Thoughts- what is Love?

“Love is the emotion of connection.
But the new science of love tells us that love is an emotion that is generated during certain kinds of interactions. As Barbara Fredrickson, Ph.D, author of Love 2.0: How Our Supreme Emotion Affects Everything We Feel, Think Do, and Become, says, “Love is not a category of relationships. Nor is it something ‘out there’ that you can fall into, or—years later—out of…Although you may subscribe to a whole host of definitions of love, your body subscribes to just one. Love is that micro-moment of warmth and connection that you share with another living being.”

This means that love is an interaction, an exchange, that comes into being, then disappears again. It’s much more ephemeral that we once believed, but it is also much more nourishing.”

    There was a blind girl who hated herself purely for the fact she was blind. The only person she didn’t hate was her loving boyfriend, as he was always there for her. She said that if she could only see the world, she would marry him.

    One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her – now she could see everything, including her boyfriend. Her boyfriend asked her, “now that you can see the world, will you marry me?”

    The girl was shocked when she saw that her boyfriend was blind too, and refused to marry him. Her boyfriend walked away in tears, and later wrote a letter to her saying:


    Moral of the story: When our circumstances change, so does our mind. Some people may not be able to see the way things were before, and might not be able to appreciate them. There are many things to take away from this story, not just one.



    Bury him in the snows Valley Forge, and you have a George Washington. Raise him in abject poverty and you have an Abraham Lincoln.
    Subject him to a bitter religious prejudice, and you have a Disraeli.
    Spit on him and crucify him, and you have a Jesus Christ.
    Label him “too stupid to learn” and you have a Thomas Edison.
    Tell her she’s too old to start painting at eighty, and you have a Grandma Moses.
    Have him or her born black in society filled with racial discrimination, and you have a Booker T. Washington, Harriet Tubman, Marian Anderson, George Washington Carver or Martin Luther King Jr.
    Make him the first child to survive in a poor Italian family of eighteen children, and you have an Enrico Caruso.

    Afflict him with periods of depression so severe that he cut off his own ear, and you have a Vincent van Gogh.Tell her in late 1800s and early 1900s that only men can be scientists, and you have a Madame Curie, who eventually won two Nobel Prizes—one for physics and the other for chemistry.
    Tell a young boy who loved to sketch and draw that he has no talent, and you have a Walt Disney. ☺
    Take a crippled child whose only home he ever knew was an orphanage, and you have a James E. West, who became the first chief executive of the Boy Scouts of America. Make him a second fiddle in an obscure South American orchestra, and you have a Toscanini.

    Time, such a precious word.
    It gives us the gift of moments.
    Moments so beautiful that change our lives forever.
    But those moments turn into memories that can never be recaptured.
    We are left with footprints in are minds and in our hearts.
    Longing to recapture time, hoping it will last forever.

    To be left with the reality of the passing of time;
    So precious and so fleeting.

    We can’t bring it back or relive.
    Only be grateful that it happened.
    So cherish every moment, never taking anything for granted,
    Because some day, that will be the moment you’ll want to relive.

    Love with all your heart.
    Let your loved ones know how much you care.
    Smile even when you want to cry.
    Live life to the fullest,
    Because you never know when your time will pass with the wind.

  4. Finding Happiness

    Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar.

    Suddenly the speaker stopped and started giving each person a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.

    Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes.

    Everyone was frantically searching for their name, pushing, colliding with each other, and there was utter chaos.

    At the end of 5 minutes, no one could find their own balloon.

    Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.

    The speaker began: This is exactly happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is. Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness, you will get your own happiness.

    And this is the purpose of human life.


