You are special the way you are. Just like the word because is misspelled people may think you are not right or incorrect because you’re different. The difference is what makes you special and unique. I know I’m different and I stand out. My thoughts of love and forgiveness catches people off guard. I’m not to good to be true. I my not be in the majority but I’m not alone. Don’t treat me like everyone else, if you do, you’ll never learn about me and you’ll cheat yourself of the experience and pleasure of doing so. I was afraid to be myself and what others would think. I tried to fit into a mold and it work but I wasn’t happy. Then I met myself and the fear left. Don’t be afraid to be you, be afraid if you never do!
I had an amazing time in Las Vegas 2 weeks ago. If you haven’t been to the Grand Canyon…Go! Words and pictures can’t describe the view, feel and beauty of the scene.
I met up with two of my girlfriends for a great time. More pics and posts to follow. Until then…
Enjoy life where you are right now. Learn to love and appreciate those around you. Never settle being second in the life of others and especially your own. Like the Grand Canyon, you worth goes far beyond the eyes can see. Each formation tells a story and those who value you will take the time to discover what it is… a National Treasure!!!
Hugs and love from me to you.
Occasionally we need to remind others that they’re not alone! We never know what someone is going through because they always wear a smile. Perhaps things are chaotic and they’re barely able to stay afloat but still they smile through it all. Maybe they’re always mindful of others but no-one is mindful of them.
There really doesn’t need to be a reason to let someone know that you are thinking about them. Do it just because! Let me know that you’re here, you care and you miss them. Do it because you love them! Valarie
Love needs to be seen, heard and felt!
To All Mother’s and mother like figures, Happy Mother’s Day!
Thank you for your listening ears and endless tears full of love and concern.
For those of you who mothers are no longer in your life… cherish the memories.
For those of you who’s mothers were not worth remembering, endeavor to be the mother to your children you wish you had.
Love in action – It’s never too late to love! Valarie Lovelight
Within your hands is the ability to show and be at peace with others. This peace will not always be welcomed or appreciated, don’t let that stop you. Be at peace with all people whenever possible. Never let anyone still your peace or break it!
Most importantly, be at peace with yourself. Love and Peace goes hand in hand, so next time you extend a hand, raise a hand, wave a hand etc., think of peace. Valarie
Love in action – Peace and love makes a better person.

Happy Anniversary is the announcement that I received from WordPress. I did not actually know if WordPress called it a “Birthday” or an “Anniversary”… however, May 3 of last year was the beginning of another phase in my life as The Abuse Expose’ was birthed. For this reason, I consider it a birthday.
You see, for many years, I had been keeping journals of my life including my thoughts, my feelings, my dreams, my fears, and even my prayers. I had written about my struggles through my marriage falling apart with the abuses revealed, the traumas, the death threats, and the total turmoil and confusion that engulfed my life. I had also written how God started revealing Himself to me in my brokenness.

There are days when I feel like I’m being judged. I take the path least travelled. I walk where others wouldn’t think twice about going and I purpose to love the unlovable. Am I different, special, bold, brave, daring, fearless, unique or more equipped? NO! I’m just me trying to love others the way God does.
I’ve walked through storms and have been tossed, drenched, cold, hungry, alone, lonely and left to drown but I survived because of LOVE himself seeing me through. The storms have strengthened me and opened my eyes to see others in the midst of their storms and extend a hand of love.
My storms have molded my heart and continually transform me into the love I have received from above!
So, the next time you see me in a storm, encourage me through because it might just be for you! – Valarie
When the trials of life takes you to the edge and you feel like you’re barely holding on, don’t give up!
When you’re barely holding on and another storm hit, don’t give up!
Just when you think you’re about to topple over, don’t give up!
Although the winds of life toss you to and fro, take comfort in the fact that you’ll bend but never break.
You may be on the edge, but if you don’t give up, you’ll see that you are deeply rooted and are able to survive it all.
Then again, you might be on the edge of your past looking out at your future but too scared to let go!
Hugs & Love Valarie
I wanted to do something for the year on love. Here are my love calendars. I created them to sell to offset the cost of editing my books.
Ha, I knew it wasn’t going to work because I gave them away or as Christmas gifts. Yep, I could never be a sales person. Lol. I can only be me and I love to give.
Oh, I did some muscle car calendars as well with a the Mustang above, Viper, Camaro and Corvette. Yes, even I was drooling over how great those calendars looked. The blue beast Mustang is my favorite it takes no prisoners. Ok… back to love!
Love in action – When you love what you do, you’d do it for free. Valarie Lovelight
