Crying in Public

GreenFlower Have you ever noticed someone crying and stopped to ask if they were OK? I did last Saturday…. then I ended up a few hours later being the one crying (in public). It was so hard for me since I usually don’t cry! Especially in front of others!! The girl thru the drive thru that was crying looked so sad, I had asked her if she was OK and she said “Yes, I’m fine.” I gave her a nice farewell telling her I hoped her day would get better. Don’t know how many people noticed me while I was upset, no one stopped to see if I was OK. Though, I was not crying uncontrollably, I just that unhappy, few tears rolling down the face. Thank God my husband was on his way so I was able to have him comfort me….

What would you do if you saw someone crying in public?

Home Again! Be Nice to Others.

BWHeartHi everyone! Have you missed me? I really missed being home, it was so nice getting away for a few days and visiting with family. My girls had a blast, which is what really matters. Did you get to spend time with family and friends? I plan on having a great summer! Memorial Day has always started out our summers….. Now it shall begin!!

A positive thought for the day…. Be nice to yourself! Be nice to others! And it will make you feel happier than you could have ever imagined.

I spent some time in the Smoky Mountains and the service, people, etc… all so courteous, friendly! LOVED it!!! Get home and ladies that I’ve know for awhile, walking right past me and my house, while I’m watering my garden…. walk right by without even a wave. No “hello”, nothing. So sad!! It’s not that I’m missing out on their friendship, they are missing out on mine!

How did you spend your Holiday Weekend?

Torn – Boston Tragedy

Capture Do I really care if they catch the second brother dead or alive? He may have been influenced by his older brother, does that excuse his actions? I don’t blame his family for “trying” to defend them, until proven guilty. Would you without a doubt defend your family members? Their running away from the police proves their guilt to me.

How are you coping with the Boston Tragedy?

April Fools

april-fools-day25My girls were trying to play a few April Fools’ day pranks on me…. They didn’t quite get what a prank is…

I then explained what an April Fools’ Joke is. I said “hold on, I’ll show you.” Then I start to cry out in pain because I’ve hurt my finger on my phone. (I hurt my fingers on a daily basis – so no surprise). My oldest say’s “Mom, what did you do now?” The youngest looks on with concern…. After about 30 seconds I say “April Fools!!” OK, so not the best prank ever, but it was a good one coming from me!

Now let’s see what we can come up with to fool Daddy when he gets home from work….

Did you play a prank on someone today?
