As ye think, so shall ye become..”

October 15, 2017

A quiet disaster.

Is anyone there?

Have I always been the only one to long to see people?

I remember being the hostess. The “stop to rest” on the long road to somewhere else to visit someone else.

Does no one long for my kind disposition and my hilarious outlook on most of life. Does not my happiness and healing light bring anyone to reckon that they “need” to spend time with me?

Except, of course, strangers who cross my path and often say, “You are an angel”, I needed a dose of you”, “You are so wonderful.” I am glad for my life to has made a difference in the lives of some that we just touch hands as we pass. God put me here and there, and I am small in the perspective of God, but touching a heart touches my heart. Sincerely. I hope the Creator knows – I would love to meet Jesus – but when I am anything fine and wonderful, it is because I was created in His image. Imagine!

I have always made the effort and taken the time to nurture and love all those given to me to share life with, and those souls who’s lives are given to me for only a moment in time…

What have I done to feel so unloved? I think it is only me in the moment.

Does time steal not only health and youth, but does it keep dwindling us physically and mentally and within until that sweet day of demise? Why, I do believe it does.

It is all coming to fruition though I think I am still in the best of my mind. If I am honest, I often hear people say (and why wouldn’t you be?) – I may not be in the PRIME of my life, the PRIME of my health in this body, the PRIME of my wits…but TO ME…I AM. Still alive, still vibrant, I still feel beautiful (though I never thought I was really).

I learned today I can make a volcano with soda, vinegar and a large candle…that joy in learning this comes from the joy within – still vibrant and wild and young.

I went to see ROCKS today. “Rocks and gems”. The thing I love about rocks is they can be so terribly ugly outside, and filled with sparkly, lovely, light crystals! They can be spun round and be as smooth as anything you’ve ever felt, and still lovely – filled with light and color.

I keep thinking, “How can anyone think of the billions of rocks, all unique, and not believe in a creator? I just don’t understand. Perhaps that is where the saying comes into light; “Be still, and know that I am God.”

And I did. And I do.

trash-02trash-06trash-04Eyewitness Report from Polish Blogger on Italian-Austrian Border MANDATORY READING WITH PHOTOS
And these are the people Obama wants to bring to the U.S.?!! And on top of that over the objections of Homeland Security, the FBI and some of his national security advisors.

Lest we feel too sorry for them. Note all the donated food trashed and left behind.
Why do these muslims not go to another muslim country? Why should the west take care of them ? Where is Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq ,Bahrain, Qatar,??? They have tons of money and are Muslim brothers.
This may be a bad sign of things to come if all of this is true.
September 6, 2015 by TNO Staff— in Europe
An eye-witness account from Kamil Bulonis, a Polish travel blog writer, who was present on the Italian-Austrian border on September 5, 2015, as swarms of Third World nonwhites poured across the border to invade Austria and Germany (A translation from Polish): (Please note: all pictures from the Hungarian-Austrian border)

“Half an hour ago on the border between Italy and Austria I saw with my own eyes a great many immigrants … With all solidarity with people in difficult circumstances I have to say that what I saw arouses horror … This huge mass of people – sorry, that I’ll write this – but these are absolute savages … Vulgar, throwing bottles, shouting loudly “We want to Germany!” – and is Germany a paradise now?
I saw how they surrounded a car of an elderly Italian woman, pulled her by her hair out of the car and wanted to drive away in the car.
They tried to overturn the bus in I travelled myself with a group of others. They were throwing faeces at us, banging on the doors to force the driver to open them, spat at the windscreen … I ask for what purpose? How is this savagery to assimilate in Germany?
I felt for a moment like in a war … I really feel sorry for these people, but if they reached Poland – I do not think that they would get any understanding from us … We were waiting three hours at the border which ultimately could not cross.
Our whole group was transported back to Italy in a police-cordon. The bus is damaged, covered with faeces, scratched, with broken windows. And this is supposed to be an idea for demographics? These big powerful hordes of savages?
Among them there were virtually no women, no children—the vast majority were aggressive young men … Just yesterday, while reading about them on all the websites I subconsciously felt compassion, worried about their fate but today after what I saw I am just afraid and yet I am happy that they did not choose our country as their destination. We Poles are simply not ready to accept these people – neither culturally nor financially.
I do not know if anyone is ready. To the EU a pathology is marching which we had not yet a chance to ever see, and I am sorry if anyone gets offended by his entry …
I can add that cars arrived with humanitarian aid – mainly food and water and they were just overturning those cars …
Through megaphones the Austrians announced that there is permission for them to cross the border—they wanted to register them and let them go on—but they did not understand these messages. They did not understand anything.
And this was the greatest horror … For among those few thousand people nobody understood Italian or English, or German, or Russian, or Spanish … What mattered was fist law… They fought for permission to move on and they had this permission— but did not realize that they had it!
They opened the luggage hatches of a French bus—and everything that was inside was stolen within short time, some things left lying on the ground …
Never in my short life had I an opportunity to see such scenes and I feel that this is just the beginning.”

