May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.

Within each of us is a spirit yearning to be set free. May you all experience love and Beauty in this lifetime.

    Hi Jackie.
    Sorry to hear the foot issues. I have them too.
    But I refuse to get rid of all my gorgeous shoes, heels, boots.
    I did sort through to make the move from Oregon to Florida
    Lots of sandals, some with heels. lower than before but still rise me up.Ha!!
    I have fought the aging process, but gradually give in some ways.
    I had terrible feet numbness, pins and needle pain before I lost weight.
    Now it's only once in a while a little , but before it was hell.
    I used to get up at night and soak my feet in cold water. Terrible.
    I brought my red boots with me. They aren't western but love them.
    Just like Dorothy in her red shoes, I feel special.
    Have adjusted to living in Miami Beach. It hasn't changed much since I lived here before.
    But I have changed. Not as young , so activity had to be adjusted. Ha!!
    Still working on jewelry, no craft shows, just my Etsy shop.
    Hope the Summer has been enjoyable.
    Take care.
    Hugs Tisha emoticon

    emoticon Paula & I made it to Africa! Today I was in Botswana. It's fantastic here! I was hoping you might join us. You can find this African Trip in the LoL Challenge 08/05 & you can check out our pics in the LoL Challenge Chat thread. I went up in a hot air balloon ride. It was amazing and I only scream a few times!! Hope to see you! emoticon
