Day 14: I love people.

I just saw a post on social media that triggered my “crazy” I guess you could say.

Let me tell you something you should know about me, I love people. I don’t care about their color or ethnicity. I’m actually very intrigued and have always loved learning about cultures.

And the older I get, the more it bothers me to my very depths to hear someone say something about another human being based off things they was BORN with.

Now there is trashy people out there. But you should take people bad decisions and base it off of every individual that is of that color or ethnicity.

THAT is just ignorance.

And if you are any kind of person that has a believe in God, you should think before you speak, because you are mocking the place God decided to put this soul he created.

Growing up I had to deal with a lot of this bigotry first hand. To the point my life was at risk.

I don’t talk about it a lot and I don’t let people know a lot because of it.

But one thing I did learn from it, is to get to know someone before you judge them based off of things that will just make you look shallow.

I won’t say I am innocent, but I will say I know better and am growing away from a lot. We don’t need that trash in the world.

Day 13: Political thought

Honestly, I’m sick of a lot that has happened. There is a line being crossed.Yeah I believe some of the things Trump has done needed to be done, but not as far as he has taken them.Yes he is still the President and for that I will have a amount of respectBut I’m sick of it.. take down your titles of what party you’re apart of and actually listen to what is coming out of these politicians mouths and what they are actually doing.And the up coming candidates… I see no promise in them. If they could stop acting like children and actually talk about real issues instead of focusing on each other that would be great.We need a change,less drama, and “he said she said” crap. We need more action in taking care of what is going on.Adults should not be acting like high schoolers. Instead grow up.Let’s take care ofOur homeless. Why do we allow our people to live on the streets, yet tear down available empty buildings? Throw away clothes? Throw away money on useless objects?Our families going without food. Do you know how hard food and are fighting to keep food going out to those in need? And don’t judge because.Yes they have jobs, yes they are hard workers, yes they NEED help.Our borders WITHOUT harming and separating families..I’m sorry, but yes it needs to be taken care of, but this is 2019 we can be more civil.Our schools that can’t even afford books. The kids are forced to use old out of dated technology that will not help them in the real world, the teachere are working beyond hours where they are even getting paid just to teach more than one subject to a rang of ages.Our jobs that are going right back to why unions was created in the first place. With low pay that doesnt keep up with economical prices,long hours, and crap benefits that take half pay checks to cover anyway.There is more going on that our energy can be focused on besides spending our resources on something because “I don’t like them”.Grow up, you want to end bullying?Stop being bullies.You want change? Be the changeYou want something done? Go do itBecause our leaders seem to be to busy throwing hissy fits and arguing. Making decisions only to poke the bear they want to annoy.They shouldn’t be using each other to buy our votes. They should be showing us how they will help our country. Grow our country.We don’t need this ” he did this and it was mean, so I’ll do this.” Just shut up.. you sound like me at age 9 going to my mother justifying why my sister and I was pinching each other and saying nasty things.Do I think I could do a better job? I don’t know.But I do know I can keep my mouth shut.As child my parents taught me actions speak louder than words.That words have the power to either give life or take one so I better choose them wisely.That giving soup to a friend who is sick is better than just saying “get well.”.That giving money to the poor is better than ignoring them and buying a shirt to add to the 20 I have.As a child I knew these basic things.. and yet I see grown adult standing in front of the nation taking someone’s illness and making it a joke to gain votes…I’m sick of it. I no longer want to hear it. Shut up and start doing something.

Day 12: Don’t forget the other half

You know I see this picture above and think wow.

It is beautiful in a way and does bring awareness.

But then there are the comments that are posted with this picture…

And it makess me think there should be one for dad’s too.

Just thinking of my husband I can see a lawnmower, vehicle up keep, house repairs, demands of a job, house work, volunteer responsibilities, snow plow, chasing a toddler, wood, helping parents etc

I think that yes women have a load, but you shouldn’t be so selfish that you forget the other half.

My husband carries just as much as I do.

Men are human too. They need gratitude too. They need recognition.

And as we press forward for EQUAL rights, we need to make sure they are in fact equal.

Do you see how one sided things have become.

Cheer on mom’s sand dad’s.

Make sure we are leaning on each other and not against each other pushing one down..only to not help them back up.

Day 11: When the wind blows

This isn’t going to be any good, but I will have to make it up to you.

Two trees fell in high winds we found when coming home from a weekend at camp.

The one barely scrapped the house.

The other one uprooted just behind it.

What’s funny is, I have been telling my husband that first tree needed to be cut, that it was going to fall in the house.

As expected he argued it wouldn’t and let it go.

THIS is why you should hear your spouse out ladies and gents.

Oh well, at least the house is alright.

