Be Proud of who YOU are*

If this life we are faced with many challenges. Some of them we ignore. Some of them we can not. We do our best to maintain our dignity and self respect when we deal with the issues we are facing. We make a choice. We move ahead. We wait and see what happens. Sometimes we are criticized.
Sometimes we are applauded. Before you make a choice, really stop and think what will happen to others when you do. Think of others and not just yourself. When you do so, YOU will succeed. Always be PROUD of your decisions. Stand tall. Keep your SELF RESPECT and DIGNITY first. ALWAYS!

Believe in Yourself;

Color your world with sunshine*

May you always believe. May you never give up hope. May you cherish your moments on this Earth every day. May you never look back and be sad. Live each day by coloring your world with sunshine. No matter what the weather. No matter what the challenge. I believe if you keep a positive approach to life, it will go on. Accept each challenge with a smile. Accept life with a sense of peace. You really have no choice when it comes down to it, right? Just live and do the best you can.

The Sack Lunches….a story

I put my carry-on in the luggage compartment and sat down in my assigned
seat. It was going to be a long flight. ‘I’m glad I have a good book to
read and perhaps I will get a short nap,’ I thought.

Just before take-off, a line of soldiers came down the aisle and filled all
the vacant seats, totally surrounding me. I decided to start a
conversation. ‘Where are you headed?’ I asked the soldier seated nearest to
me.

‘Petawawa. We’ll be there for two weeks for special training, and then we’re
being deployed to Afghanistan.’

After flying for about an hour, an announcement was made that sack lunches
were available for five dollars. It would be several hours before we
reached the east, and I quickly decided a lunch would help pass the time.

As I reached for my wallet, I overheard soldier ask his buddy if he planned
to buy lunch. ‘No, that seems like a lot of money for just a sack lunch.
Probably wouldn’t be worth five bucks. I’ll wait till we get to base ‘

His friend agreed.

I looked around at the other soldiers. None were buying lunch. I walked to
the back of the plane and handed the flight attendant a fifty dollar bill.
‘Take a lunch to all those soldiers.’ She grabbed my arms and squeezed
tightly. Her eyes wet with tears, she thanked me. ‘My son was a soldier in
Iraq ; it’s almost like you are doing it for him.’

Picking up ten sacks, she headed up the aisle to where the soldiers were
seated. She stopped at my seat and asked, ‘Which do you like best – beef or
chicken?’

‘Chicken,’ I replied, wondering why she asked. She turned and went to the
front of plane, returning a minute later with a dinner plate from first
class. ‘This is yours with thanks.’

After we finished eating, I went again to the back of the plane, heading for
the rest room. A man stopped me. ‘I saw what you did. I want to be part
of it. Here, take this.’ He handed me twenty-five dollars.

Soon after I returned to my seat, I saw the Aircraft Pilot coming down the
aisle, looking at the aisle numbers as he walked, I hoped he was not looking
for me, but noticed he was looking at the numbers only on my side of the
plane. When he got to my row he stopped, smiled, held out his hand, an
said, ‘I want to shake your hand.’

Quickly unfastening my seatbelt I stood and took the Captain’s hand. With a
booming voice he said, ‘I was a soldier and I was a military pilot. Once,
someone bought me a lunch. It was an act of kindness I never forgot.’ I
was embarrassed when applause was heard from all of the passengers.

Later I walked to the front of the plane so I could stretch my legs. A man
who was seated about six rows in front of me reached out his hand, wanting
to shake mine. He left another twenty-five dollars in my palm.

When we landed I gathered my belongings and started to deplane. Waiting
just inside the airplane door was a man who stopped me, put something in my
shirt pocket, turned, and walked away without saying a word. Another
twenty-five dollars!

Upon entering the terminal, I saw the soldiers gathering for their trip to
the base. I walked over to them and handed them seventy-five dollars. ‘It
will take you some time to reach the base. It will be about time for a
sandwich. God Bless You.’

Ten young men left that flight feeling the love and respect of their fellow
travelers. As I walked briskly to my car, I whispered a prayer for their
safe return. These soldiers were giving their all for our country. I could
only give them a couple of meals. It seemed so little.

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made
payable to his country for an amount of ‘up to and including my life.’

That is Honor, and there are way too many people who no longer understand it.

No Question is a Dumb Question, am I Right?…..*)*

I can just feel a bunch of you out there are just screaming at this question, right? Oh, was that a dumb question? No, I guess not since that is what this post is going to be about. It is on topic, right?
I guess if a question is on the topic that is being discussed, it is appropriate. Then that means, if the question is “way out there” and makes NO sense to ask…at that time….Is it a dumb question? Well, I would have to say YES! Let me explain, OK? If you are talking about the price of groceries and how you noticed that items are going up, and a friend you are with looks right at you and asks, “So, what is that guy doing over there?”…am I suppose to stop what I am discussing with someone and LOOK? Now, what did her question have to do with the price of food? Was she having “a moment” where she was just out in la la land???? I mean. wasn’t that a dumb question to ask, at that time? So, I do believe that no question is a dumb question….you are dumb if you do not ask it….BUT, I do believe it needs to be AT THE RIGHT TIME, and should “Go With The Flow” of a conversation. Oh well, just my opinion!

Geez, Do I Wanna Be Invisible……….! *)*

“The nice part about living in a small town is that when you don’t know what you are doing, someone else does.”

Well, I do not live in that small of a town, but CLOSE ENOUGH! I wish some days I could just say a command, and POOF…I am invisible! You know, those days when you just DO NOT want to see some one you know on your trip to the post office, but THERE THEY ARE! You see them standing in line, and you ask yourself, “Should I go, or stay?…TOO LATE..I’ve been spotted!!!!! Great! Then you have to become that “fake” person and SMILE when you would rather spit! Stop laughing at me! So, in those situations, I guess you do the best you can ,since you decided to live where you are living ,and handle what goes with it….. right? I guess! Oh, I could always move! Then it just starts all over again, with NEW people! Oh well, I know…GET A GRIP, right? It was fun to write this, I feel better now! *)* Oh, have a great weekend!
