THE NUMBER “3”…

has been significant since my teen years.  #3 meant, “I LOVE YOU” and was often displayed by raising 3 fingers of one hand into the air for that special someone to see…from across the room.  BAM!!!  So sweet, huh???  Young love.  They say you never forget that first “LOVE”.  I bet you’re ALL “TRIPPING” right now, aren’t you?  Taking a trip down memory lane…  😉

So, what brings me back to that sweet memory from so long ago?  It “BOPPED” me right upside my head soon after arriving to work this morning.  And… guess what???  Yep, I bonded with another patient at work today!!!  She just happened to mention, OUT OF THE BLUE, that #3 has ALWAYS been “HER” favorite number!!!  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? 

Needless to say, I PERKED RIGHT UP and came to FULL attention as she continued speaking!!!  Aaahhhhhh!!!  My brain was SCREAMING, “#3 is MY favorite number too,” inside the chamber of my skull!!!  #3 to “HER” has ALWAYS represented:  “The Father.  The Son.  And The Holy Ghost.”  MGO, folks!!!  “THIS”…gave me chills.  #3 = “I LOVE YOU” and “The Father.  The Son.  And The Holy Ghost.” to both of us…NOW!!!  DOUBLE MGO, MGO!!! POWERFUL, folks.  “THIS”…was VERY POWERFUL!!!

The #3 re-emerged as my very favorite number…thanks to a special patient who “IMPRINTED,” positively, upon my heart today.  THANKS… for the memories.  My heart is smiling tonight…

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL

On Tues. 4/7/15.

MGO(May God Offer), folks!!!  DOUBLE MGO, MGO!!!  Come along…as we travel to a new and exciting place in “JILL’S WORLD”.  I am utterly amazed at how one’s reaction to a situation can COMPLETELY change a “NEGATIVE”…into a “POSITIVE”.  But wait… I ALREADY “KNEW” THIS…didn’t I???  I “DID” already know this, but experienced it in such an amazing manner on Tues.. 4/7/15.   COME…

“LIFE”…is CRAZY!!!  BUSY!!!   ALL THE TIME!!!  Some days are busier than others.  “SOME”…are better than others, right???  RIGHT!!!  Well, I arrived to work on Tues., 4/7/15 at around 10:30am, ET.  BAM!!!  My VERY FIRST patient was new to me.  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  I quickly realized that my “LIFE” was being “touched by an angel”.

What an AMAZING woman, folks.  My first patient was so pleasant.  So kind.  So thankful.  DESPITE…the tremendous “DIFFICULTIES” she faces.  Her Right Leg was recently amputated, above the knee.  Phantom pains plagued her…as she chuckled about “pain” in a part of her leg that she knew had been removed from her body a week ago.  She was “CHUCKLING,” folks!!!

Her kindness…is contagious.  She was so thankful for my assistance during her morning care, especially with a newly amputated leg.  AND… her legal blindness.  AND… her Left-sided weakness/paralysis from a previous stroke.  AFTER… battling cancer and the effects of breast removal.  PLUS… the devastating loss of a son.  WHAT!!!???!!!???!!!???  My “LIFE” was, TRULY, touched by an angel yesterday, folks.  I recognized “HER,” as such, IMMEDIATELY!!!

This “angel” was present in one of our treatment gyms as “DIFFICULTIES” loomed around the corner in the big documentation office.  “I” was invited to partake in this discussion…“IF” you know what I mean.  (Yep, I was being called in to provide information that would support one of two opposing views.)  OUCH!!!  DIFFICULT SITUATION…that could NOT be avoided.  I was so VERY proud to have been part of a situation where EVERYONE responded in a manner allowing it to be resolved peacefully…IN TRUE “TEAM” FASHION.  TOGETHER!!!

And then a reminder of my “angel” in the other room…“HELPED” to deflate, yet another,  looming situation…AFTER…resolution of the initial situation.  Thank you, Jesus.  What an eye-opening experience.  Teammates commented and/or responded in such a manner that indicated we had ALL just witnessed or been a part of something AMAZING…TOGETHER!!!