  5. A meeting was held quite far from Earth; “it’s time again for another birth
    Said to the angels to the Lord above,
    “This special child will need much love.
    Her progress may seem very slow.
    And she’ll require extra care
    From the folks she meets way down there.
    She may not run or laugh or play,
    Her thoughts may seem so far away.
    In many ways she won’t adapt,
    And she’ll be known as handicapped.
    So let’s be careful where she is sent,
    We want her life to be content.
    Please Lord,find the parents who
    Will do a special job for you,
    They will not realize right away.😀
    The roll their asking to play
    But with his child sent above
    Come stronger father and richer love,
    And soon they’ll know the privilege given
    And caring for this gift from heaven.
    Their precious charge, so meek and mild,
    Is heavens very special child.”☺John and Edna Massimilla


  6. Memorable camping trips:

    I been on quite a few camping trips with my kids, and most of them were very enjoyable, but there are those few occasions where you can say they were camping trips from hell.
    We would try to find somewhat remote places, but most of the time found it difficult; my ex-boyfriend did not like to be around too many people.
    In our search he led us one time to this place where there was no fire pit, no picnic table all because he did not want nobody around. It was turning out to be a pain in the butt.
    Well, it was getting late and we ended up spending the night in this very remote place. It reminded me of the “Blair Witch Project” It was a spontaneous trip and limited on supplies. Worst camping trip I endured. My kids were real troopers though, my daughter and I spent the night in the vehicle and my son and boyfriend spent the night around a campfire they built. I could not wait to get out of there the next morning.

    Another camping trip was with my four kids, two older daughters, my youngest son, and daughter and boyfriend, and my older daughter’s boyfriend at the time. When we all went to this camping site, it was nice. It had picnic tables, bathrooms and we all set up our tents. The only problem is we picked a day that was really windy. We made the best of it anyways, but by morning the only tent that was standing was one of my older daughters.
    I would make it a point to try and take the kids camping at least once a year; and some of these trips were just camping trips from hell, but those are the ones that are most memorable.

    One other camping trip was where I went to the Ocean with all my kids, one of my grandkids, and my older daughter’s husband. That trip was a lot of fun.
    The funniest thing about it was that my oldest daughter borrowed a tent from her aunt that was huge, about two bedroom areas. It was crazy trying to get that big tent set up, but as we were doing it, and having some struggles we were laughing and having a lot a fun, the tent collapsed on us a couple times before we got it set up right where it would stay.

    There were times where I would take my younger kids camping and to keep them busy I made up this game for them called “Survival of the Fittest”
    This game for me was good because I did not have to exert myself too much. While my spouse and I were sitting in our lawn chairs drinking beverages we would shout out the rules. The kids would have to run across the creek, find certain items tag a tree and race each other. It kept them busy for hours. My daughter at the time ran like a deer across the creeks. It was fun to watch, and very memorable.

  7. Oops

    Never say, “oops.” Always say, “Ah, interesting.”
    ~Author Unknown

    My husband, Darryl, and I have four kids, spread out over a fourteen-year period. For several years we had a preschooler, elementary schooler, middle schooler and high schooler all at the same time. With four kids at completely different stages and on entirely different schedules, finding quality “private” time for just the two of us was a challenge.
    Since we rarely had the house to ourselves, we made it a point to schedule time away from work during the few brief hours one day each week when our youngest was at Mother’s-Day-Out at the same time the older kids were at their various schools — time we could meet at home for some unhurried, uninterrupted romance.
    When Darryl got back to the office after one such encounter, he sent me a sweet and sexy e-mail referring to the pleasures of our intimate time together. When I hadn’t responded after a couple of days he mentioned it. I’d never received his e-mail. But since it hadn’t come back as “undeliverable” we knew someone had.
    My e-mail address consisted of my given name, last initial and dot-com address. Darryl had forgotten to include my last initial. When he realized his mistake he had a sudden vision of his name in our local newspaper, in bold print, under the headline “Local Businessmen Arrested for E-mail Harassment.” He quickly sent off an apology to the mistaken address, explaining the mix-up. Within minutes he received a reply!
    “No apology necessary. Although I’m getting up in years and it’s been a long time since I’ve had the experience you described, I very much enjoyed the reminder. Best wishes for you and your wife to enjoy many more such afternoons.”


