About Me

My photo

Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Snippets and Sound Bites – Slick Lessons Learned

While I was Greasy…10 Life Lessons and a Bonus.

Most mistakes are not fatal. And life does not come to a screeching halt when you do something stupid.

Laughter is great for the soul.

Unless you attract flies or bright lights, chances are, most people won’t notice your flaws right away.

A sincere smile draws attention away from flaws. Unless your mouth is a faux pas factory – then you might want to work up another trick.

When people laugh at you, you can join them, or find a corner to pout in. And if you hide in a corner, or in a dark room, or with a bag over your head, you miss stuff.

Attitude is sometimes the only control factor you own.

If fear of failure, or ridicule, or love rules your life you miss out on the sweetness of living.

People vs. situations will almost always have unique outcomes.

Just because one person found success, doesn’t mean you’ll find it in the same place, and that’s okay…because….perseverance pays off.

Lemonade is made from lemons under pressure with lots of added sweetening.

Life is a learning process. Only those willing to learn have something worth teaching.
