Those Who Inspire Us To Greatness

Nothing serves as better motivation than seeing others you admire doing great things. I was blessed to grow up in a home with a Mother and Father who both did great things on a regular basis. My Mother had ten children and was a devoted full-time Mom who had one of the hardest jobs in […]

This Ain’t My First Rodeo

Tonight definitely wasn’t my first rodeo, but it was my grandbaby’s first rodeo and it was so much fun to be able to watch him as he watched his first rodeo. He was totally smitten watching all the cowboys ride their horses and the bulls. I personally love rodeos. I’ve been going to them for […]

Treasure Every Precious Moment

Today was the baby blessing of my grandson Flynn Dalton Anderson. When I saw him in his little white outfit I was amazed at how much he looked exactly like his father, my son Dalton. I remember my son Dalton’s blessing day as if it was just yesterday. I remember getting him into his cute […]

Brain Fry, Headaches, and Exhausted Guardian Angels

“I have a theory about the human mind. A brain is a lot like a computer. It will only take so many facts, and then it will go on overload and blow up.”  – Erma Bombeck Do you ever come to the end of an exceptionally long day and feel like your head is going […]

“Never Say Anything About Yourself That You Don’t Want To Come True” (Forbes Article)

I still remember as a child seeing my mother standing in the kitchen talking to herself. No joke. She would literally have entire conversations with herself. At the time I just assumed my Mom must be a little bit crazy, after all the woman had ten children so by rights she was entitled to be […]
