Daily post/treat

It is Halloween again and I am sitting at my blog awaiting my trick or treater’s. My bowl is huge filled with treats like love for the little orphaned child that may stop by. I have some happiness for the broken abused woman that just may knock at my blogs door. You may even know her? Compassion I have a lot of that in my bowl. I know the elderly man that lives alone in blog # 3, the one that served in the war? Haven’t you seen him walking alone? I have a bit of encouragement for that college student that is far from home and is frazzled from work and school.
The truth is me and my blog have so many treats in our bowl you are sure to get the one the tastes perfectly when you bite into it. You shall be full after knocking on my blog’s door this Halloween.


Daily post/seven words

I looked at today’s topic idea and thought it would be easy to choose seven universal words to use that everyone would know and understand. Well, in the state that our world is in there are many I would like to use that all nationalities could understand as well as put them to use! Such as peace! But, that is only a hope of mine as well as many others. Sadly, not enough people get the word peace much less hope for it. However, I’m going to attempt to choose seven words all human beings would comprehend  and use for communication.

Ok, yes, peace would be one of them. I dream of a world of peace. Wow, how wonderful life would be! Another word I will choose is happiness. Again, I would want everyone to use it verbally and practice it in their lives. How splendid each day would be if we all felt happiness?  Kindness ofcorse is my next choice.  If our children were taught more kindness even, topics like bullying and suicide wouldn’t be so prevalent in our society.
So, now I have peace, happiness, and kindness as my three of my seven universal words. How beautiful our world would become if we all started t use these words and put them into action? Oh a girl can dream can’t she?

My other four words are compassion, love, forgiveness, and communication. Add them all and just imagine! Now, I’m depressed and done with this topic!


Daily post/sad but true

Well, I have been friends with this person since middle school and he is now dead. I miss him dearly. He always told me how things were. I wore my feelings on my shoulders so, he was extra harsh in his opinions in my eyes. This daily post reminded me of the time he told me how I was REALLY!

It was a normal conversation we were having. We both came from a shady background.  I always considered myself as being an”ethical” drug addict. I am clean and sober now. But, that’s a story for another day. Anyway, to be a drug addict you must do something’s that are not so nice in order to get your next fix. The old saying goes “You got to do one of three things to feed your addiction, wheel, deal, or steal.” Sad but true that is how it is.
Now, that sets you with a brief synopsis on my world in my eyes at the topic of what it takes to be an addict. I proclaimed to my friend this about myself. I felt I was an ethical drug addict! After all, in my blurred vision, I didn’t steal, I didn’t barter or trade goods or services for drugs, so I wasn’t a wheeler. And I didn’t deal. (At that point in my addiction I hadn’t done any of that)
I got my drugs with money or for free. Now, my friend says to me.”SHIT, I HAVE WATCHED YOU TAKE A PERSONS LAST DOLLAR AND THEY GIVE IT TO YOU WILLINGLY AND THANK YOU FOR TAKING IT. LEAVING THEM WITH NOTHING.”(he meant metaphorically)  In other words I was a con! He said I used my charm to get people to do what I wanted. He said I used people! Oh my gosh was I applaud!  He was telling me like it was though. We were in our teens during this conversation and I guess I felt I was really being an addict that had morals and scruples. Wow, I was naive. 
Later on in my addition I did end up doing all three of those things in one form or another. My morals and values were gone!
I’m glad to say my life is finally different and drug free. However,  I have always remembered his words so I recognize that character flaw popping up in my new life.
My friend called it as he saw it. Sad but true it was………


Daily prompt/customer service

I was very pregnant with my first child and my husband made a large paycheck so he said he was going to take me and buy me all new maternity clothes. I was so excited!  We lived payday to payday and this was a real treat.
So, when my husband got off work he had me meet him at our local mall in the most expensive store there. I never dreamed I could shop there. Well, my husband and I are use to people judging us by my husband’s appearance.  He was covered in tattoos.  I do mean a lot of tattoos. So, I was shopping and we noticed we were being followed and nobody asked if they could help us as they did other customers.  I started to cry. This upset my husband and he asked to speak with the management.  Low and behold he was one of the personnel that was following US like we were thieves!  Calmly my husband tells the manager that we have been here for a long time and nobody asked us if we needed help. He explains that he felt we were being judged by his appearance and pulled out a wad of money and simply states I hope you work on commission because you just lost out and I will be reporting this incident to your corporate office. He grabbed my hand and we left. Leaving a dumbfounded manager in our wake.
The next place we went I was treated like a queen. Even know my husband and I are apart now I will never forget his handling of that situation.


Daily prompt/Sorry, I am busy!

When I read this idea the first thing that came to mind is when my kids were really young and tried to tell me something or show me something they could do.
There were countless times that one or all wanted my attention and even if I patiently waited for them to show or tell me my mind was on other things. Dishes, laundry, dinner, or life’s many drama’s. I wished I completely focused on what they were doing. Dozens of skits or plays were acted out just for me. If only I could remember them now.
I am a grandma now and I intend on paying close attention to everything my grandchildren do or ask of me and for me. Dishes, laundry, and anything else can wait. I plan on living in the here and now with them.


Daily prompt/super sensitive

If I could decrease a sense it would be taste for sure. I’m over weight and suffer from mental and physical problems because of it. Maybe, if food didn’t taste so good I would eat less and loose some weight.
I would increase my sight! My vision is so poor I would love to read more, drive better, and really see the world in a different light.


Daily prompt/2100


I have often wondered about this myself. How would my kin folk of the future talk? Over the years some amazing words came out as slang from our youth of that era. Several examples are: groovy, tubular, awesome, dope, not to mention fine and hot for example taking on a whole new meaning!
I will be 52 and my first grandbaby will be 8. I am going to try and picture her and the slang she may use. Hey, I am making it up as I go! Isn’t that’s how it’s done anyway?
Nana, I am in the 2nd grade now and all the other middle-lower schooler’s get to ride their telechoppers to school! I am crabnapped! Shelisamay told Ryanair that I had moochos too! Life is so pandonterously females it sucks!
Well, why don’t u take the camhoover to school and you will be smazzled by all the grades? And, you don’t have moochos you were given the multpkex shot in your eye for that! So, tell shelisamay to ganook or your nana is going to badingle her nose!
Oh, greenback nana you cask like the best ever!

Who knows what slang will be used but there is my comic relief!
