First I will say thank you to Oprah. Thank you for being there for me and so many others over the last 25 years. You may not have known what kind of impact you had on my life. You may not realize that you kept me company when I was a stay at home Mom with three little ones. You may not know that you helped to dry my tears of fear, frustration and created tears of happiness. You made me laugh, you made me feel warm and fuzzy and you inspired me over and over again. You may not have granted my ultimate dream of a new smile, but you gave me hope that it could happen. I will miss you coming into my living room each day, but I look forward to your magazine each month, the newsletters coming into my in box each day and seeing where OWN goes. So once again, THANK YOU!

Now on to my Pinterest post, which is also doubles as a continuation of a Semi Wordless Wednesday Post. I am simply in love with this site. I discovered it via my friends over on Twitter. It is like online scrap booking. I have shared in the past how I cut out pictures that I find beautiful or inspiring and tape them into a "dream journal" , well this is so much easier. All I have to do is click the "pin it" in my tool bar and assign where I want a picture I want from just about anywhere on the web onto my pages. I can also see what others have pinned on the site ( if I follow them or one of my friends do) and I can re-pin. So thought I would share just a small sampling ......you can see more here.
