The End Is Near

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Water-filled tubs...
Underground hideouts...
Judgement Day scares...

That is NOT what I am talking about!
Catchy title thought, huh?

The end of 2012 is near. emoticon

Many legends have gone in 2012...
Amy Winehouse
Whitney Houston
Etta James
Don Cornelius
Donna Summer
Michael Duncan
Robin Gibb
Sherman Helmsley
Joe Paterno
Jack Klugman
Larry L. King
Jenni Rivera
To name a few...

Although some were here on earth briefly, they've created a lasting impact for others to follow. Such talents from music to acting to sports, I cherish what each one has given back to society.
Thanks legends!

A new year awaits greater challenges, moments, and journeys to face.

Here we come!

The end is near, but not forgotten...

  Soror! My motto for 2013 is "In 2013 I'll be thankful for what I've already seen"! Just thought I would share that thought with you! I pray that your last days of 2012 are spectacular

Ever get the feeling...

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

That sometimes you think so vividly, others may hear what you thought?
That stupid people should wear a sign to warn others?
That today should have been Thursday (better yet Friday)?
That being visual makes jokes even funnier because you can "picture" them?
That not all godly people are actually godly?
That "love thy neighbor" should include a few exceptions?
That no one will EVER read a blog you posted because it was too lame or "deep"?

Just wondering... emoticon

    Oh, yes! I just came back from a trip where I used my new luggage with 4 wheels and I thought, "How is it that we traveled to other planets before we thought to put wheels on luggage?"

Beautiful Day...Stuck Inside

Saturday, December 15, 2012

The sun is shining.
Birds are chirping melodious songs.
Children are frolicking in careless wonder.

Here I am. Stuck. Inside sorting through old papers...taking small breaks, and preparing for the move back home...bittersweet!

It's so intense, I ate chili with rice and cornbread for breakfast AND lunch.
I just wanted to de-clutter hidden areas and get this over with...Geez!

    Man I thought I was the only one raised in a country family that ate rice with

Kindred spirits..& I sometimes eat cookies instead of toast for breakfast. I think I'm worse...

God bless,

    By me, it's overcast, chilly and raining! Since I'm not really feeling motivated to exercise right at this moment, I too am trying to organize some paperwork.

So far, I'm not doing a very good job since I have been on SP for over an hour now!

Oh well... emoticon

Healing...Not defeated...Not giving up!

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

After today's view of my vocal cords, I was instructed to not sing, use lower tones and allow my vocal cords to heal.

This may seem a bit awkward, but exposure to excessive moisture on a daily basis has a profound effect on my health, especially my sinuses.

So, I simply pray, work, and heal.
The rest (as they say) is history!

    If I knew then what I know now, I would have done some many different things with my vocal cords. I pray you heed your own advice...

God bless,

    Take care of yourself so you can be back in business! It's no fun being at less than 100% but sometimes that's our body's way of saying "stop it". I hope you heal soon emoticon
