Happy Friday EveGood morning y’all! I hope your week has gone well and you are feeling well. I am a little behind on reading and even doing some posts I wanted to because I have had a nasty stomach bug for several days now. It has been difficult but I am on the mend and do have so much I want to share with you!

In preparation for the weekend, I think a great quote will help through the last day of the week! I do hope you enjoy this quote as much as I do!present situationWe all go through difficult times in life and in that moment it isn’t easy to remember that things will get better. I do believe that everything that happens in life happens for abe someones sunshine reason and when they are supposed to. There is a part of me that believes there is no such thing as an accident and everything is just part of life we were destined to live. 

Thank you so much for stopping by my site today. I am really looking forward to reading your thoughts on this post and I will respond as quickly as I can. I hope you have a great day and lovely weekend!! Please remember that I am always sending you LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

Monday corrects past weekGood morning y’all! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and you are ready to tackle the new week ahead with much determination! Monday’s are a fresh start to our goals and we can just forget all the negative from last week because that is all in the past. My thoughts are, maybe I wasn’t offered a new job last week, but at least I did have an interview that I think went well! I am trying to think nothing but positive thoughts about this job situation!!

Y’all know that I think starting a new week off with an uplifting quote can make a big difference. Just out of curiosity do these quotes make a difference in your day? The quote I am sharing today holds so much truth in my eyes, but I do want to read what you think as well!pessemist

I know y’all probably already know this about me, but I do feel strongly that positive thoughts produce positive things in life. Whereas negative thoughts produce negative and unwanted things in life!

Thank y’all for stopping by my site this morning. I hope you have a wonderful start to the week and you are feeling the best you can! I really am looking forward to read what you think of this quote I shared today because I know your thoughts are always brilliant!! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

Rain, Rain, please go away!

Rain stay awayGood evening y’all! I am just curious, how do y’all feel about rainy days? Personally, I have very mixed emotions about this for SO many reasons. In one sense, rainy days give us the perfect excuse to not leave the house! We don’t have to get up shower, fix our hair and put makeup on for that matter. Staying at home where we can stay warm, dry and cozy snuggled up on the couch with a loving pet/pets or our significant other.

The rainy days 🌧also give the opportunity to binge watch Netflix, which I am guilty of with Gossip Girls. Try not to laugh too hard at me with this, but I know it is kind of rainy days goodamusing! If you don’t care much about Netflix or not have it we can sit around watching our favorite old movies or new ones we want to watch, read that book we have been pushing off far too long, catch up on much-needed and well-deserved rest or even just do literally nothing at all! The part about catching up on rest can be very easy because the sound of the rain 🌧 falling down can be very soothing or at least it is for me!

On the other hand, rain 🌧 can and does produce much higher amounts of horrible i-am-in-pain-you-just-dont-know-it-cause-i-smile-through-the-rain-and-refuse-to-show-it.pain.When you are already forced to deal with massive pain on just a normal day, the additional pain endured can be down right miserable.

When all there is to view outside is rain clouds ☁ and dreary weather, the simple lack of sunshine can cause much sadness. If you combine rainy 🌧 weather with someone who might already be experiencing other personal struggles, this can possibly send someone into a very negative tailspin of depression. However, it is just as likely this horrible combination can simply create temporary isolation from others and the outside world. The temporary isolation and depression can improve in its own time, which really can’t be rushed.

Even though it is very common for rainy  days 🌧 to cause minor drowsiness, it can progresssleep into pure exhaustion. This feeling can also include a lack of motivation and ambition. During this time, it isn’t easy to get the most simple tasks completed because the normal energy we have escapes us for a short time.

When ALL you have seen for 12 days straight is rain 🌧, the absolute WORST thing possible  to do is read or watch the weather updates. I know this because that is exactly what I did on Friday afternoon. It was so sad because the weatherman was predicting 60%-80% chances of rain 🌧 for several more days. I mean come on, it already rained 🌧 for 12 days and there was flooding in many areas. Sometimes I am logical and understand that predictions can change several times without much warning. I guess we are all just at the mercy of Mother Nature and we all know she will do whatever she pleases with little to no explanation!

break-from-rain.jpgNow on a positive note, finally after all those days of rain, I am getting a three-day break from rain!!! Hopefully all of my excitement won’t scare off the sun ☀ in my near future! I was thrilled when I woke up today and saw that foreign beauty ☀ in the sky! It wasn’t really cold today where I live, but it was incredibly windy. Honestly I would much prefer windy, chilly and sunny as opposed to cold and wet any day!

