HiMH Final

Live and work together,
or lose everything that matters…

The ultimatum tilts Dru Hampton’s contented life in Chandlerville, Georgia, on its ear. The man that Vivian, her cantankerous boss and benefactor, wants Dru to partner with-live with-is Brad Douglas, who’s let Dru down every way a man can.

Sheriff’s deputy Brad Douglas has come a long way since his rebellious youth. He’s back home to care for Vivian, his ill grandmother. He’s stayed out of Dru’s way all these years to make up for the hurt he once caused her. Now, the delightfully mischievous Vivian’s dying wish is for them to rebuild at least a working relationship together…and she’s betting on them rediscovering much more.

The family business and the Douglas home that Dru and Brad both cherish will be sold if they don’t resolve their differences. Can these childhood sweethearts make up and reclaim each other’s hearts before it’s too late?

Fairy tales are more than true…

July 11th, 2014

Once upon a time is every day. Our life to dream, our future to bend…

Make our Own Fairytaile WM

The dream is the thing, the vision, the voice. Any time, anywhere, we are what we see and what we choose to believe, so choose wisely.

“Fairy tales are more than true:
not because they tell us that dragons exist,
but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
~ Neil Gaiman

Do they come true, the tales we tell? Read the rest of this entry »

Everybody has a dream…

July 9th, 2014

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

perfect day wm

Don’t confuse dreams with fairy tales. They’re meant to be the inspiration that gets us through the hard work, sustains us over the long haul, and says, “Get over it, you’re doing fine,” when we stumble about, clinging to our path.

“Dreams don’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat,
determination and hard work.”
~ Colin Powell

We have to first Wake Up from the dream and face reality for what it is. We must find our purpose each and every day, keeping our motives true. We must want with every fiber of our being, without losing sight of the consequences of the sustained work to be done to reach a dream sweeter than imagination. Because once achieved, that dream is the culmination of effort only we could give and imagination only we’ve been blessed with.

Our dreams are our reality. They’re our voice. They’re our all, if we want them badly enough.

“Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die tomorrow.” ~ James Dean

Live with your all, your dream firmly in your reality, fighting for forever.

That’s the way to wake up every morning.

“Live your life from your heart…”

July 7th, 2014

“Live your life from your heart. Share your heart. And your story will touch and heal people’s souls.” ~ Melody Beatti

Grateful habit wm

THIS is why I write, create, wake up in the morning and work through the night at a job that shouldn’t be a job, but the business of it is the only way I reach the readers I’m blessed to.

So I’m grateful–insomnia and anxiety-riddled rough drafts and painful edits and all.

“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~ Melody Beatti

I’m so grateful to life the life I do.

“To love beauty…”

July 7th, 2014

“To love beauty is to see light.” ~ Victor Hugo

quilt tranquility wm

As easy as it is to submit to the problems and the hassles and the disappointments of any day, we’re rewarded so much more by seeking that flicker of light our soul needs to catch flame and thrive. Amidst the most trying of circumstances, there is an ember of who we want most to be. BE that someone, despite the rest.

If we make each moment about who and what should consume us, then that sparkling goal becomes our reality, not all that stands in our way.

“Each one prays to God according to his own light.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Today you are you…

July 2nd, 2014

“Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!” ~ Dr. Seuss

Dr Suess Fun is Good wm

And always remember, fun is good…

Happily Ever Now…

July 2nd, 2014

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” ~Winston Churchill

happily ever after

Now is our real, our chance to mark time as more than killing.

What of now will you remember always?

Make today a happy that stays.

Because…courage.

Because you lived.
