I was sitting at the Intersection 16 right beside Walmart when some straight line winds picked up out of no where. Then I hear a loud bam! against my car. I looked out of my rear view mirror to see what hit me and saw nothing, Nut, now I have a huge dent in my front panel above my left tire. Just my luck! I guess this means it is officially tornado season. Ugh.
People are born self-centered and why shouldn't they be? Most of us spend the first years of our lives with our every need being met, with parents and grandparents and aunts and uncles and siblings and cousins and a host of others doting on us. But at some point that has to change. At some point, parents need to teach their children that they aren't the center of the universe, but rather a part of a bigger whole. And they should be taught to be kind, and loving and generous and forgiving. They should be taught that the world is not there to serve them, but rather that everything they put out into the world, both good and bad, will be paid back to them at some point in the grand scheme of things.
Friends, please do not let the bad attitude of others ruin your day! There is always someone who will make you smile, you still have time to say I love you and make others smile too. Life goes on always and is beautiful and mine and that is what it is. Do not listen to negativity or to anything that is not beautiful and a blessing.
Children are the anchors that hold a mother to life wherever she may be. Happy Mothers Day to all the Mothers out there near and far, you all know precisely who you are! Living this Earth or in Heaven above, sending all of you lots of endearing love! #mothersday
Since beginning this heartbreaking journey that many call "surviving" the loss of your child, I have learned so many things. I have learned that time means nothing and everything both at once. Time is forever split by that one moment I heard the unfathomable words that was my worst nightmare..."I am so sorry, but your child has died." Time is forever seen as before and after that moment. Time means NOTHING for no matter how much time passes, the pain and heartache never go away! Time means EVERYTHING because etched into the deepest part of my soul is the memory of the last time I saw my daughter, heard her voice, saw the sparkle in her smile, touched her, laughed with her, cried with her, celebrated with her, the last time I was blessed to make my last memory with her...the last time my life felt complete. I have learned true meaning of heart break; the piercing pain that never ever goes away. Even though my baby girl Sydney passed away 14 years ago today, I learned that my life, my world, is forever changed, and I will never be the same person I was before.
So when your husband and your brother-in-law both tell you to go get new tires, you should definitely listen! When I went to pick up my daughter from her friend's home, I heard a strange sound, and then realized it was the tire going flat... so I have to say a giant THANK YOU to my brother-in-law Don Bullock who took time out of his wedding anniversary today to come rescue me after I attempted to fix it myself. Once he got the spare on I got to go and spend two hours at Walmart to get new tires. Finally, I got home and fixed dinner, ate and then had to go pick up my other daughter from work. Finally home again and able to sit down and unwind. It has been an exhausting Saturday, Whew
The United Church of Christ had a really amazing LIVE Nativity scene tonight, equipped with a real donkey, sheep, goats, calves and an alpaca! Plus, a real baby that looked only about one week old! *I'm no biblical scholar, but the only detail that seemed out of place was Baby Jesus using a Binky ( pacifier ). ;D
What an amazing family three-day weekend that we had! Saturday, my Husband and I spent most of the beautiful day outside doing stuff that needed to be done around the property. Then Sunday afternoon and evening we had our annual Autumn Fest with a hayride, bonfire and lots of delicious foods! Today we went to Chicago to a museum over there that painted crafts for Fall. Then we met up with our guys to eat dinner at a Mexican restaurant which is always our favorite when we go eat with them YUM!
I am such an idiot hahaha! I have been looking all over my house, my boxes of books, my bags and car for the last week for my camera, I had it at the book signing and I was so afraid I left it there or that I'd somehow set it down with another author's things! I emptied the boxes multiple times, thinking, okay, did I miss it? I checked the tablecloth to see if it got wrapped up in it. And where did I find it, after one last ditch effort of searching? Under the bed! Way under the bed! It must have slipped out of my bag and then the cats decided to use it as a toy and they shoved it deeper under my bed! buwahahaha
Preschool and Head Start Time! Nothing better than the two for one deal of a babysitter! Mom and Dad get some alone time out on the town and your kids begin their process of socialization, falling asleep to another voice, stretching out their trusting beaks to our birds. Waiting their turns, board games make it so easy and fun to develop patience in your preschooler. Plan toddler activities that foster perseverance such as choosing puzzles your kid can finish and see him or her through to the end. Children love the feeling of accomplishment and the following challenges of doing it again without anyone's help. Make sure that there is always time for your child to develop individual routines: time to get dressed, eat, clean up, etc.
