I felt so GOOD I went to the gym

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

My friend came by to ask did I want to go to the gym?She knows I have problems with the smell and hate to wait on the equipment but,I went!we always go our seperate ways and come back and get on the equipment together.Of course I am a people person and struck up a conversation with a young woman sitting on a bench.She confided that she felt too fat to get on the treadmill!I told her that she needed to look around at all of the fat people at least trying to do something.I encouraged her to hop on next to me and she did!My friend Bailey came in and helped me cheer her on and she went ten minutes...woohoo!To our complete shock she bursted into tears and said she was a wuss!!We both hugged her and said she was not!Bailey told her she did great and she signed up for treadmill trainer.Alot of us stop doing anything physical,eat more,gain weight and feel bad.Your body needs to readjust to what it's become accustomed to NOT doing!.....Our fires here have been put out for now...we are so dry from no rain we cant afford to do anything that will cause a spark...Im treading lightly on the pavement...LOL!It's cooler and thats such a blessing to us.... emoticonSUSAN

Children are a blessing!

Sunday, September 04, 2011

We started the day off with a nice cool breeze but,no rain.At least we had a nice wind.We had a nice light lunch,walked through the mall and sat down on a bench for a few minutes.I noticed the voice of a child sitting contentedly beside her baby brother,she was singing...ITSY BITSY SPIDER...to the baby and he was belly laughing!She would say...You stop laughing Im serious(in a funny voice)as soon as he would quiet down,she would start to sing again.I sat and watched as the two sang and laughed. I thought what a wonderful world we live in.We really dont need gadgets or toys to be amused,all it takes is a funny baby and a singing little girl to amuse me...LOL...An elderly lady sat down and admired the giggling pair.With tears in her eyes she turned to me and smiled.I returned her smile and asked how she was.Oh for 95 I'd say as good as the Lord is allowing me to be!She was laughing at the children and said I have out-lived my 7 children!Oh what a blessing they were to me!!The baby toddled over to her and and said mawmaw...we both laughed....They may drive us to the edge and push us over it but,the journey is worth every minute of the trip emoticonSUSAN

    Your blog reminds us to value the "simplier" things in life. Sometimes all the technology of today gets in the way of enjoying the everyday simple pleasures.

    What a neat story love to people watch when we are out and about
Brought back a memory of me in the grocery store with a grand daughter she was about 2 sitting in the cart and singing "A bushel and a peck" some of you may remember it "And a hug around the neck" she knew all the words and it brought many a smile to others around us.
One day at a time

    I completely agree with you. My 5 yr old daughter is the biggest blessing I've ever received and I wouldn't trade her for anything. Thank you for the smile.

Friday, September 02, 2011

We had lunch,shopped and burned up in the heat...WHEW!The weather says we will soon experience 90's...brrrr!LOL im being sarcastic but we have had 80 days of 100's.My garden burned up,I tripped on a deep dry crack in the ground and the dog is spoiled to AC!My DH is at least getting to have Labor Day since he has worked 6/12 hour days.But,we had a good day,we are both healthy and have a home and for that I am grateful... emoticonSUSAN

    What a great way to spend the day. Those cracks are crazy. Ours are about three foot deep and some as wide as four to six inches. Disappointed we didn't get the rain but looking forward to the cool front. It says the lows might hit the upper 50's on two days. That would SO rock! High's still in the 90's but great night temps.

Kayla HAD a bully!!

Thursday, September 01, 2011

Yes it's true and he has grabbed her uh..... package many times!He is a pip squeak and a show off and has a foul mouth!So,in April she grabbed him by the collar,slammed him up against a locker and made him apologize!LOL,she can be mean...So,yesterday he came up to her and told her she looked pretty and he was an a--hole for doing what he did to her!!!Now his sister is being harassed/bullied by a little pip squeak,he dont like it.His mama called to tell me she was sorry for all he put Kayla through and that he had just told her what he had done.He has put together a group called "Students against bullies"????I was stumped!but,delighted that he went from bully to problem solver....he asked Kayla to join!I am not saying I think what she did was right,but,thats what causes kids to kill and he has stopped his bullying to become a better person.He told Kayla he saw his life flash before him,it really scared him and besides she had rage on her face resembling a dragon...HAHAHAHA!!It made him change for which his mama is grateful!! emoticonSUSAN

    Sounds like the boy is turning it around and the group sounds like one worth joining. I hope Kayla can help them keep the momentum....

    Can I contribute to Kayla's tuition to the Police Academy? We need more women like her on the force.

God Bless Kayla, and may she always have a happy ending to any grief in her life!

    I don't condone violence but Kayla's response was to an attack and she had every right to fight back! I think that the turn around that this kid has made is monumental and I am glad that he has chosen to change his life.
