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 hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Six Years in Heaven - In Memory of Barbara Lay

You've been in heaven 6 years today.  You are missed is an understatement.  No one had a smile like you.  No one had eyes that sparkled more.  No one cared more about people than you did.  Your legacy lives on and today we remember how you showed God's love to everyone you met.  For those who knew my beautiful Mother, please show compassion to someone today.  Share the love of Jesus with someone in need.  Speak sweet words to someone hurting.  And take extra time to appreciate the life God has given you on earth.

Today I put together bags of food for the homeless.  It's nothing extravagant.  Just some simple items into a Ziploc bag.  I wanted to do something in memory of Mom.  I normally see 1-2 homeless people every time I go grocery shopping.  Passing out these bags will remind me each time that God cares for them as much as He cares for me.  And even though Mom isn't here physically helping me pass out these bags, she's with me in spirit and I know this would make her smile.
