Have you thanked GOD today?

Friday, October 26, 2012

If I had a nickel for everytime i told myself id put me first tomorrow,Id have a mansion and be very rich!LOL,i am harder on myself than others are.I just think about and do for my elders,my friends that need me and my family.Today,I made time for myself and swam at the pool for therapy on my back.I sat next to a lady complaining about everything from the election to not liking anyone at the pool to her 2 year old car.I turned to her smiled and said yeah but,Have you thanked God today?Have you counted your many blessings?Sometimes we are so busy complaining about what isnt right,that we dont remember what is right!She told me I was sent there to remind her to be more aware of her many blessings. emoticon SUSAN

    You're so right, Susan. All I have to do is look around this room and I can count the many things I'm thankful for. I've even got a list that when I'm feeling down I look at. Speaking of which I have to add my new cat, Lucinda, to that list. Sometimes we can get bogged down in the bad stuff and we forget about the simple things in life that we do have. Even a roof over one's head, a warm bed to sleep in at night, a home-cooked meal... things we take for granted that so many people in the world who don't have these things would cherish. It pays to stop and smell the roses, to remember the little things in life that we are lucky to have. I hope you posing that question to that lady made her think. Thank you for prompting me to stop for a moment and smile about all the things I am thankful for emoticon

A day with the oldies

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

My volunteer job is so fulfilling.Sad,happy,angry,confused are all feelings i experience on a daily basis.See my job is with people that no longer have homes.They have a place to stay but not a home is the top complaint.They are senior citizens.Some have alzheimers,some have mild dementia,some are just placed there to live out their final years.I walk in the door and see some glum faces that brighten upon seeing me.Susan they all holler!!I have a surprise for everyone,I yelled.They had stunned looks when i pulled out a cd player and popped some oldies in.There was laughter,singing,dancing,flirting,refreshm
ents from the nurses
and just alot of fun and smiles.I then pulled out coloring books and crayons
markers and paints.To say they were giggling and enjoying the day was an
understatement.Joy,a nurse walked over and hugged me tight.Susan,ya know when they are needing you Huh?I laughed and looked over at the slumbering sweethearts and smiled...they cheer me up so much!Oldies and Oldies go together!What a great time!! emoticon

We are ALL worthy

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

I will not change who I am for anyone.I have been through alot the last 8 years.I yo-yo at times but for the most part have held my own.I take full credit for back sliding and i'm in the learning process.My therapist says my body shows a neat trim figure and my eyes see a plus size figure.I know that my sweet,loving,kind self deserves to be healthy and I will not trade health anymore for ice cream or donuts.I cant tell you the amount of self esteem I had at 138 lbs.Im not waiting to be that weight again to feel good about myself.I love me any way I am!I am worthy of self LOVE! emoticon SUSAN

This is for all the fat people.

Monday, October 22, 2012

I am so sick of the rude,ugly,non thinking adults out there!!!Fat people have ears and can hear to spite what some people think.I'm standing in a line behind a morbidly obese young woman in a motorized shopping cart.She had limited arm reach and was asking for help and not one other person stepped forward.I dont know about anyone else but,I was raised with respect,love and kindness for my fellow man/woman.Two 20ish women stood in line laughing histerically and talking about the food she filled her cart with was for one meal!!The lady(Cynthia) had large tears rolling down her cheeks from embarrassment and I stopped in my tracks,scooped up her groceries laid them on the conveyer and called for the manager.Two came quickly,I reminded them of compassion and that a fat person isnt always choosing to be fat and if they are what the heck?Does that give anyone the right to humiliate another human being?The checker should have called a manager but,its not her fault.Cynthia is 24 years old,with no family and a beautiful soul.My oldest dd has offered to get her involved with a support group and call her when she needs a shopping escort.I am so proud of her!It feels so good to help somebody out.I am not one to stand for rudeness to another and have had my share of dirty names.But im still standing! emoticon SUSAN

I'm glad you stepped up and did the right thing. Goodness, didn't their parents teach them manners or compassion ? Whenever I see a person in need at the grocery store or where ever, I try to lend a hand. That just the decent thing to do.

It's scary, but few people seem to want to do the decent thing anymore.

You're a decent soul !

    More people like you and your DD are what we need in this country, thank goodness you were there to help hthe young lady. I just don't know how people are being raised these days; seems like a lot less respect for other people and their feelings.

    People are rude because our society enables it to much. if those young people were mistreated in a similar manner maybe they would learn to stop doing it instead of contuing the problem
