No matter how much I wish this day would never come, it always does! Goodbye Daylight Saving Time! Hello, cold, dark world! I’ll miss you. Come back soon! 💔😢💔
I am SO excited to see my friend, Mandy Harvey on America’s Got Talent! I have been to several of her concerts and events through the Invisible Disabilities Association. She is AMAZING! Her voice gives me chills, with her incredible, unique tone.
I have been so blessed to spend time with her over the years, not only because of her voice, but because of who she is as a person. Mandy has a passion to encourage people to never give up, keep trying and believe in yourself.
She is simply has it all. She has a spectacular voice, story of perserverance, inspirational message, adorable personality and exquisit beauty.

I am so very proud of you, Mandy! You are going to take this world by storm!I love you, Miss Mandy!
Mandy lost her hearing due to a connective tissue disorder when she was 18. She was a music major, so this loss was devastating! Mandy wasn’t sure what to do next, but her father encouraged her to pursue her singing career anyway. Today, she works very hard every day to keep her voice in shape and in tune. Mandy has produced three CD’s and has performed for many prestigious venues.
This ballad was created to bring awareness, encouragement and hope to millions who live with illness, pain and injury around the world, in honor of the Invisible Disabilities Association‘s program, Invisible No More!®. Nonetheless, “Together” inspires us all to be more empathetic and supportive with one another.

After the film, Mandy shared a newer original song, “This Time.” Mandy choked back some tears in the beginning, after such an emotional film beforehand. Nevertheless, this easy going song wrapped up her passion to keep “moving on” and chase her dreams.
9/12/2017 2nd Semi-Finals Show: Mandy Harvey you were AMAZING! I just knew you were going to sing, “Release Me!” It was absolutely STUNNING! I am so thrilled that Simon gets it and he put it all into words so beautifully.

That is exactly what you wanted to hear!

9/27/2017 Outdoor Concert: We were so excited to see our friend, Mandy Harvey, at an outdoor concert! Wowee! What a fun block party with Mandy! I only made it through half her concert (I have MS and Late-Lyme Disease). I also had a major reaction to heat and air fresheners inside the building. Still, it was such a treat to see her again! I got to hear two of my favorites, “Cry Me a River” and her original, “Release Me!”
But don’t tell anyone … but we got to go backstage and get hugs! I have missed you so much, Mandy! More Details.
8/22/2017 Quarter Finals: Mandy has an unique, angelic voice that was born out of talent, perseverance and hard work. The performance of her original song, “Mara’s song” was ethereal, haunting and beautiful! There is no denying, she is gorgeous inside and out. And her inspirational message of hope encourages everyone to make a difference in someone else’s life. She has it all!
6/7/2017 AGT Audition: We are so proud of Mandy Harvey! Mandy made her debut on America’s Got Talent last night with her original song, “Try.” This song was inspired by Mandy’s struggle to start writing and singing again after losing her hearing. She was afraid. Nonetheless, with the encouragement of her parents and Eric Weihenmayer of No Barriers, Mandy decided to “Try.” And now she encourages others to “Try” despite their fears of failure.
Mandy’s beautiful voice, spirit and message to never give up came beaming right through the hearts of people around the world. The judges and audience were on their feet cheering for Mandy and Simon Cowell gave her the #goldenbuzzer! Simon had sworn he would not use his golden buzzer right away, but he knew Mandy was the one! He was so taken back by her amazing story, but he was most impressed by the incredible tone of her voice! As a result, she is #1 trending on YouTube with over 2,000,000 views and soaring!
LOOK what I found (first photo). Because of my glasses prescription, I always have to buy 2 or 3 pairs of VERY expensive glasses and that does not include sunglasses.
Today I found these and ordered them! Safari Sherri is ready for Spring!
My precious little one, you were such a joy! Who gets excited over celery, but you? I miss your tail wagging every morning and your “dance” before you get to eat your favorite foods, go outside, play with your toys or when we come home from being out a bit!
Most of all, I just miss having you by my side to love and talk to. It is so quiet and lonely here without you!
I love you little monkey!
I miss you my sweet, smarty pants! I am so lost without you by my side every day!
I love you, little monkey!
Chip and Joanna Gaines are a nice, easy-going couple who live in Waco, Texas. They are a dynamic duo, as she is a designer, he is a general contractor and they are the owners of the Magnolia Market. Their lives were busy before, but now it has exploded into the limelight as the Hosts of the hit TV show, Fixer Upper on HGTV!
People are flocking around this couple and are thoroughly enthralled with this show! But why did America fall in love with Chip and Joanna? What makes them so special?
Well, in addition to their undeniable talent and work ethics, they are open, real and giving souls who love one another, their family and people. Chip and Jojo strive to help others, have integrity and have fun!
“There are so many inspiring qualities in Chip and Joanna Gaines. They are truly a couple worth admiring. The world needs more bright-shining beacons of hope like Chip and Joanna Gaines. And America could use more wholesome family shows like Fixer Upper!” RAZC.
The Gaines’ give great hope to us all, that there are still people out there who are not full of anger, criticism and hate. And they are role models for all of us who are married, as they endeavor to build their marriage on love, respect and quality time together!
Their adoration for one another as they banter back and forth in an playful way, is refreshing and delightful. Even with their recent fame and fortune as stars of this incredibly popular television show, Chip and Joanna remain humble and live a very nice life on a farm, that is not full of ego and opulence.
“In a world obsessed with portraying a picture-perfect image and putting on a show, the Gaines strive to be authentic and genuine. And as many Magnolia clients will attest, the Gaines are the same people in real-life, and on TV” RAZC.
Chip and Joanna are not perfect. I hate to break it to you, but nobody is. And they will be the first to tell you that. Nonetheless, their lives are built on the simple principles of loving one another, family and others. Thus, it should be no surprise to us that they get these principles from their faith and walk with God.
In this world today, it is easy to become bitter, angry and selfish humans who focus on material success, accolades and step on whomever gets in our way. Chip and Jojo are doing their best to follow God’s Word and that is not a bad thing, people. It is a good thing! All that is good in this universe is from God.
Thank you, Chip and Joanna, for stepping into our lives and reminding us that there are still people on this earth who live their lives to care for one another, their family and others. Though most of us do not have a platform such as being on a television show, we can all set a stage in the show of our own lives. And we can choose to set that stage with love, sincerity and compassion.