  8. Others share with me also , like this one sent from my brother

    February 28, 2017
    A thought about Perception:

    Perception is a frightening ability. For from ones life’s experiences, which are stored in a great reservoir within their heart, mind, and soul, reality is continuously under review for either good or bad; from a good reservoir, one views life in liberty free from condemnation to themselves and to others; from a corrupted reservoir one views life through bondage, knowing only mistrust, and disdain towards themselves and others. Consider how you judge because you are pulling from your reservoir. Sent to those I love and respect


    Cherish The Moment

    I was about 8 or 9 when i first met this kid named landon. He was in my 3rd grade class he was always smiling and laughing. we became friends that year,well fast forward a few years and he is in 7th and i am in 8th. i would see him the the lunch room but i never spoke to him. one time i did and he acted as if he did not remember me so i had to remind him. Time past and it was getting towards the end of the year so i am in ninth now and i haven’t seen him in a year. Well we both did not acknowledge one another but thought often about one another,a couple of weeks ago i got a text saying that he had past on into the greater life after not surviving from a dirt bike wreck. I just wanted to share this because we need to always cherish the moment. When we are thinking about someone and they are heavy on our hearts we should seek the person out and reconnect and not take one another for granted although we may see one another often,The important thing is to cherish each moment because we may not have another moment.Remember that if you have a friend that you haven’t seen or connected with or see and did not greet them or speak to them in a while .Please just give them a call and check on them. And for God’s sake cherish that moment because we may never get another


  10. Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love. For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other. Which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship.
    Marilyn Monroe


  11. In life there comes few moments in which you feel a little surprised. Those moments could either bring joyous feelings and can you in deep grieves. Such moments are usually based on some interesting facts. These facts could be about something or someone. These facts are mostly changes the total perception about something or someone. The life itself contains so many hidden emotions and some deep linkages associated to something or sometimes to any other person. After realizing the truth or better to say a bitter truth about that specific thing or person the whole idea of liking and disliking could go in danger.

    In our daily life we can experience such things. All the things associated to a person possess some unique characteristics due to which a person is linked to those things. If those characteristics changes, than the bond of a person and that thing gets affected and some time it happens because of these interesting facts that comes along and changes the whole scenario of life. The facts could be about anything for example, if you like some artist due to his work of art and capabilities and you become a huge fan of that artist and gets inspiration in your life because of his work and someday, you come to know that the work he do is not his own work. He usually copy some other person’s work and shows it to the general public than your idea of praising him or liking him could totally change.

    These facts are just like some viral disease, they spread rapidly and this is also a fact about them. These facts are more like a news, either bad or a good one. But they play an important role in anyone’s life and the reason for their importance is that every life contains some interesting facts in it.


  12. Heart Song

    Once upon a time there was a great man who married the woman of his

    dreams. With their love, they created a little girl. She was a bright and

    cheerful little girl and the great man loved her very much.

    When she was very little, he would pick her up, hum a tune and dance

    with her around the room, and he would tell her, “I love you, little girl.”

    When the little girl was growing up, the great man would hug her and

    tell her, “I love you, little girl.” The little girl would pout and say, “I’m

    not a little girl anymore.” Then the man would laugh and say, “But to

    me, you’ll always be my little girl.”

    The little girl who-was-not-little-anymore left her home and went into

    the world. As she learned more about herself, she learned more about

    the man. She saw that he truly was great and strong, for now she

    recognized his strengths. One of his strengths was his ability to express

    his love to his family. It didn’t matter where she went in the world, the

    man would call her and say, “I love you, little girl.”

    The day came when the little girl who-was-not-little-anymore received a

    phone call. The great man was damaged.

    He had had a stroke. He was aphasic, they explained to the girl. He

    couldn’t talk anymore and they weren’t sure that he could understand the

    words spoken to him. He could no longer smile, laugh, walk, hug, dance

    or tell the little girl who-was-not-littie-anymore that he loved her.

    And so she went to the side of the great man. When she walked into the

    room and saw him, he looked small and not strong at all. He looked at

    her and tried to speak, but he could not.

    The little girl did the only thing she could do. She climbed up on the bed

    next to the great man. Tears ran from both of their eyes and she drew

    her arms around the useless shoulders of her father.

    Her head on his chest, she thought of many things. She remembered the

    wonderful times together and how she had always felt protected and

    cherished by the great man. She felt grief for the loss she was to endure,

    the words of love that had comforted her.

    And then she heard from within the man, the beat of his heart. The heart

    where the music and the words had always lived. The heart beat on,

    steadily unconcerned about the damage to the rest of the body. And

    while she rested there, the magic happened. She heard what she needed

    to hear.

    His heart beat out the words that his mouth could no longer say.
    I love you I love you I love you Little girl Little girl Little girl
    And she was comforted.