Thank y’all for taking time out of your evening to stop by my site! I do always appreciate all imagesof your support and great comments. Let me just ask, how was your weekend? I do hope you had a pleasant one and were able to do the things that bring you the most joy. I hope the last few hours of the weekend are delightful and you are getting yourself prepared for a new week! I do look forward to reading your comments and I promise to respond as quickly as I can! Never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

Fellow Blogger Recognition!

lifespa-image-sunshine-mountains-flowers-rainbow-550pixelsGood morning y’all! I hope you are having a very pleasant week so far! It really amazes me just how fast February is flying by, but I guess that is just the way life works. I am going to continue on with something that I find pretty exciting by recognizing fellow bloggers that I find astounding. In my personal opinion, I think you will see them the same way!

The very special person I want to give a sincere shout out to 3841fd788e417453f0f0d9d949aa6c16--fibromyalgia-warriorstoday is, Kim at https://itrippedoverastone.com. Kim battles life with an illness I was partially familiar with because I do have a friend that has the same illness, Fibromyalgia. Even though I was aware of the basic information about this illness, Kim has taught me MUCH more.

Like Multiple Sclerosis, which y’all know I deal with, Fibromyalgia is a very unpredictable illness. Kim never allows for anything to hold her down and fights her way through anything and everything with kindness and grace, which I do admire wholeheartedly. It seems like no matter what the hardships sending lots of loveare she endures, she keeps a firm hold onto the internal energy she possess. 

I am sure I have thanked Kim numerous times before now, but I want to say how much I value her and all she is able to share. It can’t hurt to say it again though, thank you Kim for being the fabulous person you are! I do firmly believe if you haven’t already viewed Kim’s site, where she shares brilliant knowledge with every post, you will be asyou are incredible thankful as I am for HER! Now of course if you already have visited Kim’s site, you will probably agree with everything word I have shared!

Thank y’all for taking the time to stop by my site today. I do always appreciate your support and view you fantastic comments as way of creating tender communication. Again, if you weren’t already aware of Kim’s site, https://itrippedoverastone.com please try to take a few moments to drop by. I know you will love and value her as much as I already do! Please remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

Fellow Blogger Recognition!

huge shout outGood morning y’all! I hope your week has started off well and of course I hope you are feeling the best you possibly can! I would like to pick back up with recognizing fellow bloggers that I truly find amazing. The ones I have already mentioned, I hope you have been able to visit their sites as I am sure you will enjoy as much as I have!

The spectacular lady I want to bring attention to today is Angela at https://fuckms.ca/. Angela lives with Multiple Sclerosis in Canada. This courageous woman has been through her fair share of struggles that would have discouraged most people, but Angela continues fighting a good fight with so much strength and determination!

Now, living with any chronic illness is a struggle in a country, like the United States for instance, thatyou are incredible doesn’t offer “free healthcare” and instead charges SO much money for it and still doesn’t cover everything, but it is still very demanding in a country that does offer free healthcare, like Canada. Angela went through hell and back with her employer, which is a real shame! I mean, it is hard enough to deal with MS day in and day out, but to also have to battle with an employer that has absolutely NO compassion or understanding makes it even more difficult. It really seems that when others do not understand an illness, they just fear the unknown and don’t care to learn more about it. I call this behavior pure ignorance, but I am sure most of us have dealt with this at some point in our life. I actually feel sorry for them because there isn’t any help to cure this horrible behavior.

sending lots of loveWith the hard times I have faced over time, I always find the honesty Angela shares very uplifting and inspiring. Angela is one of the most real and kind people I am ❤ honored enough to call a friend, 😊even though we spell things slightly different!😊 Just kidding Angela! I do remember a few months ago when I made a relatively negative, but honest post  because I was dealing with some terrible MS issues. Angela ❤ was kind enough to email me directly just to check on me. This was so touching and actually restored my diminished hope in humanity.

I strongly urge you to, if you have not already visited Angela site https://fuckms.ca/ to never-let-a-stumble.jpgcheck her out! I think once you do, you will see how creative, talented and truly encouraging she is, there will NEVER be a day you will regret it! The amount of understanding Angela has is pretty amazing! I have and always will appreciate Angela for the woman she is! Angela,  I am ❤ thankful for the friendship we have created and hope you will never forget that I am always here for you❤!

Motivational Monday!

monday_motivationGood morning y’all! I hope you had a lovely weekend and you were able to enjoy yourself. It isn’t always easy to do the things we love to do because we might not have the energy to do so, or we might not be feeling our best. I do believe that once we find ways work around the struggles we will deal with, our lives can be full of all we should have.magic monday

Y’all already know that I think Monday isn’t just the start of a new week, but it is a great time to forget about anything and everything that didn’t go well last week and start fresh. If we can just view last week as a distant memory, letting go of that negativity can only allow the positive into our lives!

