Family

My husband gave me the best gift for Christmas.  He gave me the biggest hug, and told me how happy he was with me, and his family.

When we put our love into each other, we receive that grateful heart, and peace of mind.

Tonight on Christmas Eve.  My father in law, sat at the head of the table, looked out at his son, his daughter, his grandchildren and told me how lucky he was.

Words aren't coming to me, as I am overwhelmed with love.

Happiness is about "being" happy and content with the blessings you already have. Cherish whom chooses to be in your life.  And let go of all the rest.

Observe or Intervene

There are times where I feel I am supposed to intervene when I feel that my family and friend's safety is at risk.

In today's age, Mental illness, and maniac behavior is getting worse, and many people ignore all the warning signs before it is too late.

With social media, and e-communications, even saving, and turning these emails and posts to the police and attorneys, to show potential danger, does very little, because normally there is not enough to prove harassment.

How do you stop someone from themselves? At what point will there have to be "steps in place" to protect our loved ones from people that cannot control themselves and their anger? Do you have to wait for a specific threat to return like, "I will kill you in your sleep" in order to force someone to get help?

I think with all the bipolar behavior that turns to violence,  one can just hope the authorities can stop the madness before more lives are shattered.

At what point do you stop observing and intervene?

I love LIFE

I have been putting off this post for a while now.

My happiness and joyful mood tells me "Just Be", and enjoy the moment.

I just wanted to share a little of my light with you today.

Learning to relax, let go of people that don't have your best interests at heart was difficult for me.

And then came the guilt.

Why would someone, especially family, hurt you, snub, and blame you for all their failures?

For years, as I look in the mirror, I have truly believed that I must be the jerk that they claim I am.  I must be.

Instead of continuing to prove my worth, I decided to lash back.  Lashing back at others, was what they taught me.

It wasn't necessarily the best way to handle feeling like a loser, but it was my only defense.

Or so I thought...

To analyze the situation, without emotion has always been difficult for me. The moment I would "feel", I would give into self loathing, and retaliate against myself, against others.

And then.. I found out I am a grandma to be.  Clarity hit me like a ten ton brick! Guess what??? Although I was wrong lashing back, I was not to blame for how people pointed their finger at me to place blame as far away from them as they could.  Even when I was not around, blame and hate continued.  Why?  Because anyone who refuses to take ownership of their own successes and FAILURES,  have to find a scapegoat.

That was the first eye-opener.

The second realization was the fact that even now, as I am living and loving life, without any stress, or pits in my stomach, everyone else is still in that misery. Blaming others, angry all the time, and refusal to take any self action to feel better about themselves.

Where am I?

I am happy. I am loved by the people that count. I laugh and smile all the time. I dance like no one is watching. I enjoy intelligent and silly conversations with friends and the family that I choose to be part of my life.

Like I was a better parent than my own, I will be the best grandma ever.  I will lead by example, just like I raised my daughter.  My granddaughter, who's name will be Monica Kimberly, will be another example of my joy. My husband and I will prepare and have fun together, as we have been, and spoil our grandchild silly.

The rest is just noise.  And it has NOTHING to do with who I am, but who they will never be.

Peace on Sunday

Just kicked back on the couch. I do not think it is possible to be more at peace, as I feel right now.
