Random Thoughts from My Current Life

  • Finding joy in the little things becomes easier the more you focus on one day at a time!
  • We all need to remember that we have NO idea what others are going through unless we’ve walked in their shoes, and even then, everyone’s experience is unique.
  • Hope is as necessary as air and water. 
  • A pedicure or some new shoes really CAN make me happy! (At least for a little while!)
  • Being away from your family for too long sucks. Hug them A LOT if they live close.❤️
  • Good coffee and good toilet paper are worth paying a higher price!
  • All elected officials should be required to spend a month at the world’s largest cancer hospital.  I’m pretty sure health care would be figured out or at the very least, they would be working TOGETHER to get it right.
  • Life is way too short for pettiness.
  • There are many kind and caring people in the world, and they come in all shapes, sizes, colors, levels of education, religious views, income levels, and sexual orientation. 
  • Nothing much tastes better than a home-grown tomato sandwich.🍅
  • A day spent with my toes in the sand looking out at the ocean would fix a lot.🏖
  • Music is good for the soul. 
  • Cancer and all its treatment side effects are awful and need to just go away.  There’s plenty of other sadness in the world.🎗
  • There is nothing as draining as being at a medical facility for an entire day (or many days or many days & nights).
  • A decent glass of wine can make a day better. 🍷
  • Pets are a pain sometimes (think hair everywhere and vet bills), but they are COMPLETELY worth it for their comfort, love, and entertainment.🐶
  • Essential oils work. 
  • Sheet-caking seems like a really good idea! 🎂
  • Being kind is easy and makes you feel better. 
  • Watching someone you love suffer sucks. 
  • Knowing someone you love is suffering, and you can’t help sucks. 
  • Eating real food, exercising, and de-stressing is good for you and will improve your health dramatically. 
  • Gardening is a great hobby but not when the heat index is over 100. 🌱🌸
  • We need to stop with all the toxins in our products, food, water, etc. We are hurting ourselves and our children much more than we realize. 
  • Don’t ever give up!!! 
  • The more prayers the better. 🙏
  • Dreams change with life, but you have to keep dreaming. 
  • Road rage is stupid!!!😡
  • Sports players and celebrities make way too much money. 
  • Teachers and nurses don’t make enough money. 
  • Being a caregiver is a hard job!
  • I have more friends than I realized. 😊
  • Real books are still the best, and libraries are one of my favorite places. 📚
  • If we worked together more, things would be better.  
  • Love trumps hate. 

Be kind and find joy y’all! 💕
