What is on my mind?

At the moment, we are monitoring the weather here in Tennessee.  The storms are still a few hours away, but the winds are already nasty.  Jessica is still at Vanderbilt with Chloe.  Her surgery went okay, but she is now having trouble breathing.  Please keep the prayers coming.

In my book, I told you that I try to keep my political opinions on Twitter, but I can’t hide my frustrations with Nancy and the Democratic Party.  I look around in my rural community, and I see so many problems, but the two worst are healthcare to homelessness.  The poorest American Citizens get ignored, and the veterans get treated poorly by their communities.  The government continues to ignore Mental health issues, so suicide is on the rise.  Many children continue to grow up without proper nutrition.  Nancy is so obsessed with impeachment that she can’t seem to take care of her people.

We rented the new Rambo movie, and we have been playing with our grandson.  He has been awake since 5 am, and this grandma is exhausted!  Alexandria, Austin, and Ashley are all working today.  My sister decided not to come today because of the weather.

The bills are paid, and there is food in the refrigerator, so I have no complaints.  I am beyond thankful for my blessings!

Lorie emailed the cover for my next book this morning, and I cried.  However, they were happy tears.  No one has never painted me before, so it was a little overwhelming and beautiful!

If you're reading this and you are having a bad day, I beg you to take a hot bath and rest!

I know it’s easier said than done, but my dear, you are a WARRIOR!

We have to stop meeting like this....

Tonight I talked to myself.  I said,” self, why do you feel the way you do?”  Then I said,” self, we have to stop meeting like this because it's one o'clock in the morning”!  I laughed because regardless of the predicament I find myself in, sometimes I don't understand why I do the things I do. Have you ever had a random thought and wondered, “why did I think about that?.  I try to ignore my random thoughts and feelings, but sometimes they just come out when I least expect it. Example 1 ~ When I forget to take my medication, I feel everything.  The depression, sadness, and pain flood in, and all I can do is cry myself to sleep. Example 2 ~ I was watching season three of Anne with an E tonight, and it hit me.  I was crying and feeling very sad.  I should be happy because it was a beautiful ending. However, my mind was thinking about how they loved each other in their youth and found each other again. Right now, in my life, love songs and anything sappy makes me cry.

Beauty in the chaos

Early voting started Friday, so I went to town and voted in the States Primary.  It was a peaceful drive, and then Friday night, we watched the movie 2012. There are so many theories and conspiracies floating around online that the movie made me think about all of them. My thoughts quickly turn to religion and how none of us know when our lives will end. Humanity has gotten it wrong, so many times, and religious leaders continue to attempt to guess, but even the Bible says no one knows. One thing that I know for sure is the earth is a breathtaking place, and I continue to find small glimpses of its beauty amidst the chaos.  Just yesterday, we went to Fall Creek Falls State Park, and I took a dip in the cold water. Families and children were everywhere, laughing and playing.  You would never think that the USA is in an uproar. I saw no signs of social distancing or a pandemic.  I didn't see any mask.  Men were walking their dogs, and the beautiful smells of wood burning flo
