Weekly Topic

A new blog will be posted weekly.  My intent is to offer you hope and encouragement in happiness and during life’s struggles.  Life is so short and so precious.  I wish you love, happiness and prosperity every moment of everyday.

Across The Globe

From across the distant lands, and to the distant seas, you don’t know me, but I wish you peace.  Through times of uncertainty and life’s hardships; hold tight to your faith, you will get through it.  I wish I could carry your weight, but you are stronger than I.  I hate the thought of war with all the death, injustices and lies.

all of the beauty that surrounds you, your beautiful mountains and seas, with your beautiful art work, beads and satin for your ceremonies, all is cherished; nothing is lost. If you live in destruction, just know this in peace.  For all our time is limited, so grab your loved ones closely and give them peace.  Just know when it’s all over, that our hearts and minds will be free, to remember the days on earth remembering it like it was a dream. 
Merry Christmas around the world may you have peace.  Here’s to a much better 2011 throughout the land.  Share, love, give, console, smile, cheer and say a prayer, for in the brotherhood of man, we all want peace. 
So hug your little ones and give them stories of hope.  They are our next generation to correct the ones before.


*** The Illinois House of Representatives issued a Certificate of G.E.D. Completion to it's graduates.  This is what is written on the certificate.  It reads as follow:

Believe in yourself, what you think, what you feel,

Believe in the truth, in the good, the ideal.                                                                                                                                    
Believe that your dreams can someday become real..

Forever and always~Believe.

Believe in yourself and in what you can do.

Believe in the good that you strive to pursue~

Believe in friends that believe in you too..

Forever and Always~Believe



In today’s society divorce is prevalent.  Either you’ve gone through a divorce, been a product of divorced parents, or you know someone that has gone through a divorce.

In the divorce environment a child can feel the hurt and pain as they watch the power struggle take shape.  Sometimes as parents, we can lose sight of the child/children that’s stuck in the middle.

It is very hard to take a parent in the middle of a bitter divorce and ask them to fast forward their children’s lives by ten years, then twenty years, and so on.

By doing this the parent will realize the hurtful words and the biased opinions of their once loving spouse are starting to creep in their child’s minds and play a part in their memories.  The arguments pertaining to child support, visitation, education, etc is NOT in a child’s best interest.

A child will adjust and learn so much when they see their parents discussing these important issues.  You might not agree with each other but the fact that the children see them talking to each other as mature adults sends such a positive message to them.


Everyone Bleeds Red

As you're walking around a crowded, busy street, stop and take a look around.  Every single person has at least one thing in common; everyone, no matter what sex, age, race or religion. The common link, the common tie, the common factor is the color of blood. The color of your blood and everyone else's blood is red.  We all bleed the same.

If people can focus on that thought, they will begin to see and feel beyond their own discriminatory boundaries.  People would open up and welcome new cultures, new attitudes, and new awareness. People would be more giving if they realized the fact that everyone bleeds red.

We’re all going to die someday, that’s a fact. Until that day comes, no one should ever stand at a crossroad when it comes to helping another fellow human being out.  Don’t look at their gender, don’t look at their age, don’t look at the color of their skin, simply realize that the blood running through their veins, is the same color of the blood that’s running through yours.  It is the manner in which we live that separates us or brings us together.


Weak and Strong

I have had the pleasure of working with and hanging out with both types of women.  I don’t particularly like the word weak, so I will use the term; temporarily weak.  I have pondered about both of these types and I tried furiously to come up with a common denominator.  So this is how I broke it down.

A strong woman is a woman who exudes self confidence in all forms; both personally and professionally.  A strong woman cannot be controlled or manipulated.  She is 100% sound on the decisions that she makes and has done her homework to back it.  The strong woman knows what her path in life will be and if she ever becomes unsure she has the ability to sit down and map it out, logically.  There is not too much that the strong woman cannot do or obtain.  There is nothing in her path to her destiny and should something appear, she will move it out of her way.


So, You’re Thinking about Leaving

We all have come across that time in our life when the grass looks greener on the other side.  Well, this is to help you decipher exactly what it is that you are missing in your life.

You first have to think; has there been anything major that’s happened in your life that has upset you?  This is so important!  For an example:   the death of a family member, or a close friend?    Something so upsetting that it shook the ground right underneath you.  A bad experience can bring people closer by the comfort and the knowing that they are with the one that they want to be with when death comes knocking at their door.  It is NOT comforting to know that the love and support you need is not there.  And that you are not with the person you should be with.

The second thing is just plain remembering.  Take a stroll down memory lane.  How long has it been since you had fun together?  How long has it been since you’ve been taken to your favorite place?  Does he/she attend social or family functions with you?  Or does he/she go with you and you end up having a miserable time?  Or are you to the point that you either don’t want your mate to go with, or you just don’t attend them anymore?  Are you loved and supported the way you want and deserve to be?  Does he respect your wishes and the boundaries that you set?
