Drizzeling here and DH not sure if the flea market will open today or not. Shoot there went my produce money.
Happy Fathers day for those who are lucky to be dad's. This fathers day is tough for me. My oldest Brother died last year on Father's Day. He lost his battle with cancer. He was 20 years my senior. I feel bad for his daughter. I send her a message and need to call her later to see how she is holding up.
Not sure how many of you believe in Ghosts or Spirits. I have had a few experiences that were sort of strange.
First my Dad on evening was having a heart attack. He had a few prior to this one. As my Mom and brothers went to the hospital. My sister in law (from my younger brother) and I along with my 3 month old nephew were the only ones in the house. About 8:30 pm we heard a cough. It was a deep hacking cough like my Dad's. I looked at my SIL and she looked at me. She asked me if it sounded like my dad's. It did. Later when my Mom got home she said my Dad had passed away. Later I asked her what time. She said 8:30pm. That inncident really help me feel good.
Last July shortly after my Brother passed we got a phone call. I don't remember the exact day but I know their wedding anniversary is the 4th of July. We didn't get to the phone in time and I looked at our caller ID it said my brothers house. So I called them and got their answering machine I left a message and when they called back they had been out for dinner. No one had been home.
I said maybe it was my brother calling to say "Hi". My Brother and his wife had worked all his life for Verizon and Bell Telephone. Over the past year we have gotten about 10 calls. All were when they were out of the house at work or what not. So each time I point my face to Heaven and say "Hi Pete, I love you and still miss you"
I realize there could be a lot of reasons that it happened but with no one home. I think it was him. But one other strange thing is when his wife calls me it says her first name. All the calls I get has my brother's first name.
Here is a nice story I wanted to share since it is about a Dad.

The Gardenia Corsage
A daughter's wish for her father's approval comes true—at the perfect moment.
By Edith Patterson
My father had always been an astute observer of human character. Within seconds of meeting someone, he could sum up their strengths and flaws. It was always a challenge to see if any of my boyfriends could pass Dad’s test. None did. Dad was always right—they didn’t pass my test either. After Dad died, I wondered how I’d figure it out on my own.
That’s when Jack arrived on the scene. He was different from any other guy I’d dated. He could sit for hours on the piano bench with my mother, discussing obscure composers. My brother Rick loudly announced that Jack wasn’t a turkey like the other guys I’d brought home. My sister, Denise, belly-laughed with him over old Danny Kaye films. And Jack was great with my brother Chuck, who has a mental disability.
One time, Chuck put his greasy hands, just dislodged from a cheeseburger, on Jack’s shoulders, kissed his cheek with ketchup-covered lips and called him by the wrong name, shouting, “Ah, Jeff, I luv ya!” Jack didn’t miss a beat. “I love you too, George!” Jack passed my family’s test. But what about Dad’s?
Then came the weekend of my mother’s birthday. Jack was coming down from his home in Milwaukee to Chicago. The day he was supposed to drive, I got a call: “Don’t worry,” he said, “but I’ve been in an accident.” His car had stalled; when he pulled over, another car careened into it. “I’m fine—but I need you to pick me up.”
Thank God he’s okay, I thought, as I drove up to Milwaukee. When I got there, we rushed to a flower shop for something for Mom. “How about gardenias?” Jack said, pointing out a beautiful white corsage.
“You never see those this time of year,” I said. The florist put the corsage in a box.
The entire ride, Jack was unusually quiet. “Are you all right?” I asked. We were pulling onto my mother’s street.
“I’ve been doing a lot of thinking,” he said. “I might be moving.” Moving? When was he going to tell me this? After he packed? Then he added, “Moving in with you.” I nearly put the car on the sidewalk.
“What?” I asked.
“I think we should get married,” he said. He told me he’d planned his proposal for a fancy restaurant, but after the accident, he decided to do it right away.
“Yes,” I whispered. We both sat stunned, tears running down our cheeks, unable to speak. I’d never known such a tender moment. If only Dad were here to give his final approval.
“Oh, let’s just go inside.” Jack laughed. We got out of the car and he walked up the driveway, carrying the corsage. My mother opened the door.
“Happy Birthday!” we shouted. Jack thrust the box at her. She opened it up. Suddenly, her eyes brimmed with tears. Jack and I looked at each other.
“Mom, what’s wrong?” I asked.
“I’m sorry,” she said, wiping her eyes. “This is only the second gardenia corsage I’ve ever received. I was given one years ago, long before you kids were born.”
“From who?” I asked.
“Your father,” Mom said. “He gave me one right before we were engaged.” My eyes locked on Jack’s as I blinked away tears. Dad’s test? I knew Jack had passed.

