I have always admired anyone that had an extraordinary talent. It is such a beautiful and wondrous thing to see when a little  girl or boy start singing and such power comes out of their mouth. They do it so naturally but depending on how and what they are singing it can bring tears to your eyes because they can touch you to your soul. Singing is just one example and I used that one because I wouldn’t mind having that gift myself. I have pondered for my 57 years on what gift I have.

They say we all have one and that we shouldn’t waste it. It gets kind of hard when it doesn’t just jump out at you. If you know what I mean. I love to dance but that boat has sailed. Don’t get me wrong because any opportunity that I can get to dance I do. I just won’t be on any of those dance shows that they have on TV. I can only draw sticks so that will not work either. I have dabbled with Coreldraw and paint now that is a work out in itself but I am getting better and better. Here are a couple of art creations that I put together. I have proudly framed one of them and the other I had it enlarged and it is hanging in our living room! I am pretty proud. It may not be much to others but that I did it myself really made me feel good.

Abstract is what I love!

My art!

The thing is I haven’t given up and I am continuously trying to improve myself. I believe that if you have been graced with something great use it and share it with the world. What talents do you have and are you using what the good lord blessed you with? Give me some feedback.  I would like to see what talented people we have out there. Everyone have a wonderful and blessed day!

Quote for today:“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything you gave me. Erma Bombeck quotes (U.S. humorist, 19271996)

I am the luckiest woman in the world. Well at least in my own little world! I am married to my best friend and I figure it can’t get any better than that. I have known my husband Harry for at least 41 years! I will not say it was love at first sight but it didn’t take long. We have been together and broke up at least four times mainly because we were young and immature. We both say now that if we had got married when we were younger it wouldn’t have worked out. Both of us had a lot of growing up and learning to do. I guess you can say we were destined to be together. Harry and I had earlier relationships but we would always keep in touch. We would each talk about our relationships to one another.

I remember this one time when Harry told me that he had enlisted in the Marines mind you at this particular time we were dating. Well he then went on to say that because he was enlisting he thought it only fair that we should break up. My then future husband (even though he didn’t know he was) said it was better for me because he didn’t want me to feel I was obligated to wait for him. I will say I was a little hurt but I got over it, considering that I really didn’t have a choice. My thought  was and I quote “fine when and if we get back together he will have to make the first move”. The cat and mouse game continued! I can honestly say that I didn’t know I was in the cat and mouse game. I was dating when he came home and the relationship I was in was pretty much a goner. It was pretty interesting because when he came over the other guy knew automatically that my future husband again (even though he didn’t know he was) still had feelings for me. He actually told me that and I told him he was crazy. Mind you this is one of the reasons that I needed to get away from the relationship because he was very insecure! Well I guess this time he had his man radar up and it was really working. Eventually we broke up and this was way before my future husband…. you know the rest right?

We finally got married in 1989. It was the best thing that I have done in my life. It is such a wonderful feeling to give 100% in a marriage or relationship and get 100% back. I know that no matter what happens he will always be there for me through thick and thin. We have definitely had situations in our 22 years of marriage that have been tested. We both know that laughing together, communication, trust, respect, honesty, and always and I mean always having each others best interest at heart will keep us going for another 22 years and more! This is of course the short version maybe someday soon I will get around to giving you all the long version. All of our friends keep telling us that we should really write our love story. Maybe someday we will.

Quote for the day:
” I hope that what motivates you in all your endeavors would be for God’s greater glory. Money, power, and our dreams indeed are instrumental driving forces for us to strive to be the best we can be. Take time to relax as the psalms say, God has showered us with blessing that we rightfully deserve. What’s the use of having so much if you’re so stressed that you have can’t use the money you earn to cure yourself when you’re sick? Stay happy and positive and relax your spirit. Blessed be.  by” James Padilla
