Disobey

I remember my mom telling me if I disobey her or my dad they would be consequences. Also, I do remember those consequences wasn’t too pleasant. Then I become a mother raising my children in the same way I was raised. How many times my children or my grandkids would break a few of those rules.

The other day my granddaughter who just turn 13 doesn’t want to follow a simple house rule. She’s at that stage of her life besides being moody where she feels our rules are silly. When she feels she wants to be heard then she disobeyed to make her point.

I will see it at work when a student to make a point they break one of the school rules. Also, we have the ones who doesn’t care no matter the consequences.

When my grandkids disobey it brings back a few memories of myself and my daughter at their age. That’s what I call Karma.

I’ve been a little stress ever since I went back to work. I’ve been disorganized therefore I’m working on it. It takes time to get into a routine, especially when I’ve to wake up too early. Between working and taking care of my dad, it looks I need more than 24 hours a day. I expect by the end of the day be done with my food orders and my paperwork.

It’s a holiday weekend and I want to relax and watch hallmark mystery movies. Also, I can continue reading my cozy mystery book. Yesterday I got a few books from Barnes and Nobles.

Recite

Every day as soon as I put my feet on the floor I recite my gratitude’s. I recite “I am truly grateful for _______ because______” finishing with a thank you. I do this every morning since I bought the book “Magic from Rhonda Byrne”. Also, when I go for my walks or driving in my car I love reciting my blessings. It makes me feel appreciated it for the little things I have.

I have been teaching my granddaughters to be grateful and they sound adorable when they recite their gratitude. One of them was grateful for having an ice cream cone and the other was grateful for receiving a toy.

When I feel depressed, it gets a little more difficult because my head begins to spin and I can’t find the right words. However, I keep reciting my gratitude’s until I begin to feel better.

Partner in Crime

Her name is Donna and she’s my best friend and like she always says “partner in crime”. I met Donna in 1999 when we both use to work at the grocery store. We were Deli Managers from a different store. Donna is friendly, lovely, and funny.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 Donna became my guardian angel. She would do anything for me and my family. Through the process of chemo, she would bring food and help me with my kids. She was there for me when I need a friend. Her positive attitude and her smile would take all the pain away.

Three years ago, she retired and moved to Fargo four hours from me. I don’t see her often however, we stay in touch. I missed her and I’ll visit her soon. I’m grateful to have Donna in my life, such a wonderful friend-partner in crime.