I would like to share a great quote with y’all today and I hope you will find it as motivating as I do. I try my best to only share uplifting quotes with y’all every Monday because it could actually help make your week a little brighter. life is 10

 I do feel that everyone can view things in a different way and I always look forward to having the chance to read your incredible views. I will say, I do think the way we react to situations can either make the situation better or far worse. When I am faced with difficult times I often need to take a step back and think before I say or do anything I can’t take back. Motivation-Monday-QUOTE-2

Thank y’all for visiting my site today! I hope you have a lovely day and you are feeling the best you possibly can. I do promise to respond to all comments just as quickly as I can! I am working on another Fellow Blogger Recognition and should have it posted soon and I know that you will enjoy this fabulous lady’s blog just as much as I do! Please never forget that no matter how I am feeling or what I may be going through, I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and positive vibes!

Tribute to Poppy

❤My Poem for my Grandfather (Poppy). A man who will never be forgotten.❤


It’s been more than 5 years,

Since we lost you

Today will always be your daywpid-screenshot_2015-09-07-16-12-50_1

I will continue to celebrate

this day in your honor

as it was the day your journey began

I think of all the lives you touched

Gracing them with your loving ways

Because of you

the world made sense

It was a better place

poppys gravewithout you here

nothing has been

or ever will be the same

You gained your wings

To be the angel you always were

I still feel your presence

Especially when times get unbearable

You ease my struggles

By being my loving guardian angel

I cry tears of joy and painpet-tombstones-quotes-09

Joy for the times shared

Pain because I will never stop missing you

Talk to you so often

Still hearing voice so softly

Our bond was strong

and will never be broken

tribute-1It’s been so long without you here

but your memory is held close

I know someday

we will fly together

Soaring about the clouds

But until that day comes

your light will guide me

Believing I will be reunited

With the part of my heart

Friday EveGood morning y’all! I hope your week is going well and you are ready for the weekend! How are y’all feeling? I have had a lot of discussions about how things are going for me and I would really love to hear about you more. I don’t know about you, but I get tired of only talking about myself. Your lives matter to me as well!

The weeks are still feeling a little longer for me, so of course I do think an uplifting quote may be beneficial! I do try to share quotes that hold meaning for myself and hope they will do the same for you! I am looking forward to reading your thoughts about this quote!Rains it poursY’all know that I do my very best to spread as much positivity as I possibly can because I still think there is WAY too much hatred and negativity in the world. We all go through hard times in our life and sometimes those bad times come in waves, but once we get imagespast those times, there will be sunshine and happiness again! Going through hard and painful situations only makes us stronger and one day we will feel the strength we have within us!

I hope y’all have a great day and you are feeling the best you possibly can! It is so important to always take things one step at a be someones sunshinetime and not try to do too much. Good things come to those who wait or at least that is what I have been told. I really hope you are enjoying my Fellow Blogger Recognition posts and you are meeting new amazing people!

Midweek Recognition!

Happy WednesdayHappy Wednesday y’all! I hope your week is going great so far and you are feeling the absolute best you possibly can. I am sorry because I am a little behind on most everything right now because I have been feeling a little under the weather. I am not sure if I am feeling so awful because I have a cold or it is probably even more likely it’s the massive amount of stress I am feeling right now, Who knows?

As y’all already know I have many fellow bloggers I admire that A-garden-visitordeserve much recognition. I wanted to share each one of them with you so if you haven’t been able to visit their site, maybe you can soon!

The amazing blogger I want to share with you today is very humble and more than likely will not agree with my views, but I am leaving it up to you to determine who is right! Of course I do think you will agree with me that Beth, at http://bethybrightanddark.com/, is brilliant and her honesty is astonishing. 

Without even trying, Beth offers me SO much hope, strength and encouragement. Beth was 1bd08e94a39f2f317ac499110972374bdiagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in December of 2015 and continues to fight a good fight daily. Through the words she is able to share regarding her thoughts and experiences related to this unpredictable illness (MS), disease modifying treatments (DMT), Physical Therapy (PT) and Occupational Therapy (OT) you can feel her determination! I do think it is the combination of her sass and pure determination she can get through any situation life throws her way. 

Beth is a lot like myself, as we both do not like to cry in front of don't let your illness define youothers. This doesn’t have anything to do with viewing crying as a sign weakness, but everything to do with not wanting to add any additional stress to our families. Beth always inspires me with her kindness, ability to care, never-ending amount of understanding and her killer sarcastic personality!

I know I have already thanked Beth many times before and told her how amazing and encouraging I find her to be, but just in case she has forgotten, “THANK YOU Beth for being your incredible self!” Please never lose that fight within you!sending lots of love

I wanted to thank y’all for stopping by my site today. Each and every one of you have been so fantastic to me during my entire time within the blogging community, especially lately as I have been struggling. Your love and encouraging words are appreciated more than words can even begin to say!

I do hope if you haven’t already been able to visit Beth’s site, you will try stopping by http://bethybrightanddark.com/ when you have a few extra minutes. Without a shadow imagesof a doubt, I think you will enjoy reading every words of Beth’s posts and find her to be extremely strong and motivating!

I do look forward to reading your thoughts about this post and I do promise to respond as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of       ❤ love, comfort and many positive vibes!
