#WisdomWednesday: Missing Dad

Hello everyone,

In November 2017 I lost my father. A thought and idea that no “Daddy’s girl” ever could believe would be a reality. Tears are never far from my eyes when I recall the childhood memories, parties, music, concerts, lessons, lectures and laughter. My father was not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but, supportive of his family, loyal to his friends and down for his children.

I share this quote, as it captures the stage I am presently in…

To Lose someone you love_alter your heart forever.jpg

As I began to see my father age and knew that the end was too close for comfort, I wrote a song entitled ‘Superman’ as a tribute of love.

Take a moment today to tell someone that you love them and appreciate the relationship that you share. Life is precious and very, very short.

Ciao!

#WisdomWednesday - Take time to believe in others

Hello Everyone,

Today I woke up thinking about my Father and how he blessed my life by believing in me. Though he is no longer with us physically, his lessons and love live on.

#WisdomWednesday - Why fit in? Stand out!

Hi Everyone,

Today I saw this quote and was reminded of my childhood spending many nights reading Dr. Seuss books, dreaming dreams of tall tales and great feats. Enjoying the fun colorful characters, wonderful quirky humor and unforgettable cadence of rhyme woven throughout.

Great Dr. Seuss Quote

Great Dr. Seuss Quote

Plain and simple "be yourself".  Somewhere in between childhood and adult life, our journey can overwhelm and tempt us to care about "what we look like", "who likes us", "if I am ______ enough" and a zillion other obstacles....At the end of the day Who really cares?

You may need to hone your craft, go back to school, stand in your truth and/or be rejected many times as you pitch your idea(s) but don't look back or conform because no one can see your vision.  When YOU believe it then you can see it.

Ciao!

Wisdom Wednesday - A word from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Hello everyone,

February celebrates two things that I love.  Love with Valentine's Day and Black History Month as a time to remember and reflect on contributions from our ancestors and those making history today.  It made me smile to find this quote today.  A statement on love from the great Dr. King.

"Love is the only force capable of transforming and enemy into a friend".  

Let's love each other deeply.

A Time for Everything

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.                  Ecc 3:1-8

Take time to enjoy every season of life.

Ciao,

Latrice
