Happy October everyone!!!
(contest on bottom)
Well for a lot i suppose it is not too happy....Stock market falls,bail out doesn't happen,banks being bought out for unheard of low prices...Depression of 2008 ,here we are.I try really hard to stay optimistic ,no way will i allow negative thoughts to stay too long at a time.You will get depressed that way.Been there ,done that,NO MORE...Not a good way to live.So positive thinking it is.I can be glad now i am in a lower class of living,home paid for,not near as beautiful as some,but it is comfortable,cozy and inviting and i grew up here...so that is good.My kids and grands are in good health as far as i know,that is a blessing within it's self thank
God.What i would really like to see come out of all this is the greed and self righteousness that we have filled America with come out!A lot of people and co.'s have become overly rich at the expense of someone else over the years.Love thy neighbor has become a forgotten rule.Give and it shall be given unto you has become something most laugh at....These rules were put into place for a reason...If you care about each other,we have someone at all times who cares.I don't care who you are ,at one time or another you need someone.Wouldn't it be great if it were like it was years ago?You fell on hard times,neighbors from all around came to help.House burn,neighbors come and you build another one.Need a barn or a shed?Heck they'd come from miles around to help build you one and have a buffet spread out on a table from all the ladies for miles.It turned into a huge party!Everyone gave of themselves for others because they cared and knew if they needed the same thing ,you'd come to them.No one was afraid to leave windows and soors open..If someone passed by at meal time ,you'd invite them in..Now you are scared of them because they are probably there to rob you or worse!Children walked roads and visited each other on bikes,horses or just walking,Now you are afrais to let them because there are so many child molesters... ....What happened here that made us change? We forgot about God,we became
lack of respect,morals,descency,love,HARD WORK .
If the economy crashing can bRing back any of these good things so that my grandkids and kids can grow up in a better place,i say....BRING IT ON....
GOD BLESS US ALL......
