Hello Courageous 2018!!

 

 

Courageous Lips n Looks

So my new endeavor for 2018 is a small business! I’m so excited and just love the product! There are too many things I’ve thought up, many ideas but never followed through because of different reasons. But life is too short and I want to share a different story. I’m not getting YOUNGER and retirement is close.  So, I’m doing it now!

So if you love make up and lip color, then check my Facebook story, link is above. I think you will love it too!  This will not be a “selling” platform, I promise.  This baby, “Life is a Beach”, is my personal, creative, “just me” place!  My “Lips” have a different place in the cyber world.  🙂

But what I do want to do here on my “Lips” journey is share what I learn as I go.  I’d love to have you come along too.

Have a blessed day!

Merry Christmas!

  • 701D546A-EA1E-4B34-8FAF-341EAA2A741FMerry Christmas WordPress World! I do hope you are spending your holidays the way you’d like. I was just off work 3 days ago so Christmas has come and gone. Bye, Santa! A little relieved it’s passed and was looking forward to rest. Today is the day after. I am sitting in med clinic with a sprained ankle! While my break from school just started, I may wind up in a boot for the SECOND time.  At this point I am not too sure what it is. Joint degeneration is causing my sprains perhaps— symptoms of aging. 😐 It all started when I hit my 50th year. I’m 52 now. I blame it on a previous injury of my youth. Perhaps I’d be up and around more if I didn’t have that prior injury. Heck, things happen for a reason.

But here I am once again waiting to be called. My ankle hurting with any movement and any touch. Stinks! I’ll be forced to rest once again.

Good bye, Santa!

Alone With You: A poem of love on Father’s Day

Inspirational-Family-Quotes

To my husband,

 You have inspired me in so many ways and have helped me open up doors that were closed for a long time.  You have shown me what love can do!  You are an amazing role model of love and firmness to our gang, and for that I am thankful.  This poem is for you, my love!

Happy Father’s Day!

Your Missus– 

When I’m alone with you
I feel free and fresh
When I’m alone with you
You make me feel safe and sure.

Whatever the world brings my way
You are there to break it up for me
Your love is my shield
Your love is my permission.

When I’m alone with you
I can be just how I am.
When I’m alone with you
You love me just this way.

Your caresses are my shield
Your hugs are my security
Your kisses reaffirm how lucky I am
That I can be just me.

Whenever I’m alone with you.
You make me feel like I’m home.
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I’m whole.

I will always and forever love you.
I thank God that he brought me –you.

A Reason

We meet people for a reason. We make friendships be it for a long or short time, it’s all in the scope of the maker’s plan.  It seems that’s been my story at different times of my adult life.  When I feel like I don’t quite fit in, or something is missing, I make a friend then they are gone.  For a time I thought God was putting people in my life for me to help. And it really seemed that I was an “ear” who would listen, or a “shoulder” to cry on, or someone’s friend when they had none.  And it was okay because that was my path.  I don’t get phased by things or people so much but …maybe I do now.

Today I made a friend and now is leaving. A friend that you need everyday at work, we all need that. But, it was for a spell, again.  Perhaps someone else is coming in my path that I will give something to, or perhaps I will receive.  I said I was ready for the move so here it is.

Heart still aches.