“LIFE…IS DIFFICULT,” folks.  For everybody.  Everywhere.  Helping each other to survive sure beats fighting each other to survive…ANY DAY!!!  AMEN.

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

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

 

IMPRESSIONS…

WOW!!!  I JUST got CHILLS…DOWN THE BACKS OF BOTH ARMS!!!

“IMPRINTING”… upon others’ lives.  MAKING IMPRESSIONS…of yourself or… of anything…for THAT matter….  Hhhmmm…think.  Think.  THINK… (more chills)

WOW!!!  THIS… is DEEP, folks!!!  “IMPRINTING” or putting your signature mark onto someone/something representing yourself.  A mark that will automatically be associated with… “YOU”???  A subtle, yet dramatic reminder “OF” you.  Hhhmmm… WHAT MARK ARE YOU GONNA MAKE???  AND…MAKE IT GOOD!!!  REAL GOOD!!!

“LIFE”… is NOT an accident… waiting to happen.  “LIFE” is a miracle… waiting to be realized.  A purpose… waiting to be discovered.  “LIFE”… IS A JOURNEY, folks.  ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS…

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

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

INSULTS…

HURT.  PERIOD!!!

DO NOT SAY ANYTHING  IF YOU CAN’T SAY ANYTHING GOOD!!!  How can anyone insult a, so-called, friend???  RIGHT TO HIS OR HER FACE!!!  And then… LAUGH???  I do NOT “GET” that…AT ALL.

Hhhmmm… Do “YOU”… REALLY think you were ONLY kidding???  Do you expect “OTHERS” to believe that you were only kidding???  DOUBLE Hhhmmm, Hhhmmm… think, Think, THINK. 

Insults… ARE NEGATIVE.  Native + negative = more negative.  Compliments…ARE POSITIVE.  Positive + positive = more positive.  Right???  Or wrong???

TRY TO KEEP THINGS POSITIVE…ALWAYS!!!

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

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

“I AIN’T GOT NO MONEY!!!”

“THIS”…is too funny!!!  Come along, folks… we’re taking ANOTHER trip to “JILL’S WORLD”!!!

My daughter(Danielle) had sent me an instant message on this past Friday afternoon just as I was initiating a text message to my boss(Sal) since she had already left work for the day.  Danielle(my daughter) asked: “Can I go out to dinner with a couple of friends?”  I quickly responded:  “Yes.  Do you have money?” and hit “SEND”…

Hhhmmm…Danielle did NOT respond to my instant message question.  I returned my focus back to typing and sending that work-related text to my boss prior to leaving work for the weekend.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  IT’S FRIDAY!!!  I was so excited to leave work and start the weekend…DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

I checked my messages soon after arriving home Fri. evening.  Whew!!!  The weekend had begun!!!  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  ARE YOU KIDDING ME???!!!???!!!???!!!  There was a text from Sal (my boss) saying, “I AIN’T GOT NO MONEY!!!”    I responded right back with: “WHAT???  Well, I ain’t got no money, either!!!”   

I was certain there was something spooky going on!!!”  I thought someone was trying to scam Sal for money…UNTIL I REALIZED…that I, mistakenly, sent Sal(my boss) the reply meant for Danielle(my daughter)!!!  OUCH!!!  :/

Sal and I had both forgotten the ordeal until we were in the hallway at work today(Tues., 3/31/15).  Someone…somewhere in that hallway asked something about money…HA!!! I LOST IT!!!  And quickly hollered out, “I AIN’T GOT NO MONEY!!!”  Sal just happened to be in that general area and we both roared with laughter in the middle of the hallway as we acknowledged our understanding of this “CRAZY” misunderstanding that had occurred on Fri., 3/27/15!!!

High-tech gadgets DO NOT like “ME”!!!  And I’m “OKAY” with that.  HA!!! As a matter-of-fact…I’M GREAT WITH THAT!!!  THE FEELING IS MUTUAL!!!   😉 DOUBLE HA, HA!!!

Just ANOTHER day, folks!!!  Oh, bother!!!  My head aches.  I’m tired.  Crabby.  I feel “chunky”.  It’s beyond time for bed…

Goodnight.  Sweet dreams…

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