PUPPY

August 25, 2015

When I first got our new puppy, at 9 weeks old, our five year old was very jealous. She still may be at times, but she also loves Axel, and worries when he isn’t with us…I know dogs aren’t supposed to think like us, but since I broke my back (and before) I have spent 24/7 with my Dakota and the puppy.  They have wonderful emotions and understanding English too!

Back to the photo.  Axel is now 8 months old and they are inseparable.  This is how the puppy got to Dakota…..I call the photo “Bonding”.  I love this shot of Dakota.  She was never a mommy but she is a tender spirit.bonding

This seems to be a “non-hero” action by John McCain. A friend I trust sent me this.

July 22, 2015

I think our politicians and leaders are the only ones in the world who sell out their own Native people by selling our country out from all of us.  It does make me sick.  I love my country.

Katniss is real, and she is an Apache.11742702_840554335992441_9171768963361075980_n

While we were all looking the other way, sacred Apache land (that was also property of the American people as a whole) was sold to an Australian-British mining company that will soon have the rights to leave a 2-mile crater in the area. How did this happen? Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake slipped the deal in at the last minute at the bottom of a much-needed military defense spending bill. Apache have been camped out on the sacred site of Oak Flat ever since, and this young warrior, along with a handful of others, traveled to NYC all the way from Arizona to try to bring attention to her people’s plight.

Let’s help this story spread and let this real life rebel know that she is not alone, and that the American people won’t stand for this betrayal to us all.

Celebrate!

July 18, 2015

This is the moment!  CELEBRATE the moment as it is the only guaranteed thing we have.  That statement is not negative, but the truth.

I am not going to allow any media frenzy, personal problem, or anything – usurp the moments of the day.

I see wisps of clouds.  I see a blue sky.  I see these faces upon waking.  My darling husband has already left for work…as you can see, my 5 year old is trying to get past the puppy to say hello.  The puppy wants to be first!

Gosh, and my kiddos are grown with kiddos.  I loved having my kiddos home.  I love my doggies!

AM

Life is the best thing I’ve ever known!

And if you think I couldn’t be raging mad, enveloped with sadness and depression, or flat lined – you would be wrong.  It takes practice to be happy.

Pardon me, I have to go practice for the entire weekend.  NOW SMILE and LOVE YOURSELF by taking care of some “fun” stuff!  Blessings by the ton to you all from a perfect (well, I am far from perfect – hee-hee) stranger.

As my kids say, “I couldn’t be any stranger!”  Wow I found my funny bone this morning.  Yahoo.

Here is a bouquet for you!

Cherish your pets. They are gifts to us and are really great friends. They depend upon us. They are precious.

If something breaks don’t sweat it. Material things come and go. Our human counterparts are the “things” we must take care not to break with our words, or our actions.

bike

Material things can (and usually are) replaceable. Even if they are a cherished item that gets broken – just look in the eyes of the person you are upset with and remember words are like double-edged swords-they go directly to the heart. For women sometimes they remain there for years. It is sad, but true.

Here is the tip for the day. Don’t forget to pierce the potato your are going to bake. Just a few with a fork or small pokes with a paring knife. If you do that your potato won’t blow up! (I forgot!)

potatoPlease say a prayer for those who are homeless because they are just unable to do anything else – no matter what the reason.  If they are on drugs they need prayers.  If they are “takers” they need prayers.  If they have lost everything in a fire or flood – they need prayers.  Be generous with your prayers as we all need them and there is absolutely no charge to pray!  Remember with time and circumstance it could be any one of us in need.  Be grateful for every moment and every thing!

WOMAN

Create a beautiful day for you and your family and friends. Does anyone remember the song “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine…..”?

We all have that light within. Just prompt it to release in the form of a smile, a kind deed or word, or better yet, a great big hug.