  13. …………..MY MOTHER…………….

    This here poem is about my mother
    Once upon a time, she had a lover.
    He, you see was not too bad.
    He was the man that became my DAD!
    Her thoughts and her actions continued in love.
    Her children are all she would ever think of.
    The first of her three children went straight to God.
    The next two she loved with His staff and His rod.
    The two that kept living were Jerry and Dawn.
    In her heart is where all three belong.
    The two of us alive grew with love in our heart.
    God knew this; He knew it from the start.
    She watched over us through thick and thin.
    She nurtured us both for our lives to begin.
    She was so loving, a true heart of GOLD.
    I LOVE my mother, it is her heart that I hold.
    My sister did well and kept her life on track.
    But me you see, this was not so, and that is a fact.
    My mother prayed for me and stayed the course.
    She prayed to God as He was the FORCE!
    I fell and I fell so deep it would seem.
    I am sure that in her soul, God heard her scream.
    Even though I was an enormous pain.
    Her love for me, still it remained the same.
    For years it went on with no end in sight.
    But, I too saw that I needed to fight.
    She did not know that God was in me.
    With her by my side God did set me free.
    Through many prayers and a very pure heart.
    Age Forty Eight, God gave me a new start.
    All of her life she was like that of an elf.
    Now she is old and cannot take care of herself.
    Now Eighty Six years old and her body so frail.
    She deserves the best from me and I will not fail.
    My love for her is like that of NO OTHER!
    Her heart is so full of love. She is…… “MY MOTHER”!

    HAPPY MOTHERS DAY everyone…



  14. Today was my big interview day, and for some reason even though I have been on many these in the past couple years; I felt a little nervous. I worked at this particular place previously, but this is for a different area. I felt I did OK, and focused on my experience and education I have. I made up my mind that if this did not go through for me I would lay it to rest for a while and quit applying for jobs. Try to be content as I could where I am at. At the end of the interview one of the ladies on the panel replied, ” I am looking forward to getting to know you better.” This sounded very promising and I hope it works out for me, and there won’t be any problems or issues with me getting the job.

    I am not perfect, but I prayed to God, and I hope he grants this change for me. I cant take anymore disappointments.Thank you Lord, keep me in your presence, and help me live my own life to your standards. Amen



    During a seminar, a woman asked,” How do I know if I am with the right person?”

    The author then noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so he said, “It depends. Is that your partner?” In all seriousness, she answered “How do you know?” Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it’s weighing on your mind
    replied the author.

    Here’s the answer.

    Every relationship has a cycle… In the beginning; you
    fall in love with your partner. You anticipate their calls,
    want their touch, and like their idiosyncrasies. Falling in love wasn’t hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn’t have to DO anything. That’s why it’s called “falling” in love.

    People in love sometimes say, “I was swept of my feet.”Picture the expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something happened TO YOU.

    Falling in love is a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few months or years of being together, the euphoria of love fades. It’s a natural cycle of EVERY relationship.

    Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse’s idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts. The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship; you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage.

    At this point, you and/or your partner might start asking, “Am I with the right person?” And as you reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you
    may begin to desire that experience with someone
    else. This is when relationships breakdown.

    The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the person you found.

    People blame their partners for their unhappiness and look outside for fulfillment. Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes.

    Infidelity is the most common. But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances. But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your relationship. It lies within it.

    I’m not saying that you couldn’t fall in love with someone else. You could. And TEMPORARILY you’d feel better. But you’d be in the same situation a few years later.

    Because (listen carefully to this):

    The key to succeeding in a Relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the Person you found.

    SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. You have to work on it day in and day out. It takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it demands WISDOM. You have to know
    WHAT TO DO to make it work. Make no mistake about it!

    Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your partner), Just as there are physical laws Of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. If you know how to apply these laws, the results are predictable.

    Love is therefore a “decision”. Not just a feeling.

    Remember this always: God determines who walks into your life. It is up to you to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let GO! ♥


  16. First Angel Of Our Life

    The night was cold and dark, with the continuous downpour of rain, coupled with the howling winds…people were rushing for shelter and protection. But he was the only one who remained calm,unaware of all the confusion outside…for he knew, from the loving hands that held him close,his mother would always be there for him.

