“Don’t worry about the people from your past, there’s a reason they didn’t make it into yourfuture😉 .”
Today I’ll get to catch up on #jusjojan… The prompt for today is “Generosity.” Another great word!!! It brings positive thoughts of kindness and consideration. Both of what the world could use a lot of at this time.
” gen-er-os-i-ty…nounI was overwhelmed by the generosity of friends and neighbors <3 . It is so much better to give than receive. Saying that, You cannot keep it, unless you give it away … Which is true about so much in life <3 …
This was a gift our 4th son, the ballet dancer, brought home from China for us when he went there to dance with his company…I didn’t learn until this past Christmas when he visitedthat those markings in the pic were our name in Mandarin…How cool is that <3 . We love you Matthew <3 .
With this being the Christmas Season I started thinking about gifts…So many things that you can buy. I came to the conclusion that the best gifts cannot be bought. The best gifts are the ones given to you by God and your mom 😉 .
I must send thank you’s to my mom for giving me the love of music. She made sure I learned how to play the piano and sang in the choir. I can remember every Saturday morning she would play the music, usually classical (which I loved and studied on the piano) or Opera’s (which I didn’t care for at all). I did however fall in love with Musical Theater <3 .
I thought I would share with you all of my favorites song’s of the season or really anytime of the year. Today I am going to share with you one of the best classical singer’s, Andrea Bocelli performing “Hallelujah,” with his daughter. This is a new version that I just came upon today it is heartwarming…Enjoy
I have wasted all morning on the computer, so I might as well post something. I’m thinking I’m going to get my summer on with some road trip music first !!! I’ll start out with something for Connor <3 this one’s for you !!!
The next song I’m going to choose for my summer road trip is from Jackson Brown . Let’s go back to Rock n’ Roll and the 70’s Y A Y <3 !!!! This one’s for me !!!
I was looking for some pictures from the past Memorial Day’s and I came across all of the baby picture’s from all of us girl’s (the 4 sister’s)…I’ll share it with you, along with the Grandmama/Great Grandmama (my Mom)
Isn’t my mom so pretty <3 I love you Mom … It’s important to be a part of something so special <3 , a family … Thank you mom for being you <3 To the moon <3 .
I can’t believe I haven’t posted since last week. Just big blogging goal’s, I was even working on my editorial calendar (which is still a work in progress 😉 ) . It’s just gotten very busy around here all of the sudden like and I really haven’t had the time to blog. I’m busy with my spring cleaning, and I was so hoping I would have it all done by Memorial Day but that sure doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.
My Spring Cleaning has really turned into a new thing. Instead of cleaning, (which I’m not that fond of anymore, been there, done that) it’s turned into Spring Buying 😉 and Spring throwing away 🙂 … Shhh let’s keep the husband out of that. Let’s just say that my Target trips are my new workout 😉 . Don’t laugh, it’s a lot of working walking and buying and carrying it to the car, unloading, yadayadayada !!! But the house is really coming together. It’s fresh and new. I’ve been taking before and after pics and I’ll try posting them when I’m all done.
My absolutely fav of all are the new shelves in the kitchen…
I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to come up with this idea. I just love, love, love my kitchen. What motivated me was the spring cleaning thing and the new book I was reading this month…I have really been on a reading kick this year. I have already read 4 books this year. Which is a really great thing. The first book I read, our Connor and his wife Missy bought me this one, “Where the Crawdads Sing.”
Aren’t they just such an adorable couple…Love them to the moon <3 One of my favorite pics of them on their Wedding Day <3 .
Then I went on with the next 3. I’m thinking the Cookbook Club spurred me on to get the shelf thing going in my kitchen. One thing led to another and I’m back doing something I absolutely love, love, love to do…Cooking and Baking, who knew.
The daughter came over on Mother’s Day and she just had to do the same thing, so me and her dad were over at her house last weekend. Got to do another run to Target and the husband was busy assembling them at her house. She’s having the same fun I’m having b/c of course I had to get her the Instapot for her Mother’s Day gift to go on the shelves, right 😉 … Here how her shelves are progressing <3 Absolutely loving this !!!
You will see now that the democrats are back in power. Our freedoms will be taken away, b/c we don’t no how to handle them. Only big government can show us how to live. I’m staying in for 4 years. I want nothing to do with the train wreck that is about to happen. I have lived through enough democratic disaster’s to know what awaits us now. Iran, hostages, unemployment, lockdowns, mandatory everything, late-term abortion on demand, ccp, two standards of justice. One for the powerful, and one for us. I will be watching the weather channel and playing with my planner’s. I guess God thinks we need to learn another lesson because how does it go, “When you don’t learn from past mistakes, you are bound to repeat them.” Good luck everyone. Hope you are financially sound to survive what lays ahead. Because it’s not going to be good.
One thing that I am happy for is President Trump and his family. Guess what, they don’t have to put up with anymore of the crap that they have had to deal with for the last 4 plus years. If he should go to jail, then Hillary should be in the cell next to him. He at least saved us from having her for a president. I thought the democrat’s thought having a white man for president was so last century… So let’s just see how many people cancel me now. I really don’t care. Like I said in an earlier blog, they are coming for you next.
I’ll end this on a positive note as I knew writing would bring me to this place. There is good in everything, yes even your crosses that you have to carry. This cross I have to carry now will allow me to experience all of the things that bring me joy. I will write more, and journal. Archiving really is my passion. I will cook more and go outside and breath. I will not vote anymore b/c that’s just stupid unless you are on the right side of the election fraud. Life is short…Blessings <3 …
Good morning Blogger’s, hope everyone’s week is going smoothly. It seems to be a bit stressful at this point in our nation, but as my very wise grandmama use to say (and say quite often) “This too shall pass !!!” So what I’m doing at this point in my week is going to my happy place. That would be my Daily Planner. I have Mz. Serena up and running, (pictured below) and I’m also starting to set up, “The Mother Ship.” She will be my planner that keeps everything that is near and dear to my heart.
I really love planning my day !!! It just looks so pretty…I’m going to be posting what I do with my planner which for now I will call the Mother Ship. This year I am going to devote to J O Y !!!! Anything that does not bring joy into my life, well it is going to be removed. Life is short and I’m not wasting anymore time on things that do not bring me J O Y. My blog is a happy place for me and brings me joy. I love to write, I love to plan. Let’s do this <3 Happy Hump Day <3
