Love this!

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched.  They must be felt with the heart
-Helen Keller

love to me is....
                Those 3 faces looking back at me
                    Who love me even if I’m upset with them
                    Who love me even when they HAD to help clean the house
                    Who love me even when they don’t like supper
                    Who love me unconditionally, just because I am lucky
enough to get to be their Mom
                The wonderful man who I get to call my husband
                    Who loves my children, even though they aren’t his very own
                    Who holds me when I’m scared
                    Who is one of my biggest fans
                    Who tells me to believe in myself
                    Who I thank God for each and every day
                    Who has a family that has taken ALL OF US in as their own
                     and I love each and every one of them for it.
                My Mom…
                    Who is one of the most beautiful women in the world
                    Who IS my biggest fan
                    Who even though has a horrible disease, still has the
                      most faith of anyone I know
                    Who has been by my side through everything and STILL loves me

                My Dad….
                    Who was taken from us way too soon
                    Who I will always be known as Shay Bear
                    Who I miss with all of my heart
                    For a love bigger than any of us are capable of understanding!

May each of you be surrounded by LOVE this Valentine’s Day and every day!

Hugs & Loves

Be brave
“we would never learn to be brave & patient if there were only joy in the world”
~Helen Keller
I’m having difficulties being both brave and patient right now…. So I hope this gives you some inspiration as I’m hoping it does me.

Jeremiah 29:11 

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

My favorite verse of all time….
 “Am I using my talents and expertise to their fullest potential?” If I ever say no, then I need to figure a way to make it a yes…
 I recently read this quote on a dear friend’s blog “The Network Today.”  I was reminded that no, I’m not using my talents.  I do believe that the only reason I have any talent is because God has trusted me with it.  So, I have chosen to say “yes” and that is why I started this blog.   As a busy mother and coach’s wife, I need to remind myself that it’s okay to have time for me, for my creative time!  We are told to nourish our bodies with food, but we also need to nourish our souls… painting is the food for my soul!
