JUST ANOTHER DAY…

in “JILL’S WORLD”!!!  Sun., 6/15/14…

HAPPY FATHERS DAY, 2014!!!  Ready or not… HERE WE GO…

OMG!!! You… “HAVE GOT” … to be kidding me!!!  DOUBLE OMG, OMG!!!  WHERE TO BEGIN… think, Think, THINK!!! (Thinkin’ about Pooh Bear)  😉  Okay, I will start this post with the fact that my, poor, Poor, POOR husband has been somewhat “ILL” lately.  Gastrointestinal problems (Pppsssttt… “diarrhea”) for about a week now.  🙁

Poor Chris.  He has been sick, Sick, SICK!!!  OH no, No, NO!!!  (Sorry folks, I’m drifting.)  :/  So anyways, I heard bits of a story he told both kids the other day.  Something about having a sick stomach “episode”.  (“IF”… you know what I mean) while driving along… IN HIS CAR ( “IF”… you know what I mean!!!)  And then something about a public restroom…somewhere… where he had to pass by other “PEOPLE”  on his way to the “PUBLIC” restroom at this gas station/convenient store that also has a fruit/souvenir/gift shop area for the tourists.  Well, there were LOTS of tourists/people there “THAT” morning.  I guess the people there could… “SENSE” (smell)… him walking by…on his way to the restroom!!!  Poor Chris has NOT felt very good at all, BUT… he still had to work, Work, WORK.  WHAT A TROOPER!!!

 He is, thankfully, feeling better today… FATHERS DAY.  FINALLY!!!  I had gotten Chris a very nice, dog-tag-type necklace with a cross and The Lord’s Prayer scripted on the… “dog-tag”.  VERY NICE!!!  I had to sneak into our bedroom closet while Chris was…”resting” and watching tv… to get this necklace so the kids could “gift” their father…on Fathers Day!!!

Oh yeah, did I mention that I also bought a cross bracelet for my son, Chase, while shopping at the men’s  jewelry counter in JC Penney’s here at the Ponce De Leon Mall in St. Augustine, FL?  Yep, there were two (2) jewelry boxes in that bag as I, sneakily, retrieved “a” gift box from the bag … in our bedroom closet…as Chris lay there, feeling sick…BUT… better!!!

UNBEKNOWNST TO ME… I grabbed the wrong “gift” box!!!  We summoned Chris out to the living room and sat there watching as he…”OPENED”… the WRONG gift!!!  OMG!!!  Are you kidding me???  OH no!!!  What to do now???  The “necklace” was for Chris… for Fathers Day.  The bracelet was for Chase… for…???  I had NOT decided what exactly it was for or when to “gift” it!!!  So I stood up, boldly, walked over and snatched that bracelet right out of Chris’ hands!!!  There was, simply, no way to “FIX” the mistake I had just made!!!  So,I gave Chris the “OTHER” gift box to open.  Talk about an elephant in the room!!!  We all sat around… dumbfound… everyone with a confused look on their face… wondering, but not knowing… who that bracelet was for!!!  And for what occasion?

Oh, the discomfort… was palpable!!!  Yep, Chase ended up getting his new silver bracelet with a gold cross on each bracket… TODAY!!!  ON FATHERS DAY!!!  :/  Welcome to “MY” world, folks!!!  So, SOOOooo funny!!!  I think both kids enjoy our frequent trips… to “JILL’S WORLD!!!  Oh, the stories they can tell!!!  “THAT”… scares me!!!

This day could have easily been ruined by my… “flighty”… mistake… AGAIN!!!  I Thank God for my family… DAILY!!!  We choose to laughinstead of cry or yell… as much as possible!!!  AMEN.

I hope all you #1 dads had a HAPPY FATHERS DAY, 2014!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!  Amen.

 

Memories…

This one’s for you, Laura… (My sister, Laura, verbally recounts these old stories… HYSTERICALLY!!!)  Yep, she’s a talker and can tell a funny story.  I, on the other hand, am a writer and can write a funny story.  😉

OMG, folks.  If you could only imagine  the SIGNIFICANCE that word, “MEMORIES,” has in my life.  Perhaps it means something special to everyone.  Not sure.  To me, “MEMORIES”… are mental photographs… of “LIFE”.  The significant ones… LAST A LONG, LONG TIME. 

