12-01-14-My Morning Thoughts:

12-01-14-My Morning Thoughts: I was just thinking (don’t laugh) about how much we tend to forget about our life over the years. I mean every once in a while a thought pops in your brain that you totally forgot…and…its back! Why did it come back…I don’t know. Did something you were doing bring back a recollection…I don’t know…the funny thing is a lot of these past memories either are better than I remember them or worse than I remember them depending on the incident. I know that some of the good things I’ve done in my life aren’t as good as I think they are now…and of course some of the bad things weren’t as bad as I remember them either…I just think it’s funny that all this information is sitting in there just waiting for something to set it off so it can come out all over again…I just hope there isn’t a reincarnation process cause the guy that gets stuck with my brain is going be like…what the_________was this guy all about!...have a great day all and IO hope all your memories are good ones…plain and simple.

11-27-14-My Morning Thoughts: Happy Thanksgiving!

11-27-14-My Morning Thoughts: Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I just love to enjoy the family and friends and remember all those that came before me that helped make me who I am…and of course the foods going be pretty good today too!!!...plain and simple.

11-26-14-My Morning Thoughts: “glass houses”

11-26-14-My Morning Thoughts: “glass houses” You know the old saying "People who live in glass houses should not throw stones"…maybe that’s how we do it, only build glass houses from now on!...then everyone’s susceptible to everyone else’s situation and maybe there would be more thought, before one acts?…plain and simple.

11-24-14-My Morning Thoughts:

11-24-14-My Morning Thoughts: So here we are again, starting this wonderful week! I don’t know how many times I regretted Monday’s but they do seem a little easier now that I have a granddaughter…have a great week all…plain and simple.

11-21-14-My Morning Thoughts:

11-21-14-My Morning Thoughts: Is there really ever the most important thing to do…most things are important or we wouldn’t be doing them. Sure there are priorities here and there but it all has to get done eventually…I think? I’m pretty sure the list my better half gives me needs to get completed in its entirety…and the order, seldom matters…haha…have a great safe weekend all and hope your warm…plain and simple.

11-20-14-My Morning Thoughts: TBT

11-20-14-My Morning Thoughts: TBT Politics are easy, it’s the compromise and principals that gets them confused…since it’s Throw-Back-Thursday how far can you throw a politician?...never mind I’m not going there…have a great day all, enjoy the best things in life!...plain and simple.

11-18-14-My Morning Thoughts: “First’s”

11-18-14-My Morning Thoughts: “First’s” Why are first’s in lives always seemingly so important to us? A first tooth, a first word, a first step, a first day at school, a first kiss yes all these wonderful firsts should always be celebrated to be sure. But I would think the second tooth and that next step and the second day of school and that second kiss should be equally significant because that’s when the confidence of knowing…begins. I mean when you first ride that bike without training wheels or without your dad holding the seat running next to you it usually ends the same way…falling! But that next time you get up and know that you can do it and guess what…you do it without falling!...ya firsts are sure fantastic but there’s a certain flare of savwafaire that comes with knowing and I’m going to enjoy firsts seconds thirds and on and on and on…especially cause I’m a grandpa now…plain and simple.

11-17-14-My Morning Thoughts:

11-17-14-My Morning Thoughts: Hope for the best but prepare for the worst…oh why oh why is this still true today!!!!!!...how bout, improve the present so we can live in harmony…come on people get together, if not for us…for the children…plain and simple.

11-11-14-My Morning Thoughts: Veterans Day!

11-11-14-My Morning Thoughts: Veterans Day! I have so many family and friends that have served and so many still serving to protect our freedom’s…I wish I could say this more or in a way that it means as much as it does to me…thank you all for your sacrifice and service and it will never go unnoticed in my life!...plain and simple.

11-10-14-My Morning Thoughts: Feeling a bit older today

11-10-14-My Morning Thoughts: Feeling a bit older today Do you know why parents grow older so much faster than their children? Well let me tell ya. As the parent is raising their children and they both start getting older, the parent is wearing out faster because their doing all the raising and the kids (if it works right) are learning all the wisdom the parent can teach them. At some point the child is stronger and faster than the parent, however they still might not know that (at the time it’s happening) and the children believe at some point they know more than the parent. When this magical time befalls the child of “knowing all”, that is the precise moment in parenting that you know you have done your job correctly! Because if a child never reaches the point of “knowing everything” and the parent never has to say “you think you know everything” to their child, then we have failed in parenting 101…but if all goes well the parent has no problem with being older and worn out for the simple reason that the parent looks back on those child nurturing years and utters…now that was truly worth every second of growing older faster…(this was so much clearer in my head than when I wrote it down this morning!!!...I MUSY BE GETTING OLD…LOL…)…plain and simple.
