Rose Colored Glasses

My father always told me I’d looked at the world through rose colored glasses. I felt he took me to be foolish. I recently watched a movie and was taken by a character who was quite beautiful yet consistently defended a compliment. Her next statement enlightened me on my growing up resenting words of hurt on my being stuck up or guilty of conceit. It was eloquently revealed her inner thoughts of herself .. how lonely not to be seen for her inner being. The revelation awakened my own self analysis of being. Yes, from my earliest memories I can recall many enchanting sights. The sound of laughter. The look of love, the act of sharing & patience, a sunset or cloud, the scent of Spring in the air as flowers bloom and soft rain touching my skin. The steady water in a stream, birds morning song, the tingle of a snowflake & cries of the city streets. I’ve learned to forgive, my faith has no boundaries.  Ah! Rose colored glasses .. yes I wear them well for I am blessed with the kindness to Gods Blessings & Beauty in this world. The magnificent creatures & wonders which many take for granted. I walk with my heart open & head held up to the sky for many rosey days ahead. A morning prayer of thanks, each day I reflect on this smile with hopes of generations of Rose Colored Glasses. Thank you  Dad for always seeing me …. 

the world is a beautiful place … Amen

Hope you enjoy this video!

My granddaughter Julia is now a senior studying Drama & Performing Arts …

I knew as an infant on my lap she had a passion for music. At 3 months young, her little body kept the beat as we watched Cher in concert. 

I love her as she approached many challenges as a youngster in this world of today… I admire her expectations for a better tomorrow, I’m proud to say she excels academically as well. 

I know she fills her Moms heart with joy & is a phenomenal big sister to three younger siblings…..

Its National Daughters Week ! 

I nominate you Julia as Daughter of the Century! 

You have my Vote ! 

All my Love

Who’s Who

Honestly I am so blessed, family & friends near and far being supportive & caring. Unexpected surprise visits and gifts, I humbly feel embarrassed though I embrace the gestures. 

I lost a best friend to the battle a few years ago, my Mom a decade ago …. Thought I knew it all dealing with cancer, by no means . 

I can’t count the times now reflecting on them. Was I there enough? Did I comfort them as much as I feel the need ? How, Oh how they suffered…. 

I’m genuinely a high spirited happy being. When diagnosed; I upfront told my loved ones & Doctor no chemo for me. Not going on that emotional roller coaster with them, take my best days  leaving with a smile. 

What  a mind change seeing her reaction….. And his. My vision directed deep into the soul. My sister so devastated & despaired, and he so frightened, never before seen, he is my rock who crumbled before me. He’d never admit to it, he’s old school. 

My heart broken to see their pain. They were frightened, I accepted the challenge. I humorously tease her, as I reinforce an unknown strength to aid him. I need them immensely yet I desire to comfort them. It’s working. 

Worst sleepless night I’m alone by choice, in the morning we go to the doctor for my pathology report. I spoke to God all night, ask forgiveness ask for strength, how do I say goodbye? My children, my heart & blood, how sad. 

So pathology report was good, not surprised he dropped off my sister and I, said he couldn’t be there. He was so happy and assured on the news. I know he loves me. 

Visitors….. Many come as normal as possible, some look at me Crying! That’s a bit much, kick in my sense of humor to ease the atmosphere… Hmmmm doesn’t work, abruptly I respond they should leave ..no one is dying here, not today. 

I maintain positivity for all. My spirituality relieves my fear. I do this for me and those around me. Quite a juggling act. 

What matters most is not who’s who …. 

I am

If You Don’t Love Yourself…

At the beach with a friend,topic….
People and their differences.

He asked why are people so different?
(Negatively speaking)
He makes a comment ….if you don’t love yourself how can you love anyone else?
My reply
If you don’t love yourself, who would want to love you…

Holy Trinity…….

This weekend,I spent some quality time with my feline friends;on occasion the subject of relationships surfaced. One woman has a difficult time to commit……….another a few short term relationships,each questioned my lasting love. A few joking remarks….”best way to keep a man is to let him go!” He travels a lot……. “Comprimise is Key!” But all agree on my version of the “Holy Trinity” A young man thinks with the Genital Area While a young woman is wearing her Heart. Middle age, a man totally exercises his Mind; as a the woman experiences the Genitals……. As a man ages. His Heart develops and a woman is finally Mindset. In a relationship, finding a connection in this whirlwind, comes perpetual motion of life………Love Lucky Me………