I am currently drifting back in time, sorrowfully but gratefully, to the memory of me singing “MEMORIES,” by Barbara Streisand in the HUGE waiting room/area while hospitalized at St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo, OH.  WOW, folks.  “THAT” … fills both of my eyes with tears.

So… “THAT” day at the hospital…was a “GOOD” day.  There were a few visitors, family and friends, who were all there at the same time.  Enough “visitors” that we all had to “visit” down in the BIG waiting room/area.  “Light” music could be heard, overhead.  I WAS SO HAPPY THAT DAY!!!  Now, it just-so-happened that “Memories,” by Barbara Streisand, started to play over the intercom.  HA!  I  K-N-E-W   THAT SONG!!!  Now, just remembering the song was a GREAT sign due to the head injury I had sustained.  I then, however… started singing… “THAT” song, “MEMORIES,” by Barbara Streisand!!!  In that HUGE waiting room/area.  DOUBLE HA, HA!!!

Now, I can remember this specific event!!!  I was having a “GOOD” day.  Special people were there to see me “THAT” day.  “I”… was… “HAPPY”.  My never ending pain was, undoubtedly, “under control” at that moment.  I, vividly, remember “THAT” song playing in the waiting room “THAT” day.  “OH, HAPPY DAY!!!”  I felt so “HAPPY,” as a matter of fact, that I began singing the words of that song ( “Memories,” by Barbara Streisand)… “LIGHTLY”… to myself.  Oh yeah… I remember.  “THIS”… was a… “GOOD” day…

Much later… after I had been released home, permanently, from the Rehab. Center… it appeared that “THIS” specific… “MEMORY”… of me singing “MEMORIES” in the waiting room of St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo, OH had been charred as a memory into the minds of all who were there ( EVEN the “visitors” who were there “visiting” OTHER patients)!!!  See, my “senses” were a bit “off” due to the head injury.  I didn’t see things correctly, taste things correctly, hear things correctly, feel things correctly, or say things correctly.  I didn’t “THINK” correctly.  “LIFE” was especially “DIFFICULT” then.  And it would remain such for a very LONG time. ( I am tearing-up, folks).

So, my “senses” were a bit “off,” okay?  Well, just how “OFF” were they?  Folks, I swear I remember “THAT” day to “THIS,” very day AND… I really thought I was singing along to that song… “MEMORIES,” by Barbara Streisand… underneath my breath…to “MY” self.  BAM!!!  I “knew” the words!  I “remembered” that song!!  From… “BEFORE”… the accident!!!  The family joke?  I sang every word of THAT song,  THAT day, at the very TOP of my lungs!!!  In  that HUGE waiting room/area!!!  For ALL to hear!!!  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!

WOW!!!  That “memory” took me back, folks.  To the beginning of “MY JOURNEY,” as I call it.  Searching for the “NEW ME” that I was supposed to become after the “OLD ME”… had GONE…somewhere…out there or “OVER THERE”… after a life-saving car accident many, many years ago.  DOUBLE WOW, WOW!!!

The topic of this post, “MEMORIES” had been intended to discuss other significant memories, as well.  However, “THIS”… ONE… memory completely dominated the entire post.  I feel a bit melancholy, folks.  Saddened.  Down-in-the-dumps.  I hope you enjoyed that “memory”… in written, story-form.  Perhaps I will share more memories… LATER!!!   Please check back… “LATER, dude”!!!  Sorry.  I am drifting… “OVER THERE!!!  OVER THERE”!!!  Both children, Danielle AND Chase, have gone through that “dude” phase, Chase earlier than Danielle.  (Pppsssttt… Danielle has been going through that phase just recently.  EVERYTHING said…ends with the name/title, “dude”!!!  EVERYONE…IS A “DUDE”… REGARDLESS!!! )  :/  Go figure…

MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA,  MAY GOD BLESS THE WHOLE-WIDE WORLD!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

HAPPY FATHERS DAY, 2014!!!

