,th8DDDMF44When thinking about what to give to your children…

Give them roots anchored in love, a puzzle to teach them how to problem solve and wings to soar through the challenges and obstacles on the path of life!

Hugs and Love from me to you,

Change!!!

careerchange_2484438b

Everything changes: seasons, environments, people, likes & dislikes, technology, time and you. I recently changed vocations from the Non Profit back to the For Profit sector.

Change is the constant that we all must adapt to at certain points in our lives. Our attitude and how we maneuver through these changes is important.

No matter how challenging change can be, make the decision to embrace it and make it work for you. Fighting against it will only leave you frustrated and spinning your wheels.

Like a wave, you can ride it out or go tumbling along while being thrashed and dragged about. Change is unavoidable.

The good news is… change can be better than you thought and even more rewarding but you’ll never find out if you’re in fear and constantly complaining. You’ll miss the beauty and blessing it brings. Hugs and love from me to you! Valarie

A measure of love!

A measure of love is not how much you give but how much you give up for someone else! Prefer your brother in love.

Life’s Surprises!

Well, my sister is visiting my parents in NJ from Germany where she has lived for 9 or 10 years. After taking a family with her trip down south 2 weeks ago, I had to fly to NJ last week because she was having emergency brain surgery to remove a mass. WHAT!?! Yes, life’s surprise in deed. The surgery was successful but now she can’t walk and speaks slowly at times. Still, her attitude is positive as she presses through this temporary challenge. 

First, let me say this, travelers insurance is a must for those who travel a lot. Her insurance covered the surgery (how much I don’t know) as well as transport (soon) back to Germany with a medical professional. All I had to do was call and they handled everything occasionally asking me for a document. Talk about being efficient and helpful! Also, thank God they have an office here in the U.S. because I don’t speak or understand German.

Now, I’m taking an unscheduled trip to Germany with her because health care is so expensive here that her travel insurance wants to send her back to Germany to do rehab since she needs to be in an actual facility. Can we say FMLA with no pay!!! Yes, another one of Life’s surprises!  But that’s what love does!

I won’t complain because she could’ve died. I thank God that it was detected in time! Whatever’s left of the hospital bill we will deal with without stress or worry! I’m just thankful and blessed to still have my sister! 

Hugs and Love Valarie

Breaking News: Love Never Fails

But love them anyway!

Nurture them with love; it just might be something they’ve never experience before.

Love that says… I love you despite your faults!

It’s called unconditional love and it takes practice!!! Start practicing today.

Words!

Never underestimated words! They have the power to take a life or save a life.

Never underestimated the power of imagination, it’s what gives hope to dreams! It’s the basis for a foundation to be built. Our imagination encourages us to go further and reach higher. A word written or spoken makes it all tangible and achievable.

Hugs and love from me to you. Valarie

What do you See: Searching

 

sad pics (62)

How many times have you found yourself searching the night sky? What were you looking for? Did you find it?

Did you see a glimmer of hope that gave you the strength to endure a little longer? Or, do constantly search the sky for a silver lining.

Questions, questions, questions?

The real questions are, “Where does your faith lie? In whom do you trust? Dreams keep us going and hope encourages us to never give up.”

If we are not careful, we will always find ourselves waiting and longing for something that’s not meant to be while missing out on what is.

Hugs and love from me to you! Valarie

Breaking News!

Love is on the rise as it searches out broken, lonely, wounded, scared, discouraged, angry and bitter hearts to pour itself in. We’re asking if you or someone you know is in need of love, let us know immediately! No-one should be without love.

Hugs and love from me to you. Valarie
