FAMILY TIMES

It’s great to have family!

They’re amusing as Hell!

When we all get together,

all we do is YELL, YELL, YELL!

I am especially amused,

When the grandparents say,

” One day I’ll be dead and you’ll

be sorry you acted this way!”

Then the parents chime in

and say, “Shut up, that’s not nice!.”

I am ready to say something,

but I just ” stop ” and think twice!

Why bother, I figure

It all sounds the same,

I guess we have anxiety

and stress to blame!

But when the pleasant event is

all said and done,

We give each other hugs good-bye,

and say “THIS WAS FUN!”

You figure it out!

(A poem I wrote a while back that I thought would be great for the holidays.)

Down to the wire…..

No, I am not stressed out. I am calm. I just have a lot of little errands to run before my friend gets married on June 8th. I am really excited for her. She is also getting little things done each day. All of this running around has made me realize a few things. Life is what you make it. You can make your daily chores seem terrible, or you can dance when you are doing them! I am sure the people around you do not care. You might even get them to smile! I have a tendency to dance in public. I seem to do a lot better when I hear the music instead of the ugliness that is going on around me. Call it denial if you want. I call it mental health management. Do you have a way to make yourself get calm about your daily chores? I would be real interested in hearing about them. Until the wedding, I will be blogging off and on. I hope you are all well and happy. I hope you are enjoying your free time and getting to do some of those things you have always wanted to do, but do not seem to have the time to do them. (I wanted to see how long I could make that last sentence! LOL)

“Life is Short”…..

“They say it takes a minute

to find a special person.

An hour to appreciate them.

A day to love them,

but then an entire life

to forget them.”

This statement I found got me thinking about my friends and family. We really do not know what the next day holds, so we should appreciate all that we have everyday. Getting upset over something that isn’t worth having a heart attack over is something we should learn to control. We should see each day as a challenge that will have positibe results. We should embrace life and enjoy every moment of it. I agree, life is short. That is why I try to do what I can when I can and not dwell on what I haven’t done yet . It gets you nowhere!
