Inspired Life Lesson # I stopped Counting...take a breather

~*::{Our Darling Sophie, snuggled up and undercover}::*~
It's been a while since my last Inspired Life Lesson installment...things have been so crazy around here this summer. But, when I saw Sophie snuggled up under the covers, her head barely sticking out, I just had to do a post about it!
Sometimes our little animal friends are more in tune to what is going on around us than we give them credit for. We sometimes forget that they are naturally intuitive creatures that sense things and changes, just as we do. The only real difference is that they pay attention to their instincts without question or reason, while we humans make up every preconceived notion as to why we shouldn't trust ourselves or the messages that we get.
So, here's the lesson from Sophie...take a breather. Snuggle up under the covers and grab a great book and a cup of tea. Or better yet, meditate and see what comes to you in your stillness. You never know what neat things you may find.

How Sweet It Is

Yesterday, I found out that a pair of my Earrings...Darling, I give you my heart...were featured on one of my super favorite blogs, Lillyella! Stop by and see her great pictures and featured sellers everyday. I'm so jazzed because I never thought that I would get on there. How sweet it is!

Plus, check out the yummy cookies...they look sooooooooo delish!

Thanks for including me Nicole :)

Inspire Me Mondays...Me and My Fortune

This is my fortune...
This is me (with out makeup)with crazy dizzy spells today...(what the fudge!!!)

My Opportunity...from shopping at the gem show

More opportunity
I am very fortunate in what has been presented to me. For the first time, I am not squandering it. Instead, I am tapping into my instinct and intuition...I am using all that God has given me to make this place more beautiful, one sparkly bauble at a time.
So, maybe for the first time, I am inspired by me. By my makeup less face and the wrinkles starting to form around my eyes. By my desire to do good. By my drive to be provide for myself and then some. By my gifts and dreams of insight and prophecy. By how I can love so deeply. By my creativity and smarts.
Good Fortune: You will be fortunate in the opportunities presented to you.
Indeed, I already am.
p.s. I think I'll play those numbers, they just might be lucky ;~)

Inspired Life Lesson #10/Inspire Me Mondays...Closure

~*::{Mary, our Protectress and Angel of New Beginnings}::*~

This week I am combining two of my usual posts into one. You see, this is a week for closure. A time to pay our respects to a beloved person that has passed on to another place filled with light and love. It is also a time where signs and symbols of our old lives have ceased to exist for us...a time where you realize that all that you were in the past no longer has a hold on your future.

I have held on the struggle of other's expectations for myself for all of my life. I have burdened my soul with notions that I must shield and protect myslef by burrowing in and creating barriers to keep me safe and warm. This past week, I believe that I have started to have closure on the death of a person that others have wanted me to be, and not the one that I have become.

Have you ever had someone look right through you, as if you didn't exist? The feeling is quite unnerving, especially if the person was once thought to be the "love of your life". ( I have since come to know the truest of love from another, my awesome husband, Keith. I am also grateful for seeing his true worth and the depth of his soul...but that is another whole post) Funny though, I belive that this was all quite timed and perfect, because for the first time, it did not matter that I was invisible. I had achieved closure. For this, I am greatful. For he was the part of my past that was riddled with destruction and foolishness. With acting out all the pain and fear that I held so deeply inside..for way too long.

So, for this week I applaud closure and all of the wonderful things that it affords us. I say hooray to the ending of relationships and phases in our lives, for with the end of one thing, there is an opportunity to begin something brand new. This year is all about that for me... I am grateful and Inspired.

Inspire Me Mondays...the weight of water

~*::{From my garden}::*~
The flowers are falling
heavy from
God's tears
encumbered by the
weight of water
they are no longer
held up
by resisitance
their stalks bent
their faces turned
as if in deep
I suppose
it is fitting
that the flowers
are a reflection
of a heavy heart
kneeling on the
soggy ground
waiting for the sun
to come and dry
its tears
I am held up
by the weight
of water
for after the floods
come rebirth
and renewal
new sprouts of grass
stand up with vigor
flowers turn their faces
to the sun
able to breathe
once again

Inspired Life Lesson #8...Believe in Angels

I have no doubt in my mind

that Angels exist

that they carry you

in your darkest moments

wipe your tears when you cry

tickle your sides to make you laugh

and hold your hand

when the deepest of sorrows

fill your heart

I have been talking to my Angels

praying for a miracle

asking for temperance and compassion

for my Mother in Law

so that she can begin her next journey

in peace

On Tuesday afternoon

the Angles took up their charge

and led a weary heart home

so that life could begin anew

and sufferening would not commence

on a heart that was full of love

May the Angels lead you home

to comfort and warmth

with love and light surrounding your heart

We love you and miss you

The Heart of a Fake Rose

~*::{The Heart of a Fake Rose}::*~

I sat there
knowing that I
could have
should have
been the one
up on stage

Funny how life
the symphony
the cacophony
of our concert
our heart wrenching
our soul stirring
that is slightly
off key

I am faced
by my flat notes
my opportunities
all for the love of
that has made me feel
and sad
that I have not
taken all
that had been
set before me

I have left my meal
half eaten
yet my soul
still hungers
my wine is spilled
on the tablecloth
stains of lust
and denial
and I am

How has this
become my
From where
do I lay
my next step
that leads me

Inspire Me Mondays...the water and the wind


I took a walk

by the water

to ease my

scattered soul

I desperately


to feel the heavy

water laden breeze

against my skin

a cleansing mist

to remove the


that is stirring inside

Along my walk

there were crayfish claws

scattered about

in random places

it's carcas found later

down the path

How fitting

for I too felt

pulled from every direction

my limbs overextended

my will scattered and torn

my desire, belly up

Today, I am right side up

ready to face the day

a little more connected

on the outside

slightly more settled

on the inside

thanks to the water

and the wind

that has restored

my desire

to keep walking down the path

Inspired Life Lesson #8...Intention

~*::{Flowers for me, from a friend}::*~

I have never had much patience
everyone tells me so
I am always in overdrive
a flood of information
at the drop of a hat

this scares some people

I suppose my intensity
has never been channeled
into a proper
I do know
that if I set my mind to something
if I truly desire it
it will be mine

the power of intention is amazing

I was told yesterday that this year
from birthday to birthday
is made up of three principles
for me
all three working
in synergy

a spiral of force surrounding love

I was also told that
I need to take a breath
and not peek at the souffle
in the oven
for it won't rise
if it isn't allowed to work
in the right time

I send forth my intention
for myself and my conspirators
that we three gain the courage
to be exactly what we need to be
at the right time for us
and to not fear
those who don't believe in our possibility
especially ourselves
seeing with clear vision
what we are about to become