Ever have one of those days where if the slightest unhappy thing comes up your gonna cry? Or a regular day where the first joke has you in a great mood? I am think I am in between. This is kinda of a rambling blog.
First the other day I watched Oparh and she had a special report about how there are so many homeless people all over building Tent Cites to live in. There are so many people having to live there. I fear this for us. I have to use oxygen when I sleep. I owe the oxygen company money as it is. I am don't know how we woud live if that happened.
The Eye doctor came out at my home. Any doctor visits I have the doctor comes to me. There is a very nice service called "visitiing physicians" who has their own Doctor, Foot Doctor, Geriatrics, Nurse Practioner and Blood Techs. They come to my home when I need it. Good thing they are around me otherwise I can't get to the doctor anymore until I have the wheelchair to go. Still waiting on the state to approve me.
I had asked the Eye Doctor to come because I have been having trouble seeing. It had been 2 years since I had an exam. Being a diabetic I can have one a year. But not being able to get out has been hard to get there.
He did a thorugh exam and found I have bleeding behind the eyes again. I had this a few years ago but it went away when my blood sugars were stable. My blood sugars have been so wacky since I was in the hospital in March.
I have had to take my blood sugars 4-5 times a day and dose insulin as I need to. Insulin is so expensive but I have had to do it. I had to pay the doctor $90 for the exam for contacts. I have been wearing disposable ones for years.
He suggested switching to glasses or for now at least taking them out when I sleep. I was going to just get the glasses but he needed $200. for the glasses and the eye glass examination. So I took the cheaper route for now and will just take my contacts out at night. I just had to take the lesser of the two for now. Once I can afford the glasses I will order them.
After the eye doctor the news was coming on and we find out there is a sports caster named Gary Papa who has been battling cancer, had passed away. It was very sad. I remember growing up with this man. It made me think of my Brother who lost his life last June to cancer. Not too long ago the Philadelphia Phillies Baseball team announcer passed away also. I cried for hours watching about Gary's life and his wife and children. I pray for them as I know losing a loved one is hard but with so many fans it must be harder.
We had some foreclosure documents come in the mail yesterday. Our bankruptcy has been dismissed and we contacted our lawyer about what to do now. He wasn't in his office and won't be back until Monday. It seems all legal things we recieve from the mail comes on Fridays. Because it makes my weekends a little more nervous I guess. I like taking care of things as they come. Not having to wait.
We also recieved a letter from my DH's unemployment and he has until August to get a job. He keeps looking but there are none in this area. He isn't picky. We have had him work before at $7 an hour. The most he ever made was around $12. My husband never graduated and that makes it harder for him to get employment sometimes.
So yeah I am in between today. I have been thinking about life Thinking about God. See back before I was disabled and I worked I didn't take time for prayer. I didn't think of God on a daily basis. I beleived in god but the only God I ever knew from the church I went to when I was a child was all "Hellfire and Brimstone" You know how some people get very "rightoues" My Brother who has mental issues from Vietnam use to be like this. He scared me at times when he talked.
There was never any hope in the sermons he listened to. They were very sad and boring.
After I was working my sister oined a Christan church that was wonderful. I was working 6-7 days a week and couldn't or didn't attend. But I like their outlook on God. I had a Dear, sweet lady I worked with who was like a second "mom" to me pass away. She was African American and I went to her funeral. The serves in her church was so moving. They sang so pretty. I was measmorized by them. I loved it.
When my DH and I got married we got married in a church. We even attened services for a while. After time my sickness and weight became too much to go. One morning I could not sleep and I was searching through the TV and I came acrossed Joel Osteen. I watch the program and was so inspired by him. That is why I think he got his nickname the "smiling preacher".
When ever I get down on life or my situation I read or watch his messages. He inspires me to what I feel I have become over the last few years. So even though real life is wanting to keep my mind and spirit down or sad or nervous I am at peace today. I am Happy. Because I chose to be. With God all things are possible and he has me here for a purpose. I might not know why or how but I am here for a reason.

