The Invisible

WP_20140925_007Invisible things have more to them than most things we see in the world.

You can see a hug, but the important part is feeling it.
You can see a two people meet for the first time, but what is important is the exchange of energy between them.
You can see a mother with her child, but the bond of love that can only be felt between them is everything.
You can see someone win at something they have been working toward for a long time, but the realization of success in that person is something they’ll always remember.

It’s not the things in life you can see, but the things you experience, the things you feel with your heart and soul, the things in life the effect your spirit.

Take another look at the world around you …  this time though, forget what you see and take in what you feel.

Many Blessings,

Toast Wins and a Thank You

I am beyond honored to have won again this year for Best Blog and Best Visual Artist in The Toast of Music City. I had convinced myself that I may have won for blog but was certain that I didn’t win for Artist this year. I was sitting there at the awards ceremony waiting for my categories to come up and first came Best Blog, which since I had been interviewed by the Tennessean for it I was certain I had won and I did :-)  …. and then the Artist category came up and I waited to hear my name called .. 3rd place .. wasn’t me.. I thought “Oh I made it for 2nd” … 2nd place was called .. it wasn’t me.. OMG OMG OMG.. The I heard my name called out fir first place .. I almost cried I was so happy and what a wonderful surprise!

You guys encourage me and keep me creating and keep me writing. You all are the absolute Best! I love you all!

Thank you everyone.. I really could not have done it without all of you .. this win isn’t just for me.. I share it with each and everyone one of you … it was a group effort and I am truly honored that you all took the time to vote and make this happen :-)

This award will hang on my wall and every time I look at it I will think about all of you out there who participated and made this happen for me. It brings me great honor and great joy to know that so many of you took the time to cast your votes. I really don’t know what else to say but Thank You Thank You Thank You!

Many Blessings,
