Rainy Monday

Monday, October 20, 2014




I was at my mom's yesterday as in every Sunday for the past 10 years+ and I played with her beautiful cat Jingles. He's completely blind, a stray and they have had him for the past 5 years or so. This morning I get the following message ~

Hi Donna, We lost Jingles awhile ago. He was on the counter top and just fell off. He couldn't stand up. He lived for a little while before he died. He probably had a heart attack or stroke. That's strange because today he act like he felt good and I even remarked it was unusual that he come in the living room a few times. At least he had a home and plenty food to eat for about 5 years with us and for that I am glad. Love you, Mom.

What is it with pets this past week? 2 people from work besides myself and my mom have lost them. And they are our family. I'm single (accept for my boyfriend being here) and I know Scoobie was so much a part of my life.. He was my walking buddy, my door greeter and so much more. As in life the seasons come and go, so do our beloved pets.

  Sorry to hear about another pet loss in your family. It is strange how cats seem to know when the end is near, how they want to be close to you, and then just "slip away".... You can take comfort that they didn't suffer in the end. Take care. emoticon emoticon

    So sorry, I missed the status note about Scooby and now your mom has lost her companion too. It is always sad and hard when one of our lil buddies pass. They bring so much to our lives and we are lost without them for awhile. They walk with us and curl up and comfort us. They show us so much love. emoticon emoticon

My daughter..spot on

Sunday, October 19, 2014



My daughter works at a Best Western Hotel in our local area. This is a conversation she had with a guest this morning:


Wow... just had a 'guest' tell me I'm beautiful but "you'd be so much prettier if you lost weight" and I'm like "I'm beautiful just as i am"

Doesn't she have the right attitude? Aren't we all beautiful the way we are? So why do we keep beating ourselves up? We sometimes rely too much on what others think about us and most likely they aren't even thinking about us that much it's how we perceive ourselves internally that we rely on.

    Your daughter is absolutely breath taking. I think she is so right. She is beautiful just as she is. We don't diet to please others. We strive to eat health to be as healthy as we can.

  I have seen some beautiful people who are not so beautiful when you get to know them and some not so beautiful but are when you get to know them. It also starts from the inside, so look into your heart.

I wanted to say a special thank you to everyone who commented about my loss on Thursday of my beloved Scoobie. There will never be another dog that will take his place.. he was so very special to me and I miss him being here with me so very much.

Love and hugs to all for your concern, prayers and well wishes.

Finally Friday

Friday, October 17, 2014



Yesterday was a very hard day for me. I came home from work. Evidently my dog Scoobie had a seizure. He didn't come out of this one. I took him to the vet and unfortunately he didn't make it. He was a good dog.. three-legged and all that suffered from seizures and constant arthritis pain. I know he's better off where he is and for that I have comfort. RIP..Scoobie. 11 years old.



Today I am putting in a twelve hour shift. It's gonna be tough but the last four hours I only have to answer the phones and help out in that aspect nothing else so it should be all good and it's four hours extra of overtime.

  Condolences to you and yours, losing a cherished pet is heart-breaking. I also had a "three-legged" pet which to this day stole my heart. Although I've had other pets since, he has always been my favorite. emoticon emoticon

    I feel your loss my dear sister. My husband and I too lost one of our babies to seizures, Spuds was 19 years old and was the best little fur baby anyone could ask for. He was Chihuahau and Spitz, we called him a Chitz. Lol Easy to train and house break. Loveable and picked my husband as his master. He even saved my life when I was having a seizure. I was alone in the bedroom laying down after after my brain surgery and I had a grand mal and some how Spuds and my other dog Penny just knew it was happening. They alerted everyone in the house by trying to tear down the door to my bedroom. Once the door was opened my husband said they jumped on the bed and started barking even more fiercely. They had to be put in the kids room so the EMT's could get to me. After that they started getting on y lap and would not let anyone touch me with out nipping at them. Lol We would have to put them in the bedroom room when people came to see me. I still miss Spuds and have many pictures of him... he will be with us forever in our hearts..
Love Always your sister in Christ

Tis Thursday..yes it is!

Thursday, October 16, 2014



Another week has almost come and gone. Have you accomplished all of your goals? I know I have not...and I'm willing to admit it but that doesn't mean I have to admit defeat. No-sir-ree. I'm not ever going to do that. You know why? Because I'm bigger than a number, because I'm more than the food I put in my body and the exercise I do. I have a heart. I'm kind. I'm gentle and I have feelings that go beyond just a healthy lifestyle.

Remember even in those valleys you have to treat your self with respect and dignity. Below is a sample of what I enjoy doing. Writing songs. This is an original that I wrote and sung. The song title is "Give Us One More Try"
