If only someone would play happy music all the time to help us grow, right?

Okay

A reminder that I don’t have to do it ALL, right?  I am not a super wife, Mom, or co-worker, although I would like to think that I am.

I am exhausted from doing way too much…slowing down at least for today.  I am enough.

Happy Tuesday.

Five

From my Passion Planner last week.  I have been praying – meditating on this all week.

When the kids were little, our concentration on friends were those with children of similar ages and interests.  As adults, those interests have changed.   My work has changed…David’s work has changed.  He has the time to be more involved with the local community theater.  We have met some incredible people along this path.  I am so very grateful for the exposure to so many cultures and groups.

I miss my Christian involvement, and have guilt about not being involved with church.  However, I feel as though I no longer belong there.  Again, it is about growth and change, and it isn’t all bad.

I like the people I/we that are surround us.  I love my besties, and miss them terribly when we can’t spend time together.  I love our friend groups, and they are most definitely a diverse group of people.

Need to remember that I should be a good person to be around, to encourage others to be better or bring them some amount of joy.  I also need to remind myself that it is okay to let some of them go, especially when they bring me down.

Thoughts?

Blessings.

Princess

It was such an honor to be a part of this event on Friday evening.  David was the announcer for the strong, amazing princesses (and Queen). I love these women.

These were his introductions:

Good evening! To Your Most Royal Highnesses, and your steadfast and devoted Escorts, I offer a warm and heartfelt welcome! It is my great privilege this evening to introduce your honored visitors. A gathering of Princesses from across the worlds of magic and imagination.

Kind, elegant, shy and sophisticated, as well as a hopeless romantic, this princess was named by her parents after the goddess of the dawn, because she filled their life with sunshine. Put into a cursed sleep by the evil Maleficient, she was awakened by “true love’s kiss”. I am delighted to introduce the Sleeping Beauty herself, Princess Aurora.

Recently freed from the tower of evil Mother Gothel, this Princess is spirited, clever, kind, and very adventurous, with an amazing hairdo and a mean iron skillet. The true princess of the Kingdom of Corona, I am honored to present Princess Rapunzel.

Our next princess hails from the far kingdom of Agrabah. This daughter of a sultan is caring, strong, independent, and unafraid to speak her mind no matter what. Your Highnesses, I speak, of course, of Princess Jasmine.

img_2017Afraid that her power to create ice and snow could hurt the people she loved, she hid herself away, until she was rescued by her loving sister. Born a princess, but now the true Queen of Arendelle, please join me in welcoming Queen Elsa.

Born on the island village of Motunui, this daughter of Chief Tui inherited a love for the seas and voyaging. Loyal, strong-willed, and practically fearless, she is a true friend to her allies and the ocean. It is my privilege to present Princess Moana.

Raised as a scullery maid in service to her evil step-mother and step-sisters, our next Princess found her true love with the help of her Fairy Godmother… and an abandoned glass slipper. Your Highnesses, please join me in welcoming Princess Cinderella.

This next princess is near and dear to me. The loving, if headstrong and mischievous, daughter of mighty King Triton, she left her underwater kingdom to explore her love of humankind. Brave, curious, and blessed with a beautiful voice, I am particularly proud to present to you Princess Ariel.

I love this man.

I love where I work and what I am able to participate in.

The people that work this hard for so many–who make it seem effortless. I am truly in awe of their spirit.

Blessings.

Trying

Thanks to LA (Waking Up on the Wrong Side of 50). She pointed out that I am so much better than I was four years ago.

Next time, or tomorrow is always an option. Giving up just because you fail today doesn’t mean that tomorrow you will fail again.

Blessings.
