You Rock – Own it!

Care less about what others think
Own up to your awesomeness
Nourish your hopes and dreams
Find light, even if it is obscured
Improvise, if necessary
Dance, celebrating the true you
Encourage others who live in darkness
Never give into negative criticism
Calm is always the best choice
Enjoy life by living in your happiness

Everyone owns it, but sometimes it slips out of grip. The truth is even if you feel insecure, looking and acting confident will not only make you feel better, but others will perceive you in that positive way. Walk with your head up, chin up, and notice what and who is around, i.e., be aware of your surroundings. In doing so, you will appear strong to others. The more you practice this, the more confident you’ll feel, which will cause a ripple effect of positive thoughts, emotions, and actions in your life.

On this positive note, I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving, and let us remember to be thankful not only on this one day, but throughout the entire year. And with these words, I continue to keep the fire victims in CA in my heart and prayers.

With Love & Friendship, Lauren 🧡🧡🧡

Forever Love – Acrostic

Faint is how you make me feel and not
Only when our lips connect, but when I
Remember our first embrace and how my
Emotions twirled inside of me; dizzy and
Voiceless I was and those moments still exist
Even though decades have come and gone
Reflections of those first days are magical
Learning the true meaning of bliss, an
Out of the ordinary feeling, knowing you are my
Valentine, lover and friend for the rest of our life and for
Eternity~

For those of you who have been following me
for awhile now, you know that I’m a romantic,
never hopeless, though. So because I’ve
been in a sentimental, sappy kind of mood,
I’m re-posting this from two years ago,

written for my hubby. If you’ve already seen this,
I appreciate you reading again! 🙂 ♥

See you next year! ♥

Dear Friends,

It’s been a busy time now with our daughter home from college for the holidays and hubby and I are enjoying our full house again with her and our son! So I haven’t been online as much and I’m sorry for missing your wonderful posts. I always feel really bad when I can’t stay caught up. Anyway, this will be the last one for me for 2013. However, I’ll still try to visit blogs when I can..
I won’t completely fall off the radar! 🙂

I wish you an abundance of love, peace, laughter and many new wonderful memories during this holiday season. And a big “Thank You” for your visits, as well as, for supporting the arrival of my debut poetry book. I appreciate all of you!  Sending many hugs, much love and I wish you a safe and Happy New Year, too!
I’ll see you in 2014! ♥

May this holiday find you smiling
Enjoying priceless times with loved ones
Rejoicing in the birth of our Dear Savior
Realizing your blessings and finding peace
Yearning for the Holy birthday of the year
Caring for others who need their spirits lifted
Hosting family and friends in cozy get-togethers
Remembering, any act of kindness is truly a gift
Imagining the festive spirit throughout the New Year
Seeing the delight and wonder through a child’s eyes
Taking time and letting God’s loving light shine through you
Making magical moments that will turn into precious memories
Allowing yourself tranquility in the midst of the seasonal chaos
Silently saying a prayer for those who are in need of God’s healing grace

Saturday – Acrostic

Sunrise calls early, an

alarm, golden, intense

tickling with its rays, sending an

undercurrent to venture outside and

renew spirits with beauty surrounding,

diving into soothing ocean’s song,

abandoning heavy burdens in mind,

yesterday becoming today’s gift

ENJOY YOUR DAY! ♥

 

 

 

Friend Acrostic ♥

For who wants to be alone?
Reveling in life’s joy or weeping
In between those moments; I’ll be your
Everlasting support, a listening heart,
Never will I take you for granted, for you are a
Dear soul who I can grow with, without growing apart

Sending Warm Holiday Wishes ♥

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

It’s been three months since I’ve blogged
and I’ve missed you all! 
This acrostic poem is from last year,
but the meaning is just as sincere.
Some of you know why I’ve been absent and for now,
things are stable, but I’m still unsure about returning
to blogland. However, I couldn’t let this year end
without sending my sincere holiday wishes.
So, I wish for you Love, Peace, Hope and Miracles
this Christmas season and not only in the New Year to come,
but for forever~

Hugs and Blessings,
Lauren

HAPPY FRIDAY ACROSTIC :)

Hi there
Are you ready for the weekend…for
Playing, prancing, painting,
Paddle boating or pajama parties?
YAY, YAHOO, YIPPEE

Forget dilemmas, at least for today
Rejoice and raise your arms to the sky
In gratitude for the new, amazing sunrise
Dive into happiness, embrace it with gusto
And stay there for a long, long time, then
Yodel on top of a mountain  ♫
