A million feelings

A thousand thoughts

Never-ending memories

One sweet rose

Conveyor of Words

No matter what life’s circumstances may bring, we have a choice of how we will act and react. As for me, I’ve come to believe that positivity can be a very powerful conveyor during life’s struggles. Through The View From My Window, I try to convey that positive words and a positive perspective are important in everyday life.

The magic of words can do more than just define a meaning. Our words can be the most inspiring form of communication or the most damaging. They have the power to create and motivate. And I believe we have a responsibility over the words we speak.

With that being said, I am asking for your support by ‘following’ and ‘sharing’ my podcast, which is the voice behind my blog. I’m still new to this type of platform so you would be helping me grow and expand in many areas. 

I started this podcast last year and took a break to further other endeavors, but my heart speaks to me that I should continue this effort to see where it will take me. 

The View From My Window Podcast (Please click the link)


is to publish an episode at least once a week. I’ve already posted ten episodes which stem from my blog in some way. The topics will hopefully get better as I go. And I hope to go “live” and chat with others to share a common ground with others.


I have a passion to express my thoughts through words whether it’s to entertain, educate, inform, or just chat. But most importantly, to connect with others. To move and be moved. To share and to listen. To get real with myself and others.

I hope you will join me in this effort. I truly need your guidance and support. I’m all ears and using you as my soundboard.

Lots of Love,

I’m Thankful For…

Hello My Friends and Fellow Bloggers,

It’s been a while since I posted a Thankful Thursday and I have much to be thankful for.

These days, I find myself being thankful for the small things we often take for granted. You know…the food in the frig, the car in the driveway, a safe neighborhood to live, AND  YES….may I add, a much-needed day off. It’s Thursday. I’m not working today and I am thankful.

I am also thankful for all the readers, followers and supporters of my little view of the world. When I first thought of starting this blog, the idea was to bring a passion of mine back to life. My passion for writing. From the moment I hit publish on my very first post, I never dreamed I would be this thankful for such an opportunity to share my thoughts with others.

I am extremely thankful for my blogging community.

I am inspired by you every day.”

I recently started a new page which is called “Laura’s Link-Up.” With each post, you are asked to share your thoughts and a link to your blog to share within the blogosphere. I am truly thankful for all who participated.
