all cats are not created equal

All cats are not created equal. I had one bad experience with a cat long ago and that's all it took to turn me away from all cats. Snooty,rude, and self absorbed was the impression that I had for years. Until, my boyfriend handed  this tiny little kitten to me. It was love at first site. I named him Jacob.Jacob is as smart,kind,and as lovable as any dog. When I'm having a bad day he cuddles with me. When I'm sick he never leaves my side. So I would like to apologize to cats everywhere for prejudging all cats based on one experience.

Believe it or Not

All the sudden he looks up and there eyes meet across a crowded room. There drawn together like a magnet. Ok. It didn't exactly happen like that. But it really doesn't matter. Does it? Have you ever had a bond with someone that is so amazing? He knows your every thought and you know his. Live,laugh,love, like tomorrow is your last day. Let no more time pass before you tell that special someone how you really feel. Speak without fear. No what ifs. No hesitations. You'll never really know if you don't stand up and speak your mind,your heart,your spirit. What are you waiting for? Your in your life now. LIVE IT! Live it with grace and style. Be a duck with the neigh sayers.Let there ugly words not dictate your path,but instead let it roll off your back like water rolling off a ducks back. It's ok to be goofy,silly, and even funny sometimes. Just be the best you that you can possibly be. Quit trying and let go. Breathe. Smile. Relax. Step forward in faith.

Thanks to Moms everywhere

Do you remember hearing theses funny sayings come out of your Mommas' mouth? "If your gonna kill each other then take it outside- I just finished cleaning!" "If you don't straighten up I'm gonna knock ya into next week." "You'd better pray that comes out of my carpet." "Because I said so, that's why." "Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you're in an accident." "Shut your mouth and eat your supper." "Will you look at the dirt on the back of your neck!" "It looks like a tornado hit your room." "If I told you once I've told you a million times don't exaggerate!!!" "I brought you into this world and I can take you out." "Stop acting like your Father!" "There are millions of less fortunate children in this world who don't have wonderful parents like you do." What's funny is now that we're parents we use a lot of these crazy,but funny sayings and alot of them still don't make since. Thanks Mom for everything.

problems with site

I'm having technical difficulties w/ my site. Please be patient. Thanks! Windie

This is just crazy spelled backwards

                              Experience needed                   You're constantly hearing ‘only apply if you have blah many years experience ’. How am I or anyone else for that matter supposed to get experience at a job if nobody gives me the chance?  At least to work at a job that pays well. Often people who have little to no experience are harder workers. Because these days lets face it most jobs do not make ends meet. You just earn enough to fill up your gas tank. This makes no sense what so ever. People need to stop and think. And why is it when minimum wage is raised then the prices of everything are raised as well? I’m confused. Doesn’t that set things back the way they were? What was the point of raising minimum wage if nothing changed? This is just a little food for thought folks.

President of the national worriers society

 I have a confession to make. I’m a professional worrier. There I said it. My secrets out! If I could take care of everybody in the world I would. Another thing is I worry about pleasing everybody. It’s my nature to take care of others. I’m tired of always putting everybody ahead of me. The world has been my project. I worry all the time about everything and everyone. It's starting to be harmful to my body. I’m constantly walking on egg shells to make sure I don't hurt anybodies feelings. I have trouble sleeping. My stomach hurts. My heart races out of control. If you’re a worrier too then join me in making this pledge. The worrying has got to stop! And I need to get rid of the egg shells. I can't please everybody. I’m going to lay all these things down at Gods’ feet. I will not make myself sick with worries anymore. I’m better than that. It's not going to happen over night, but it can be done. We have to reprogram our way of dealing with things. I appreciate every ones prayers. I will also be praying for all of you. Thanks.

Keeping it beautiful



Wouldn't you like to live in a prettier world? Remember every time you throw something down and walk off somebody else has to pick it up. Would you wanna pick up someone else's trash? Or animals get a hold of it and chock? Respect your planet & the people and animals that live in it please. Thank you my friends.










When you cut down a tree plant another one some where else. I read some where that one tree can provide enough oxygen for three people. Please check out this site to find out how our trees really do contribute to our very existence. http://www.medway.gov.uk/index/environment/trees/5747.html    What kind of world do you want to leave behind for your children and grandchildren?

It's your call.

