count down till the weekend

Thank you, Rose, for the pretty graphic of the snow globe : )

Another day closer to the visit from my mother, I have mixed feelings about the visit. I love my mom and I am looking forward to seeing her. By the end of the weekend,however, we will be most likely arguing quietly about something. We always find something that we disagree with. I try to just let things fly by that she says. Life is too short to argue with her. She could be less judgmental and more careful about the words she uses sometimes. I let her say hurtful things to me sometimes without saying a word. I dont know if she means to be like that or she just doesnt realize she is hurting my feelings. I dont know.

On a happy note, I met someone last night online who has alot in common with me. We chatted online for quite some time. It was really nice to talk to someone who understands how I feel. I really hope that we get to know each other better. I consider him a much valued friend. Thank you, DB, for taking the time out to get to know me. : )

I am going to go now and take my dogs out for thier daily walk. My dog, Billy, as usual keeps bumping my hand when I am trying to type. He is saying "let's go mom. It is a nice day out". I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Because of my visit from my mom, I probably wont be able to post anything until Sunday. Stay safe everyone!! God Bless

Sorry to say but some people are just like your mother. My mother was very negative but she was just like that. If she is upsetting you on purpose... face it.. she is wanting to argue. Take a couple of minutes for a short prayer.. the Lord will provide in time of need. Gives us answers that we could not think of by ourself. Very hard to keep still but you will not have as many regrets if something happened to your mother. We tend to feel like they are going to be there forever. Life sometimes can be very short. You are in my prayers and glad that you can get out.. go for a walk with Billy and enjoy the beauty that God lets us see. God Bless, Janie

I hope your visit does go well with your mom, Christine; sometimes turning the other cheek so to speak and being quiet when they talk, it is better than stirring up a lot of unpleasant words and hurt feelings; you are the kind one for taking these things into consideration

isn't it nice to connect with people online?

I'm so glad your trip with your mother turned out WELL, and I can understand having been so nervous in advance.
