NO PLACE LIKE HOME 

It doesn't matter what they say, I tell you, there's no place like home! Now when I say that I mean theres nothing like a Mother's or Father's love, if they were your main source of your umbilical cord connection. In other words; I'm speaking of who ever was responsible for nurturing you in love in any type of maternal or paternal kind of way. 

Funny, for several months now, I've been feeling like I needed to be in the arms of my mother. It was such an over whelming feeling that I just couldn't seem to shake and I even found myself waking up in the night and sitting on my couch with the longing of just needing to lay eyes on her, even though I speak to her every other day. 

Well, I tell you...the Universe has it's way of giving you what you're longing for in some way, form, or fashion.  Here I am on St. Patrick's Day in the presence of my Mom.

As an only child, I grew up being a very independent woman and so, I said that to say that I also moved away from home at a the very early age of 18. With that I also started to travel quite a bit and so being away from my Mom and sometimes not seeing her for several years was not foreign to me. 

So fast forward back to this feeling of needing to see my mother, I learned that she too was longing to see me.  The problem is, neither one of us made it clear on how we wanted to see one another to the Universe and as God would have it, my Mom ended up in the hospital having emergency surgery.  That's not how we wanted to have to get together, but that is what brought us together again.  

I'm grateful that my Mom is a warrior and she has bounced back as if nothing has happened once again.  She did the same thing when the good Lord helped her to defeat cancer 11 years ago.  We are both happy that our longing to see one another came to pass and we have some time to genuinely love on one another and to treasure the moment. 

We want to say THANK YOU to everyone that has been instrumental in her speedy recovery.  We Love You! Hugs

THE BIRDHOUSE 

I love watching birds, always have since I can remember.  I bought this tiny little birdhouse from a cute couple in Las Vegas about two years ago at a flea market.  While I was standing there chatting with them I learned that the husband built all of these wonderful birdhouses by hand, and the one I had chosen in particular was special because the roof of the birdhouse came from an old barn in Connecticut and the wood was more than 50 years old.  

Not only that; this couple had lost their daughter and she was an avid believer in helping the shelter for homeless children.  So they started a foundation in her name, and by selling items that they mainly made by hand since he could build these incredible birdhouse's and his wife could knit and sew, all of the monies made at the market, they would go and buy brand new tennis shoes for the homeless children in the shelter.   

What really stayed in my mind was that, these children (the majority) were homeless because their parents had left them behind after gambling in the casino and loosing all their money.  I just couldn't imagine that being legal to happen, but it is.   I didn't mean to take the story there, but that is what remained in my mind.   

So Happy Earth Day, and remember that the making of this little birdhouse to give birds shelter, was also used to collect monies to give to the homeless children that are being cared for in these shelters.   Hugs

#SUNDAY SPOTLIGHT 

Starting today I've decided to put someone I know in the spotlight that has come across my path. 

Meet Andreea Nicky of Vittorio, Veneto Italy.  Last summer while on my summer tour, I was at the market which is held on Monday's in Vittorio Veneto.  I always arrive when the market is just about over.  So to get to the story...I'm at the vegetable and fruit stand and I'm asking for strawberries, bananas, pineapple, etc... I notice a young girl off to the side (Andreea Nicky) purchasing some apples and a few other items.  I'm laughing and talking with the guy because he's always trying to sell me much more than I can eat or carry.  

Well, I finish paying for my items and as I turn around I see that very same young lady (Andreea Nicky) standing near the side walk.  The dialogue: Her: Are you this person in this photo?( and she shows me her telephone).  Me: (I'm startled because the photo is in fact of me) Lol. Yes!! It's me I say, Her:  I thought that was you when I heard your voice at the fruit stand, I've been looking for you for years since the time I heard you sing here in Vittorio Veneto in the square about 5-6 years ago.  Me:  Oh my God! that's incredible after all these years you recognize me.  Her:  When I heard your voice and looked at you I said to myself "it has to be her"  Me:  So you've been waiting all this time for me to finish shopping to ask me that question?  Her:  Yes, and I even made a purchase so I wouldn't seem suspicious. (We both laugh)  Me:  Wow, this is amazing, (we take a photo together with both of our phones)  Her:  I'm one of your biggest fans and I just love your music, your voice, I can't believe I'm actually seeing you.  Me:  It really is amazing, please let's stay in touch on social media and I have new music out that you may like.  Her:  I will, I'm so happy to have found you again.So Andreea I just want to say thank you for being a follower and supporter of my music and I want you to know I don't take it lightly.  I wish you much success in all that you do. Hugs
