this, to live this, to teach this (especially to my kids), to help others - and I have to tell you - sometimes I do fail, but I never give up believing how important it is to try to encourage others, to laugh, and to TRY to see the bright side of others.

Now one of my heroes is Mother Teresa:

“Joy is prayer - Joy is strength - Joy is love - Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. She gives most who gives with Joy.” —Mother Teresa(1910-1997); Founder Of The Missionaries Of Charity

And I don't have time to list all the blogs, but I would like to forward this to:

Sally, Linda, Betty, Anne, Shelia, Elaine, Fran, Sherry, Cathy, Marjorie,Sara, Debbie, Gwendolyn, Becky, Spencer, Tanna, Carol, Monica, Angela, Maria, Cheryl, Betty, Susan, Cindy, Barb, Noni, Barbara, Deb, Joyce, Melanie, Cheri, Angie, Joycee, Patricia, Jenny, Katie, Terry, Charlene, Helen, Jamie, JeanMac, Mollye, Jo, Nancy, Sue, Rina, Nancy, Rose, Spencer, Debbie, Lloyd, Stella, Denise, Judy, Lola, Cheryl, AND Crystal!

If you are wondering if it is you I mean - YES IT IS!

And if I forgot anyone I am sorry - I'm tired, scattered brained, and busy.

I guess what I want to say it thanks to all my bloggie mates!!!!!!!!!! You have brought me joy, encouragement, and brightness.

Anyway what I'd like to put out there is for everyone to tell me one of their heroes.

Helping others is very important and Mother Teresa was an amazing woman. Sandie, so are you.

One of my heroes, huh? Okay. I love Susan Branch. She's an artist and writer. She has an adorable website, too. She brings joy and happiness to thousands of other lives. Check her out.

I also love Alexandra Stoddard, interior designer, writer, and all around inspirational woman. She has a website, too.

Thanks for your wonderful posts, Sandie. Sincerely, susan

You are our sweetheart! I love your posts! You are the the lovely talkative and rambling one! (your words!) You are such a fantastic and creative researcher of new experiences, we know you as a wise woman, NOT OLD IN THINKING, NEVER! You always build us up, and you always have something wonderful to talk about!

We will never forget, it's the rambling, making new friends, and having fun, and yes, we love your chattiness!

You bring us joy, encouragement, and brightness, too, Sandie!!! Thank you so very much. Encouraging one another is a special gift to each of us. I'd say my blogmates have been my inspiration recently! I am thankful for each and every one.
