I had taken a break from blogging for a few days as my baby, Caesar, has been ill for quite some time and got worse lately.  I took him for a second opinion on Friday, only to find out he has kidney disease and a 4-5 cm mass by his spine (Cancer).  It was a very sad and awful weekend as we had to make the decision to let him go and not be in pain any longer.  He is now an Angel in heaven with his sister Cleopatra and brother Tucker running and playing.  They are all Angels now!  It was the worst and hardest decision we have had to make in a long time.  He was so sweet and gave us 10 1/2 years of nothing but love and kisses.  Lordy but that boy loved his snuggles and to be held like a baby.

My baby Caesar, I can’t stop crying.  I miss you so much that I feel so empty and lost without you.  You gave us so much that I still see you everywhere.  No matter where I look, there you are.  I’m not ready to let you go.  Lord help me I’m not ready…

Caesar & Wings


When you need a little love, a little sign, or just a ray of hope, look up… You never know what you’ll see, what you’ll find, or what you’ll hear from within.


Always with Peace, Love, Light, and Strength my dear Angels.


ALL ANIMALS big and small are precious and should be treated as such.  When we have a fluffy and furry pet to call ours and love with all our hearts, it is awful to let them go and rest in peace above.  But, one day we will meet up again and until then he or she can play in the heavens above and look upon us from time to time.  I know I have lost my share of babies and it is so painful and hurts too  much.  But, I would not miss out on the love that we shared and will continue to have my  fluffy and furry babies no matter what.

Know that when you have a fluffy and furry baby who passes, he or she is with the Angels now above.  He or she will always be with you and looking upon you from heaven above.  I believe that.  So, look up and smile and know your baby is in the arms of the Angels and we will be with them again, one day.

Always with LIFE, LIGHT, GUIDANCE, and LOVE!


It’s with a heavy heart that I edit this post after just putting it up yesterday.  My father’s baby girl, Sandy passed away this morning.  She had been sick for some time, but we thought she was doing better.  She passed early this morning sleeping next to him in bed.  She was the sweetest little girl you ever met. She is now in heaven with my baby girl, Cleopatra and her brother Tucker.  They are all no longer in pain and can run around in heaven and play.

Until we meet again sweet Sandy ~ you will be dearly missed.  Give Cleopatra and Tucker a kiss for me!


I must say that social media certainly has its advantages!  Our family grew up with a certain young man and through the years and time, we all lost contact.  We moved away – he joined the Air Force – and we just lost each other thru time.  There were no cell phones then, only paper and pencil in which to keep in touch and the rotary type phones (either hanging from the wall or sitting upon a table).  Anyone remember those?  Here, let me show you should you not know… 8)

So, with that said, he was a vital part of our home and family life as we were his.  He was – FAMILY.  It has been years since we have seen him and/or heard of or from him.  Though, thru this time we always wondered how he was and hoped he was well.

This morning, my older brother texted me at 7:00 a.m. and asked if I had a chance to try and locate him thru Facebook (as we discussed on my visit a few weeks back).  Blurry eyed and not quite awake yet I replied that I had not, but I would look into it when I got up and got my day started.  Once I was more awake and after getting ready for work, I proceeded to do a Facebook check of his name.  His full name, including middle was not there.  So, using just his first and last I began my search.  And, wouldn’t you know – there were many in which to choose.  One by one I went until I located a gentlemen I thought might be him.  I proceeded to open his page and message him and stated the facts as they are:  “Good day Alan. I am looking for an Alan originally from Homestead, who was in the Air Force, whose brother lives in Atlanta and whose mom lives in Ocala. Are you him by chance? I hope you are well and have a great day. Thank you for obliging me in this crazy message.”  It was a chance I had to take.  I had to know.  Would you think I was crazy?  Lol.

Upon receiving my message, he responded:  “Depends.. Is this Dawn Marie from Homestead whose dad would find me and Randy anywhere and everywhere we weren’t suppose to be?”  It was him for sure!  I couldn’t believe it.  We were both so excited to finally be back in touch after all this time.  And my brother, well, he was very happy I found him.  We chatted for a while, exchanged contact information and though I wanted to chat all day, I felt I must get back to work.  If I must…

So, without the social media we have in this day and age, I probably would have not located such an important part of our childhood and our family.  To this I say kudos to social media.  One of the main reasons I do really like it.

