Say Hello to Angie!


Maggie at JUST BETWEEN ME AND YOU asked me if I would willing to share a bit about myself.

ummmmmmmmmm...a bit?

Anyone that knows me knows I can ramble on and on and on and on! lol

I'll try to keep this short and sweet.

Not promising though.

Of course if I was walking in these shoes I definitely wouldn't be strolling very long!


Well let's get started shall we and let me do some shakin up!
I'm 46 years old.

Don't mind sharing my age.

I'm married.

A miracle I'm still married.

I'm serious when I say this too!


Wasn't the blushing bride~!

Met hubby when I was 18.

Moved him in 6 months later.

Ya..I did,lol.

Married when I was 23 years of age.


Have two toy poodles.
Tigger Tobias.

Winnie Emmanual.

I'm not always smiling at my dogs like she does.

Mine have a terrible habit of peeing EVERYWHERE in my house.

Let's get off this topic now or like Maggie's visitor that comes to her place "Ms Pearl", a quite close relative of her's visits me quite often also.


We have three children.

Randan, Asher and Shaneah.
Oldest going on 21.
Youngest son 17.
The baby girl, going to be 14.
You do understand don't you what this means?
Thank God He helps us!


I run a home daycare.

Free Spirit Home Daycare.
Been doing this now for 20 years.
I love it!

People keep asking me how can I be around children all the time.
This is my answer:
What job will you have that every day your told:

Oh Miss Angie, your so beautiful. (even when I have curlers in my hair).
Oh Miss Angie, your my best friend.
Miss Angie, your doing a great job!
A job where I am smothered in more love, kisses and hugs, than boogies, poop and food particles.

I've started to blog on October 20, 2008.
The name came about from an msn group I had for close to 8 years.

Free Spirit Haven.
There was about 256 members at one time.
Msn closed all the groups down in February 2009.
Before opening up my own blog I was a 'lurker', 'drooler', 'stalker?' of blogs. I adored visiting blogs and envisioning one day having my own.
It's been such a blessing.
The relationships that have been formed.
Friendships that have grown.


As I have 'sat' with each of you while visiting your blogs, I've found encouragement, inspiration, love, joy, tears, laughter and so much more!
I'm a blessed woman by our paths touching one another.
So thank you dear Maggie for allowing me to share a bit of me with your follwers.
Please know your always...


to come and stop on by!  Free Spirit Haven

Blessings dear ones!


Thank you so much Angie for doing such a wonderful story for all us to enjoy. Also I can not thank all of you enough for all the wonderful lovely get well wishesand prayers  that you have been sending my way. It really has made a difference to this ole grandma.getting well faster...God truly blessed me the day I found all of you! Thank goodness I have all of you in my life....and I love you all dearly.

I promise I am not over doing it. The doctors will not release me for work until I go back on the 11th so that gives me plenty of rest time. Slowly but surely I will catch up with all of you.

Love to all

Maggie, I'm so glad you are back with us, a little at least. Girl, can you change professions to one less dangerous. A bouncer maybe????

Good to see you spending some time here; take it easy, okay? (I suspect that's not in your nature, right?)


Angela said...

I was wondering about the comments I was receiving on my Rednesday post. Headed over from Maggie? What were they talking about? LOL..

And again, thank you thank you thank you for this 'spotlight'. I do hope my make up doesn't run with all this Love ya girl.

bunny said...

I know Angie...we have the same interests...except not so much the day care..
She's a very happy gal and if you watch her videos you'll fall asleep, not because it's boring, it's because her voice is so soothing.

Maggie...glad your resting and also glad that John Deere doesn't make a model with a chaise lounge on it otherwise you'd be on it. Stay put and rest and let the ranch hands do all the work...


Cat Nap Inn Primitives said...

Smart Drs! Otherwise, I can see you going full steam, regardless of the accident. Take good care ... put your feet up ... enjoy the day.

Have a blessed Mother's Day.
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

I like Angie, she's got a lot of spunk! I better go over and check out her blog. She keeps it real, that's for sure.

Glad to hear that you are doing better. Keep doing what the doctor says and get better.

I just wanted to come by this morning to thank all of you that have read my 'story'. Your sweet comments have blessed my heart, and those of you that have come to visit me at my blog have truly warmed my heart.

It's SO amazing how many of us will never meet face to face here on this earth, but I sense our hearts have truly connected more strongly than if we did.
