#ThoughtfulThursday Two

Knowing someone is there for you

Standing in your corner

Through thick and thin

And thinner times

And through thicker times again

Knowing someone is cheering you on

Having you always feel like a #1

Delivering you some moments of sunshine

Knowing that someone is there

Through joy or despair

Holding up a candle or a torch

A lighthouse when the waves are out of control

Being in this awareness is more than a good feeling

Conquering and soaring the skies

It’s empowering and reassuring

That no matter what the day scripts out

Someone is there in the trenches with you

That always makes me smile

Have a good day!

#MondayThoughts: Well of Support

“My support system is simple – people and time. The miracle of other people in your life.”

– Kiki Smith


We all need support at times. Even if we cannot be there physically to offer support we can still give encouraging words, thoughts, prayers, just let that person know you are with them in their time of need or to support them in their efforts as they strive for their goals and reach for their dreams. Technology has made it possible to communicate in many forms.

Sincere support is solid support and it can go a long way into making someone’s day.

Stay inspired and keep rising.

#MondayThoughts: I’ve Got Your Back

Isn’t it an amazing feeling to know you have people in your life that have your back? They stand with you through thick and thin and are not afraid to show you some tough love when needed.

It could be a family member or members, friends, co-workers or just that special someone in your life who delivers a daily dose of feel good to let you know they are there for you. Let’s face it, we are living in some very harsh times. We have all experienced our fair share of days when it feels like the life has been sucked out of you, or stress and pressure are relentlessly squeezing you mentally and spiritually. Health issues reminding you of your mortality. We have all been there.

On these occasion, hasn’t there been someone who has either said or did something that has given us the lift we needed to stay hopeful (no matter how feint). That unconditional support that spoke volumes in saying “I’m going to help you get through this and you will get through this.” No one is an island unless they choose to float alone.

Isn’t it wonderful to know that someone has got your back?

Stay inspired and keep rising.

#MondayThoughts: Unseen Support

I live in the faith that there is a Presence and Power greater than I am that nurtures and supports me in ways I could not even imagine. I know that this Presence is All knowing and All Power and is Always right where I am

– Ernest Holmes

There are those who believe in you and those who are skeptical. There are even those who discourage you (intentionally or unintentionally). The bigger question is do you believe in you?

All the encouraging, inspiring an hopeful words are meaningless unless you believe in you. They bolster your innerbeing an efforts when you believe in you.

People can hear what you say and see what you do, but they cannot see the depth of your sincerity. There is nothing you can do about this. Always maintain your sincerity and let others believe what they will (which they will do anyway).

I believe in me. No matter how isolated you may feel in your thoughts and hopes, never stop believing in you. I trust in an ever present God an in His love and goodness. I trust in those who support and believe in me. Thank all who doubt and are skeptical because they don’t take away from who you are and what you believe unless you allow them to.

Do you believe in you?

Stay inspired and keep rising.

Full Embrace

I thought You could use a hug

Right here in this very moment

Outside of space and time

Take a deep breath and release

Locked this firmly in your heart

I will always be here


And wherever I must be

For You

Embracing You fully

The Light Is Always On For You

It will get cloudy

It will get dark

But never to cloudy or dark for me

To hold up a light and have it shine as bright as can be

In your direction

Never turning my back, only having your back

Life can be good and we know it can take one of those hard turns

Be assured that my head will never be up my ass thinking everything is rosey

Always here

Always, for you

In Your Time of Need


Always here

For every scrape or cut

Seen and unseen

For every nick and scratch

Seen and unseen

For every pain that tears at your heart

And stretches your soul

You only need to open my heart and find what you need

Always here

I am

For You

Simply Present

Image result for supportive images

Did you notice?

Did you know?

Totally invisible

It’s all good though

Most people don’t

The ones that really matter do

They don’t even need clues

God put them there for a reason

They are not fair weather or seasonal

They are simply present, always

As is God, always

#InternationalWomensDay2018 – Stand Up

Image result for men are from earth, women are from earth

Women you were encouraged to stand up

Men take a seat

Show some respect because respect is due

You know women are too, human beings


Do not degrade them

Devalue their essence

Treat them as a dish to be served

But reverence their presence


Women stay inspired

Keep striving for equality

Keep your voices raised

Despite the degree of difficulty


#MeToo, #Time’sUp, #PressForProgress

All empowering hashtags

Don’t allow these to become flashbacks, throwbacks

Or just things of the past


Just one day a year

We have got to do better than that

You should be respected and appreciated daily

A solid truth and a solid fact
