I am glad women are speaking out about their babies that are stillborn, babies that do not make it to full term and babies who live for short periods but never make it home from the Hospitals. My mother was pregnant when I was young, apparently my little sister was stillborn. I know she named her Wendy, we waited for a baby that never came home. I remember little bags being sent from our mom with candy and gum in them to us. Then she came home with no baby. we knew she went in to have one. The only thing really said was that Wendy went to heaven. That was it and then Life went on because we didn’t or were not allowed to question about it. There was not even a service. I have no clue what happened to the baby. I called them “silent babies” to myself later on.
Later, I had my son, who only lived two days. I was in great pain in my heart but never spoke much about it after the service I did have for him. I actually never even mentioned him until a few short years ago. I do not even know why other than it was just so painful. even the babies later on that I never carried past three months trying to have my youngest daughter were ever spoken of. Now, women are talking about it and I am glad. These were our babies. They have a place in our hearts and in this World to be remembered. Another good in freaky 2020.
I was on the couch the other night just feeling sorry for myself. Yes, i do that. Then I thought of all of the things I am blessed with. I am blessed with so many things and I realized if I spend more time thinking of all of the good in my life, I sure will have less time for self pity. It is life and my mind overthinks every little thing. BUT I am blessed to have a sound mind that can over think so there is another blessing… I am blessed to be able to laugh, love, be happy. I am blessed to be able to take a walk and to do so many things. i am blessed with the ability to create Art and write… So today I just wanted to share that! have a great day/evening where ever you are my friends!
It was cold here. ouch. we got a tash of snow in some areas but gone this a.m. of course. I grew up in the North so I was always used to the cold but then it snowed so we always played in the snow. Here, we just have the cold. No fun with it. haha. But, it is life in the South. The temps are always like the lottery. you never know what you are going to get. well, have a great day/evening!
WOW! This has been one odd and strange, mind bending year. That I know. I do not think I have ever remembered a year like this one. We have had a horror movie year. Like I wonder how many scary movies can be written from this year? I cannot think of many Romance but I guess you could pack in a few of those and some Action movies. I know for me, so far, it has been like crazy! Sad, happy, good times, bad and most of those or all of them you get in any year but this one? yeah. My mind has been on a roller coaster on this one! Seriously! I even have become friends with neighbors I never imagined would ever speak. wow! Well have a great day/night fellow bloggers!
I do not live in a million plus Subdivision. It is decent and most of us keep everything pretty nice. But some neighbors look like their house should be on Hoarders which is their choice. i sure don’t care. But guess who gets letters? me. Of course. Let me see. lol. Um, my grass is not green enough. There should be no advertising on the WORK truck that shows our phone number. That would be great except 15 other Vehicles have it. The fence in the back can be seen from the road as can many other houses. The mailbox looks a bit uneven. Gotta love them and the list goes on. However, my neighbor who owns Lucifer or AKA crazy boy, (the Chihuahua) came over to ask about the letters and said she had complaints about him. Because he barks. yeah. he is a dog. They do that. lol. Life with an HOA. Gotta love it! Oh. And no. NOT my house! I wish!
Only those who have it, get it. But it can drive us crazy if we try and over think what goes on with this way of Life. I am learning daily as I go how to try and calm it, forget what is so bothering me and people that emotionally drain me for their whatever. I am trying hard to help those in pain and hurt while also not letting those who try and hurt me get the best of me. So, I am learning as I go because for so long I didn’t even know what it was. Then when I did, No clue how to work it.
I needed to get back to a clearer thinking and mindset so along with my daily Prayer and Meditation time, I started Yoga again and I also did Tai Chi today which I have missed doing very much! I love the relaxation of Tai Chi in helping me to relax my everything. It relaxes me in a different way. I use Yoga more for exercise and yes, some relaxing. I use Tai Chi for a different form and level of relaxing as well as yes, exercise. Confused yet? I hope not. They all just seem to counter balance each other.
I see so many photos of yoga outside and I know many do it outside but I do it in my home. I am back at it now and I needed it. I still have that love/hate relationship with downward dog. Maybe I always will but it was so good et back to it. I hope all of you are well and doing great as we journey along. If you need a way to build strength and yet also to relax, try some yoga!
Good grief! This has been one bad to the bone year. I hope and pray 2021 is so much better. I feel like all of us or most of us have been sucker punched. over and over and over. Slap! take that 2020.
Just try one. It is okay. They help lift you up. they are legal. Not bad at all. That is what started my journey to battle Nicotine. I would do it off and on because many months between everything, I was very Physically active. Rapelling, hiking, climbing, etc. But then I just kept doing it one day. I have never been a normal type smoker. I hate the smell. never do it indoors or in a car or anything like that but now I am on the road again, to stopping. It is the Psychological battle right now, beat the Physical but it can be tough. So, trying hard, lot’s of praying and more exercise than usual. Here I go. lol.
