One Person Who Impacted My Life
Many people profoundly impacted me throughout my life but when a friend asked this question on facebook, the first person who came to mind is my dorm mother in Africa.
At times I felt alone and abandoned because my missionary responsibilities required them to leave my sister and I when we were little. When we grew older we went away to a mission boarding school for three months at a time and then we came home for a month.

Today I felt totally stressed out. I have a great opportunity to speak to share my program, “Write Your Story NOW ~ Leave A Legacy Your Loved Ones Will Treasure.“ The speaking event is a good opportunity to educate, empower and equip others to write their stories.
I have a lot to do to get ready for it and many decisions to make which make me feel a lot of pressure because I want to do it right. In the midst of thinking all these issues through, I had a sudden craving for chocolate. I’m health conscious so I’ve purchased raw cocoa because of it’s superior health benefits and came up with my own variation of a raw chocolate recipe.

Yesterday when I shopped in our local grocery store, right when I needed something. a sales clerk rounded the corner and asked, “Are you finding everything?”
I smiled, “You appeared at the right time because I’m actually looking for. . .” and I told her what I needed.
She immediately said, “Well this is over here. I’ll take you there,” Then she told me where the other item was. After I finished with the first one and walked into the main aisle, she came out to make sure I got to the right place for the second item.
Have you ever bought a product personally or for your business that you thought would profit you but in the end it didn’t?
We’ve all had that experience.
An online promotion says you need to act by a certain time to take advantage of their offer and you make a hasty decision. You lose your time and money acting in haste and end up poorer for it.
In another scenario, you sign up for something legitimate but you’re not diligent about implementing what you bought.
King Solomon, one of the wisest men who ever lived, made this observation.

Do you feel draggy a lot? Take a look at your sugar consumption.
White sugar and I are not good friends.
Sugar is one friend who always brings me down. LOL! Not only that, sugar is a friend who makes me irritable.
Honestly I got tired of the roller coaster high and then crashes sugar used to take me on. Sugar would have me singing the blues, make my mind fuzzy and leave me to walk around in a mental fog. I do not regret leaving my friendship with sugar.
When you know who you are and
What you have to offer
You don’t have to worry about competition
No one can be who you are or
Can do it in the way you can do it
Even if others offer similar services
YOU are unique and special
You have a niche no one can fill

Do you ever wonder if you’re making the right decision or the best decision you could make?
My friend’s husband had died a year and a half ago after a long and happy marriage. She confided in me. ”Now that I’m alone, there’s a number of business decisions and then decisions on the house I have to make by myself. Sometimes I wonder if I’m making the right one.”
“I understand how you feel. I feel that way too sometimes. I find it challenging sometimes to make decisions by myself now too. I like the idea that God will give us wisdom for every decision we make.
Today, I had a lot to do. I walked by my watercolors. My heart longed to stop and enjoy them. Most of the time I walk on because it takes time to get everything out and then put it away. Because of other demands with my work, those creative urges get repressed and leave an an unfulfilled longing.
However, today I decided to apply the 15 minute principle. I pulled out my little travel case of watercolors and sat down and began to play with them. I have taken drawing and watercolor classes before but set those on the shelf for years. Recently, I started going to a watercolor class again.
