Short and to The Point

While at the playground with my grandchildren, I couldn’t help but think of all the negative in this world they are surrounded by. I snapped this shot of my youngest grandson who is 17 months and wonder what will it be like for him and his brother in the next five, ten or fifteen years from now. 

It is imperative for adults, that includes me and you…to be more involved with the youth of today. When naked truths are exposed and it takes the courage of young people to step up, something is terribly wrong in our culture. Those who are not conversant in the lives of our children should not be surprised as to what they may do. Those who set poor examples of behavior for our children need to stop. Children live and breathe by our behavior. Our children are always watching. Our children are always listening. 

Children are valuable. Even though they are unfinished in life,

they still make our society a whole.

Please share your thoughts. Let’s talk…

Plain and Simple is always better....

Plain and Simple is sometimes better….

Hey Guys,

         Just taking a moment to see what’s up? I feel like I’m the only one doing all the talking and right now, I’m getting a little tired of hearing myself. A fellow blogger, Shanice Nicole,  over at has inspired me to step out of the box and express myself. I appreciate her blog, her encouragement and…even though we have never met, I appreciate her! When you get a chance, check her out.

          If you know me and have been following me on Face Book or through this blog, you know what’s been on my heart these past few weeks. I am going through many transitions and I want to thank all of you who have made a difference in my life. You are appreciated! If you don’t know me, I am always open for new, LET’S TALK!

         This is our moment to connect! I will say a few things about me and then it’s your turn.

1. I love music! Music makes me happy.  2. I can’t swim and probably never will and I’m ok with that.  3. I have a fear of driving on the interstate that has lots and lots of cars surrounding me, especially semi-trucks. This comes from an incident that occurred several years ago and haven’t gained the courage to get back in that driver’s seat in the middle of all that traffic.  4. I dislike soggy cereal.  5. I am working on my bucket-list and skydiving is on the list. (I KNOW: How can I possibly go skydiving when I can’t even feel safe driving on the interstate? Go figure..)  🙂  6. I recently became a NANA for the first time and I’m here to say, “There’s nothing like it!”  7. My family and God are the most important part of my life.

Now…It’s your turn. If you have anything in common with me…let me know. If you have advice, give it! If you have something to say, please share it with me. Tell me something…anything…whatever is on your mind.  I want to hear your voice. What you have to say matters to me. LET’S TALK!

                                                   Simply,  Laura
