Acknowledging The Men

Image
There have been tributes paid to a lot of people for various reasons. We tend to scarcely point out the good, but frequent the bad in an individual. Sometimes we whisper or note to "others" what kind of impact a person has in our lives. We seldom take out the time to say out loud, "Hey, I sincerely like, love and or appreciate you"


Today, my blog is ode to one of my three son in laws G.E.F. I'm using his initials out of respect for his privacy. He has presented himself to me as one of the wisest, kindest, selfless, men, friend, father, husband and son-in-laws, that a lady, child, mother and mother in law could ever hope for.

Do you know(of course you don't, so I'll tell you)that, today, he got in that kitchen all clean, groomed and groovy; and birthed ME a collaborated cookie. Yes he did. I had a small part like telling him what suits my palate. He ran with it and came up with... "Holiday Bliss"... Yes, my cookie has a name.

It contained Oatmeal,…

Has anyone seen my... How can I put this? My uhhh, Will Power and Self-Discipline
There was a time when, if I thought it, I could position it into existence.
Wanting to do and be better at what ever I am lacking in. Being able to say, I can do it. Guess what...I can't right now.
I never wanted to speak that word and let it ride. You've been told your whole life, never to say you can't. I'm sure that I can, somewhere within myself. I've just misplaced that switch. My "positive" package has been misplaced or lost amongst, the "used to be" box. Perhaps it was buried along with my belief box. The one that contained my confidence and certainties.(((shrug)))
Yes, I've looked under there. Uhh hum, looked over there too. I doubt if it's been stolen. I don't interact with people that would do that to me. The last time I saw it was, uhh, wow... it's been a minute. Maybe I've gotten too comfortable with myself, and felt no need forenhancemen…

Music DOES soothe the savage beast...well Me anyway

Ahhh, listening to good music can take you far beyond a gloomy, boring effortless day. You don't have to know how to dance. And, as long as you keep it on the low, you don't have to know how to sing either . HOWEVER...If you decide to share your pretty little voice, it'll help to know all the words. (hence the links)

I can be sitting around doing nothing and loving it. I would be laying around getting bigger, and hating it. Something clicks... girl, get up and listen to some music. All types of music. All genres, all day all good!

Hmmm... lets see; first to gradually get my blood flowing, I'll listen to a bit of this. Now I'm up, got love on my mind, so I decide to mellow out a bit with a few tracks of this and that.

Ok just a tad bit too relaxing, I feel myself slipping back under, so I flip the script and toss on some of this. Yeaaaa, that's it. Get up yawl... lets shake this, bounce that. Now that blood is reeeeallly flowing. You done started cleanin, and danci…
