Just sayin’ 71

I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

Love

Whenever I see two swans I am reminded of how elegant and beautiful love can be. But then I see a single swan, and I am saddened by the reminder that this elegant species mate for life. Now; they have lost their love and will continue missing them until they themselves pass. Love is beautiful. … More Love

Stinkin’ thinkin’

We all have that day when we are knocked down with bad thinking, grumpiness, crabbiness, moodiness, call it what you want; you know what I’m talking about. You’re basically stuck, rolling around like a pig in the mud. Only you’re not a pig, you’re a human. And for the most part, we don’t enjoy rolling … More Stinkin’ thinkin’

Embracing “yourself”

In recent events of turning forty-five, I’ve decided to update my bitmoji. Let’s face it none of us are 25 anymore nor do we live life behind a snap-chat beauty filter; so I’ve decided that the forehead wrinkle needed to be updated! Oh sure I know it’s February; like I said, I was still embracing!

Just sayin # 72

Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey – but I’d bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

Anxiety, Pt II

My church has been doing a series on anxiety over the past few weeks and as Christians, how we are to cope, deal, or address it. You can seek a counseling, you can even seek additional help with medication and a doctor monitoring that, what you cannot do; is be alone. We are never alone … More Anxiety, Pt II

Her melody

She sits with her guitar on the roof beneath the sun. She sings because she can, it is what she does and what she loves. Some songs are full of love, others upbeat, but the sad songs are where she finds defeat. She sings for you; she sings for me, but only she knows how … More Her melody

That smile

She has love of country music in her heart, and she’s ready to dance anytime. When she reveals her smile you want to be the one responsible for making it appear. The world is at her feet only she doesn’t know it yet, but when she does; that million dollar smile will be hers for … More That smile

Her time

Getting her to be serious has often shown its frustration. Her way of living is just that, HERS! She has a fire that lies within her that is slowly starting to burn; when the flames reach high and embers smolder the world will be hers for the taking. ❤️ my beautiful Gabrielle.<<<< gt;<< p>

She hides

She smiles at her surroundings but is reserved with great care, she takes in more than you see and gives only what she wants you to know. But if she lets you in, for you are the lucky one, she will give you her everything. ❤️my beautiful niece<< p>

Those eyes

She can sparkle and she can shine, her eyes will be the culprit of stealing your time. But heed my warning on how you feel, for if you’re not careful it is your heart she will steal. ❤️ my beautiful niece.

Anxiety

This anxiety is overwhelming- it takes over their minutes – it will take over their hours if allowed- it will even erase full days. They turn their cheek every chance they get- but they know it’s there lurking around the corner and now it has brought fear along too! It has brought fear because they … More Anxiety

20 (twenty) minutes

Sometimes I become so discourage (self inflicted I know) You want your blog to reach the skies, gain followers, have other writers liking your posts, and the ever earth shattering RE-BLOG!!! But how many times we sit between the forty hour work week and the home life of parent, spouse, maid, cook, mechanic! You know … More 20 (twenty) minutes

Clutter to clarity

My sister told me about a book she finished reading and said it was definitely something I should read. It’s title, Blessed by Less by Susan V. Vogt. I’m always working on getting rid of things but I still suffer from the ol’ “Ohh I may need that someday”. Now don’t misunderstand me, this book … More Clutter to clarity

Flake

It’s seems to me that maybe, it pretty much always means no, so don’t tell me you might just let it go. Often times were lazy, it seems to stand in my way, cause no one, no not no one wants to be let down. ~Jack Johnson – Flake

I was listening to the radio yesterday; switching stations as I usually do, because quite frankly I get bored with music nowadays. But a song caught my attention, the voice was raw, the words were clear, hearing them pierced me, immediately didn’t like them. They were harsh, abrupt, hurtful, even painful I felt tears start … More 1-800-273-8255

It’s okay if you don’t know what to say but I hope this helps.

A dear friend of mine posted this today on his Facebook wall. While he himself is grieving with a difficult loss I found it interesting he shared it. He means no ill-will toward anyone who has passed on their condolences during this difficult time, but rather found a better way to say “I’m sorry for … More It’s okay if you don’t know what to say but I hope this helps.

Be you.

Fake tan.Fake hair. Fake teeth. Fake breasts.Fake eye color. Fake eyelashes. Fake flat stomach. Whoever you are, don't be fake. Be you. That's who is so beautiful.

Hmmm….

Remember when people had diaries and would get mad when other people read them? Yeah, now they just put everything online and get mad when they don't.

Pleased.

I love this because I have grown to learn why my fascination with large bodies of water puts me at peace. It has always been my dream to live on the water, even as a young girl. I fell in love with our summers on Houghton Lake and the weekends at my uncles’ place on … More Pleased.

The missing emoji 

I’ve often laughed at the suggestions others post on their wall about the Facebook ‘buttons’. Some write ‘how about a “you’re” button’, due to of all of those (I’m sure I’ve been guilty a time or two) who type “your” instead. It’s not that I don’t know I’m just usually in a rush. Shock. I know. … More The missing emoji
