In using love and being mindful, forgiving the past and loving the present.

Today I had to spend time with some family. I really wasn't looking forward to it as our past relationship has been strained at times. I also can't say I agree with some of the choices made but it's not my place to judge. I had such a sour, negative outlook this morning... and a friend gently told me to lose the negativity. I did and we had a relatively pleasant day together, as a family.

My Aidan ran around and planned with a bunch of kids he did not know. This put a smile on my face because that is him, practicing as well. He's been very aloof lately and not at all keen to participate. Sometimes it makes me worry about him and our choice to stay home. I second guess not putting him in school and having the forced social interaction. But my concerns were again proven wrong as he totally was thriving today and had a blast. ♥ It makes my heart feel good to see him being a kid and it also makes me miss my childhood at times.

Free Piercing

I'm so excited!! This afternoon I will be getting my nostril pierced for FREE! My birthday was last Sunday and this is the one thing I wanted for my birthday this year. My parent's had given me $100 for my birthday but we wound up spending it on a rug cleaner and a few other things for Sage's birthday party. I was a little bummed that I wasn't going to get it done.

So as I was browsing Facebook last night, the tattoo and piercing place I love posted that they have a new apprentice that needs bodies to practice on! Wow! Free piercings! I called immediately and actually spoke the to guy who will be doing the piercings. He's never pierced a nose before, so I was in luck! woohoo!

Of course, I will need to tip him. I really wish I had a little bit more to give, I'm sure it will be totally worth it. Pics to follow!!!! ♥

who am i?

i'm a lover. i'm a friend. i'm a mama. i'm pure joy. i'm a listener. i'm a feeler and a healer.


Let's try this again!

I've tried this many times in the past... I feel compelled to chronicle my growth, my love, and my life right now. I'm on a journey and I'm not quite sure where it's taking me just yet but I'm in it for the long haul.

I'll sign off with one of my favorite quotes.

"To the world you may be one person, to one person you may be the world" ~ anonymous

Definitely words to ponder upon. ♥