Day 10: Beautiful Soul

Oh beautiful soulDon’t you see how much you are lovedDon’t you see there is more up aboveOh beautiful soulDon’t you know you are previously, carefully made.Don’t you know there is more than this maze.Oh beautiful soulDon’t you see the then good emotional gameDon’t you see that there is things you can help tameOh beautiful soulDon’t you know the world had a beautiful beginningDon’t you see in the end there will be mending.Oh beautiful soulDon’t you see that there is more than just youDon’t you see you can help spread the light and give someone else a clueOh beautiful soulDon’t you feel the light that is ment to shine with in youDon’t you see that you can help the harsh one in the blueOh beautiful soulDon’t you see that there is more to storyDon’t you see you just need to hold on to the gloryOh beautiful soul,Know you are beautiful and there is so much to live for in this world at war. Please know it to your very core.

Day 9: Photography through my eyes.

Through the eyes of a camera lense is life yet to be discovered by some. The realness that we all hope to find in relationships.That’s why I like raw photography. Nothing is fake about it.You may have noticed I take a lot of pictures of the outdoors.I love it.This is one of the first pictures I took outdoors.I had a camera I had just bought. I worked and saved for that little Kodak.I remember I was at a lake in Suches, Georgia. Seventeen and full of hope and aspirations. I was there with an old friend I had not seen in 6 years, we had gotten finished swimming out by the dock. He handed me this flower.When I took this photo after throwing the flower off into the lake, I was captivated by this gorgeous natural mirror. The mirror seem to make the flour look as if it was floating in the sky.That’s when I new I had a thing for photography, for taking pictures of Gods artwork.My nephew at 3 years old got ahold of that camera and smashed it, so I’ve been taking pictures with cellphones since.But, I have to say, without editing them, I’ve gotten some pretty damn good photos. And with each a discriptive story.Here are some of my favorite. You may have seen them before.Sunset and sunrise is something common. You will see. Everyone of them different and unique.It’s amazing and breath taking to me how God’s paintbrush sets those colors across the sky.Some moments I just set back and say ” thank you God for the beauty I get to enjoy almost everyday.”Even on a cloudy day in the fall, the woods look darker making the leaves colors pop in an awesome way that’s not replicable.One day I’ll get a camera and capture it all. But until then, I hope you enjoy my little phone camera pictures.

Day 8: A Women who is “Old Fashion”

I just don’t understand, women are standing up for women’s rights, yet mocking a women for being modest and staying home.

I don’t wear revealing clothes, I never have. I remember in middle school some girls walking behind me making fun of how many undershirts I had on under a shirt, covering my cleavage.

I didn’t understand it. Why was it their problem? I never said a word about their clothes.

Now as an adult I see grown people doing the same thing those girls did in to me in school. On the news, for all to see.

Hasn’t the world become so revealing that it should be nice to keep somethings, special?

I’ve seen women showing off their beautiful skin because “it’s my body.”

Sweet, good for you. It’s your life.

I don’t wear revealing clothes, because it is MY body. It’s all mine.

I don’t want anyone else seeing it, besides my husband. It’s like a piece of candy that I kept secret from my sisters, just so I can enjoy it.

Why do I have to show off my body to stand up for women’s rights?

It’s mine.

It’s not a trap I’ve fallen into because my ancestors started something.

I have my own brain to think with, that’s what you preach right?

And I think this gift of a body God has given my soul while I’m here on earth is valued.

My body is a treasure that I don’t want anyone else seeing.

Yup, I’m a believer in modesty.

Secrets keep the mind intrigued and wanting after all right?

Why would I want to let you know all that there is.

Social media is already so revealing of my feelings, parties I attend, my family life, etc.

I don’t need to show off my body.

I also believe if I want to keep a house and have a meal on the table for my husband, who works SO hard for our family… that’s our business.

But since mocking families like ours is a thing too let me just tell you.

No it’s not the 1940’s, but there is still a such thing as showing someone you love them and their time they spend away working hard is valued.

Our marriage is a team effort. I handle some things , he handles others. He helps me and I help him.Together we make our house a home.

Yes I stay at home, because WE decided to have a child and she is OUR child to raise, not the responsibility of others.

Not the teacher, the day care worker, Grandma, Nanna, Auntie, Uncle. No it’s the parents job.

Not to mention, look at the wages offered and the cost of childcare. They put families in debt.

So, why is it the smart thing for both parents to go earn a paycheck only to give all of it to childcare, plus a percentage of the others check?

Hmmm, is a women like me really “old fashion” or is it just a bother that we don’t fit your mold.

Stop judging. Families/ other women do what they have to for THEIR family, and it’s none of your business, it really isn’t.

Cheer on decency, it’s a beautiful thing this world needs more of.

Cheer on working hard.

Cheer on working together.

Cheer them on.
