Abilities and Faith


November 8, 2017

Thankfulness continued; I am thankful for the ability to read and write. I love reading just about anything, it goes with learning on a daily basis. I love expressing myself in writing or sometimes in music. The past year of becoming a blogger has been a dream and next year I will attempt to write for money. I have several short stories hid away from college days.  2018 hopefully will shine a new light on writing.

I’m also thankful for living in a country I can express and share my faith without pressuring anyone to see or do things my way. I may never know how my faith or prayers helped someone in life, but I’m thankful I’m brave enough to approach them with examples anyway.

Being Alive 


Turning 50 this year, was exciting and although I didn’t walk across the stage and receive the long awaited degree I’ve been fighting to get completed for years, I have a lot to be thankful about anyway.

Here’s a small list:

1. Being Alive to see 50

2. My mom is still here, although dad is missed

3. My spouse is still here although retirement sucks because of illness

4. We have great kids and an adorable grandson

5. We have wonderful friends, some old and some new. 

Being Alive at the age of 50, is great and although this Caregiver position leads me towards  being a Widow, I’m thankful for the time spent caring for loved ones.

November A month of Thankfulness


November is a month of Thankfulness. Also begins a crazy business that overwhelms some people more than others.  

As a Caregiver and an active woman, I have a ton of things to be Thankful for at my age. I hope I can share some and hear from my followers also. 

Happy November 🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍂🍂🍂🍂

October Baking!

imag1163.jpgOctober will begin tomorrow, I originally was going to attempt to do a full-blown baking challenge for the month. Because of caregiving situations a 30 day baking challenge would be difficult to keep up with and I am not a food blogger. 

I’ve decided to share my favorites and recipes tried from other bloggers as often as time allows during October. Please leave comments with food bloggers I may want to check out or maybe a recipe I should share. 

Happy Fall Season to All!!

Day #24

#challenge #music #365daysofwriting

Day #24  Is Favorite Rock n Roll artist. So if you read my blog and personally know me you are in for a huge surprise. Most of you see Favorite Rock n Roll artist and assume Elvis Presley will be here.  I am a very big fan of The King of Rock n Roll. I can pick one of his songs for almost any mood, yet that’s because I could get away with playing his songs in my childhood home.  

Funny how generations never change. My parents born in the mid 40’s and grew up in the 50’s and 60’s experienced lot’s of different music and probably were forbidden not to play some.  I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s and experienced the same treatment. My children were raised in the late 80’s through 00’s and the only restriction they were given is if you listen to Rap You must wear headphones.

Anyway I have posted 2 songs from Bob Seger;  He was one of the first artist I purchased music of growing up. 

If you grew up in the 70’s and 80’s please share in the comments of some favorite artist from our Era. 

Music 🎶Challenge

#Challenge  #Music Day 20

Today the challenge is a song for my funeral. 

No doubt in my mind that it would be this one. 

When I’m gone

I would want you to remember any lessons I taught you or the way I May have touch your soul. You would be alright When I’m gone.

Extra Music 🎶Challenge

In the middle of a 30 day music 🎶Challenge

A song that reminds you of your spouse or partner!

My spouse that is now on oxygen and very sick is a country boy!!! He also ran Heavy Equipment for a living! 

When he was using a tractor 🚜 to take care of our homestead I was always watching. I 💘maintain lawn. His gardens were always to much to handle but I’d do it all over again if he were able.

Not very often but once in a while he would have me come to construction sites to have lunch. I always enjoyed seeing how he earned the money to provide for his family.
