Music Monday

This song has been pulling at me for a month now. It has become one of my favorite ones these days and I just love listening to it over and over again. Maybe it hits home for me and my past. I don't quite know, but I do know that all I have to do is call on Him and He will always be there.

I'm sharing this particular video because I found that with the band explaining themselves at the beginning, it helps reiterate that music comes from the soul and just speaks in soo many ways. Whatever kind of mood your in, or whatever kind of day your having...there will always be a song singing from it..all you have to do is listen.

Third Day singing Call My Name

Have a marvelous day,
Peace out and luvs to ya!

God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary work.

I am a lucky person because I have friends. Now you might think....why is that lucky, we all have a friend or two. Well I'm especially lucky because I have these friends that I have known now for almost 9 years and they are truly amazing. What makes them soo unique and different than any other friend I have is that they are true angels sent from above. I met these girlfriends when I was pregnant with my youngest I said, almost 9 years ago. Its the amazing world of the Internet that allows us to meet up on a day to day basis and have a cup of joe to drink and chat amongst each other. Tho we might not "see" each other everyday, we don't let that stop us from having a true meaningful friendship. One that does not compare to any other.

These friends will allow you to be yourself, allow you to tell your deepest darkest secrets and not have to worry about if they will spill the beans. These girlfriends will be there no matter what....No Matter What!!!! Its like saying they have an unconditional love of friendship for each of us. Don't get me wrong, there has been a tiff from time to time, but life is too short to hold grudges and dwell on the negative. We build bridges and get over it.

These angels sent from above will lend a shoulder to cry on, hold out a hand to help lead the way, encourage your sorrow with a smile soo bright, and teach you in ways that you didn't think was possible. To these amazing friends I will ever be so grateful for. I will always cherish them for who they are and what they represent. Its very hard to come by these types of friends. Its a friendship that you just don't take for granted. God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary work.

This past Friday, one of these amazing and most dear friends lost her battle to cancer and has gone on to relax in the daisy fields of heaven. She was a true fighter and warrior, one that wouldn't take any gruff from anyone. She now is in the most beautiful place of all and no longer suffering from the pain that this world has caused her.

She will be truly missed and there will always feel like there is an empty chair sitting there next to the table where we all gather at. She will never be forgotten, that is for sure. She has impacted the lives of soo many that her greatness and lessons of life will be carried on through each and everyone of us...her friends. Its like the saying...once a friend, always a friend. Even tho shes not here with us no more, she will always be a friend.

So heres to the friends we have, heres to the friends that are yet to come, heres to the times that we cherish and the times we will never forget......

Peace out, luvs ya....

One of those days.....

What is it that makes us go from completely "normal" one minute to a complete and utter mess the next? Why is it one day we are totally fine and the next we are the ugliest person on the planet, we are the fatest person around, we have the messiest house ever and man who would dare step foot in our place? Everything we have, something is so wrong with it and we can find flaws in every little thing!

Yes my dear friends there is an answer to that burning question and even tho we all hate to admit it....we all know this deep dark secret. Even tho we totally hate to admit it...even to ourselves (in the moment). The true answer can always be found and blamed on our one true enemy.

We take responsibility for our feelings and answers...oh no...we can not have that!! This one we have to blame on someone else. For it is not like us on a "normal" day to even fathom acting or thinking this way.

I know, I know...we are taught to take responsibility for our actions and never to lay blame on others. The way that pleases God and results in spiritual growth is to accept personal responsibility for our actions. (now whining)...But can't we just blame this one on our mean spirited, quite hurtful and self centered Aunt Flo? I mean, what harm would that bring? Its not like she would mind that we blame her.

Plus we would have a definite answer to "the" burning question, and that just only makes us more knowledgeable when others may ask....Why are you acting all weird like today?

Peace out and maxi pads....
Luvs ya

Music Monday

Music comes from the soul and tells a story. Music touches us in so many different ways and really shares how our day/week may be. Ive always been a big fan of music and try to always listen to the story that the artist is sharing. Some songs I love just because they are catchy and fun to sing along to. Others I love because they hit home, they share what I'm feeling, or its like the artist stepped into my soul and is telling my story. Any which way you look at it, music is just an awesome sound. God granted so many people the ability to give the world a beautiful experience. I'm just privileged to be able to have the opportunity to hear them.

My Monday Music pick for this week is Heidi Newfield with her song Johnny and June. I chose this song because this is how I feel towards my husband....

Soooooo whats your song this week...what/who is speaking to you? I'd love to hear your Music Monday pick.

Awesome day and Luvs to ya.........

That time again.....

With the crisp, rainy weather that we had to truly marks the end of another era...the end of another summer. Time to dig out those jeans and sweatshirts, and figure out what your going to do with all those straggly looking plants in the pots that you cant bear to just throw away because they were once oh sooo pretty and ohh soo part of the family LOL. But is getting to that time of year again when we say adios to the hot summer sun and hello gloom and doom. Now I really don't mind the jeans and sweatshirt (as long as they still fit from last year) but I don't really care for the jeans and sweatshirt with another shirt underneath with a huge coat over top.
But what are we to do about it...there really is nothing we can. We just gotta go with the flow and realize Mother Nature knows what shes doing. Or we hope so anyways. I know its all part of the cycle and if you live in the Midwest like I do, seasons do come and go. I guess we must look at the positive in all that we can. I mean when the leaves do change colors, they are truly magnificent in all their glory. You can drive to wonderful areas and see the bright hues of yellow, orange and red. Then there is the lovely bonfires at night that help take the chill off while you sit around swapping stories with wonderful friends. There is the fun hay rack rides at the apple orchards and pumpkin patches. There is no more mowing the yard....OK I would rather mow the yard than rake leaves or shovel snow. But I am trying to look at the positive in all that we are given.
So it has officially started here...the beginning path to the next season. Has it started there for you yet?

Oh and since its been colder and we have been inside...we have watched some television recently. Well this one commercial caught my ear....not my eye...but my ear. Not that I'm a big fan of them, but the McDonald's McRib is back and they have a new commercial out. Well the song that they play is just sooooo.......ohhh catchy. Soo cheery. I kinda like it, yes I do. So what did I do...yep I checked it out. And come to find out...hes pretty cute if I do say so. And he has some other good songs too...check them out....Matt White.

So that's that for today. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods and you are staying some what dry and warm today!!!!

Peace out and luvs ya!!!!
