Like most of you I have been out and about, Christmas shopping, going to rehearsals, and attending great Christmas gatherings… and eating toooo much =)
While on one of those excursions, I went to Walgreens for a few things and had a great encounter. I was paying for my items, and the lady behind me had an armload of various Christmas decorations, some lights, a couple stockings, and few other things. I had seen her in the aisle earlier and we had exchanged Hello to each other. When I saw her come up behind me I said Hi again and mentioned that it looked like she had found what she needed.
At this point she smiles Big and said she was getting ready to go decorate a house. She then explained she had a closing that afternoon and she was giving the keys to a new home to her client and 2 children. I really tuned in at this point. She said she wanted to surprise them and wanted them to have a feeling of Christmas when they went to their house for the first time. WOW! Isn’t that soooo cool?! Now let’s go back.
She is a RE agent here in LV and had a closing on a house , which in most cases means the job is done. Many people think that once that happens an agent is done, and they collect their money, right? Well, I know many RE agents, and that really isn’t how they view it. They want relationship and lasting friendships.
This woman was one of those great agents. I thought what she was doing was so sweet that I asked for her card, gave her mine, and invited her to tune in here so I could recognize her for her great efforts and Christmas spirit. Great job Terry P. You made a difference to those around. Blessings for the season and a bountiful New Year!
How can we share a little Christmas spirit today? I’d love to know your ideas!
You are a child of God, Creator of the Universe. A child of Almighty God, ruler of Heaven and Earth, and He loves YOU! WOW! Isn’t that amazing?!
Today as I sit here, it feels like there may be a few of you who may need a little reminder of just how special you are.
Often we think that the car we drive, or the job we have, determines ‘who’ we are. Not true! My friends, things, jobs, positions, money, etc., do not give us our value or worth. It’s being a child of God that matters, believing it can change everything about our life.
It defines our character
It determines our choices
what we do
how we live our life
how we respond to ‘life’
Believe it and receive all the blessings your Father has in store for you… His beautiful child.
“For God so loved the world He gave His Only Son…..” for YOU!”

Over the year we have talked several times about being Fearless and stepping out of our comfort zone. As I think about the whole concept of being a Fun Fearless Female, I realize I haven’t talked at all about being ‘female’. We use many words, female, woman, lady, but within all of these is the concept of femininity. This may seem to a little strange, but ladies, I’d love to know: what does femininity mean to you?
I’ve been talking to my friends here in Las Vegas, and getting some great responses. I’d like to hear from a broader range and different parts of the country … so ladies…. help me out.
You can answer on here where others can read, send me a private message on FB, OR send me an email. THANKS so much!
Of course there is no right or wrong answer… just your answer. It’s a word that conjures up many thoughts and it may depend on a variety of things.
The dictionary defines it: the quality of being female; womanliness. I think it means a lot more than that.
It may depend
on your age
on your upbringing
on where you are from, what part of the country
on your relationship with your family, your Mother
SO…… what does Femininity mean YOU?
Oh, and you guys, if you are reading this you may want to switch off … BUT if you’d like to answer from your perspective, that would be fun. Guys what does Femininity mean to you?
