Tell me a highlight of your year? One of mine? Netting out 2014 w/a smile!!!!

2014 didn’t start the way I “planned”! And the year? …Let’s just say, what could have held me down and turned me inside-out, God used for good! … I’m stronger and more grateful than ever!

January 2014 began with (7) painful road blocks, disappointments and obstacles personally/professionally which compounded until I hit RESET (end of Jan) and refocused on my vision board which I had created before the storm.

Hit RESET often & keep your eye on the prize.


…Those were followed up by unexpectedly losing my Uncle Gus, then a call to be “transparent/vulnerable” to give the speech, “Challenge the Lies, Champion the Truth: Move from Fear to Freedom!”

Rally your troops to stand in the gap w/you when you’re feeling scared. Prayer is a most powerful thing and brought peace!


…That was followed by months of more painful, deep tissue growth spurts (The TEST of the speech so-to-speak)…

How do you eat an elephant? One small bite at a time. Take baby steps and allow time for digestion!


…I believe all this was preparing me in part, for bein’ available to say YES to the gift of having my nephew D, live w us for (only) 2 months!…The path of acceptance for all that encompassed his departure still requires much learning of me (desired: presence, education, discernment).

Out of site doesn’t really mean out of mind, nor out of “responsibility”.

As 2014 comes to a close and as a friend and I were just sharing thoughts over the unexpected loss of our good friend, Dyko….we acknowledged our gratitude for our anchored relationship w God, for it is in that we are (I am) able to ride out the inevitable pains, gains and losses not only in 2014, but in life.

Consider relationships and celebrate today what you think can be put off until tomorrow. Tomorrow is not promised to any of us…..


…Blessed by your friendship- I think of you, your families, posts, convos, and “happenings” often! Thanks for sharing life w me -and here’s to our best year ever… Ready or not, here we come 2015!!!!
