                                JUST THINKING!

Random thoughts  that flow throw my brain are not always good thoughts.  sometimes they are so jumbled I don't even know what I am thinking.
Right now, my thoughts are on those in Texas.  I check the computer often for any post by my Texas friends and hope and pray they are alright, so far they are all safe.
That leads me to think about the kindness of strangers, some risking their own lives for people they don't even know, and I think how kind and wonderful people are.  Then, of coarse the story is interrupted by someone looting or price gouging and I wonder why.

My thinking goes to the fact that we have so much, all the food we need, we live in a world where so much is just handed out to people and they are bored.  There was a time, when our very lives hung on the amount of work done. Each day was about survival.  There was no time, to even think about being unhappy with what we didn't have.   Not so these days.

I don't want to be a downer person, there is so much good and love in this world.  Let us pray each day, let us always find the good in others.

 Let us fill our cup with joy.  This cup is special and always reminds me to have a good day, it was given as a gift when I finished my last chemo. 


  1. Nonie, first of all, I didn't know you had to have treatments, I'm so sorry.

    Me and my sister were just talking this morning about the way it used to be. We laugh cause we didn't have nearly as much as our school friends had, yet my mom was the best mom and taught us other things like saying "please and thank you." You don't hear that very much these days.

    What a very nice post about gratitude, Nonie, and the words on your cup are are special. I appreciate you sharing your random thoughts.


    1. Thank you Sheri, I was very lucky, they caught the cancer in time.
      I think most of us grew up being very thankful for what we had.

  2. You have such a good attitude, Nonie.
    I am so thankful your cancer was caught early. A real blessing.
    I am watching Fox news right now and looters shooting at the people trying to rescue ...Osteen backing up fast on opening his church to offer aid..I think there for awhile, he had not opened it up for shelter purposes. people saying GONE WITH THE WIND is racial....they want to ban it from all theaters...people saying First Lady shoes weren't proper...our world seems almost out of control and it makes me so sad.
