Products I Love

I have a pinterest account. And although I don’t spend a lot of time there I have found some really cool images. I have put together some boards of things I am interested in, or in things I love. An example of this can be found here: Products I Love.

When I have a product I love – I use every last little tiny bit of it.  I turn the lotion bottle over and let it drain into another container so I don’t waste anything.  I did this with this product that I love:
and to my GREAT SURPRISE I had one months worth of lotion left in that little container!

Another product by the same company, C.O. Bigelow that I love: 
I could take a bath in this yummy body cream.  I use it at night on my face.  It is amazing.

Isn’t is funny, when you love something you use every last drop and don’t waste any of it?  Other products may be just ho-hum – but not the one you love.  And loving something is the best-selling point of any product.

If you are on pinterest you can find me here: Cindy Holman.  I am there like most everyone else on the planet!

What’s your favorite product?  The one you don’t waste?  You get every last drop?  The one you love enough to sell?

 

Have a fun weekend!

 

God Bless

Rewriting The Already Written

I did something the other day I had not done in years.  I attended a book reading at a local bookstore, small and eclectic – in the heart of our quaint downtown.  The event was called “An afternoon with Rod Haynes” local writer – and also a member of the church we attend.  Rod is very interesting and has many fun stories he has penned.  He has written three books and in his time with us he read aloud some sections of each.

But it was in my conversation with him before the event began that captured my attention and has given me many thoughtful moments ever since.  He told me that he was not always able to make sense of things in the past that have happened – so he attempted to create a new fictitious ending to a very real story, to gain perspective and to give closure in either a positive or negative way.  He gave a few examples in his time with us – his way of weaving true events with those that he would have liked to have happened.

Maybe you like me, have attempted to make sense of events in your life.  Maybe you’ve even tried to wrap your mind around “your story” as told by you in a way that really did happen, but instead you end up frustrated and overwhelmed.  It could be that the telling would expose those you don’t wish to name – or bring up bad or painful memories.  Either way, I too have thought “one of these days – I will write a book” – but I don’t think it can happen in the “truest” form.  Too much stuff – too “unfinished” – too – yeah you know.

I believe writers can sharpen other writers.  And I believe they can inspire and encourage.  Knowing that Rod has been able to ‘fictitiously’ make sense out of his circumstances and events – has made me curious about mine.  And because anything can happen in our imagination this can also be a very healing tool.  One thing is for sure – I would rewrite the already written.  I would bring closure to a painful period.  Something that has already happened in my dream world.  In fact sometimes dreams can be so real that I actually have awakened up a few times thinking the “thing” was actually resolved.

My rewrite is probably different from yours.  It definitely takes two people to resolve a conflict and begin healing.  Maybe your rewrite would include a person who has already passed away, a parent, a lost child or friend.  Maybe you would say – or have them say the things you have needed to say or hear.  Or maybe still it’s a person (like mine) who is still living and breathing – but who does not want to resolve anything.  Either way – the rewrite would bring that healing and final conclusion – you know – the one that would actually make sense – bring healing and set you free.

We all have a story to tell – and whether it’s just “I’m sorry” or in my case “All is forgiven, what took you so long to come around again?”  It’s your story – and maybe you need to write it.

Here’s to – ‘Rewriting The Already Written’ – letting go of pain and replacing with things that finally make sense.  Bringing good out of chaos and lessons learned.  Bringing full resolution to your heart and soul.

God Bless

Say Once More

Love for Arts

Need a little love today?  This song is a great reminder.  As I creep closer and closer to my 30th wedding anniversary to Greg – I find myself hearing songs of love and closeness that remind me of our long love affair.  This Amy Grant song beautifully expresses love for another human being, our love for God  –  and His for us.

Dedicated to all you lovers out there!

Enjoy and God Bless!

Let me say once more that I love you,
Let me say one time, maybe two,
That I love the way that you love me,
And I wish I knew more of you.

Let me say once more that I love you,
Let me say one time, maybe two,
That I love the way that you love me,
And I wish I knew more of you.

Tell me that time can’t erase
This look of love on your face.

Let me say once more that I need you,
One more time or just maybe two.
Oh, my life will always be richer
For the time I’ve spent here with you.

Let me say once more that I love you,
Let me say one time, maybe two,
That I love the way that you love me,
And I wish I knew more of you.

Tell me that time won’t erase
The way that my heart sees your face.

I call your name,
You look my way,
It’s clear you trust each word I say.
When life is long and problems come,
You’ll always be my only one.
So now we’re standing face to face,
And with one look my eyes embrace me.
Squeeze away each haunting fear,
And say the words I long to hear.

Tell me that time won’t erase
This look of love.

Ohhhh….

Let me say once more.
I love you.
I do, I do, I do, I do, I do.

Let me say once more that I love you,
Let me say one time, maybe two,
That I love the way that you love me,
And I wish I knew more of you.

Let me say once more that I love you,
One more time or just maybe two,
That I love the way that you love me,
And I want to know more of you.

(I call your name,
You look my way, I love you.
It’s clear you trust each word I say. I do….
When life is long and problems come,
You’ll always be my only one.
So now we’re standing face to face, oh, I need you.
And with one look my eyes embrace me. I want you.
Squeeze away each haunting fear, more and more and more.
And say the words I long to hear.)

(I call your name, let me say once more
You look my way, that I love you,
It’s clear you trust each word I say. let me say one time, maybe two,
When life is long and problems come, that I love the way that you love me,
You’ll always be my only one. and I wish I knew more of you.
So now we’re standing face to face, let me say once more that I love you,
And with one look my eyes embrace me. let me say one time, maybe two,
Squeeze away each haunting fear, that I love the way that you love me,
And say the words I long to hear.) and I wish I knew more of you.
