Thoughts Of My Mother.

Dona nohemi manos 2

Just a few years ago my Mother passed.

She was an astute and very smart person.

We had the longest conversations as we traveled

by train from the border town of Nogales all

the way to Guadalajara. She had an extensive

knowledge of Theology and baseball stats that

I am yet to find on anyone else.

She would challenge me with questions not

about religion but about God and faith.

She did not much care for any particular

religion but she was none the less a strong

believer.

Tomorrow would have been her birthday and

I find myself missing her quite a bit.

Maybe because I mentioned her a lot on my

new cook book or just because I miss her words.

We do not have all the time we want or that we

will need so in the here and now let’s do what

we can and live and try to live better every day.

Today. I pray for my mother.

Believing.

comfort zone

Believing is the basis of it all.

Have a great Sunday wherever you are whatever you are doing

with whom ever you might be.

May the New Year bring you all that you want and desire.

May We All Have Peace.

Life’s Lessons

an arrowAre you NORMAL?

Because I am. I hate it when things don’t go my way.

I hate it when life and the universe don’t see my genius and crap all over my plans.

It is true that we learn more from the setbacks than from things going our way

but I still dislike it with a passion.

I have become better at dealing with set-backs but it still takes an active choice

not to get into an argument with nature, karma, God and every other force in the universe

when things don’t work out my way.

I also try not to waste the lessons of failure and set-backs and strive to get the

last drop of wisdom available to me. (all the while kicking and screaming)

So I ask you again: Are you normal?

Gang hope you are having an amazing week and as always

all the best of the best for you all and those important to you.

This One Is About YOU.

kick ass

And another Sunday Gang.

I hope you are celebrating that you completed your GOALS

for the year 2018.

It is a great thing to have those completed and out-of-the-way

before we get hit with the onslaught of the holidays.

All the best to you all.

The Meds In Our Days.

Pills

I know very well that I have to take certain meds

every single day. At very specific times.

 I know that I need them.

But What to do when for whatever reason we

are unable to take them. What to do when

the pain hits and you are unable to function.

If you are depressed or dealing with fibro

with out your meds you might as well

just sit and breath as there is not much else

you can do. I KNOW.

There are many reason why we at times are

unable to take our meds as prescribed and

we must avoid that by any means but when it

happens try to have a plan B even if it is just

to howl at the moon in a therapeutic fashion.

or fantasize about inflicting the same pain

on some one who has not kept their promises.

Hope you never go through putting up with pain

because of lack of meds… It Sucks

If you use lyrica or Cymbalta like I do you know

how severe the withdrawals are if you do not

follow the prescribed times.

I guess I am just venting and letting my own

body know that we still have more battles to

fight in the future. All in all pains and all

I am grateful to be alive today.

I wish you all a great one today and always.

Waking UP.

actually. i just woke up

It seem that as of late I have been asked way too many times:

“What Made You Decide To Change?”

One day I just decided that no one person or no one situation

would ever have so much power over me.

I decided that those friends who continually tell you I will pray for you

but never offer you a coin when broke or a piece of bread when hungry

have no true and vested interest on us.

That if it had to be it was up to me therefore, I promised my self never to

ask another “Don’t let go of me.”

That I am worth it not because of me but because of the one who created me.

I realized that I wanted and deserved a better, longer, healthier and happy life.

That a failed relationship did not preclude me from finding love again.

That having been overweight did not mean that I was to stay that way.

That loosing my position and wealth only meant that I had something else coming.

That there would be someone who would take and accept me as I was and to whom

my struggles and challenges would not be a deal breaker as they made their presence felt and,

carried some of the load and at times all of the load so that I did not have to face the world alone.

Because I had those that did pray but, they did not pray for me…They prayed with me.,

a lot has changed and my life now reflects it.

NO. Prayer in any form is not bad or unwelcome but, I remember what my parents taught

all of us as kids: after we pray on our knees we get up and go and pray with our hands, feet

and backs so we can do our part in making our and other people’s miracles a reality.

I am thankful., oh so thankful for the many kindness I have received during the last couple of years.

I know that I have a purpose and if I have a day or a hundred years

I will work every day and in some way re-pay all that was given to me.

I want more. I want better.

I want health, wealth and a family

And that is why my prayer is never for things to be given to me

or for life to be easy and not even for many friends.

All I ask from GOD is for my loved ones to be healthy and safe

and for me.  Peace of mind.

With that I can and will take care of the rest.
