I got paid to rake!

Monday, September 26, 2011

I normally get busy on Monday after dh and dd leave for the day.Today,I was out really early putting out the trash,limbs,raking and looked down to pick up what looked like a cigarette package with a $50 bill tucked neatly in the plastic with a lighter!!!It was covered in dirt and I nearly threw it away....wow!Last week while trying on some cardigans,I reached inside the pocket and found a $20!!I was so excited that I went to go buy some little coats for the poor kids at the elementary up the road.The goodwill,had alot of them and she threw in some that needed minor repairs.I will wash and repair them for tomorrow.50 little children will get a nice warm coat and I will get a warm heart..... emoticonSUSAN

    Thanks you for thinking of the children at the elementary school, that was a kind and wonderful thing to do. I'm sure every child that gets of of those coats will be happy to stay warm this winter.

    I can normally find mine at the park after a nice walk. With the weather turning cooler you might have to lure it back with some nice hot tea or coffee :-)

    Hmmm....where did that darn thing go? Don't worry, you'll find it. It's probably just hiding out and resting for a little while. It will come back out when it's ready. Sometimes those crazy things just need a break. Try giving it a reward that might just do the trick.

    You slipped a little bit into Rose's hand to help her through, and you put the rest of it away when you stored your anger. Go poke at the anger, it should fall right out on your lap. (At least that's where I think it is.)

    I think you might need to go out and look for it. Perhaps you left it behind somewhere, but it might have run off to play at the beach or the park with someone else's mojo. Maybe if you have a drink of water, a nice snooze, then go for a walk out there, it'll see you and come running to be reunited!

I have been ready to eat a whole hog!

Saturday, September 24, 2011

Something has changed inside me!I cant figure what,but for some reason...I just dream of a giant breakfast of pancakes,ham,eggs,fruit,cinnamon roll,gravy and biscuits,bacon,sausage and waffles!!!I think I've woke up chewing on my pillow a few times.LOL,I havent done it but,want to!I'm getting well fed and feel satisfied.I have a recurring nightmare that I weigh 1,000 pounds and am in a bed unable to get up!I'm crying out for someone and Jillian Michaels comes running in and screams "move or I'll hit you...NOW!!!I cant look at the Doctors because shes on there now.I so love her to pieces too.All that I can think of is that my daughter works until 10&11 pm and I try to stay awake to pick her up and watch tv infomercials and saw a commercial with Jillian on it plus IHOP had stuffed pancakes ads every 5 minutes.What if I wake up and im the nutty proffessor???Just Kidding and being silly now.... emoticonSUSAN

I have a disease called ANGER!!

Thursday, September 22, 2011

For alot of years I have been seeing a very nice therapist for healing.Here in the past 2 months my anger is creeping back bit by bit.What I am learning is this....I choose how Im going to respond to anger.If I feel it coming on,I take some steps back and deep breathe.I talk to anger like I would a person.You are not going to control me!!I am not going to scream-yell-cry!Anger hates Happiness and I find all the happy thoughts I can to drown Anger.I probably sound looney tunes to ya'll? Well,that's okay cause I am a little,it's what gets me through! emoticonSUSAN

    Anger gives you energy, and it can be a really useful tool to get you where you need to be. But it's good to have a whole lot of other tools in the toolbox so you can save the big guns for when nothing else will do the trick. IMHO

    You DESERVE happiness, and anger just gets in the way of that. GOOD FOR YOU for being willing to do the hard work of working with a therapist to learn more successful ways to get to that happiness!

    Whatever it is, it isn't worth getting angry over. I typically find that if my anger is directed at someone, it is because they are acting selfishly; they are not thinking of anyone but themselves. Anger shortens my life. I've asked the Lord to talk to me at the moment when those feelings well up. I can then choose to ignore him and be angry or I can take a deep breath and refocus on being happy. When that happens, I don't want to talk to the Lord later and have to explain to him why I chose to ignore him.

Let it go, allow yourself to grow, accept peace.

    Whatever it takes!! I heard this awesome quote the other day from an older gentleman in my Water Aerobics class, he said... Whatever or Whomever angers you, controls you!! I have been dealing with that last week, but this week is so much better!!!! I have found if I am stressed, I just head to the pool, it really calms me down, and helps me get perspective.... Keep up the awesome job!!! HUGS!! Shannon

    You are not looney, Sue. This is a great psychological tool - to talk to the anger and tell it to get lost, ask why it's overreacting. Physical activity always helps, too. I used to throw balls against a fence until I cooled down.

I am feeling blue but.....

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

dancing,singing,cleaning and watching comedies really help!Unfortunately,I'm not able to!My arthritis had a flare last night and I can barely walk from the pain.I pushed myself to hike but had to quit halfway in.The Nursing home called to tell me one of MY friends Rosy was getting ready to pass.They called her daughter in Dallas and she told them she was very busy???? I got myself together and went to see her and hold her hand for a little while....her daughter never showed and Rosy peacefully passed holding our hands!!!My grief is shown but,mostly from the anger I feel!!I no longer have a mama and this uncaring creature called to say she'd try and make arrangements.I want to punch,hit,cry,scream but,I wont.My anxiety is high right now so I will go and calm down.... emoticon emoticonSUSAN

    That was so very generous of you to go and take the place of that selfish daughter. It's pretty unbelievable that anyone could ever do that to a family member especially their own mother.
Thank goodness you were there and she did not pass away alone.

    I thank you for being a kind wonderful friend to your friend Rosy, she didn't have her daughter but she had you in her time to hold her hand and comfort her at the end of her journey here on earth. Hopefully, some day her daughter will realize she should have tried to get to her mother before her demise, and reaches out to thank you for having love in your heart to be there for her mother.

    I'm so sorry you had to witness such a thing. It is always awful to watch this level of disrespect, but those responsible will have to answer for their own actions in the fullness of time. There are thousands of hard hearted individuals like this one around the globe, and there may be some extenuating circumstances that you are unaware of, so try to keep your judgement on this to yourself and avoid the gossip which will, no doubt, be the topic of many future conversations among the residents.

You might feel differently if, for example, your acquaintance was responsible for some unspeakable offense toward this woman as a child.

Pray for them both instead. It's MUCH more productive, I promise!
Blessings!
