Finding Your Spark: The Only Way Out Of Anything Is Through


I decided to start the "Finding Your Spark" series to shine a light on different types of people who are following various paths – their OWN paths, whatever those may be. The whole idea is that there's no single way to live life and a person doesn't have to be "famous" to inspire others. Whether their circumstances were a choice or not, these individuals have found what inspires them, motivates them, makes them happy. And they've run with it.

"Small Sacrifices: A True Story of Passion and Murder"
by Ann Rule
"Small Sacrifices" is the true story of Diane Downs, mother of three. One night, Diane arrives at a hospital with her three kids in the car – one dead and two in critical condition – claiming she was stopped on the road by a man who then shot all four of them.

And now, 26.

Another year older, another year wiser.

In Need Of A Change | Sunday Shares


Good morning, friends. I'm writing this from bed Sunday morning before I head off to brunch with my family. I'm wishing I had gotten up earlier to work up more of an appetite because the menu for this place looks insane, but I'll probably still eat enough for two people anyway.

I missed a Wednesday posting day again two weeks back and found my mind wandering again to, What if I stopped blogging? I thought about this last year too, around this same time of year. Must be something in the air.
