Oh, what a glorious day. God is truly amazing. My daughter got her results from the doctor today. She had a large golf ball tumour removed from the side of her face two weeks ago. We waited patiently for the results that was given today. The results were it is benign. hallelujah., So all in all, today was a good day.

God is truly amazing, I feared the worst until I remembered he said have faith as small as a MUSTARD  seed and if you believe without doubting and have faith, you can move mountains.

 That is just what I did. Praise God, for the last four years my daughter has had over 30 hospitalizations with various medical problems.  So to hear something this wonderful made my day.

I started to cry when I heard the news.  These were tears of joy.  I thank God for having me be still and listen to him.    I knew God was going to make this growth non cancerous, because he told me so.  He made me step out on faith, read the scriptures about faith, and he prepared me for this day.

I am so grateful to have him in my life.  What are you thankful for, I would love to hear from you.



Just Give Them Something To Talk About

20 Oct

I have a friend that whether I am doing good or bad, she feels the need to broadcast this to our friends.  She tells everyone what is going on in my life.  I think this type of information is between us two, or whomever I want to tell.  I don’t think that  is her decision to tell everyone about my personal status.

I ran into a friend a couple of days ago, who I haven’t seen in a long time.  We started to catch up on how we have been since the last time we saw each other.  She stopped me in mid sentence and told me that she gets a weekly update on what is  going on with me.  She knew about personal things that concerned me.

The information wasn’t given to her out of concern, it was that I was just a topic of conversation.   I was very appalled at this , because some of the information that I gave the informant was strictly confidential, and I would never do this to her or anyone. 

I feel that when I am engaged in a conversation with someone that the   information given to me is strictly confidential and it is not my right to divulge this information given to me.  Not only that, if a person wanted to know any information about that individual, they can call them and ask.

I know that I am  not the only one who has a friend who likes to gossip.   I know in my heart that it is not malicious, but I still would like my conversations to be just between me and the person I am speaking to.  Try giving them something to talk about , such as world  peace, hunger, shopping, just anything to stop them from  talking about someone. 

Ask them about themselves, and maybe they will found out that they are interesting enough, and they don’t have to gossip about a particular individual to make the conversation interesting.  They will realize that they are enough to keep the conversation going, and you will find out the reason why this person is your friend, because you have so much in common.

This is one way to get your friend back, you finding out about them and what they have been up to reinforces your friend ship.  I believe if you do this enough, the gossip would stop.   Remember, Just Give Them Something Else To Talk About.

Holidays Are Coming.

Holidays Are Coming

Soon it will be Thanksgiving and  Christmas .  During this year, at the end of the year you can reflect, and realize how strong you were and how you survived the rough economic times you faced this year. Even if you are still employed, there is someone you know who has been faced with the reality of losing their job, or finding it harder to support their family.

At this time , I implore you to reach out to your neighbors, family and friends and the man on the street and offer to lend a hand. If you feel awkward in approaching someone and still want to help those who are hurting then volunteer at a soup kitchen, shelter etc.  You can even donate slightly used or new clothing at a shelter. Remember that there are children at these shelters, and remember Christmas belong to the children. Take toys to your local shelter. I am sure anything that you do to help someone during this holiday season will  be appreciated.

Please respond to this blog and tell me of ways in which your family will enjoy this holiday season and what they are doing to help those in need.

Just another day in the neighborhood.

14 Oct

I live in a neighborhood that is mostly comprised of  working families and the elderly.  I know my neighbors, they are very friendly.  The problem is we have nothing in common.

I work from home, so my neighbors can’t relate.  They think I just stay home and look at tv and just lie around.  I am an administrative assistant, who stays busy for the 8 to 10 hours I put in work from home.

Since I am not around a lot of people, I would like some suggestions for things a single person can do for fun.  A lot of the places I am interested in going to you would have more fun if you were with someone.

In the past I have done volunteer work,  now I don/t have the time or committment to lend myself out.  I remember thinking that one day I would not have a significant other , and I would enjoy the alone time.  I would make this a time for me to get to know myself, and I have.

I have found out that I am a really boring person, and that I am afraid of venturing out.  I need to so I can find me. 


Reader Beware!!!

13 Oct


My title of this blog is a little misleading, no I am not this ominous person lurking behind this blog.  I wanted you to beware that I am a first time blogger, and I am not  a writer, at least not a published writer yet.  I figure it will take me years to become comfortable with writing on this medium.

 I am fascinated with this outlet for posting your thoughts and other rants I might have.  I have seen a lot of great bloggers, and hope that I can learn from them.  I have thought about posting things on the internet, but was a little afraid, I did not know how I would be received.

I have a lot of interesting things to talk about and hope your feedback, which I encourage will help me get an insight on being a better person, qnd become a more informed person. 

So tell me, how was your first time blogging?  Did you have any fears that stopped you from doing this, or did you just plow  right in?.  Let’s talk and have a discussion.
