I know He is all knowing/all seeing.Being good,faithful,loving,kind,friendly comes natural for me.Sometimes people test my faith...Yelling,screaming,cursing and being nasty is not called for.I witnessed an elderly lady in a scooter being verbally attacked,while she was crying!!I will probably end up someday being beat up for sticking my big nose into what isn't my beeswax.I ended up being cussed at and that was okay.It happened to be that womans daughter doing the cussing.I WOULD NEVER SPEAK TO MY MAMA THAT WAY!!#1 she would mount my head on her wall,#2 my siblings would come after me#3 She just would not allow it.There just isnt any excuse for it no matter what..I dont have her anymore but she was a shining light in my life and I adored her more than anything.I pray for people like that angry woman,who knows what she's going through?I hugged the elderly lady and rolled her into the ladies room and wet a towel to wash her face.Sent my daughter for some water and sat on the floor and listened. As Lila talked about how bad she feels living with her daughter and three teen kids,the worry seemed to drain from her face.I gave Lila a hotline phone # and the number for the nursing home.Whether its verbal,mental or physical..ITS ABUSE!!She already called and got a space at the nursing home...YAY!Pray for her and me too!She is a beautiful lady and only deserves love,kindness and respect!....

My beautiful granddaughter Mercedes is 14 going on 20...they just grow up so fast!She is headed down a troubled road and her parents are at their wits end to help her.She has seen her parents split up and fight,argue and threaten each other.
Her brothers moving out and back in,her 17 year old brother got married and became a father,and life just couldnt be more unstable because she has moved about 25 times in 14 years!
I took her with me to the shelter.
She didnt want to go!
I did'nt ask her,I told her she was going!
She sulked and listened to her phone/music and texted.
I was talking to her and she ignored me.
I took the phone.
Her life was over!
I put my arms around her
she cried and yelled!
We were going to serve lunch and hand out welcome kits.
Did you know that I chose you to come because I love your personality?
She was interseted now.
You are so kind and an interesting person!
well grammy if you say so.
we apron(ed)up and began dishing food to homeless shelter folks.
After a while I looked down the line of us spooners,
There my beautiful girl stood
Laughing and smiling and just glowing!
Next up we go into the station where the shampoo,soap,towels and clothing
are given out.She was reverting to the cranky sullen girl.
Grammy?this is not me!
Give it a try honey.
If you dont like it,
I'll let ya sit it out.
Soon,She was there with her glow back!
I whispered in her ear,
Doesnt it feel great to help?
She was smiling with tears in her eyes
I was getting our jackets to leave when she asked
Can we stay to serve dinner?
Yes honey,but it'll be two more hours.
Thats okay grammy,
They need help in the nursery.
I couldnt have been more proud of her as I was at that moment!
Later when we were done I took her to a steak house.
No Grammy,I will eat some McDonald's!
Huh?My little meat lover wanted MICKEYDEES???
We went and had a great time together.
She hadnt even asked for her phone back!!
She ate and made a beeline to help with the little people in
HAPPYLAND.....im a good helper,huh Grammy?
Yes,Darling you are!!!!.......Then she got in the car and slept
ALL THE WAY HOME!Her dad said,what did you do? she did a complete
turnaround at school! Shelter life will make you
change alot inside.Knowing we are blessed and those folks feel they are too?

I didnt even get to do anything!It was packed so,I came home and lifted weights,ran on the treadmill and used the elliptical.I was so tired I fell asleep!!Woke up and washed the car,raked leaves and bathed my dog!I had a nice salad with cucumbers,tomatoes and grilled chicken(my DH was kind enough to make and freeze)showered and fell asleep again!!It's all good because night sleep hasnt been happening much.While I was at the gym,I overheard ladies talking about lost weight and what to do with TOO BIG workout clothes.I suggested they get with others and swap Clean stain free clothes with the size they need.I left my number just in case because,I have some nice Nike,Reebok,Adidas and New Balance work out clothes that are too big!Surprise!!I recieved 4 sets for my 4 sets,and some extras she didnt need anymore!!I got rave reviews for my idea from the gym too!No money was spent and all are happy with their new smaller/larger size workout clothes!It's good because I live in an area where there are lots of new moms getting back in shape.Plus,make sure to meet at a public place...ITS SAFER that way;)Try this idea out at your gym.....
