It could be worse....

When you complain about your job and work conditions.
It could be worse. 

This is the Lunch room, when my Dad worked.  The Copper Mines were 3000 ft under the surface.

They had several lunch rooms, in the mines.  Kinda fancy for that far down in the ground.

It could be worse, in most cases, of life.

Help Me To See.......

Help Me to See

Lord, help me to see
As I look around
Your presence with me
Waiting to be found.
Help me be aware
Of your gifts every day,
Seeking always to share
In some special way.
Give light to my eyes,
Put a smile on my face
As I recognize
The signs of your grace.
Lord, please guide my feet
To find my way through
Obstacles I may meet,
Showing me what to do.
Help me see good things
You’ve sent from above,
The blessings life brings,
The gift of your love.

A Journey

The past year has been a journey inside of me.  I can blame say that some of it was medication side effects.

I learned a lesson, about every tiny thought I had before.  "I would not do that", "I would not put up with that" etc.

We do get to face some situations, to walk a mile in someones shoes.  This teaches us have compassion, for others.

Faith Imagined explains this journey of the soul very well.

When I traveled this journey inwardly, outwardly I became better.  I walked more, the MS (Multiple Sclerosis), seems to be in remission.

God was and is always there to protect us.

I was taught outward appearances (not that I was that bad), can be deceiving.  Try not to Judge!

Friday Flashback

When my son was 5, he decided, he was not wearing his seat belt.  I drove them, to school for years.

I should have seen, how he would be stubborn make his own path in life.

I was driving the van with hand controls then and now.

He would unbuckle,  I could not make him buckle up.

When we got home, after a few days, of his safety being compromised.

I sat in the van, made him buckle up 50 times.  We counted.  He has buckled up since.

Do you think our heavenly Father, could be thinking the same?   I am doing this for your safety.

When Stung by a Stingray

This is my sister's story of toughness, since she was stung in the ocean while on vacation 

She visits the Doctor for a check-up a month later, in Tennessee.

She said, "I have a strange question that you have never heard".

The Doc says, "Oh I am sure, I have heard most".

My sister said "I was stung by a stingray while on vacation".

The Doc was surprised and said "That is one, I have not heard" since he is far from the ocean.

He told her, "you can have the barb removed by surgery or let it work its way out".

Of course, she says "I will let it work its way out".  The spiny barb can be seen under the skin of her ankle.

I would have it removed, of course.  I saw it a month later, since it was still in her ankle.

She is so tough and does things the old-fashioned way.  I tease her living like they did back in history.

We are blessed now with a health system, they did not have back in history....

Marriage Seminar Weekend

Since we are heading into the boring growing old together stage of marriage after 25 years. 

We were surprised by this sudden invitation to a Marriage Seminar this weekend.

I believe God provided us a way to go to Marriage Seminar with Life Gate.  The National MS Society, Georgia Chapter  enabled us to go.

We spent 8 hours of training (yes it was a long day) to improve our relationship. 

We were taught how to connect during stressful times and also dealing with MS.

They showed us new ways to communicate better. 

It was a great help just talking about these subjects.

"I Feel like you are ignoring me, I Feel like you do not listen to me, I Feel like I need alone time" etc.

I Feel like this weekend was sent to us personally by God! 

When being married a long time we can forget how to communicate.

    I saw these beautiful reflections outside my window.  (very blessed)

The reflection changes every moment, like our lives do.

Look at your life.  Think of the kind of reflection you are leaving.

When The Dog Knows More

Our horse dog, kept barking down the hall, going back and forth.  He was trying to get our attention.

We kept saying, calm down, go outside, get your bone, etc.  My sister even heard him, while talking to me on the phone.

Our son finally gets up, tells us, he was letting a friend stay here.   The kid could not go home, yet.  He had missed his curfew.

We had a stranger in the house, asleep behind the closed door.

This was lunch time, before we knew, our horse dog, knew more than we did.

Lesson here, listen to your dog, sometimes they know more.

2.  Having a Dad, he is doing ok.
3.  The ability to breath, I have seen many struggle.
4.  Having dirty shoes!
5.  Waking up this morning....

Can you see the deer?

It is a good, that I am not a deer hunter.   

I did not see the deer, in my backyard. (Husband did cut down a few trees)

Be careful, for things you do not see.

This July 4th brings back many fond memories of going to watch fireworks with our kids.

I would drive around with my scooter to watch fireworks from many different parking lots....and Wedowee Lake...and McCaysville to watch them catch Tator Hill on fire name a few.

The fun of it was watching  with friends and family.    These are the memories of a good Life!
