Make a new blog friend today!

Happy Monday, Peeps!

Thanks so much for stopping by my new blog. Hope you all had a spectacular, restful weekend! And a belated Happy Mother's Day to all you blessed mothers out there. For those of you, myself included, who could use a few words of encouragement and wisdom from time to time, here's my list of favorite motivational quotes for this week:

A cheerful heart is good medicine…- Proverbs 17:22

Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect. It means you have decided to look beyond the
imperfections.  --Author Unknown

Count your blessings, not your burdens - Author Unknown

Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.~Jesus
Happiness is never stopping to think if you are.  ~Palmer Sondreal

The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.  ~Mark Twain

Nobody really cares if you're miserable, so you might as well be happy.  ~Cynthia Nelms

Our most empowering moments often arise after our most difficult setbacks  -Ryan Biddulph

On the topic of counting my blessings, I'm so thankful for life, love, health and family, especially my blessed son. I'm also thankful that my Kindle book Think & Be Happy: 365 Empowering Thoughts to Lift Your Spirit made the Amazon Kindle Top 100 Bestseller list in Meditations. Thank you, everyone!

On other news, I'm thankful to have stumbled upon this really awesome blog by Lisa Sanchez "Meet an author Monday" is the topic today.

Here's how it works:


Follow as many authors as you like. Just follow the Linky list and hop from author to author. The idea is to find as many "new to you" authors as you can, and hopefully some great new reading material as well. Leave a comment as you hop from blog to blog! We'd love to chat with you!


Follow the Meet an author Monday host (Cali Cheer Mom) along with any of the wonderfully talented authors on the list.

You will need to enter your name and blog url into the Linky tool.

Grab our super cute button and place it in a post. (THIS IS IMPORTANT!) If you don't create a post for the hop, your readers won't have a place to comment, and the hop will stop with you. So create a post, paste in the Linky code and start hopping!

The purpose of the hop is to meet "new to you" authors and discover great new reads. Follow as many authors as you can. Leave a comment and introduce yourself!

If you'd like to share the Linky list in a post on your blog ( Please do!) just follow the link and grab the code.
