Daily prompt/ celebrate good times

http:// http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/09/25/daily-prompt-celebration/

I may not be quiet on topic of following the description of” show us good times, celebrating good news.” Because, when I read the topic my mind went to a song and the story of three children dancing to the song Celebration by Kool and the Gang.

There were three of us. Me, Rhonda, and Trav. We were being raised by single mothers trying very hard to keep food in our bellies and our Christmas trees full of presents.
We had a lot of time together our mothers are best friends. When we were kids we would get on our bikes and go to the store and come out with a bag of candy a piece all for 25 cents! Our bikes took us everywhere.  Even places we dreamed up. We all named our bikes. These bikes were Christmas gifts from Santa! Trav and I knew our mom’s were Santa. Poor Rhonda,the baby of us three, believed forever in Santa. Until some idiot blew it. But, that’s a story for another day. We also created secret hideouts all the time. One was called bird haven, if I recall correctly.  We were as close as we could be. Waking up each day going on new adventures and worrying only about how we were going to get our next quarter for the trip to the corner market.  The three marketeers we were indeed!
So, when that wonderful song came out we would dance with unabandedness to it while a disco light shined.  Yes, we three were the king and queens of our world! I have no doubt to this day if I needed them or they needed me we each would try our hardest to be there.
So, when I saw the daily prompt this song and many years of fun memories flooded back to me. I have had much to celebrate in my life like my three beautiful sons and now a grandbaby. But, today for this moment I went with a time when life was simpler for me and I had two bffs, a brother and sister, cousins, whatever we called one another when asked. Thanks for the travel back in time. It’s funny where these daily prompts can take you.

Daily prompt/ standstill

wpid-IMG_20130911_200603.jpgIt’s rather early but I am going to give this the good old college try anyway. It was around 5am as usual my house is quiet. This has been this way since June when I moved into my first home alone. After leaving mom’s nest at 15 then straight to a house with a husband that soon was filled with babies. Well, 25 years of the hussle and bussle of those mornings motherhood brand this morning was quiet again.
I’ve taken time to adjust to single life. Gotten over the empty nest syndrome. Then, 3 weeks ago my first grandbaby arrived!  A precious little girl! After 3 sons wow she is awesome!  So, as a new grandma my morning tweak would be to have her with me. As well as having my son’s, their spouses, my mom and sister here with. Two of my son’s life 2,500 miles away. So does my sister. Heck I would even tolerate the ex just to have us all together!
On the other side of the spectrum my mommy is here visiting. After not seeing her for 14 months, I would like each day she is here to stand still! I’m cherishing every second with her.
So,there is my take on time freezing. The jest of it all love, peace, happiness, and family!

Kindness

One word or just a smile.
A stranger or someone from your past.
Just a kind word or jester.
Maybe anonymously give to a charity.
Happiness comes from within.
When true happiness is achieved you radiate it from your spirit.
Its contagious happiness you know?
And what a great gift.
So easy to give.
What goes around comes around.

The Other Side – Be happy with your lot before you go looking over fences

Best You Project

Is the Grass always greener? Very rarely my friends, very rarely … so water your own grass and look after it because if you don’t one day while you’re busy peering over the neighbours fence your own grass will be wasting away beyond repair.

Inspired by a wonderful article in the Huffington Post, I started thinking about the world we live in today and how messed up things really have become. We live in a time where so many people constantly look over the fence with envy despite having a world of amazing things right in front of them if they just opened their eyes to see just how lucky they are. Where people are EXPECTING great things … without applying themselves and EARNING them.

Think about this – we all have so many incredible things in our lives that 50, 40, 30 … even 20 years ago people…
