    I need to spend more time with my elderly neighbors; some of them are very lonely and fragile, and I notice when I walk in the neighborhood that their age is "catching up with them."  Stopping by more often, checking on them directly or by phone, or bringing things by to brighten their day is what I'm thinking about doing, and I've started already!

    Hello from a Gold Star Mom whose son passed away as a result of injuries received while serving our country.

     

    My New Years Resolution is to remember and be thankful each and every day for the sacrifices that not only my son made but the sacrifices that so many other brave men and women made for my freedom.  May 2015 bring joy, happiness, and may we never forget that our freedom was bought with a price.

     

    Always remember this -- "Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you; Jesus Christ and the American soldier.  One died for your soul; the other for your freedom."

    This year, I want to declutter and downsize the type and amount of things I have. Starting with the kitchen. Clear out the old, clean and shine everything and put in healthy life giving meals and snacks. This will yield me a good night's sleep and more energy to exercise and just do the things I want to do with friends and family. Next, go through all the rooms in the house and declutter. REALLY get rid of old papers, books, mags and clothes. I belive I will feel lighter and house work will be quick and easy. I will keep a few precious memorabillia and things that make me smile. I will be picky in my new purchases, assuring that I have less items, but more quality! I look forward to enjoying the journey.  Just do it!!! I also, plan to continue my mornings with God.  Amen

    Every new year is a time to evaluate your life, well-being and promise to make changes. This year is no different. I took an honest look at myself and discovered that I worry so much that it affects my entire life negatively. Only I can change that. And so begins 2015.

    The Dalai Lama states, "There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday,and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe and mostly live." It is now my mantra. I must basically talk back gently to that "little self" that is on my shoulder to have a healthy, positive thought pattern. What I think will exude from me and create a world I wish to be a part of. That world is the here and now and I will make it a positive one.

    To stand stronger this year and have more respect for myself. I love helping my friends and family but there are some that are always taking from me and I just let it happen over and over and I can't do that anymore. I'm afraid it will change me into someone I don't like so I have to be able to stand strong and take care of my self and my household and learn how to shake the No tree and teach some that they have to help them selves. I'll make them stronger people too in the long run.

    Going on my 10th year of Paying it forward and helping those in need, 365 days a year.

    You too can help by just smiling at everyone you come in contact with: i.e. Grocery store cashier, gardener, Pharmacy, Walmart Greeter.  By doing so you will spread that smile far and wide all day, everyday.

    Well, I've made a start! I've been on three cruises, flown in an airplane for the first time, and I am seventy. I have a few computer skills, hard-earned, I am working on being less dependent, physically, emotionally and every other way on my wonderful children. It is time I got over my fear of being unable to cope on my own and remember the strong young woman I once was

    During the 12 years I cared for my husband after a severe stroke, we became more and more withdrawn and isolated. My own personal life came to a screetching halt. My personality changed after he died. I became fearful and uncertain about every decision. I finally gave up my car and my apartment and moved in with my daughter. Here, I stay in my room, feeling like an intruder on her family, even though no one in her family has made me feel that way. I read and lose my self in my books to cope. I am tired of escapism and ready to live again. Getting lost in the airport will not discourage me. I am up, up, and away from now on!  And darn that walker! I am leaving it home next time.

    Since God said to cast your cares upon Him, I'm going to

    take all the stress and toss it away off my shoulders,

    and just follow Jesus my BBF, who knows all things.

    I won't Fear anymore, knowing He Loves me because He

    is my Father, and He would and has already done everything

    for me with His Salvation, Grace and Mercy and Love, above all.

    Everyone out there who is sick of being stressed out by the world,

    just go to Jesus, the Son of God who Loves to Love you. He's

    the Only Way.  Just ask Him if He's there, to show you, and He will....†

    The past two years was about scary diagnoses, hospitalizations, and spiraling emotions. Reaching a healthier plateau in January, I discovered that temporarily I had lost myself in the process of good news/bad news. I confess -- I liked that old girl except now I felt like an old girl. I was motivated to dust myself off and rediscover that person. I promised to fall in love again – with myself.

    Without wasting time, I made lists of favorite things such as word: joy; dessert: coffee ice cream... I asked friends for one (positive) word that might describe me. I felt invigorated when I heard loyal, funny, creative... I set out to re-examine everything from my values to the shade of lipstick I wear. How am I doing? Recently, my son said, “Mom, you sound like your old self.”

    Yesterday my close friend,Marcia had full knee surgery. A week ago,I told her&hubby Dave I would like to come&sit with him in the waiting room,keep him company until Marcia was in her private room,they profusely thanked me. I knew what the routine would be because 11 yrs ago, I had partial knee surgery. In my situation,my co-workers took care of me {I used to work in a hosptial}.

    Marcia&Dave&their sons are my 'extended family members' since my siblings live out of town. The past couple of yrs, Marcia&Dave have done so much for me,this is my way of giving back. Sue
