In Love With Life

Updated on August 26, 2017
Rosa Ann Crowder profile image

I grew up in a small town called Whitesburg, Georgia. As a poor Woodard girl, I had to make my own living and opportunities.

I am an Optimistic Person

I am always a dreamer. I am a deep thinker with incredible powers of observation. I love to create. I am a poet at heart. I am a lover of truth, wisdom, knowledge and random acts of kindness. I love being a woman... I believe in chivalry. Godly with a little bad girl edge. I am gifted as a decorator, a writer, transparency, and expressionism. I am an admirer of beauty, art, music, literature and poetry. I love to be moved, to feel, to express and a movie that makes me think. I love challenges and stretching my abilities.

I love the morning sun rises and the last of the rays of light stretching from the horizon and looking upwards at the blue-black sky with the first of the evening stars preparing to take their place. I love God, His Word, His mercy, His grace and His love. I love that God has His hand in my life, engineering and building something from an idea in my head...

I love front porch swings. I love my morning coffee and evening hot green tea. I love the sound of rain and the beauty of a rainbow. I love complex over simple. I love architecture, antique furniture, refinishing furniture, decorating, textures and the color of red. I like to wear high heels, cool boots, and skirts and big cotton t-shirts. I love nature, the mountains, water and the ocean. I love to explore, but sometimes comfortable silence is welcomed…..

Love Like You Will Never Be Hurt

Type of Woman

I am the type of woman

That can portray happiness

Even when I am defeated

In spite of everything else

I look at you and smile

I am the kind of woman

Eager to improve society

Even if I get overwhelmed

In the differences of morality

I look at you and smile

I am the kind of woman

Courageous enough to be brave

Even if I get intelligently routed

In the midst I know to behave

I look at you and smile

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

— Audrey Hepburn

The Storms of My Life

Here I am traveling through time

Trying to make my life rhyme

Leafing through and trumping it up

New skills that I try to develop

The storms of life that I embrace

As the jigsaw puzzle falls into place

My habits take over my existence

Making my life more intense

Gambling with love and fortune

There will not be a distraction

Trying not to get ahead of myself

Slowing down to take a ride on a raft

Troubled waters do not last forever

The storms of life make me brighter

What's in Your Deck of Cards?

My life is like a deck of cards
I’m the dealer of my hand
I set my rules you know
It’s not the average brand
I am seeking better rewards
Better than a television show
I must play my hand very well
This heart can no longer be hurt
My diamonds are not for sale
This club is not a game of chess
A spade to dig through my dessert
I will not settle for anything less

To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.

— Gilbert K. Chesterton

My Quotes

“Life is amazing! To take care of yourself physically, spiritually and emotionally is the best gift you can give yourself and those who love you.”

“When I have a lot on my plate, I call it a blue plate special. In my younger days, a lot on my plate was all right; I had a big appetite and a lot of energy. Nowadays, as an older lady, a lot on my plate isn’t that wise.”

“Do not be a false friend. Always be kind and thoughtful. You have the power to bless as well as to curse. Choose your words carefully. Things have a way of coming back around to us.”

"I keep my head, heels, and standards high. I am fun, single, amazing like a breath of fresh air, crazy like a fox, smart as a whip, nothing but the truth (not bragging just facts), the girl next door with a twist."

“Life is not a bed of roses. There will always be thorns. It is our attitude, how we land on our feet and how to hit the curve balls and the fastballs that life pitches.”

"When we become grandparents, we get in touch with our inter-child, that is what makes us awesome grandparents.”

“You are the author of your life. You cannot erase your mistakes. You can only learn from them.”

“Love your life, Be Powerful, Be Beautiful, Be free, Be Wonderful, Be Magical, Be You. You are not your mistakes, and you have made a few. Love your life. Be where you want to be. “

"Alcohol, as with any medicine; you risk addiction, serious illness, and potential death. Alcohol is no different and should be respected like any other drug…drink responsibly, and I will drink to that.”

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.

— Steve Jobs

Be in Love With Your Life - Every Minute of it

To say you need a vacation from your daily life is ridiculous; because we take all the baggage with us. The secret is to live a life worth living, seek happiness, and boycott all that is dragging you down. I have learned not to let anyone or anything suck the joy out of me.

Failure is not an Option

I think the definition of failure is not having passion, settling for average, and being too afraid to take chances.

I have disciplined myself to examine my thoughts and behavior and relentlessly toss anything that is hindering me from being my best, most glitzy self. It’s a joyful process of self-discovery, but it also requires commitment and tremendous guts.

“Love is absolute loyalty. People fade, looks fade, but loyalty never fades. You can depend so much on certain people; you can set your watch by them. And that’s love, even if it doesn’t seem very exciting.”

— Sylvester Stallone
