A day of memories

Today is a day to honor the memory of loved ones who have passed away. Gathering with others to share stories as we enjoy our grill out. It encourages us all to spend as much time with those you love while you are both alive.

It leaves you breathless keeping up with the changes.

By the time you figure it out it won't matter anymore. Technology changes rapidly and before you know it the things you got comfortable doing become obsolete. Your old equipment may work for a while but when it breaks you can't get it fixed or replaced. There are millions who get excited to try out the new technology. But there also many who dread the changes. Whether you look forward to the changes or not, we have all become dependent on technology as much as we are to breathing oxygen. Which explains why being frustrated with the changes can momentarily take your breath away.

Have you seen the bird without wings?

Every now and again you will hear something that you can't get out of your mind. Like a song you can't get out of your head. Where I live squirrels live freely in our yards. You get use to them chasing each other constantly running from tree to tree. Then I heard someone refer to them as Tree Rats. They said unlike the rats that go inside your home they are free to roam in anyone's yard they choose. I don't see them as tree rats but more like a bird without wings.

Vegetables taste better than ever.

When you were young your parents would cook a healthy dinner then make you eat it. When you get older you cook the same kinds of foods for dinner. But why would you cook even the ones you disliked? Did your taste buds change with age? Is it simply because you already know how to cook them? Or is it because you learned the value of Healthy eating? Today my son made me toast with Apple Butter on it just like my parents use to because he knew when I felt sick it always made me feel better.

If you don't say anything nothing will change!

You always have a voice. You always have a choice whether to say anything. Choosing not to say anything is still a choice you make. Your words could have inspired someone but they won't unless you say it to them. Ignoring bad behavior makes it acceptable therefore it becomes common. Speak up or forever no one will have peace.

As soon as you accept it

There are many things that will drastically change during your lifetime. No matter if you like it or not you have to adapt to the changes. Sure you can be frustrated or even angry about it but it won't get you anywhere. The sooner you accept it the sooner you will get over it so you can move on. Accepting it doesn't mean you like the change. It means you realize that whether you like it or not you have the wisdom to know you have to accept the things you can not change.

Enjoy it when you can

Every few years brings changes in what matters to you. Your favorite foods change. Your favorite song changes. Your point of view and your interest change. The physical changes are not so noticeable when you are young. As you get older everything you do changes based on your physical changes. Each stage of your Life is a once in a Lifetime adventure that can only be enjoyed if you enjoy it when you can. You only have one Life to live so enjoy it while you are living it.

Get the facts

You react on what you know. And what you don't know makes all the difference on how you should react. That is why you need to get the facts before you react. Its like hearing take a right without knowing about all the other turns you have to make to get somewhere. You sure won't end up where you are supposed to be. In order to get where you are meant to be or to know how to react to things you need to get all the facts.

Before you say it out loud

You may forget but they won't. Your words are more powerful than you think. Your words of encouragement can keep them moving when they seem to be going one step forward and falling two steps back. Your words of wisdom can guide them as they go through Life. Your words of love can comfort them on their journeys. Your harsh words can weigh heavy on their mind preventing them from going in the right direction. So before you say it out loud remember what your mom said, If you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all.

It will blow by

The wind was blowing so hard it looked as if it would blow the trees down. I watched in amazement as the taller trees were being tossed from side to side. The shorter trees at the same time were only gently swaying. When the wind stopped the trees stood as if nothing had happened. It reminded me that as you go through Life you have to whether the challenges you must face from time to time. Some blow by quickly as a breeze. At times it blows in with such a force that it almost knocks you to the ground. But just like the trees when you have whethered what blows in you will remain standing loud and proud.

They don't want anyone to know

My grandkids are getting older now and they pay attention to everything. I have always said when something funny happens that I will have to blog about it. Now they ask me to read out loud the ones about them. The oldest one can read now he likes to read them himself. So the other day when they were misbehaving I threatened to write about them and they all immediately stopped misbehaving and just stared at me. It worked. They didn't know who would read the blog but they didn't want me to write about them misbehaving. It sure felt better to me to threaten to write about them instead of threatening them that I would put them in time out. I then thought all parents and grandparents should start a blog because writing about their achievements let them know how proud you are of them. And threatening to write about them when they misbehave makes them straighten up and behave. Hahaha.

It was meant to be but will it?

In Life you don't get to choose the cards you are dealt. You do however get to choose how you will react to whatever you are dealt. If you want a positive outcome you will have to look for a positive point of view about it. Everything happens for a reason but if your reaction is negative then it will prevent what was supposed to happen. Life is hard enough without you making it harder than it was supposed to be. Be patient. It takes time for the reason to be clear. It doesn't happen in an instant. But in an instant your reaction will determine if what was meant to be will be. The best things in Life can't happen if you don't let them happen.