WOW!!!  “Seeking to build a team of #1 dads at numberoneteam.net!!!”  DOUBLE WOW, WOW!!!

Children need their fathers.  Please be there… FOR THEM!!!  So, you don’t know how to be a #1 dad?  Reach for the bible.  God is the PERFECT example.  GOD… is #1… at EVERYTHING!!!  Look to Him as the example of how to be a father.  Turn to Him for guidance in the absence of a father.  GOD IS THE ALMIGHTY FATHER!!!  And… HE… is there for YOU.  God is there for ALL of us.   ALWAYS & FOREVER. (Boy, “MEMORIES” are flooding back.  I have utilized, “ALWAYS & FOREVER” as a significant phrase for ending meaningful letters… since about age 20… “THIS”… sounds like a good post for later)…

HAPPY FATHERS DAY, 2014!!!

GO TEAM FATHERS!!!  GO TEAM DADS!!! 

Strive to give the best of yourself for “JUST” today… “EVERY” day!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

 

MY FAVORITE PLACE TO SHOP…

The St. Augustine, FL “WALMART SUPERCENTER”!!!  OMG, folks!!!  DOUBLE OMG, OMG!!!  YOU ARE GONNA ABSOLUTELY L-O-V-E “THIS” STORY…

Okay, I stopped by Walmart Supercenter for groceries on my way home from work Fri.,6/13/14  (FRIDAY, THE 13th!!!) :/

I had noticed a woman in the “check-out” line in front of me.  I think she had 2, maybe 3 young boys.  The cashier seemed to “KNOW” them.  They spoke quite “freely”.  I came to find out that they didn’t really know each other.  It seems that this woman and those young boys–all under 7-8 yrs. of age–have shopped there before.  The cashier spoke very highly of the oldest boy, stating that he is SO, SO driven to… HELP… “OTHERS”.  He was the oldest, alright.  Probably 7, maybe 8 yrs. old!

Yep, this young boy, excitedly, helped his mom with the items in their cart by first helping to empty the cart and then by placing bagged items back into the cart in preparation to vacate the store.  WOW!!!  Most young kids require verbal prompting to help in that manner at the store.  NOT “THIS” young boy.  “HE”… was different.

It seems this young boy has made quite an impression on that cashier during previous shopping excursions.  He, evidently, makes it a priority to assist ANYONE…WHO NEEDS HELP.  He once helped an elderly woman with her bags in the check-out lane.  He did not even know her.  He just wanted to help, so he approached her, independently, to ask if he could put the bagged items into the cart for her.  OMG, folks!!!  This young boy has surely been blessed by the Lord.  What I find truly amazing is that he… “GETS IT” already!!!  At such a young age.  AND… he is acting on this gift that has been bestowed him.  AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE!!!  DOUBLE OMG, OMG!!!

I… stood there speechless.  In TOTAL AMAZEMENT!!!  SPEECHLESS!!!  GOD IS GOOD, folks.  GOD IS REAL GOOD!!!

P.H.P., folks.  PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

 

GO TEAM BEAVER TOYOTA!!!

OMG, folks!!!  So, so much to blog about as MANY ideas are currently FLOODING my brain.  “ALL”… related to EVERYDAY PEEPS out there living their EVERYDAY lives!!!  DOUBLE OMG, OMG!!!  I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN!!!  WHAT AN AMAZING WEEK… of PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE… P.H.P.!!!  AMAZING GRACE!!!

Our family caravan has been in need of repairs for… awhile.  These “repairs”  HAD to be completed BEFORE my husband and son drive it to West Virginia on a Boyscout camping trip next weekend.  So, I stopped in to Beaver Toyota, here in St. Augustine, FL on Wednesday, my day “OFF” work, which I refer to as part of… “THE TWILIGHT ZONE” post that was just published 6/13/14.  Hhhmmm.  Okay now… “THIS”… is gonna be another “TRIP” to… “JILL’S WORLD,” folks.  Let us begin by entering… “THE JILL ZONE” (Pppsssttt…I just came up with “THE JILL ZONE” today while at work!)  HA!!!  “TODAY”… was such a “FUN” day… at “WORK”!!!

