    New Year, New Delete ~ My Opinion

    Every year you see the phrase, ‘New year, new me’! With social media it is now common to see, ‘New year, time to clean up friends list’! Then BOOM…. delete, delete, delete. Back in the day we had real friends. We hung out with them. We had fights, made up, and life went on. Or we had fights, the friendship ended and our hearts broke because we had a human physical connection that was now gone. Today, we hit UNFRIEND, move on to the next post and no tears shed. We are human heartless robots. I have been unfriended over the years by a few people that I thought were…

    No Resolutions ~ My Opinion

    The New Year is right around the corner! People will be celebrating, welcoming in the new year and making the annual resolutions. New year, new you! Building up the anticipation of conquering the resolutions and not crashing after week three. It’s all very exciting!  It’s all very exiting until you miss the gym two days in a row and you call it quits. Why did you think this year would be any different? What made you think that you would stick to the resolutions now when you failed the last ten years? Stupid resolutions anyway!  You are not a quitter. You are not a failure. You are a warrior! But…

    Merry Spiritual Christmas ~ My Opinion

    Santa Claus is coming to town! The excitement is in the air. Kids will be staying up looking for reindeer! It is such a fun, magical, and happy time of the year. But, it should also be spiritual. We do have Santa, Rudolf, and Frosty, but do you have Jesus? Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ. Who was born with animals in a manger. Born to the Virgin Mary and Joseph. In Bethlehem. The star, the three wise men, and an Angel. Remember this story? Christmas is when our Savior came to save us from ourselves. All of the sins we commit and life’s temptations we fall…

    Rude Ass People – My Opinion

    ***Warning: foul language***Oh. My. Gawd! What is the matter with people? I know we have had plain mean ass people before we were even a country, but good grief! With social media it just really shines so bright! Why on earth do people feel the need to respond to a post as just a total ASS****! I don’t get it. Why do people have to be so mean to others and belittle them? A post about Rudolf can turn into a presidential debate for God sakes and calling names! It’s absolutely ridiculous! People that feel the need to be mean towards others such as calling names, being critical, being belittling,…

    Lacking Christmas Spirit? – My Opinion

    Is your Christmas spirit lacking or non existent this year? Are past memories holding you down? Is the loss of loved ones keeping you from enjoying the season? Are you feeling alone during a family holiday? Are you just not feeling the Christmas magic?  The holidays can be a very difficult time for many. Commercials and movies make it a time of love and laughter and put an added stress of what you are not feeling. It can be very overwhelming when it’s everywhere for about two months.  I hope you use this time to reflect on what it is that brings you down at this time of year and…

    Politics and Hate – My Opinion

    Politics! Good grief! I am so sick of this. I think many Americans are. The news, the tweets, the memes, and the current election. What gets to me most is how rude, mean, aggressive, hypocritical, and just plain jerky people can be! Why be that way? There are people strongly supporting the president who consider themselves ‘conservatives’ and this president is anything but conservative. And conservatives state they are strong Christians yet they blast and smear those who do not agree with them. THAT is not proper Christian behavior. I’m not saying it is everyone and I try not to group all as one.  I have seen many that have been…

    Disobedient Kids – My Opinion

    You laugh when your child screams in the store, not out of embarrassment but because you find it funny. You constantly repeat the name of the child to make them stop but even with you constantly repeating the name the child continues and now we have to listen to you too! Your child takes others toys and you feel they should share and not make your child cry. Your child throws a tantrum and you give in so your child is not hurt or upset. Control your child!  Whether it’s your child, a grandchild, niece, nephew, or what have you. These kids are running a muck and we are so…

    The Moment – My Opinion

    Every moment counts! Our lives are based on each moment. They all have brought you to where you are now and they will continue to carry you on for the rest of your life. You will have good moments and bad. Appreciate them all.  It’s crazy how one moment of time can completely change your course of life. You can be happy and celebrating a special occasion only to instantly have terrible news arrive that totally changes your life forever with deep pain. Or you can be in a state of despair and feeling there is no end to hardship or grief when suddenly great news has been delivered that…

    The Party Dilemma – My Opinion

    Why has it become so difficult with inviting and accepting invitations? It seems that in the last few years it has come up in many conversations and so much is being put into this, and not in a good way. I have heard many forms of complaints on invitations. I have experienced problems with invitations and cancellations. I have seen Facebook memes about invitations. It seems that so many people are upset with each other about being invited to or not showing up to an invite.  “Why should I invite them if they never show up?”  “They never invite me so why should I invite them?”  “They will get mad…

    Disney and Life – My Opinion

              Recently, my husband put the Disney Plus streaming on our television. I have always loved Cinderella. It is my favorite Disney movie that involves a princess and romantic love story. I have the original book from when I was a kid and it remains my favorite today. I will say Beauty and the Beast is a very close second.             Anyway, I went on a little binge and watched the movies from the vault. I really did not realize how old these movies are. They remain in many hearts and are timeless classics. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs started the princess series in 1937. Then Pinocchio and many…
