I’m a native Texan who moved to Colorado in 2007. Still, people ask me all the time, “Are you from the South somewhere?” because I apparently still have a Texas accent despite my best efforts to tone it down.

I love God, people, and life! I am completely enchanted by beautiful words, colors, designs and nature. I love to crochet and knit, so I tend to live surrounded by beautiful yarn of every color and texture you can imagine. I believe in the healing power of touch and love. Hugs are the best delivery system I know of to share that healing power so go hug someone already!

My husband and I have been married for over twenty years. I have two wonderful grown sons, a delightful daughter-in-law, and a grandson with whom I am completely besotted!

I love to write poetry, little stories and essays about all the things I love, but with a view to encouraging and inspiring other people. We all need a pick-me-up sometimes and I hope I can be a pick-me-up to someone else every day in some way. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find something here to brighten your day and encourage you on your path!

Peace and love,

    1. Wow! Thank you so much for this Nicky! I’m stunned, quite frankly, but your timing could not have been better. Today has been a tough one physically and somewhat emotionally and I wasn’t even sure I’d be able to post anything today. Then I received the notification about your nomination and laughed and cried at the same time! God bless you and I hope you have a good weekend!



      1. You are very welcome. I enjoy your blog and wanted others to find you to. I am glad you are pleased and happy it came at the right time for you. Quite the same situation when I saw the nomination for mine. Thanks for a great blog.
