These Are The Moments

These Are The Moments


These are the moments in our life that make us, and they set the course of who we’re always going to be.

Sometimes they’re little, subtle moments.

Sometimes, they are big moments, moments we never saw coming.

Most often no one asks for their life to change, but it does.

It’s what you do with that change and the afterwards that counts.

That’s when you find out who you really are. 


  In Living the Afterward of Change

Frolic and meander, even when you are made fun of.

Kiss your lover while others are about and may be watching. 

 Sleep, even when you’re afraid of what your dreams have been bringing.

Run, even when it feels like you cannot possibly lift a another foot and run another inch.

 Laugh out loud, even when you feel too sick, or too exhausted. 

Laugh anyway. Trust, even when your heart is screaming NO, and you think it could break you.

Trust anyway. Sing, even if others take on that smug smile, like their singing breaks crystal.

Sing anyway.

                         And Dance, even if you can’t keep time, and you suddenly grow two left (right) feet. 

Dance anyway.

Smile, even if you really feel like crying. Tears only blur your vision.

Smile anyway.

.Never forget a moment, even when the memories tug at your heart string’s and leave a hole. Because of all the pain & joy we experience we become the deep feeling kind of person we are meant to be. 

Without our experiences we are void of emotions, a vital missing link to who we are. What makes us brave is our enthusiasm to live through our trials, tribulations and hurdles in life; and then still make the choice to hold our head up high the very next day. 

 Let us not live with a fear of life.

We became even stronger after all our experiences and painful moments that have happened. 

Maybe stronger now…….more than we ever were before –

  1. It’s a very hot and muggy day. You desperately want something very cool and refreshing to quench your thirst and revitalize your body. What would you drink?

Home made lemonade with a lot of crushed ice.  I love lemons when its warm and dry. Nothing seems to quench my thirst better. I do not drink soda at all so in the summer  I try to keep large baskets of fresh lemons around at all times. I also cook with a  lot of fresh lemon juice and the zest.

2. What do you keep in the trunk of your car?

Spare tire, all that goes with changing a tire. Jumper cables, flares a blanket, spare water jug. Also because for about 3 months out of the year we are snow country, so in addition would be: ice melt, sand, tarp, blocks of wood to use for traction if needed, and  a shovel with fold down handle. Extra dry clothes and coats.

3. What is your favorite TV show that is currently on TV?

Okay he is not a show in of himself, but for 40 weeks out of the year he is on my television every Sunday for about 4 hours Kevin Harvick #29  & about 41 other drivers are racing close to 200mph on oval tracks. Kevin Harvick has been the driver follow and cheer for. Its been 12 yrs now, since the tragic death of Dale Earnhardt Sr

I wish I was watching Downton Abbey like my friends across the pond are. I am not much of a television watcher unless it is our PBS (which is where Downton Abbey will be broadcast from in the states)  I have become an avid DA fan and am waiting impatiently to see what is happening at the manor now

Thank you to those watching the series now and not saying a word. I am humbly grateful!

         4. Is it more important to love or be loved?

I’ll say both of course. It’s a treasure to love deeply and abundantly. It’s also something to be cherished by being loved. Rewarding is when both happen at the same timeSo let me ask you this; have you loved someone today?


Daughter, Adele, Ipad, Love, 2012

Posting with my daughters iPad . Wondering if this really that cool? I like the navigation on it which I thought I was going to hate. It is not bad. I have many things in my life that trump buying an iPad but it will be placed at the bottom of my wish list. It’s pretty cool but I have other references and needs first

Funny thing is though when it comes to writing I prefer my keyboard, and when searching for and posting images I prefer my laptop. It is true I have great affection for what my laptop. When my the 8 yr old laptop final;ly crashed for good I cried. Silly? maybe.

These machine hold my life-like I know yours holds yours. I have Carbonite and my data is safe. Its more about the actual little black rectangle that has most recently become a life line for me. I will some day maybe add a iPad to my arsenal but for now when I have much bigger things planned for the horizon this shall wait. But it was fun

Adele, my daughter, talks about love, life & laughter  Thanks J~

“Barefoot Baroness,

do you know what it’s going to feel like when the day comes and everything you now want has come to pass? When you’re living in total abundance, in perfect health, looking fabulous, with friends and laughter wherever you go?

It’s going to feel like, “Yeah… of course.”

That’s how well I know you,
The Universe “

I add… “Oh Yeah….bring it on Universe..bring it on..
