This leads me to my angel dust: Let's not get discouraged because we can't give a laptop to every student in a school like Oprah. Give what you can cause everything counts to those that have less than yourself!

This leads me to my angel dust: We must learn to take care of ourselves before we take care of others.

This leads me to my angel dust: I'd rather be bald headed and "splint end" free than keep them around and get upset everytime they show up and show out!

This leads me to my angel dust: Summer is the great equalizer. It's the season where we all turn the same color......sun kissed brown! So let's be sure to give summer some extra love this year :))

I remember like it was yesterday. I had to be in 5th or 6th grade when the news called for snow. We coudn't be happier! There was already snow on the ground so we just KNEW we weren't gonna have school the next day. (Our confidence came from the fact that we lived in a county that was partially rural and country roads were horrible whenever it snowed.) That being said my best friend, another next door neighbor, my little brother and myself decided to "carpe diem" or better yet....Seize the snow! We stayed out all night having snow ball fights, making snow angels, and then coming inside and hanging out. We had a BLAST! Being that we played to our hearts content we were tuckered out and finally went to bed. Now I can't remember if we actually woke up or not, but to our dismay we had school the next day. Uhm, needless to say we didn't make it to school. LMAO. My mom cut us a little slack and we didn't get in trouble because she knew we really thought we were gonna have a snow day. (plus she knew the nerd in me hated missing school, so she knew our late night play wasn't an intentional excuse to miss school). Well, looks like not a whole lot has changed cause there's nothing better than a good snow day!!
This leads to my angel dust: Snow brings out the inner kid in every one.......it's kinda like childhood....so go play in it before it slowly melts away and disappears.....

Today's angel dust: Be thankful for all things big and small. (Could you imagine how little rest I would have gotten today if my remote control didn't work?! That's all I'm saying.) Be thankful!

As little girls we are taught that we are princesses. The world around us is magical and anything we can dream up can become true! As we grow older we lose varying degrees of our "princessness". We kiss frogs, to find out they aren't the prince, but some still stay as if they wait long enough that frog will turn into a prince....WRONG! We allow other men (we date) to belittle us into a role of "baby momma". We settle for men with a gang of seeds floating around that they take care of some of the time. Ladies, please remember with every birthday, birthday cake, and birthday candle you blow out that the only reason to give up your "princessness" is for "queendom"
This leads me to my angel dust: If someone handed you a bar of soap, told you to eat it cause it taste like candy you would laugh so why allow a man to show up with a bag of trash, tell you it's gold amd you believe him?!

I just wish life had a "dashboard"! I think if this was the case my dashboard lights would have burned out in my 20's! My life dashboard would've flashed things like check heart. Whoo buddy would that have saved me from those delightfully fun guys that were charming, but far from Prince Charming! How about that check brain light. That would have saved me from the spur of the moment decisions like moving in with a coworker who turned out to be a jealous, mean, thundercat! (LOL) Really guys, it's true. She was bitter cause before we met she hit on my then love interest and he wasn't interested. As if that wasn't enough she liked my best guy friend and he was NOT having it. Guess her check brain light should have been going off too cause that's some dumb moves. With all that being said, my check attitude light would have gone off less frequently but caused the most alarm when it did. Boy did some folks get a piece of my mind......Uh, and they still do! lol. This makes me think back to my retail days. "No ma'am, I will not return your worn outfit" and of course they'd say, "Well can I speak to the manager?" I'd then say, "Sure. I'm the manager and I'm not taking back this outfit. It has body glitter on it" Yeah, so what sheisty people didn't like me. (hmmmm I think that still remains true!) Bottom line life doesn't have a dashboard so we have to make that much more effort to listen to our "insides" and do what's right for our soul.
This leads to my angel dust: As life adds mileage to our mind, body and spirit we must remember to always replenish (add fuel), protect ourselves (seatbelt light), and do what's best for us (check engine light)

This leads to me to the angel dust: My four year old nephew said to me the other day "You bought me that letter game at my daddy's house didn't you?" I said, "Yeah" He then said, "I HATE letters" I replied, "You wanna learn how to read don't you?" He said "Yeah" I said "Well, then you need to learn to like letters" (let me also add part of his upset was the fact I enforced his bedtime and he wanted to stay up with the big kids) Anywho, the point is this... read to the kids in your life. They may not understand the benefits at the time, but once they grow up they'll appreciate your effort :)

So the angel dust is this: Many may tell you that you're too old, too young, too whatever to bring your dreams to life and to that you say you're too dumb to know any better :))

It would only be proper to leave you with this angel dust: Listening to Shaun's sermon he asked, "What is it that you actually hope for?" So I pose the same question to you. I can only hope this sparks something in you like it did me!

I pulled up to my house to park and couldn't help but notice this discarded Christmas Tree. As if I didn't already know the holiday season was over, it was real now! This morning when I woke up things felt different. Oh yeah, this was my last day as a "free" woman. Work starts tomorrow. (long sigh) Almost suddenly I felt sick to my stomach. I brushed it off thinking the granola and cranberry juice I had for breakfast was just too healthy for my system. So I took a nap. During my nap I had a dream....a nightmare actually. It was about work. It was at this very moment that it became so real to me..... I NEED a new job. Like the Christmas holiday season, my time at my current job needs to end! It's a process though. It is for this reason that I ask for extra prayers in my future endeavors. This year I'm committed to keeping me happy!
And that brings me to my angel dust: God grant me the courage not to give up what I think is right even though I think it is hopeless. ~Chester W. Nimitz

It is thought that natural pearls form under a set of accidental conditions when a parasite enters a mollusk and settles inside the shell. The mollusk, being irritated by the intruder, forms a pearl sac of external mantle tissue cells and secretes chemicals to cover the irritant. This secretion process is repeated many times, thus producing a pearl. The fragile rim of the shell is exposed and is prone to damage and injury. Crabs, other predators and parasites may produce traumatic attacks and cause injuries in which some external mantle tissue cells are disconnected from their layer.
That's enough with the science lesson. The point is this: most of us arrived here due to some kind of accident. (Do people really "plan" pregnancies now a days?!) We've all had that one "thing" happen in childhood that swiped a little of our innocence that always stayed with us. Whether daily or sporadically that "thing" has the starring role in our flashbacks when a similar situation arises. As if that isn't enough new "predators", whether it be mean girls, cheating lovers, lying friends, etc, attempt to do damage to your spirit. This isn't a fairy tale so although you put up a good fight you don't always win. More scars occur to your mind, body, or spirit but you're ok. I'm here to tell you to hold on and hold tight. What they know that you might not realize is there's something beautiful inside you. That something is rare and priceless. You are a pearl!
So let me leave you with this bit of angel dust: "Errors like straws upon the surface flow: Who would search for pearls must dive below"
