    I'm that way too but I've learned to let my body "just be" as I've aged. Hopefully, you can be still when it comes time to sleep :-)

Watching the sunrise

Friday, August 05, 2011

I sat out on my patio for a few moments before heading out to donate blood.The sky was a picture of beauty,the birds were screeching the dog was chasing rabbits and I was having a peaceful moment.I asked myself how lucky am I to have this?So many people are having medical problems(been there)We b-tch and complain about things that are really not important!I want some things for the house but dont need them at all.A cool breeze rustled some leaves on my patio,like a whisper and at that moment i knew that the world is good.Never mind the heat coming on with the sunrise.I was just happy to see another one!!Many cant say the same.......RIP Uncle John!! emoticon SUSAN

    Awwww -- that sounds so refreshing and peaceful. I have one too - my deck surrounded by a beautiful, (dry!) yard. I even use it in the winter -- bundle up and go out to have coffee -- clears the head.

Also, giving blood is a good thing -- I should do that too!

miss sheila has a tan,whoopity doo!

Thursday, August 04, 2011

Okay,I gasp when I see people that have tans so leathery brown that I can't tell thier nationality.Yesterday,while having lunch with my daughter a woman came up to me and smiled and says to me,Hi my name is Sheila! I think im in a commercial or something!Hi,I answer and Im Susan,we shook hands.What can I do for you Sheila?(I love talking to people)Kayla was getting a salad.So she sat down and whispering to me asks,How long have you had spider veins?HUH?She goes on to explain she is addicted to tanning salons(I couldnt tell)And if she quits tanning(she's had skin cancer 5 times)can she live with the unsightly veins in her legs?I answered as truthfully and gracefully as I could(as to not scare her)ARE YOU KIDDING ME I ASK.I'd rather have spider veins any day than cancer!!Do you realize what you are saying?There are millions of people fighting for thier very lives and you worry about spider veins?Maybe you can contact a Psychiatrist and get help!I actually gave her my number for a friend to talk to(yes,im nuts)She gratefully hugged me and left.My question is..Why do so many people walk around looking like a leather sofa?dont ya know the sun and tanning can kill ya?........ emoticonSUSAN

    When I was younger, I spent hours in the sun using baby oil. Now I use a sunscreen (30) every time I go out. I get a tan but I stay protected and don't look like a leather couch. LOL!

    This stuff with strangers seems to happen to me all the time, and I wonder why ME? I even put Social Services' referral number in my phone so I can give it to people who'd be better off talking to professionals. I've always thought I was a stranger magnet, but I don't want to be, and I won't give out my phone number. You are so nice!

    I have to admit I have a tan. I have never been in a tanning booth, I live in the worlds largest outdoor tanning booth; Texas. It will be 110 again today so most of my family's fun activities involves water and very little cloths. We buy sun block by the case, but if you are in the sun everyday you will get a tan. We do work very hard on making sure our kids don't burn.

    O you are both so right. WHY???? INDEED! I used to want so much to have dark skin but I realize now the damage that can and will happen so now I stay in the shade, wear a hat and/or slather on the sunscreen! And spider veins?? Got them and I don't care. At least they won't kill me.

    Not only does over tanning give you cancer, eventually it will make you look older than you really are!!!

WHEN I WAS HOMELESS....

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

We lived in so many places when we were growing up! We barely had gotten used to one place before we moved again.We didnt get to put roots anywhere.Finally,out of nowhere an angel appeared!Actually it was a man tapping on our windshield.We were sleeping in our station wagon.Dad jumped awake and looked bleary eyed at the stranger.Hello there sir!he was cheerful.Mom was looking rather surprised at him too!Dad cautiously rolled down the window and the stranger reached out his hand.How do?My name is Clay Hamilton!He looked just like George C.Scott!!!We 5 kids were staring wide eyed like we'd been caught sneaking in the movies.Dad got out of the car and stood there talking for what seemed like hours.A look of shock crossed dads face and he grinned like a chesire cat!Jumping back in the car dad said I have a surprise!!We all stared at him,WHAT????we all asked.You'll see he answered. We followed Mr.Clays car for a long time.Finally pulling into the driveway of a house we waited while dad got out and walked over to Mr.Clay.To say we were puzzled was an understatement.We saw keys being handed over to dad.Dad walked up on the porch and unlocked the door to the house,What are ya'll waiting for? Welcome Home!! he grinned.We screamed and laughed and danced around like crazy people.The house needed alot of work but,we finally had a home.It was our home for about 5 years and mom and dad split up...leaving me homeless once again.I realize a home is what you make it.I realize that we can lose our homes to disaster,foreclosure,fire,flood.I have had roots in my current home for 14 years and I wake up daily,Thankful for it and I take care of it everyday!!God blessed us with Mr.Hamilton that day and I will never forget his kindness........ emoticonSUSAN

    Thank you for sharing your story. It makes me stop to thank God for the roof over my head. Sometimes we let things get to us and we sometime forget to be thankful for what we do have. Thanks for the reminder how lucky I am to have what I do have. Because some people dont have a home to go to. Which is sad when we are suppose to be the riches country in the world.

    That truly proves a point, that there ARE ANGELS AMONG US!! What a wonderful story. It should make all of us grateful for having a roof over our heads!! I will lay down tonight, and say a special prayer for thanks!! HUGS!! Shannon

I too will take today and be more helpful and kind to those around me in my daily excursions. Thank you for the reminder that life is more fulfilling when we take the time to share what we have with others.
