Stuff that matters~family, friends, faith.

Stuff that don’t~designer stuff, the latest, coolest anything. Who decides that anyway?

Favorites~a good song, a good drink, a good back rub.

Totally unfavorites~arrogance & hatred, liars and "dig me's", people that pee on the seat. I hate that!

About work~
I am so very fortunate to work in radio, and I work with some really great people. Who wouldn’t love playin’ music and talkin’ all day for a livin’?

When it comes to music, for me it’s really all about the song. Bluegrass, old time gospel and country. Stuff by Hank, Merle, Patsy and Willie. I dig Johnny Cash and Radney Foster, Asleep at the Wheel, Keith Urban and Lee Ann Womack, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church and Possum Holler.

Music has been a part of my life since I was a little girl and, I have my beautiful parents to thank for that. I hope the pure, emotionally raw joy I get out of singing, writing and performing is obvious.

There’s nothing like sitting outside in the early morning, on a peachy summer day, listening to the birds sing, and takin’ in the sweet summer smell of lilac, honeysuckle and wisteria.

There’s nothin’ like the hugs I get from my kids.

Because nothing, nothing means more to me than the people I love. 

I sincerely hope that I’m an inspiration and a blessing to others. So many have been that for me.

Be an organ donor
Be enthusiastic.
Be compassionate.
Be the difference.

a child is a gift

no matter what...

please do not give up on them. some kids present a huge challenge for those around them. they may not listen or sit still. they might not be able to focus on one thing for any length of time. it's probably pretty chaotic for you and, for those looking in from the outside but, i wonder how much chaos the child feels? especially, when someone throws their hands in the air and says, "i can't do this anymore", or "please don't bring your child to summer camp, they're too disruptive", or well, you get the picture.

if as adults, we give up on helping a child reach their full potential, then (and this is only my opinion), we have no right to complain if that child ends up in a prison funded by our tax dollars. if we have ever said that a child will not amount to anything, then we are part of the problem. if we fail to give a child our absolute best, then we are part of the problem. if the well-behaved kid is not encouraged to interact with the not so well-behaved one's, we are contributing to the selfish neglect of their future.

because if we're not responsible, who is? if we give up because a kid is too much trouble, because he or she is just not worth the extra effort, then we are not doing our part to make someone's life a little better. we all need hope. even the kid... especially the kid that might appear hopeless. 

every child is a gift. don't give up on them. no matter what.

so true, and the problem is people don't realize it is a gift from GOD, and that should mean the most, that you should cherish that gift and nurture it.
