Independence

Saturday, July 03, 2010

What is your definition of independence?
Most of us would say, "Independence means freedom to make choices without prejudices of others interferring".
Some may say, "Independence is the act of expressing one's self wholeheartedly."

Whatever your definition, may you be free to embrace your inalienable rights as a proud American in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others.

Happy Independence Day to all: July 4th, 2010!!!

    As a wife of a Soldier in Afghanistan, and a Veteran, I am so grateful that we have freedoms to worship our God, to speak, and to live. However, I also believe that it is important that with that freedom we make choices that are responsible and healthy. emoticon emoticon

Realizing Death Is Non-negotiable

Monday, June 28, 2010

After 2 weeks of news of people dying among my colleagues, I have come to the frightening conclusion that so many people around me are leaving in massive numbers. Is June "time to go now" month?
Really, colleague's mother: a few days ago...
Another colleagues wife: this morning...
Another colleague herself...last week.
I even had a dream that I was in a cemetary reading names of people's tombstones- all were still alive at this moment in reality. At the end of the dream, I read my own name. Spooky, huh? It was almost like the movie "The Sixth Sense".
Lesson to self (confirmation): Live life to the fullest and don't take life for granted.

    A school friend of mine passed away last week. It doesn cause one to pause and reflect, doesn't it?

Listening to The Body

Monday, June 21, 2010

Conversations with my body:
Body: Argh!!! What were you thinking when you ate that buttered popcorn?
Me: Well, it was good at the time. What's Toy Story3 without popcorn?
Body: Ha! Now you are paying for it. Here, let me add stomach cramps with a side of loose bowels. There! Is that working for you now, Ms. Thang?
Me: Gee, thanks! I learned my lesson. Maalox...HOW YOU DOIN? (in a sultry, Wendy Williams voice)

Yes, Sparkreaders! I am recuperating slowly and will get back on the saddle to exercise in 3 hours from now...

Potty Break!

Quote for the Day- Mountains to Climb

Thursday, June 17, 2010

Looking over my life, lighting the way to brighter futures,
I see the dark blockage of obstacles ahead.
Knowing I may have to manuever around valleys and traverse
Into another dimension,
My mountains to climb are merely a pathway which leads UPWARD!

Motto: Though we have mountains to climb, there is positive growth and rewards at the top.

"Blessings come in ALL shapes, sizes, and colors. Discriminating those blessings puts one in danger of NEVER exploring what life has to offer."