So… I stop in to the Service Dept. at “BEAVER TOYOTA,” here in St. Augustine on Wed. (my day “OFF” work) to get the van repaired.  Now… I simply LOVE this new “TEAM” (BEAVER) who has recently taken over at the local Toyota dealership.  “THEY”… ARE AMAZING!!!  BAM!!!  They first saved me $$$ to fix the front seat air-bag system.  Too confusing to explain.  I am, however, impressed with their honesty.

Then I had them check the back-seat, automatic sliding door.  It has been broken for awhile now.  Just thought I’d better get “THAT” fixed before the scouts load into the van for their trip to West Virginia next weekend.  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  The tech.???  Well, he diagnosed the automatic sliding door “problem” so, so quickly.  AND… he saved me EVEN MORE $$$ by simply turning the switch back to the “ON” position!!!  AND THEN???  He showed me exactly where that switch was located.  Just in case it happens again!!!  :/

OMG, folks!!!  There I go again… making a complete FOOL of myself!!! Not only to the employees working my case, but I am also pretty sure the entire waiting room… FULL of customers… got a good chuckle out of that “GOOFY” exchange between myself, the service tech. and the repair tech.  Stay with me, folks.  IT DOES NOT END THERE!!!

Oh yeah, and the SHUTTLE VAN driver… WAS ALSO AMAZING!!!  So, so funny!!!  I kid you NOT!!!  (Pppsssttt… I think we “bonded”).  He “shuttled” me about 2 miles to and from work that day, round-trip.  He even told me a funny story about… “talking to himself”  😉

What another great experience in dealing with professionals who go out and give the best of themselves for “JUST” today… “EVERY” day!!!  GO TEAM BEAVER TOYOTA!!!  Hhhmmm.  Repair work on a vehicle doesn’t make my top 10 list of “FUN” things to do, HOWEVER… “FUN” IS WHAT I HAD at BEAVER TOYOTA in St. Augustine, FL this past week…while having the van repaired!!!

WOW!!!  “LIFE”… IS AMAZING, folks.  Try to enjoy as much of it as possible.  Please try to find the “GOOD” in every situation.  “IT” is there.  CAN “YOU”… FIND IT???

P.H.P, folks.  PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

 

 

 

MIAMI HEAT is #1

to “ME”.  WHY?  1st and foremost, “I”… have a “CRUSH”… on LeBron James!!!  😉  He is an amazing basketball player…and he is so darn “cute”!!!  LeBron James… is the best basketball player of “TODAY”… to “ME”.  Maybe not to you, to him, or to her.  But he is to “ME”… in “Jill’s World”.  And “THAT” is okay, right?

So many people get, almost “ANGRY,” by the outcome of…”games”.  Winning and Losing… are a part of… “LIFE”.  It is easy to find the good associated with winning.  EVERYBODY LOVES TO WIN!!!  I believe I have blogged about winning/losing…somewhere… back there… in previous posts.  Tell me, can you identify the “GOOD” associated with losing?  NO NEGATIVE OR “EVIL” RESPONSES, please!!!  😉  It is hard to find the “GOOD” in a situation that’s perceived as having a “BAD” outcome… to YOU.  FIND THE GOOD, peeps.  IT IS THERE.  FIND IT!!!

So, the Miami Heat are now down in the NBA finals 3-1.  Tough, TOUGH situation to come back from and “WIN” the series.  ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN, folks.  “I”… will be just fine.  No matter what the outcome.  The SA SPURS are an excellent team.  I could celebrate their win.  The NBA is comprised of individuals from all over the world.  “WE ARE THE WORLD,” right?  😉  GO TEAM WORLD!!!  The Miami Heat, however… will still be #1 at numberoneteam.net!!!  NO MATTER WHAT.

GO TEAM MIAMI HEAT!!!

GO TEAM USA!!! 

GO TEAM WORLD!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

THE TWILIGHT ZONE…

WHAT!!!???  Miami Heat “LOST” game #3 of the NBA Finals… IN MIAMI???  ARE YOU KIDDING ME???  How did “I”… miss that game???  OMG!!!  YOU… WILL SIMPLY N-O-T… BELIEVE “THIS”!!!  DOUBLE OMG, OMG!!!  I do hope you all will please come along on ANOTHER trip to “JILL’s WORLD”.  READY OR NOT… HERE WE GO!!!

