The truth is….

The truth is that nobody really knows what the heck the truth is. We listen to one story and then we figure it sounds pretty good, so it must be the truth. Then someone else comes along and has to screw things up by saying some things that made more sense than what the other person just said. I mean “Really!” I do not need more confusion in my life right now. I just want to get up in the morning, get my coffee, look at my schedule for the day, and move ahead. I am sure I will be watching the clock all day long just waiting for that moment when I can just go home, take a deep breath, and go put my “fat clothes” on! No more sticking in my stomach. No more smiling pretty. No more wondering how my hair looks. You know, just hanging out! I did I mention that5 exciting moment when us girls get to finally take off that annoying bra! Wow, the best! You girls out there understand! So, I guess what I am trying to say is that we just have to take the day for what it is and figure out from many directions presented to us, which way to go with our actions. I guess today is my day to just ramble on. Oh well, thanks for listening. Have a great weekend!

The passing of precious TIME….

It isn’t possible,

It isn’t so,

Where did all of my precious time go?

I have had many sorrows,

I have also had many joys.

I imagine that this will be the answer for you as well.

So, many visits from family,

Many times spent with friends

Many hours reflecting on the memories of those lost to the other world

Many silent moments sitting in quiet and smiling.

I am blessed

I am strong

I will continue this journey

I will accept all that I am given

I will continue to be me, Luisa Doraz!

May you all be at peace. Thanks for stopping in. Much appreciated.

A First for ME

Well, you have to believe me when I say that is actually me out there you see in the water. What am I doing? Well, my second son bought a KAYAK, with all of the gear. He insisted that I try it out! I could not leave until I did! I have to admit, I was a bit on the hesitant side. I would have rather had on my bathing suit instead of my new clothes I just got! I could see that my son REALLY wanted to see what would happen, so I did it! I am now hooked. I adjusted quickly to the balance issue. I got accustomed to getting wet! I sat in a puddle of water the whole time, put my pants finally dried! Once I got into the groove of kayaking, I did not want to stop! So, I guess I did learn that YOU CAN teach an old dog new tricks! lol Have fun!

A Day in Ventura at the beach……..

<

Like my new shades? Looking good or should I trade them in? lol I had a relaxing day at the beach in Ventura. I walked up and down Main Street. Lots of shops ranging from thrift stores, antiques, and crazy gadgets. There sure were a lot of surfers out! I love watching them hit the waves. I got to eat at a delicious Irish Pub. The atmosphere was very friendly and inviting.I also took a look at the Ventura Mission. There you can find some samples of the way of life back in the day. I loved it!I have a feeling I will be spending a lot of time in Ventura this summer. I also love going to their RV parks. I guess I had better get in shape! I have starting walking every day now for a minimum of 20-30 minutes. I also do some yoga and light weights. I do not belong to a gym. I find it more relaxing to do it in the comfort of my home. Hope you are all planning on having a nice week. I need you all to send some prayers out to my mom. She is having a heart angiogram on Tuesday. Thank you for your support.

Pace…Peace…

I feel it is time..once again…to return to my place of peace. I need to find the time to concentrate on my personal growth, both mentally and spiritually.I will only keep positive thoughts of you all in my quest. I wish you all the abliity to make peace within your souls and find the true path of happiness in this life.

I have decided to focus on individuals who will bring positive energy to this world. I will focus on strength. Beliefs. Values. Ethics. Commitment. Dignity. Self-Respect. Truthfulness. Unity. World peace.

I am not pleased with politics. I am more of a business woman. I believe in getting things done. I believe in being consistent and empathetic.I believe you should be made proud of what you accomplish. I believe we should all believe we can accomplish. My parents came to America from Italy. They were proud to become citizens and start contributing to this great nation. They raised us to believe we could do anything with hard work and truth. They did not ask for any help, they did it with the support of family and friends. They taught us to be proud of what we do and what we have.

I am sure I will be back. Until then, stay happy and healthy. I am sure I will be by to check on you all. Have fun blogging.

Hello Friends. Hope You’re Feeling Good!….cute image*

 

An elderly couple were killed in an accident and found themselves being given a tour of heaven by Saint Peter. “Here is your oceanside condo, over there are the tennis courts, swimming pool, and two golf courses. If you need any refreshments, just stop by any of the many bars located throughout the area.””Heck, Gloria,” the old man hissed when Saint Peter walked off, “we could have been here ten years ago if you hadn’t heard about all that stupid oat bran, wheat germ, and low-fat diets!”

*****

A family of three tomatoes were walking downtown one day when the little baby tomato started lagging behind. The big father tomato walks back to the baby tomato, stomps on her, squashing her into a red paste, and says, “Ketchup!”

*****

A friend and I were standing in line at a fast-food restaurant, waiting to place our order.

There was a big sign posted. “No bills larger than $20 will be accepted.”

The woman in front of us, pointing to the sign, remarked, “Believe me, if I HAD a bill larger than $20, I wouldn’t be eating here.”

Have fun~

Birthday Fun……

Yes, that is me. My friends Fran and Jennifer surprised me with this outfit. Too cool. I kept it on at the restaurant and had no problem showing it off to the others. lol I had such a great time.We spent the whole time laughing and sharing stories. We had such delicious meals. Afterwards, we went shopping! Yes, we bought shoes! lol I just love my friends. I love the greatest gift of all…the gift of time. So precious. So wonderful. Hope you all have a great time this weekend. My hubby and I are going on a quick trip. Stay well and happy.

Fly me away …….

I do not want to do that anymore
I need a break for a bit
Can you please just get out of my way
so I can fly on my magic carpet?

Where would I go you ask?
What would I do?
Whatever I want to do, I say
and wherever I want to go!

No, do not say it is not possible
Do not start with that negative tone
I think I will get going now
Just, please just leave me alone!

Off I go
My first stop Africa
My next will start with a B!

I shall be gone for awhile

as you can see!
Do not miss me, OK?
I will think of you with a smile
I will think of you everyday

Bye

for Charlie……..

The right kind of fear can be a pathway to peace……..

My immediate thought is death…

So final…

So tragic…

So inspiring?

I am referring to one’s faith…

In the heaven’s above…

In life after death…

Such a superior place?

Can there really be a future after death?

Can all of us be reunited?

Can all of our pain and suffering disappear?

I do feel inner peace with those possibilities.

Who are we to say they do not exist?

Memories in the sun*

How did I ever miss it?

How could it be ignored?

Loud and inviting at the same time.

Offering many silly or quiet moments.

Take a look.

Embrace the madness.

Sometimes angry and making a point.

Other times timid and wanting your challenges.

The beach is all around you, if you live near by.

Do you take it for granted each day you drive by it?

Do you just assume that it will always be there for you?

Why not take some time to introduce yourself.

You will be amazed at all the smiles.

You will welcome the waves.

You will feel the coldness of the ocean on you.

What fun.

What a miracle.

It all awaits you.

Why do you hesitate?
