Be kind not foolish

Sometimes we push ourselves physically and mentally to help others. If it is something that really makes a difference in their quality of Life than it is worth it. But to push yourself doing things for others that really doesn't matter at all is definitely not worth it. You have to put your own health and time in making your quality of life better. If you run yourself ragged you won't be able to help those around you if they really need you. Be kind to others but don't be foolish.

Time to decorate

The day after thanksgiving its time to decorate the Christmas tree. Although you may be tired from all the turkey as you drag out the boxes of ornaments you get excited with energy to see them. Everyone has their favorites. Most of them have memories that pop up in your mind bringing a smile to your face. It is a trip down memory lane. As the colorful lights brighten up the whole room you can't help but enjoy them.

Your Health V.S. Saving Money

It's been a busy day for many people. Thanksgiving Dinner takes two days of cooking. By then you are tired enough to sleep till noon but you can't because you got to get up early to do it all over again. I can't imagine after all that hard work there will be millions out in the middle of the night to get the bargains. I would rather relax because I earned it and I am too tired to get up for it. But I am worth the money it will cost me that I could have saved because wearing your your body too far could cost you your Health.Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Enjoy those you love and be thankful you are alive to enjoy it.

Every day you have

It is easy to lose track of the time or even days when you got too much on your mind. With all the planning of the holiday and the kids out of school I lost another Monday. And as old as I am time is flying by fast enough without losing days. Every day becomes precious the older you get. But Monday wasn't totally lost I had a great day with the grandkids and enjoying every day you can with those you love is a good day.

How many times can you forget?

I have been to the store three times to do the Thanksgiving Dinner shopping yet there are still things I need. The first time I forgot my list. The second time I forgot to pull it out of my pocket while I was at the store. Now as I was making my list of what I was preparing I realize there were things I forgot to put on the list. Does this ever happen to anyone else? I seem to be wasting a lot of time and energy just buying the supplies. Now begins the Holiday dusting. I have decided since I was dusting shelves anyways for Thanksgiving I will just put out the Christmas decorations early to save my energy later to do all the Christmas shopping. Happy Holidays early!

He turned from being my son to a daddy

As I talked to my young granddaughter about the Thanksgiving Holiday we were discussing who all would be coming. Somehow the subject came up that her Daddy was my son. She became very upset and kept saying he isn't your son he is my Daddy. I tried to explain that he was her Daddy but he was also my son. The more I tried to explain it the more upset she got. She would tell me over and over again eventually almost crying that he was her Daddy. Finally I gave up and just agreed he was only her Daddy. Apparently if she agreed with me she thought he couldn't be her Daddy anymore. Her fear of losing her Daddy far outweighed trying to make her understand that he was a Daddy and a son.

Time to dust off the recipes

As Thanksgiving approaches it's time to bring out the Family Recipes. Strange how certain foods you only make at the Holidays even though they are some of everyone's favorite foods. But that is what makes Holiday Dinners something everyone can't wait to eat. Now that my children are grown and have families of their own, I even make extra pans of their favorites to take home. The family doesn't gather often to spend the day together which makes Holidays special. The Christmas season starts early the next morning as the bargain shopping begins at some places at 4:00 am.

Everyone is not a mind reader

They don't know if you don't tell them. You may assume that those around you know what you need but they don't. If they would have known I am sure they would have helped. If you would let those around you know then you can work together to make sure it works out for you. If you don't ask then don't get mad when they don't help because they assumed you had it all worked out and didn't need their help. Everyone is not a mind reader even though they are close to you. When they understand they will lend a hand.

Show your appreciation to our veterans each day because everyday is another day they have given you freedom.

You can postpone it till you miss it

There is always the chance that if you keep postponing what you need to do you will miss getting it done on time. For example I kept attempting to write my blog yesterday but I would get distracted and kept saying I will get it later. After three postponements I ended up going to bed forgetting that I never got it done. I had three chances to get my monday blog done but here it is Tuesday. If it is something that you need done don't postpone it just do it so it can be done on time.

Appreciate what you have

You may not have everything you want but if you have what you need you should be thankful for that. When times are tough it is tough to stay positive. But the mere fact that you are alive to deal with them is a reason to smile. Look for reasons to smile and you will find them. Look only at the things that are negative will only make life harder. Your point of view will determine your reality.

Wrinkles are forever

Like the saying goes if you don't have anything nice to say it is best to say nothing at all. When you are angry your words come out spewing anger on anyone within earshot. Even if you don't utter a word your face shows it. And your mom was right when she said don't make ugly faces before it sticks on you forever. And those deep wrinkles you make when you are mad don't go away. The next time you get angry look in the mirror and you will know why you need to flush.

In order for there to be World Peace people need to have "Peace of Mind". In todays society that is hard. But it is possible. Peace of Mind is just a Flush away. It starts by learning how to first take the painful experiences from your past and Just Flush them out of your mind. Then learn how to flush away negative things as they come. There will always be things that you experience that will happen but as long as you flush them as they come you will have room to have peace of mind. World peace starts with one person at a time one flush at a time.
