never live faster than your guardian angels can fly

"circle of love"
(earrings made to match "look up")
As I prepare for the class I'll be teaching this weekend, I am reminded of my many blessings. I type out these words, and still have to pinch myself. How did I get here? Teaching? It is said a journey begins with a single step. That is exactly how it begins.
It is just having the courage to take that step.
My one step began almost two years ago. Somewhat before that I do believe,
but not .....really.

If you have a dream. Go for it. I tell you this from experience.
There is never a better time to start than now. Today is now.
I do not have a sugar coated life.
I do have a good life.
I know at any moment that can change.

Thank you for allowing me to be here with you.
More than that....
Thank your for allowing me to be me.
One more quote (in addition to this blog post title) taken from my beautiful 2010 Heart of the Home calendar by Susan Branch.
God respects me when I work,
But He loves me when I sing~