    Ask a person about their mother and you will see a sudden spark in their eyes…as they talk about the person they love the most! She is our first companion in life and a bond of a lifetime is formed even before we enter this world. A mother’s love is one of the purest of all forms and beyond comparison. She is perhaps the only one who can understand our feelings without any exchange of words. Her presence is a sense of comfort, her love and support, like an oasis in a desert…she knows how to make us smile and at the same time, knows how to make us toe the line! She’s been there through all our ups and downs in life…and every sad day in life will always get better, just by seeing her loving eyes and encouraging smile.

    As Agatha Christie once said… “A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world.”

    She is our warrior,our friend,our adviser and most importantly, the one who endures all difficulties beforehand herself in order to smoothen our path of life.

    To put it in a nutshell, our mother was,is and will always be our first and best friend forever!!!She sacrifices herself for the ones that were sent through her by Our God and creator as a portal a giver of life.We must hold her dear and precious for she is ordained to watch over love and teach us her loving and nurturing ways.No matter what we endure and when all others turn away Our Mothers love for us remains the same.


  17. Oh my kids make my every day so much better even tho they are a lot pretty much all the time lol I couldn’t ask for it to be any different because if I wasnt so busy and trying so hard to keep everything together for them then I would fall apart with everything I’m going through. They keep me busy,motivated and feeling alive instead of dead inside like my basic human instincts want to just crawl under a blanket and never come out but I won’t ever give in or allow someone else to determine my self worth again besides my kids they are the ones who truly love me regardless of any flaw and support me through it all and make me see ME more clearly and I finally can say I Love Me!! Thank you God for blessing me with my little angels to walk through this life with. Me+them against the world!!!


  18. FREE WILL!
    God gave us all a FREE WILL!!!
    No one is perfect and we all make mistakes. I know that each of us will stand before God one day. Personally, I have put ALL my eggs in that basket and decided a very long time ago that it would be best to stand before Him at that time with a slew of accomplishments for Him rather than merely live my life for my own selfish personal wants and desires. Because of this choice that I made, many look at me in a veriety of ways. Some look down on me, some look up to me… some are adverse to me… some even dont care one way or another. But the one thing everyone does is breath the very same air as I do and the One who I have given and dedicated my life to is the One who created this very air that we all breath.
    I have opened a “HEAVENLY” BANK ACCOUNT! This bank account will be FOREVER! The bank acounts here on Earth will pass away, the bank accounts in HEAVEN will never pass away.
    Before I could actually be in Heaven to cash in on this bank account, I had to make deposites.
    As we do GOD’S WILL helping our brothers and sisters here on Earth, this is how deposits are made in Heaven. With a humble heart I have sought to do all that I can with this extremely temporary life, and with the guidance of Almighty God Himself to invest everything into one goal. That goal has been to first seek all that God has set before all of us, and then once learned work to help as many as possible to see and experience the REAL TRUTH also (COMPLETE TRUTH). I did just that! I am still in the midst of doing just that! The cool thing here is that I can give more time than most because God held me back from achieving what many take for granted… “A FAMILY”!!! I have no family, God kept me from this so I can dedicate more time for a greater purpose. Most of you have enjoyed this very precious thing that has eluded me. But I have come to accept this job for what it is and have embraced the job God has given to me. You all can rest knowing that one of your friends sought to learn things that most of you did not have the time to do. Please accept my efforts and let us all work together as a hand for God here on earth… (Y) O:) O:)
    Seeking the REAL TRUTH takes a comitment! My desire is not of this world!!! My desire is to acheive the highest standard in eternal life. My goal has never been in this tiny little bit of a vapor of a life that we are find ourselves in the midst of now! THE TRUTH has always been my goal. The epitome of TRUTH!!!
    Hello my brothers and sisters here on Facebook…
    Let me take you on a little trip back into time. Back to before the beginning of time….

    God bless all of you!!!

    Moments, Days, Years

    When I was a young man I had a lot of ego and very little empathy. I thought I knew everything. I looked forward to fame and success. I can even remember once in college arrogantly telling one of my friends: “If only everyone listened to me then they would all be happy.” I finally left school ready to take on the world. Little did I know the world was about to take on me.

