It began with a vision board.

Yes, it began with a vision board.

With a stack of magazines, scissors, a cork board and pins, one weekend during the Spring of 2007, I set off to put together a vision board.

College boy was watching sports on television as he often did during the weekends of his high school years.

College boy asked, “Mom, WHAT are you doing?”

“I am making a vision board,” I replied.

“A vision board?”

“Yes, a vision board. You should make one, too!” I said.

“I am making a vision board with all the things I want to focus on to manifest in my life. You should make one too! You want to be a pilot? Cut out a picture of an airplane and imagine yourself flying that plane. You want to get into Embry Riddle? Cut out the school logo and put that on your board.”

College Boy made his vision board. He got into Embry Riddle and he got his Private Pilot’s license, too! The vision board worked.

My vision board included:

  • A man with a beautiful smile wearing jeans and a denim shirt sitting in a log cabin looking out a window. Looking out across a vast open landscape.
  • A diamond solitaire ring
  • Horses
  • A happy couple walking hand in hand
  • The words: love, happiness, joy, together, laughter, etc.

I was visualizing meeting a wonderful man that was happy and with whom I could sit and cuddle with. A man that would ask me to marry him and we would love each other forever. We would have a life of love, laughter and happiness forever and ever. We would proudly walk hand in hand.

Now for the horses. I am not sure why I had included the horses on my vision board. I just knew at the time that they represented calmness to me. They represented a life away from the craziness of the city. I thought maybe I would like to go visit a dude ranch in Montana.

It was only a few months after I created my vision board that I would meet Mr. Rancher.
It was only a few months after I created my vision board that I would find out that I, too, had manifested the relationship that I had so desired and deserved! Yes, I deserved to be in a relationship.

Mr. Rancher wore jeans and often wore denim shirts embroidered with his brand above the shirt pocket.
Mr. Rancher had owned a cattle ranch in the past and was looking to own another cattle ranch. He was looking for a woman that would like the life of living on a cattle ranch. He was looking for a woman who wanted to be loved and cuddled. He was looking for a woman to live the rest of his life with. I was intrigued.

It didn’t take long before I was wearing that diamond solitaire.

It didn’t take long before Mr. Rancher purchased another cattle ranch. A place where we would call home. A place where we would share our love for one another and live a loving life full of happiness and love…

So I thought…

What am I grateful for?

I think I should look at the little things today…

I am grateful for the church I have found this year. I need to get involved there. Right now I just go to the service and leave. Yes, I do need to get involved.

I am grateful for my kids. My kids are wonderful! My kids are smart! My kids are achievers and doers and successful! My kids are awesome! I know, I say that all the time. It is a Mom thing!

I am grateful for food to eat, clothes to wear, a roof over my head and a nice car to drive. The basics! The basics that we often take advantage of having. Shoes to wear. Can you imagine not having a good pair of shoes to wear?

I am grateful to be a Christian, to love God, to have faith, to believe and to know God. To have Faith! Yes, have faith! I am working on that big time this year. Have faith. Must have faith. Be grateful for having faith.

I am grateful for my health. Can’t forget that! So many friends and family who do not have their health. Yes, this is a big one to be grateful for.

A Simple Text Message | #167

I am grateful for a text message.
Yep, a simple text message I received from College Boy out of the blue it said:

I love you!

That is it, I love you!

That is all a mom needs, I love you!

Then to make the day even better, I get a call from Sissy.
Just a simple hello.
That is all…

That is all a middle aged empty nest mom needs to be grateful and to make her day…
unexpected communication from her kids!
