Victoria Boyson: Forgive and Fulfill Your Destiny

This is a great article written by Victoria Boyson, I encourage you to read and learn from it.  The act of forgiveness is powerful.  Doctors are now showing us studies where people who have chosen to forgive those who have wronged them - are stronger emotionally and suffer far less physical ill health.

Summer Family Sanity

The summer and sanity sometimes don't go together.

  • Planning trips that really aren't in the budget
  • Sleeping
  • Too much sun
  • Not enough sun
  • Rain - or no rain
  • What movies to see
  • How to prevent the "B" word - Boredom
So let's share ideas on how to survive and have fun at the same time :)


Men - Making Them Feel Special

Okay, Girls,

Let's get together and share what we do to make our man feel special :) Sometimes it seems men get a bad rap - no they're not perfect - but neither are we :)

So, tell us what you do to create that appreciation that they deserve!Follow on Buzz


wow, what to do when a spouse is looking for a job?? I tell ya, it's pretty frustrating!

You see, we started a small business and it has been slllllllllooooooooowwwww getting big - but we will get there - I have faith and hope :) What we need are clients ;)

Anyway, I digress. How to handle a spouse who is looking quite dilliegnetly for a job can be a challenge. Trying to be encouraging is the obvious answer but how encouraging can I really be. I want to buy body lotion and the cats need food - well give the cats to a good home would be my answer but that is not the right answer, if you know what I mean.

He doesn't need to get down and I'm trying not to get down but putting in job apps everyday, day after day ........

Someone has to call and offer him a job, right :)

Thoughts on Fireworks

God is really pretty cool!!!!

I'm watching the firworks on July 4th and I felt such an emotion of appreciation to all the warriers who have fought for my freedom! The brilliance in the night sky was magnificent!

I write for hubpages and as I was thinking of a title for my article the word "montage" popped into my head. Don't know about you, but it is not a word I frequently use so I looked it up and wallah, it was perfect for what I wanted to express. Definition of montage according to the merriam-Webster Dictionary - Definition of MONTAGE
the production of a rapid succession of images in a motion picture to illustrate an association of ideas.

Perfect for my article - Thank you God :) check it out at the following link.

Life is Good - part 2

Yes, life is good. Money is important as we need it to pave our way through a myriad of expenses in life. Having money does not guarantee happiness – it does make life easier when pay bills though ;) Still working on working out our finances, but it’s gonna be okay.

I’ve been counting my daily blessings and what I’m thankful for the past few days to encourage myself – it is working! I have my family, health, a house, a car, a job, I can read & write I’m not crazy (some would argue with that one….), and you know what, I actually like myself! Not in an uppity conceited way but finally coming to the conclusion that I am okay – what is it I have heard Joyce Meyer say, "I'm not where I need to be, but thank God I'm not where I used to be. I'm OK, and I'm on my way!" How true is that!!! (If you’ve never listened to her I encourage you to do so)

What does that really mean? Think back to the dumb things you’ve done in your life – some of us have more than others…. – and look at how you have learned what not to do. As a middle school teacher, I have told my students that it is okay to make mistakes as long as we learn from them! A person who is unwilling to learn or admit mistakes is actually a miserable person. Why is it so hard for someone to say, “oops, I did it, it was my fault”. The person who doesn’t admit to errors makes it very difficult for others to be around them and they are quite lonely people (isn’t that a song by Paul McCartney? Will have to check)

Back to the “list” - actually, I had so many things I am thankful for that I ran out of space and got fed up of writing – but you get my message here.

Don’t quit, things can change suddenly for us – we need to keep a positive outlook as who wants to be around a grump 

Till next time, BJC~
