Sharing the LOVE

Although I haven't written a blog in what seems like AGES because I was wrapped up in graduating, I thought my birthday would be the best time to restart! I have been thinking a lot of where I am at, and where I was even a few years ago and it amazes me how fabulous life is. To think how much my business has grown in only a few years...... now I own a spa in the best central area for Jacksonville, Florida, I have a group of fabulous women that work for me and share my drive and inspiration and to think I wasn't sure if i wanted to branch out on my own.... ONLY a few years ago! This and so many other aspects of my life have me feeling so thankful this holiday season. For instance my husband! I posted a video yesterday on my facebook (click here to see said video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-yLGIH7W9Y) and it cracks me up b/c that is me with Skip! He is such a HUGE part of my life and keeps my head screwed on!!! He is the support system that I need in my life on top of being the amazing hubby (and excellent cook lol)! He is what kept me going when times were tough and I wanted to give up. Someone else like that is my sister! My sister to me means more than she will ever know. Fun fact about us is that we were born on the same day.... 9 years apart! Crazy huh? My mom and dad had excellent planning on having cool December babies! She is my spiritual partner, the person I have since little been able to open up and sing praises to Jesus.... and although I do that with Skip as well, Marian and I have a special sisterly bond about it. we are actually celebrating our joint birthday tonight and going to an amazing service called sub 30 (for people under 30). That's what I love about her! She wants to share our birthday singing and praising Jesus.... but still being giggly goofy girls like we always are there! My parents really raised us so well and I hope to be the parents they were one day. Marian and I have learned so much from them. My dad has been such a hard worker all his life and I try every day to imitate that, while my mom was always there to pick us up from school and was with us every second of the day taking care of us. Married 35 years..... yeah that's definitely what inspires me! I guess what I am trying to say is I have so many amazing people in my life and so many blessings around me, that this birthday/Christmas I find myself wanting........ nothing. I am so content with everything that I actually can't think of one thing that I want! I was so down in the dumps just a few years ago when it seemed that my life was nowhere where I wanted it to be..... and life amazes me how if you keep going you realize nothing is forever. I see so many kids now a days break my heart when I see they committed suicide over something that was said at school. It breaks my heart b/c we ALL go through hard times.... even the bullies! Actually MORE SO the bullies... that's the reason why they are being hateful! They are so unhappy with themselves, but if you keep driving the journey of life you will wake up one day and think... "how lucky am I to be here on earth, with Jesus smiling down on me, amazing friends and family, amazing LIFE!" I want to keep reminding people that crappy times are NOT forever! I am hoping to fill this season with random acts of kindness to others. I really hope you will join me! The littlest thing can make someone smile..... and to someone in pain, a smile may be worth more than you know. Even if ONE person reads this and makes a random act of kindness it will make me the happiest girl in the world!!!!!!!!! Please share the LOVE!!!! PEACE, LOVE, & SPARKLES!!!!!!!! xoxoxoxoxo
