Remembering Snow Day

A snow angel with footprints

Last Saturday came and gone but not before bringing us a blanket of snow (or two). It has been years since my daughter and I had gotten out to enjoy something as beautiful as the snow. Though, it was brief because because beautiful as it may be, I can never enjoy snow for too long.

My daughter even got to make a snow angel, sadly, for the first time. I had to get it on camera. 😊

Not Taking Life Too Seriously #TuesdayTip


There are things I used to take so seriously that I would stressed over it. And the stress wasn’t good at all. I stressed so much that it has affected my health.

Now, I still take certain things seriously, especially if it is in my control. But, when things are considered important, I don’t let it just be. I influence those things in whatever way can.

Taking life seriously doesn’t mean taking everything seriously. It means knowing what will impact your experiences in life, taking those things seriously, and shaking off everything else. It means taking seriously what is in your control and not stressing over things that aren’t.

Do you take life too seriously? Why or why not?

A Feathery Moment


From Pamela Hester

As some of you may have remembered, I had written a post about collecting feathers I’ve found. You can view the post here.

I haven’t stop collecting feathers. The feathers I collect are the ones that I (and my daughter) found in my/our paths. I believed there are over 60 feathers now since my last post about feathers.

It is said that oftentimes it can be messages from the Universe, and/or a loved one who has passed on, or angels.

It is a wonderful feeling to still find feathers, or have them find me since a few years ago.

What about you? Have you ever found feathers in your path before? How do you feel about them?

Final Sample Reading #MondayBlogs


Good morning/afternoon everyone! I hope all is going well with you. The thing with each new year as with any day or month, is to do self-reflection. And to continue to heal parts of me and do any cleansing, whether it’s spiritual, physical, or both, it is needed.

More on that for another post.

I would like to share with you the final sample reading from Secrets Unveil. If you haven’t read the previous sample, you can do so here.

I plan to release the novel this month. I am also still working on the release date and I will keep you updated. I promise.


Chapter 2

“Hey, Paris! Are you coming with us to the store?” A red-haired girl called out to her as she adjusted the straps of her backpack over her shoulders.

Paris’s chestnut eyes took in the two girls she would be studying with and mentally rolled her eyes.

Kayla knew she was supposed to be hanging out with Sean this evening. Still, since he usually likes to cancel out on her, Kayla thought she could save her the trouble by getting her to hang out with friends who enjoy her company.

Standing at five feet, three inches tall with shoulder-length auburn hair, Paris has skin the color of cinnamon and naturally arched eyebrows. Though she likes being around others sometimes, she considers herself a loner.

“Nah, you two go ‘head. I’ll be fine. Sean texted me earlier that he was still coming,” Paris told her. She started walking in the north part of the Science Building and onto the sidewalk from the parking lot. She knows she wasn’t supposed to be standing out by herself because of the school rules. No female student is supposed to be left alone when the sun goes down. And given five minutes, it was getting close for the sun to set.

“Okay, now, if he doesn’t show up, call or text one of us to come back and get you. Don’t walk like you did last time. The store isn’t that far, but that doesn’t mean you need to do it,” Kayla went on, expressing concern for her.

Paris nodded her head in response, not feeling it. It was pointless, and she felt like it was also fake. An aging security guard was standing nearby, observing the surroundings with his hands on his hips. Oh, I feel so safe, Paris thought sarcastically.

“Trust me, I’m good. Sean can’t possibly be late or a no-show, again!” After the girls said their final farewells, Paris let out a huge sigh and saw that Sean wasn’t waiting for her like he said he would in his black Mustang. With the conversation she just had with Kayla about him, her mind immediately went to the thought that he was running late for sure, or worse, a no-show.

“Don’t do me like this, Sean!” She rummaged hastily through her purse for her Samsung cell phone and cursed.

The phone went black, and when she tried to hit the side button, nothing happened. She was infuriated. How did her cell phone die so quickly? The last time she checked, it was at forty-five percent, and that was the last hour!

She figured she had enough time to make it home to charge it since she left her charger there or could have used Sean’s. Now, she has no idea if he was trying to call her; however, it still doesn’t make any sense why he’s not there right now in the first place!

Paris turned around, fed up with the waiting around. She contemplated using the phone in the school to call him. As soon as Paris spun on her heels to do so, she ended up running smack dab into a tall guy with dreadlocks hanging down inches from his buttocks. She gasps.

This dude is so damn fine; she was mesmerized. Paris tried to remember where she saw him

This dude is so damn fine; she was mesmerized. Paris tried to remember where she saw him because he looked so familiar, but her brain and mouth failed to work at the moment.