Cherish yourself!  So often it takes years to really learn that one!  Somehow I felt cute as a button a few days ago, so I took my first selfie.  (heeheee ) Felt kind of silly, but I hope you can see the joy in my heart.   1st selfieIt still seems really TOO FUNNY to take and post a photo of myself – but I did it anyway!  Pheww! That’s off my bucket list now.  LOL  I know – must be a pretty dumb bucket list!

I can’t stand it.  I have to tell you.  I stood in front of a fan to have that wind blown look.  I don’t know why it still makes me laugh!  That is the silly child within me.

I send hugs and love and blessings to all my family and friends. I don’t take the time often enough to tell each one of you individually how much I love you – so here it is –

I love you! You KNOW who you are…now let’s have a giant air hug!

Robot kills

July 3, 2015

Don’t know if you read my post about the pace technology is accelerating at, but it was a bit thought-provoking for sure, and a bit frightening.

Found this and wanted to post it:

———————————

“A robot has killed a contractor at one of Volkswagen’s production plants in Germany, the automaker said Wednesday.

See also: A robot called Hadrian wants to build you a house in two days

The man died Monday at the plant in Baunatal, about 100 kilometers (62 miles) north of Frankfurt, VW spokesman Heiko Hillwig said.

The 22-year-old was part of a team that was setting up the stationary robot when it grabbed and crushed him against a metal plate

The 22-year-old was part of a team that was setting up the stationary robot when it grabbed and crushed him against a metal plate, Hillwig said.”

———————————

Now if that isn’t frightening, I don’t know what is!  The people in charge are dismayed because they don’t know who to hold responsible.  If you don’t mind digging a bit, you can read the post I wrote a while back. I will try to find it myself and re-post it.  We really needed something else to be worried about, eh?

I’m just saying…………..

No worries though, just override all the problems – just enjoy the moments of this day, and share love and kindness! These moments are all we have! Don’t think I’ll ever get a robot to clean my house or replace my dog!

Make it so!

June 29, 2015

This day is yours – CREATE a beautiful one for yourself and those around you.

THINK before you speak. Take a breath and it will spark your intellect.

Remember words are sharper than any knife and they pierce the heart.

Take THIS opportunity to tell someone you love or appreciate him or her.

Make these moments of value and the worth of your actions will ultimately return to benefit you!

It always works!

IMPORTANT! Vehicle recall. (Also a post regarding “Madmen”)

May 20, 2015

IMPORTANT: In case you didn’t know – there is a recall of millions of vehicles because the airbags are defective. If your vehicle is in the recall, the bags can blow up like a bomb and have actually killed 5 or 6 people thus far. It is easy to check your vehicle.

Go to safercar.gov and click in your vin number (or numbers). The process is short and may save your life or the lives of someone in your family. Share this information. We need to channel important things “between” the people we love and know. I had a friend seriously injured by an airbag blowing up so I urge you to take a minute to do this. Be safe and have a wonderful day!

————————————————————-

Regarding the television show MADMEN.  The only reason I am posting this is to actually write a post from someone who lived in the sixties as a single woman.

I heard an excerpt from a post declaring that single women were better off in the same time Madmen was portrayed. That is a comment from someone who never lived the time.
It was a horrible time for both the married and single women I knew. Husband’s were drinking like fish at office parties and martini lunches, and cheating on their wives with every other breath they took. Hmmm.  Just like on the show.
Women who were married were “the little woman”. They were someone capable of cleaning and cooking and looking nice when the husband had friends over for dinner and drinks. They were never asked to office Christmas parties or any business conventions, for sure. They just cleaned and took care of the children..which was declared “an easy job” by most men.  My father-in-law (married 55 years) still calls his wife his slave – and to her face!
I was a single woman during that time and it seemed all I did was work, care for my young son, and then secretly hope some handsome man would walk into my life and sweep me off my feet. That happened a couple of times.
The first was a good-looking single guy and we dated for quite sometime. We always had a great time, but he did two things that caused me to break off the relationship. First he was very impatient with my year old son. I saw him jerk his hand. That was enough for me, but he also kept getting uglier as we dated. He was so particular about his looks. Fair enough, but he was getting more and more tied up with how handsome he was. Vane men are a real turnoff for me.
The second man tells the truth about Madmen. It was a lesson hard learned. A handsome sales man came into the entry of the business I was employed with (I knew how to run a switchboard,and was good with people) so when the regular gal was sick, I just took over for a few days. I actually worked as secretary to the president, so I pretty much could make make own decisions about my work – as long as he was set up with appointments, lunches, etc. It was a sweet job. No hanky panky expected either.
I have no problem naming the man as I will never forget what he did to me. He told me he was single and asked me to lunch. We had a great time so we had more lunches and then began dinners. He introduced me to steak and lobster and martinis. He was breath-taking in the looks department and kissed as good as he looked.
I began the only real “affair” I ever have had in my life. I quickly fell for this guy and we were amazing together in every way. After about six months he invited me to his place for a party. We had always gotten a suite at some posh hotel. He said because he was hosting, his buddy would pick me up. I was so happy and thought I was falling in love with this perfect “replica” of Don Draper in Madmen. However he was too close a replica!
His friend ran the bell and a lovely woman answered the door with three little ones snuggling her closely.  “Welcome to our home” she said sweetly.  My husband said you are a lovely young woman.  She was, of course, married to DICK PROTEAU -I will never forget that name, nor what happened next.

