Sunday Song

This was Rogers favorite song...When we would go out and they played he just would light up..I miss him but I know he is with me everyday..That makes me happy.
So, Dear Roger this song is for you...

Me today..

I do love this picture...I have to tell you I had way to much to drink too..
I haven't really blogged and I have been waiting for those things that make me want to write and share. I thought I would share a bit of what's going on in world and head.
I am missing my kids but I will see them soon. Some one asked me do you miss them as much this time as last time they were gone...I guess so..but ti's strange how we change every time hard things happen . How we grow from that expirience and acclimate..
I am not running right now because I don't really feel like it. I don't want to make myself do it unless I have the need because I want to love running.
I am crocheting hats for my gramma..I found the coolest shade of purple for her.
I am driving a-lot and therefor feel super grateful I have a Pruis.
I am really becoming aware of something that the universe is doing ..Its shifting in a big way.
I am more excited about the future and very hopeful.
I am loving pedicures...( i just do right now )
I am wearing jeans as much as possible.
I am letting my hair grow.
I am looking forward to 39...
I am getting wrinkles and I am a little bit kinda okay with it..
I am going to paint soon...
I do wish i could have hung out with my scarf sister but next time.....

I love this song...


My first John Mayer bumper sticker was put on my car 2002. His first album spoke to me at a time in my life were I lived far away from my family but I had 3 great kids to keep me company..I had an SUV and I loved going places. I would pack up my kids maybe twice a week and drive. We would always drive at least hour away and always had John Mayer playing ..I would take us on little adventures and watch my tiny little people explore. My kids are 7,9,16 but this song reminds me of a time in my life when I chose to have fun and enjoy my life with my little kids...

Me..

Me..

On trust..

I am hearing this word twirling in my head a-lot. Trust is something that I guess we are born with right? We trust that our parents will feed us and that they will love us. We trust that they provide a home for us. We trust that the little things will be there tomorrow.
I lost trust at a very early age. I guess I didn't really lose it as much as it was taken from me.
Many things happened that were not in my control. It changed me in many ways. This last year I lost my long time best friend she betrayed my trust . My heart forgives her but I can not forget what she did ever. I struggle with trust. I struggle with taking chances with people . I get scared and I back away. So, I am working on taking chances right because I don't want my heart to turn into a rock..I do want not believe in the power of love. So I am forcing myself to take a chances. I am choosing to trust in those I love. Trust that even if crappy things happened a really long time ago that I have the power to let go of them. I know you cant let just let go and poof its gone. Hurt comes when you least expect it and kicks you in the butt. I let it kick me I feel the yuckiness and let myself sit with it and then I say OK I know I feel this way right now and I recognize how I am feeling but now I need to move on and start letting the hurt go. Its been working for me. I am trying to move forward in this healing process, trust . I don't want to get stuck. I want to grow and it seems that with trust and love we need to take chances with our heart and that's can be scary..but there's no way around it.

Silver Strand Half Marathon.





It was a great race day morning for me. It had sweeet surprises and I was in good company, I really have been a little lame on the running front since St. George . I believe that when I run a full marathon I get tired of running for a while. I really do try to listen to my body when it tells me to stop. I stopped for about 7 weeks putting in like 28 miles in the last month. So when this half came up lets just say i really had not trained but I just wanted to do it anyway ...so I did.
My dad on the other hand hurt his foot and he was unable to finish. He will be OK he just needs to rest his foot for a while. It was a little warm but really it was a great day.

Stuff to share..


Carrie and I are doing our Bubble Gum life blog ..Go here to check it out..HERE
Its turning out really cool.
So I go to our very cool little space on the Internet. I was trying to take it in to see how it felt. It feels Pink .
We have really cool prompts to help you creatively. We have really pretty pictures. We have fun sketches.. I think its really exciting because its evolving into something magical.
One of our November prompt is Fall Hues..Carrie takes amazing pictures..and our layouts are so cool..
OK.. I am changing the subject because I have not had a chance to blog and I have stuff to share..I went to the Unearth retreat earlier this year. Changed my life. Here is what I wrote about it back then. (earlier post) The woman who puts these amazing event together just opened registration for two more..Go here the unearth website ..I am going to do everything in my power to attend either one..
This amazing female named Liz Lamoreux wrote a book..I got it in the mail in these beautiful bag and it was definitely shipped with love. Its called Inner Excavation...explore Your Self Through Photography, Poetry, and Mixed media..To me reading that title is like warm caramel on vanilla bean ice cream...Really , how amazing does that sound. Then I opened it...( bells went off peeps !!!! ) It's so perfect for us. Thank You Liz .. If this was in the book Olympics and I was the judge I would have a big 10 sign over my head. I am so excited to see how this will help me grow as a person. I took this picture at work..(shh...) I am in book love..

Reality Check

Hello..I wanted to check in and have you know a glorious reality moment..
This is me and my three kids..
I sometimes feel like I am fully settled in the whole single mom thing. Other times I not so much. I can honestly say that Art is my healing solution at this moment in time. I have not run since the St. George Marathon. So its not running..I was looking through my Kelly-Rea journal and realized I had written this quote about 20 times or so .
When we allow ourselves to be happy or sad we are cooperating with the spiritual law.
Lets just say Gloria is in major cooperation mode. That being said today was overwhelming maybe it was my hormones because I have those or maybe I am a scared. Being afraid is OK too. Its all OK . Being human is such a beautiful thing to be able to feel and to love and to be sad to be happy its all beautiful..So here I am just like you trying my hardest to do well ,to understand ,to love and not to hate..so I am sending my love to my all of you and saying keep moving forward don't give up and don't stop dreaming...
