Today,I woke to a chilly,cloudy,windy March Monday!The sun normally gets me going so for some reason I needed a butt-kicker!I started by organizing some book shelves in the office where I keep photo albums.I picked one up and sat down.There smiling from the pages was an 85 lb new bride!YES, thats what i was thinking 85!!!Then flipping through the pages came the babies smiling a toothy grin,riding a bike,dressing up for halloween,birthday parties!As a MOM and army wife I shoved all my wants and needs down and focused on my daughters,then grandkids.We move from Missouri to Germany to Kansas to Alaska to Virginia to Louisiana to Texas! When I finally did get some room to breathe,the teenager syndrome hit like a bolt of lightning.First came one grandson then another and to my surprise I discovered I was pregnant!Hundreds of problems and a sick time of it, emerged my 9 pound miracle.OH,did I mention? I wasnt supposed to have anymore kids after my second daughter was born!Well i'm raising daughter#4...GEE WHIZ why cant they have a how to manual?Sooooooooooo i'm in the learning to say NO process and putting myself #1!!!This is the time where i'm learning so much about myself as A PERSON,A WIFE,A MOTHER A GRANDMOTHER and my DOG even gets pissy when im not paying attention to her!I have the strength to be VICTORIOUS!!And i am...hugs sp

i didnt much have my usual enthusiasm but i pushed through it!Me and my husband planted 5 bushes,i washed laundry,played with the lazy dog and vacuumed the much needed floors!We were at the grocery store today because i needed to replenish my fruit,veggie,fish and bread.Well this lady was acting like her shopping was the only important shopping!She was cussing and pushing carts and just plain rude!I asked her if she was hungry and,she said yeah i really am,why?I replied,its in your body language!She pulled out a breakfast bar ate it and thanked me!This older guy said i think you saved her from angry mobs...smile hugs sp!!

I dont deny I have a cell phone and use it alot!But,once behind the wheel of my car it is only used by speaker phone!I was having my morning walk with my dog when a lady trying to text and drive,almost ran me down!If I hadnt been paying attention I might be dead!She ran off the shoulder and onto the sidewalk where me and Mo were:( please remember that if that call is important enough,pull over...she said she felt awful about it and cried a little but that wont help me my dog or other pedestrians! If she does it again.To make matters worse it was a school zone.SAD...hugs sp!

How many times have you said i'll do it tomorrow?And before you know it, its months or even years later!We put off seeing our doctors for fear,fear of hearing bad news and the bill we dread.we put off the dentist for the same reason and what about that book waiting on your nightstand with dust on it?We put off alot of stuff for tomorrow because we get too comfortable thinking it will still be there tomorrow!I put off changing my diet and exercising and it got me fatter,unhappy,unhealthy and angry at myself.Its never to late to change your life...one foot in front of the other!Also,if you have a friend you have said you'd go visit tomorrow and when you finally do call them and learn that they have been dead a year...its too late!That happened to me yesterday!hugs sp!
