For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

In times of bleakness humanity rises. Waiting here for Irma. Remembering 9-11-2001 & Harvey...

Here in Atlanta we are awaiting the damage from Irma today.  I feel so bad for the people of Florida and two weeks ago Texas.  The earthquake in Mexico,  Now there is Jose getting ready to come to others. 
And the fires out west. 

Can you imagine your life - losing every thing you own?  All your pictures - all your papers - clothes - food - recipes - computers- tv's - food - maybe your glasses - your pet -shoes - water - electricity - gas cars -imagine not being able to make a cup of coffee in the morning..  Your driver's license, credit cards, social security cards, what else can you think of?  Sandra/Madsnapper said they have their ID's in a plastic bag and tied up ready to put around her neck.  Taping glasses on.  It is just amazing what damage these storms area doing. 

I know everyone is praying.



This day bothered my heart so much.  I don't ever think I could forget it if I wanted to and I don't want to.  Such tragedy for nothing. What a waste of lives.  How could anyone believe strong enough to do something so horrible and I don't think he thought twice about it. 

Teach your kids what happened, be in love with America and show them how to love America.  

Now the good thing - just as in 9-11 people are coming together - we didn't care about who voted for who - what nationality - what color - we were one and that is what we are doing now.

We are AMERICA!  One for all and all for one.

Do you think we need disasters to show us what is really important?  I don't for one minute think God causes these disasters - but I do believe He can use them to show us what is important.  Sometimes I think we lose site of what is really and truly important.

Okay I will quit being negative and go on to something lighter.


This is Betsy - she is my car - which I love - a 2000 Honda CRV with 173,000 miles on it!
I hope she runs for the rest of my life.
I do think her transmission might be slipping - like all of us older crones - lol.
People can recognize my car now that it is so old - lol.

Now if I ever won the lottery or had a lot of money - this is the car I would replace her with!
Yep I think she is so cute.

My hubs would kill me, but this is what he does a lot of days with ole Disco.  His retirement is eating - sleeping - and flying his model planes.  

NOW THIS IS 100% TRUE and I know because I do it many nights when I am having trouble falling asleep.

I first read about it from Dr. Andrew Weil - the health guru doctor.  It still takes me one or two practice breathes to release to the count of 8.

Okay and something I will be watching is the new Dance With The Stars.  
Who is going to watch it with me?

 – Barbara Corcoran with Keo Motsepe

    for everything you do flows from it.
