Is your heart heavy today? Feeling a little lonesome, maybe missing someone special? 

Here’s an idea to help: Jewlry Box Treasures

Take a walk down memory lane with a photo album, a scrapbook, Photo Memories an old jewelry box, a closet laden with old clothes, a trunk in the attic, a shelf in the garage – wherever those old, treasured life memories are quietly tucked away. Pull one out – touch it, run your hand over it, feel the texture, smell the fabric, hold it, let it speak to you; close your eyes and remember; live again that moment, that event, that person, that time.

Allow that special memory to kiss your heart with gladness, with warmth, with love!  With memory of a special moment in time. Go ahead and Wedding Dresslet that smile spread across your face. Laugh! Let your heart breathe and beat with treasured memory!

Revive your heart!

Remember those special, heartlifting moments that made life worth living. That’s what life is all about – and what your life yet holds in the future!  No matter your age, or stage in life, there are still beautiful memories to create, to live, to savor! To make you smile in reflection in years to come.  And to pass down to the next generation. 

So go on, relive those past exquisite moments.  And then let your mind drift; dream, plan, create! Sing, dance, paint, play, write, cook, shop, make a phone call, travel, work a homeless shelter, babysit, teach, whatever makes you feel good!

Step out and create a new beautiful memory and share your heart today.

After all, the world needs the very special gift that is uniquely

Memorial Day Remembrance

Memorial Day     In the United States, Memorial Day, is a day set aside to remember those who have died while serving in our Country’s military.  Originally, this day was called Decoration Day, after the Civil War in 1868, when an organization of Union veterans (the Grand Army of the Rebublic), established it as a time to honor those who died in the war by decorating their graves with flowers. The Confederate veterans had a competing tradition honoring their fallen, but by the 20th century, the two traditions merged, and Memorial Day became a day to honor ALL Americans who died while in military service.

     Today, as we reflect on the tremendous number of fellow Americans who have died while in service to (our) Country, let us all also merge our hearts, as a country, as a people, just as the Union and Confederate Veterans did.  Let’s take today to honor these men and women and their families who gave so much.  Without the sacrifice each of them gave, our Great America would not be Great and we would not remain a free People. 

Their sacrifice has made living in the United States of America better for every single one of us.

To all our Fallen Military

We remember and honor you today.

May God bless each of you and your families,

And May God bless our United States of America!

Peaceful, Nice Veteran’s Day to You!

Peaceful, Nice Veteran’s Day to you all!

In reflection today of those in my family, and those from around our Country who have served, and yet serve, and in thinking particularly of the changes that serving can and does make in our troops and their family’s lives, I came across this song Stand With Me by the band Downhere. It carries the message I wish to say to each of these faithful, serving in our Armed Forces –

I will stand with you!

May our entire Country stand with each of you, today, and always – God bless you and your families, and thank you for putting yourself out there for your Country and each of us. I appreciate each one of you

We, As a People, Remember

On this 13th Anniversary of September 11th:

We, as a people, remember.

To all those grieving, all those who lost a beloved Mom, Dad, Wife, Husband, Partner, Daughter, Son, Sister, Brother, Aunt, Uncle, Niece, Nephew, Cousin, friend, co-worker, pet, or acquaintance, 13 years ago in the terrorists’ acts against the United States of America – your loss is important to us; America, as a people, remember, and we grieve with you.  May you find comfort and peace in your heart and may God surround you and envelope you with loving people to comfort and uphold you today.  May you know that God holds each and every one of your precious tears in His bottle, for He cares for you and your loss.

For those of another faith, or no faith – your loss is just as important to us: America, as a people, grieves with you.  We pray that on this 13th anniversary of the terrorists’ acts against the United States of America, you find comfort and peace in your heart, and that you, too, are surrounded and enveloped with loving people to comfort and hold you up today.  You matter.  Your loss matters.

We, as a people, as Americans, open our hearts, our eyes, and our mouths today as together we shed tears and words of loss and grief.

For we, as a people, as Americans, remember.

 We, as a people, as Americans, are the United States of America – and we must unite – from sea to shining sea!  With our hearts and minds united in brotherhood, we will raise our Star Spangled Banner to yet waive!  And through our Country’s dark nights, sharing our tears and pain we’ll forge strength, and from our strength we’ll find courage; with our courage we’ll seek wisdom and fight for Truth.  And United in Truth, we shall win Liberty, Justice, and Freedom!

In the Land of the Free, and the Home of the Brave

The United States of America

Let Freedom Ring!
