About Me:

~~~~~ My Outlook on Life~~~~~

Life is sometime like a rainy day. There are sorrows and sets backs around. We can't stop the rain, but we can choose how we react to it.

I choose to splash in it... and to enjoy all of God's gifts

So I guess you could call me a perpetual optimist.

I want to see the beauty in the small things.. and share it with everyone around me.

So if you catch me with a silly grin on my face or my head in the clouds, it is because I am overwhelmed at the greatness of God.

~~~~~Capturing the world around me~~~~

I must share this great love I've found in Him.... I want to capture His beauty and share it with others... whether it be in painting, drawing, writing, taking pictures, signing, or playing music.

Yet the more I try to cage it in words, paint, graphite, hand motions or notes... the more I realize that I can't... I'm like a 3 year old trying to copy The Last Supper with a purple crayon... but I doodle on.

~~~~Little things in life~~~~

I love the little things in life... the little blossoms of a clover, a baby's smile, a child's hug, a cup of hot tea... Thus you could find me stopping to listen to the birds sing while heading into the pediatrician's office I work at or smiling at the way the green trees looks against the blue sky while going to class.

God has taken my life on some twists and turns I would have never expected, but He is somehow painting something beautiful on this canvas of life.

~~~~End notes~~~~

I'm afraid that I don't get on HSA much anymore. Between working at a doctor's office and going to nursing school doesn't leave much time for internet.... yet I will try to check this account at least once a month... famous last words.
