My beautiful Grandaughter!

I have been a terrible blogger since before we moved to Houston and after. 
In August my daughter gave birth to her third child, my precious little granddaughter ABIGAIL!
Its so much fun having a grandaughter! Shes beautiful and perfect in every way. Whats amazing is her eye color, They are green like her mothers, and light brown like mine. She is a good baby and is happy most of the time. She has dark hair and fair skin. I love her so much.
She reminds me of her mother in some ways and brings back all those wonderful feelings of being amother the first time. Of course her brothers are nuts about her. Speaking of them
here is a portrait I took of them one day after Church.  
They are pretty special to me too!
We are still remodeling our Lake home, we have lots done and weve done a lot of work ourselves! Ill be posting photos soon!
Thanks for visiting my blog, I hope to hear from you! my email is Pdixie11@gmail.com  
Thanks! Hugs and Gods Blessings,
Dixie

You can if you just "FIND A WAY" .

Wow Today I watched Super Soul Sunday on Own channel. It was about Diane Nyad, the 60 year old female swimmer who swam from Cuba to Florida. I am just blown away at her will power, her belief in herself, the dream and the tenacity.
I taped both on my DVR, so I can watch and rewatch whenever I stop beleiving in myself.

Ive watched our son go from an overweight sad young boy into a state, National and World Champion Power lifter.  All the while keeping up his grades in high school and college.

I know the human spirit is strong. I know that people can do anything if they just reach down deep inside and "FIND A WAY". as Diane Nyad said many times.
Oprah always blows my mind with her guests.
Ive been a fan of her show for 26 years.

Food for thought.
Good stuff.
I live on a lake and i think about how hard it would be just to swim across the penisula part.

Im inspired today. 
Love Super Soul Sunday.

Thanksgiving a time for reflection.

I love Thanksgiving. It's a time to reflect, to look back on the year and to be in a state of gratitude. I recently attended an Anthony Robbins seminar and something I learned was  you cannot be upset if you are in a state if gratitude. It's impossible.  What makes you feel grateful? God? Family? Your pets? Your home? The health of a loved one who battled a disease and won?  The little things? A flower garden? A second chance ? Look wound, reflect instead of dwelling on things out of your control , instead focus on the things you're grateful for. You'll feel a shift, a lightness.   happy Thanksgiving y'all.
