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.

every once in awhile, you see something that you know was meant to be seen. sorry if that doesn't make sense, but hang with me for a minute and it'll (hopefully) all come togetrher.

the pastor of the church i attend, lost his mother a few years ago. and, for anyone that's lost their mom, you  know that mother's day can be tough.  as our minister reminenced from the pulpit about his mother's potato salad, a large yellow butterfly floated back and forth across the window. you know what they say about butterflies... and with the fact that it was yellow (like potato salad), i took it as a sign that his mom was letting him know she was there.

so, i made a mental note to tell him about it after the sermon. and while during the sermon when he mentioned sitting on his mother's lap & that same butterfly appeared again... just let me tell ya, goosebumps!

you see, the minister couldn't see the window because he faces the congregation. but from where i sit, the window is straight ahead, allowing me full view of the beauty that appears on the outside. and on this day, my preacher's mother appeared not once, but twice as a delicate butterfly.

i could hardly wait til the preachin' was over because i was so excited about the butterfly. when i finally had the chance to tell him, his eyes filled with tears. for me, it was another goosebump moment.

i believe.

have you ever received a sign like that? not a "here's your sign" kind of moment but, a sign that someone was somehow letting you know that they were there.

My Mom loved cardinals and every time I fill myself missing her a cardinal appears and when my Dad lived with us a cardinal was seen everyday letting me know I was doing a great job taking care of my Dad...When I go to visit them at the cemetery and I talk to them acorns fall on me to let me know they are there with me... :-(