    In the years following college instead of success I found struggles. I had trouble finding work. The jobs I did work at were either temporary or back-breaking and none of them paid well. When my wife and I had children we were shocked to learn that not one but both of our sons had Autism and would need to be taken care of for the rest of their lives. I had no idea why this had happened to us and I was very angry at God.

    In time, however, I began to change. My formally massive ego was shrinking fast and my empathy was beginning to grow. Instead of success, I found my joy in moments of love. Playing and laughing with my sons brought me so much happiness. My boys taught me more about peace, patience, kindness, joy, and unconditional love than I could have ever learned on my own. I began to share the lessons I learned through my writings and my life. I finally realized too that my purpose in this world had nothing to do with fame or success and everything to do with allowing God’s love and light into my life and sharing it with everyone I could.

    Always remember that moments of love become days of love and days of love become years of love. You may not be happy 100% of the time. No one can be in this world. Yet, in God’s love you will find a joy no earthly success could ever give. Put all of your moments, days, and years to good use then. Live them with love.


  20. Hello my friends…
    As most of you all know, my sister and I lost our mom last Wednesday, the 10th of this month. This was the hardest time in my life so far. It is worse than getting shot with that .357 Magnum bullet in my belly and out my back. This shot went through my heart! I wrote this little bit of words & music in honor and memory of my mom… I hope you all like it, my video… ❤ O:)

    God bless O:)

  21. Neighbors

    A wise and successful man bought a beautiful house with a huge orchard. But, not all were happy for him. An envious man lived in an old house next to him. He constantly tried to make his fellow neighbor’s stay in the beautiful house as miserable as possible. He threw garbage under his gate and made other nasty things happen .

    One fine day the wise man woke up in a good mood and went onto the porch to notice buckets of garbage thrown there. The wise man took a bucket , after cleaning his porch. He then carried the bucket and went to knock on his envious neighbor‘s door.

    The envious neighbor heard a knock at his door and gleefully thought, “ I finally got him!”. He answered his door ready to quarrel with his successful neighbor. However the wise man gave him a bucket of freshly picked apples saying, “The one who is rich in something, shares it with others.”that is why they are rich.


  22. R.I.P. Today we remember all babies born sleeping, or we’ve carried but never met, those we’ve held but couldn’t take home, the ones that came home but didn’t stay. Make this an image on your wall if you or someone you know has suffered the loss of a baby. In memory of all angels too perfect for earth 👼☁☀. Dedicated to all the angels

  23. There was a part of me I kept hidden for many years.

    The part that felt the earth and her pain viscerally, the part that felt magic flowing through my blood, the part of me that cured a “non curable” disease on my body at 14 by praying with a TV preacher, the part of me that could short circuit most electronics if I was emotionally charged, the part of me that has moved water, moved metal objects, bent forks, and and bumped computer cursors on screens that were not touch screen, the part of me that conducted waves above my reach, that called the eagle, the moose and the bear with intention to come meet me at a certain place, the part of me that froze an aquarium of fish at a zoo and didn’t know how to break it, the one who called the fires to cleanse the earth, the part that summoned the divine to connect me to my needs and the needs of those around me with a thought, the one who asks a person to bring me coffee in my head and they show up with it….and so much more than I can even share.

    We are ALL this connected. To each other, to the earth, to ourselves, and to whoever or whatever you call GOD.

    I could never tell you with absolute certainty any particular truth, anything except it’s possible to commune with something larger than you and ask it to show up and when you allow your Spirit to intuitively listen to the still small voice, YOU CAN ACTUALLY MOVE MOUNTAINS!

    When you trust your innocence to lead and listen. When you trust your connection to the DIVINE, and without fear, PRACTICE the possibilities of our human potential, you can conduct the energy of the universe to move. You can call on the power to part the seas, because you TRUST you are safe and you are good and you are powerful and you are a part of a whole.

    But you do need access to ALL of you!

