What My HEART says...

What a week...
I have been all out of sorts.
My routine has been WAY off.

But that's what happens
when you are living a life.

Dave is WELL. 
I am so very grateful 
for all your heartfelt prayers 
and words. They all have 
meant so much.

I think Dave has been blown away
by the blogging and FB world!!

The past few days I have been creating.
And even though I work
I am still not quite sure where
I am going.

I don't have a clue.
So many things are in my heart.

I had a dream the other night about my life.
The life I'm supposed to be living.
It does involve art.

But not the creating so much...
but the teaching.

I have always been passionate about teaching
and inspiring
and uplifting.

I talk about it here all the time.

I went back and read my journals.
10 years ago I was talking about 
teaching art and words and telling your story.

I know that's what I'm supposed to do.

I will keep creating.
I will do this show in Iowa.

I may do more shows.

But I know where my true passion lies...
what it is I'm supposed to be doing.
What gets me sooo excited about life.

Be on the lookout for



12 Feelings of Christmas.

What is your TRUE passion?


  1. Ooh, I love that your journals from 10 years! ago said the same thing! YOU ARE an incredible motivator and I can really see you in that position - good luck and I'm glad to hear that everyone is well. Please give your DH my best, xoxo

  2. So glad to hear that the news of your husband is good! And how exciting to hear of your teaching aspirations and plans!

  3. What a gorgeous photo! This is a wonderful inspiring post..thank you!

  4. So glad that Dave is so much better - what a weight off your heart!
    To find one's passion is wonderful!

  5. Hi Leslie! No worries on mailing the goodies. You have more important things to do right now. I wish you and your family a very healthy, happy long weekend!

    Big Hugs,

  6. oh yes...good to hear dave is doing well must feel so relieved...yes...teaching is my passion, always has been...i taught my little sisters when i was little, i went to college and learnt how to become a teacher, taught in public schools for over twenty years, with a huge emphasis on art...and helping kids feel good about themselves through art, and now I am homeschooling one, and next year 2 of my gives great joy...good luck with your wish to teach...i know you will be fabulous at

  7. Leslie,it has been too long. I am good my friend and am just busy with life. Marriage has been good and just been adjusting to sharing my life with someone, but he's a good someone and I feel very blessed to have him in my life.

    How very awesome about your dream, how truly amazing it is to find your life's path and to know what you want to do in life. I think several of my passions include travel, creating, and fitness. But I'm too broke to travel and I'm trying to quit being lazy so I can get back to working out, which leaves me with creating!! I hope to get to the other two things soon. I am starting to get mentally prepared to do the transformation thing again and focus on making it a lifestyle ( i struggle with that)

    Anyway sweet friend, I'm glad you are creating, I'm happy for your life path, and so happy for your husband that he is doing much better.

    I'll check in with ya soon!
    <3 Shar
