Random thought #1: A comment from yesterday’s outing still lingering heavy on my mind. “One person cannot make a difference.” “Since when?” my brain responded. The comment was from a youth in our fair country who believes this. “Sad,” I thought. Guess they did not catch CCN’s hero episode. Where these not all one person who choose to make a difference?
Random thought #2: My grandmother voicing, “this world sure moves fast now, does it not?” To her no one appreciates what they have anymore. Always wanting more, never noticing as they whiz by, what truly they hold. Growing up during the first depression she knows of such things and her favorite things are her photo albums.
Random thought #3: Questions. Wouldn’t it be nice to never hear of another missing child? Why do we need to be reminded to respect military service people? Why no matter where we are in the world do feel the same emotions and yet we continue to believe they are not the same? Why does goodness never make the news?
Random thought #4: I need a hair-cut and what am I going to wear to the basketball game? Has to be blue.
Random thought #5: In this technological world, why do they not just ask if your claiming the rebate on-line? I have 2 trees lying on my coffee table, both hold useless information needed to claim my rebates on-line.
Random thought #6: My dogs are talking to me I know this by their expressions and yet all I get a response to is the word “Out.” Lots of tail wagging and jumping towards the door, only to be followed by heads hung low and stillness. They realized I’m not going out in the pouring rain.
Random thought #7: My story is in my head. There it lies totally complete. Jump out I command you.
Random thought #8: Yesterday I received not one, but three phone calls from good friends; just checking in because they had not heard from me. Friends are the real jewels in life. Cost nothing and bring so much to the journey. I am blessed. My week just got busy, two demand a visit.
Random thought #9: I have to fix that sticky toilet. Dang thing is costing me money. Speaking of money, I need to find health insurance. Cobra runs out in a month.
Random thought #10: I will not lose faith, there is a place for me; a purpose. We all have one, mine is just lost in the pickling brine of my brain right now.
I Close my randomness of this Tuesday with a statement. Congratulations to all who participated in NaNo, winning is not everything though. Sometimes it’s just about playing the game.
To all my followers and those passing by, I have very big shoulders. Feel free to lean on them all you need. One person can make a difference, you are the difference, wave that freak flag and smile.
A peaceful random Tuesday to you…
