Questions

Fill in: ‘If I were really completely honest, I would say that …’ This is a question for ‘radical honesty’. What are the things you wouldn’t normally say? Things you would otherwise actually hide?  What’s on your mind? What would you really like to be able to say?
********************************************

I guess I normally don’t speak about my conservative morals & values b/c they aren’t likely to align with today. I don’t really hide them, it’s better just to keep your cards close to the vest. The people that really are important in my life know what they are and that is all that matters. Actually all that truly matters is me, but whatever. I write in my Common Place book quite often and one of the entries way back on February 16, 2013 was

Have you ever broken anything? What about rules?
*******************************************

I suppose that’s all I ever do is break the rules. The question I have to ask myself is who makes the rules?? Isn’t that why rules are made to be broken ?? I don’t care about these wordpress settings that keep changing and altering mid post, whatever…ugghhhhhhh

Are you  also  afraid of spiders? What is your biggest fear, other than spiders?  (if you’re not afraid of spiders, use your biggest phobia instead).
***********************************************

Spiders just creep me out. I mean how can you be afraid of something so small…Just smash it with a shoe or your foot. But whatever you do, don’t have your husband kill it b/c he hates them worse than you do and 9 x’s out of 10 he misses and it disappears under the bed!!! :0 Ahhhh OMGGGGGG

Do you think time goes faster as you get older?
***************************************************

I’m certain it does. Think of your life’s timeline as a roll of toilet paper…At the start it is big and bulky and takes some coaching to come down. When it gets to the end of the roll, well it just spins out of control right til it’s empty 😉 Am I right ??? You know I am 😉

GRATITUDE SECTION (as always, optional)

Please share something that really inspired you from this last week or month.

Tempest in a teapot and storm in a teacup

tempest in a teapot is a small problem or event that has been blown out of proportion. A tempest in a teapot is an American idiom, the British equivalent is a storm in a teacup. Other languages have similar idioms, including the French une tempete dans un verre d’eau, or a storm in a glass of water. The basic sentiment of a tempest in a teapot and a storm in a teacup seems to have originated in 52 B.C.E. in the writings of Cicero, in a phrase that translates as stirring up billows in a ladle. The Duke of Ormand, in a letter written in 1678, refers to something that is but a storm in a cream bowl. Both of the idioms a tempest in a teapot and a storm in a teacup seem to have originated in Scotland in the early half of the 1800s.

Who knew the reference was that. Like I said I always do what comes to mind first. When I looked at the prompt for #jusjojan and it was, “Tempest” this is what I thought of. Not only that in my reading for the New Year it said to learn something new everyday. Two birds with one stone, except I’m a day late as per usual with the prompt.

There are many times in my life I have experienced a, “Tempest in a Teapot 😉 ” I think that would be a good thing to control. Keeping life in a calmer perspective…How important is something ???

Like just not giving a care to how my blog is looking right now. Still trying to figure out this wonky wordpress…Whatever 😉 another snow storm is on the way but I don’t care. It’s Saturday and I’m in my warm house with my two favorite people, the husband and Rosie (albeit she’s our doogie <3 . )

Our Rosie <3
Sullivan’s Christmas Eve <3
What will be, will be Que Sera, Sera <3

I’m setting up my planner and going to have my leftover’s from dinner at Rosebud’s last night, so it’s all good.

Thankful Thursday…

I always like to think about all I have to be thankful for. Being grateful and thankful are the key to being happy. I have experienced many things in my life that were a challenge and if you’ve followed my blog you know many of them. I must admit though I am grateful for those experiences because they taught me much about life and myself.

All of them made me a stronger and better version of myself and for that I’m truly thankful for. I came out on the other side of it all a little wiser and learned that when life happens you just have to hold on a little tighter and realize you are not in control. There is something bigger than you and has a plan for your life. I have learned that you have to trust in that plan and believe it all happens for our good. I pray a lot and that has gotten me through all of it b/c sometimes that’s all you can do. The higher power is in control and I believe in God and his plan for me to get back to him.

When we were young <3 … 1990’s

After having my children and experience the gift of being a mom and seeing my children being born that is when I knew there was a God b/c only something that grand could create something so perfect. He took one from me, a son Sean Patrick, but that was all part of his plan. I didn’t understand it at the time and I don’t really understand it still. One thing I do know though is it was part of his plan for me and I have an angel in heaven. It made me a better mother and for that I’m grateful for. We will meet again <3 . I am have been blessed with 5 children and for that I will always be thankful for. Blessings Blogger’s and remember to say thank you at the end of the day and thank you when you are given a new day. Happy, Happy 2022 <3 .

