Meander

Go with the flow

immerse yourself in nature

Slow down and meander

Go around the obstacles

Be thoughtful of those downstream

Stay current

The beauty is in the Journey! ~ Ilan Shamir

Suddenly

My granddaughters just ask me what are we doing today? It’s a Saturday and usually we go to the mall, do groceries, and eat out. I look at them sitting in my comfortable chair with my legs up and told them, we are staying home.

After been cleaning all morning and doing laundry, I just want to watch a movie or maybe finished watching “This is Us” or “The Americans”. I can’t decide which one. My husband wants to watch “Longmire”. I like that one, too.

I look at their faces and it was priceless. Possibly they’re thinking I’m lazy and bored. At this point the idea of going out it’s not in my plans.

Suddenly, they came down in their pajamas. They also want to stay home and they didn’t want to say anything. They thought they will hurt my feelings.

What a wonderful Saturday sitting in my chair, with my legs up, and the remote control. I better pour a glass of wine for the finishing touch.

Present

If you are depressed you are living in the past.

If you are anxious you are living in the future.

If you are at Peace you are living in the Present.

~Lao Tzu

 

 

If you are depressed, you are living in the past. – When I’m depressed it could be I’m not as cheerful with myself. Yes, I like to remember the past and if I’ve one chance I would change a few things. However, remembering the past brings joy to my life.

If you are anxious, you are living in the future. – Once a while I feel anxious, but living in the future not too sure.

If you are at Peace, you are living in the Present. – This is the path I intend to be. It’s difficult, but achievable. We are living in a society where you get judged easily. Trying to live a peaceful life it’s hard to get.

What should I do to keep myself at peace and living the present?

1- I love to read and when I do, it takes me to a different world.
2- When I’ve the time I like to write, especially short stories.
3- A few months ago, I begin buying coloring books for adults. Since then I’ve already bought over twenty. I love spending the time coloring. It makes me feel calm and peaceful. That means I’m living in the present.

 

Daily Prompt: Present

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt Day 8th -Pants

The other day I was mentioning to my husband how much weight I’ve lost and no one from my family has said a word. The reason I was making the comment was my sister also has loss some weight. My family has made comments how great she looks. It’s true she looks great; however, why no one has noticed my weight loss. I didn’t get it. I’ve lost 35 pounds and she has loss 20.

However, my sister has bought new outfits in smaller size and for me I’m using the same large pants. Why? Beside I don’t have the time to shop for myself. I would like to wait to lose another 10 pounds. I need to confess I must go shopping. It’s time to join my sister shopping spree. It’s time to get rid of the large pants.

Linda’s #JusJoJan January 8, 2018 Daily Prompt is “Pants”.

 

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt Day 7~Indelible

The word indelible makes me think of tattoos. I personally don’t like them it’s painful and permanent in your skin. Also, when you grow older the tattoos look discolored and wrinkle. This is my personal opinion without offending anyone who loves them.

My daughter loves them too. She had five small tattoos. I told her to please don’t get anymore and for now I believe she’s done. However once a while she’s trying to convince myself to have a mother-daughter one, but then again, it’s not for me.

They’re a hilarious commercial on T.V. regarding a girl eating a snicker, meanwhile doing a tattoo what it appears to be a tough guy’s arm. Suddenly he stares at it and says “no regerts”. She keeps eating her snicker saying “sorry”. I love this commercial it makes me laugh. However, it’s made my point to be careful when having a permanent ink.

In response of Linda G. Hill. Here are the rules and ping back if you’d like to join in.

Missing him…

It has been exactly a week since I lose my father. I’ve been gone from social media and from my blog, my mind is all mess up.
For the past five years I took care of him and I want to think he left been happy. Every time I go upstairs and look at his room, I can still see him sitting in his bed.
I don’t want to be mad at God, but then again, I pray hard to God asking to save his life. I feel abandoned by God. People keep telling me it was his time; however, I wasn’t ready. The doctor checked on him two weeks ago and his legs and posture were getting stronger. The only issue he was complaining was a pain in his shoulder. I asked God why now my dad has to die.
My dad was excited when I get him a poinsettia for his room. He was excited to see his room decorated for the holidays.
On Friday I receive his urn. It’s hard looking at the urn in his room. I can’t stop crying when I look at it. His urn would be in his room until we can get him back to Puerto Rico, where he will be buried with my mom.
I want to thank for the nice comments and condolences. I need to take a short break. I’ve a bunch of paperwork from him I’ve to take care and I need the time to grieve.

Thanks again…

First snow!

I’ve been sick with the flu taking a lot of meds.  However, I wake up this morning looking at this beauty.

This beauty makes me want to begin Christmas decoration. I’m blessed for this beauty, no matter if I’m still sick.  I’m going back to bed, still not feeling good.