Everything happens for a reason and though time all works itself out.  The Angels were looking upon us this day and guiding us back together.  The way it should be after all this time.

Old Friends


Good morning from Long Beach/Alamitos Beach where I am joining you via the Special Olympics!  Yes, why not blog as I am awaiting digital work from my photographers.  8)  The athletes are amazing and the volunteers that I have met are super nice.  Everyone is honored to be here helping out.

What a weekend! We had the opening ceremonies on Saturday and the first day yesterday, Sunday.  I was so tired that by the time I got home I slept 15 hours with no dinner.  I even missed my honey’s softball game that I like to go to in order to cheer him on.

With that, welcome to the last week in July, 2015. What a beautiful day to be here with you and enjoying the special day with such special athletes!!  Life is special and a gift ~ so no matter what you are going thru, please take time out to appreciate where you are in life and in the world at this time in your life.  It is a gift to wake up and “smell what the Rock is cooking!”  LOL!

Know that I am thinking about you all and wishing you all a fantastic day/week.

Cheers my fellow Angels!  With light, love and special guidance!

Work ~ Why…

There is something to be said for a slow day at a criminal defense law office.  I get to spend some time reading and blogging.  Granted, I should be working, but why?  I would rather be here with you instead of here at work.  So, let’s knock this day out of the park shall we…

Happy Wednesday my lovely angels!  I hope you have a fabulous day!

Happy Tuesday my lovely angels!  Welcome to another beautiful week in July, 2015.

Don’t you just love nature!  I certainly do.  Just to be out in it and breathe in the fresh air a well as listening to all the amazing animals that surround you.

I found this amazing photo online yesterday and thought I would share it with you.  What do you see?   You never know where an angel might be and/or show up to let you know they are present.  So, keep you eyes open because you might be surprised.

Have an awesome day ladies and gentlemen and thank you for spending some time with me.  Please feel free to share my blog posts with anyone you think might be in need of a little enlightenment.



You know, life is strange.  You never know what is around the bend from one day to the next.  It’s always an adventure.  A friend of mine showed me a photo this morning that he took while he and his wife were out walking the streets of Los Angeles this past weekend.  Granted, his photo has he in one and her in another (in the center), but I found a few online without anyone in them by Collette Miller and thought I would share it.  Seeing the photos below and knowing that this individual is going around town painting such great angel wings is fabulous.  Some call it “graffiti” and some call it “art.”  Title them what you want, but I believe they bring peace, happiness, light, and a smile to everyone’s face when they see them.  Things happen for a reason I believe and here you go, Angel Wings by Colette Miller.

ART ...    A 1...   HOB


Everyone at some time in their lives have something going on that he or she need to be reminded that they are not alone.  You are, in fact, being looked out for and over by your Angels.  Whether you believe me or not, everyone has an Angel looking over them.  They might be in a higher realm or they might be your best friend or co-worker.  But, just know that in some way, shape, or form, we all have Angels in our lives.   So, stop whatever you are doing, take a minute to sit quietly, relax and just be in the present mind-set.  Enjoy the peace around you while you breathe deep breaths in and out with the thoughts of your Angel looking over.  Think and feel positive with the trust and love that you are never really alone.

I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.
The mind is everything. What you think you become.
A good friend who points out mistakes and imperfections and rebukes evil is to be respected as if he reveals a secret of hidden treasure.
What is the appropriate behavior for a man or a woman in the midst of this world, where each person is clinging to his piece of debris? What’s the proper salutation between people as they pass each other in this flood?
We are formed and molded by our thoughts. Those whose minds are shaped by selfless thoughts give joy when they speak or act. Joy follows them like a shadow that never leaves them.
Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.
You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
When one has the feeling of dislike for evil, when one feels tranquil, one finds pleasure in listening to good teachings; when one has these feelings and appreciates them, one is free of fear.
