    The whole ordeal seems quite overwhelming; however, it is good to realize that the good Lord has seen you through it &, as you pointed out, you see the light at the end of it. \o/ Praise God for that & for the fact that you did not suffer any broken bones! \o/

Sometimes we need such experiences (or to hear about the ones others have dealt with) to push us to do what we need to in the area of dropping the extra pounds from our frames. I am rooting for us both as we continue on this wonderful journey to being the best we can be. God bless us both with much success, as He walks us through each day!

P.S. If your daughter & you don't have to visit the Sunshine State during the hotter summer months, y'all might want to consider going in October --- the weather is at its finest then & the lines for attractions are shorter by far than they are during the tourist season of summertime.

    So sorry you have been suffering... falling issues were one of my incentives to lose weight. Still can't use a tub and must always be aware of my surroundings when walking but thanks to SP I am in much better shape. I will be sending healing "Sparks" and much encouragement to you as you heal completely and continue your journey emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

one and one make a million .

Monday, February 03, 2014

Today is feb 3 the year is 2014. just an ordinary day in the life of a housewife . I find i am thinking what are we doing to help others . somewhere someone is having a birthday . someone is having trouble with a mate . someone is hungry and needs a bowl of soup . what are you doing to help fill that void ? somewhere an animal is in trouble with a owner that is abusing them and making their life miserable and needs shelter and food . where can i be of use ? i am only one person and i can not fill all those needs but i find i sometimes dont do anything just because i am one . what can i do ? well lets see we can lend a hand to groups that fill these needs for others . lets find them and see what we can do as two . emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    A hand-written letter to a long-distance friend means a lot. Some buy extra canned goods when there are sales and give them to a food bank or to someone in need. I liked this blog because we can find a need to fill, if we will look for one.

    They say it's the little things that count. And as 1 person, perhaps I can notice if a neighbor needs my help. Or when I am at church, I may hear of someone who needs help. So do I look around to see who is going to volunteer, or do I raise my hand, and know that I am doing something to help.

I recently had to give up my cat, Angel, and when I signed her up on the "RescueMe" site on the Internet I included my phone number for information. I want everyone to not only be attracted by the photo I placed, but to hear what a wonderful loving cat she is, and hope they will be swayed by my words to choose her.

Two is better than one, three is better than two. But all help is appreciated.

    Very well said. I live in the boonies, no car, I have to walk 3 miles to get the bus. There will be a day I will be living in my own place again, and I will be able to do as I did in Columbus, Ohio. Your article was lovely. Thanks for the reminder of what one person can do.

    If you drive can you take someone shopping or make sure they get to church or to a meeting that you are going to also?

Just another idea.

Lots of church have ministries that reach out to those in our communities who are in need of help --- volunteers are always welcomed . Plus, there are Ronald McDonald houses where volunteers meet all types of needs, Actually the possiblities are endless.

God bless!

    I'm in a small town, and there is the crisis center we give food and toiletries to, our ladies small group collect money every week and every six months we help a local woman when we find one that has a need. When there is a house fire, I can give towels, etc to help them restart their lives. Just look around you, many to help. Even going into a store and smiling can brighten someone's day, and say a kind word...

let me tell you a tale about santa. How the story began .

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

one year the elf's got ill and santa had to hire outside help . they where not as fast as the regular crew . they quickly fell behind and santa was feeling the pressure .
then Mrs santa told him her mother was coming for the whole season . so he was upset .
then he went to the barn and was hitching up reindeer and three of them where expecting and two of them where just gone . nowhere to be found . He went into the house and thought . cider and rum but only to find the elf had drank all the cider and hidden the booze . so as he looked around . he dropped the cider jar and broke it into many little pieces all over the floor . so he had to clean it up . opening the cabinet he found the broom had been eaten by the mice down to the last straw . as he fumed and fussed a knock was heard at the door . as he opened the door he found a tiny angel with a hugh tree and the angel spoke to him . saying . good evening santa I have brought you good tiding and this tree . where would you like me to put it ? so this is how the first angel on the tree top started . just in case you where wondering . have a nice day remember laughter is the best to make you feel good . emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

lost my crown among other things .

Saturday, September 21, 2013

well I am not queen to lose my crown but I did lose something that was equally important to my health . I lost the crown off my tooth . I bite into a nut . lost the crown with that bite . called the dentist and they said . soonest to get in is Tuesday . so I have some more days to wait until then . when I started having trouble . dull toothache about two months ago . I thought . hey it cant be a tooth ache . the nerves are gone with that tooth . had a root canal they took the roots out so it cant be a problem with the tooth . when I looked in the mirror I saw that one side of the base of that tooth had gone . so it must have been trying to warn me but like usual I did not listen .so am no longer queen or maybe I can get my crown back . will see after Tuesday . good news the thing on my back was not cancer . have not called the other doctor yet to look at the one near my eye . it looks like it might be .at least the doctor said . I had a muel method of removing the spot of cancer on the other side . five slices they took to get it all . ok . sorry for bending your ears .

    I don't mind that you talk about your health. I pray that the place on your face will not be cancerous and hope you get another crown. They remove most of the tooth and leave a post for the crown to sit on. I hope it is not too painful.

    I lost a crown a few years ago and ended up having the rest of the tooth pulled and a bridge put in. At least I saw the dentist the day it happened. I was still teaching and was still at school but the children had gone home so I left and took care of my tooth.

Glad no cancer on your back and hoping the same with one on your face. Had some slicing and dicing on my arm back in the spring. It still looks nasty so guess that it will heal that way.....you can bend our ears on here any time!!!! It helps to get it out and you got alot on your plate at once

    I once broke a tooth eating a burrito. The restaurant had probably not done a good job cleaning the beans. At the time, I had no $, so I had that broken tooth for a few years. It got fixed last year. That restaurant is no longer in business.

I hope your dentition and other issues are resolved post haste!

my biggest problem .. Boredom

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

this allows me much leeway to do just about anything I want to do . start something and then get lost with .keep toss memories take me to a thousand places . Time on my hands leads to not doing more . I need to make time for me to do more for others . COMFORTABLE IS NOT WHAT I WANT TO BE . . If I feel uncomfortable then I can be more . do more . outside Me . over and above . I hope that I am making sense . emoticon emoticon emoticon


I walk daily three or more hours in addition to cleaning house and all that other spots that need me to take care of . I just get bored easily . want to do more for others .

    My mother use to say "If you tell me that you are bored you are just insulting yourself for not being good company so go outside and entertain yourself"

I think that when we stop using food to entertain us we have to get a lot more imaginative. You could make a list of things that you would like to do when you have time and bring it out when you start to feel bored.

Sometimes what we call bored is actually tired. If so Take a nap.

    I saw the title of your blog and just had to read it. When reading it, I thought "Did I write this?" An aha moment on my part. Now what do we do about it? People often suggest volunteering, but do we really want to do this and where would we volunteer? I'm thinking more along the lines that I would like to learn something new, something to keep my mind working and focused. Socializing would be nice - I will start with family and go from there. For awhile I was on a mission to go to yard/garage sales. I looked for things to use in my house and change things around. That helped a little, but I had to look through a lot of overpriced junk to find things. I hope you and I can find the answers we need. Housework and walking only go so far.

    Maybe I am just easily amused, but I don't think I have been bored since I was 9 years old. There is always a good book that needs to be read. I still work, selling real estate and between the computer, sparks, the gym, etc. I don't seem to have a lot of extra time. Always ready to get up in the mornings, because you never know what the day will bring. There are so many places to volunteer your services that would really love to see you. I can always find something that needs to be done, but I don't always have the time.
