I always will.... <3<3<3

Enrique Iglesias- Only You

To 2012

They can be so vivid, and so heartbreaking when you wake up to the truth.  I, once again, dreamed of my brother, Charles last night, several times.  When I woke, I just cried.  We were in church, all of his siblings, doing some kind of skit.  Charles kept forgetting his lines.  I apologized, and he spoke up in anger cursing his disease, using the lord's name in vain.  When he finished, I told him he owed everyone an apology; he was in God's house.  Pastor Brooks began to ask him if he had been given liver stints, (never heard of one of those for a liver), about a liver transplant, etc..  I began to cry, as I explained to him he had to have supervised sobriety of 6 months before he was a candidate.  He would not make it that long.  The Pastor said it was nothing to be ashamed of, and I argued that I doubt anyone would admit to the disease of alcoholism.  Then I polled the church and at least 50% of the hands came up.  I was amazed by the honesty and compassion of the congregation. My brother wept, we all did.  It was then I realized he was already gone. :(

I miss you, Charles.  I'm sorry that I didn't have more compassion for you.  I hope you have forgiven me.  Love, Your Sister Paula

Sweets for the sweet. HA! LMBO!

Anyway, I hope you and your Mom enjoyed the candy.  That should last a long time.  Harry London is known for their fine chocolates. 

Maybe your New Year will be brighter.  It's all about perspective, Darling.  You can wallow, or you can choose to be happy.  The choice is yours.  I choose HAPPY!

To Cindarella!

Cindarella is proof a new pair of shoes can change your life

What the Shape of Your Lipstick Says About Your Personality

The Power Woman
She is self-confident, well-balanced, conscientious, and has a love for detail. With her
energy and creativity, she gets over every hurdle. She has a perfect memory, doesn’t bear
grudges, and is always the centre of attention in her circle of friends. In her life, everything
always goes steeply upwards, just like the shape of her lipstick. So she is not the type of
woman whose place is in the kitchen – nobody can control her.

Special Prayer Request

Asking for your prayers for my 23 year old niece, Brittany Loper. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer during the birth of her 1 year old. Her ovary was removed, but now a mass has been detected on the same side. She will be coming to Savannah to the Gyn/Oncologist group for a biopsy. Please hold her out in special prayer that God will heal her.  Brittany is a divorced  mom to two precious baby girls, ages 1 and 4.  She is the youngest daughter of my brother, Charles, who recently passed away.

Don't Die For Love

You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-analyzing a situation, trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could've, would've happened... or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move on ♥

For you!

Happy Holidays...

When life does not go our way or we inadvertently make a mistake, it is so easy to make excuses, place blame on others, or argue that circumstances were against us. But we only progress in life to the extent that we take responsibility for our actions and attitudes, and put forth the initiative necessary to create our own circumstances. Stephen Covey


Matthew 5:44 ESV But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.

Monday, December 12, 2011


Ephesians 4:31-32 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.


Happy Day!

Hunter and Danielle

College Graduation, December 10, 2011 <3

John 8:32

32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.


1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Graduation, 12-10-2011

Today I rejoiced and celebrated the accomplishments of Hunter Smoak, as he graduated college; and achieved yet another milestone in his life. I am very Proud of you, son. I know your father is smiling down on his "Partner", today. I love you! ♥

Special Christmas Gift!

I received the sweetest gift ever today from my brother, Peyton Bacon's, girlfriend, Wendi. She had a box of 8mm film from vacations my parents had taken, transferred to DVD. My brother, Charles is in there, healthy as can be. My parents are young, and beautiful. Wow, my Daddy has been gone so long I guess I had forgotten how handsome he was. He was one good looking man. I cried, I laughed, then I cried some more. Thank you Wendi from the bottom of my heart. You are an Angel. Love you!

Busy Saturday

My son's college graduation, luncheon, then a Christmas party with a friend at the yacht club. 

Can't wait for the first one!  I'm very proud of you Hunter.  I love you so much!  <3
