In the past, I would always dismiss the day of Sunday. To me, it was little more than the day before the work week or the day to do household chores. Shame on me! Sunday is a great day! It starts with S, like the word super, smile, and seashore! And it ends in a Y, like all the other days including the fabulous Friday.
Why do so many of us abuse our poor Sunday this way? Every day, regardless of the day of the week, should be wonderful! Or at least as wonderful as Karma will allow. 😉
Sunday’s should be for sleeping in late, making breakfast with your family and finding an adventure somewhere in nature. Or going to church with your family and maybe a lunch, meeting up with family members for a weekly dinner. Grabbing some friends for an unplanned road trip. Sunday = Funday for a reason!! 🙂
Sundays are so much more than the day before the workweek. They are a day of holiness. A day to pause, reflect and chill!!! But now, they are starting to blend into all the other days. Years ago, most stores/businesses were not open at all on Sundays. Can you even imagine? I can, it was actually awesome. Do not let your Sunday’s become unspecial. They are meant to be the Funday, week starters for a reason!!!
Maybe your Sunday’s are for working and all things not fun. Well, I cannot offer a solution but I can tell you to look at the good the day can bring you and those around you. Remember this:
Take some time on this Sunday and every day to slow down and see the beauty around you. Slowing down and getting into nature can do wonders for your stress and health. Try something new. Go for a hike. Take pictures of flowers, sunsets, and birds. Go find a corn maze and get lost like when you were a kid. Find a sunflower field. Go to a baseball game. Go outside and revel in the beauty this Sunday and every day offers you!!
Welcome to the Weekend! Sorry if you have to work. Remember to make some time for yourself if possible!!
I have always found that weekends are for working on your house, hanging out with friends, getting your kids to and fro and many other “very busy” things. Even though we should chill, most times we do not! Here are some songs for the weekend to help you through your crazy business.
I have been a little lazy lately with my blog. I apologize to all of you. But life has been a whirlwind since last Wednesday. More than likely, my blog will be this way for a few weeks. When you are a caregiver for someone who has had surgery blogging, as well as thinking, are out the door. LOL. I will do better later when I get to sleep. 🙂
Today, I have no words but some beautiful pictures I have taken in my travels. I hope they brighten your Thursday!!!
Do you ever sit back and think about just how crazy life can be? There are so many aspects to life and because we are crazy humans, I think it is even worse. 🤪
I have recently been driving more than normal and visiting somewhere new. And boy have I seen some crazy things and people.
I do not know if I am getting old or just losing touch with the craziness but this world just seems to be going bonkers. In the words of my man Jimmy Buffett “We need more fruitcakes in this world and less bakers.” But I don’t want the crazy fruitcakes. 😂
The other day I was almost run off the highway by a car doing over 100 mph in a 55 mph. Yesterday, a woman beside me was driving with her left knee and texting in front of the steering wheel going 70 mph.
Needless to say, I needed some good things to happen to me.
Recently, I watched a Medi-Vac helicopter land and take off. Overheard the song of a few babies born. Encountered employees that feel no job is beneath them because patients are number 1. I was surrounded by words of love and encouragement. It is funny how life can change from minute to minute.
I am just glad for these refreshing things. The news poisons our minds with negativity and who needs more of that, not this chick!!!
I urge all of you to look for the non-craziness. The calm and happy things where you can find them. And share them around please!!! We humans need to be happier, kinder and more accepting of each other.
So yesterday my other half, my sunshine had major neck surgery. Today, I am thankful that things have gone well and I am dedicating my page to her.
Do you have a person, lobster, other-half, spouse, etc…? If they are your heart, then you know where I have been for the last few days. Worry, worry, worry, cannot take away the pain…But I can be there. I have been both the patient and the caretaker, and I think it is easier to be the patient, at least mentally!
My other half is Jackie. She is pretty awesome. We have been together for 15 years and married for almost two. We do not talk much about ourselves because our lifestyle can make people uncomfortable. However, in our opinions, love is love. It does not have a color, gender or name. It is just love.
Today is about love. However, you may see it. Embrace it, hold on to it tight and always remember what it feels like to both be loved and to love!!
I received a handmade craft with this quote on it from Jackie a few Christmas’ ago . I think this is the best gift I have ever received and is her truth. I hope you enjoy it!!
