Share my world every day

Weather gray and cloudy

rolled out of bed

dressed in workout clothes….hahaha

off to McDonald’s to visit with the WWII vets who meet there every morning

they give good advice and seem to know where to go for just about anything

they tolerate me as one of the guys, knowing I am not there to flirt or find a husband

they are genuine persons whom I respect and like

had an egg, cheese,bacon biscuits

came home and burned my throat with warm (hot) vinegar, water and honey…had to take to the bed while the pain went away, felt like a heart attach, kind of

just so you know, or care to know, I  am writing this as a diary for my children, in case they ever wonder, as I do, what my mother did every day.

My Day

the weather is gray with chance of rain

Breakfast: four white donuts; 2 cups of black coffee

Daughter called. She was 50 on May 23 and we had been playing phone tag

Had 2nd cup of coffee on neighbors front porch

Spoke with Chris about deck and tinting front storm windows to cut down the terrific problem of too much sun in the afternoon streaming in the 17 feet of windows in living room

Called lawn care service re cutting lawn. He changed prices from what he said on Friday to today 

Went to Staples to purchase ink for copier, printer, scanner, etc. while I was getting older, ink dries faster and cost more

On to Subway for a foot long heart healthy sandwich which will last a couple of meals. I do not cook. I doctored the 1/4 of the sandwich with sun dried tomatoes, pumpkin seeds, almond silvers. Had a bit of tomato basil soup and a chocolate Boost to balance out lunch!

Stopped on my street to talk to the lawn care company working at the McMansion yard

Now, I will read.

Two items worthy of mention: fired two teenage grass cutters

Called the eye surgeon about not disclosing that the drops I use at night turns your eyes from blue to brown. The only thing I liked about my face were my bluest of blue eyes. Now they are gray. This and other adverse reactions I am having to these eye drops for open angular glaucoma are not pleasant at all: now having asthmatic bronchitis rather than just bronchitis. I could go on but most things are reversible when stopping the drops except the eye color….really a bummer….must accept the situation. I am only upset that this was not explained to me at the beginning; I was not given the right to choose. When will doctors learn they are not God?

Every earth-life should be a Thanksgiving

Every man, every woman on earth today is burdened with heavy debts, as the reciprocal effects or lawful returns or consequences of our wrong-doings in the past. Debts carefully nurtured for us and diligently kept away for us for settlement by us whenever the time is ripe.

Thus every human being comes to this earth bearing or carrying these burdensome debts on his or her neck which he or she carries around, oftentimes unknowingly, until they are ripe for settlement.

This settlement and a change in volition for the good alone guarantee ascent.

And it may happen in an earth-life or take several incarnations before some particular debts are settled depending on the inner maturity, the volition of the individual concerned, the debtor.

But every debt incurred through thoughts, words and deeds must be settled, must be atoned for by no one else but the debtor before he can…

Thanks for these great reminders . I cancelled my therapy session

I received free cognitive therapy because I was surrounded by a crew of little people who greeted each morning with wonder and awe.

 The fleeting dream whicwpid-imag1304h eludes many of us is happiness. We are running around, miserable in our insular little worlds, only catching glimpses of the world around us through dung coloured glasses.
The solution to our dilemma is easy.
Stop.
Take off our dung coloured lenses
Look.
Appreciate.

A therapist would charge you hundreds of dollars to teach you how to do this, calling this method cognitive therapy. I will give you this key to happiness for free.

I discovered this secret after years of mothering my tiny children. They taught me to take my eyes off my exhaustion and to take delight in the plethora of tiny details all around me. Little kids are born with a sense of wonder and the ability to…
