Writing letters ..

There is nothing better then the feeling you get when writing a letter . Somethings shouldn’t .. must not become the thing of the past. It’s such a beautiful , peaceful feeling when the words flow from the pen in your hands . Your fingers writing out the words you hope makes someone’s day ..brings a smile to their face or a laugh to their ears .It can be a random topic of silliness or a encouraging message . And yes it can at times be sad so a comforting word or two to get them through..but I only hope it’s always good. It can be a long turning of pages or just one page it does not matter how long or short it’s the words that matter and touch their heart and soul. Write a letter sometime , give it a try and see how it makes you and that special person who is receiving it makes them feel. ❤️

Mornings

sitting outside enjoying my coffee this morning ,the humidity is slowly moving away once again the cool breeze feels beautiful. Love when each morning feels new and like a clean slate … A day to start something new or make a fresh start in life..make some thing thats wrong and turn it  into a right or just keep being ,doing what is good . Most important be the best that you can be .Many possibilities. Open your mind your heart to something good and new today. While doing that you could be putting a smile on someone’s face who needs a kind person to be near . I love this saying I’ve heard “do not let life harden you” with all of lifes ups and downs it can. Now to enjoy the rest of my coffee and the beautiful blue sky above me .  Enjoying some time with my son today. After a beautiful day spent with my daughter the day before.❤️image

The whys….

Its been a long week and it’s only Monday… going to be a long week until Friday . It’s Feb vacation for school and it’s the vacation I never could understand .. The weather is rainy or snowy but then melts and sadly it’s a week of no money the week before when you get paid every other week …. My son is going out of his mind it’s the evening he came straight home after practice ate and planted himself on his bed in the dark . Im helping him  to a point for necessities but it’s a no pay week for us as well and when your on a budget you do what you have to do.plus he found out his car that we thought was in great condition has some issues so tomorrow it goes to the garage to see how bad even though I’m a bit nervous I told him will deal with it you can use mine ,so not a good time  I know there is worst things in life then no money …car issues again  but  sadly there  are times like this ,been here before its just sad it comes at a time that is not conveniant but when is it?  This generation cannot deal with it . . Back in my day yes things where cheaper , cars fell apart we delt with it we had to get creative to occupy our time with our friends sitting at a friends( even if they picked us up )house watching movies back in my day it was music videos on mtv  and snacks and a bunch of laughs when we had no money . This day in age it’s go out to eat go to the movies eat out oh did I just say that hahahaha yes I know I did but this is all they know what to do….so frustrating  let’s see my son is home in his room laying there on his bed with phone in hand looking like he lost his best friend.. I ask him where are his friend home ok and this friend home hmm so their all sitting at home because no Money  so I to say to him cheer up soon you will get paid  we all have days months like this I told him sadly look at the alternative as my gaze goes to the nightly news talking about the school shooting and so heartbreaking families burying thier  love ones such an unfair tragedy . My son looks at the tv and says I know I understand believe  me. I know he does know life is more about money but sadly our minds are programmed that money makes us happy ….ok yes it does  it makes things easier to a point but it’s also a nuisance when we don’t have any it sets our mood …just so wrong we know life is much more then that.

I go into his room and  suggest ask a friend to spend the night he says to me I’m okay I’ll be fine now this is different usually he would bark at me  but he says it  nicly I say do you have a book you need to read for school read it take your mind off things he smirks at me I should know who I’m talking too that would be what my daughter would do not him haha and then I see his phone light up he smiles , laughs and I pat him on his arm and walk out of the room he looks at me say what was that for . I just smile back and say I’m happy I see a smile on your face.even though it was technology  helping him connect to a friend . Now if we can just focus on the positive now I’m smirking ME positive hmm not a trait I do well, sadly when  Life and it’s moments have made me this way  it’s not always what we asked for and I have learned this along time ago and more in the past year and it’s just really hard and I’m not talking about money ..life is hard it’s just trying to find the way through it  .. To the beautiful part of it as well..and there is a lot of beautiful moments it’s just with everything that has happened and the world filled with so much more of worrysome things that just prooves to us shows us  not to take anyone or anything for granted .  Be grateful and take life one day at a time is how I get through it❤️

Pleasant Day!

Even though it was was just one of those days during the week that your basically just doing what you do your mind is at ease you get things done easily and it’s just makes for a pleasant day 🙂 I think it helps that today is the last day of January …..not my favorite month . Plus I ran in to my favorite nephew who my son could be his mini me even though my nephew is in his 30’s him and my son resemble one another in just about every way looks their mannerisms …. and girls are attracted to them and they know it but they know what they want . Their hearts are both so big . So that made my day to see him and his lady . After that I came home and started making my homemade chicken and rice soup which happily it’s done and the house smells so good , Perfect on this cold day. . Now just waiting for everyone to come home . Once again I will remind you it really doesn’t take much to make me happy❤️

Another day..

A rainy snowy cold day again school was cancelled , but thankfully just in case it was not going to be my son slept over a friends so  we wouldn’t have to worry about getting out of our driveway …..One of the downfalls of country living  for the  most part our driveways are basically a road and unfortunately we have a slight hill that my car loves so much. …not 🙂 so it was a quiet night with my son not home with his music playing as loud a as he can get it. I missed him but was happy he was safe and we wouldn’t have to deal with this weather.  Now just waiting for him to get home….thankfully my Daughter  had the day off so we stayed up a bit later last night and enjoyed some shows my husband went to bed …  so today was quiet day with my daughter doing things in her basement and so I did my things around the house and as I was I saw the most beautiful Cardinal at my feeder it  was so red. It was even better then seeing the sun at the moment . It really brighten this day up even if it was only for a moment.  I love when even on a dark day there is something that can brighten it up and make you smile.
