Blessed Beyond Measure

WP_000611

Looking at what has happened in Japan, and other places affected by the subsequent tsunami makes me so thankful for everything that I’ve been blessed with.

  • My family is healthy
  • My family is safe
  • I have my internet
  • I have a working cellphone
  • I have a working camera
  • I have a working computer
  • I have clean(ish) air to breath
  • I’m free to make the choices that I make

I’m blessed. I’m so blessed.

My thoughts and prayers to all those affected by what has happened in the past 48 or so hours, and those who will continue to be affected as the days, weeks, months, and years go on.

The Life is Tough

Nah, not really! I swear it’s not!

I do need to work on that laundry pile Surprised smile

Eh, you know what? It’s NICE that I don’t have to leave my home to do it. I don’t have to plop out a bunch of quarters just to wash some clothes. I can do my laundry naked if I wanted (and who’s to know if I’m going to Winking smile).

I feel VERY blessed that I’m able to do it!

Make the Pledge–I did for Janey!

The R-word is the word ‘retard(ed)’. Why does it hurt? The R-word hurts because it is exclusive. It’s offensive. It’s derogatory. The R-word is hate speech. See why supporters think the R-Word is hurtful when used in jokes or as part of everyday speech.

Today is “Spread the Word to End the Word” Day.

I’m not looking for just a Band-Aid fix. I’m joining the call for an all-out ban on the word. No child is retarded. NOTHING and NO ONE should be called that.

The hurt and pain that children (and adults) feel isn’t just something that can be wished away. Nothing takes away that pain. NO ONE deserves to feel like that.

Find another word for it. Personally, I use moronic. It describes those who act stupid better. When I think *something* is stupid, I say stupid or screwy. I NEVER call a person “retarded”. I don’t even like mentally handicapped. Every person has a gift, and those are developmentally challenged have the gift of showing us that we’re stronger than we are. They show us what true love really is.

So, Janey, I’m blogging this for my complete and total admiration of you, and your amazing son, Will. You two make me smile DAILY with how strong BOTH of you are!

As God is my witness …

Last night I fell asleep reading Gone with the Wind, and that must have prompted something in my brain.
