Creating Memorable Moments


Animated Word Family

I’ve discovered that I don’t remember a lot of events that have occurred over the course of my life as much as I remember moments. It’s those significant ‘moments’ that seem to be memorable.

Sometimes those ‘moments’ were sad ones and sometimes they were good ones. Whatever they were, I remember them the most.

We live in a world that is overloaded with technology and gadgets. I own a few gadgets of my own, but I limit the amount of time I spend with them.

Children and young people today, have their heads buried in a tablet, phone or a gadget of some sort. Are they spending enough time with the things that are valuable and important? Is anyone teaching them about the importance of verbal communication at the dinner table?

It’s a different world today than it was 30 years ago. I’m open to change. Change is good, but some changes that have entered our world may have robbed us of some important things.

I believe in creating memorable moments, especially with children and young people.

Recently, my family sat around the dinning room table to celebrate my grand-daughter’s birthday. I wanted her to remember that period of time that she had spent with us. After dinner, we put cupcakes out on the table with ice-cream. We lit each cupcake and sang, ‘Happy Birthday’. We also took pictures.

It’s important for children to have positive and happy memorable moments in their lives. I realize that technology ┬áis here to stay, but things like playing board games and reading stories to our children should never cease to be a part of their lives.

Our Sunday dinners, as a family, are filled with memorable moments! That’s the stuff that draws us closer together and it’s where the love is felt the most.

That Time of Year


Fall Season2015 is quickly coming to an end and I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is 5 weeks away! At the end of each year, I try to reflect over the past months and take inventory.

It’s important to take inventory of our lives. We should also set realistic goals that will enable us to achieve what is necessary and vital for happiness and productivity.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t stand still for too long. I have to be moving and growing and trying new things. That’s how I spell ‘Growth’.

I am in the process of finishing my fourth book as well as creating works of art that will hit the market place.

2015 has been a year wrought with challenges of all kinds. Life wouldn’t be ‘Life’ without these divine interruptions. By the time Thanksgiving comes around, I will have a host of things that I am grateful and thankful for!

Overall, its been a good year so far, at least for me. I’ve seen a lot and I’ve learned a lot. That is something no one can take away from me! I took creativity to a completely different level, while challenging myself at the same time.

I took the ‘Hard Things’ that life and God handed me and rolled with it, knowing that it was all going to work for my good!

It feels good to grow and to expand in areas of the heart and mind.

That’s what makes life worth living!