I was stunned and not quite sure what to do.  Dick (I mean Pig Proteau) stepped in and asked me how I was doing.  I told him I had a back that ached and thought I would go home as I needed to see a chiropractor.  “No problem,” Pig said, “A chiropractor is here tonight.

He went to a closet and grabbed a blanket and put it on the floor of the living room.  I was still in a state of disbelief.  He said “this is (what ever the heck his name was – probably pig2) and he can give you an adjustment.”  Like an idiot I lay on my tummy on the floor and the man actually sat on me and TRIED to feel me up (as we used to say).  Like a weightlifter setting a record, a trigger went off and so did he.  I stood up and demanded a phone.  I called a cab and stepped outside to wait.

I was horrified and humiliated.  I had cared so much about this totally lying PIG.  I said my prayers and asked for forgiveness for being with him.  I really knew NOTHING about his other life.  I felt like I had stabbed her in the back too, and her children.

I never spoke to him again and when he stepped into the office I simply turned and left.  Of course that was after I told him loudly what a lying, stinking, filthy, cheating, PIG he was.  From that point I simply avoided him 100%.  I felt terrible.

What made it worse was my friend, who worked in the next office over, called me on the phone and said, “Look towards my office”.  She stood there being sexually “manipulated” in the hallway by a red-haired young man who was married and whose wife had just given birth to his first baby.  I felt physically ill. His name was Bill, but I can’t remember the last.  Her name was Barbara, and she gave me a different view of her morals.  Didn’t speak to her again.

I quit my job with no notice.  I felt bad about doing that, but I couldn’t stand being anywhere near that place one more minute.

Sure…..the time period Madmen was in was lovely for single young women.  NOT!  I actually couldn’t believe the show was so true to life – the writer must have lived it too.

—————————————

Have a good day, and for you single young women, keep in mind you don’t really know someone for at least a year…my husband calls that time “the impression stage”. Take it slow.

Great thoughts to help you manage emergencies and stress

April 28, 2015

This is a wonderful true story I want to share with everyone who enjoys this blog. If you’ve read me before you know I broke my back two years ago, had to have surgeries, and now have some serious permanent disabilities.

I was a fitness trainer, a dancer, and taught stress management and relaxation (thank God). My life was perfect. Now I am working every day creating my new life, and when I read these paragraphs from a deliciously spiritual book, God in You, by Dr. David Jeremiah, I just had to share………

I never knew I had such respect for Thomas Edison.

“It was December of 1914 when Thomas Edison’s great laboratories in West Orange, New Jersey, were almost entirely destroyed by fire. In one night Edison lost 2 million dollars worth of equipment and the record of much of his life-work. Edison’s son Charles ran frantically about trying to find his father and finally came upon him standing near the fire, his face ruddy in the glow, and his white hair blown by the winter winds.”

“ My heart ached for him” Charles Edison said. “He was no longer young, and everything was being destroyed. He then spotted me. And he said to me, @Where is your mother? Find her. Bring her here. She will never see anything like this again as long as she lives!”

The next morning, walking about the charred embers of so many of his hopes and dreams, the sixty-seven-year old Edison mused, “There is great value in disaster. All our mistakes are burned up. Thank God! We can start all over again.”

…………………………….

Each day is a new opportunity to begin again.  I am endeavoring to move onward and upward.  I hope you know that no matter what happens in your lives, you have the choice (100%) of how to respond!  Take a breath, find a fair melding of intellect and emotion, and THEN respond.  You can do these things in short order once you make a habit of doing them.  Now, onward and upward for you too!  It’s much more fun than you think to respond in a manner that knocks people off their feet.  “Gosh, look how great his or her response was!”  Gain respect and have a better life.

God bless you!
