Nice post know just how this feels always give 100% to people and get hurt not by everyone thank God ❤️
I hate being hurt by others. No matter how many times it happens, it still hits like it were the first…
When I give my all and it is not enough
When sadness smokes an insult
I am overlaid in its puff
When a promise is betrayed
I know you let my secret run wild
My soul burns
In a tear kindled fire
My heart is not taken seriously
Again pushed into a corner
Just my Savior and me
Well l was inspired 🌹
I find inspiration every day from each of you, this place has been so healing for me- just sayin—> thank you!
I picked some inspiring quotes from Abraham Hicks that I wanted to share for my inspiration tonight.
Also please please check out Eric Ease. He really pumped me up today with his determination to “make a decision each day to move forward”. He helped remind me that it is OK to be good to ourselves even when others slam us for it. He is courageous, encouraging and a powerhouse of strength-thank you Ease.
Today I choose to love my messy self
Here is a reality check to make you smile this Saturday morning showing the life of architecture students. People will say to me, “Ah, your husband is an architect?” as if it is some mystical experience or at the very least, well paying! As you can see from this post, right from the beginning architecture demands late hours, inspiration, creativity but most of all hard work which is ultimately rewarding, if not always monetarily !
The Struggle Is Real: 10 Feelings Experienced By Every Architecture Student
Architecture school: It’s a veritable cauldron of emotions, the like of which is unlikely to compare with any other environment we will work in. The extreme highs and lows that accompany every late night design session and critical review can be exhausting – each semester brings with it mental challenges that leave a permanent impression…

Woman in Gold by Gustav Klimt
This film is a glimpse into the Nazis of the third Reich plundering art work throughout Europe. Helen Mirren, tells the true story of one Jewish women’s battle to recover her family’s stolen art, six decades after the German soldiers plundered her family’s gorgeous Viennese apartment. This Klimt painting was of Mirren’s aunt and had hung in the family’s living room.
Ryan Reynolds plays a young attorney who agrees to help her. He is able to hold his own against Mirren’s magnificent acting.
The film has lovely glimpses of Vienna, one of the most monumental and elegant cities in Europe. Another very popular painting by Gustave Klimt is “The Kiss.”

We met a young Indian couple, at a dinner party with friends who are both physicians, while in India. He was an Ear, Nose and Throat doc and she an OBGYN. She had lots of stories with which to entertain the assembled group and also a number of phone calls to answer from her patients. We were amazed that she took calls and even went to her clinic once returning before the next course. She was in private practice with no partner so I guess she was used to interrupting phone calls. I am sure, though, that at some time she would have another doctor cover for her. Indians are very hard workers but 24/7 is an impossible task.
The stories that interested us most were about the families’ reaction when a baby is born into their family. When a boy was born there was celebrations and visits from…

Every culture has its own traditions surrounding the birth of a child, but this one might be my favorite.
In a country that historically favors the birth of a son, Piplantri village in India has created a new tradition that not only celebrates the birth of a daughter, but also benefits the community and the planet. You see, every time a girl is born they plant 111 trees. That’s right, 111 trees!
This eco-conscious tradition was started by a former village leader when his own daughter passed away at an early age. Since then over a quarter of a million trees have been planted, ensuring that with each new generation the future gets a little greener.
As part of the tradition in Piplantri, the village also creates a “trust”. With contributions…

Welcome to Fort Ticonderoga ! It sits high above the western shore of Lake Champlain. Originally , it was constructed by the French and called Carillon. It was the site of bitter fighting and seized by the British during the French and India War (1754-1763). Later the fort was captured by the Americans in the first official victory of the American Revolution (1775).
The French and Indian War which was really the French verses the English with various Native American tribes choosing sides with the country they felt would leave their land and disruption of their lives. In all actuality this was the 1st World War as there was fighting on four continents over shipping routes, land, wealth and power.
With the end of that conflict, the end of…

We learned from a good source that Cook Mountain was a good climb for novice climbers. It was said to be a gentle climb with only a slight and short steep incline. Our house was just across the lake and our view all week. We chose a coolish day of 60 degrees to try the gentle climb which we thought was 1.9 miles and would take an hour or so! Oh, were we in for a surprise!
At the trail entrance, we found some hiking sticks that we were happy to borrow. The first section was a lovely trail where we crossed streams, looked and the plants and just laughed and talked as the kids would run ahead and then wait for us. Soon, the grade became steeper, at first in a…

Really nice post 🌹
If you would have told me, just two years ago, that I would be using essential oils, I would have laughed.
If you would have told me, just two years ago, that I would be making (and loving) my own toothpaste, I would have de-friended you. I mean, seriously, who doesn’t love those bubbly tingling scrubbers called “fresh” in your mouth from brushing your teeth right after downing a bloomin’ onion?
