14 love notes
I’m big on words…I remember things people say to me verbatim many times. I save cards and letters. I have a book of quotes where I write words that are strung together poetically with deep meaning. I really, really like words and I know the power they have. A kind word at just the right moment can literally be the difference between life and death.

Hey! Here am I!!! Did anyone miss me or notice my absence from blogging? Anyone? {cue crickets…} Well, I certainly missed writing and sharing and hopefully, I am back to a regular writing and posting routine. I did not plan on taking a break, but it’s funny how sometimes things seem to just happen at the time you need them to. 

Even though I wasn’t putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard, I was still composing in my head every day….still making mental notes on tips and strategies for living my best life! Keep reading to review my list of things learned/ remembered during my blogging break!

I came across an article online a few years back describing how a church created “blessing bags” to distribute to those in need. They filled baggies/ zip lock bags with items they thought were essential for those in their area. I loved that idea so much that I created a few “blessing bags” myself to give out as I saw fit. And because the urge to do this always strikes during this time of year, I thought I would share what my “blessing bags” look like for this year.

Y’all…I have a confession…a not so good, kind of shameful, I can’t believe this is me confession. You ready? Don’t judge me!

First, let me say that since I’ve been doing the work to improve me, I’m much more aware of how I operate when I’m not trying…like I described in this post about the default me. But as I keep working, I continue to uncover more and more…it’s deep…

Well, Happy New Year!!! I hope this holiday season was a joyous one, filled with good times with family and friends. I hope memories were made and hearts warmed with extended time to fellowship with loved ones. I hope reflection was given to the reason for the season and we entered 2014 with reverence and awe for our Creator and love for all His creations.

Hey 2014! How you doin'?

You know from my Makings of Me series that I like beginnings, so the beginning of a new year is really exciting. Seems like I get another year to do it right, do it better, and do it with love.

Of course I have a million {realistic} goals for this year…things I started last year that I want to continue with or perfect and things I’ll be starting fresh this year. Below are a few things I’m starting new this year just for 2014.