I decided on Tuesday, 6/10/14 that I’d like to take Wednesday, 6/11/14  off work.  Am I CRAZY?  Wanting to take the very next day off work?  OF COURSE…I’M CRAZY!!!  Well, it just-so-happened that I was able to get Wed. OFF!!!  WOOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  I was so, so excited to be able to spend the day “SHOPPING” with Danielle to get items needed or wanted for Showtime USA’s Summer Tour!!!  DOUBLE WOOO-WHOOOOOO, WOOO-WHOOOOOO!!! 

I was SOOOooo excited that I began, at some point, feeling like Tuesday… was really Friday!!!  Get it?  My mind confused itself by thinking Tuesday was Friday BECAUSE I didn’t have to work on Wednesday!  HA!!! I remember thinking(on Tuesday) how strange it was that the next NBA finals game on Tuesday(today) was 4 whole days away, which WOULD have been Tues. IF…Tues. were really Friday, BUT… IT WASN’T!!!  DOUBLE HA, HA!!!  WHEW!!!  ARE YOU WITH ME???  You guessed it… I MISSED THE GAME TUESDAY because I accidentally thought that Tuesday was Friday!!!

So, Miami lost on Tuesday night?  Well… “THAT”… is… “OKAY”.  The series is, technically…”EVEN”.  SA up 2-1, right?  Game 4 will be tonight in Miami (pppsssttt…”tonight” is Thursday, 6/12/14)  I will… DEFINITELY… catch this game… TONIGHT …in its entirety!!!  Game time is 9:00 pm, ET!!!  It is already 8:39!!!  HERE WE GO!!!

GO TEAM MIAMI HEAT!!!  (Pppsssttt… have I mentioned my “crush” on LJ???)  😉

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD.  AMEN.

 

GO TEAM SHOWTIME USA!!!

Another year has come to an end.  High School seniors have graduated and will not be returning next year.  “THIS”… is sad.  HOWEVER… The entire crew will be leaving for their, mandatory, summer tour in West Palm Beach, FL… SOON!!!  “SOON”… as in… approximately 8-9 hours!!!  SO, SO EXCITING!!!  It is 7:21 pm, ET in FL RIGHT NOW!!!  Wed., 6/11/14.  SHOWTIME will be on the buses and beginning their “TOUR” adventure at 4:00 am, ET Thurs. 6/12/14!!!  SO, SO EXCITING!!! (Pppsssttt… my husband, Chris, taught me to “view” almost EVERYTHING as an… “ADVENTURE”!!!  “YOU” …can “FEEL” the excitement too, can’t you???)

I am guessing, but I think Showtime USA is comprised of about 7 different singing/dancing groups of kids ranging in ages from 4 to 18.  “SOME”… will sleep on the buses while heading to West Palm Beach.  “OTHERS”… will not.  These kids will ready themselves on the buses for their first show which will occur IMMEDIATELY upon arriving into the city.  WOW!!!  HURRY, HURRY, HURRY-UP AND GO, GO, GO!!!  DOUBLE WOW, WOW!!!

ON the buses:  there will be lots of sugar.  Snacks.  Energy drinks.  Coffee.  Loud music.  Movies.  Singing.  Talking.  Screaming.  Laughing.  Laughing.  And… MORE LAUGHING!!!  These kids will perform shows at different venues.  They will be having fun, Fun, FUN at a shopping mall, water park, night-time dance club, “planetairsports”??? is supposed to be fun, Fun, FUN, plus MORE!!!  I do not have the itinerary, BUT…THESE kids are gonna have fun, Fun, FUN… ’til???  They are expected to arrive back in St. Augustine on Sat., 6/14/14 at 11:30 pm.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  GO TEAM SHOWTIME USA!!!  “I”… will NOT be going on “THIS” tour with Danielle and the rest of the group.

