Happy New Year – 2014!

January 1, 2014

Happy New Year Mintdom!

I am so excited for the New Year. I know that 2014 is going to be a GREAT year – maybe one of the BEST years EVER! For the second year in a row, I have a word for the year. My 2014 word is Legacy. I want to leave a good legacy for my family, friends and community. My focus for the year in everything that I do in my spiritual, family, financial, business and personal life will have to do with my legacy. Now that theme should keep me on the straight and narrow. LOL

One of these goals is to have a Clean House – Mintdom Clean. I do not mean that I am just going to clean my house. I mean that I am cleaning and organizing my life. I want to have a clean house emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually and have my house and car clean too! Of course, my ultimate goal in my life is to lead a healthy lifestyle and I will be posting progress reports often. I am never giving up on this goal.

Lastly, one of my goals for the year is to complete writing my first book. I am very excited about it. I have some good plans to get me unstuck. I will let you all know. . I should have a very busy year this year!

Of course, I would be remiss in not sharing my exciting news that my oldest daughter is expecting a little girl in March! My youngest daughter and I will be heading to North Carolina as soon as we hear that she is in labor. Whoo hoo!

Thank you all for being in my life and for all the love and encouragement that you guys so generously give to me. I am grateful to each one of you. I hope this year bring you and yours much good health, happiness and success.

AffirMINTion: I love a Mintdom Clean House and I will have one in 2014!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!

A Celebration of Life!

 April 27, 2013

Good morning, Mintdom,

On Friday, I attended a celebration of life for a wonderful woman whose life ended too soon. I met Berty only once; however, I knew of her through her son and my daughter. She was a beautiful woman who lived her life to the fullest. The world lost some of its grace when she left. 

With the huge room filled to capacity, it is obvious that many people loved Berty; it showed in her friends that were able to speak at her life-celebration. Although her family and friends will always miss her, my prayer is that the many fond memories will ease the pain of losing her. 

My prayer for all of us is that we do not put off that phone call, lunch or note to our loved ones and that we let our friends and family know how much we love them through our words and deeds each day. 

AffirMINTion: I express my love to my family and friends each day.

 This is Berty and Al with a blanket that she received during one of the times that she was in the hospital. I love the embellishment. It looks like Berty – bright, cheery, warm embellished and happy!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to. 

What are you waiting for? 

Life is good!

Hello Mintdom :)

April 5, 2013

Good morning, Mintdom

I do not normally play April Fools tricks; however, this year I decided to try it and honestly, I almost think that the joke was on me, as many of my awesome readers thought that I was serious because did not scroll down to the bottom of the post to see this:

april fools 2013

 

 

 

 

 

 

The joke might be on me because I might have lost some of my readers. The good news is that I found out very early in the day how much Mintdom meant to many of you and even more so, I felt the love of many of my friends and family members. I am grateful to say the least. It is truly a gift to know feel that love – thank you sincerely.

On a sadder note, a little over a week ago, the world lost a wonderful, larger than life person, much too soon and way too young. This evening and tomorrow, his family and friends will gather to celebrate his life and mourn his death at age 64. We will certainly miss your ready smile and hearty laugh, Captain.

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”

AffirMINTion: I treasure memories of family and friends

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for? (We never know how much time any of us have)

Life is good!

Count Your Assets

March 11, 2013

Good morning Mintdom

I have the BEST, most generous family and friends. I am so grateful for all who helped me celebrate my 60th birthday. You all or as some of you say, Y’all made me feel so very special. I spent so much of the weekend trying to come up with the words to say thank you. No words seem adequate. If I go along with Robert Quillen’s theory, and my family and friends are my assets, than my profit is sky-high! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. ::::whispering:::: and I got a Coach bag:::::

“If you count all your assets, you always show a profit.” – Robert Quillen

Speaking of birthdays, I want to wish one of my favorite assets, my friend Ben Heisler a very happy birthday. Ben is one of the smartest, funniest, hardest worker, most loyal, friends that I get to call my friend. Happy birthday, stalker… err friend – I hope you have an awesome day!

AffirMINTions: I am 60 and loving it!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!

The Year of Fabulosity!

March 4, 2013

Good morning Mintdom!

Please indulge me for a few minutes this morning. I am bursting at the seams. I had a milestone birthday on Friday. I turned 60 years old – err 60 years young that is. I had a fabulous weekend of celebrating with family and friends. I have so many blessings and so much love in my life. It started with my sister, Nancy (well, it actually started in Fort Campbell, KY with my dad and mom) and ended with Nancy and my kids, grandchildren and my brother and his family at my favorite restaurant. I had awesome Facebook messages. I read them all and I am still working on thanking you all for them. I had phone calls, e-mails, visits, outings, hugs and a ton of love.  I have to be one of the wealthiest people on this earth. Thank you so much, I am grateful for each one of you.

I have never minded birthdays in the past. This year was the exception. I was not in the best frame of mind during the weeks leading up to my birthday. I was a little grumbly about turning that number; however, I now believe that this is the year of Fabulosity! I am SO looking forward to all of the fabulous opportunities (and discounts LOL) that I will have this year. This is just my first 60 years and I am looking forward to my next 60 years!

Here are a few of the remnants of my fabulous birthday weekend! Thanks for indulging me. I will get back to my fabulous regular life now (Nancy).

Appreciate Life, Love and MoMINTS

February 11, 2013

Good morning Mintdom!

Last night I received an e-mail about an amazing man. His name is Ben Witter billed as the Tiger Woods of Trick Shots! His trick shots are incredible; however, the best thing about him is that he is inspiring! You can judge for yourself though. Click on this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZCtbRDlwzU to be inspired! Ben Witter sure knows how to make lemonade out of lemons.

On a personal note and sort of on the same subject, I have a friend whose husband is dealing with a serious cancer. Their attitude astounds me. Although I imagine that, my friend has had her moMINTS; she comes to the office and is cheerful and upbeat yet does not avoid the subject. I admire her so much and this is a good reminder for me to cherish my loved ones and life in general.

I am so grateful to all of you that read my posts. I know some of you very well and some not as well as I would like. I DO appreciate you and value ALL of your responses. To my family and friends: I love you more than I can put into words. Thank you for all of your love.

Today, make sure you tell someone how much you love and value him or her

AffirMINTion: I let my loved ones know how much I love them.

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!

My mom says… life is precious even ordinary moMINTS… and I LIKE IT!
