The weekend:

I hope everyone’s weekend was amazing. Mines was truly amazing. Watching movies and hanging out with the hubby is always nice. And it got me to thinking about life and marriage. We get married because we want to spend forever with someone. And we also see this person as our best friend. But yet I notice couples who don’t like spending time with each other. I’m talking about before COVID started. I have always enjoyed spending time with my husband. I don’t always enjoy his driving but that’s another blog post. Why do we say that this is the person I want to spend the rest of my life with but you don’t like to do things with? I must say that a couple that I know they only go to church together and family functions. Other than that they do things separately. I asked her why is this, and she told me she doesn’t like his interest. I don’t like all my husband’s interests but I do like spending time with him. I’ve learned to appreciate the things that he likes. I can go to the book store and I know my husband would rather be somewhere else but he doesn’t nag me about going. He knows that this is one of my happy places and he likes seeing me happy. I told her here is a thought how about you just go and see why he enjoys these activities. And she did and now she enjoys some of the things that he likes. You never know what you like and don’t like it if you never try. You can discover so much from each other. I’ve learned that just because I don’t necessarily like some of the things that my husband does doesn’t mean that I can’t hang with him. I can bring a book or journal while he is taking pictures or whatever. I now have a deeper connection with my husband because we both like to hang with each other, even if we don’t enjoy the other’s activities.

Book review

Yes yes yes. I love Colleen Hoover. Not because we have the same name, but because her books never disappoint. This book had me on my toes from the beginning to end. This book is about a young girl who witnessed her mother being abused by her dad. She meets an unlikely friend and her life takes a turn. But what happens when you meet someone who turns out to be like your dad. A must read. A true page turner.

Hi:

Hey everyone. I hope your day is great so far. Well, I’m feeling a lot better. I had a sinus infection and it’s almost gone. Today is my friend’s funeral and even though I’m not traveling to attend his funeral I’m happy that they will be broadcasting it for people out of town and those who choose not to go due to COVID. I’m not sad just miss him that’s all. I’m doing better with my emotions. I’m not so emotionally invested in the news like I used to be. I watch things that make me laugh and lighten my spirits now. I know that I can’t control what is happening in the world, but I can control how much attention I give it. I never knew how much it could affect your mental health. So what are your plans for this weekend? Well, my awesome husband suggested that this weekend be a movie weekend. Yes, I love this idea. We are doing nothing but snuggling and watching movies this weekend. Bring on the popcorn and snacks. I haven’t been writing as I should, but I will start back next week. I hope you all have a great weekend.

Tired:

I don’t feel good today. My allergies are kicking my butt bad. Between the sneezing and runny nose, I can’t catch a break. I feel blah to be honest. I’m just tired of my allergies, tired of the news, tired of people dying, and tired of people not caring about others. I’m tired and my emotions are all over the place. So many people have died of COVID but our lovely president is downplaying it as always. I’m just tired of people in government not caring about others. This year is truly exhausting. I hope you all are having a better week than me.

Book review:

I must say that when I received this book, I thought it was going to be just another marriage book. But it wasn’t. It told stories of couples who were dealing with some pretty difficult things. I love the honesty and truth that this book gives. I like how the couples opened up about their problems. This book helps married couples know that they are not the only ones who may be struggling with their marriage.

Death is hard:

Thursday, I lost a really good friend. We grew up together, went to church together, and school. He was someone who had a great outlook on life. He was always the life of the party and was loved so much. He lost his battle with cancer Thursday and Friday was his birthday. This hit me hard. I know that we have are going to die one day but it still hurts nonetheless. As I see and read all the love shown to him on Facebook, it makes me think about what will people say about me when I die? Did I live my life in a way where people will remember me? Did I make a difference in someone’s life? How much joy and encouragement did I bring to someone’s life? I will remember our conversations and the good times that we had during the years. I want people to remember me as being a positive light in their world. I want them to know that I was honest and genuine with all conversations that we had. But most importantly I want them to know that I cared about them. His death is hard but I know that he isn’t in any pain anymore. I’m glad that he was my friend and I always let him know that I love him. Live your life in a way that you will be remembered for the joy, light, and love that you gave.

Happy Friday:

Just my thoughts:

2020 has been one heck of a year. But it also has been a year where people’s true colors have come out. I have never known such hatred and negativity. I have never known so many people stand up and say that they don’t like this group of people. I have never known people to do things to intimated you, just because they can. What is happening to this world? I feel like things are falling apart, to be honest. Where did all this hate come from? Where did all this injustice come from? It hurts to know that we are all in this together but we are so divided. Hate is a powerful thing but so is love. We have got to do so much better. We can’t have white against black. Police against black. We need to come together and do better. I remember this song that we use to sing at church ” This world is not my home, I’m just a passing through. I wish we could get rid of the hate. Just my thoughts.

Sea moss update:

I have been getting quite a few questions sent to me about the sea moss. I have endometriosis and it’s very painful. I get cyst on my ovaries all the time. I have taken medication to help with the pain, but nothing has worked. So I had heard about sea moss and never knew anyone who had endometriosis who has used it. But I wanted to try it because it has so many benefits. And since I have been using it I have no pain from my endometriosis and I haven’t had any cyst on my ovaries. I put it in my tea in the mornings and you can’t taste it. I love it.
