Going Home

Thinking about this song "The House That Built Me" written by a good friend of ours, Allen Shamblin... I'm thinking you CAN go home again... I did last week.. I took a friend to my hometown to see where I grew up. My Mom and Dad are gone now but this house gave life to dreams I didn't even know I had.. I realized, you can try to forget where you came from but it never forgets you....It lays next to you at night. It walks side by side down the street with you and sometimes it even walks a few steps behind..

I love my House.. I love where I came from ... It taught me to know good from bad and it taught me about Love and Respect..

It also taught me as well about horrible fear and sadness yet that is how it taught me to rise up no matter how scared or hurt I was....

It made me realize that Life happens, good and bad but all for ultimate good in life.

So much of life has been written down. So many great chapters ... Great in Good and Great in Love and Great in Bad...

Sometimes days feels like a "throw around"... and then I realize I'm at my best when I'm in over my head.. If I just stay there, only in my head, there is no challenge and the one bad thing this house taught me was to stay afraid and stay below the radar and don't create attention..

Today I know I'm not any of those afraid things that I believed about myself while laying there in that single little bed.. Every tear I shed was preparing me to "BE".

The people that love you are the people that support your dreams.

The people that love you are the ones who make you feel that those dreams you have are not just dreams, but that those dreams are you and they are suppose to "BE"...

They are the loves of my life.

This has everything to do with me designing jewelry today.

Be Love pass it on...

I'm only a writer when I can hear myself......
