It’s raining outside here…

I just love this sound…and I can hear the ocean in the distance…

How will you shake it up today?

Zen Moment of the Day

The cold is coming this next week here in Michigan. I don’t mind it actually. I love cozying up to a fire with a warm blanket and just relaxing…

Looks like the pup won this battle:

Just keep on keepin on

Just keep on keeping on

Nothing like snuggling up to a donkey

Say what? Yep. Check out the video below. Mind. Blown.

Iris Grace inspires with her art:

For those that know me personally, you know that I love to paint.  It provides me an opportunity to get in touch with the core of my being and just enjoy the moment that I am experiencing. So, when I see this story on CNN about a beautiful little girl and her artwork, I melt instantly.

Meet the lovely Iris Grace. She has been diagnosed with Autism and has not spoken yet. However, her parents found a way to help her by incorporating art therapy into her life. Now little Iris Grace communicates through her art. She is quite incredible and her artwork is beautiful. She is inspiring to me in so many ways and quite honestly, when I watch the video that is provided, I just can’t help but feel that God is there with her in every moment. The things that make me smile in life. If we could only all be so open to seeing life through the eyes of a child…

Never give up!;) All I can say is I’m wrapped up in school, and we finally moved into our new home this past week. So…you can imagine!
