Sunday

Traveling to NW Arkansas for a memorial service, and it has been thirteen years since Carmen was here.

This was a wonderful moment in our travels yesterday. Twelve hours in a car, to attend a service for essentially my little brother has been difficult to say the least.

He would be turning 50 the 24th of this month. Far to young to be gone. Tony was fun, engaging, strong minded, mean, and loving. I will miss him something fierce.

We were out of touch for about fifteen years, but have been talking every couple of weeks recently.

Life is short. I am grateful I knew him and that he was a part of my life.

See you on the other side cowboy. I love you.

Blessings.

Gangster

Kindness is So Gangster!I went to visit Carmen in Tallahassee this weekend. We had a great time putting together finishing touches on her apartment, shopped and had some great food.

We had brunch/lunch at Jeri’s Midtown Cafe before I headed back home on Sunday. The service was impeccable, and the food was fresh and flavorful.  Their servers wore these shirts stating kindness statements, but this one really spoke to me.

Kindness is So Gangster!  Embracing this…as I have begun to love this phrase.

Happy Monday!  Go Gangster!!

Blessings.

Sunday Thoughts

I have some friends that are going through times of uncertainty. I say that it will get better as it did for me but they are still unsure.

God takes us through something, I believe, to help those that go through it later. He brings you into their lives to show that His grace is enough.

Circumstances might be different, but the pain and healing are the same.

Looking back on my life, I never thought that I would be one to encourage others.

I am feeling blessed with my past (as difficult as it has been), because of who He has placed in my path. It is my choice if I assist, encourage or help. He places those that might need me to help…I feel anyway.

Blessings.
