Hello everyone - Hope you all had a Great Christmas. I sure did. Very low stress. Just like I like it.
Grandchildren sure keep it fun. My favourite moment was on Christmas day. We were just hanging out at Missy and Sean's. The movie "A Christmas story" was on the TV and it was the scene where Ralphie says the F word. Kaleah turns to me and says " Kai Said Fuck" I busted out laughing and almost spilled my wine. Sean turns to Kaleah and says sternly " Kaleah don't say that word, say the F-word"
I turned to my grandson and asked him " You said the F- word?" he shrugged his shoulders as if to say maybe, or so what . I not sure.. I then asked him where he heard the F- word? Does his friend Joey say it?. He shakes his head no. Who do you know says that? He slowly points to his Mom.
Heehee Sorry Missy. I take the blame for that one. I cussed like a sailor in front of Miss when she was kid. I lacked any kind of self control, unlike my Father who apparently had tons of self control
When i was dating Missy's Dad he told me once that my Dad had gotten pissed while they worked on his car. He said: Your Dad was mad and it was all F- this , F- that. I said ' You are such a liar- My dad doesn't say the F-word" I never heard my Father say the F-word in my life. Then I realized that he worked with a bunch of men as a mechanic and of course he said the F-word but he was a gentleman and no matter how mad he got he never went there in front of of kids. As many of you know, my house could get totally CRAZY and him saying the F-word in the mist of all that drama would have been understandable. But he never did To this day that still amazes me.
When Kai was 3 or maybe he was just 2 ( its seems like a long time ago.) he talked about cussing all time. Once while waiting in the car a passerby was having a lively argument on their cell phone and was cussing up a blue streak as they walk by. Kai informs his mom at that moment " I am going to say bad words when I grow up" Missy and Sean goofing around one day asked him "if he was to say a bad word what would he say?" He hesitated. They assured him that he wouldn't be in trouble but that he was allowed to say it only once. They both assumed it would be the dreaded F-bomb but he broke out with "SON OF A BITCH" Putting the emphasis correctly on the Bitch. : )
The creator of this blog and my coworker / nephew has been accepted into the Nursing program at Univ. of Humbolt. He will be leaving us the first of the year. Luke is a wonderful and sweet guy that is is loved by everyone. He is always the first to step up and lend a helping hand in the warehouse or in our office. We will miss his fun sense of humor , genuine goodness and his wealth of knowledge. He is our go to guy for anything technical and a computer genius too.
Yesterday I was sitting on the floor of my cubicle trying to figure out why my speakers weren't working. Luke walked by and said " Can I help?" I said " I cant figure out why my speakers are not working." Luke pushed the mute button on my keyboard and said" your mute was on" This is not an example of how he is a computer genius rather an example of how lost I will be without him.
Good luck Lukey my friend. I just know you will make a great nurse someday.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond imagination. It is our light more than our darkness which scares us. We ask ourselves – who are we to be brilliant, beautiful, talented, and fabulous. But honestly, who are you to not be so?
You are a child of God, small games do not work in this world. For those around us to feel peace, it is not example to make ourselves small. We were born to express the glory of god that lives in us. It is not in some of us, it is in all of us. While we allow our light to shine, we unconsciously give permission for others to do the same. When we liberate ourselves from our own fears, simply our presence may liberate others.’
