Still Tuesday.

I know I’m late with the gratitude Tuesday blog. I apologize. Every time I tried to get to it something else happened. First I was a little annoyed, then I thought all these little annoyances are things I can be grateful and thankful for. So I decided to get my mind right.

Went to the farmer’s market today as soon as I got out of the car it started pouring down rain. ANNOYING. Then I switched it to Something Positive I’m eating some of the most delicious freshest food around for about 40 to 50% less then what I would have paid in the grocery store. Fresh homemade cibatta bread, home made spaghetti sauce? I bought fresh mozzerella and other cheeses and our lasagne is going to be off the chain. And the rai  vooled it off while I shopped. Thanks GOD.

My small annoyance got me thinking of all the times I’ve annoyed my mom yet for some reason she’s still glad I’m around. Let’s be fair I think she can walk on water now, but as a teenager she worked my last nerve. Today I’m thankful for every irritation.

I wanted to go away  to dome dark wooded Jason Vorhees infested like place for summer camp. Why? I don’t know I hate being dirty. Everyone else was going so I thought my mom was evil cu I couldn’t go. Well mom thank you. As an adult I cant think of anything worse then sleeping outside eating gruel, getting poison ivy with strangers. Oh what fun. Sooo grateful for that one mom.

Whenever I or my brother were sick my mom would read to us make homemade soup, hot totties then crawl in the bed with her hit infectious feverish child. She did this without any regard to her own personal safety. I’m a germophobe. I might have done it but only with a haz mat suit on and lots of lysol.

Whenever I think I can’t my mom just laughs and says call me when the pity party is over and get it done. Seems harsh but blessed to say my brother and I don’t fail often. Plus she always picks us up after the fall dusts us off then says now get it done. Can’t be anything but grateful when you have a mom who believes in you. After she dust makes the wounds all better she goes to a quiet place and prays for us. How can I be negative with her pulling those shananagins?

Obviously what I most thankful for when it comes to my mom is her love and support. I have some of the thickest hair in the world. As a kid it was long and she was partial to yanking my brains out then putting a bunch of loud annoying barrettes allover my head. I thunk it was a secret tracking system. Couldn’t get far with all that noise my hair was making.  But looking back today sitting in the floor Watching TV getting my hair done were some of the best times in my childhood, That’s when she was secretly showing me how to be a woman. I told you she s something else. 🙂

  1. Yeah but it’s when it gets tough that we have to look decide if we are going to break or soar to higher heights. My wise little brother taught that

  2. Great thoughts today. Sometimes life gets annoying. Things stop working, everything seems difficult. Still, God finds a way to lead us to gratitude. That makes all the difference.

George  Zimmerman makes better fairy tales than the Brother’s Grimm.

George  Zimmerman  and his camp make better fairy tales than the Brother's Grimm. Thankfully nobody dies in his latest attempt at fiction. The most polarized man in America is now being portrayed as a Good Samaritan.  I know it's crazy from killer to saint. We're talking about the man who was unable to stop himself from killing a 17 year old child armed only with ice tea and a bag of Skittles.  Somehow that same Zimmerman turned into a real life hero and managed to rescue 4 people from an overturned car. Hey I can't make this stuff up. It's their story not mine. Really Georgie, you should tell Mark O'Mara to look up "Scandal's" Olivia Pope and her Gladiators to fix this mess your in. The holes in the stories you come up with are larger than the Grand Canyon.  Allegedly On Wednesday July 17th, 2013,  Zimmerman rescued the Gerstle family after their Ford Explorer. It's possible right? Yeah,  maybe on Fantasy Island with Mr. Rourke pulling the strings. Zimmerman's defense attorney O'Mara would have us believe that poor defenseless Georgie is capable of pulling 2 adults and 2 children out of an overturned car all by himself.  So glad for the Gerstle family no one had on a hoodie and the kids weren't snacking on Skittles during the family outing. George the Good Samaritan might not have been able to resist the urge to defend himself from the overturned car.

Michelle Obama’s Speech Trumps GOP Convention

Who could've predicted the words Michelle Obama spoke in 2008 at the Democratic National Convention would again hold us captive? This time the inspiring speech was again met with loud applause and approval despite starring in the mini series that the Republican National Convention has become. It looked like we may have a return to an American version of Camelot. Then the bubble burst.  This election season has been wild, and unpredictable. But this? Not a single crystal ball was tuned into Melania Trump  standing at center stage of the Republican National Convention delivering the words that initially made us fall in love fall with Michelle Obama. A lot can and has been said about the unfortunate turn of events that lead to Melania Trump borrowing part of her primetime speech from First Lady Michelle Obama.
