Always In My Heart

My Angel Mommy, December 17-2006.

I miss you.

Always and forever

Your little girl,


It doesn’t matter how many years go by,

you are always in my heart and my thoughts.

Many days go by and I wish you were here.

If only I could pick up the phone and hear your voice.

For now, I am blessed that I feel you near.

I love you so much.

I miss you Momma.

Do You Believe?

Do you believe in Santa Claus?

I picked up my grand son from school and asked him if he believed in Santa Claus?

With a big smile he nodded his head up and down.

I said, “Gamma does too”

A.J. smiled big after I told him I believe in the magic of Christmas.


Life really is filled with happy surprises.



Never lose Faith.  You have so much to give.


Someone gives thanks for YOU~

Reboot Your Energy

Reboot your energy with a candy cane!


Awe.  I think most of us need our energy rebooted at this time of the year.

So many holiday to-dos to get through.

Has your pep petered out?

The sharp aroma of a peppermint candy cane  is such an excellent mental and physical stimulant, you’ll feel revived up and ready to go right away!

I must try this on my next busy, busy day.

Why it works:


Peppermint oil contains natural compounds that arouse areas of the brain responsible for alertness, brain scan studies show.

Plus, the scent opens your airways, so you breathe in more energizing oxygen!

All sounds like good stuff to me. How about you? What do you think?

Not a peppermint fan?

Drink ice water!

Drinking ice water is proven to trigger the release of brain-stimulating adrenaline, helping your heart pump stronger, which boosts blood flow to your brain!

Water is something I love and drink tons of water every single day.

Yes! Yes! Drink your water too. It is so good for us.

Remember to take time out for yourself.

I did just that this early morning when I did a 4 mile Run.

Feel good endorphins help me to relax more and not stress over things that don’t matter.

I hope your week is relaxing and all good things come your way.




A Little Bit More

Christmas doesn’t come from a store, maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more~ Dr. Seuss


This photo was taken by our son while he was truck driving.  Thank-you my Son and safe travels. May God keep you safe always. I love you.


It’s Christmas time.

We celebrate it in our own way.

My Hubby and I find the stores commercialize Christmas way too much.

I like to keep Christmas fun and more relaxing.

When asked what I wanted for Christmas I said, “I am so blessed already”.

I have a grateful heart.

My wish for you is that you are healthy, happy and find something that warms your heart.



Refuse to let heavy traffic and long lines dampen your Christmas spirit.

Being at the GYM this morning helps me throughout my days of the hustle and bustle of the season.


Keep It Up

As hectic as the holidays are, try to keep up with your regular fitness routine.

I know I feel tons better when I keep my regular fitness routine.

My week was started at the GYM first thing this morning.

Exercise is a great stress reliever.

The hustle and bustle of Christmas can bring on loads of stress.

Please remember to take time out just for you.

Have a great week.




Let’s Go

Another beautiful photo from my niece. Thank-you so much Miranda. This photo is taken in the East Kootenay, British Columbia, Canada. They get much more snow than we do. We experience more rainy days. Now, which would you prefer? hahaha  We always say we don’t have to shovel it.

Then again, I like to see some snow Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

That is pretty much it for me.

Are you snowed in?

Be Happy. It’s one way of being wise. ~Colette


I hope you had a happy and healthy weekend.

My Hubby and I enjoyed an early morning walk together.

Although it was chilly it was a pleasure to have the sun shining down on us.
