Don’t Forget, time falls back One Hour
What is your very favorite holiday? Recount the specific memory or memories that have made that holiday special to you.
My favorite holiday is Christmas. I love the lights, colors, smells, laughter, and most of all the treats everyone makes!
I remember my favorite holidsy like it was yesterday, but to be honest, it was over 11 years ago. The precious child I spent special moments with is now a young man going into the tenth grade. He was the sweetest child and is turning into a wonderful, honest, good kid!
Jonny’s mom and dad asked me to occupy his time while they worked with Santa. We hopped in the car and headed off to see Santa, get hot chocolate, a little shopping and ice skating. Jonny was my little buddy in those days.
We accomplished everything we set out to do and headed home. Few minutes into our drive, the van started acting up. A few minutes later, it went dead. I managed to get to a local convenience store and parked near the front of the lot.
Jonny and I went to make a phone call and get hot chocolate. We headed back to the van to wait for Pop. We cut the heat up and listened to Christmas carols on the radio and the news was following Santa’s sleigh as it crossed over Georgia. Children are adorable! The look of pure amazement on Jonny’s face brought tears to my eyes. He became more fascinated with each newscast. It brought back memories I had forgotten and I will never forget my precious moments spent with my sweet nephew on that cold, Christmas Eve.
You have 15 minutes to address the whole world live (on television or radio — choose your format). What would you say?
I would tell anyone listening to look up and make eye contact with someone as they pass. Your fellow man or woman can’t be so scary you cannot be bothered to look them in the eye. You might find yourself saying hello and making a new friend. It could be someone in need of help and you are the only person around.
I have passed people and said hello; only to receive a lokk that appearded to say, “What is your problem?”, “Why are you speaking to me?”.
Don’t be like that, there is kindness in everyone. Let it shine. Show the world the true you. Let yourself shine!
We do not know what the next minute will bring. Do not waste it! Enjoy life and maybe influence someone else with a simple hello and some eye contact. Be positive! God loves us all, no matter what!
What was the last thing you searched for online? Why were you looking for it? The last thing I recall searching for online, is “How to repair holes in the wall of the heart.”
My husband, Barry, is very sick at this time. He is about to have to undergo another surgical procedure to repair his heart. The damage was caused by the last surgery! I wanted to learn as much about the condition and procedure as I could. Doctors never tell you eveything.
At that time he was discovered to have endocarditis, an abcess, as well as the mechanical heart valve in place, was dehisting. After the surgery, we were told it was a mercy surgery to save his life.
Not only was the valve coming loose, it was making a mess of his heart inside. They had to do a graft to be able to replace the valve doing the damage. After the surgery, it was discovered that the valve was already leaking where the graft was not holding.
I have been unable and too tired to blog, but I hope to getnat least one post in a week for a while. On top of my sweeties issues,; I have been getting myself to radiation therapy daily, to complete my breast cancer treatment. I’m over half way complete! Cannot wait to have ir behind me!
For now, it is one day at a time. One doctor at a time. Barry and I are surviving, we will be ok. I find myself turning Google for tons of information these days. As a nurse, I understand a lot, but so much has changed since I last did hands on patient care. To be honest, it feels like a thing of the past. Nurse’s do almost nothing when it comes to hands on care these says.
Through God’s will, Barry will have the strength to pull through this. Send a little prayer out for us, even if you do not believe in it! Prayer is a powerful thing!
If you could pause real life and spend some time living with a family If anywhere in the world, where would you go?
New Mexico Beach, Florida
Not only does it sound like the perfect vacation spot for people my age, but it is close to home and we can drive. I like places close enough to drive. They plan activities through the year; so you never miss a holiday or season. They constantly remind you. It sounds like a little slice of heaven.
We would love to stay with a couple similiar to us. They would have to let our puppy visitbwith us. That understands our limitations and are willing to slow life down for a bit. I just want to sit on the beach and listen to crashing waves. Of course, a bathroom closeby would need to be handy. We want time alone to be us. Hopefully, there is a church closeby to enjoy services while we are visiting,
Barry and I have been unable to vacation for quite some time. He is busy planning our Christmas get away. I can’t wait. We might stay forever. Getting out and away from home sounds like amn impossibility at the moment, but we can make it happen. Take one day at a time and we will get there. Christmas at the beach. Do I pack a tree?
What’s your biggest regret? How would your life have been different if you’d made another decision?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us TURNING POINT.
If I had to choose my biggest regret would be my first marriage. When we met, I was head-over-hills in love and could not see a future as anything other than his wife.
I gave up going away to college to stay close to home and be near the man that had swept me off my feet. I even ignored my family to put him ahead of everything else. I left my younger sister and father out in the cold to focus on being a girlfriend and eventually his wife. I should have been around for the two of them, when mom packed up and took off.I missed that time with both of them. Time I can never get back
On the other hand, I was there for my older sister to help when she had the babies. I started a career I love. I am the woman I am toiday, because of the experiences I went through with my ex-husband. I love doing what I do today, because of him. Most importantly, I wouldn’t have been in the area to meet Barry after the divorce. In a sense, my ex lead me to my soul-mate.
I don’t think it is supposed to work that way. Regrets can be good things. They can lead you to a future you were not expecting or they can fill you with longing to change things that are no longer possibke to change.
In my book, don’t look back. Always keep your eyes forward and enjoy your life, You cannot change the past, why regret it?
