Some Like It Hot
I definitely am one of those people…I like it hot: steaming hot baths/showers, jalepanos, the heat of the sun and don’t even give me a lukewarm coffee (even worse -iced coffee). Hot is my preference.
At least once in life, we all experience the flame going out. But it doesn’t have to remain dim. All it takes is a little spark of hope and kindness and love and perseverance to fan the flame.
Here are a few quotes that I’m hoping spark a little inspiration for you:
Of all the fires, love is the only inexhaustible one.—Pablo Neruda Great things never came from comfort zones. Decide you want it more than you are afraid of it. – Cosby No longer bereft, you blaze.—Emily When eyes have died in its gaze, know the heart had died in its blaze. -unknown Love what you do so that it sets others ablaze with inspiration. Accept things as they are or accept responsibility for changing them. Be who you were created to be and you will set the world on fire. -St Catherine of Siena The antidote to exhaustion isn’t rest. It’s wholeheartedness.—David Whyte
The tongue is a little member, and it can boast of great things. See how much wood or how great a forest a tiny spark can set ablaze! -James

A Leap of Faith
Have you ever had to make a leap of faith? A few years back, my husband and I attended a director’s meeting that turned our world upside down. We walked away with that sinking feeling that life was about … Continue reading
I’m that person who reaches her third or fourth close before finally hanging up the phone.
I’m that lady that kisses and cuddles everyone at least a second time before boarding the plane.
I’m the girl who searches endlessly for friends from my childhood on Facebook (where could they be?)
I hate good-byes…so they are rather long when I have to give them. Summer is leaving me and all I want to do is hold on tight and never let go!
See yah soon, summer.
I’ll be waiting.
