Happy times ...

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

The time has flown once again... but it didn't fly by without some great times involved ! I love being at home .. love love love it ... and when the house is clean and something wonderful is cooking .. I love it even more.
I have been working like a mad woman at getting everything moved into our new shop and offices that my home was put on the back burner ... I just wasn't home enough!!
I worked like the wind and even enjoyed watching a semi final football game with my 21 year old grand daughter .. did some reading and studying .. whitened my pearly whites , managed to get in some wonderful pet time ,, and most of all cooked .. I love to cook!! Too bad there wasn't an army to eat it all, but I will take containers to work so our lunches are worry free!!
Going from one huge cramped office with two desks etc in it to four offices is mind boggling .. I'm going to have to do other peoples books to earn my keep now .. I'm so looking forward to being able to get the daily stuff that I do (government .. both levels , pension plan . health coverage and banking ... then play !!!
Sure I will look busy and I will be but I will be Sparking and catching up on relationships that had to be set aside for a bit due to all the other chaos of late.
I love to journal and write so I will get back to my secret letters that I used to send out ... nothing better than being able to make someone Else's day a bit better and have it a secret... Sparks of Love is a little hobby of mine that I started when my exmother in law passed away .. her maiden name was Sparks and I wanted to keep her loving , kind memory alive.
Life is so amazing when you can tune out the life suckers and concentrate on the life savers ...

Watching the football game with my grand daughter was a hoot .. grandma had a beer she had tea and we both had popcorn , during the breaks we talked about her after school job at the inner city day care (she is studying social work 4th year) I am so proud of the woman she is .. she shared with me how sad it is when the children act out because they are scared, lonely , not cared for well or as in the case of one 7 year old boy recently put in foster care because his father wasn't taking care of him. As I listened to Meagan share her soul and how these little hearts effect her ... it came to me that our Christmas this year will include all of these children. So now grandma bear is trying to figure out how we as a family can either contribute to the day care and make a difference as well as buy a suitable gift for each child that will speak to their soul so they know they are loved!

Well if I don't hit the water and get to work my play time will be postponed .... and I sure don't want that ..
Have a fantastic day dear friends .. take care of you mind body and spirit then extend yourself to others to help take care of them too!!!

    WOW...this beautiful blog hit me right between the eyes! I SO enjoyed it and enjoyed getting to know you and your beautiful granddaughter. As for the plaquette you shared...absolutely TOTALLY agree! You never know sensitivity until you've been knocked to your knees all bloody and bruised!

    We used to think we owned the world...all high faluttin' and money rich...when we lost our son we learned VERY quickly that money means absolutely NOTHING when you lose the one you want to share it with! Sobbering...but life altering in a good way.

    Our circle of friends are still very wealthy...we are now the small minnows in the big pond...but you know...I look at them with some pity. They may be cash rich but they are so fearful of losing it...or the platform they stand on that they have forgotten the human condition. That is having a's quite the life education...seeing that they have family but put their big buck status even in front of them.

    They can never know...and I surely hope they never have to know what losing a child feels like. You lose a huge part of yourself, you definitely lose your future...but it's okay because you know that your angel is ALWAYS with just in a different way. I've been blessed to share my story and meet other mothers who have faced this loss...right here on spark.

    I like you love to share a little compassion (because I now am entirely familiar with it) before I couldn't quite get the hang of it...all distracted with the fullness of myself and my so called stature in the world! Nonsense...we are all equal...ALL!

    I too LOVE my house...just love it. That's why we are fighting SO hard to save it. But if that doesn't happen...something else will come along...I just plan to make it as hard and as miserable as possible for these greedy banks to continue the stealing.

    Gosh...a book...sorry...writers write! emoticon other thought for the about a little Christmas party with some little special treat (learning associated) for each of them. Maybe you could even get one of the big toy suppliers to help out? I bet a little learning video game might fill some of the void these poor angels face in their daily lives? Just a thought. emoticon emoticon
