About Me

After years of working at computer companies as a Contract Administrator and a Program Manager, I decided to re-prioritize my life and quit working so many hours with too much stress. Now I work for myself as a residential cleaning lady and I love it! The name of my company is Sparkling Clean, although I work for myself and am the only employee.

I am single, divorced and an empty nester. Now that my children are grown, I'm finding ways to continue to be happy, live a great life and learn how to cook for one person.

I have 2 wonderful sons Jason and Brady. They are the light of my life and I've been very blessed to be their mother.

 I was a single mother when I married, Jason who was 9 years old at the time. I was only married for a short 4 years. Joyfully, I had my youngest son Brady while I was married. My marriage was hard and a mistake, but I was blessed with a wonderful son through it.

My children are the light of my life! I don't know if I will venture into a marriage again - time will tell. Of course I want the "Happily Every After" with a prince charming that will love and adore me (I'm not crazy).  At this time in my life, I am very happy being a single woman.

My favorite place to be is at home, I am a total home body. I enjoy cooking and baking. I love blogging my life history/journal. I like getting my hands dirty by working in the yard and flower beds. I love a clean home and love to decorate for each holiday. I am HAPPY Always!

My blog is my journal about what my life and what my family is doing.  I enjoy stress free blogging and I will always blog about my children and what is going on. I try not to offend any readers - but ultimately this is for my history and for me. I don't let the pressure of "who" is reading my blog influence "how" I tell my story.

For me, blogging is a wonderful TOOL to leave pleasant memories for my children about my thoughts and feelings. I really don't want to be just a "date" and a "name" for my future generations. It makes me sad that my father died without leaving a journal or life history written by him. I won't do that for my own children and grandchildren. I want to leave a journal behind, so they will know me.

 I print off blog books every 6 months. Here are 8 years of blog book - that are really scrap books and journals. This is why I love blogging!
My favorite Scripture is: "Oh, be wise, what can I say more" Jacob 6:12

Some of my favorite quotes:
"Be kind. Everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
— Marjorie Pay Hinckley

The quote above came from a Sheri Dew talk ... Love it!

"To the women of today, who are old or young, may I suggest that you write, that you keep journals, that you express your thoughts. Writing is a great discipline. It is a tremendous education effort. It will assist you in various ways, and you will bless the lives of many ~ now and in the years to come, as you {share} some of your experiences and musings."

Gordon B. Hinckley

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill. It will make or break a company...a church...a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes. "~ Charles Swindoll

Distinguish between Needs and Wants

We must learn to distinguish between wants and needs. We should be modest in our wants. It takes self-discipline to avoid the “buy now, pay later” philosophy and to adopt the “save now and buy later” practice.

Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin (1917–2008) taught: “All too often a family's spending is governed more by their yearning than by their earning. They somehow believe that their life will be better if they surround themselves with an abundance of things. All too often all they are left with is avoidable anxiety and distress” (“Earthly Debts, Heavenly Debts,Liahona, May 2004, 42).
If you don’t know how to save, no amount of money will ever be enough.
