Welcome To My Colorful World!

Welcome to my colorful world. I am a happy (most of the time!) wife, mom, MeMaw, artist, and art teacher. I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I also love to create, cook, nest, decorate, entertain family and friends, laugh, collect vintage stuff, snuggle my cats and dog, play outdoors, and so much more! In addition to all this, I also publish an online magazine with my dear friend, called Mermaids of the Lake. Oh, and I love a big cup of coffee with cream, a dry martini, red wine, blingy jewelry, pink lipstick, blue fingernail polish. I love color! Beautiful colors inspire, motivate, and move me!!! What's my favorite color? I can't choose. I love them all! Yellow, pink, red, turquoise, blue, purple, orange, green and every variation in between!

Colorful Quotes: It's all About Your Attitude!

It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which,
more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome.
~William James

When I was a teenager my dad used to say, "Deborah Lynn, adjust your attitude!" Boy, did I get tired of hearing that! Ha! Dad was right though, and as I grew up a bit I soon realized that my attitude was one thing in life that I did, indeed have control of. This way of thinking has served me well. As I look back on my life now, realizing that I have lived for 30-some years with a chronic illness, (and didn't really know it) I know that a positive attitude and my Faith in God has helped me to have a good quality of life and lots of JOY, despite physical pain, exhaustion, and confusion due to illness and to regular life stuff! Plus, my attitude right now- today is one of HOPE and FAITH in a full recovery and healing! Yay for a positive attitude!

If you have a dream, don’t just sit there.
Gather courage to believe that you can succeed
 and leave no stone unturned to make it a reality.

If you are distressed by anything external,
the pain is not due to the thing itself,
but to your estimate of it;
and this you have the power
to revoke at any moment.
~Marcus Aurelius
