LETTING GO OF THE PAST, PART II

WHAT???…???…???… “PART  II”  HUH???  :/ (THE LOOK)  Bear with me, folks, as I feel compelled to further explain that previous post, published 1/14/16.  Ready???  READY!!!

Now that we understand “WHY” bus rides were VERY DIFFICULT for me when I was a child, I MUST admit that I unknowingly displaced “MY” ISSUES onto BOTH of my children.  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  HOW???  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I’ve ALWAYS done my BEST to ensure that my children did or do NOT have to ride a bus home from school.  OUCH!!!  That has meant 13 years of arranging my schedule and/or leaving work at in-opportune times to pick up my children (especially Danielle) in order to AVOID bus rides home.  Riding the bus home was MY issue, not my kids’.  OUCH!!!

I STILL do this TODAY for Chase, a junior in H.S., since he does NOT have his own car yet.  FAIR…is FAIR, right???  (Yep…I STILL get my “SELF” hung up on “FAIRNESS ISSUES” -in ALL areas- that represent DEFINITE CHAINS that STILL bind me!!!)  DOUBLE OUCH, OUCH!!!  🙁 

BUS ISSUES AND FAIRNESS ISSUES!!!  BOTH of them tied together…SOMEHOW!!!  UGH.  :/  LIFE IS SURE DIFFICULT, folks!!!  FOR EVERYBODY.  EVERYWHERE.   Can we PLEASE just “HELP” each other along the way???     

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

P.H.P., People Helping People.

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

A VERY BLESSED DAY…

thanks to various community TEAMMATES!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Today is Sat., 1/16/16 and I am so, So, SO EXCITED about this morning’s adventures that I’ve just GOT to share, Share, SHARE them with you!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  I invite you to come along, folks.  Yep, we’re taking another trip to “JILL’S WORLD!!!  READY or NOT…here we go, Go, GO…

1st stop…???…???…???…CVS.   To pick up a few quick items and… BAM!!!  I received a $5 cash back coupon for my next purchase…JUST FOR SHOPPING THERE!!!  The cashier announced the coupon as she handed me the lengthy receipt and I quickly shouted:  “WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  A FIVE DOLLAR COUPON???  I’M A WINNER!!!”  Fellow patrons appeared equally excited “FOR” me!!!  GO TEAM!!!  We all chuckled as I exited the store…merrily.

2nd STOP…???…???…???… MARIOTTI’S (dry cleaners).  I handed the attendant my pick-up slip and it seemed to take a VERY long time for my son’s tux pants and his white shirt to make it around on that motorized rack!!!  :/  I had NOT viewed the receipt, but today’s attendant noted an error in the billing… IMMEDIATELY… thereby saving me $11!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  GO TEAM!!!  I was REALLY feeling GOOD then, folks, as I exited the cleaners…Very Merrily!!!

3rd STOP…???…???…???…PUBLIX (the island grocery store).  Teammates were so, So, SO “HELPFUL” in that store, folks!!!   An employee AND customer “HELPED” me out at the Seafood counter to choose a different-than-usual fresh fish to try and then offered cooking/seasoning advice.  GO TEAM!!! 

Then…a Publix employee “HELPED” by clearing up my confusion regarding a Frito Lay savings “SPECIAL” posted RIGHT beneath the “Doritos”!!!  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  BUY 1/GET 1 FREE!!!  HUH…???…???…???…I did NOT know, folks.  Are Doritos Frito Lays???  :/   The employee was NOT certain either, but she accompanied me down the isle to observe the special offer, hoping to clear my confusion.  She even joked about her confusion regarding the question I posed to her regarding my confusion.  Ya still with me???  We both chuckled.  Boy, I sure admired her humility.  She was VERY “HELPFUL”!!!  GO TEAM!!! 

I later searched different isles for Red lobster’s biscuit mix for tonight’s fish dinner, but could NOT find them!!!  BAM!!!   A Very friendly cashier walked me RIGHT over and down the correct isle to those biscuits!!!  And I then followed her RIGHT back to her register to begin the check-out process…IMMEDIATELY!!!  Where, yet, another friendly employee “HELPED” empty individual items from my cart for check-out and he then placed the bagged items back into my cart!!!  Needless to say, I exited that grocery store VERY MERRILY, as well!!!

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

“SATAN BE GONE”

Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

“SATAN BE GONE”…sounds like a stain remover, doesn’t it???  Nope, not a “STAIN” remover, silly.  It sounds MORE like a “SATAN REMOVER”!!!  WAH, WAH, WAH…(bad joke).  :/

WHAT???…???…???…  “YOU” wanna get some of that Satan remover called “SATAN BE GONE”???  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  IT’S FREE, folks.  And…IT’S EASY AS 1, 2, 3 (Yep, “ABC” by “The Jackson 5”)  😉  Sorry, Slight distraction…  :/ 

Yep, you can remove that NASTY STAIN called “SATAN” from your LIFE by simply inviting GOD INTO your heart, mind, body and soul.  A.K.A.:  Your LIFE.  BAM!!!  THERE YA GO, folks!!!  Removing Satan from your life is like…”ABC.  EASY AS 1, 2, 3″!!!  😉

Satan, however, is a CONSTANT BATTLE.  We ALL need a daily dosage of God for the “SATAN BE GONE” to work properly, enabling us to keep moving forward in the “RIGHT” direction.  AMEN AND AMEN.

HELPFUL HINT:  Spend time with God.  Praying.  Thinking.  Reading(especially the Bible, His word).  Talking.  Singing.  Listening.  Etc., etc., etc.  However much time you’ve got to give…FOR NOW.  And please know that the amount of time you give to God reflects YOUR location along YOUR JOURNEY, folks.  YOU ARE RIGHT WHERE YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE…FOR NOW!!!  I GUARANTEE that you will grow, SPIRITUALLY, as you go, thereby choosing to spend MORE time with Him along the way.

WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  1, 2, 3…”SATAN BE GONE!!!”  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  (Aaahhhhhh!!!  I cannot STOP singing that Jackson 5 song!!!)  Loving Michael Jackson @numberoneteam.net.  May you R.I.P.  “WE ARE THE WORLD.”

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

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