The other day Jeanne Oliver asked on her Facebook page “What do you want more of in your life?” My answer was COURAGE. The past year or so I have been struggling in so many areas of my life. I have felt so full of fear. I let it overtake me. The definition of COURAGE is the ability to overcome something that frightens someone. It may sound extreme but somedays I need COURAGE just to get up and face the day. In a few short weeks I am turning 35. I am determined to face this next year BRAVE and COURAGEOUS. I will find strength in my God, my family, my friends. I will look for things to look forward to and be thankful for, rather than things to be fearful of.
Last year I lost one of my very best friends to cancer. She was 35. She was so BRAVE. So COURAGEOUS. In honor of my dear friend, whose birthday is today, I am choosing to be full of COURAGE. I invite you to join me. And as a way to kickstart this next year I am hosting a birthday party of sorts. I know an amazing artist, Leslie Ackman, who is going to lead us in an art class. We will laugh and create and eat. The cost of the class is only $15 to be paid that night. I do need an RSVP. There will be goodies to win and goodies to eat. Join me at The Art Experience in Maryville, MO on Friday November 15, 2013 from 6-9 p.m. I can’t wait to celebrate with you!Comments are welcome!
