“There is something beautiful about a blank canvas, the nothingness of the beginning that is so simple and breathtakingly pure. It’s the paint that changes its meaning and the hand that creates the story. Every piece begins the same, but in the end they are all uniquely different.”
― Piper Payne

I have no bucket list. I prefer to focus on life. I just want to enjoy life every day with those I love. I believe death is not an ending, but a new beginning...more radiant and joyous than anything we may experience here.
~~~~~~~~~~~~

..."For death is but a passing phase of Life;
A change of dress, a disrobing;
A birth into the unborn again;
A commencing where we ended;
A starting where we stopped to rest;
A crossroad of Eternity;
A giving up of something, to possess all things.
The end of the unreal, the beginning of the real;
Not cessation, but continuance;
Not exit, but entrance;
Not destruction, but life;
How wise the plan of death!"...
~ Edwin Liebfreed ~ from "The Song Of The Soul"

ABOUT ME

I am a 63 year old woman born and living in Texas. Probably a "for lifer." I am married (40 years now) and have 2 grown sons. Neither are married, yet, so I have no grandchildren to this point. I live simply, in a small city, with my beloved husband and with the family pets. My sons both work and live here in town at present. One is currently in a relationship. I am blessed to have them so near. I currently own 1 dog, Spencer. He is a rescue animal. I am a college graduate who is employed full-time. I am a Christian, flag-waving, southern, political conservative. I am friendly. I love to laugh and feel shared laughter is a wonderful part of friendship. Comments are welcomed and appreciated as long as they are well-meaning, kind, and respectful to me and to all others who visit here. I do not mind pics being a bit risque', but I prefer a friendly page with NO VULGARITY, NUDITY OR SEXUALLY EXPLICIT IMAGES. I absolutely hate drama and argument, so DO NOT bring it to my page. Please respect these simple guidelines when visiting. Hope we soon become good friends. God Bless you all. ~ Marcia

I am happily married, so not looking for new romance, but the characteristics that I find appealing are: a cheerful disposition, a nice smile, a sense of humor, sincerity, kindness, and respect for God, country, and other people. I appreciate a person of intelligence. I am drawn to the eyes and smile first.

I believe I am a mixture of Scottish, German, Czech, and Native American (Cherokee) heritage.

I love the simple pleasures of life. I love mild sunny days, rainy days, starry nights, the beauty of nature and the fascinating and wonderful creatures that share our planet with us.

My favorite smells are rain, vanilla, and green apple.

My favorite flowers are roses (especially lavender or pink) and daisies.

My favorite colors are pink, lavender, and green.

I love dainty, feminine things; soft, comfortable things; rustic, country things; western, southern things; antique, primitive things; and warm, cuddly things.

I am not a fan of big government, constitutional infringements, disrespect of God, flag, or country. I dislike arrogant people who are unkind, disrespectful, or non-trustworthy. Also, people (male or female) who overestimate either their intellect or their sex appeal.

My personal movie favorites are comedies, biographies, light-hearted action/adventure, musicals, family films, and wildlife documentaries. I do not enjoy most horror films, but find some paranormal studies interesting. I do enjoy ghost stories. My t.v. choices run along the same lines.

I mix it up when it comes to reading material. I enjoy biography, humor, spiritual, inspirational, poetry, mystery, romance, selective westerns, and light fiction. I like cookbooks and books about animals.

My musical tastes are as varied as my reading material. I can appreciate selections from most types of music. However, my least favorites are heavy metal, rap, and hip-hop. Songs that glamorize sex, drugs, and violence are very distasteful to me.

My favorite hobbies are reading, blogging, keeping up this web page, working puzzles, and music. I also love nature, wildlife, fishing, and exploring quaint locations and shops. I also like flea markets and thrift shops.

I am not a high maintenance type of woman. I live simply. However, I AM still a female and enjoy the usual female interests such as shopping, recipes, home decor, jewelry, clothes, etc. I am not into expensive frills and not really into trends. I like soft, feminine, conservative, comfortable.

I do like some sports. I have a particular fondness for watching basketball, but watch some football, baseball, skating, gymnastics, swimming/diving and Winter olympic events. I mostly support my Texas and U.S. teams. I am not a fan of wrestling, boxing, or auto racing. I do not like sports that harm or exploit animals.

that’s the easiest to climb;
the smooth side doesn’t have
anything for you to hang on to.

The beautiful thing about life is that you can always change, grow and get better. You aren’t defined by your past. You aren’t your mistakes.

 
 
 


Find Happiness

Once a group of 50 people were attending a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each attendee one balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
Now these delegates were let into that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon. Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker then began, “This is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness. And this is the purpose of human life…the pursuit of happiness.”
How Can We Be Happy?


Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be (possibly your roommate, neighbor, coworker, longlost friend, lover, or even a complete stranger) but when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.
And sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.
Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. It would be safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.
The people you meet who affect your life, and the success and downfalls you experience help to create who you become. Even the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones. If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious when you open your heart. If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to love and how to open your heart and eyes to things.
Make every day count!!! Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in you. You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets...Enjoy your weekend ...If  weather permits a walk in the woods , golfing, fishing, horseback riding what ever appeals to you but sometimes a change is as good as a rest...Stay safe.... Angel Blessings and Love....
