Happy Birthday to ME

We had the opportunity to travel to Moab, Utah and visit Arches National Park. It was amazing! We got to do some hiking and lots of sight seeing. I would highly recommend a visit! We also got to visit Canyonland National Park. So awesome!

Now I am continuing with my birthday celebration! My family and friends are amazing! So loving and so supportive! I hope you are not to crazy over my photos I like to post! Oh well, have a great time doing what you like to do! I sure am.๐Ÿ™‚

A letter to myself. Sound familiar?

Hey girl,

It seems like you need a few words of wisdom sent your way. You have been a bit on the sluggish side lately. What gives? You seem to be right on target with stuff. You manage to get your work done. You manage to do what you have to do for other people, and they are fine. So, what is it that makes you smile a little less these days? You are always smiling! Did you forget to change all of the negative stuff into positive energy? Did you forget to meditate and do your yoga? Have you been eating a bunch of sugar? Well, it is your birthday! Once a year should be fine, right? So, whatever is getting you to be in such a mood, take hold of it and WAKE UP! Life is for living! Life is for doing! Life is what you want it to be! So, SMILE! Laugh! You are blessed! You have your family and your friends! Like you always say, “BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!”

Make it a great day!

What the HE** just happened?

I guess this is a message to who ever is out there listening and reading about what is going on these days in this world of ours. It seems like we, the general public, are always allowing some of our strings to be moved if we consider we are just some kind of puppet in this society of ours. We seem to fall into the trap of just surrendering and just agreeing with what ever every one else is saying. Well, that bothers me. I was raised by 2 Italian parents who immigrated here, became citizens, and kept their Italian culture alive in their home and also kept the rules of the USA in their heads, and ours! My dad was always telling us to be proud to be AMERICANS, but do not forget where your parents were born. I listened. I went to college, working 2 jobs and paying for it MYSELF. I got a BA degree and then immediately starting working 2 jobs. I eventually got married and had 2 children. They both went to college and are also working 2 jobs. So, I feel very blessed. Our hard work and our prayers do count. You just have to keep focused on YOUR goals, not the other guys! YOU COUNT!

If you do not recognize what is going on, what can I say?
If you do not see the wrong that is shining, what can I do?

If you continue to live in your own little world, what of others?

If you fail to see the BIG agenda, what can be done?

Listen and learn ON YOUR OWN.

Do not always fall prey to the gossip.

Do not alwats surrender in weakness.

Hold strong to the facts.

You have an opinion that counts.

There comes a point and time in our lives where we are not really sure exactly what the hell we believe in. I hope that you have all found a place in your life where you can say you have achieved some type of peace with things. We all need to find that balance in our lives where we can actually not get annoyed when we look at ourselves in the mirror. I can honestly say that I have reached that blessing in my life. I have fought hard and strong. I have stayed focused. I have stayed true. I have not injured anyone along the way. I can say that I am at peace and can accept any challenge., Can you?

Yeah, I know
Some days you figure “Why bother?”
Some days you figure, “It’s not too bad, it could be worse.”
Some days you wonder why things are the way they are.
What ever happened to living the sweet life?
You see all kinds of things going on and you wonder, “What the hell!”
Are they so stupid?
Don’t they realize what they are doing?
No matter what I do and what I say, they just DO NOT get it!
How do they live?
How do they survive?
Why should I even give a *hit?

Ok, are you done asking questions now?
Are you ready for the magic answers?
Do you honestly think that this blog I have will solve all of your problems?

Well, I hope it will direct in a positive way.
Get rid of all the negative, for a while anyways!
Look at the bottom line.
You Are Alive!

Make it happen.
Stay focused on what you are looking to do.
Stay positive.
Have faith!

May your days be full of many smiles.
May your hearts be blessed with much love.
May all of your dreams become a reality.
May you all enjoy the many blessings of this world.
Keep Smiling.

Demented Mom

If you think that you will understand me one day soon, you will not.
If you think that you will find a magic pill that will cure me, you will not.
If you think that I am happy doing and saying what I am, I am not.
If you think I can understand your look of confusion now, I do not.
If you can just leave me alone to be in my own little newย  world, I will be fine.
You are not welcomed.
You are not needed.
You are only there some of the time.
Most days, I just go along my merry way.
If I want to shout, I will.
If I want to try to get out of bed, I will.
If I want to spit out my food, I will.
If I do not want to take my medicine, it is my problem, not yours.
You can only do so much for those like me.
My body has already been invaded by the aliens that hate good mental health.
You can help by joining in the battle to fight this beast called dementia.
That would make me smile.

No matter what, just remember that I will always love you.

Thank you.

Your mother*
