One of my high school friends recently posted on Facebook, when I read it, I could not stop but to think that my friend Bev is correct. Our previous generation had a way of keeping faith during hard times from certain life events that can get the better of us at times.
We could say, it as a different time, things were different then, Faith along with courage I do not believe is lost due to different times nor generation time frames, but rather an individuals outlook on life and inner strength. Perhaps, this is why Danny from https://dreambigdreamoften.co/ will often post or re-blog posts that have an inspirational and motivation value. I can not leave out Jessica Edouard from https://upliftingquotesdaily.com/ who brings us sunshine from time to time.
Let’s take the sun and leave
the rain for other minds.
Let the light go straight
to the center of our brains.
Linger on the green grass
of a happier life. Home free,
but not homeless.
Let’s live in the world
inside of us where nothing can be lost.
Someplace where it’s always autumn and
there are plenty of leaves to break our fall.
Just you and me where’s there’s no them or they.
Showing the hollowed out existence,
the slamming screen door.
No longer waiting on the light
to save us but shining our
own brilliance. Knowing
if the light ever finds us,
we’ll light its way.
This past week my mind has been all of over the place. Here are a few of my random thoughts:
Bentley has an ingrown dew claw on his back foot. I am a little perturbed at our groomer as they are supposed to take care of trimming all of his nails. Now we have to take him to the vet to have a procedure done to fix the problem.
Today is Memorial Day and my mind is focused on all the soldiers who have died for our country. I have been on a WWII kick lately so the visions of war are fresh in my mind.
This past weekend Dream Big surpassed 10,000 followers. Each new milestone is so humbling and I am grateful for everyone who visits, reads, comments, likes and follows my page. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
I feel like I need to apologize for not being around lately,
When Life events happens it sometimes creates a domino effect.
Deb and I had two cars that we set to look at and had an appointment with a local Mechanic Shop to look at one. For one of the vehicles, we set in the Ace parking lot for over twenty minutes and no show, then Deb texts the person and the reply was, I am sorry, the car sold yesterday.
OK, so we still had the appointment with the other car to be looked at by the Mechanics for Monday at 4:30 PM. We get home from the no show person, and a half hour later we gt a text from the other person informing us that he sold the car despite we had already had the appointment with the Mechanic to look at said car.
Deb does not curse, but yesterday was the day for it with emotional tears, I even was cursing like a sailor after both those eggs went down the tubes while I am fighting this head cold from hell.
So, back to Craigslist and adds, we find one and left a message, we get a call to inform us they sold within the last half-hour. We find another one and texted the person to inquire if they still had the car. Deb got the reply an hour later of Yes. Deb then asked if we could see the car and no reply until today just about an hour and a half ago.
We still do not have a time set to see the said car for today before the storm comes in later this evening. The last storm brought us 13 inches and over 196 accidents in total. This storm is to be about the same from their preliminary predictions, but with some possible ice as well for both Monday and Tuesday.
While Deb is at Walmart stocking up on provisions because we won’t be able to drive that RWD car at all during Monday or Tuesday.
So about an hour ago, I got a call from my Ex-sister-in-law that lives with my Nephew Keith or the other way around, living arrangments does not matter, the call was filled with cries of worry and desperation. Both Keith and Dee work yet her truck is no longer running, and their other vehicle is being repossessed and no funds to pay the rent that is due on the 4th of December because her paycheck is being attached due to medical bills that her insurance did not cover in the amount of four or five hundred a month if I heard it correctly. Dee called my Brother her Ex and he replied, I’ll talk to you on Monday when I have more time. She called her Mother and Sister and found no comfort there either. But then, what does one expect when one’s Mother is a user as well as a sister.
I believe I am in need of a major vacation from all Drama, the nitwits of our society that say one thing as a virtual handshake and then turn around and do another, the ones that actually use a spray hose to wash a car out, now that was a moron period. That was not even Dumb and Dumber funny.
To all those that live in the Midwest I hope all of you are safe and sound if you do try to travel Please be safe for this storm will have ice in it. For those that will be without electricity, I hope you have backup generators on the ready just in case to keep you and the kiddies warm.
