Time for change

Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy. 

Spend time with people who are good for your mental health.

When some people begin to experience a degree of success, they become overly confident of their own abilities. They behave as if no one else in the world can do what they do. That is to say, they get an exaggerated sense of their own importance and are puffed up with pride, making it difficult for most people to work with them. 
These swollen-headed types also usually cease learning. Why shouldn't they? Don't they already know everything in their FIELD ? Despite their talent, they lose their talent, they lose their usefulness. They tend to do little but think about themselves. Instead of singing the hymn " How Great Thou Art," their words sound like "How Great I Am." 
Here is a simple formula for humility, I found that we need to RECOGNIZE: 
God created this universe, including us, and
God shows that he is much more powerful than we are by what he does and has done in our world, and 
God gives each of us abilities that we cannot supply to ourselves or explain our worthiness of,

Being A Mother

I do believe I am a good mother. I try to stay out of my children's way. I try to give them information because I worry, but you can't figure out all of their problems for them. You can only assist.          
Smart mothers know that cross words will come from time to time, cloud the sunny experiences we want for our children. So when nerves get frazzled, step back, take a breather and bank on the most important yet simplest guidelines of all:  Just love them.

Go ahead and be a nice Guy!

Nice Guys finish first! That's what my Mom would tell me and I have passed it on to my sons. 

  Whoever started the rumor that nice guys finish last must have been a thug or a thief or even possibly a liar because to me it's not true.  Nice guys finish first in all life's most important places. A nice guy like you can quickly find support in times of need. And he sure will be trusted for doing that in all phases of life. I would tell young men, " tell the truth, don't lie to me". If I know the truth I will stand with you. I say that to my grandchildren as well. A nice guy doesn't have to buy favors or friendships. God rewards nice guys with peace of mind that can only come with a clear conscience. Nobody ever looks at a nice guy with distaste and say they don't know how you sleep at night. So if you want to feel good and continue throughout your life. Sleep at night, and continue to be a nice guy. 
That's my advice.

Stay Humble Sons

Lack of humility will eventually lead to humiliation.

Have a Happy Everything

May you always know how appreciated you are.
May you never forget what a blessing you've become to a world that could use more people like you.
May you reap the rewards of kindness. 
May your sunshine always shine through.
May love walk by your side. 
May friendship sing in your smile. 
May opportunity remember to knock on your door and surprise you once in a while. 
May your memories be ones that you wouldn't trade for anything. 
May your hopes and dreams find ways of coming true.

That's why I dearly wish Happy Everything for you!

My Son bought me donuts

I am at my #2 sons house for a graduation. My oldest grand will be graduating from middle school tonight. We arrived a few days ago, so I didn’t actually get to see the family until the next morning. I don’t know but every time I get in this state I crave donuts. Son has such a busy schedule with gym work outs, coaching B.B., Football and everything else he does. I asked him to bring me some donuts. Everyday he has some excuse. “Ma they’re closed, they even ran out of donuts or the worst excuse was, “ you don’t need no donuts.” Whaaaaaaat? I didn’t tell you that when you were coming up and asked for something, did I? I even ask him, “do you love your Mama?” Now you Moms out there know it’s the principle of the matter, I asked and know you should try and respond in a favorable manner. I didn’t ask you for the nutritional value of a donut. I wanted to see if you would grant your Mama her wish. That’s all...
Others in the home, brought me donuts, but I wanted them from my Son!
But TODAY, my son #2 heart brought his Mama the donuts. I smiled from ear to ear & kissed him real bigly too! I know he loves me and I know too that he will give me what I ask for.  Even the non nutritional, fattening, sweet not good for diabetics donuts. I’m in heaven.
Thank the Lord for my sons! A blessing they are to me. Amen.

School shooting again! Damn. Damn. Damn.

I am getting very worried about my grandchildren, all of our children trying to learn in school. Attacks with weapons on innocent Young babies. Stop it. Stop it..  What's happening? Stupid people all around here. Yes I know mental illness is real. And it appears which is not new among our young as well.  You know if your child has an anger problem, why would you let them have access to a gun? Something is wrong with you. I'm mad. I am tearful. I hate this! I want my grandchildren next to me right now! They don't attend urban schools! They go to school where they are a minority. Yes with racists too.  Each of my grands have had incidents at school, from my 8 year old to my now 13 year old! Ok I'm off the subject. Our government need to do something about these shootings NOW.  Stop with the politics. THIS IS BAD! 

Mad & Upset,

NFL draft 2018 changes

Last week was draft week was in Arlington, TX. This is the first year the draft was held at an NFL stadium. AT&T Stadium proved to be a great choice. The NFL invited 80 prospects going in the draft. Prospects in the past were called Rookies, my how things change. And since they had ample room to showcase the draftees they did. When Donovan was drafted they invited 8 Rookies! Wow. This year they invited 80. The NFL experience was fantastic. In last weeks draft, teams seemed to be saying younger is better when it came to top pics. 17 of the 32 players selected in the first round was 21 &  younger. It's a continuation of a trend. I guess the younger prospects have left college early - in fact, those who stayed in school have often garnered the bigger headlines. So the increase in top drafted underclassmen isn't completely explained by the overall increase in players declaring. After eligibility was granted for underclassmen, NFL coaches praised now for knowledge of the college game were still stating a general preference for seniors. Apparently younger draftees perform better. 
But what about the age at the games most important position, quarterback? This is the one position where pros and cons of age are arguably most balanced. Older QBs may be ready to slot into an offense right away if that's what a team needs, while other teams may have the luxury of letting a younger player carry the clipboard for a while. So for a QB age is even more important. 
Great observation from FiveThirtyEight. A good read, don't you think?
