Coffee, I love you

Wake up so sluggish, drag myself outta bed all out of sorts...wrap my lips around the rim of my coffee cup full of magic..and ta dah!  Cloud is lifted, "lids" go up and hello morning.  Coffee, I love you!  I don't understand it, yes, I'm quite sure it's an addiction, but everything I read seems to be in favor of it and I've not heard of any intervention programs or 12 steps so I'm good.

It's Saturday!!  Parents of Upward Basketball kids..enjoy!!!  My granddaughter is 3rd grade..plays at 2pm. I like that.  Hubby doesn't..breaks up his day.  That's life in the slow lane dahlink!  Have a great day y'all!!

Time is goin...

Today is my youngest daughter's 34th Birthday.  Time is goin..

In reflecting back it's mind boggling how fast 34 years went by.  I was 36 when I had that went pretty doggone fast, too.  I'm 70 now and realizing I've had 70 birthdays, 70 summers, 70 Christmas's, all of it just a blur now.  Two different before Jesus, one after when I met Him at age 32.  I've experienced evil, good, and all in between.  I've sinned, and been forgiven countless times...but God has never said "enough, I'm done with you, Flo".  No, He has always been faithful.  He was there in the darkness of abuse as a child, He was there in all my marriages (4 in all).  He's been there thru thick and thin (yeah, I used to be thin..haha). 

If you do not know Jesus as your Savior and friend...time is goin...don't let death catch you without Him.

Happy New Year

2013.  Still sounds like a Futuristic year, made up in a sci fi movie or something, but here it is.  Happy New Year to you all.  I hope you plan to leave your anger, resentment, bitterness, unforgiveness and pride in 2012 and not carry it into 2013.  Clean slate.  Resolve those things that keep you bound, that rob you of family time because of them.  If there is any way you can repair and have peace again with family or friends you've withdrawn your love from, do it.  Life is short.

I know some of my resolutions should be excercise more.  And eat less.  The usual empty promises you make for yourself.  I'm going to try.  Not because it's a new year, but because I want to feel good, have energy and wear my clothes.  I will NOT buy a moo moo in 2013!!

My husband retired Dec 31.  He is at work today on January 2nd as a temp.  3 months of that, then he'll be home.  There will be adjustments, but there will be joy also.  A major step for him.  I charted those waters for him in 2004.  He'll adjust..we'll adjust..I'll adjust.  Happy New Year friends.

Til next time.   Flo
