A Wonderful Mother
You Are What You Repeatedly Do
First you make your habits,
& then your habits make you.
You become a slave to your constantly repeated acts.
What at first you choose, at last compels.
Your habits are either the best of servants
or the worst of masters.
Your thoughts lead you on to a purpose,
your purposes go forth in action.
Your actions form your habits.
Your habits determine your character,
& your character fixes your destiny.
Once in motion, a pattern stays in motion.
Make it a habit to pamper yourself! :o)
God made a wonderful mother,
A mother who never grows old.
He made her smile of the sunshine,
He molded her heart of pure gold.
In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,
In her cheeks, fair roses you see.
God made that wonderful mother,
And gave that dear mother to me.

Just letting those of you who still remember me, that I am still here and think of you quite often. I always promise to be by more often, but, life gets in the way sometimes, and I can't keep my word. But, on thing is for sure, I have several true friends here and though I may be away, you are never forgotten! Love to all!!!!!!!!

OK Guys!!!! It's a record!!!! I use to be here bunches, now I hang around Myspace, but, I neglect friends there too. Rarely do I play with my 'pet' anymore. for relaxation and a 'pass-time', I sing karaoke, and have some friends there. They are too kind. They say I sound good. However, like aything else, there are the unkind one's there, that have gotten me to where I wanted to quit. But, I didn't. I know I can't sing, but I enjoy it and I have fun. Isn't that what it's about anyway?? I'm not looking for a Nashville contract!!!!! I couldn't even score a 'birthday kid party' contract with a clown suit on. Come on people, lighten up already!!!!!
Anyway, it really is good to be back here at home, where my blogging days began. Lots of old friends have moved on to other things and other places, I only hope they have found what they were looking for in life. Sadly, I guess, I won't ever know. But, my fondness and the memories and love for them will always be in my heart.
Today started out to be a bummer, like at 6 AM, but, things are looking up for me now. I was badly betrayed and felt saddened that I was lied to. The truth always has a way of surfacing, doesn't it? Why is it though, that it always, without fail, costs me in some way? I have to learn the NO word. That's all there is to it. For my own sanity.
I hope everyone has a joyous day and is filled with love, laughter and sunshine. Even if it's raining! Love to all.........

Great Inspiration Psalm 23
The Lord is my Shepherd ----- that's a Relationship!
I shall not want ----- that's Supply!
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures ----that's Rest!
He leadeth me beside the still waters -----that's Refreshment!
He restoreth my soul ----- that's Healing!
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness --that's Guidance!
For His name sake ----- that's Purpose!
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death--that's
I will fear no evil ----- that's Protection!
For Thou art with me ----- that's Faithfulness!
Thy rod and Thy staff comfort me -----that's Discipline!
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine
Thou annointest my head with oil ----- that's Consecration!
My cup runneth over ----- that's Abundance!
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord -----that's Security!
Forever ----- that's Eternity!

I need to create another entry, cause folks may think I left, again!!!! Love to all, and if I haven't said it before, just before Thanksgiving, we went on our vacation to Orlando, Disney, had a wonderful time, and can't wait for the summer, cause we made vow to continue to vacation, somewhere, every year!
We have a 7 day cruise to the Bahamas, but, if George can't see land on both sides of the boat, he's not going. Maybe I can put a picture of land on both sides when he looks toward the window!!!!!!!! Love to all!!!!!!

Me and Ma are just sitting here listening to instrumentals by Floyd Cramer, Boots Randolph, Ace Cannon and The Ventures! Sure does tell my age, doesn't it?????? Of course, some I remember as a child, which brings back some bitter-sweet memories, but the tears I shed, are of joy and lasting unforgotten memories!

