1.Thank the blogger who gave you the award.

As a new blogger I am very touched that anyone would nominate me as an inspiring blogger.  So my heart is overflowing with gratitude to Lil Red Writing Hood.  I appreciate the time you spend to read my words and find inspiration from them.  A great part of my inspiration and desire to continue to blog is watching other’s blog so truthfully.  I have felt a kindred spirit with many bloggers and the words of Lil Red Writing Hood and others resonate within me.

2. Tell 7 things about you that have not come up in your blog.

  • I have spent over 30 years in healthcare as a nurse in many capacities.  I have had the great honor of holding and helping children and adults through illness and as they have transition from this plane to the next.  I loved many of my roles and have felt blessed to have these experiences.
  • I now have a Medical Hypnosis Practice where I work with people who seek to align with their higher self for mind body healing.  You can check out my website at www.healthempowerment.me
  • My first book is coming out later this month. “Of Musk and Lilac: A dog’s tale.”  Is a short story that will be sold to raise funds for an animal non-profit called Quessa’s Gift.  This non-profit will support dog rescues and pay for the medical and behavioral rehab of abused dogs.
  • I am an Animal lover!  My first dog was a golden retriever named, Guinness.  He lived a very blessed life until he was 13 years of age.  My last dog Quessa, was rescued after living in an abusive home.  She had fear aggression and after 5 years I put her down after an unprovoked attack.  I loved her deeply and the book and non-profit will be a demonstration of the pure beauty and love of her spirit.
  • I am presently writing a murder mystery and have a medical murder mystery in the works.
  • I love to ride motorcycles.  While I am now in between bikes I look forward to getting my next bike.  My favorite color for my bike is purple.
  • I love my Garden and Pond.  It is a wonderful place to meditate and to enjoy life and to just relax.

Masai Mara Lion

“Embracing the Wind” – Masai Mara, Kenya – David Lloyd – Featured Photographer

Whether astrological or a beast

The Lion is the King at the royal feast.

The ruler of the animal world.

The leader with pride that extends

Beyond the African plains.

So majestic with a golden mane

So strong is his physical frame.

The Lion an earthly ruler

Created with the Spirit of God

Is the father of his animal tribe.

When he roars the elephants

And gazelles stop to listen.

To the words of the Animal Lord.

With Pride he leads

With knowing he sees

The kingdom of God at his feet.

With his head held high

He inhales deep

Taking in the scent of the winds

That carries the message of his divinity.

He is regal and majestic in his ways

He is the King of the animal land

And the ruler of the milky-way.
