One Lovely Blog Award

Kindness Matters

As a newcomer to the world of sharing my stories and connecting with others through theirs, I was unsure of what to make of the “blog awards” that I see strewn about in the cyber world.  I do not share my site, stories or other stories I write for awards and hesitated to put this out there.  I do this to connect with others on a personal level as if they were family.  I do this to lift others up in mind, body and spirit. A sly grin emerges when I read of the small joys, obstacles overcome and the strength discovered in each and everyone of you.  With that said, one of the simplest yet most important lessons that I try to instill in my students and in my own children is that kindness matters.  

 Theutopiauniverse nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award.  This was a simple, kind gesture and no act of kindness no matter how small is ever wasted. Thank you, Brooke.


Here’s a little bit more about Me:

~My children are in every breath that I take.

~My place of stillness and peace will always be sitting around a campfire and in the woods of my beloved North Carolina.

~I’ve discovered my WHY of life and can help you discover yours.

~Don’t let my blog and domain name scare you… I am as gentle as a lamb and strong as a lion.  It is simply meant to seek out and connect with those who despite their fears-scars, are willing to run the miles- step in the arena and kick a*s in life.

~On a very shallow level, I despise everything about doing laundry!

~I am beyond passionate about my two torches in life- 1. serving kids and veterans  2. keeping our homes, schools and communities safe, strong and prosperous. Leadership starts from the roots of the tree.

~I will always be eternally grateful for a pivotal moment in my life standing under the stars, on a cold, drizzly night along the rivers edge.

~I secretly love skydiving.  Shhh.

~Since we are talking awards here, I was the 4th and 5th grade spelling bee champion! LOL

~My tv hasn’t been on in months.  I love, love, love to read(nonfiction).
