Papa's 95th Birthday

Thirty years have passed us by,

It's very hard to believe,

At first our hearts were broken,

They needed time to grieve.

Many things you taught us,

A love of nature was just one,

But there were many others,

Some were just for fun!

Then the times that you were stern,

Made us do what we were told,

Spanked us with a wooden spoon,

But those were times of old!

Then when we blinked we missed you,

The Universe beckoned you forth,

To us you seemed a hero,

The image of true self worth!

And though the years have been many,

Since we have seen your face,

We still can feel your presence,

And even you love's embrace.

Happy Birthday Papa xoxoxo RIP

Summer was Awesome - Bring on Fall

Well I really didn't get to finish everything I wanted to write down yesterday as I had to head out for work!

Summer was awesome!!!! We didn't do alot but still had a great time. Went to Niagara Falls with & without the kids several times. Went to the beach with friend/s. But mainly just relaxed!!!

My healing process from surgery is complete now. Thank God!! But Doctor says that I'll never be able t o move furniture by myself again......There goes that fun lol ! But summer is over now!! The ending of something but the beginning of another!!

Brandon started High School & I was very scared for him!!! But he is doing awesome!! He absolutely loves it. Jordan is on his own this year (without his body guard that is lol) but he seems to be doing great also!! He is not impressed that he doesn't have any friends in his class but hopefully his marks will reflect that!! lol I can hope can't I????? lmao So I'm kind of at a loss!! They have totally baffled me, both of them! lol But hey, what are kids for??? :o)

I myself have gone to full time hours. I started my new job back in May after my surgery. I was hired on part time but one of the girls, :'o( miss her already, went on maternity leave so now I am working full time for a year!! I love my job! My boss is great, the girls I work with are awesome, although one of them drives me rather nuts at times, but it takes all kinds to make the world go round! lol

I have previously written about two different individuals that I wasn't getting along with very well. One of them & I have become very close again & i'm very glad :o) I missed her as I have said before, I love the way she makes me think!! The other I have re-established communications with, we'll see how that goes!! lol I love spending time with my friends but am trying to remember that my sanity comes from my quiet by myself time!! Time to think, go within & to contemplate!!

So today, as my hubby is going to be out with the boys from work & my kids are going off to mom's, I think i will have lunch with a friend but then I'm coming home & enjoying being with myself. lol It goes with my previous writing, if we don't know who we are, then how can we love ourselves!!! In order to love others, we need to love ourselves first!!!!!

My prediction for 2009 was that 2009 was going to be fine!! So far it has been. Bring on fall!! I can't wait to see what the rest of 2009 has in store!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Well I haven't been writing lol so much for writing on here everyday! Today I just had too much to say for a one line comment on facebook or msn.

Today is a day of emotion for many. My thought on 9/11 for today "May we never forget that we are not untouchable!"

A friend on facebook has the comment today " That Karma is how we react to other people!" This has me a little befuddled!! Does the law of Karma not state "What you put out comes back to you times 3?" Yes we should be aware of how we react to other people, but letting people humiliate & walk all over us is not good for the soul. Maybe what we should remember here, is to be aware that maybe we have done something to someone in past & this is karma's way of giving it back to us! I read Eckhart Tolly's book & did the classes that Oprah did & I believe his idea's of "Being in the moment" are good ones!! If we are aware of what we are doing right now at this very moment then we will be aware of our reactions!!!

Gotta head out. Have a great day!!! :o)

Hahaha OUCH Hehehe OUCH lmao OUCH

Well I finally got my surgery done thank goodness. I'm sore, cranky & dopey. lol

I've realized that morphine is an awful, awful, drug. Anyone who takes it willingly, in my opinion lol, needs their head examined. I'd much rather be in pain!!!!

I also realized that you should not watch The Comedy Network with an abdominal incision. hehe OUCH.

Have a great day everyone!!

Today would have been my Grandfather's 93rd Birthday!! He taught me to love nature & to love the Earth. I miss him very much!!!! He may not have followed a specific religion but he was the most Spiritual person I've ever known. I believe in my heart that this has to do with the stories he used to tell me about time he spent with the Native American people in Death Valley! Love you Papa!

What can Spirits Do?

Well if you know me, you know that I'm always joking about the Ghosts of McFarland Manor!! lol I do have spirits in my house & I revel in their company. Yes I'm weird, as most of my friends tell me!! lmao

Anyway, yesterday when I was on the computer, I watched my friend sign in & out of MSN Messenger. Why would I find this weird you wonder. Because my friend works nights & was sleeping at the time. As the message kept coming up " signed in" & then "signed out" over & over again, I recalled a day when I had been over at a friends house having coffee. We had gone over to her computer to check some stuff out on the internet. While we were doing this, I sat there & watched myself sign in & sign out of msn over & over again. I thought this was pretty good since I was halfway across the city!!!

So as I was watching my friends msn continue to do this yesterday, I jokingly said to my husband "............... ghost is playing with her computer!" lol

But now I've got to thinking because I know my friend does have at least one Spirit in her house!! The ice cold shiver up my spine kind of gave that away when I went to visit her, & since I know that I have several in my house, mostly ancestors coming to visit, it got me to thinking............Just what can Spirit's do??
Here is one to totally freak you out; I had a very strange, vivid, wake up with a jolt dream just before Christmas. One of those ones that you know have meaning but have no idea what that meaning is!! When I woke up the next morning & went on the computer....there was a webcam picture of me getting my morning coffee about two hours earlier. I had not taken it & everyone else in the house was sleeping!!! So who HAD taken the picture????
There seems to be proof that Spirits can be heard through recording devices, many people have pictures of orbs, me included. There is even photographic evidence that Spirits show up in pictures taking form. We have all heard stories of ghost moving objects..........& I swear one of mine is a trickster lol, but can our Spirits, our guides & our ancestors actually mess around with our computers??? Wouldn't surprise me in the least!!!!

Just a note of thought!!!!

Have a great day everyone :O)