Just in the time I started writing this blog my husband came in. It had rained down at the flea market. Which is now going to cost us our food money. But! A lady vendor down there gave him a bunch of cat food and treats. At least that is one thing off out "shoulders". See god will provide. He will get us through. One way or another we will get to our goals and dreams.
There is always Hope.
Here is a passage I have kept that is my favorite. Below that is a link to his website if you would like to know more about him. Many already do.
Does there seem to be a problem waiting for you no matter where you turn? Do you sometimes wonder if your dreams are ever going to come to pass? Maybe you've asked why God would allow you to struggle in your job, your relationships, your health, or some other area of life. God allows you to go through challenges because He knows it's the struggle of life that builds strength in you. If God simply delivered you from every struggle every time, then you may not continue to grow and learn to trust Him. When you persevere through difficult times, you'll begin to realize a greater level of joy, peace, victory, and abundance than you ever dreamed possible. Remember, God loves you too much to leave you where you are. He's preparing you for something better! - Joel Osteen

Not too much personally going on. I do have an eye doctor coming to check my eyes. I have been having trouble seeing and I am hoping it isn't from the diabetes. We will see. All I do know I am so tired of sqinting my eyes. ha!
Ok so you know I like to pass on items I found touching. Here are two stories. Why two because I couldn't figure out which one I liked more. They both made me bawl like a baby. But, in a good way. You may want to grab a tissue.
The first one is a story I found author unknown. The second was an email. I think I had read before but haven't in a long time. It was written by Karen (the mom) and sent in to Woman's Day magazine.
The last paragraph says to pass it on to 4 people. I changed it a little. You will see why if you read it to the end.
I FOUND JESUS THERE
The surgeon sat beside the boy's bed; the boy's parents sat across
from him. "Tomorrow morning," the surgeon began, "I'll open up your
"You'll find Jesus there," the boy interrupted.
The surgeon looked up, annoyed. "I'll cut your heart open," he
continued, "to see how much damage has been done..."
"But when you open up my heart, you'll find Jesus in there." The
surgeon looked to the parents, who sat quietly.
"When I see how much damage has been done, I'll sew your heart and
chest back up and I'll plan what to do next."
"But you'll find Jesus in my heart. The Bible says He lives there. The
hymns all say He lives there. You'll find Him in my heart."
The surgeon had had enough. "I'll tell you what I'll find in your heart.
I'll find damaged muscle, low blood supply, and weakened vessels. And
I'll find out if I can make you well."
"You'll find Jesus there too. He lives there."
The surgeon left. The surgeon sat in his office, recording his notes
from the surgery: "...damaged aorta, damaged pulmonary vein,
widespread muscle degeneration. No hope for transplant, no hope for cure.
Therapy: painkillers and bed rest. Prognosis:" here he paused, "death
He stopped the recorder, but there was more to be said. "Why?" he asked
"Why did You do this? You've put him here; You've put him in this pain;
and You've cursed him to an early death. Why?" The Lord answered and
said, "The boy, My lamb, was not meant for your flock for long, for he
is a part of My flock, and will forever be. Here, in My flock, he will
feel no pain, and will be comforted as you cannot imagine. His parents
will one day join him here, and they will know peace, and My flock will
continue to grow."
The surgeon's tears were hot, but his anger was hotter. "You created
that boy, and You created that heart. He'll be dead in months. Why?"
The Lord answered,
"The boy, My lamb, shall return to My flock, for he has done his duty:
did not put My lamb with your flock to lose him, but to retrieve another
The surgeon wept.
The surgeon sat beside the boy's bed; the boy's parents sat across from
him. The boy awoke and whispered, "Did you cut open my heart?"
"Yes," said the surgeon.
"What did you find?" asked the boy.
"I found Jesus there," said the surgeon.

