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!

 

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 wind

Every since the beginning of March, we have had a big problem with the wind.

Normally you can count on March being windy but then it goes away.

It seems like every day for the last few months for sure it has been super windy and whipping everyone and everything around. It dries out the plants faster than normal.

It means I have to water every day. The overcast days make you think it is going to rain and then all you get is wind.

It is a good thing we have our own water well at this rate of using water.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
