How's everyone doing this weekend? I hope it's going well for you. Happy Veteran's Day. Thank you to all the veterans.
I woke up feeling nostalgic yesterday. I thought about both of my grandma's who have passed on. Also my dad and step-dad. I wanted to get up yesterday morning and make the cocoa gravy like my Grandma Hill used to make when I would visit her when
I was a child. November 12th is the anniversary of my Grandma Cooper's death. My oldest daughter would call her grandma great when she was about 4 years old. Grandma Cooper was a great woman. I have such fond memories of spending time with both of
them while growing up. They were both full of love. Then I grew up and spent more time with my then boyfriend (now husband) and didn't visit them as often as I should have. Life is crazy and goes by very fast. Hold on for the wild ride. It won't last for very long.
Make the memories anyway. Reach out to someone when you can.
Every morning, I check out my crazy horoscope and see what kind of day it says I might have. I have two apps for my horoscopes. No, they are never accurate, but I can sometimes get a laugh out of them. This morning's horoscope told me, "It always seems to others as if you have total self-belief but there are times when even a Capricorn starts to have doubts and this appears to be one of them. Maybe if you stopped chasing after things you clearly cannot have, life would be happier." I do have doubts. But I will never stop chasing my dreams. If I cannot have it, it wasn't meant to be and I move on. You never know what is meant to be. The other app tells me today that "At some point in your life, Capricorn, you have heard at least once (and probably far more than that) that you are in charge of your own happiness. That's right, you have the power to choose to be happy. So, if that's the case, why does it sometimes seem like a really hard thing to do? Happiness isn't always an instant decision. It takes time to build up happiness, to condition yourself, to begin to believe that you actually have that power. But the truth is that you do. Work on that today, and see how far you can get."
I will keep learning. I will keep chasing dreams. I will keep holding on. I will choose kindness. "Love is a language stronger than hate." Quoted from the song Love Will Always Win by Travis Greene. For several days now, I keep seeing the scripture from Jeremiah 29:11: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." God's plans for your life will far exceed the circumstances of your day. And another scripture from Proverbs 19:21 "Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails."
