52 Week Blog Challenge-Week 6

I will be 52 in 10 years…hard to believe.  I woke up one day and my angels were grown up and going on their first dates and picking out colleges to attend.  If you are like me, you wish that time wouldn’t be a factor in living.  We all have one life to live and I realized this New Year that I am not wasting a single moment being unhappy or mad at the world.  We have plenty to be thankful for in the world and if we just took the time to stop and essentially “Smell the Roses”as they say, we would realize how great life can be.  Everyday, you turn on your television, phone, computer or radio and hear about all the bad stuff happening in the world, I wish they would bring back those happier times we had long ago and then we all could appreciate life more.  My New Years resolution this year:

Be Positive!

So what will I be doing 10 years from now…

I will definitely be traveling by plane, buses, trains or even cruises. I love to see other places and just the excitement of being on vacation.

I love to write so my blog will still be outlet to express myself to the world.  I write only once a week but I like telling my story.  I am working on becoming an author so it is a work in progress. Stay tuned.

My angels from the beginning to now…..I want to see them be married, have a career and have a family of their own because I do want to be a….

Grandma!! I love babies and kids so much and my children were such a joy to bring into this world.  So so proud of all of them.

I would really appreciate it if technology and fashion went back to old days when everything was personal.  These days we have lost the act of communication and have decided that everyone has to expose themselves or use fake pictures to make a statement.  We are already starting to see clothes that are ripped up and bell bottomed, why not add everyone standing in line for concert tickets.  Its all about the adventure. Let’s go back to face to face and meeting people.

Praying on this right now.  Will the world finally see the light behind all the darkness? Will everyone start to appreciate what they have and smile everyday?  Maybe? Maybe not? Do you think that it is possible to have the “Truman Show” all over again without the violence in the world?  I wish for good health for my family and friends in 10 years and the many blessings along the way.

52 Week Blog Challenge-Week 4

So many times people ask you if you could travel anywhere, where would you go?  For me, traveling means adventure and exploring new things.  I would love to travel to places but because of resources, most of us can’t live out their own dreams.  If I had to pick places to visit this would be the journey I would take….

5 Places I would like to visit

  1. Statue of Liberty- Text_Over_Photo1579993430131[1]

I have been to New York twice for short times and I am still in disbelief that I have not visited the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.  I would love to spend a week in the summer in New York one day and see everything there is to see in New York. 

2. Underwater Adventure-Text_Over_Photo1579993081864[1]

I love all animals on land and water.  I love water but have a fear of swimming and would love to go underwater and experience the wonders of sea creatures.  Mind you, I would stay away from the dangerous ones, but I would like to be one with what God has created.  I have always loved Spongebob Squarepants cartoon and Finding Nemo. My favorite sea creature is the sea turtle, “ToTalllyyy”

3. History in Washington-Text_Over_Photo1579993371201[1]

When you are a kid, most schools take trips to see where history has been made.  Unfortunately, my schools didn’t do these kind of field trips.  I would love to visit the White House and all the other historic buildings in the history books. 

4. In Space-Text_Over_Photo1579993296102[1]

I am a Trekkie.  Yes, I love sci-fi.  I love anything that has to do with outer space.  As a kid, I would love the field trips to the planetarium, although that is not the same as being there. I would like to go to space one day and see what all the fuss is about.   I look out my window in back patio and look in the sky and admire it with all the stars and constellations.

5. Back In Time-Text_Over_Photo1579993198675[1]

For as long as I can remember, I have always felt like I belonged in a different time.  I am what you call an Old Soul.  I have always appreciated the simple and classic things in life.  I love classic cars like Buick’s and Cadillac’s.  I enjoy music that has meaning and expression, not what is written today to put people down and disrespect women and men.  I know that the 60’s wasn’t as friendly with certain ethnicity and cultures but it seems to me that today doesn’t seem to be any different. I am all about love and keeping the peace, I want to travel back in time just like Back to the Future.