"THE MIRACLE OF A BROTHERS SONG."
Like any good mother, when Karen found out that another baby was on the way,
she did what she could to help her 3-year-old son, Michael, prepare for a new sibling. They found out that the new baby was going to be a girl, and day after day, night after night, Michael sang to his sister in Mommy's tummy. He was building a bond of love with his little sister before he even
The pregnancy progressed normally for Karen, an active member of the Panther Creek United Methodist Church in Morristown, Tennessee. In time, the labor pains came. Soon it was every five minutes, every three ...every minute. But serious complications arose during delivery and Karen found herself in hours of labor. Would a C-section be required?
Finally, after a long struggle, Michael's little sister was born. But she was in very serious
condition. With a siren howling in the night, the ambulance rushed the infant to the neonatal intensive care unit at St. Mary's Hospital, Knoxville, Tennessee.
The days inched by. The little girl got worse. The pediatrician had to tell the parents, "There is very little hope. Be prepared for the worst." Karen and her husband contacted a local cemetery about a burial plot. They had fixed up a special room in their house for their new baby but now they found themselves having to plan for a funeral.
Michael, however, kept begging his parents to let him see his sister. "I want to sing to her," he kept saying. Week two in intensive care looked as if a funeral would come before the week was over. Michael kept nagging about singing to his sister, but kids are never allowed in Intensive Care. Karen made up her mind, though. She would take Michael whether they liked it or not! If he didn't see his sister right then, he may never see her alive.
She dressed him in an oversized scrub suit and marched him into ICU. He looked like a walking laundry basket. But the head nurse recognized him as child and bellowed, "Get that kid out of here now! No children are allowed." The mother rose up strong in Karen, and the usually mild mannered lady glared steel-eyed right into the head nurse's face, her lips a firm line. "He is not leaving until he sings to his sister!"
Karen towed Michael to his sister's bedside. He gazed at the tiny infant losing the battle to live. After a moment, he began to sing. In the pure-hearted voice of a 3-year-old, Michael sang: "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey---" Instantly the baby girl seemed to respond. The pulse rate began to calm down and become steady. "Keep on singing, Michael," encouraged Karen with tears in her eyes. "You never know, dear, how much I love you, Please don't take my sunshine away-" as Michael sang to his sister, the baby's ragged, strained breathing became as smooth as a kitten's purr.
"Keep on singing, sweetheart!!!" "The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping, I dreamed I held you in my arms..." Michael's little sister began to relax as rest, healing rest, seemed to sweep over her. "Keep on singing, Michael." Tears had now conquered the face of the bossy head nurse. Karen glowed. "You are my sunshine, my only Sunshine. Please don't, take my sunshine away..."
The next day...the very next day...the little girl was well enough to go home! Woman's Day Magazine called it "The Miracle of a Brother's Song." The medical staff just called it a miracle. Karen called it a miracle of God's love!
NEVER GIVE UP ON THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE, LOVE IS SO INCREDIBLY POWERFUL
*~**~**~The last paragraph says to pass it on to 4 people. I wanted to share it with Spark People because they have touched my life in the most wonderful way. ~**~**~
My PRAYER FOR ALL WHO READ THIS:.
May today there be peace within you. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing that you are a child of God. Let His presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, and to bask in the sun. It is there for each and every one of you.
Life is good. Have a Wonderful Day!

Rainy here today. I wanted to sleep and sleep....hehe! Won't cause my body would revolt against me later. So I am up and keeping busy. I was busy doing some searches on what I wanted to blog about today.
Negative and poison people. Whatever you call them.
Now my Mom, who I love dearly was a bit of a persimiss. She wasn't groucy, don't get me wrong, just when I had a dream she would bring me back to reality. I am a Pieces and I tend to dream a lot. That is acording to the people who do horospcopes anyway. So I think it helped me in some ways, in others I think it took away some of my confidence.
My DH is a grouch at times and can be SO, SO, SO negative that I can't even snap him out of it. Then he goes after my "happy" mood. I even one day told him he is hinging on verbal abuse. I love my husband but when his is grouchy he get mad over the simpliest of things. Then he throws stuff. Don't worry he isn't physical with me. He leaves the room when he is really agree.
15 to 30 minutes he is back and all is well. Of course then I am down.
This tantrum happens maybe once everyweek or two. I think I see it more now that he isn't working. He is a "get up and go" type of person. So when he isn't busy I think it gets to him. Also to on my behalf asking him for his help a lot can get him stressed. Also with not having the right equipment makes him mad. Because deep down he wants the best for me.
See I know that if you send out bad things all the time what you get back is bad. God is an Awesome God and he doesn't want us to be unhappy. So I keep trying to teach my husband this and it just is taking me a while getting in there so to speak. He is a hard headed at times. But no ones perfect. LOL if only he was as perfect as me! Ha!!! rofl. Now I cracking myself up.
One of the reasons is he forgets what I would ask him for. Then I have to repeat it. Old Age Syndrome coming on. This happens when the TV is on. Ha! Can you get divorced over a tv? Joking. Not that bad. I have to admit I do get a little scared? Not scared.....Cautious? yes more caustious. Because if he upped and walked out that door I don't know what I would do. I have my sister as my only relative living near me and she doesn't have room or the resourse for me. Which would them put me in a nursing home. Sorry I gave too much detail again. I have no one else to talk to so my blog is my friend. Makes me feel better telling others.
So anyway today for all you Positive people out there who are being pulled down by Negative people, thoughts, issues or whatever. Here are two stories I like to read. It makes me more confident and re-focuses my mind into the "Sunny" side of life. And my husband sat and let me read them to him. My old sweetie is back.

If someone betrays you once, it's his fault; if he betrays you twice, it's your fault. Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people. God gives every bird it's food, but He does not throw it into it's nest.