Inspiration #118/Hallelujah

Just going through the Reader and came across this prompt from Mr. Jim . When I got up this morning, I’m always thankful for another day, I took the husband to the train…I do wish they would get that bus running again. He use to take it b/c it stopped right in front of the house and I could sleep in. I do like doing whatever and sleeping in, but I don’t mind that much driving him to the train because I get to be with my guy. He always looks so handsome when he’s off to work and he gives me such a nice kiss. Okay, I digress and let’s get back to the prompt, “Inspiration”.

This morning for some reason he just started singing one of our favorite songs, “Hallelujah.” This song truly is a song that embodies the word inspiration. He loves it as do I <3 . When we sing it, I always sing harmony and he does the melody. We are pretty geeky, but who cares 😉 . We are just happy to get all the song lyrics right, this one we know by heart <3 .

Hallelujah

The story behind this song is truly inspirational … They even wrote a book about this song and story behind it. The talent comes from Mr. Leonard Cohen..

My husband, the artist, sketched this out for me. He put this on my desk, where I sit every morning and said to me, “Write !!! You have stories to tell that people would love to read <3 ” It still sitting there, looking back at me. I still need to write. I do have stories to tell. So many, I really need to just write!!

Leonard Cohen <3/Elan Creations <3

I just don’t want to write about them on-line, I’m from a different generation 😉 . I write in an 80 page, composition notebook til it’s done and then I get another 80 page notebook and start to fill that one up. I guess I don’t want to be around when people read my story. I’m not ashamed of what I wrote, it’s just my story. That’s what writer’s do, they write. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes not so much but I’m the writer so I get to tell the story 😉 . Actually I hope they like it, get inspired from my tales, laugh about my life, and say yes that is definitely my mom <3 . I hope they can feel my presence when they read about my travels through my life. When I read letters from my mom in her handwriting, I know it’s my mom and feel her because I know that’s her handwriting. That’s probably why I write it down, you can see and feel someone through their handwriting…

I’ll close it out for now b/c I have to go cook dinner. It’s breakfast for dinner tonight <3 and it’s time to go…Blessings blogger’s, I’ll leave with one question. “What inspires you?” Blessings and it’s almost Friday… Y A Y <3

Song Lyric Sunday

This is a good one Mr. Jim. Me and the husband just went down his memory lane of when the girls use to dump him. It was always the same. “Let’s be friends, I need some time. I’m scared. ” He says there must be manual girls are given to dump a guy. He is too funny and always makes me laugh.

My song for today is, “Billy Ray Cyrus/Words by Heart”

Words by Heart

I was goin’ through the closet
Back in my old home
Found my letterman’s jacket, so I slipped it on
Deep in the pocket, still folded up tight
Was the letter you wrote to tell me goodbye
The minute I saw it I just had to smile
It smelled like old leather, as smooth as a child
I took a deep breath, then put it away
There was no need to read, I knew just what it would sayI know the words by heart, I know every line
From “this ain’t easy” to “you’ll get along just fine”
I know every comma, every question mark
No, I don’t have to look, I know the words by heartScenes like home movies flash through my head
The homecoming game, that night on my bed
The words that you wrote still cut me in two
How you said you still cared but that we were throughI know the words by heart, I know every line
From “this ain’t easy” to “you’ll get along just fine”
I know every comma, every question mark
No, I don’t have to look, I know the words by heartAin’t it funny how a memory 
Can play tricks on your mind
I don’t remember a thing from my classes
But I can quote you every lineI took off my jacket and put it away
With your note in the pocket 
Like I found it that day
Poured me a beer, then pictured your face
And drank a silent toast to things that time can’t eraseI know the words by heart, I know every line
From “this ain’t easy” to “you’ll get along just fine”
I know every comma, every question mark
No, I don’t have to look, I know the words by heartI know the words by heart, I know every line
From “this ain’t easy” to “you’ll get along just fine”
I know every comma, every question mark
No, I don’t have to look, I know the words by heart

I also have a second song that I enjoy watching. It reminds me of me back in the day and also sends a message to all my critics…Success is the best revenge. I will never, never quit <3 Blessing Blogger’s on your Sunday…I know I just posted this song by Toby Keith a couple of weeks ago, but I really love it…Obviously 😉
