So this is Xmas!!

My sister keeps nagging for blog updates....And I'm really busy at the moment but, I thought I should share my adventures anyway....

I set up my christmas tree and re-decorated the lounge area so these are my pics....My niece Amber-Jade came to decorate my tree...So put on some Christmas carols and she says...."I love xmas" ...we asked y? she said" it brings my family together!"...AAAWH how sweet!!! She's adorable!!!

Anyway a friend shared this mail with me and since it's my bday moro I thought I'd share this with you....It really tuggged at my heart strings...and I think it has purpose since it will also be two years post transplant for my fiancé who had a heart transplant on my birthday.....(it is a bit long but, worth the read)

A little dedication to me best friend and stunning partner Damien...It's not the way we fall that defines us, it's how we get up after we fall that defines...I love you!

Love, WendyB,x

Once there were three trees on a hill in the woods.
They were discussing their hopes and dreams when the first tree said,

"Someday I hope to be a treasure chest. I could be filled with gold, silver
and precious gems. I could be decorated with intricate carving and everyone
would see the beauty."

Then the second tree said, "Someday I will be a mighty ship. I will take
kings and queens across the waters and sail to the corners of the world.
Everyone will feel safe in me because of the strength of my hull."
Finally the third tree said, "I want to grow to be the tallest and
straightest tree in the forest. People will see me on top of the Hill and
look up to my branches, and think of the heavens and God and how close to
them I am reaching. I will be the greatest tree of all time and people will
always remember me."
After a few years of praying that their dreams would come true, a group of
woodsmen came upon the trees.
When one came to the first tree he said, "This looks like a strong tree, I
think I should be able to sell the wood to a carpenter," and he began
cutting it down. The tree was happy, because he knew that the carpenter
would make him into a treasure chest.

At the second tree the woodsman said, "This looks like a strong tree. I
should be able to sell it to the shipyard." The second tree was happy
because he knew he was on his way to becoming a mighty ship.

When the
woodsmen came upon the third tree, the tree was frightened because he knew
that if they cut him down his dreams would not come true. One of the
Woodsmen said, "I don't need anything special from my Tree, I'll take this
one," and he cut it down.
When the first tree arrived at the carpenters, he was made into a feed box
for animals. He was then placed in a barn and filled with hay. This was not
at all what he had prayed for.
The second tree was cut and made into a small fishing boat. His dreams of
being a mighty ship and carrying kings had come to an end.
The third tree was cut into large pieces, and left alone in the dark.
The years went by, and the trees forgot about their dreams.

Then one day, a man and woman came to the barn.. She gave birth and they
placed the baby in the hay in the feed box that was made from the first
tree. The man wished that he could have made a crib for the baby, but this
manger would have to do. The tree could feel the importance of this event
and knew that it had held the greatest treasure of all time.
Years later, a group of men got in the fishing boat made from the second
tree. One of them was tired and went to sleep. While they were out on the
water, a great storm arose and the tree didn't think it was strong enough
keep the men safe. The men woke the sleeping man, and He stood and said
"Peace" and the Storm stopped. At this time, the tree knew that it had
carried the King of Kings in its boat.
Finally, someone came and got the third tree. It was carried through the
streets as the people mocked the man who was carrying it. When they came to
a stop, the man was nailed to the tree and raised in the air to die at the
top of a hill. When Sunday came, the tree came to realize that it was
enough to stand at the top of the hill and be as close to God as was
possible, because Jesus had been crucified on it.

The moral of this story is that when things don't seem to be going your
always know that God has a plan for you. If you place your trust in Him,
will give you great gifts.

Each of the trees got what they wanted, just not in the way they had

We don't always know what God's plans are for us. We just know that His
are not our ways, but His ways are always best..

May your day be blessed. And until we meet again, may God cradle you In the
palm of His hand

Three times a lady

I have this friend who knows absolutely all the words of Lionel Richie...every time I hear those songs I think of him.....

I always think of the vintage theme where females were still ladies....Like Lionel Richie's...three times a lady....I think as time goes on you could either be more refined and become a lady of you can become an old bag lady(for I coulda use a bad word here but, that would be unlady like)...I prefer the LADY....and thats what I am...three times a lady....like when you think before you speak & act...like when you consider people's feelings .....and when you confident and know people respect you and value your opinion....

So this dress I'm wearing leaves alot up to your imagination...It has a 50's type flapper style to it...it has chiffon frills, is floaty, light and feminine....
