Gifting My Heart Smiles


I just never know where a copy of My Heart Smiles will be headed next! And, for me, that really is one of the fun parts of being an author!

My weekend was amazing>AWESOME>INSPIRING! It started Friday with a fun-filled sassy road trip to Milwaukee with business colleagues …followed by a 3 hour lighthearted delightful Greek dinner on an outside patio lined with beautiful flowers and complimented by a warm summer evening breeze. Saturday was jam packed with incredibly supercharged training sessions! The cherry on this Saturday treat was that after the sessions, Colleen and I had the opportunity to meet and talk with the event’s two DYNAMIC World Ventures trainers! International Marketing Directors, Martin Ruof, from Minneapolis and Roscoe Taylor from Chicago!  And YES!  They loved their autographed copies of My Heart Smiles that we gave them!  Heart smiles everywhere!

Life is good…very very good!  And yup, our hearts are still smiling tonight!

What’s your story?

Hi, my name is Colleen O’Hara and I’m the illustrator of My Heart Smiles.  Today, as I sit in the living room, watching the rain fall and green up the yard, “Nature nuzzles me.”  It’s June 4 in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the lilacs have finally bloomed.  Lake Superior looms in the fore ground of the picture window, covered in a silvery mist. As the gardens drink from the sky the plants are “Nourished with Love”!  This is my normal!!! I am wishing you a “nifty” day!

My Nifty Nature Encounter

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged.  I guess just waiting for the right inspiration. TODAY I received a wink from the Universe!   UP MI chickadeeOMG!! THIS IS THE BEST DAY EVER!!!!!!!! This morning, I went out to feed the birds and while I was standing close to one of the feeders, a chickadee landed right at face level at the feeder. I wondered to myself… Could this be THE day? I put sunflower seeds in my hand, held it straight out and mentally talked to the birds letting them know it was ok to come into my energy field. It’s safe. It’s ok to land. You are welcome to take seeds from my hand…AND THEN, the beautiful little chickadee, flies out and lands on my hand, hangs onto my finger, and takes a seed and flies off to the cedar branch! I held my breath in Joy! YES, AND…It flew back, landed on my finger again and takes another another seed! This time it stayed, ate it, and then took another seed before flying off to a branch. Another chickadee is in the cedar tree watching all this. The next thing I know, the second chickadee flies in, holds onto my finger, walks up my finger, and eats a couple seeds too! Do you know how good it feels to feel the touch of a wild little bird’s foot holding onto your finger? Have you ever experienced the bliss of nature’s precious little bird walking up your hand? I will remember this day forever! My heart is blessed! Nature nuzzled me and I am nourished with love! Needless to say…my heart is full of humongous smiles on this Nifty day!
