A Classic

Standard

As a youngster I had the durable Barbie townhouse that included an elevator that rode my dolls up and down the floors of their multiple shared home.

When my mother was a youngster she had the original Barbie dream house which wonderfully and temporarily came back on the market through Mattel.

The item was priced at 100.00 which in my opinion is a reasonable amount for a top quality 1962 reproduction that includes a version of the vintage Barbie doll.

My mother had shared with me years ago the details of the fun she had playing with the dream house that was made of thick strong cardboard and that folded into a suitcase for convenient storage.

Now I actually get to experience a piece of that nostalgia for a collector’s item as I anticipated purchasing me the classic “Barbie Dream House” from the online Mattel website after discovering its availability last year.

When I recently went to finally buy the product from Mattel the item no longer was available luckily I was able to order the 1962 Dream house from Toys R Us online website and it will be arriving to my home within a few days!

The product is also available at Wal-Mart online for  $99.99

In reply to Lana Jenkins.

Thank you, that was very kind and so sweet of you.

Yes, the double veil goes as far back as the seventh sister of a seventh daughter us old souls know about these things especially first-hand.

I enjoy writing on both my blogs when spirit moves me with that natural energy to write automatically. It allows me to use my creativity and talents within the most honest way at the same time connecting with the beauty of the universe, there is actual power in my writing and someone else even noticed it a while back.

They wrote to me and said “There is power in your sentences”. So certain people can see it.

Inner Voice

Standard

Spirit is and has constantly been there for me. Spirit has never let me down and that is so amazing to me. And it is so astonishing because although that I have tremendous faith in what I know and believe still I never take anything for granted and I think that is why I continue to be carried so securely by spirit.

The celestial support that I unceasingly receive is very touching and so much appreciated and it is also additionally grounding. I naturally and genuinely treasure what is surrounding me and as I am in harmony and in balance with the quintessence of my existence, the alignment of my dimensional position within the universe that is in relation to inclination, I thrive.

The peace that is around me is so wonderful.

I was always a positive individual that exuded positive energy and I always knew what was going to work for me and what wasn’t going to work out from a very early age because I always had a very strong sense of self. And as my energy was always good it was always the negative energies of others that would constantly interfere.

Just the simple condition of not being within the presence of certain types of people (especially undesirables) is so rejuvenating and liberating, and oh so very healthy for the mind, aura and spirit. That circumstance has consistently been a major factor to my happiness and well-being as a highly spiritual individual.

Everything is so clear, clean, and beautiful living in the compatible arrangement of my own preordained nature. A nature of authentic serenity that some of us are blessed with when we continue to choose and remain on the paths that are correct for us.

When we hear and listen to that inner voice of spirit it never guides us in the wrong direction we become one within distinction and within the truths of our lives and where we’re going.

Spirit helps us to make important decisions, gives us the confidence and courage to take risks and to make the most vital of changes that prove to all turn out for the better and I am a living testimony!

Love is so durable and I feel it all around me and I just love the love. Love makes us strong, love makes us powerful, and love makes us who we are! Love is not corny yet it is often underestimated and it is why spirit has us within the first place.

Without the love, care, and protection of the specific energies around those of us in particular we’d be lost and alone as long as we have the loves of the light we will prevail.

 

Another New Year

Standard

What’s in the cards for the New Year?

I can see the goodness that many of us with “open eyes” hope and call out for as the energy of the 2017 eclipse has already made some rapid positive changes and I am sure that I’m not the only one at all to have recognized these special events as they shall enter strongly and variously into the year 2018.

I’ve been busy with constant work not too much time for anything else but here and there time to rest and relax. Although I don’t traditionally celebrate Christmas I had a wonderful holiday weekend last week that I really enjoyed.

I look forward to continuing to live peacefully, healthily and spiritually within my own personal journey and I’ve been quite lucky and feeling very blessed good things continue to happen to us good people regardless of the evil that lurks within the world we’ll remain protected an unaffected as long as we believe and stay true to our own celestial nature.

On my way out to shop yesterday I checked my mailbox and received a nice letter from my place of work I guess the preview to the beginning of my New Year is making it’s entrance already!

A Family Affair

Standard

I have two more sets each of census  records (again of my mother’s mother side of the family) both listed from 1-80 as there are 1-35 pages (too many to post I’d be here all day that I gathered from Ancestry.com) each of family members that were recorded back in the year of 1940 (many family that are known to us and some that are not because we never met everybody within our lineage) and it is not a constantly repeated list of the same relatives they’re a list of different blood related people branched from the roots of our extremely large family tree there were literally thousands of us! There may be millions now with all of the possible children, grand, and great-grand children and so on.

It is so nice to communicate with our loved ones especially when we’re not even expecting it, they come at times to encourage, enlighten, acknowledge, inspire and protect.

I just had a dream the night before of one of my elder female relatives that came to give me a message of confirmation regarding how my aunt “Tina” Ernestine Lawrence was the one that originally initiated slander against my mother from the beginning years ago and how no one else within the family (on Catherine’s side of the family) had ever set out or even thought about doing anything of that nature as everyone of our other good relatives had nothing against my mother or any negative thoughts or intentions toward her we were just a normal regular family and it had made no sense. My mother knew that though, that it was all Tina from the get go and that other family had no part of that disgust. Tina was always an undesirable that was never well acquainted with the family she never even knew who most of the relatives were!

She was warm and completely honest in her connection with me as a reminder of how they all stick together (our unit) and how they’ll always have my back.

My elder relative just wanted me to know the truth in details-as they share with me so often concerning different circumstances and situations- out of love and benevolence because they are proud that I am naturally and genuinely carrying the torch for our family, a burning flame of authenticity and loyalty from through out the generations of those of us that are and that were innately set apart.

Second set of 1-40 of my relatives.

Second set of Census Records 41-80 of my relatives.

Third set of Census Records of 1-40 more of my relatives.

Third set of Census Records of 41-to 80 more of my family members.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Virginia

You said 3 months ago

Hello,

The last time I visited Virginia it was just passing through in the year 2001 as I was heading down to South Carolina with my father’s sister to meet some of their relatives in person during the Christmas holiday. Before then, in the year 1996 Virginia was one of the state’s that I traveled to with a family associate who had a job delivering shipments to different locations on those tractor trailers.

We ate down there at a fast food restaurant and the food tasted even fresher compared to New York where I am from. Virginia even looked so much cleaner than New York as did the other states we had visited. But Virginia has a special place in my heart because that’s where my family came from and they were all over from Halifax, Danville, Richmond to Chesapeake.

I at one time thought about maybe one day moving down there after I eventually retire but I am a native New Yorker and so use to the city I don’t ever want to leave New York.

Thank you for sharing I hope you’re enjoying your life down there. Maybe one day I’ll get to visit some of my distant relatives as most of my closest and most immediate ones have passed on now.
