When I die   Leave a comment

If I should leave this world any time soon, I want those that I love, to know I love them.
without writing them each a letter, I feel I have no way to let them know how I feel about them, should I leave this world unexpectedly.
No I am not planning on dying.
But we are all owed a death and I know that I am not above that exception.

I have a letter written.
It is locked away and no one has seen it.
The odd thing is, no one will because only I know the password to retrieve it.

So let me say here, If I die today, I love my children and husband very much.
I adore and love so much, and would give my life for any one of my grandchildren.
I love my siblings dearly and the very few friends I have, already know that I love them.

I cherish life.
I sometimes am bored with it, but that is my own fault and the limitations I put on myself.

When I die, I hope God will have his arms wide open and welcome me into Heaven where I know my mother and all those who have died before me, are.

maybe to some of you this is a morbid subject.

But to me it isn’t.
I am not afraid to die.
My only regret would be is to not be able to see my grandchildren grow up and marry and have children of their own.

I use to think I would live to be 100

And maybe I will.
Who knows?
only God has that answer.

still it is something to think about…….

misty haze   Leave a comment


the beautiful misty haze of an early morning dawn.
it’s tranquil and gentle and amazingly kind

it reminds me of our mornings on the lake when we were in Tennessee.
The peacefulness, the complete beauty of the sun rising as the haze floats off the water.

there is so much beauty in our world.
I wish people would stop and see it more often than they do.

American dreams dying at sea   Leave a comment

our world is going to hell in a hand basket.
it is so incredibly sad how people have to kill each other just for the sport of it.
Those poor Americans sailing around the world to be murdered by those Pirates in the high seas.

The abuse and constant protesting going on in the middle east.

isn’t the earth quakes and hurricanes enough to get people to realize that life is so very precious?

Makes me ache to think people are so selfish and heartless.

My husband said that the American Sailors  should have known better than to be out there sailing alone.
Yes maybe they should have, and if they had another chance I am betting they would have steered clear of those pirated waters.
that hindsight thing is amazing.

but it is a very sad day when you can’t do something you love, and live life wanting to enjoy your retirement in the way you see fit.

Unfortunately it ended badly for them.
I only hope other people will use this as an example and not go where they shouldn’t.

Again Lord help us here down on earth.
We sure do need the help!

the attraction   Leave a comment

water attracts me.
not exactly sure why.
But mountains attract me too

I’ve always lived by water.
I lived right on the Iowa River when I was a child.
I live by a creek in our little town now and have for years.

I love going to the beach and I love the mountains and their majestic beauty.

maybe the attraction is so intense because I live in a flat state.
There are no mountains or big water holes.
yes there are a few man-made lakes and of course we have rivers but they just don’t bring me the pleasure that the ocean does.

maybe it is because I associate the mountains, big lakes, water falls and oceans as a vacation place


Lord knows I always have a vacation in mind!

where does the time go?   Leave a comment

I can’t believe I actually had three days away from work!
Where does the time go?
how is it possible that the three days are over with already?
So sad.

Also my sister’s son is 15 today!
how is that possible?
It is just amazing when I think about it.
It seems like he should only be 10 or so…..

My son will be 30 on Friday!
I can easily remember when I turned thirty.
I even remember someone saying “Welcome to your thirties!”
it seems almost like yesterday.

I know they say the older you are the faster the time goes, and it is so true.
It needs to slow down some though because I have a lot of life I want to live yet!!!!

6 weeks   Leave a comment

six weeks from today this will be my view when we reach Florida.
I have to say I can’t wait.
I know I keep talking about it and almost bragging about it, but I am so looking forward to the vacation I can’t even describe it.
The worst thing will be not seeing my grandchildren for a week.

FREE!!!!!   Leave a comment

the sun is shining, and it will be a beautiful day!!!!
I have to work today and then I am off until Tuesday!
What a great feeling that is!!!

Usually I have to come in and do the building check to make sure the school is locked and secure, but I got someone else to do that for me this weekend just so I can enjoy some time away from here.

I haven’t had a day away from here in weeks.
So I am really looking forward to it!!!!

Yes I have to say it is a sun filled day!!!!
