Hurricane is comin…….

the media has a good time with sending people into panic mode.. they will predict a storms path in fifty different directions every day and in reality their predictions are so off sometimes.. but for right now Haiti is getting pounded.. prayers for them during this terrible time…

being originally from the Florida Keys.. I have seen some devastating storms come through… its definitely no joke.. mother nature is a biatch…

I remember one particular storm, I was living further north in florida .. we were without electricity for a week… no gas.. no groceries… and if people were lucky enough to find that they had to drive an hour or more to get to it and when that even happened the lines were incredible.. 

on a brighter note.. today is my oldest granddaughters birthday and she turned twelve today… ( audience applause) yes my baby is getting bigger and time is flying by so fast.. to look at her you would think she is 15 or 16… very mature for her age.. probably because she is the oldest of seven children.. I love her beyond words.. .. I took her to school this morning and got her a mcdonalds frappe on the way..   we will do the whole cake thing later this evening..

as for my son in law and daughter update… they missed their parenting counseling class last night due to a tire blow out.. wont look good for them at court later this month.. im not sure of the level of their comprehension on the severity of that.. but I have to release control of being stressed out over their deadlines and requirements.. they have to acknowledge responsibility at some point and the consequences to not completing the requirements….

no job… no home.. if I could just open the brain and look in at the thought process I would.. my theory is that the other grandmother will get extended custody and I think they will set a court date six months to a year from that ruling to see the progress if any of the parents of the children and their ability to provide.. that’s my guess. .. who knows it might be worse than that..i don’t know..

their whole reason they got into trouble with the system were the arguments that they had between themselves a few times.. nothing children related.. no cruelty.. no neglect..just the fact that that they have had a few arguments that have gotten heated.. and police were called at some point… they have known each other since age 13 and have been a couple since they were 19 and the are now 32  so 13 years together.. and 19 years total around each other.. I think its safe to say  that they are always going to be together… and the strange part about the division of children and families getting involved is that most of their social workers are early twenties.. have no children… but apparently are experts in the raising of children and experts on relationships.. go figure..

once you have them in your life.. its a nightmare.. they operate by their own rules that they make up as they go along.. they can turn the tables on families in the blink of an eye.. its always their word above all else.. and unfortunately so many people fall prey to them and are at their mercy.. yes I believe their are real crisis situations out there that need full attention by them.. but the ones that don’t unfortunately get the worst sentences…

but im throwing it upwards to God .. I have to…

I’m glad that I have been consistant with taking the three older children to church weds evenings and sundays.. I think it has opened their minds a little .. given them other things to think about … I even downloaded the gateway bible.. and have begun to read the bible from the start.. of the world being created to adam and eve to Noah loading the ark to them finally surviving the floods and disembarking and multiplying …

Pastor always tells his congregation to get into the word of God.. so I am.. im finding it interesting.. don’t know if its  because I’m  hitting  the half century mark this month with my fiftieth birthday… .. I have always been spiritual… was always turned off by the “manmade churches” or the interpretation of the bible by a human beings…

but never say never because for the last six months I have been in a manmade church listening to a human being preach..  ( lol )

I intend on learning something new when ever I can…

anyways..  woke up from the strangest dream this morning.. I was kissing a guy.. nice looking.. didn’t know who he was.. i was dreaming of a total stranger.. but it was a passionate kiss..i remember the breath not smelling all that great but then i woke up with my dog laying there looking at me and determined it was her breath and somewhat part of my morning breath i was smelling..  lets just hope she wasn’t kissing me too.. omg… if she did she was a good kisser but the breath… uggghh.. lmao.. i crack myself up… i really should socialize  more…

So.. some of the things im thinking about today  are  the weather.. ( of course) cause im on that east coast of florida in the cone… thinking about the baseball player from the marlins that just passed away in a boating accident  Jose Fernandez… and how young he was with so much promise in his future and a new baby on the way and such a loving and devoted family that he had and how sad it was to see how many people showed up for his tribute.. so touching..im thinking about birthday cake tonight with the other kids..

on an ending note.. my mom and her husband are doing better from her car accident episode… she is looking for another vehicle hers was declared totaled.. i saw pictures.. wow… she really ate the back of that persons vehicle….

heard about a young girl from my hometown.. that is the same age as my youngest daughter ( 29 ) that passed away suddenly from a blood clot to the heart..and how close to home.. not only my hometown and the same age as my daughter but my daughter also still lives there and has been diagnosed with two blood clots in her arm that she is on blood thinners for now.. so sad… my daughter knows who the girl was.. and is shaken by the fact that she shares the same complications.. and that the results could be fatal…at any time…

life is a constant roller coaster….

  1. I feel for you. I love my oldest grandson (age 15) so much; he is special needs, as is his 14 year old brother. Autism and complications. I feel I would die if anyone took them away from me somewhere, or placed them in a home where I couldn’t readily see them and stay with them. I don’t see them EVERY day, now, but several times a week. And we take them to church every Sunday. I hope and pray everything works out well for you and your grandchildren.
    I will end with something amusing. I sometimes wonder if my boys are really listening in church (big church). Last Sunday Pastor was talking about Jonah’s gourd vine that God sent a worm to eat up. My oldest leaned over to me and whispered, “What kind of worm?” He is a creature-lover, all kinds. I told him a caterpillar (who knows?) and he was satisfied. Blessings to you, friend.

  2. thank you “savedbygrace” that was adorable.. I could picture the church scene scenario… I also have a 6 year old autistic grand son .. severe.. he doesn’t eat food only bottle fed and doesn’t speak but will imitate words on occasion and is inspired by his brothers and sisters to learn they love and adore him and know he is special.. children and families demanded he be put in school system.. and we have complied, public school systems are cruel and luckily we have great teachers involved in the special needs program.. ( he isn’t potty trained either ) some people aren’t so lucky to have caring people watching over theirs… ( wiping a tear away ) it has been a journey and we will battle onward… love and grace to you and yours!!