Showtime USA will then, however, be heading to NYC a few days after returning home from their West Palm Beach tour.  “THIS” tour (to NYC)…is “OPTIONAL,” right Mr. Matt?  “GOT IT!!!”  😉  “I”…will be going along on this trip to the Big Apple!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!!  Now “THIS”… is so, So, SO… “EXCITING”!!!  I, SIMPLY, CANNOT WAIT!!!  🙂

WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

GO TEAM SHOWTIME USA!!!  You kids ALWAYS give the BEST of yourselves for “JUST” today… “EVERY” day!!!  SHINE-ON!!!

“BREAK-A-LEG” and “HAVE FUN”!!!  😉

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

AAAHHH!!! ??? and more about…”ME”…

I DO NOT GET IT!!!  “Captcha”.  “Plugins.”  “Trackback.”  “Spam”.  What is GOOD?  What is BAD?  I am so afraid to do anything on this computer anymore…especially after having that HUGE…”TROJAN HORSE”  thingy!!!

My computer is currently telling me (via numbers by symbols and words) that there are 2 plugins and 6 updates somewhere…out there…that I should probably do something with or about.  Hhhmmm. ( I really, Really, REALLY say “Hhhmmm” quite frequently, at work or at home in a silly, crazy, long- winded tone of voice regarding…questionably silly, crazy things.  REALLY!)  🙂  I am not real sure what to do with those “plugins” and “updates”…or what to NOT do, SOOOooo, I have done NOTHING!!!  PERIOD. (“THIS”… is SOOOooo “ME”)  I get easily paralyzed by my “dumbfoundedness”(meaning that I simply don’t “get-it”–Pppsssttt… is that a new word I just made-up, “dumbfoundedness”?) and/or my “overwhelmedness”(anxiety…regarding whatever “IT” is that lies ahead of me.  Ex.:  “DEADLINES”–Pppsssttt…”ANOTHER” new word, “overwhelmedness”?)  HA!!!  Just having fun, folks.  DOUBLE HA, HA!!!

???  Are you following me?  Pppsssttt… “I”… am kinda “LOST” right now.  I have NO idea where I am going with this post.  “Hhhmmm”  🙂 ( Yep, I am thinking that in my mind, “Hhhmmm,” EXACTLY how I actually say it at work or at home… in a silly, crazy, long-winded tone).  🙂

Folks, I simply want to share some of my “CRAZY” stories and ideas with as many people as possible.  Around the entire world.  “WE ARE THE WORLD,”  right?  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER, right? Or wrong?  There is no need for comment regarding that “CRAZY” question, folks.  I already know the answer.  Sadly.

Now, this is a “TRUE” story, folks.  A co-worker of mine, STEVE PARSONS, Speech Therapist, was quite a character as my co-worker.  He had given me a book regarding birth dates and personalities (astrological signs) to read regarding how my new-born daughter was destined to be…based on her birth-date (I think).  I NEVER READ THAT BOOK.  “IT”… scared me. (Now “THAT”… sounds like a good post for later!)  I do still have it(the book)…here…amidst our mountains of books/old tapes… SOMEWHERE… in our house. (oh yeah, “STUFF”… sounds like a GREAT post for later)  😉

I got distracted.  Sorry.  So anyway… Steve was special…in his own way.  We worked together for awhile at my first full-time position as a COTA/L here in St. Augustine, FL ( remember, I came South to FL from OH as a traveling therapist ).  I will NEVER forget Steve calling me a name that I had heard before, but I didn’t know “who” she was or “what” it meant to be called “THAT” name.  “Hhhmmm.”  🙂  So, what’s the name?  “POLLY-ANNA” (Sorry.  Don’t know how to spell it.  Never read the book.  Never saw the movie. Not real sure there even is a movie.)

What I have gathered, OVER-THE-YEARS, is that this “Polly-Anna” is pretty gullible.  She is optimistic and thinks “GOOD” of everyone.  Not real sure.  Hhhmmm.  Perhaps I need to learn more about her by reading or watching the book/movie.  I will NEVER FORGET… Steve Parsons calling me “Polly-Anna” at work one day, probably back in the 90’s sometime…

Steve also knew me to be a… “FIGHTER”!!!  He always compared me to my astrological birth sign… a SCORPIO!!!  DANGEROUS!!!  LETHAL!!!  DO NOT MESS WITH JILL!!!  Oh yeah, I ALWAYS… fought the fight.  And “IF”… I entered a fight, I INTENDED TO WIN IT!!!  PERIOD!!!  And boy could I hold onto a grudge… FOREVER!!!  NEVER FORGETTING even the smallest of details!!!  Yep, that was “ME,” folks.  No wonder I was ALWAYS a mixed-up, confused, angry, and depressed individual much of the time!!!  “Hhhmmm.”  🙂  Go figure.