52 week blog challenge-Week 1

Happy, Happy New Year everyone!!!🎉 I know it has been along time since I have written in my blog but now I am back with a new challenge! I will be answering questions every week and posting every Wednesday. I love these challenges so I am excited to get started!! So my first week is all about……

Best Friends

Well, I am going to be talking about my bestest friend in the whole world next to my husband is Charlene. Me and her have been friends for over 22 years and has always been there even when we didnt see each other. Before I moved away from my hometown 8 years ago, I knew her from long ago when I was 18 years old and I wanted to move out of my parents home. I wanted my independence. She was 26 years old when I met her but the second I met her, I knew we would have a great relationship. Dont get me wrong, we had our battles from time to time as roommates but we understood one another. Although life can change and people can change their circumstances, she has always been my #1 best friend in the world. She is dependable.

Meet My Best Friend

23 years of friendship

She lives in Ohio and I am here in Florida but distance doesnt stop us from talking every week and praying for one another lives. We finally were able to reunite in 2019 after years of not seeing each other and it was if time never went by. She came to Florida for her very first time and we spent time near the beaches.

Clearwater beach 2019

While in town she was able to meet my 3 kids and reunite with my husband. The story behind my bestie, me and my husband…we all worked together. My husband years ago was our supervisor before him and I even thought about dating and I never thought that he was the man God sent to me. When my bestie saw everything we built together she was so happy for us. You never know who you end up spending your life with and it is still a surprise to me….even after being married almost 21 years😃

Bestie for life

Fast-forward to today…she is and will always be my bestie.

Me and my bff

31 Day Challenge-Day 31

Text_Over_Photo1565902625611[1]

Things that can probably drive a person crazy but I try to hide about myself….let’s get started

  1. I grind my teeth all the time.  I believe it is a nervous tick I have, as a result my jaw is always hurting.
  2. I like to sleep on my stomach because I don’t like looking at the ceiling.  For some reason, the ceiling creeps me out.
  3. I like to keep the closet door closed because I think there is something living in my closet.
  4. I do not like my food cold at all.  My meal has to be steaming and the cold stuff has to be the right temperature.
  5. I walk through my house in the dark and hate to turn on lights.  I figure if there is a power outage, I am prepared.
  6. If I have a light on, it stays on and my family goes behind me and turns them off.

 

Well, I hope you enjoyed learning all about me…wait till next month when I dig just a little deeper!!

  What makes me feel better and has never failed?

                                 MUSIC

music-note-clip-art-21

   I love the sound of music. I love all different genres.  I am a fan of how music can soothe the soul.  If I want to escape within myself it is my way to solitude.  Music lowers my blood pressure, it balances my mood and it is very therapeutic for my disabilities and it also eases my anxiety. 

That’s all I got!!

31 Day Challenge-Day 22

I love music…any kind of music!! The world has changed as far as music is concerned.  Now, being old-fashioned, I will say that music has really gone south since the 80’s.  Now all I hear all about sex, drugs, getting high, disrespecting women and men and shooting each other.  I am so tired of it…I need it to go back to when music was about feeling good and being in love.  I hear these songs that I just can’t figure out why or how they were able to be produced.  Teens these days..this is all they know.  All we can do is teach them right from wrong and hope they know the difference.  Now that I have said that…let’s get down to my favorite songs of all time!!

  1. Head Over Heels by Tears for Fears 

2. Whatever it Takes by Anita Baker

3. Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is by Chicago

4. Another Brick in the Wall 2 by Pink Floyd  (I love all 3 parts)

5. Foxy Lady by Jimi Hendrix

6. Higher Ground by Stevie Wonder

7. Soul Makossa by Manu Dibango

8. Heartbreaker by Justin Beiber

9. Reasons by Earth Wind and Fire

10. What’s Going On by Marvin Gaye

Enjoy all the videos…until tomorrow for Day 22
