Pick Your Corner

I've been registered and have voted every since I was 19, and will do so again 11-8-16.I'm not sure how I felt back then, having the right to do so; however, now I feel as if I'm a major part of something. Even if my candidate(s) of choice does not win,I know that just as many opposers went out with the same intentions. To be included.
It surprises me how many people have never voted. How many people aren't registered. Yet, those are the very people who stomp around saying,"The winner sucks". Or, "I demand a recount". Wow, no matter how many times a recount would be performed,there's no way at all, that a "sleeper", will aid in producing a better outcome.Which at this point, would be too late.
No, I'm not a very political person. Yes I dislike havingso many phone solicitations and campaign flyer's crowd my mailbox. But I do read them, in an attempt to make a fair decision.I've even worked at polling sites well into the night.…

Ode To A Runner

I ran in grade shcool and was proven fastest in my day. My track coach once told me that I would make myself and her, very rich someday. Well that didn't happen; but none the less, I was indeed the fastest because I wanted to be. As with everything you hope to achieve in life... You have to want it.

I've given up a lot. On myself, my goals, some of my hopes and parts of my dreams. But never on life! I get sedentary at times, and watch as everyone else runs by. That must stop. It stops now!

I just finished watching a movie, "Miles From Nowhere"(Again).
I recall this quote...

They say that every morning in Africa, an Antelope wakes up. It knows it must out run the fastest Lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a Lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest Antelope or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or an antelope, because when the sun comes up... you better be running.                                          …

Ahhh The Prettiness of Acknowledgements

So, my youngest daughter is always going above and beyond to make everyone happy. Her fiance, her children, me, her siblings, the co workers(she always takes in a card or gift whenever someone needs it, or to acknowledge their goings ons), other family members and... well, you get the gist of that part. She never seems to overly express disappointments. Holding it all in, almost as to not be a burden to anyone. Yeah, she gets frustrated, and she yells a bit, but for the most part, she keeps it moving.

Well she's not a burden at all. She's well loved and I felt she needed to know that, through a gentle expression of my love and appreciation.

I got her 1 dozen Roses, removed the petals from a few, to spread around her porch, leading past her truck and to my car, that was perfectly hidden behind it. I wanted the force of the opened door to vacuum the petals in and spark the initial curiosity. So I sat for nearly an hour waiting for her to walk out and toward my car, so I could h…


Seek approval from those that do not matter Change yourself or your ways to satisfy another Depend on other's to promote your happiness Stoop to a subservient level to fit in Expect everyone's opinion to coincide with yours Bend from your position to purposely boost theirs Hide your true self Forget the enemy that they may resurface Stop cushioning your heart Quit loving yourself Giveup on your goals Doubt that God loves you!
