Happy Monday…

Monday Morning

 Today I got up and it was so beautiful and peaceful out I just know God is watching us…I feel a song coming on.

 

This really is a beautiful song.  Last night I said my rosary.  It’s my go to prayer and I slept well.  I hope everyone is praying because God really is there and he’s listening.  Everything is going to be okay.  Here are some pictures and a short video of my Monday Morning.

I haven’t posted in awhile b/c someone commented that they read my blog so they could see my fat, ugly, old face.  You be the judge… 😉 . They will remain anonymous. Oh and I deleted the comment because this is my blog and I get to be the editor.  It’s my happy place, no room for that…sorry.  I talked to my mom and she told me I should pray for my enemies, but I’m not that generous and she told me she would.  I asked my guardian angel to do it for me so I figure I’m covered.

So many things have changed since then that I don’t care about that, I just know that I miss all of you so I’m going to post and write about this quarantine and national emergency.   I hope you are all doing well.  All the trials I have been through I have learned they were really a Blessing.  It’s God’s grace.  He’s setting the table and He will make sure that you have everything you need.  Keep the faith ❤ . 

 Stay safe everyone and, “Start where you are.  Use what you have.  Do what you can…Arthur Ashe.”

Blessings ❤ .

Happy Ash Wednesday

Almost forgot, but I didn’t…whew 🙂  It’s been a bit of a wonky day, didn’t sleep so good last night but that’s the beautius thing about being older.  You have had a lot of experience with wonky days and you just glide right over them 🙂  I did get ashes today b/c I always get ashes, and it’s cheese pizza for dinner.  Spring is right around the corner I think, however it is snowing right now.  About 2″s I’d say but I am planning our spring vacation and we are going back to Maine.  I absolutely love it there.  My heart and soul will always be a part of Maine.  

We are almost to Friday so that’s another good thing and it’s suppose to warm up … Y A Y

Write Anything Wednesday

First let me start out with a thank you from the bottom of my heart to my blogging family.  You give my days a purpose and that’s a huge thing to have in your life.  That being said, I have a couple of quotes I’d like to share with you.  I think they must of came from God b/c he always knows how to talk to me and keep me going so to him I say Amen and Thank You ❤ .

“Don’t worry about people God removed from your life.  He heard conversations you didn’t, saw things you couldn’t, and made moves you wouldn’t  ❤ .”

“What other’s think of you is none of your business.  Deprive your haters and detractors of any power over you and your life.  Their words do not define you.  Keep on living a positive blissful life ❤ .”

 

Share Your World…

These questions are brought to us this week by Melanie B Cee

Questions:

  1. What do you think of best friends of the opposite sex?  Or to put it another way “Can men and women ever be platonic friends?  Doesn’t sex always get in the way?”  I think we can be just platonic, but I just don’t think we were meant to be.   
  2. What is the greatest struggle you’ve overcome?  I have had 2 life changing struggles.  The first one was my car accident.  Traumatic Brain Injury (i.e. coma).  The accident happened on February 7, 1981 and the only thing I remember was waking up in the hospital with my sister (she’s a nurse) telling me I had been in a car accident and been in a coma since the accident.  It was March 21st, almost 2 months gone.  Left side was paralyzed.  I was only 21 a young married newlywed.  Had to rehab, but I was given the grace from god to push through and he restored my health.  The 2nd one was losing our 2nd son Sean Patrick on March 21st, 1984…I lost him in my 7th month of pregnancy from a neural tube abnormality, Anencephaly, so sad but he taught me so many lessons with his short life and made me an amazing mother ❤ …  God Blessed me with 3 more children, a daughter and 2 amazing son’s.  I always tell my daughter how important her life is b/c a baby had to give his life for her to be born.

  3. What is the darkest thought you’ve ever had?  I don’t really have dark thoughts.  I’m just don’t think about dark things.  Creeps me out too much 😉  I’m all about the light… What about the darkest thing you’ve done that you’ve never told anybody about?  Oh my teenage years were not so much dark as they were turbulent and that’s all I’m going to say about that. As I’m a mom and I’m not sure if the kiddos read this and I don’t think they should no about those things… (obviously you’ll be telling now if you choose to.  Telling might unburden you a little though.)   
  4. and one ‘fun’ one because I realize those others were pretty deep)  I think one of the  fun things I have done lately is dance.  I love to dance and I took lessons and danced the Tango at a Dance Recital.
  5. What is your least favorite food?  I’m thinking melon’s.  Any kind i.e. Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Honeydew…yadayadaydayada

GRATITUDE

Share a thought, write a story or poem or share a meme about gratitude.  If you’d like to.  As with the other questions, this is optional. 

There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it.  Surround yourself with the people who make you laugh, forget the bad and focus on the good.  Love the people who treat you right ❤ pray for the ones who don’t.  Life is too short to be anything but happy.  Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living…        ❤ …My Common Place Book ❤

Put Your Hand in the Hand
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself
And you can look at others differently
Put your hand in the hand of the man
From Galilee
My momma taught me how to pray
Before I reached the age of seven
When I’m down on my knees
That’s when I’m closest to heaven
Daddy lived his life, two kids and a wife
Well you do what you must do
But he showed me enough of what it takes
To get me through, oh yeh!
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself
And you can look at others differently
Put your hand in the hand of the man
From Galilee
Oh yeh!
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself
And you can look at others differently
Put your hand in the hand of the man
From Galilee
Oh yeh!
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man
Who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself
And you can look at others differently
Put your hand in the hand of the man
From Galilee
Oh yeh!
Put your hand in the hand of the man from Galilee
Put your hand in the hand of the man from Galilee, Oh yeh!
