I'm not judgemental....really....9:35 AM
I try hard not to judge others, because honestly, I wouldn't like being judged myself. I don't think it's our place to do that, am I right???
But sitting in my car this morning, waiting for the bell to ring so Jasmine could go in, we were both sitting there wondering why some women would allow themselves to be seen in public, a certain way.
I'm not conceited and I definitely don't think I'm pretty or sexy or anything, but I do like to make myself presentable, at least.
You know there's something wrong when a 7 year old turns her nose down at some things. Just in the 10 minutes we were there, we saw a lady wearing a robe, one with her hair sticking out in all directions while rubbing her eyes, one in pj's and slippers, one with a t-shirt and shorts SO short that Jasmine asked me why she was only wearing a shirt and underwear.
I don't know these ladies, and I'm sure they have excuses for the way they looked, but come on, shouldn't you get up a little earlier so that you can at LEAST brush your hair or throw on some sweatpants??? That's all I'm saying to that!!!
I'm not even going to point out that my template is YET again different. I got up this morning and low and behold, everything was gone....I don't know if it's my computer or the beta blogger or what it is, but I'm going to be working on my computer today and making sure everything is fixed, hopefully this is the last time you see a change, at least until Christmas.
Last night I sat up and watched 9/11, the documentary that was on CBS, and hence my post earlier this morning, honoring the firefighters.
It was the first time that I had gotten a look INSIDE the events, what it was like to be in tower 1, when the second one came tumbling down. What it was like to be standing there and then hearing the rumbling sound, looking up and seeing the second tower quickly falling to the ground, people running, screaming and then darkness, dust and quiet. THAT is what got to me the most, the deafening silence.
If you didn't get a chance to watch it last night, I suggest you do when you get a chance, it's just extraordinary and gives you an insight into the last moments for the victims of 9/11. I know I'll NEVER be the same since that day.
My MIL starts chemotherapy today, so if you get a chance just say a little prayer that she does well with it and most importantly that the chemotherapy is able to shrink down the cancer. I'm still feeling a calm about the whole situation, and I'm thankful to God that I am.
The peace of God . . . will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. —Philippians 4:7You know that when we keep our minds on God, God will keep our mind's at peace. He's done that for me through this and through so many ups and downs.
I'm having a bit of a struggle in my marriage right now. The stubbornness in me seems to peak when I have a disagreement with my husband, and instead of letting it go, I seem to want to yell and complain and whine about it all, even to the point of deliberately picking a fight with him just to get the LAST WORD.
This weekend was no different, we were at each other's throats, but by Sunday morning, I woke up and before getting out of bed, I called out to God...asking Him to guide me through this day, to set mouth guards on my lips and to help me do and say what is right. Within a few minutes I started thinking about all the wonderful things my husband does for me and for us as a family, I thought about the times he takes the kids to the park, takes out the trash without me nagging, offers to help me clean the house and watches the kids every night for about an hour, so that I can take my shower, lay in bed and read or watch a little bit of TV.
THAT is who I married and THAT is what I need to concentrate on. We all have our bad days and the Lord knows I'm not perfect, by no means. I just need to remember to stay calm and choose my battles, some things are NOT worth fighting about.
Before I head out, I want to point you in the direction of my food blog, I've uploaded the recipe for my soup and I'm also participating in the Menu Plan Monday feature, hosted by Laura at "I'm an Organizing Junkie". Along with my menus for this week, you'll also find the recipe for tonight's dinner "Tortellini Alfredo". Enjoy :)
Hope you're all having a wonderful Monday, God bless!!!
Tortellini Alfredo, Garlic Bread and a Salad. For dessert I'm making Chocolate Mousse.
