A face without freckles is like a night without stars...

Starr is me, I am her, and she is I. She is so much more than she thinks she is. If you asked her, she would say she is just a mom, wife, daughter, sister, and friend. However, she has been told many times, that she is more than that. Her loving Heavenly Father reminds her all the time, that she has gifts and talents to share with the world, and that like unto her name, she should let them so shine before others, that they may light the day, like the stars light the night. She is passionate, loyal, and gentle all at the same time.

Often when people see her they don't see a gentle, quiet and fragile woman; however, they are wrong. Deep down inside that's who she is, and only those who are truly looking, will see who she really is. If you happen to make it through her exosphere, consider yourself to be a blessed individual. Not many make it there, but when they do, they have a permanent place. Her caring ways, allow her to see things in the world a bit differently than others, unique to a fault.

She truly sees through a darkened glass, and can see beyond the darkness, and find hope throughout the world. Beyond her large, thick exterior are gems within her that are priceless, that are only valued on a spiritual level. Buried within the layers of her atmosphere are different pieces of her puzzle, and even she has yet to put all of the pieces into place. May you enjoy each piece she writes; they truly are the picture into her puzzle.

My Children

I am the mama of two all encompassing children, who own every ounce of my heart and soul, even the part their dad holds onto gets kicked out at times when one of the two does something magical to melt my heart. LillyRose is our precious big girl now, who is a whopping 6 years old! From the moment she wakes in the morning until her head hits the pillow at night in one way or another she reminds us that she holds a status the rest of us don't: Miss Diva Wildfire. Her independent nature, and natural ability to question the world around her has given her the actual gift of life, as every family member knew when she was born at 2lbs 6oz, a fighter since the day she was born.

Our son Abraham Jr. is our love bug. He has eyes that melt every inch of any woman's soul, Look out Ladies! At 5 years old, he is such a smarty pants and I LOVE it! His father recently said he had a genius on his hands, I didn't dispute him or his shining pride I felt emanating from his smile. My son is like the coals beneath a beautiful fire, and often times these parts of his personality help me through my days and "ignite my own fires within myself." Like his sister he too came into this world a fighter at 3lbs 6oz, and his tantrums prove to us that life wouldn't be as interesting without him.

My Children "run" the show, even though we would never admit that to them! That would result in utter defeat in our battle of parenthood. Our days revolve around their schedules, routines, likes, dislikes and even the amount of dishes in the sink when mommy has friends over! My oh my! ;) Together they make up the valves within our hearts, and are the blood circulating through our veins. We are extremely blessed to be their parents and though parenthood has tested us in ways we never imagined, I know we'd be lost without it.

Rare Hidden Gems of Exceptionality

If we looked inside one another's heads and viewed the thoughts they felt about themselves, what kind of movie would we be watching? How would we feel about who they are based upon the reel of thoughts they felt on a daily basis? Hopefully, we would see a beautiful flick that showed love, joy and happiness!

How often do we treat ourselves as though we are the main "Star" of the movie? For me, I always felt as though I was being selfish if I focused on what my desires, dreams and needs were. When you're flying in an airplane, the safety speech goes something like this: "If there is an emergency and the cabin loses oxygen, please place your own mask on first before assisting anyone else." I always felt it was more important to help other's with their masks prior to my own, not understanding that if I was to pass out, I would be of assistance to no one!

Part of this thinking came from years of programming that I was taught as a young girl. I'm not playing the blame game in regards to this programming, but what I recognize is that I learned this along my path as a young girl, and I can also reprogram myself to think in a better light. A light that aligns with balance and love; a light that better represents how I feel about myself in the present, rather than continuing to listen to the old programming that no longer serves a purpose in my life. As I have learned before, saying these things is much easier than practicing them, however, if we consciously make the decision in our lives to live a certain way, it then becomes part of our purpose in life, and we want to actively live in the new way that we set out for ourselves.

If your anything like me, wanting to do something is very different than having to do something. The ideas, things or people we WANT in our lives, we find a way to keep in our lives. However, when we HAVE to do something, it's like we all of a sudden we forget, can't find time, or just don't actively think about the ideas that are placed into our minds. If we want an idea to remain with us, we find a way to prioritize it, and allow it to take root within our mind, and when it takes root, subconsciously, we create new pathways for change!

I had fun creating this video of a time in my life where I felt powerful, happy and aware of who I am. I hope you enjoy and gain value from these words, and this video!

Light and Love,
