There are 5.4 million people who have Alzheimer's. It cost 183 billion dollars in annual costs. Alz's is the 6th leading cause of death.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
1 John 4: 9-10

Don't Stress Over The Little Things

Do you get really mad when one of the kids spills or knocks over something? I never have or did. I always just say "Clean It Up". My dad used to have a hissy fit if we spilled something. It was scary. I think that is why I never did. But I must be getting old.
Tonight I decided to rearrange the furniture. That is a big deal for me because I am usually just wanting to lay down and relax. But for some reason I was wanting to do something differant. When I moved the sofa there was the biggest dried up spot under it. I mean it was big. Looked liked someone sit a full glass down on the floor and kicked it over than just left it under there. For some reason that really made me mad. No one was home but mom and I. So I could think about it a lot while I was trying to get the stain off the carpet. Our carpet is old and nasty anyway but I think what made me mad was who ever did it just left it there. They did not whip a bit of it up. It was hard and thick and dark. I used 6 wash cloths and it is still there. I wanted to text my son and ask him what happend , why is there a big stain under the sofa, why did you leave it there. I almost did 2 or 3 times . I started to than I stopped. Than I thought, Do I want to text my perfect son that helps me pay the bills and buy groceries and helps me with mom when I ask . My perfect son who has never been in trouble. Except for skipping school once. My perfect son who is in his 3rd year of college with no help from me.Just to ask him about a spot under the sofa. No I don't . I'll wait till he gets home. LOL!


  1. LOL! So your son can read it here! (I am not sure my relatives read my blogs.)

    Our carpet cleaner left streaks on the rug. Probably I had the wrong setting when I cleaned the carpet.


  2. He does not read it. I have tried to get my family to read it but they don't that I know of. They never leave comments if they do. I have so friends that do. Lots of friends. Can't live with out them.


Thanks for visiting my blog and I love reading your comments. Please come back soon. Karen