    What have you got to lose ☺


  24. Today is my mom’s 88th birthday. Last year on her 87th, she was in the hospital. I fed her in the hospital and comforted her throughout the day and things were looking good.
    Life throws us twists and turns all the time and many things come about that we are not prepared for.
    I was happy that she was doing better. She came home on the evening of the 8th, we sat together and then she went to sleep, she woke up on Tuesday morning (the 9th). I spent most of the day with her, happy that she was better. I fed her, moved her in her bed, got her up to eat throughout the day and all seemed fine (I let her sleep, checking on her periodically). I went in to check on her about 9 in the evening and she was sweating and non coherent. She was limp as I picked her up and sat her in her chair (an adult feeding chair with a table, like that of a hi-chair for a kid). The best way to describe her at that moment was; the lights were on, but no one was home. She starred into empty space. The Fire Department and ambulance got here and she went back to the hospital. I called and they said give them an hour to check her in. Not more than 5 minutes later, I got a call… it was a DOCTOR (Doctors don’t call people, their assistants do). I was all ears… He said; “Your mom’s body is shutting down and you should come right away”. Shocked, I left right away hoping that something was not correct… I got there and they said she is on FULL OXYGEN. She was on #2 in the oxygen machine here at home.
    She had COPD for the last 20 years and only had 10% use of the little tubes in her lungs, and 30% use of the big tubes. Her lungs were shot. That’s what 60 years of smoking did for her.

    A QUICK NOTE; Back in 2009, she smoked still, I prayed to God that she would quit. 7 days later she had some sort of a seizure and I called the ambulance and she went to the hospital. She was there for a few days and then had to go to a nursing home for another 2 weeks. When she got home, her memory was affected and she did not remember that she smoked… I was happy and I did not remind her. My prayers were answered. I believe this is the reason why she lasted another 9 years. Her doctor always told me that I was doing a great job taking care of her. At the time it made me feel good hearing that, but it wasn’t until she died that the doctor told me that it was a miracle that she lived as long as she did and that was why he always said I was taking such good care of her. That really made me smile in my heart.

    But as she laid there that night in the hospital they said that when they take the oxygen away she would die. My first instinct was to keep her on oxygen, I even told the doctor, but he said sooner or later that wont be enough anymore. He asked me if I wanted to take her home and try that. This was when I had to THINK OF HER above my personal wants and desires in keeping my mom with me. I was crushed and this moment was thrust upon me. It was up close and personal in my face. I could not escape it. I held my mom’s unconscious hand and prayed to God for her as well as for me and my sister. I kissed her on her forehead and took a photo of me doing that (The photo here). I knew what had to be done. I remember when Jesus asked God in Luke 22:42 ►”Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”… I had to do what was best for her.
    I told the doctor that I feel it best that she die that night in the confines of the hospital in a semi controlled environment. I asked that she feel NO PAIN whatsoever. He said they will keep giving her morphine so she could be comfortable throughout.
    I called my sister and she came and we were put in a place to initiate her leaving. They gave her the first shot of morphine in her I.V., as I held her hand her breathing was more relaxed and I felt her in a calm. Everything seemed to be a soothing comfort for her, In that aspect I was happy. They came in and took the oxygen from full to the 2% she was on all the time…
    I am not going to drag you through all the particulars, as it was not pleasant, but for the first time since we were kids… Me and my sister sat with each other for about 6 hours and I feel we grew closer. My mom dying helped our relationship. Anyway, she breathed her last breath at 5:20AM on the 10th. It was a Wednesday. She slipped away very calmly and smoothly.

    I love my mom, but I do understand why our lives are short. Each and everyone of us experience these kinds of things. For me, this experience of my mom dying was the worse. I am happy that I am past that experience as everything from that point is down hill. God’s GRAND PLAN will come to a conclusion very soon and I am eager for that to take place. I am 60 years old and that means I get to go home sooner than later. I think about my younger days with my parents… I love that… Sometimes I find myself wishing I could go back, but that means I would have all that I have already experienced still in front of me. As much as I enjoyed growing up I will love it more when we all meet again and from that point we will never again experience anything other than GOOD.

