Hi, my name is Louise...I truly look forward to surprises in my mailbox. Here is a small part of what I like about my beautiful moments on this earth. The beginning of believing in renewal again is when my violets pop up through the cold soil in November-December. From then on every day is one of my most treasured times in my life because they are in bloom in my blessing garden. When I can step off my porch, and am greeted with the sweet spring like fragrance and the beautiful blue lavender silken petals, then I know my next step, I bend down to say hello and pick a few to share with a friend. The feeling later that I have given a precious part of my life to another, well it makes the rest of my day seem like heaven bound. In choosing gifts, flowers so often are a part of the gift, whether real or silk or even painted on the card. . 2014 is my Celebration year, for I have been on a very long journey of learning about life and JOY. I am a single/widowed mother of a young man of 27 whose been my rock, along with Jesus and my incredible friends. I am taking greater time to now uphold my health and remembering how my creator would want the best for me. So once in awhile a day of rest is the number 1 choice.
I was raised with music in my home, piano, record player, radio , and grandmother humming. I love 50's music, gospel, ballads, and inspirational songs. Oh yes Christmas carols, they will ring my bells any day of the year.
In the winter, my televison is like a friend. So I want laughter and humor, I love Lucy especially!!! Love watching The Voice and rooting for a winner. Oh but of course BONES is my evening with my favorite chocolate DOVE Bar.
One of my dearest friends,and I, have been scrapbooking together for many years. Everything scrapbooking we just had to have.So this year buying a large upright closet with shelves and doors to put all of my scrapbooks and supplies and projects into,well it was a must. Otherwise I would have had to rent a storage room for every thing. I am working on my church History Album of 125 year photos through history. Love the passion I feel to get it done. So my friends anything Church or Faith based in stickers and embellishments.....
So swap wise love heritage embellishments and family stickers and anything musical.
Classics like An Affair to Remember get a box of kleenex and some chocolate-always chocolate!
Chick Flicks Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail, When Harry Met Sally.......many many more.
And lots more chocolate!!!!!
When I feel the most passionate, doing My Family History and Genealogy. Right now I am writing work for my Grandparents story that will be for a book. My son needs to know about his family before I leave this world. I believe you can't know where your going until you know where you've been and the family before you. Would be happy to encourage anyone to reconnect with their past families. It has been beautiful so far.
My Son always comes first, and then Friends, well they ARE my Family. Then I love color, especially Teal Sage Cranberry, Sea Green, Blues...and love the Rose color. Cards with beautiful affirmations or positive encouragements, and poetry, love poetry and writing it, which surprises me, and I am in a poetry group and have entered some in our county fair. I still have a poem book from grade school days.
I prefer not to receive negative or symbolic messages about darkness.
I have been on a journey with depression and I am so looking forward to surprise's in my mailbox. Shopping for a beautiful card or thinking of special things I can bless another with will be my inspiration. Thank you for wanting to bless my life too.
what I am inspired by...... Those who have walked a rugged path and come out smiling with love in their hearts and peace in their soul. Those that never ask for help and all help is holding them up. Those who know our world is better than I do and then I see. Those who are my mirror image as I walk, so do they. OH and being on the BEACH is like walking with Jesus, LOVE THE WALK and the BEACH.