Unanswered questions

When my daughter of 6 ask me a question and I don't have the answer my response is , "Let me research this and I'll get back to you". But, what do you do when there is no explanation? Why is a male ladybug called a lady? A dragonfly looks nothing like a dragon. How did it get it's name? And butterfly, Mom it's NOT butter flying. Do you think a catapiller looks like a cat? How come most nursery rhymes are mean? Why was Humpty Dumpty never put together again? Didn't they have glue Mom? Somethings just have no answer I tried to explain to her. She looked at me so puzzled and said,"But aren't Moms' suppose to know everything?" I chuckled and replied,"I wish Sweetheart. No nobody knows everything." I could see the wheels in her head turning as she sat there quietly. Then she ask sweetly,"Will I know all the things you know when I get as big as you Mommy?" I then gave her the same response I remember my Mom giving me. "Sweetie, when you get to be my age I pray that you will know lots more than I do now." I could just see my Mom looking down from her cloud telling me how proud she was of me.

My joy

I find myself as a Mom humming my daughters favorite songs.You know, Hannah Montana, Itsy Bitsy spider, Where is thumbkin. The list goes on and on. Its a good thing I'm a kid at heart. And I love my daughter. I am really so blessed. Like I always say,"God must've really love me to give me my sweet,kind,thoughtful,and loving daughter. " Not to mention shes the shortest comedian I've ever met. ;) When I was a little girl Iask my Mom how much she loved me. She replied with a sweet smile on her face,"So very much. You'll know how much when you have your own little girl someday." Boy was she right. I remember ever detail of the day she was born. That was the happiest day of my life 2nd only to the day I invited God into my life.

What was I thinking

Let me start off by saying I'm 36. I know I'm not alone when I say "What was I thinking?!!??!?" I came across some pictures the other day and all I have to say is, WOW! Some of the hair styles and clothes,good grief ! My excuse is I was young,but the adults around me should have said something. Come on people ! The awful plaid,waterfall and wings hairstyle (if I caught the wind just right I'm sure I would have taken flight just like a kite) .Im sure I wasnt the only girl in high school with a bullet proof head.You know after styling your hair spraying half a can of hair spray on it. A nuclear bomb wouldnt have messed up my hair back then. And what about that light blue eye shadow? EWW! Did we not own a mirror back then? I know it was the style,but lets face it ,it was aweful! Whats worse is you thought you look so....COOL. Have you noticed the word COOL carries from era to era. All other words are cool for 5 seconds and then their lame. I wonder why.Things 2 make you go hmmmmm.

People Are So Funny & I Dont Mean Looking

Well, it's 4:30am and as you've guessed, I'M NOT ASLEEP! Anyway,I'm getting use to it..sort of.As long as I have my Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Peppers NO ONE GETS HURT. Just kidding! There good though.Dont let the word DIET turn you away. Arent people the funniest creatures? Excuse me folks.My dogs just decided that because Moms up its play time. I have a Shipoo(thats a cross between a Stitzu and Poodle)named Bear & a new addition to the family,a miniture Chiuaua named Gracie. AWWW...They finally settled down. My daughters in the other room sawing loggs(sleeping like i should be). Anyway,where was I? Oh yah! I remember now. People being such funny creatures. Have you ever heard the phrase,"Do as I say,not as I do!"? Isn't that the silliest thing to say to a kid? Or "You think you've got it tough. Why when I was your age I had to get up @ the crack of dawn just to walk to school,UP HILL." And everybody says this even if they didn't. And what does PULLING SOMEONES FINGER have to do with passing gas??? Or my favorite ,"We didnt have tv when I was growning up.You youngin's have it so easy these days.Why we use to have to get up at the crack of dawn and slop the hogs and milk the cows and feed the chickens before school every mornin'." And yes I'm from a long line of Smart Country folk. And the thing is we fall 4 these things when we're young. That just makes there day the fact that they could pull a fast one over on you(trick you).Heres one I never understood. Say your Mom was mad and she was chewing you out about something you did or didn't do. She ask you a question. Then in the middle of you answering she tells you to hush up and listen to her. Then after she gets it all out of her system she wants to know why you didnt answer her question a while ago. And thats a loaded question.If you say,"Because you wouldnt let me",which maybe true,but thats not what she wants to hear. Your best bet is to poligitly answer the question . That is if you still remember it. And kids crack me up. Your child ask Mom can I have a cookie and you say no. You know as soon as there out of sight their going on a cookie hunt. Then when you catch them ,WITH THE COOKIE IN THERE HAND, the child looks at you like "How'd that get there?" And proceeds to tell you when you confront them ,"I was getting the cookie for you." :) It's hard not to laugh. Shouldn't we all laugh more? Why should life be so serious? Lightin' up folks! Its a prooven fact you live longer when you laugh. And you enjoy life more.