    God bless you all my brothers and sisters… O:)



  25. Something happened to me yesterday and the past 7 months and I can’t shake it! I need to talk about it. So when I first started working for Kinder care even though it wasn’t my dream job as a single mom I cried when they offered me the job because I knew it was a way that I could have my kids with me, they would bus my daughter to school and I could afford it! I didn’t have to rely on anybody else to help me babysit or get my kids to school anymore it was a blessing. I was an infant teacher and I fell in love with everyone of my kids I loved helping out in the big kid classrooms especially with troubled children who always felt misunderstood. My life made a lil sense and seemed a lil less difficult. Until one day I noticed unexplained bruises and marks on my kids they couldn’t explain.. I get it kids get hurt but it was repetitive with no Incident report or anything I was even told by a coworker that she was advised not to give me an Incident report when my son got hit over the head with the truck by another kid. My kid was also on the table top of a built-in picnic table outside and was jumping back-and-forth I was told and fell flat on the back of his head on concrete I wasn’t Informed right away and there was no incident report because they said there was no lump Which from my knowledge with children is most concerning a lump is a good sign most of the time versus if the fall was hard enough and there is no lump there could be internal bleeding. My kid was also potty trained but wore pull ups during naptime they put him in his pull-up around 1145 he fell asleep at noon and when I get off work at 6 They had him in that same pull up he developed rashes and started peeing his pants on the regular. I was getting phone calls from my kids dad on his weekends with his concern about unexplained bruises and him wetting his pants. We fought over this. My blessing had become a nightmare. My daughter also fell outside and scrapped her knee and instead on cleaning it with soap and water they just put a band air over it with rocks and dirt in the cut and it got infected. At work meeting I expressed what was going on with my children and how I needed an incident report for everything that happens even if they stub their toe but it never actually changed anything. I made a decision to go back to relying on friends and family when it was hard on them and pull my kids from the program I almost quit right then and there but I couldn’t leave my students and being a single mom I needed the money Plus these sweet lil babies I cared for each day had my heart as well. Overtime i spoke to my boss about the situations which she seemed to understand but also made me feel very uncomfortable about making the right decisions as a mom to pull my kids out of the program. At one point she told me she wasn’t sure she wanted someone who didn’t support their company to be working there. I told her I support myself at the teacher so I would stay for the kids. That put a big strain our relationship but most days we put a smile on our faces and acted kind to get through the day but I can tell day by day I was treated different now for protecting my kids. Three of my kids in my classroom I am close to their parents and still have conversations with them outside of work and we still talk about arranging get togethers now that I’m not working there. So yesterday I went in to visit and I took a single picture each of me with these three boys to send to their parents to tell them I went and visited them which they all support by the way. And right before I was about to leave I was giving hugs to all my former employees that seemed really excited to see me and say my goodbyes and my old boss Came up to me and told me I can’t be in the building because I no longer work there and that I need to delete the picture immediately in front of her. So I did. I told her I just took a picture to send to their moms to show them I got to visit. But I understood and I didn’t argue and said OK I understand that part I really do as a company and not Bri g a employee anymore but then she proceeded to yell at me and tell me to get out of the building because I asked her why she was so upset with me and why I had to leave I was just coming to visit and say hi to everyone and mind you former employees still come in and visit all the time when I was working there and also peoples family members who shouldn’t be allowed come in and talk for hours it is never been a problem until I came in there yesterday and got drove to tears and ran out of the building like some criminal. I can’t express the look on her face and how she treated me I honestly don’t know how one person could treat someone so badly I literally feel sick inside. I don’t know what to do.


  26. Its about her, she felt threatened she was going to have allegations of abuse, but should be more transparent of the program if she felt their was nothing to hide and confident. They are obligated of privacy protection with pictures, so I get that. It could be she is just holding a grudge because you quit. Anyhow, she was rude, she didn’t follow protocol of writing up the incident reports like she should of, they get enough money, they need to be accountable and transparent for all the kids best interest at heart.!


  27. This YouTuber’s dad walked out on his family when he was 12 years old.

    Now that he’s a father of his own two adult children, he’s created a YouTube channel called “Dad, how do I?” where he posts videos of common tasks you might ask your dad for help with, so that children without fathers can use his videos as a resource.

    I don’t know this man, but he got an instant subscribe from me. What an amazing, selfless thing to do for someone else. It’s stories like these that give me hope for humanity.

    VIRAL EDIT: Wow this blew up, thanks for all the shares! I’ve emailed him directly in hopes that he sees this post and can utilize this momentum to keep expanding his platform.

    From the time I posted this, he’s already doubled his subscribers on YouTube and I couldn’t be more happy for him!