What Life Is All About
Life isn't about keeping score. It's not about how many friends you have. Or how many people call you. Or how accepted or unaccepted you are. Not about if you have plans this weekend. Or if you're alone. It isn't about who you're dating, who you use to date, how many people you've dated, or if you haven't been with anyone at all. It isn't about who you have kissed. It's not about sex. It isn't about who your family is or how much money they have. Or what kind of car you drive. Or where you're sent to school.
It's not about how beautiful or ugly you are. Or what clothes you wear, what shoes you have on, or what kind of music you listen to. It's not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, brown, or green. Or if your skin is too light or too dark.
It's not about what grades you get, how smart you are, how smart everyone else thinks you are, or how smart standardized tests say you are. Or if this teacher likes you, or if this guy/girl likes you. Or what clubs you're in, or how good you are at "your" sport. It's not about representing your whole being on a piece of paper and seeing who will "accept the written you".
But life is about who you love and who you hurt. It's about who you make happy or unhappy purposefully. It's about keeping or betraying trust. It's about friendship, used as sanctity, or as a weapon. It's about what you say and mean, maybe hurtful, maybe heartening. About starting rumors and contributing to petty gossip. It's about what judgments you pass and why. And who your judgments are spread to.
It's about who you've ignored with full control and intention. It's about jealousy, fear, pain, ignorance, and revenge. It's about carrying inner hate and love, letting it grow and spreading it.
But most of all, it's about using your life to touch or poison other people's hearts in such a way that could never occurred alone. Only you choose the way these hearts are affected and those choices are what life is all about.

Ok so I am a bit weird. Mind you I am weirder before I fully wake up. It is 5:20 am as I write this. So I made a post on a forums with a joke picture hoping to brighten someone's day. Apparently I wasn't that funny. I like to have a positive attitude and try to share that with others. Life is too short not to "chose" to be happy. Other people are different and it is all good. Variety is the spice of life.
I got to thinking about smiles. Ok your thinking "Ut Oh she lost it again"
STOP! Wait!!! Please let me finish!
Ok, if your still here so I was thinking of smiles so I been surfing around. I found out some GREAT News!
Apparently Smiling is good for your health! Imagine that! WOW! I never knew THAT! Ok, well I sort of guess maybe it might be but here are some real facts from one page I found
1. Smiling Makes Us Attractive We are drawn to people who smile. There is an attraction factor. We want to know a smiling person and figure out what is so good. Frowns, scowls and grimaces all push people away -- but a smile draws them in.
2. Smiling Changes Our Mood Next time you are feeling down, try putting on a smile. There's a good chance you mood will change for the better. Smiling can trick the body into helping you change your mood.
3. Smiling Is Contagious When someone is smiling they lighten up the room, change the moods of others, and make things happier. A smiling person brings happiness with them. Smile lots and you will draw people to you.
4. Smiling Relieves Stress Stress can really show up in our faces. Smiling helps to prevent us from looking tired, worn down, and overwhelmed. When you are stressed, take time to put on a smile. The stress should be reduced and you'll be better able to take action.
5. Smiling Boosts Your Immune System Smiling helps the immune system to work better. When you smile, immune function improves possibly because you are more relaxed. Prevent the flu and colds by smiling.
6. Smiling Lowers Your Blood Pressure When you smile, there is a measurable reduction in your blood pressure. Give it a try if you have a blood pressure monitor at home. Sit for a few minutes, take a reading. Then smile for a minute and take another reading while still smiling. Do you notice a difference?
7. Smiling Releases Endorphins, Natural Pain Killers and Serotonin Studies have shown that smiling releases endorphins, natural pain killers, and serotonin. Together these three make us feel good. Smiling is a natural drug.
8. Smiling Lifts the Face and Makes You Look Younger The muscles we use to smile lift the face, making a person appear younger. Don't go for a face lift, just try smiling your way through the day -- you'll look younger and feel better.
9. Smiling Makes You Seem Successful Smiling people appear more confident, are more likely to be promoted, and more likely to be approached. Put on a smile at meetings and appointments and people will react to you differently.
10. Smiling Helps You Stay Positive Try this test: Smile. Now try to think of something negative without losing the smile. It's hard. When we smile our body is sending the rest of us a message that "Life is Good!" Stay away from depression, stress and worry by smiling.
AND IF THAT ISN'T ENOUGH HERE ARE A FEW QUOTES ABOUT SMILING.
We are drawn to people who smile. There is an attraction factor. We want to know a smiling person and figure out what is so good. Frowns, scowls and grimaces all push people away -- but a smile draws them in.
"Frown and you frown alone, but smile and the whole world smiles with you." The whole world? Not just any smile will do, though. Here's how to develop a genuine, infectious smile that can make a bad date turn good, seal a business deal, and help you make friends wherever you go.

A smile is something you can't give away; it always comes back to you. ~Author Unknown
A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give. ~Author Unknown
