What does Memorial Day mean to you? It is more than a day off. It is a day to remember ALL the men and woman who have fought for our freedom. It is a day to say thank you to them a day to pay tribute to ALL that have fallen and served. If not for them the world would be much different. The world is not at it’s best right now and eventually it will be better. If you have time today or maybe just make time today thank a vet and do some act of kindness. Something to share how you feel. For remember freedom is not free. God Bless America the land of the free because of the brave. Now onto the next life lesson. Thank you fallen!

Some of the people in your life are here for a reason. People come and go and sometimes you have those rare ones that stick by you no matter what. Others are just there to teach you lessons. Some lessons we learn right away and others take longer. Sometimes it takes a little longer to see certain people for who they really are. We learn all kinds of lessons on trust, loyalty, honesty, and true friendship. Some pass and some fail. Sometimes the ones that we trusted the most end up hurting is the most. We never see it coming. It is to late and then it is over just like that in a blink of an eye. Eventually, you move on and you think about it and you often wonder were they really your friend? Or was it just a sun shower? You may never know. The people in your life some are here to stay and others move on and find more people to know and the cycle keeps moving. You may ask yourself is it worth mending the friendship? I guess only you know the answer. You should do whatever you feel is right for you. If they realize they made a mistake maybe you forgive or maybe you just move. Do what you are comfortable with. I always say follow you gut. Now onto the next life lesson.
Sometimes in life we need some time to catch our breath. We need to sit in silence and collect our thoughts. When the voices get loud and the room seems like it is closing in it gets to be to much. There are times you need to shut the world out. You just need to take 5 maybe even ten or twenty. We all need our own space. Time to reflect and settle down. I know I need to. There are times I feel overwhelmed and tired and I just want to scream. Do you ever feel like that? How do you feel most of the time. I like when it is quiet and I can think and settle down. I enjoy the quiet and the silence. Sometimes quiet is all you need. They say silence is golden. I agree there is nothing like pure quiet. Now there is a time for fun and loud parties. We do all need fun. We just need to balance our time. Now onto the next life lesson.
When you accomplish something big it feels really good. You worked hard and you earned it. It is something that you have been wanting a long time and it feels good that you did it. You earned that award or raise. You know what it took and you would do it again. Sometimes we do not get the award or the pay raise but we learn from it and we do better next time. We learn how to compete better, Not everyone is going to get the trophy and not everyone should . You need to accept loss and move on. Think about how to do better and practice and focus. However, when you do make it and you do work hard it feels good all over. What have you achieved this year? What goals are you setting? What are you involved with? How are you focusing? I bet you have it all figured out. You are planning your next move like chess. Taking time your time and building a strategy. Then when you do it you know you did it well. Good luck to all who are earning their way. Now onto the next life lesson.
What is your dream? What do you hope to accomplish in life? Are you happy with your career? Are you doing what you set out to do? If you said yes to those questions than you are truly blessed. if you are not happy in your career will you change it? How do you feel about making a change? Are you ready for the change? Have you thought about it? It is amazing to do what you love. If you are doing what you love than you are blessed. Dreams are not out of reach for anyone. You can do anything you set your mind to do. All you have to do is work hard and believe in yourself. if you know in your heart it is yours than you need to go for it. Set your goals and each day cross off that goal or however long it takes just do it. Stop chasing your dreams and capture them. Let me know how you did. Did you accomplish your dreams? I hope you did. I want to hear from you. You worked hard and now you go it. It is yours to keep. Congratulations you did it. Now onto the next life lesson.
Your life was taken way to soon. It is a parents worst nightmare. It was your last day here on earth. Now I do not know you or your family and I would never make any assumptions or say anything wrong. I will say speaking as mother this is the worst pain and I cannot imagine what you are going through. I will say this we live in area where people care and want to help. If you want to help than pray for the family of Tristen Bailey. Pray that God can give them strength. Now people will comment and talk you just go about your grief and we will continue to pray for you and your family. Let the Police do their jobs. None of us know the truth yet but in time we will and when we do we still need to respect the family and their time to grief. We need to be considerate of their privacy. Let this family grief and morn their daughter. Rest in peace Tristen and do not worry angel there will be justice. Watch over your family and friends. God bless the Bailey Family.

We may not know it at the time but sometimes things are a blessing in disguise. We think we know someone or a situation and when the worst happens it you begin to realize that maybe it was a blessing. Sometimes life takes us a different path and we need to learn from our past to better our future. Everything happens for a reason. I am a firm believer in that. As long as we have God, our family and a few close friends I think life is good. Not every job or move or friendship is going to work sometimes we go hit some bumps in the road and that is okay. As long as we do not repeat the same mistakes and we learn we are going to move forward and count our blessings. God has a plan for all of us. If we pray and believe and we are strong we can get through anything. Life is good and prayer and peace are good for the soul.
I remember I had this job a very long time ago and I think I knew it my heart it was not meant to be. I had hardly any training and it did not work out. I was so upset because I wanted it to work but something MUCH better came along and that job was in the rearview mirror. That was a perfect example of a blessing in disguise. Sometimes things do not work out and that is because they are not meant to be. When one door closes another one opens. It is all part of the plan. Hang in there and have faith. Surround yourself with positive people. People that root for YOU! Now onto the next life lesson.
I want to say Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mom’s, Grandma’s, Aunts Step Mom’s and anyone else who is in the role of a mom. It is not an easy job it does not come with instructions. You just have to figure it out. It is the best job on earth and I would not trade it for the world. I am honored to be a Mom. I love being called Mom. Mom’s are very special. I know this one lady for a very long time. She is kind, sweet and always takes time to listen to me. She is a good soul. I missed out on thirty eight Mother’s Days because I lost my Mom at a young age. My mom was going through a very rough time and did not get the right help. Make sure that you and your loved ones are safe and have someone to talk to if they need it. Make sure you do not stop until they get it. Do NOT let anyone turn you away. Show kindness to people and be there for the ones you love. Cherish your friendships and your loved ones. TALK NOT TEXT and learn to understand each other. Pick up the phone and talk to someone and listen to them. You may not agree but that is okay. Remember and appreciate the loved ones in your life. Thank you for reading my blog.

For those of you on here for the first time or the first tine in awhile I want to share something with you. I am very proud of my accomplishments. I have worked hard and I will continue to work hard. I love what i do . It brings me comfort and joy. It has taken me a long time to write my first novel. I re wrote and re wrote changed things, endings character names and all kinds of stuff but in the end I am proud of the outcome. My very first was a children’s book Bella’s Bow Tie Bears. Then a few years later my novel Someday came out. After that was The Kings and Queens of Aberdale High and soon you will be able to read the Patriot’s Daughter. Do not let anyone tell you that you cannot do something. No matter what if you want to do it than you should do it. Be with people that promote YOU! Follow your dreams and become something! Be the BEST YOU! I know it is in you.

I think that is the right order. What do you think? I think that praying is very important and I think we need God more than ever. Maybe God feels that the majority of his people forgot about him. I did not forget I talk to him every day. I hope he is listening. I am sure he is. I hope he is my prayers. I pray for everyone and I believe we all need a help in some way maybe someone to listen to us , maybe just a simple smile from someone to add some kindness to our day. Now what about family. Family is important. Family is the most important . Then there is your job. We need our jobs for put food on the table and roof over our heads. We need all of those things to function. It is funny how everything seems to be connected like we cannot have one without the other. We are all connected in some way either through people or our community. I think it is important to have all of the above. We are strong and we are survivors we will get through this. America needs saving we need God so please do not forget that God is listening. Thank you for reading my blog. Now onto the next life lesson.
