HOLIDAY WEEKEND!!!

 

 

 

 

Did you ever lose the motivation to write?....my life seems so dull lately that I truly have nothing to write about...I have been doing ALOT of journal hopping and just love what other people have to say.....but none of it inspired me to write anything...sad but true...like a writer's block. Very fustrating!!

I have been meaning to show this graphic...but it kept slipping my mind..so here it is... a very nice tribute!!

 

okay then....I do have some news...my son who moved to Tennessee will be here next weekend...he has some paperwork to finish up here and he wanted to visit for a couple of days. Also he is going to help move some rooms around for me.... so I am very grateful for the help. He asked me what I was going to make him for dinner his first night home...I told him we would take him out for a steak dinner...so now he is even more excited...LOL.

Now...the flu has hit my hunnie really bad...he sounds like death warmed over. I feel so bad....but to make matters worse....tonight my head is very stuffy and my chest feels like an elephant is sitting on it. So I think I am in for a rough week...just like him to share the germs...LOL.

Below are some quotes from Martin Luther King Jr....since tomorrow we are enjoying a holiday in his honor....I hope you enjoy it!!!
Have a MARVELOUS monday.
PEACE!!!!

Ten of King’s Quotes
====================

1. If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep
streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed
music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry.  He should sweep streets so
well that all the host of heaven and earth will pause to say,
here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.

2. Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both
impractical and immoral.  It is impractical because it is a
descending spiral ending in destruction for all.  It is immoral
because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his
understanding; it seeks to annihilate rather than to convert.
Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than
love.

3. There is nothing more dangerous than to build a society, with
a large segment of people in that society, who feel that they
have no stake in it; who feel that they have nothing to lose.
People who have a stake in their society, protect that society,
but when they don't have it, they unconsciously want to destroy
it.

4. In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies,
but the silence of our friends.

5. Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things
that matter.

6. Ten thousand fools proclaim themselves into obscurity,
while one wise man forgets himself into immortality.

7. All progress is precarious, and the solution of one problem
brings us face to face with another problem.

8. The good neighbor looks beyond the external accidents and
discerns those inner qualities that make all men human and,
therefore, brothers.

9. Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power.  We have
guided missiles and misguided men.

10. The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in
moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times
of challenge and controversy.

~Martin Luther King Jr.~

Everyone at my hubbies work got the flu but him two weeks agoHE took echenacae and vit c and colloidial silver. He was fine and boy was that  bad one. Even with the antibiotics the people ar still recovering. seems like everyone likes the quiet mundane daily life details just tell what you think is boring. People will read it. Its like being with you every day adn they get to see little peieces of you. Lori

I get those writer block moments a lot ...sometimes nothing of interest is going on in my life and I just have nothing at all to say...so those days I do not even bother trying to write something...

I go through times when I just can't think of what to say or how to say it.

Sorry you and your hunny are sick.
