I totally forgot about this site!  My bad.  Anyway, it's nearly four years later and I've moved to yet another state.  I love my new home state and plan to remain here.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.  I'm very much looking forward to all the wonderful surprises coming my way in 2019.  I have a feeling that a lot of positive things will happen for me this year.  I haven't felt this way in a long time--maybe ever.

Sending lots of love and light!

BE KIND

I haven't been here in a while.  My, how things have changed.  

I've moved to another state and am contemplating higher education to get me out of being a desk jockey for the rest of my life.

Opportunity is knocking.  Excuse me while I answer the door...

It's been quite a while since I've stopped by.  I like the new layout here at lettrs.

I keep my heart open to everything wonderful coming my way and invite more opportunities daily.

I feel my grandma with me and I find comfort in knowing she's a peace now.

Work is good, my car is good, life is GOOD!

I am very grateful for everything and everyone in my life.

All signs point to love on the horizon...and I can't wait!  :)

I have been praying that my Grandma would make her transition peacefully and in her sleep.  I said I'd find a way to be OK with it, even though my heart is broken.  I have been very blessed to have her in my life and I cherish the wonderful memories I have of her.

Rest in peace, my sweet angel.  I love you more than you know!

This may sound shallow, but know that it not.

I got my first paycheck today!  What a weight lifted from my shoulders.

I am very grateful because had I not gotten my job, I'm not sure what I would have done. I was nearly broke!

THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!!  THANK YOU!!!

What would you tell your younger self if you had the chance?

I would tell her that being unique is a blessing, not a curse that some make it out to be.

I would tell her that no amount of food can mend a broken heart.  Talk about it, at great length, if needed.

I would tell her that she doesn't need to worry about pleasing anyone but herself.  It can make you resentful.

I would tell her to keep sketching, painting, creating.  It's a magical outlet for your emotions.

I would tell her that she's perfect just the way she is.

I would tell her to not think that a relationship defines her or completes her.  She's perfectly imperfect and complete as she is.

I would tell her, "I l...

I can feel you.  The thought of you brings tears of joy and anticipation to my eyes.  I'm doing my best to learn the lessons I'm supposed to learn and deal with the emotions I'm supposed to deal with to clear your path to me.  Freeing myself  of all old hurt will help me open my heart to love again.  Brick by brick, the wall I've built is falling down.  With each extraction, the light shines a little bit brighter.  That light, my love, will lead you right into my life at exactly the right time.

Until then...

I talk to my Gram every Sunday.

She has cancer in her neck & it's spreading.

She said she's ready to go.

I'm heartbroken!  :(

Preface to this letter:  I am a plus-size gal.

So, I start my new job on Monday.  I have shopped for office attire for the better part of a week.  Today, my shipment from Kohl's arrives and I am a bit disappointed that the pants are really tight!  They're supposed to be a relaxed fit...

I trek out to see if I can find anything at Target.  I should have known better as I rarely find my size there.  I have to admit that the thought of looking in the maternity section crossed my mind.  Heck, pants with a stretchy belly built in... SIGN ME UP!

I came home with a pair of shoes.

BEING GRATEFUL!

I am grateful for my health, as many are ill.

I am grateful for a home, as many are homeless.

I am grateful for the food in my home, as many are hungry.

I am grateful for my abundance, as many have none.

I am grateful for my friends and family, as many are alone.


I am so grateful to have been blessed with this life.  I promise I won't squander it away anymore.

Many blessings to you all,

My friend is dying of pancreatic cancer.  She's had such a rough life and is only in her 40s.

I wish there were more I could do for her.

It breaks my heart...

Has a song's lyrics ever just struck a chord in your heart?  I have several that do, for different reasons, and the one that is stuck in my head now is Trace Adkins, "Cowboy's Back In Town."  Here they are:

Nobody knows where she goes every other weekend
Monday morning she’s back at work with a smile on her face again
They ask but she don’t tell she’s keeping him to herself

[Chorus:]
He rolls in like a southwest wind hot off of the plains
She needs the love he brings like the desert needed the rain
This high rise life she’s living is beginning to get her down
But it’s all better now cause her cowboys back in town

So far the way things are works for both of them
He’s tried tim...

I need this more than anybody knows...

This may sound crazy, but I'm compiling a list of things to sell.  Things like my bed, my living room furniture (that I just bought), kitchen stuff, purses, wallets...EVERYTHING!!!

I'm kind of starting to freak out because I haven't had a job in about six months, mostly because I needed to detox my last job out of my system.  I've been actively looking for work for the last two months to no avail.

On one hand, it might calm me a bit to have some money coming in, but I really feel like I don't NEED most of this stuff.  As long as I have four walls and a roof, food for my belly, and my laptop (seriously, I couldn't give that up!), I'd be fine.  It would be an adjustment, of course, but I'...

I was just told by my lesbian friend that I was a better lesbian than she--and I'm straight!

She makes me laugh!!!

Matt,

I miss being your girlfriend. I know in my heart that we would have been married if she didn't break us up. You were my first love, and oh, how I loved you!

I'm glad we're friends, but there will always be a part of me that wants more. I'm not "that" girl, but if we're both ever single at the same time...

I wish that dating worked like The Voice. You come out on stage to the prospective candi"dates", who can't see you. You interact with all of them and choose who you believe is the best fit.

That could be kind of cool!
