Different Path

I know sometimes I wonder if I am going the right way or have I really lost my way and that thought hasn't occurred to me yet.

I bet you know that feeling too.
Everyone is doing something or not doing something and you are not following step.

I just have to remind myself 

Some folks just have a different path.
That is truly one of the reasons that we are different.
Why would we all want to be the same?
Wouldn't that be boring?
We would all be drones or brain-washed ninnies.

We need to embrace our different paths and smile because we are different.
We are all going to shine in our own way - no matter which path we choose.

Black Friday?

Do you do Black Friday shopping?

I know I don't and for the most part my family doesn't.
At least not anymore, since the "kids" are no longer little "kids".
And well, not IN the stores with all the mobs.  

Many do online shopping but that could be done any time and may be actually on this Friday.

So we no longer have to worry about being in the middle of these types of crowds.  No worries about being trampled on because we are in the way or God forbid in the way of that precious must have item.
They are probably very nice people ... but well those crazy sales make folks crazy!

I love that we get to spend more time with family.
We have visited historic locations.
We have visited Wineries.
We even visited a Whiskey Distillery!
We have had some great fun visiting places that don't revolve around Black Friday Sales and Mobs.

And sometimes we just stay at home and talk .... 
I know WHAT??? Stay home and talk??

How about you?
What do you do on Black Friday?

Thanksgiving 2018

It has definitely been an interesting year so far, for both my family and for all the families in the United States, if not the world.  And its not done yet!

I just wanted to stop and wish everyone here in the United States a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Hopefully you all have a wonderful day filled with lots of fun and family and of course that wonderful Thanksgiving Table full of goodies!

And if you are one of those that really like to do it right ... or don't want any of your food to touch on your plate ... check out the awesome Tupperware Serving Center.  
I may just have to bring one for my brother :)

Where your journey is

I sometimes have to remind myself of this.
I have found myself blaming myself for not being where I think I should be at this point in my life.
Have I not done something that I should have to move myself further along in my life?
Should I have done something differently?

I saw this one and thought this is it.
I haven't done things wrong, in total.  
I may have done somethings incorrectly in the past and may again in the future, but I do believe this is telling me that even with this, there is a purpose to be found in everything that has moved me upon the journey of my life. 

Have you seen this in your life?
Have you thought about this before, or is this the first time you are being asked to think about it?

Veteran's Day 2018

I know that tomorrow is the day we "officially " celebrate Veteran's Day tomorrow, but in reality we should be celebrating our Veteran's every day.

There are just so many who have served this country, and served her honorably, that we need to remember.  I'm sure you have heard this before, so much so that I'm afraid it's become a cliche BUT

Freedom isn't Free

Please, the next time you see a veteran, say thank you.
And remember that their families serve just as they do.  
They too deserve your thanks.

They give up so much to make sure that we are free to do all the things that we do.  
They miss holidays and family events.  They miss sicknesses, recoveries, deaths and even births with their servicemen and women.

To all those who have served, those I know and those I have not met ... 
Thank you for your service.

What you plant today

I'm sure you have heard this many times before, but just a reminder from me (and to remind myself as well).

We need to remember that life doesn't always go the way we want it to go, but if we are planting the seeds in other's lives, things can be changed.  Just not always immediately.

We can't be discouraged by slow change.
We need to be encouraged by changes that we see.

Embrace the seeds that you are planting today.
Just make sure that you are cultivating and nourishing those seeds every day.

Note to our girls

Lets keep reminding ourselves and our daughters, granddaughters, nieces and even that little girl who lives next door.

We need to encourage them to be themselves and not be swayed or bullied to be what they are not.

I have always advocated for my kids, and no that doesn't mean I've been a bully where they are concerned.
BUT I have always told them that they can be and do anything that they set their mind to and to not let anyone tell them that they can't do something because they aren't "good enough".
