THAT SEPTEMBER DAY

THAT SEPTEMBER DAY. IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER NOT JUST ONE DAY.

I took a song I was writing. Words and feelings. Took couple pictures I had awhile back. And put it together 💜💜💜🤗🤗🤗

I figured i would share my heart through song, writing, photography and above all my love.

May you find comfort and peace everyday. You are loved. We all matter.

With love 💜Jackie Hall

BLESSED ALWAYS

I am blessed another day. To wake up and do what I am destined to do. Wherever the journey takes.

Everyday is a blessing no matter the circumstances. My pain, discomfort, trials and experiences are still there. Yet, I am becoming a better version . I am loving me more. I am accepting and moving forward.

Blessed to have support, love, guidance, family, friends, amazing spouse, challenges, food, clothing, shelter, light, gospel, talents, trials, gifts, service, and wisdom.

Stop and see your blessings. Not when tragedy hits. Not when goodness is around or an answered prayer. Stop. Listen. Look. Feel. Count your blessings. Everywhere. Every second. Every day. Within you. Around you. What you’re going through. Within each other. You are each others blessing. You have a purpose.

SEE THE SUNSHINE

Whether it’s the close of the day or the beginning of a new . Know that you’re enough.

Whatever you are facing, you’ll overcome. What trials you are or will endure, are for a short time.

I don’t have answers, only what my heart feels. There’s days where my heart breaks. Then days where it’s full of joy. When I feel I’m not good at work, a mother, wife, daughter , sister, friend or really anything.

Then I see the potential and light within. I share that light which uplifts another. Using my words, music, voice, art, photography, or a helping hand in anyway I can.

You are enough. Wherever you may be, say that to yourself. Let yourself feel joy, sadness, anger or peace. Work in progress we are. God made us . He wants us to become a better version than what we are able to see or comprehend.

Know my heart is for all. My emotions are real. My words are my thoughts and feelings. My talents are to uplift and inspire. I share because I am growing. I care because I love. I learn because I want to be better.
Each of us have so much blessings and gifts, that the world would be so boring if we were all the same.

Look, learn, love, grow, feel, support, Express, care, notice, recognize, forgive, endure and notice yourself and each other. Shine the light in all circumstances.

Trials Build You Up

As I take a moment to reflect all that I have been through and all I am going through, I truly am blessed.

Some may say ” Why would you be happy of the challenges you’ve endured?

Because they turned out to be even more blessings. Having challenges since birth, being adopted, fighting through depression, anxiety, bullying, self-confidence, 2 hard and abusive marriages, and numerous health issues. Failed acdf surgery, 9 surgeries which leaves pain, scar tissue, and more health issues.

I became stronger. All these lead me to help others in their relationships. To have empathy for those with type 2 diabetes, cervical stenosis, depression, anxiety, stage fright, neurapathy and more. Yes, I battle daily with pain, discomfort, highs and lows. Dropping things, restless nights, tears, sadness, and more. But I still smile. I am stronger each day.

Do you know I am still capable with all I have physically and emotionally going on, but the trials my loved ones are going through, the ability to still manage my life.

I have an incredible husband who is so strong, romantic, so loving to his kids and myself and others. Hardworking as a powerlineman working on his journeyman. So spiritual and funny. He truly is my best friend. Through all struggles and we both had 2 bad marriages, he was a single father that has blessed me to become a stepmother and friend to a 8yr princess ( daddy’s girl) and a 19 yr old young man . I’ll never ever replace their mothers but I will continue to love and support as they are my own.

Blended families are a challenge but such a blessing. Same as being adopted. My trial gave me 2 amazing parents and had 9 kids and adopted my twin sister and I and 2 brothers. Family forever. Unselfish, enduring love. So yes, I’m grateful for the foster care to lead me to a forever home.

The talents of singing, lyric writing, photography, art, crafts and more lead me to others to uplift, understand and love. Fighting my stage fright and coming out of my shell. Yes, the trials, bullying and low self esteem have led me to increased blessings. I’m finding my outlit and rising and doing all that I love.

Schooling to be able to go to college at 36 and a beautiful job from home where I can get my degree in family science to help others. To fulfill a long time dream. And to be blessed to work from home, be a mom, and love my husband more. To help provide while he seeks another lineman job from being laid off.

Yes physically, emotionally, financially challenges come upon us. In our own life, family, friends and those all around. So why do I smile and thank God for all my circumstances, even when I desperately want them gone at times? Because I am beautiful. I am talented I am strong. I emphasize, love, bring laughter, tears, heart, soul and upliftment to myself, my husband, my family and all those I can. That’s the beauty of it. To be there. To uplift and inspire. Serve others. Know the pain and go through emotions with whoever. Be an example.

Why I love life . Family is everything. We are all beautiful and family. We have so much to offer .

Take your trials and just ponder and see all the work and service you can do too. Not easy but oh so wonderful.

Keep shining and smiling. Know you’re loved and prayed for
