About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

What Kind of Flower are You During this Journey of Life?

This is what our flower bed looked like 3 months ago.
 
 
3 months later and gallons of rain water and our flower bed is left to 4 plants.
 All the hard work and money we put into the flower bed didn't last long due to the enormous amounts of rain we've had in the last couple of months.  

This can be a great picture of our own lives.  We can either be that one strong plant that has a firm faith and nothing can wash it away or are we just like all the other flowers that couldn't handle the stress of life and just wilted and died when "life" was thrown at them.  Is there something in our life that is affecting our ability to thrive?  Do we have the relationship with God that we can remain strong and positive when we go through this journey of life and whatever it may throw at us?  It's easy for our lives to become clogged with too much negativity, gossip, criticism, laziness, pride, control, and so much more.  When's the last time you decided to be honest, compliment someone sincerely, help a neighbor, pray for your enemy, showed love to the not so popular person, or showed humility?  Every decision and choice we make affects us or someone else.  As we go through this journey of life, what type of influence are you having on people around you?  Are you known as someone who is shallow and consumed with drama or are you the person who remains strong and positive no matter what life brings them?
