Dear Dad

Dad,

 I never realized how big of a void there would be in my life without you in it.

You always tried to find the good in everyone and every situation.

You may be gone but you will never be forgotten because you will always be in my heart.

I placed flowers on your grave for fathers day but somehow that never seems like enough.

Father’s Day is like one of the toughest holidays for me to get through. It has been 2 years and 9 1/2 months since you passed away and I really do not know where the time has gone.

Happy Father’s Day I love you!

 

Grandkids & shots

Our youngest grandson Adrian recently turned a year old.

Our daughter took him in for his shots. Later the next week he broke out with the measles rash from the MMR shot.

This started on the trunk of his body and quickly spread. There were so many bumps there was no way to count them all.

His pediatrician said she had only ever seen one reaction and it was 6 -years ago and nowhere near as bad as he was.

We are still waiting for his bumps to completely go away so I can do his pictures.

They have started to fade on his body but he still has some on his face.

Children need their shots but always be aware of the possible side effects.

Life Lesson # 3 – Two faced people

A two faced person could be a friend or a family member.

Anyone who talks to you behind someone else’s back and befriends that person at the same time will do the same thing to you behind your back.

They thrive on creating friction between people. Every day they have to think of something bad to talk about to someone else because this is what gets their adrenaline pumping.

Two faced people can not be trusted because all the do is make up lies at the expense of others just to get attention. Your life has to be pretty boring to want to hurt others so badly you would do this.

No one needs people like this in their life the drama is not worth it.

Life Lesson # 2 – good deeds

People who enjoy doing good deeds do this out of the goodness of their heart and never say a word about it. It is second nature to them because it is part of who they are and they are not looking for praise from anyone.

People who do good deeds for others and tell other people about it are doing it for self-gratification. They need everyone to know all the good things they have done they are looking for praise.

You should never brag or boast when you do something nice for someone if you do then you are doing it for all the wrong reasons.

The inspiration of a grandmother

My grandmother taught me so much in her lifetime many lessons I will never forget.

We called her Mama Dot and she taught me to appreciate the little things in life, be grateful for what you have and never be materialistic.

She taught me how to enjoy working in your yard and making it beautiful. Then you can stand back and look at what you created.

I have several things in my yard that came from hers. Now I know the reason she always shared things from her yard was so she could always be remembered. 

She loved listening to the birds sing and feeding them. I think that is one reason I love doing this.

She spoke from the heart and was never fake she did not believe in sugar coating anything. I guess that is where I get the guts to voice my opinions and speak from the heart.

Today so many people sugar coat everything they say and they are just so fake.

Mama Dot was very special to me and I knew I could always count on her whenever I needed some advice, a hug, or just a friend. I knew I could count on her inspirational words of wisdom.

Her unconditional love for me meant it was a real love with no strings attached her love was genuine.

 

 

 

Liars

We have two close family members that fall into the pathological lying category.

I went my whole life without realizing the older one was a liar. Funny the day you realize someone has been a liar your entire life it changes everything about the past.

Now I am wondering if the older one taught the middle-aged one how to lie. It is quite interesting when you think about it. What are the odds for there to be two in the same family in such close relation that are both pathological liars?

You have to love it when the pathological liar never admits they are wrong and NEVER says I am sorry.  Instead, they just makeup lies about you and change the subject of the conversation. I guess it makes them feel better about themselves and their low self-esteem.

When you have two doing this together it is like a lethal weapon to everyone around them. Some of us are wise to what is going on others just play along and some chose to ignore the whole thing and pretend it will just go away.

It is always better to stay far away from these type people and have no contact at all with them because nothing good ever comes of their lies.
