10 years gone – seems like the blink of an eye


ten years ago today my mom lost her fight with cancer. i can hardly believe that it has been that long. i miss mom quite a bit. if you have not spoken to a loved one or told them how you feel about them, please take time to do so today. i wish that i had not let my ego and desire to be right override my love for others that i can no longer speak with or interact with. i do not have regrets – but i do have a huge desire for just a few more moments. moments to say what should have been said, moments to hug one more time, moments that can never come back. be blessed today, and make an example of how to live your life for others.


i wish that you could watch the little ones grow up – they do ask…

On this day in 1966 Beatle Paul McCartney taking the advice of his financial advisors in an attempt to protect his earnings from the taxman by purchasing property bought the High Park Farm near Campbeltown near the Mull of Kintyre in Scotland. It was a three bedroom farmhouse with 183 acres.

Paul’s girlfriend at the time, actress Jane Asher encouraged him to buy the dilapidated farmhouse as a place for him to get away from the craziness of Beatlemania. It wouldn’t be until 1969 when Paul married Linda Eastham that renovations occurred and McCartney would spend a lot of time there. The Beatles final #1 “The Long And Winding Road” was inspired by this area and of course Paul’s 1977 smash hit in the UK “Mull of Kintyre” was inspired by his time spent in the area. Paul still owns the farm but hasn’t spent much or any time there…

Hi everyone, my name is Andy Thomson and my passion is letting the world know that there is great writers/bloggers out there, and am writing this post to try and get people to visit my site and discover the talented writers who’s posts I have shared.

Sharing somebody else’s work brings us together as a community of like minded people and gives us the opportunity to experience the thoughts, highlights and adventures of those who write the posts. Together we can educate and bring together people from all over the world, and in today’s current climate that’s, not such a bad thing.

The challenges that we face in life will always be there, but it’s how you take on those challenges that are important, and writing for me personally is one way of dealing with those challenges.  You will find that by reading about somebody else’s experiences can help another person then writing that post was worth it. Writing is also about having fun, so it’s not all doom and gloom, it can also make you laugh, and that’s a medicine in its self.

So please take time out to visit lincolnlifesite.wordpress.com read their posts and share with others because you do make a difference.

thanks so much for reading this post



How Living Minimally Helped me get the Maximum out of Life

conlan smith

I have avoided writing on the topic of minimalism because it is both a new lifestyle choice for me (of about a year,) and minimalism is a very precious subject to me.  I wanted to make sure I did the topic justice, and clearly explained just how beneficial it is to live minimally.

A brief background on me – I am 31, my husband and I sold our house last year, got rid of almost all of our belongings, moved across the country and went back to school.  Wow, thats a mouthful, but none the less, this time last year we had officially sold our 3 bedroom home.  We now live in a studio apartment in Los Angeles, probably the least expensive of the “cleaner” apartments that allow pets.  We both work part time and have prioritized our education as full-time students.  Last month I delivered a speech titled Living…

Living With Separated Parents


“Storms make trees take deeper roots.”

I really didn’t think when making this blog with Madison that we’d really publish anything super personal but here I am…haha. First I’ll just dive into a brief overview of my life.

Growing up and moving from South Africa to Canada was a really long process but we made it here and my family absolutely fell in love with this multi-cultural country. As you can imagine, I can’t remember much of when I was a child but some parts I do. Some I forget even if it was just 6 years ago which is scary because I don’t want to forget those parts of my life. I can’t remember much about my parents when I was a child but I remember they were always really stressed but being a child I didn’t take notice anything in anybody else’s lives but my own since I…

Mentally & spiritually I am Motivated

My Big Beautiful Dreams

I want to diet & exercise. I want to read,journal,& blog. I want to clean my house,buy my groceries,cook my own food,& enjoy life. Unfortunately I am physically handicapped…suffering with COPD,Sleep Apnea,digestion issues,lower back pain,pain in my hips,& pain in my knees. I’m anemic,sleep all day & awake all night. I am 100 pounds overweight. I sometimes awake with severe cramps in my feet. That’s when a foot twist outward or inward & the toes curl. Standing or walking usually ends the horror & pain. That’s a time when I’m up & out of bed in hurry.

Tonight I am enjoying Kahlua White Russian & YouTube vids. I’m hooked up to my oxygen machine,in my dining room. I have fun size candy bars & a cheeseburger…& Gin. I deserve all of it. I am making the most of my weekend.
