3 Reasons why I love ANW…

I love American Ninja Warrior…what about you? A few years ago I saw that it was recorded on my friends DVR and was like, “Do you really watch that?”

Her response was, “Yes, you should try it.”  Now, I have to prequalify my lack of enthusiam with her suggestion.  For the most part our TV viewing only agrees like 50% of the time.  So I said, “Yeah, ok.”

He said “And Wear RED”

IMG_1692Red, oh I don’t know if I can!  See, I am getting ready to do my first video in a few weeks and I meet with the gentlemen that will be doing the recording this past Saturday.

As we were closing the meeting, he said with a voice of finality…”And wear RED.”  I responded, “Red, why red?”  He said, “Because it will make you pop.”

Be a Fixer Upper!

Ok, I am certifiably hooked! I absolutely love, love, love HGTV’s show Fixer Upper. Chip and Joanna Gaines take homes that due to neglect, adverse weather or tragedy are houses that you would never ever consider having any possibilities or true value and does the magical “fix up.” Houses to Homes.

They find the properties, do the demolition, rebuild and fortifies where it is broken down, then brings out the hidden beauty that was not seen by others; with out vision.

Keeping company…


Jane & Joady sitting on rockKeeping company is a wonderfully powerful phase. It is a concept of behavior and unconditional love that many times we overlook.  It is different from just company, or even from the concept of companion.

To “Keep Company” means to support with unconditional love supplying anywhere there is a lack.  WOW!

Think about the power in this concept.

Company means to open ones home to welcome visitors to share and spend time with joy.  Keep Company takes this to a different and more powerful place.  Think about when you have used the concept.

Meeting some one or something is full of possibilities. But having an encounter is all about fulfillment!
