Happy Thanksgiving to all my Sweeteas!!!
So I suppose a day of Thanksgiving is the perfect day to begin my blog....A Spoonful of Sugar!! I have been traveling the past few months visiting such great cities to share my "Sweetea Story," and hopefully spread a lil' Southern Grace, and I am truly grateful for the reception from Austin, Texas to Raleigh, North Carolina!! It is has truly been a blessing to meet so many fabulous Southern Women along the way. No matter where I go, I always meet someone that assures me that this is where I am suppose to be......Sweeteas!!!!
If you have read my story, you know that my path has been one with many mountains the last few years. I have read a ton!!! I have cried a ton!!! However, through it all, I have found joy!!! Maybe my theme in life is to help others find Joy through their suffering, as well. So while I write for children, this blog will be for the mothers, aunts, grandmothers and girlfriends that love them. I have found great power in leaning on scriptures and motivational quotes from the books that have strengthened me these last few years. I decorate my world with them...my bathroom mirror, my closet, my pantry, my back door, my car visor, my day timer etc... I know that this is a journey that can easily be swayed by the demands of playing the many roles of a woman today, so I shield myself with the positive words to keep me focused. There is great power in speaking them out loud too.My name, Rochelle, means from the Rock. Beth Moore says that sometimes we are more useful healed than we ever were well, so my journey is to the Rock. so that I too will be more useful healed. I hope you will check in with me and maybe find a Spoonful of Sugar that makes your day!!! I have found joy and I would love to share it with you!!!!
Today is a day for thankfulness, so let us count our blessings! I was listening to Martina McBride last night, Blessed!! If you have it, it's a great way to start your day!!
The quote that I loved that started this Sweetea Journey was from the book
Captivating by Stasi Eldredge (I highly recommend!!!!), so it is appropriate that I start here with you.
Then the time came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was far greater than it was to blossom!!!!
Change is sometimes necessary, but often it is surprisingly wonderful!!!
