Nugget 4 Today!

Maryland was great and so was Virginia but as I am getting on the road I sat and pondered over a few things and realized the following:
1. Too much trouble brings DYSFUNCTION
We all have a bit of crazinesss in our families – unable to function normally, properly, etc.; of or characterized by abnormal or impaired psychosocial functioning: a dysfunctional family, dysfunctional behavior. Learn how to recognize trouble so that it does not make you operate in dysfunction and you feel that the behavior is normal!
2. Too much rain and storms brings BITTERNESS
Left unchecked, rain or water can damage the frame of your house (your mind – your spiri ) and cause harmful mold, mildew, and ultimately rotted-wood problems. The constant rain / problems that keep occurring in a person’s life will cause you to become bitter. Constant family issues, people aroudn you dying repeatedly and unexpected, constant financial problems, broken relationship after relationship can cause a person to feel as if nothing but “raining” problems / negativity keeps happening in their lives. Too much rain will indeed make a person bitter without ANY sunshine being seen every now and then.
3. Too much sun brings PRIDEFULNESS
Too much sin can kill, too much of anything is not good and we all know that. However in the sense that I am referring to means too much sun can make one too proud / bring prideful.  Sunshine makes people smile, feel good and knows that “all is well” … is great!
However, with the many blessings / favor happening can cause one to forget to appreciate how the sun actually came about, always “expecting” the sun to be there and to rise every morning! If a person only always experiences the sun, the happy days, the shining light – it can be a harmful thing because when the rain and the storm comes ( because it will ) it causes shock and like we see in REAL LIFE, people cannot take it to the point they commit suicide and sometimes go on “stress” killing sprees.
When a person is prideful their ears are clogged and their vision is blurry and their balance is very off kiltered. With pride being 1 of the 7 deadly sins….. you can imagin! Pride is at the bottom of almost every mistake that a person has made in life.

Monday Message!

Welp…it is that day again that most people have grown to hate and it is called Monday! I beseech you to change your mind set on Sunday so that you can enter into your week in peace!

A single moment of understanding can flood a whole life with meaning and Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain but it takes character and self  control to be understanding and forgiving. 

Practice working on yourself instead of worrying about what the next day will bring… Negative thinking will run you down in the worse way! Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul; unbelief in denying  them.

Find peace with yourself by accepting not only what you  are, but what you are never going to be! Also, please keep constantly in mind in how many things you yourself have witnessed changes  already. The universe is change, life is understanding.
The best cure for worry, depression, melancholy, brooding, is to go deliberately  forth and try to lift with one’s sympathy the gloom of somebody else.   Man is always inclined to be intolerant towards the thing, or person, he hasn’t  taken the time adequately to understand…
Just try and remember that…………. Life is the first gift, love is the second, and understanding the third & everything else will follow suit via your own decision making – so be wise!
Make yourself have a good day!!! I DID!

Quick Moments

Welp…. what do you do when you are about to walk to your car and your son sees a big tall tree and he RUNS and climbs up the branches!!!!???!!!!??? Well, if it is me – I TAKE PHOTOS!

Quick and Random moments seem to hold the most value…the most importance and great memories with friends and family!

My life as well as my crazy son have soo soo many ” all of a sudden moments ” that a camera always need to be available! I used to be the type of mother who NEVER wanted my son to get dirty and wanted him to remain like a crazy walking fashion forwad and preppy Coleman Billboard!  tell you…. he was just as shocked as I was when I allowed him to just go and run and jump around in the grass and just climb trees at random….. ( with no fussing saying  – your going to get DIRTY!! ) LOL

I did not even have the heart to fuss at him and REMIND HIM that I needed to go home and rest because I have been down for the count…tied up in wires….and being poked for the last 2 days. Right when I was thinking that to myself – he came over and just grabbed me and hugged me and said that he was so happy to see that you are alright!……

Well after that good and sweet love and concern from my boy…. I decided to do what he was doing… hanging on the tree! LOL… I am only entitled to live once … enjoying each moment instead of each random day is really blessing me…

I guess this would be a great example of STOPPING and smelling the roses! It was nice to not be stuck to an agenda and letting my VERY mature 9 1/2 year old boy just be a child “at total random”……… He felt and looked so FREE and so did I! Living in the moment is a nice feeling!!!
