SoCS~ “Welcome”

A little bit of info on what’s going in my state. The cases of Covid19 are up to 28. Schools and businesses are close for the exception of the grocery stores; some other places are adjusting their hours. As for me, I work this week at the school and I’ll be working next week. We have been cleaning our kitchen and bagging breakfast and lunch for the kids. I don’t know how far we will keep bagging lunches or there is a chance they can close the schools for the rest of the year.

Everything is uncertain at this time. Our lives have changed so fast. We have our last mass on Thursday, this has been the saddest lent. Schools and church services will be online.

I always believe things happen for a reason. It’s time to reflect the way we have been living our lives. We have taken everything for granted. Let’s use this experience to live a little differently and make some changes. Spend more time in our homes with our love ones. Cook homemade food, watch TV, read and play with the children. Let’s cherish what we have, we don’t know our tomorrows. I’m already missing my little ones from school their smiles and their crankiness.

Be Happy, enjoy your home, your love ones and Welcome to our new ways of living.

New Goals- New Year 2018

It’s the last day of 2017. Every year I make a list of goals for the New Year’s. Looking back, I’ve accomplished the majority of them except for making changes on my blog. I begin my first resolution of the year watching and cutting sugars, meaning I’ve lost 30 pounds. I did a lot of walking until the cold weather begun. I accomplished my reading challenge in Goodreads with a goal of 60 and I read 87. I also made a few trips that what’s great, we remodel a few things in my home also great, and a lot of family time. During this summer, I spend time with my grandkids going to the park, the lake, the fair, birthdays, movies, you name it. I’m blessed having my two granddaughters moving in for the school year. Next summer they would be going back to Arizona with my daughter. Finally, she’s graduating and getting a full-time job, her dream job. However, the last two months not so great. In November 12, I lost my father and December 26, my sweet dog Taina.

Don’t take me wrong, I’ve a nice Christmas until the following day. Since then I’ve been depressed also sick with the flu. My mind feels all over the place with no purpose in life.I know in my heart, I’ve a purpose, but I need to find it. I’ve been blessed with a beautiful family, an amazing job, and good friends who are there when you not expected. My goals for 2018 would be at a different level. I want to challenge myself and find my purpose.

My goals for 2018:
1- I’m going back to my church. I need to take care of myself spiritually.
2- I want to reread and study the bible.
3- Be a better person and not judge so quickly.
4- I want to do some volunteering work.
5- I want to participate in a soup kitchen. A friend of mine has been doing it for years.
6- Our principal in our school has a reading program. This will be good for me so I’m signing in.
7- Keep my mind and body healthy. As soon the weather begins to change I’m going back for my walk, meanwhile keep watching what I eat.
8- I’ll be signing for another Goodreads reading challenge. Maybe not reading as many books like before, but reading makes me feel relaxed.
9- I want to do something special with my husband for our 35th anniversary.
10- Spend time with my family and create memories.

Daily Post: Finally

Pink

The reason why my girls love the color Pink:

Girl # 1 (12 years old)

It makes me feel pretty

It makes me feel like a princess

It makes me happy

 

Girl #2 (10 years old)

It makes me smile

It makes me feel strong

It makes me feel super powers

 

Two different responses on why they love Pink.  So, I ask myself why I also love this color. Since I can remember different shades of pink has been my favorite color of course next to purple. What a combination. Pink makes me feel all the responses my girls just gave me over the phone. Also, the pink ribbon reminds me of my battle with breast cancer and symbolizes the courage and the fight for a cure.

Gone

What a perfect prompt for today my girls just left an hour ago, flying back to Arizona. They supposed to fly yesterday, but then we got another winter storm along with ten inches of snow. If it keeps snowing like this, they would not be a place to dump the snow.  In every corner, you can see a huge pile of snow the roads are getting narrow and impossible to drive. The ten days the girls spend in North Dakota they play in the snow almost every day. Those two loves snow, wearing coats, hats, and mittens. Before they left, they kissed me and say it’s been the best Christmas ever.  They always make me smile. In a few hours, they would in their own beds and I am missing them already.  However, we are making plans for the spring and that’s not too far away.
