Just because Thanksgiving Day has passed, there’s no reason to stop being grateful……..

Something that has brought a positive change in my life recently has been the practice of turning negative statements around and finding something in the circumstance for which to be grateful.

“I am thankful for my 11 year old – PRE -teen-ager who complained about doing dishes BEFORE he left to go with his dad, because that means he is at home, not out on the streets somewhere.

“I am thankful for the taxes that I pay, because it means that I’m employed. “I am thankful for the mess I have to clean up at my house, because it means I’m more fortunate than thousands of people around the world. I have a home.

“I am thankful for the clothes that fit a little too snugly, because it means I have plenty to eat. “I’m thankful for my shadow that watches me work, because it means I’m outside in the sunshine. “I am thankful for my mother’s house SMELLING HORRIBLE of cooking gizzards..chitlings etc… because that means that she is STILL ALIVE to drive me insane of eating these nasty things and making my clothes stink” LOL

“I’m thankful for my oldest son who is in college being moody over the last few weeks but he makes me smile everytime he CHOOSES to text and call me. Also for my daughter being even MORE moodier but smiles when she emails me.

“I’m thankful for all the complaining about government and politics, because it reminds me I live in a country that allows me freedom of speech. “I’m thankful for the parking spot I found all the way at the end of the lot, because it means I have the strength and ability to walk the distance.

“I’m thankful for my heating bill, because it means I am warm. “I’m thankful for the lady behind me in church who sings off-key, because it means I am blessed with the gift of hearing. “I’m thankful for the pile of laundry that reminds me that I — and my family — have plenty of clothes to wear.

“I’m thankful for weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day, because it means I’m capable of working hard and making a contribution to the lives of others. “I’m thankful each day when the alarm goes off, and I hear it, because it means I’m still alive. There is still time to serve God and others. There are still opportunities to make a difference.

“Each day is a gift. Each burden holds a blessing, and every moment of life offers an opportunity that will come only once in a lifetime.

“I am thankful — just because — I am.”

I swear this restaurant is such a family atmosphere BUT I’m not too keen on the overall experience there…….
image

Besides “the game playing area”…..    it feels like an overly fast paced restaurant that wants to get as many people IN ….just as much as they want to get the people OUT.
image

Every time I’m at this place I feel like I’m a part of a herd of CATTLE…. Eat…talk then hirry and get to the play area because we need this table!!!
imageAt LEAST that “the company” was amazing so it made it all worth it!!! …Uggghhh…. not MY favorite restaurant  ….

Friendship With Fellowship


image

I really enjoy having a bunch of different friendships in MY LIFE. …. Honey, JUST like Christ, #diversity Rocks!!!!!

image

Me and my girlpals have a “standing appointment” every single week that we meet up and hang out…
image

After the last few months, weeks, days and hours that I have been having.. ….. Especially worrying about my Mommy!!! Whew, Seeing REAL friends / girlpals is just what I need!!!! LOL ..we eat..laugh..FREELY talk about God..life…relationshops…..work…being angry….being happy etc…etc…etc… ans more etc…etc..
image

Having friends BUT no fellowship is NOT a relationship! !!!!! In life, we have to be open to ALL types of friends because YOU will never know who God is trying to connect us to and what God is trying to do for us…..
image

Be open!!! I can tell you honestly that it’s been a blessing AND its worth it!

Celebrating Family –


image
image

Oh how I cannot explain how being with LOVED ones can make you feel – Life can be so up and down at times – so when you are able to spend your time with Family – it is a wonderful feeling –

image
image

As always…. I am re inventing myself – my thoughts – my choices – my views – my stances – my morals – my values – my beliefs and I am becoming a better individual for Christ’s sake –

image
image

image

I am just humbled to feel loved – humbled to be loved – humbled to share in life’s experiences – etc..etc.etc… Being grateful indeed is a choice – I choose – to love – to be happy – to live – to be inspired ….

image

No one knows when their last day will be upon this evolving earth to see your loved ones – so why NOT spend AS MUCH TIME as possible with them? It DOES NOT have to be for any apparent reason – how about “just because”…

image

image

These last few months have really have me in a very DIFFERENT – WEIRD – INTERESTING – INSPIRING – EYE OPENING – TRANSPARENT etc…etc..etc.. for ME –

Do you NOT feel that indeed life is too short? Are you wasting time with situations…people..things that you know that you should not be?
image

image

It is 2013 and will be 2014 in almost 5 SECONDS…..

Life is short and it is crazy that people will settle for anything that they do not want in their life – why be miserable when you actually have the POWER to “fix things” yourself –

image

Peace and Love are two PLATINUM things that I search for – hold onto and need in my life

Another Random –

Do as little harm to others as you can; make any sacrifice for your true friends; be responsible for yourself and ask nothing of others; and grab all the fun you can. Don’t give much thought to yesterday, don’t worry about tomorrow, live in the moment, and trust that your existence has meaning even when the world seems to be all blind chance and chaos. When life lands a hammer blow in your face, do your best to respond to the hammer as if it had been a cream pie.
image

Life is a beautiful things in spite of all the horrid things that can take place in our lives….I have indeed FINALLY learned how to just be happy in life and where I am “in spite of”……..
image

On a lighter note…… being a lady is such a chore some days.. It reminds ne of a good workout!! Lol, No pain, No gain!! Check out my shoe action.. cute shoes but after 4 hours, it was surely time to find some tennis shoes, flip flops or slippers!

I am just thinking of what friendship means to me…..in MY CURRENT RANDOM MOMENT OF THINKING…… LOL Your friend can also be your sister and that is just as good right…..
image

This weekend, I had so much fun hanging with my girlfriends BUT HAD A BLAST WITH MY SISTER. I attended one of my girl pal’s wedding and it was beautiful….. she looked beautiful and it made me realize how much I too, want to be married again.
image

image

Being around friends and family is something that I can’t take for granted because my FAMILY goes up and down soo much! Attending weddings – well CHRISTIAN weddings allows me to feel the peace and love of God…it also reminds me of His promises …..there are more people getting divorced than getting married and it is sad…
image
image

Im praying my girl pal and her husband has at least 100 years of Godly wedded bliss!!! A great deal of people just do NOT take their vows seriously, let alone fear God like “they should” being honest….. Nonetheless, God is good and I love the Lord and ” I wont take it back”…… ( a slogan in the black church )

My post is random I know.. that’s because my mind is all over the place…mentally and emotionally. But I’m really in an awesome place in MY LIFE.
