A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

Thursday, January 15, 2009

Someone sent this to me when I was going through some hard times with our journey . I hope it gives you a *spark* of strength like it did for me :o)

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

one old love
she can imagine
going back to...and one who reminds
her how far she has come...

enough money within her
control to move out and
rent a place of her own
even if she never wants
to or needs to...

something perfect to wear if
the employer
or date of her dreams
wants to see her in an hour.

a youth she's content
to leave behind....a past juicy enough that
she's looking forward to
retelling it
in her old age....

a set of screwdrivers, a
cordless drill, and a black lace bra...

one friend who always makes
her laugh...and one who lets her cry...

a good piece of furniture
not previously owned by anyone
else in her family...

eight matching plates, wine
glasses with stems, and a recipe
for a meal that will make her
guests feel honored.

a feeling of control over
her destiny...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

how to fall in love without
losing herself.

HOW TO QUIT A JOB,
BREAK UP WITH A LOVER,
AND CONFRONT A FRIEND
WITHOUT RUINING THE FRIENDSHIP...

when to try harder ... and
WHEN TO WALK AWAY...

that she can't change the
length of her calves, the width
of her hips, or the nature of her
parents....

that her childhood may not
have been perfect...but it's over...

what she would and wouldn't
do for love or more...

how to live alone ... even if
she doesn't like it..

whom she can trust,
whom she can't,
and why she shouldn't
take it personally...

where to go...
be it to her best friend's
kitchen table...
or a charming inn in the woods...
when her soul needs soothing

what she can and can't
accomplish in a day...
a month...
and a year.


am still awaitng to see two more dr's sometime before the end of the month.....am hoping i will have some answers soon........... ......i continue to work through the pain some days are better than others of course........one day at a time...............
blessings and hugs.....................lita

    I've seen this, love it and I think it is soooooo true. Women should be a little more prepared than men just because we are more often targets than men. Good words Lita!

Get on with life

Saturday, January 10, 2009



Get on with life

Some people are not going to like you no matter what you do or what you say. Get over it and get on with life.
Some of your efforts are not going to bring the results you were after. Accept it and find another approach.

Occasionally you'll be distracted and knocked off course for a while. On a regular basis, life will have its disappointments.

Those disappointments and distractions do not have to stop you. In fact, you can choose to let them inspire you and to push you forward.

No matter what has just happened, you are free in this moment to act with positive purpose. Whether the past has worked in your favor or not, the future is yours to create as you wish.

Life is too important to waste it feeling sorry for yourself or beating yourself up. Get up and get on with life, and make it match your highest expectations.

-- Ralph Marston

Breaking a habit starts with courage..............

Thursday, January 01, 2009


I saw this recently, and would like to share it with you.

I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest asset or heaviest burden.
I will push you up to success or down to disappointment.
I am at your command.
Half the things you do might just as well be turned over to me,
For I can do them quickly, correctly, and profitably.
I am easily managed, just be firm with me.
Those who are great, I have made great.
Those who are failures, I have made failures.
I am not a machine, though I work with the precision of a
machine and the intelligence of a person.
You can run me for profit, or you can run me for ruin.
Show me how you want it done. Educate me. Train me.
Lead me. Reward me.
And I will then...do it automatically.
I am your servant.
Who am I?
I am a habit.

The author of the above is unknown, but the words are right on target. If you make good habits, they in turn will make you. But like the weeds in the garden, bad habits can take over your life. Make a decision today to pull those weeds.But the benefits to your health and to your attitude can be priceless. Breaking a habit starts with courage, ends with discipline, and is fueled by desire.

wishing everyone the best of 2009.........................blessings and hugs...................lita

where did the year go................

Monday, December 29, 2008




Where did the year go? Suddenly it's December ......again.....and we realize that with giant strides we started in January and within a blink of an eye, 2008 is on its back!

A big "Thank You" to each and everyone of you, for the huge impact you had on my life this year. Especially for all the support and e-mails I received.......without you, I'm sure that 2008 would have been extremely boring.

From my side I hope you all had a Very Merry Christmas filled with Loving Wishes and Beautiful Thoughts.

May 2009 mark the beginning of a Tidal Wave of Love, Happiness and Bright Futures.

And to those who need someone special, may you find that true love.

To those who need money, may your finances overflow

To those who need caring, may you find a good heart

To those who need friends, I am still here for you .


Thanks for being my friend!!

blessings and hugs to all...................lita

NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS

Sunday, December 21, 2008

NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
... ONLINE ...

T'was the night before Christmas, I just couldn't sleep,
So I hopped out of bed and downstairs I did creep;
I went to the kitchen in search of a bite,
If I filled up my stomach, perhaps I'd sleep tight.

The cupboard was empty, the fridge it was bare,
I searched but I couldn't find food anywhere;
I looked out the window: streets covered with snow,
at two in the morning now where could I go?

I spied my computer, I will go bootup that ...
I'll take me online for some Christmas Eve chat!
The modem connected without a delay,
In the blink of an eye, I'd be chatting away.

But, no voice bid me "Welcome" or said: "You've got mail"
And I thought now's a bad time for my sound card to fail!
My buddy list opened with not even one name,
Is everyone sleeping? Well, I'll go play a game.

I couldn't get into Out Of Order or Slingo.
Strike A Match wouldn't work and neither did Bingo!!
The chat rooms were empty! I thought: Wow, that's just great—
AOL picked a fine time for another update.

IM's weren't working, my mail wouldn't send,
I felt so alone, couldn't find even one friend;
But wait! What's that sound? Did I hear something chime?
There's someone else out there ... somebody's on-line!

In wonder I read: "Hey — it's 3:53 —
Your friends are all sleeping; that's where you should be!"
"Turn off that 'puter, take your hand off that mouse,
I have a few things to drop off at your house."

"You know I can't stop there while you're still awake.
I have schedules to keep. Come on ... Give Me A Break!"
If you really are Santa (that jolly, old elf)
There's only one present I'd wish for myself.

The folks on my buddy list — those friends far and near —
You just gather them up and bring them right here;
In the flash of a moment, I awoke with a start,
It was only a dream, I sighed, heavy of heart.

I walked down the stairs and there 'round my tree,
Were all of the people I thought I'd never see;
We laughed and we {{{{{hugged}}}}} and we had such a ball!
Hmmmmmm ... maybe it wasn't a dream after all.
