– Are Parents Aware?


image

My son is about 7 or 8 years old in this photo above and I could just remember his personality even back then…. He was very strong willed / minded for his age and it was a beautiful season to watch him be 7 or 8 years old “on paper” …..but Naturally and Spiritually he was SOOO MUCH OLDER!! Or should I say wiser….

Even down to video games – if it is not a sports game like baseball, soccer – forget about it – parents who allow their kids to play things like Call of Duty do not understand what they are getting themselves into!!

– but just imagine that if I did not steer him in the right direction of what is right and wrong – who knows how he would have turn out –

Video games that are displaying killing, cussing, vulgar and explicit acts puts your children’s mind – body – soul and SPIRIT at risk……

The behaviors of kids today are so out of control and it isn’t just the videos games, but the things that they are viewing, the music they listening to etc… the disrespectful behavior to authority is just simply mind boggling.

However, as a parent… you must first even believe in the things that I am speaking of to even understand the point of this post…..

Try Jesus Christ….. let Him come into your heart and speak to you in regards to raising / rearing your children.

Without Christ… THERE IS NO WAY that my son would be the young Christian man that he currently is……for that I certainly am grateful everyday-

Why I Didnt Buy My Son ANOTHER Skateboard!


This is not my son BUT listen, he is able to try anything that looks fun and if he happens to be staying at an overnight… I am scared to death that he would try to do something like this with friends –
Kids…especially boys are dare devils most of the time and when he started LOVING skateboards little bit “too much” for my taste – I surely put an end to his skater days! LOL

Politics

MY Sports Headache –


Okay I was just watching the news and I thought that my EARS were clogged because I heard on my television set that, a professional hockey player signed a contract TODAY in the amount of 76 MILLION DOLLARS to “””””” play””””””” a SPORT and if he promises to play for the Pittsburgh Penguins for 8 years he SHALL get 76 MILLION DOLLARS!!!!

Hate to say this but I see HOW AND WHY these women turn themselves into groupies “hoping to be” a girlfriend and eventually their wives – but hey making 10 million dollars A YEAR, I see why there are soooo many paternity cases within the professional sports industry! Geesh! The politics behind sports indeed involves, cash, sex, lies, talent, fans and business owners! Great Potlock!

Interesting Words From Andy Rooney!


 Remember Andy Rooney from the CBS Sunday Evening Show called 60 Minutes? Well here is an interesting set of views from him – ( LOL )

 

Andy Rooney’s thoughts on women over forty:As I grow in age, I value women who are over forty most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over forty will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, “What are you thinking?…” She doesn’t care what you think.

If a woman over forty doesn’t want to watch the game, she doesn’t sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And, it’s usually something more interesting.

A woman over forty knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants and from whom. Few women past the age of forty give a hoot what you might think about her or what she’s doing.

Women over forty are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won’t hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it’s like to be unappreciated.

A woman over forty has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn’t trust the guy with other women. Women over forty couldn’t care less if you’re attracted to her friends because she knows her friends won’t betray her.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over forty. They always know.

A woman over forty looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over forty is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They’ll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one! You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over forty for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman of forty-plus, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some twenty-two-year-old waitress.

Ladies, I apologize.

For all those men who say, “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free,” here’s an update for you. Now 80 percent of women are against marriage, why? Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire pig, just to get a little sausage.

Random Thought on Heros


image

A hero to me is not just a person who died for there country or went inside a  burning building or stuff like that.
A hero to me is a single mother who  survives everyday by herself.
A teenager against all odds getting through  life.
An alcoholic walking into a rehab center.
A father being not just  a father but a friend, a caregiver, supporter, a brick wall for his kids.
A  friend who no matter what or how wrong you are standing up for you and taking  your side. A hero who no matter how hard they are being hit or pushed or beat  down,
no matter how bad they are emotionally or physically or  psychologically they stand up and keep going.
They push through the pain of  life, love, kids, work, school, drugs, sports, parents, heartbreak, alcohol
A person who isn’t just there, but is there living,  breathing, and surviving…  TO ME that to me is a hero.

No Black Eyes Today!


image

Umm…we are smiling but trust me – ask us if we are super sleepy….. Our sons are both in 9 MILLION activities….

She is soo amazing and I love that I have friends with various backgrounds / cultures / nationalities etc.. It makes me better and broadens my horizons with my son too. My son being exposed to things that are “un -American” is a plus…. Everyday, I am finding ways for us BOTH to live outside of the box as well as INVENT our own boxes!
image

I smile because of him….Even when im having a bad day, He makes me smile and i am soo proud to call him my son! My (love muffin) oops… I meant to say that MY son had two basketball games today – I guess they are called double headers…oh no wait – that is in BASEBALL right?

image

LOL Well anyway, he did soooooooooooooooo well it was SICK! He made a few 3 pointers, looked over at me then got a tad bit cocky!

image

You saw his photo that I uploaded yesterday looking like he had been punched in the face….. well each time that he made a lay up, scored a few points and started running……I realized that The only thing that I said to him was great job baby and watch your face! LOL

Networking With Positivity –


image

You’ll attract what you depict about yourself. So if you want to be with / or around a certain type of person then you have to display it in all facades, mentally, physically and spiritually.
image

I remind my son daily that although it is important to have a variety of friends. Having manners, saying please and thank you, knowing how to interact with common sense is very basic but indeed VERY vital.

However, if he plays the drums, the tenor saxophone, plays baseball, plays soccer, plays basketball and reads books on a weekly basis – It would NOT be such a great idea if he started hanging around friends who did NOTHING that he participated in. It is like being unequally matched up even as friends.
image

No your friends should not do everything the same, but it would make sense to spend your time with individuals who are like minded.

I am not speaking of ONLY personal male female relationships…. I am talking in reference to ANY type of places in life that you desire to catapult to.

Winners notice winners and mock what they did or are doing so that they too, can not only become a winner as well but maintain being a winner.

The image you portray yields the person you’ll draw to you so don’t get mad at what’s coming to you…check the mirror and see what you’re displaying!
