Something positive to post

  • Posted on January 12, 2010 at 3:46 pm

Friendship isn’t about who you have known the longest.

…but about who came and never left your side.

If…

  • Posted on January 5, 2010 at 3:27 pm

I am not sure what this is so I am just going to say it was deep thought.I wrote it in October according to the file name.
If…

If love were conditional there would be an end.
If life were easy what would the adventure be?
If love were conditional love could never really exist.
If life were an open book what would be worth living for?

True love is not conditional it has no end just a beginning.
Life was not meant to be easy it was meant to be an adventure.
True love knows no condition just the reasons for loving you.
Life is meant to take a day at a time it is the little things that make life worth living.

If love were conditional love would still be waiting on me.
If life were predictable what would we learn?
If love were conditional emotion could not exist.
If life were without love or hate would we feel anything at all?

True love is unconditional because it has become a part of me.
Life is meant to be full of the unpredictable because there is so much to learn.
True love is conveyed by the emotion that we show.
Life is knowing how to love and understanding why hate must exist.

Here’s something to remember when you have negative talk hammering you…

I laughed this morning…

  • Posted on March 20, 2009 at 9:10 am

I was watching The Majestic This morning and this quote: Peter Appleton: “I can’t stand the constant nagging. I’m leaving you, Jerry. I’m leaving you – and I’m taking the monkey with me.” made me laugh out loud. It was was the scene when Jim Carey’s character was leaving the bar after his ‘eventful” day. He actually had a funny-looking monkey he took from his office. Why I find it funny I do not know. I am smiling as I write. I guess I just needed to laugh. The last time I laughed was just a couple of days ago. I laughed when Jaime Curtis said: ” I’m Old. I’m like the Crypt keeper.” (Freaky Friday)

Well, I’m another year older, but don’t feel it yet. My birthdays just seem to blend together since I turned 25. The saying goes I’m 29 again,but I say I’m 25 again.
Have a great day and laugh it will do you some good!

The Google Game

  • Posted on February 27, 2009 at 9:00 am

I got this of of Ashlee’s blog and thought that it would be fun.
Here’s how you do it: Go to Google. Type in your name + the words in the rest of each category. For example, if your name was Sally, you would type in “Sally looks like” and then see what Google could find for you. Of course, sharing is caring, so I want to see your answers as well! Have fun!
Here’s me:
Leslie looks like she’s having to much fun(wonder what fun looks like…)
Leslie looks like you had quite the Holiday(what holiday would that be?)
Leslie looks like a real model in those pictures(but I HATE having my picture taken)

Leslie hates hackers(doesn’t everyone?)
Leslie hates myspace and facebook and all things internet.(why would I have my own website then?)
Leslie hates shopping for anything other than home electronics(Why shop for that stuff when I have a family member who would be more than happy to do it for me?)

Okay one more..
Leslie Feels Blessed.(most days)
Leslie feels there is an unspoken understanding between women with shared or similar experiences.(Amen!)
Leslie feels love and kinship for people everywhere.(That’s me! I am full of love!)
Peace Out!

God’s Life Expectancy Plan

  • Posted on February 27, 2009 at 8:00 am

On the first day, God created the dog and said:

‘Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years.’
The dog said: ‘That’s a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I’ll give you back the other ten?’

So God agreed.

On the second day, God created the monkey and said:

‘Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I’ll give you a twenty-year life span.’

The monkey said: ‘Monkey tricks for twenty years? That’s a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the Dog did?’

And God agreed.

On the third day, God created the cow and said:

‘You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer’s family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.’

The cow said: ‘That’s kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I’ll give back the other forty?’

And God agreed again.

On the fourth day, God created man and said:

‘Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I’ll give you twenty years.’

But man said: ‘Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?’

‘Okay,’ said God, ‘You asked for it.’

So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I’m doing it as a public service.

My to do list…

An Angel says, ‘Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn’t happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice.’

1. Pray
2. Go to bed on time.
3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.
4. Say No to projects that won’t fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health.
5. Delegate tasks to capable others.
6. Simplify and unclutter your life.
7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.)
8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.
9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don’t lump the hard things all together.
10. Take one day at a time.
11. Separate worries from concerns . If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety . If you can’t do anything about a situation, forget it.
12. Live within your budget; don’t use credit cards for ordinary purchases
13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.
14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.
15. Do something for the Kid in You everyday.
16. Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in line.
17. Get enough rest
18. Eat right.
19. Get organized so everything has its place.
20. Listen to a tape while driving that can help improve your quality of life.
21. Write down thoughts and inspirations.
22. Every day, find time to be alone.
23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don’t wait until it’s time to go to bed to try and pray.
24. Make friends with Godly people.
25. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand.
26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good ‘Thank you Jesus .’
27. Laugh.
28. Laugh some more!
29. Take your work seriously, but not yourself at all.
30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).
31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).
32. Sit on your ego
33 Talk less; listen more.
34. Slow down.
35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.
36. Every night before bed, think of one thing you’re grateful for that you’ve never been grateful for before. GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGS AROUND FOR YOU.

WHEW!!! That is quite a tall order; however, with a little help and alot determination I will prevail! After all, what do I have to loose? Nothing. What do i have to gain? Everything!
Romans 8:31

Just thinking out loud

  • Posted on November 19, 2008 at 2:00 pm

Why is death so scary. Ever since I was little I can remember being scared of dying under the knife just falling asleep and not waking up and now that I am older I am not afraid of going under the knife and never waking up. I am afraid of caskets. In fact, I can honestly say I HATE them and those who know me know I don’t hate many things. One of my great unlces passed away rescenly and it took all the courage I could muster to be in the room during the family prayer. When I’ve talked to friends and family about this fear they all have said, “Its understandable.” Why is it understandable? Yes, I’ve lost my children;however, I have a testimony of where they are and that if I don’t comletely gafa it up I will be their mother for eternity. When I followed my Father in Heaven and his son I beleive with all my heart that I raised my hand wthout hesistation and said: yes,I will go and do. I knew then as I know now that death is part of plan ,a necaessary part, in order to become like my Father and Mother in Heaven. My Great Uncle lived a good and full life and now he at peace continuing his work and I feel that I should have been happy for him because he can do so many things he could not do here and I wasn’t. I am now because I thoughts and feelings I have had since his funeral I just feel like I should have felt it before now because of my experiences.

FINALLY!!!

I don’t know why I waited so long to do it because it was cleansing and I found joy in it. I started scapbooking my children’s pictures! it all started with the pictures being put on just white paper with tabs and placed in clear sheet protectors and then I took oodles of pictures to show my friends at girls’ night becase they wanted to see them and because it was a scrapbooking night. I am only did two pages; however, they turned out great and I am sooo proud of myself. It is to bad that only the girls at girls’ night got to see the finished product because they turned out so well. I don’t feel that I am that crafty or creative so to see these pages were like a testimonial that I am crafty and I am creative. ever since girls’ night I have looked at pictures and looked at the paper I have and I have tried to create more page;however, none of the pictures seem to fit the paper. Its okay though because now I want to have a memory book with their pictures so I am not hunting for them inside of a box! What a pain that is!
