A Shout Out to all our Veterans!

Good morning, everyone! It’s a beautiful, chilly day here on the Gulf Coast. I have my hot coffee at hand as I write you this article, ready to start the day!

Today is Friday, November 11th. A very important day for us here in the United States. It’s Veterans Day!

“A celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.” ~ https://www.va.gov/opa/vetsday/vetdayhistory.asp

I have a lot of family members that have served in the military, and are still serving…. Including all branches. The military is extremely dear to me, gets me choked up with pride. I love them all!!

Also, with it being November 11th…. Which is Angel Number 11/11…. To me, it holds a great deal of significance as well.

*While other numbers also have special meanings, 1111 — in particular — is considered an “angel number” that has been connected to good events, “such as, people being saved from some life-threatening occurrences or circumstances,” says Vincent Genna, spiritual teacher, psychic therapist and host of weekly radio show, Stop Stopping Yourself!” ~ https://www.womansday.com/life/a39779218/1111-meaning-numerology/

“1111 is a very high vibration number that communicates confirmation, especially as it pertains to spiritual discovery and journeying,” says Lady Tracey Bond, innovator, co-creator of the DoubleOHHSevenEffect and spiritual author.

What does it mean to see 1111?

When you see 1111 — a time, on a piece of paper, on a license plate, a phone number, on a sign, etc. — angels are trying to tell you something. It’s time to connect with your intuition. Whether your life is about to change for the better or it’s signaling you to take action for a positive outcome, have faith. A good transformation is near.” ~ https://www.womansday.com/life/a39779218/1111-meaning-numerology/

So, it’s 11/11…. About our Angels and our courageous Veterans. Who in my heart, our Veterans are our Angels!

Thank you so much to all the Veterans who served our country! Your bravery and commitment speak volumes and there aren’t enough wonderful words to express the ongoing appreciation, respect and love that we have for you! ❤️

“Flying High… Huey Style!!”

Hey, hey, hey all you most fabulous people!! The sun is shining…. ’tis gorgeous outside and what a great day to be alive!! Hope you’re feeling those positive vibes and are making the best of this phenomenal moment!!

Wanted to share with you all something exciting that I got to experience a couple of weeks ago. I was at an AOPA event (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association) where small aircrafts were put on display to help educate the public in regards to general aviation. Small aircrafts such as planes and helicopters were proudly showcased, and we wouldn’t dare leave out one of my faves that was also at the event….. the Huey!!! The Friends of Army Aviation-Ozark (FAA-O) was the organization there offering Huey rides.

I had the amazing opportunity to meet many people from the organization. They were such a great group, extremely personable with a wealth of aviation knowledge and when they offered me a ride up in the Huey, I immediately accepted without any hesitation! As I’m always saying…. “No Fear!” 

After a brief orientation on the importance of safety and how the flight would go, the small group that I was with boarded the helicopter. Once the Huey’s crew safely made sure we were all secured, the helicopter began to take flight. Yes, the helicopter was loud as the propeller roared above, but I have to be honest with you, it was still such a peaceful ride. It lasted around ten – twelve minutes. The view from the Huey to down below was ever so breathtaking as we neared the beautiful Gulf Coast. The sun beamed on the water causing bright reflections in the waves. Of course, I took several photos and even a short video to capture the moment the best that I could.

The flight gave me all the more respect for our brave soldiers who proudly serve in the military, for without them, we as civilians wouldn’t get to experience life with the freedom that we’re bestowed.

 

So, I’m taking this moment (and in honor of Veterans Day which is in two days here in the United States) to say a BIG THANK YOU to our military for all that you do!!! You are loved and respected in so many ways!!!

 

Below are photos, including a video that I took from the awesome Huey ride!!!

Have a great weekend, everyone!!

 

Love & Light,

Remember the Fallen

It’s Memorial Day weekend here in the United States and I want to take this moment to wish you all a safe and blessed weekend!

However, not just this weekend, but every single day we should continue to remember the brave men and women who serve our proud country, for without them, we wouldn’t be as strong as we are. So, a brief moment in silence for the ones who have fallen during their time of duty. May they forever be remembered, respected and loved!

In honor of them, much love and light!

Also, this weekend there is a subtropical storm brewing in the Gulf of Mexico, Alberto, the first storm of the season. It’s heading north to the Gulf Coast area and is expected to make landfall late Monday or early Tuesday. According to the Weather Channel, “The main concern will be heavy rain over parts of Cuba, Florida, and the Southeast.”

My family and I live on the beautiful Gulf Coast in Alabama. Where we are, they project that we will get heavy rain, but as of right now the sun is shining high in the sky and we are going to make the best of the weekend. And I hope you all do the same! If you’re on the Gulf Coast as well, please be mindful of the impending weather and be safe!

Again, it’s Memorial Day weekend! Let’s remember and honor our courageous military who proudly served and sacrificed their lives for our country! Forever in our hearts will they remain!!
