“Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.” Rumi
Inspiration: Happy Father’s Day… my light on the fearless path
You might not be here
But I know your spirit’s near
Each tear and smile … caught
Whenever I’m down
Your comforting light appears
Telling me: Be Strong!
Happy Father’s Day
My light on the fearless path
Guiding me each day
Each Father’s Day, I experience my father’s absence differently. Some years, the memories are wistful, and other years they are reflective. However, one thing remains constant and that is my gratitude for his influence on my life. I know we each come to this conversation with different stories, but, my prayer for each of us is that we will use our experience and memories of this precious relationship to make a positive impact on someone’s life. Happy Father’s Day to you and yours.

“A mother’s happiness is like a beacon, lighting up the future but reflected also on the past in the guise of fond memories.” Honore de Balzac
Hay House Presents Happy Mother’s Day!
Thank You Mom!
As I Look Back…
As I look back on my life
I find myself wondering…
Did I remember to thank you
for all that you have done for me?
For all of the times you were by my side
to help me celebrate my successes
and accept my defeats?
Or for teaching me the value of hard work,
good judgment, courage, and honesty?
I wonder if I’ve ever thanked you
for the simple things…
The laughter, smiles, and quiet times we’ve shared?
If I have forgotten to express my gratitude
For any of these things,
I am thanking you now…
and I am hoping that you’ve known all along,
how very much you are loved and appreciated.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! If you live in any of the top 20 nations listed on Save The Children’s Best Places In The World To Be A Mother, you’re ahead of the game. If you live in Finland, Sweden, Norway or other countries on the list, you know your children stand a greater chance of surviving childhood diseases. As much as we gather to celebrate this special day, share our love, our photos, and heartwarming stories of our moms, many moms and kids in our global community live in abysmal conditions.
In our global community, some moms go to bed hungry. Some moms give their children away or watch them die from treatable illnesses. Some moms and their children become casualties of war. Some moms, out of frustration or mental illness, become abusive to their kids. If one mom is unable to fulfill her basic dream of survival for her child, her loss is also ours.
All children deserve love… BringBackOurGirls
If you’ve been paying attention, you know that 200+ girls are missing; they were kidnapped by Boko Haram in Nigeria. They won’t have a chance to express their love to their Moms until they are found. Please get involved and also send a prayer to their families. May our Thankful prayers and gratitude for our moms, reach beyond our homes, our hearts, and our dreams to fill the desires and prayers of Moms around the world. More Below!

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Power of Threes
Weekly Photo Challenge: Three Is a Trend…
When I read this week’s challenge, the first thing that crossed my mind was the Holy Trinity and the power that is invested in that triangle. As I was thinking of what to feature, I started looking through my pictures and noticed that for New York Fashion Week, which ended on the 18th, the number three was heavily featured. Why? When I started looking into the number three, I found some fascinating data that tied in nicely with the exuberance and creativity expressed in the fashion design world.
On one numerology site, having a three vibration is described as:”A powerful need to express feelings, ideas and visions of the imagination, coupled with an extroverted personality, makes it likely that a person with 3s in key points of their Numerology chart will seek a career in art, especially the verbal arts.” If the number is tied to the creative mind, what internal triggers activate that creative impulse? Can we tap into this power if we are not a three? I’d like to know.
