About Me

Hello Friends, I'm Carole West

One of the simplest people you will ever encounter and I'm definitely not new to the blogging world.

You may remember me from my retired blog, Garden Up Green or perhaps we have met in real life?

Since retiring that blog and stepping away from freelance writing I decided to slow down and get out more.  This isn't always easy, but I was basically pushed to interact and observe what's happening around me.  

It's been an interesting journey and I still find that a walk-in nature is the best way to really understand what is real and what is not. 

So, why did I return to blogging?  Among other things, I love to write, always have and missed the beauty of putting words together.  When you have a creative spirit, offering an outlet for that gift is healthy. 

I'm at a place in life where I recognize my weaknesses and see my gifts as a blessing. I don't want to waste them so here I am. 

This time around, I've decided to direct my writing down a broader path that is focused on seeing the good. It's my hope to offer a glance as to what that looks like through optimistic eyes. 

Fragments of me will appear in my posts because it's our activity that makes us who we are. Perhaps what makes me unique is that I'm more intent on where God is leading. 

So, I'm not going to bore you with my resume. I will say, living in East Texas has been one of the best decisions my husband, Robert and I made for this next chapter, we call life.

It's my hope you read along, find encouragement and begin to see the good in a way that maybe you have missed.
