I am still Me


"Look at me

I am still me

I may not look or act like I did years ago, But I am still me.

When I am scared,

I may cry

I may wander.

Reassure me, talk with me.

When I am frustrated,

I may scream

I may strike out.

Let me know I am safe; explain to me what I should do.

When I am cold or hungry,

I may yell

I may be restless.

Help me find comfort; ask me what I like to eat.

Look at me,

I am still me.

I just need your help now to guide me, to comfort me.

Throw back days..

So I have decided to do throw back days for the next week. Each day I will share some old photos with you..I think that now with the world of computers,we tend not to look at the old photos like we used to when they were all in a album. I have made four memory books and they are out sitting in the living room for everyone to see, and they do get looked at more then the 1000's of pictures on my computer.

Here's the few:

Had A Great Day...

Well spent sometime today with two special little ladies.. They came to make cards but once they got here, they were side tracked by Trevor and Bailey. We did manage to get a card made.. Some of the things these two come up with is just too funny, and the things they say is even funnier..they love that the dogs are small and they can drag them around with them where ever they go , I am thankful they are very good dogs and have very good temperament. Thanks Again

 Even Bailey wanted to make cards..

Thank you Julie..

Its the little things in life that make life big..

I had a great visit with a good friend this morning.. Thanks Julie for the rose.. really made my day..

So I am not the only one who sings or dances...

I went to Home Depot today and as u come I the door the young guy working there was dancing up a storm.. Good on him.. Not everyone likes their job or had a great day especially when you deal with the public but he was making the best of it.. I gave him a thumbs up and went in my way.. I have to say every experience I have had at Home Depot had been a good one.. Good in them for training their workers well and for the workers for being the way they are.. Thumbs up for Home Depot..

Singing and Popping...

Have you ever drove down the road and saw someone either singing, popping their head or swaying to music..what goes through your mind when you see this.. Do you think this person is crazy, is either having a good day , or is on some cheap drugs lol.. 
Well today I was that person. We have had a shity winter, and today was beautiful.. It was sunny and the temperature was in the double digits. I was on my way home from town I was listening to some music on my jump drive.. When the song  by The Pointer Sisters " Suger Pie Hunny Bunch"" came on and well I just couldn't help myself.. I was singing and popping, music was cranked, and no I wasn't on any cheap drugs... I was just in a really good mood and it was a beauitful day... I am sure we have all had those days where we have done this.. I will say though the guy in front of me for sure thought I was crazy he kept looking in his rear view mirror and when we had to stop just starred at me.. Too funny.. People that went by just kind of looked at me..
