Light… glorious light ….


‘Along your ride called β€œLife”, you may encounter rough storms. The dark clouds and unrelenting winds may bring feelings of sadness, grief, depression, anxiety or maybe even anger or resentment. Keep Riding. Just ahead, the clouds will disappear, the winds will blow over and you will find your peace. It is now that you become the bright light for others going through their storm. If you can, help them through it.’

I woke quite early this morning. Somewhere around 3 am. A remix of worry, excitement over a few web projects I am working on and a desire to finish up some tweaking) and middleagedum. Yes I realize that is not really a word. πŸ™‚ Add the fact, that computer time is catch-as-catch -can with my husband and I both home and sharing our one and only computer.

SO I stumbled out of bed and made coffee. The first thing I do is check my emails and I was astounded by the number of visitors to my site already. As soon as the fog lifted I went looking for the ‘culprit . And I was amazed AGAIN.

Thank you for reblogging my post Opinionated Man! πŸ˜€

I felt a special mention was in order, because his gesture was a perfect example of how even the simple act of sharing ( reblogging in this case ) can make a HUGE difference for someone as it has for me today. I can’t tell you what it means.

OM hosts Harsh Reality on Word Press. I have been following his blog since the beginning of the year. I like his blog because he is brutally honest in his posts. He speaks his mind on all kinds of topics and IS quite frankly a genius in his strategies as a blogger. Enough said!

He doesn’t need my plug here. Honestly. And I don’t wish to cause him any grief in doing so but his gesture made my page views skyrocket today to a BEST ever number and in doing so, opened up dialogue and so forth with other bloggers . For that alone, I am SOOOO VERY grateful!


Thank you again O. M. And thanks to many followers who followed his reblog ( reblogged themselves ) and liked ( and left thoughtful comments )

I will be visiting each of your blogs as well in the next day or two. Thank you for your patience as it will take a little while to work my way through my inbox. Smiles. AGAIN. WOW!

That being said, for those who would like to visit Opinionated Man at the Harsh Reality blog, by all means, please do so! All I ask is that you begin with this post which represent his thoughts on the reblogging issue!

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a GREAT day.

You ALL have been so amazing and I wish blessings on each and every one of you.


Everything is Going to be Alright. :)


Some days are better than others no doubt but this evening I hold tight to this truth. I heard from TJ, who seemed very lucid and taking care of business. At least he is going through the motions which is cathartic in itself.

With my stepson gone back north , TJ is back in Broward and staying with family friends. They are planning a candlelight memorial for Sarra on Friday evening. I’d like to be there. Whether I go or not is up in the air.

Here on the homefront, all is quiet. Again, I can’t help but appreciate the respite. Or the lessons God is teaching me in this process.

I truly believe, everything is going to be alright. Maybe not today, but eventually!