WOW!!!  So there you have…”MORE”… about “ME”.  Polly-Anna.  Scorpio.  DOUBLE WOW, WOW!!!  “LIFE”…IS TRULY… A JOURNEY!!!  Have you mapped- out “YOURS” yet?  So, so interesting.  And so, so frightful to try and put the pieces of your life’s puzzle together.  “IT ALL”… comes together, folks.  “IT ALL”… makes sense.  Everything.  EVERYTHING…IN LIFE…HAS A PURPOSE.  THERE IS A REASON FOR EVERYTHING!!!

There are many people out there who are hurting.  BADLY.  Please turn to God.  He will show you the way.  He will take that pain from you and deal with it… HIS way.  NOT YOURS.  “HIS WAY”…IS ALWAYS THE… “RIGHT WAY”!!!

P.H.P., folks.  PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE!!!

Now… back to the beginning:  I AM STILL… doing “NOTHING” about those plug-ins and updates.  “Aaahhh!!!”  I don’t “GET-IT”!!!  What to do…think, Think, THINK (Pooh-Bear)  🙂  “I” am low-tech., folks.  And “THAT” is okay with me.  “Jesus loves me.  This I know.  For the Bible tells me so…”  Yep, I am drifting… “OVER THERE, OVER THERE”… somewhere in this place called “JILL’S WORLD”!!!  More later, folks…

Please give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today… “EVERY” day!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

GOD BLESS AMERICA.  AND MAY GOD BLESS THE WHOLE-WIDE WORLD!!! 

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHEN YOU ONLY “SEE”…THE “BAD”…

LIFE…IS DIFFICULT, folks.  FOR EVERYBODY…EVERYWHERE!!!  NOTHING OR NO ONE IN “LIFE” IS PERFECT.  ONLY JESUS CHRIST, OUR SAVIOR.

People are… HUMAN”.  WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES.  EVERY DAY!!!  “Forgive me Father, for I have sinned…AGAIN”!!!  Mistakes happen.  ALL THE TIME!!!  “LIFE”…GOES ON.  Get over it.  Get over yourself.  Move on.

It’s the “petty” things that shouldn’t really matter.  Someone made a mistake?  “FIX IT!!!”  And move on.  Allow team-mates to “HELP”.  “YOUR” way… IS NOT THE ONLY WAY.  Please acknowledge others’ attempts to “HELP” with gratitude.  Perhaps a situation was not “fixed”… YOUR” WAY… by “YOU,” but please realize that your way is NOT the only way.  NOT EVERYTHING HAS TO BE VIEWED AS NEGATIVE.  PLEASE LOOK FOR…AND FIND…THE POSITIVE, OR GOOD.  “IT”…IS THERE.  CAN “YOU” FIND IT?

LIFE IS DIFFICULT!!!  Please don’t make it harder than it already is.  Not EVERYTHING MATTERS!!!  Are you able to recognize when something doesn’t really matter?  Or is EVERYTHING catastrophic?  Please be aware… “YOU HAVE ISSUES”… if EVERYTHING matters… ALL THE TIME.  Been there.  Done that.

My “LIFE” … is so much calmer these days.  NOT EVERYTHING MATTERS!!!  “WOOO-WHOOOOOO!!!”  The “petty” things ARE NOT “CATASTROPHIC”!!!  I FINALLY… “GET IT”!!!  WHEW!!!  “I”… have found “PEACE”…HERE ON EARTH.  Thank you, Jesus. 

“LET IT GO.”    Please try to relax.  Give your troubles unto the Lord.  HE… can handle them.  YOU… don’t have to.

P.H.P., folks.  PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE. (and please just “TRY” to appreciate others’ efforts to “HELP” )

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