Food for thought


My 6 year old daughter, Kaydie ask me a very good question the other day. Of coarse I had to do some research to find the answer.Why do our eyes close when we sneeze? Well I've often wondered that myself. Doctors aren't 100% sure,but they believe that it's just a reflex. Are you aware that not everyone has that reflex?When you sneeze most of your muscles tighten. Some people see lights when they sneeze. It's called "Photic Sneezers".  Photic is another word for light. Not everyone has this reaction. It's something that you get from one or both of your parents. Sunlight can trigger sneezing too believe it or not . That's right! Sunlight. I was shocked to find this out to. A sneeze is usually triggered by an irritation in the nose, which is sensed by the trigeminal nerve, a cranial nerve responsible for facial sensation and motor control. This nerve is in close proximity to the optic nerve, which senses, for example, a sudden flood of light entering the retina. As the optic nerve fires to signal the brain to constrict the pupils, the theory goes, some of the electrical signal is sensed by the trigeminal nerve and mistaken by the brain as an irritant in the nose. Hence, a sneeze. Thanks to all the doctors and researchers for this neat information. Just a little food for thought.

Damsel In Distress


I had quite the adventure this past Friday. My car got stuck in the mud. Tes and Poorva my two friends tried to help me get the car out,but...... it just seemed to dig my tires in deeper. I made a phone call. And before I knew it he came riding up on a white horse. Ok, ok, maybe he wasn't riding a white horse. He was driving a white truck that had a lot of horse power. Does that count? Well he got out of his truck and ripped his shirt open revealing his Super clothes. Alright there was no shirt being ripped open. But, his big muscles did play a big part in him pushing.... , (yes you herd me right),pushing my car out of this thick mud that resembled quicksand.Who is this guy you ask who came to my rescue? Was it Superman or Batman? No. Even better than that. My boyfriend Jay. My hero!  I'd have a picture of my handsome man, but he doesn't like his picture taken. Never the less he's still my hero. He's a cross between Superman and Batman w/ a mustache. He's got a heart of gold.  So you'll just have to use your imagination my friends.

The Power Of Music






Music moves me. Literally. I'm one of those people that when I hear music it starts my toe a tappin'. I sing in the shower. In the car I move and groove to the music at the stop sign or red light like nobodies lookin'.  Hey don't laugh, you know you do the same thing. You just don't wanna admit it. I love all music with the exception of the music that involves cursing and hurting people. That's not cool. I also love how music can take you back in time refreshing a memory. Isn't it amazing? Music can move you to feel so many different feelings.The music in any movie can intensify your mood. Music can put you on edge of your chair. It can make you watch from the little cracks in between your fingers. It can also make your eyes well up with tears.Or it can even make you feel empowered. For instance the movie Jaws,Indiana Jones,Star Wars, James Bond,Titanic, and many other movies just wouldn't have been the same.You can identify some movies by the theme music. It's really neat how that works. Don't you think so?

Who's Your Favorite Bear



Who's your favorite bear? Is it Pooh Bear; Smokey the Bear; the Care Bears; or is it the Berenstein Bears?I can't resist Pooh Bear, but Smokey has a good point.  "Only you can prevent forest fires." And of coarse the Care Bears are an important part of my child hood memories. The Berenstein Bears are not my favorite, but they have good morals and they're cute.

why women lie...a moral story


Why women lie... a moral story 
  One day, when a seamstress was sewing while sitting close to a river, her thimble fell into the river. When she cried out, the Lord appeared and asked, "My dear child, why are you crying?" The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water and that she needed it to help her husband in making a living for their family. The Lord dipped His hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble set with sapphires.
"Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked. The seamstress replied, "No."
The Lord again dipped into the river. He held out a golden thimble studded with rubies.
"Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked. Again, the seamstress replied, "No."
The Lord reached down again and came up with a leather thimble .
"Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked.. The seamstress replied, "Yes." The Lord was pleased with the woman's honesty and gave her all three thimbles to keep, and the seamstress went home happy.

Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the riverbank, and her husband fell into the river and disappeared under the water. When she cried out, the Lord again appeared and asked her, "Why are you crying?'' "Oh Lord, my husband has fallen into the river!"
The Lord went down into the water and came up withGeorge Clooney. "Is this your husband? The Lord asked.
"Yes," cried the seamstress.The Lord was furious. "You lied! That is an untruth!" The seamstress replied, "Oh, forgive me, my Lord. It is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said "no" to George Clooney, you would have come up withBrad Pitt.
Then if I said "no" to him, you would have come up with my husband. Had I then said "yes," you would have given me all three.. Lord, I'm not in the best of health and would not be able to take care of all three husbands, so THAT'S why I said "yes" to George Clooney.. And so the Lord let her keep him.
The moral of this story is:
Whenever a woman lies, it's for a good and honorable reason, and in the best interest of others. That's our story, and we're sticking to it.
Signed,
All Us Women

Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't bothering you none. 

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain dance.

Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.