I just simply can't believe that it's been 4 months since I have been on here. Blew my mind when I saw the date of my last entry. I always say "I have so many wonderful friends" here, yet, I neglect to visit. I am so sorry! I will make a concerted effort to do much better, because, after all, this is my true 'blog home'!!!!! I lose sight of that sometimes. I tend to stay on Myspace, not the visiting or the blogging part. I have a virtual pet that I spend time playing with. Kinda tends to take away the stresses of the moment. Know what I mean??? Guess we all need some kind of diversion from time to time. I am just sorry it's been so long since I have been by.
I am sorry, too, that I missed my friend Mellow's visit!!!! I wonder about you all the time, and if you come back to read this, please send me your e-mail address again. A while ago my old puter crashed and I lost alot of my e-mail addresses. Love you, too, Girl, and miss you lots!!!! My e-mail is email@example.com I think you had the iol27 one, but, it is still good as well!!! Please keep in touch!!!
I haven't gone back and read my past entries, so if I repeat myself, I am sorry. I am just so excited to be back!!!! Nothing much has been happening here. Toot is in a private school this year. Took her out of public school for personal reasons. She just didn't do well there. She started off in a Christian school, and now is back in it. She is advancing very well, especially since the public school felt she should be in first grade again. CCA moved her to second, as I requested, and she is doing very well. I am so proud of her!!! She also has a new hamster, as of yesterday, her name is "Hammie"!!! Beautiful little thing. She is silver. Never seen one that color!!!
I think I mentioned us going on a vacation a while back. We decided on, and are finally planning it! We are going to Orlando Thanksgiving week, so Toot won't have to miss school or anything. We are also taking her cousin, Lillie, along so she has some company besides us old folks!!!!! That should be a blast! I can't wait!!! The kids are excited too! Disney....whoohoo!!!
Still have Ma living with me. Working out well. Some nights and days there isn't much rest, but, still, I love her and am so blessed to be able to work at home! Love it!!!
Will go now and see about catching up!!!! Love to all and HEY!!!!!!! :)

OK, Maria!!! I will try this again! I did an entry yesterday, but it is out there somewhere in 'never never land' floating somewhere! If it finally appears here, then, I shall have two!!!
Things are much better in my frame of mind 'state'!!! The problems, that weren't even really mine, worked themselves out, however, it could have been re-written for another analogy, but, I am too blessed to be stressed, and I have no worries! How 'bout that????
Angel, thanks for the short but sweet visit! I miss you so much! I think of you often and if you, Mellow, come by, as always, I miss and love you too!!! You Gals, keep in touch! Please!!!
We celebrated George's birthday Monday, with friends, family and had a great time! I got him a pair of Tulane flippers, he really liked. Another gift will come soon, but he liked those.....alot!!!! Toot made banners and streamers and other decorations for his 'party'!!! He was excited to see her hard work and deep thought processes of the decor! She is so talented!! She really is!!! My only regret is I forgot to take pictures of her work, didn't even cross my mind until now. Maybe I will hang them back up, and though it won't be the same effect, I will have the pictures...silly me...how could I forget???
Still haven't taken that vacation. Still waiting to get the dates lined up. Want to wait till it is a little cooler, but then again, I can't wait too long, cause we don't want to freeze 'swimming with the dolphins'. Toot is absolutely going to love that!!! I can hardly wait!!!
I will go and see if I can this to work this time. Beens so long, I almost forgot how to create an entry and post it!!! The one last ngiht surely didn't apperar here! LOL Love to all........

Why are there so many un-happy people in this ole world, that has to create turmoil in someone else's life for theirs to be complete? Most of us go through life, in our own little worlds, oblivious to other's, just trying to make it one more day, until a friends path crosses, and we grab the gusto and enjoy their mark on our lives. Then, we go back to our own family routine, until the next time. We work, we play, we dance, then we sleep. Ok, everything is great, until one day, BOOM, the silliness starts. Some comment has to be made in an unkind way, about something they really know nothing about in the first place, then, a bunch of nonsense gets started, and you sit back and wonder, 'what did I do'? I am over here, 25 miles away, minding my own business, not bothering anybody, doing what I need to do, but all of this hatefulness is directed at me, by no means of my own, and it is pointless, senseless, and stupid. I just sit back, with this dumbfounded look on my face and in my heart and say "huh"? I truly hope you find some peace within yourself, and find your happy place, because I surely cannot find it for you. All I can do is leave you alone, as long as you let me, and go on, and live as I need to, with my peace, love and open heart. I pray that you and your family find the peace and contentment you so desire, even without knowing it. And, to be honest, I still love you. Through it all.
