THANK YOU VETERANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Thank you to all the veterans, their families, active military and to those who paid the ultimate price. It is because of you and your predecessors who fought and still fight for freedom.

Below the last picture, you’ll find a poem thanking all veterans. Hope you read it. Because if you’re like me then you’ll feel the same way I do. My dad is a veteran so yes, saying thank you to a veteran means a lot.

Box Set Update: The Royal Murder Mysteries Series

Hi everyone and welcome. It’s been a while since I updated you on my progress of my box set I challenged myself to do and I’m happy and excited to say that I just finished Book 3 the other night. So what does that mean? It means I have  3 books of a 4 book box set complete. YAY ME!!

BOOKS COMPLETED

1.) Turkey, Three Sweaters And Multiple Murders At Chris’s House: The Royal Murder Mysteries Series – Book 1 

2.) The Royal Verdict And The Royal Sentence: The Royal Murder Mysteries Series – Book 2

3.) Queen Crystal, Chris And Penney’s Mysteries: So Many Babies And The Baby Surprise – The Royal Murder Mysteries Series – Book 3

So what does this mean? My challenge is almost complete. Is my challenge worth it though? I think it is. When I started, I only thought I could write poems off and on then when I attempted this well I found out I could write books. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that was even possible.

So what have I learned through this experience and what can you learn from my experience? I’ve learned and hope you have too that if you really want to succeed at something, you will keep persisting and keep going until reach your goal or goals.

I wish you all success in reaching your goals you want to achieve. I know it’ll take a whole lot of hard work to attain them but trust me in the long run it’ll be worth it. GOOD LUCK!!

Should A Child Dream Big?

Introduction

Starting when we are young children our parents, our grandparents and even friends start asking us: What do you want to be when you grow up? It’s a typical question and one that is apt to be asked sometime in your childhood. A young boy might say he wants to be a Contractor, a Fireman, a Doctor, a Lawyer then you have the girl who might say she wants to be a Nurse, a Doctor, a Teacher or Professor. However, in the world today, you might here a girl say she wants to be President, an engineer or some other jobs that is mostly dominated with men. So is it wrong for girls to think they can do a man’s job? Absolutely not.  In fact, some women might be able to do the man’s job better.

Should Children Dream Big?

So should children dream big knowing they might fail? Yes of course a child should dream big knowing they might fail. Why? Because dreaming big means challenging themselves and if they challenge them self well, who knows what they will achieve. If they fail, yes there will be disappointment but it’s not the end of the world. Also, failure should be considered a stepping stone that’ll get the child to a destination or goal they never thought of.

A Child’s Dreams VS. An Adult’s Dreams

When a child has dreams they are usually small to medium dreams. When that child becomes an adult, their dreams start to change and they even start dreaming bigger dreams. So is it healthy for a child to dream big with possible failure looming? Yes it is not only healthy but it challenges the child to go for what they want. In other words, go for all the gusto you can.

Examples Of A Child’s Dream 

1.) Fireman

2.) Contractor

3.) Lawyer

4.) Doctor

5.) President

The list goes on and on.

Examples Of An Adults Dream 

1.) Writer/Author

2.) Franchise Manager/CEO

3.) Teacher

4.) Nurse

5.) Doctor

6.) Lawyer

The list goes on and on. See any similarities between a Child’s dreams and an Adult’s dreams? Not to much difference is there?

So What Have We Learned?

That both children and adults should dream and their dreams should be big. Also, if you really want to do something and I mean really do something then I encourage you to go for it. It may not happen right away but it will happen. For example, it took me 51 years before I went for one of my dreams and I’m getting there slowly but in my past, I have been lucky enough to achieve other dreams as well. What are your dreams you want to achieve or have already achieved. I’m interested in hearing them whether big or small. Trust me, I will not judge you. To me any dream achieved is a huge accomplishment.

KEEP DREAMING FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2 Daisy Mae Scares

QUEEN DAISY MAE SHOWING OFF HER GREY AND WHITE BELLY.

Hi and Welcome Everyone, if you have owned a cat, dog or any type of pet for that matter then you probably know what I’m talking about. So what is a Daisy Mae scare you ask? Glad you asked. A Daisy Mae scare is basically a cat scare where you almost lose you cat or pet. Daisy Mae is my cat’s name and almost lost her twice this past week so this post was almost a different type of post. But the first time you think you are going to lose a pet you get so nervous you think you might pass out. However, you don’t.

DAISY MAE AS A KITTEN LAYING ON MY TONY STEWART FLEECE BLANKET ON ME.

You have to understand my family and I have had Daisy Mae from around 4 weeks old. My little Daisy Mae has turned into a 13 year old kitty cat. So that’s a Daisy Mae scare in a nutshell. So all you have to do is if you’ve had one of these scares  you can call them (your pet’s name) scare. Most pet owners know what I’m talking about.

TIGGER

ANGEL QUEEN TIGGER ON MY BED WITH MY WHITE STUFFED CAT AND MY WHITE STUFFED POLAR BEAR.

If you’re looking at the title Title Tigger and wondering who is that? Tigger was my last cat. None of you got to meet my Grey Striped Tabby cat Tigger because she died on 9-11-2015 and I didn’t start blogging until January 2017.

In a nutshell, my family and I rescued Tigger out of a very bad situation she was in all through her kittyhood. She didn’t like men for whatever reason. I’m happy to say she eventually made friends with Daisy Mae and in the end made friends with my Dad too.

I wanted to do a tribute to my last cat Tigger who was a Grey Striped Tabby Cat. Tigger died on September 11, 2015 and this year marks the fourth year death anniversary. 

I miss Tigger daily as well as think of her daily. I look for a whole lot of Butterflies on 9-11 to celebrate her life.

I wanted to do do something special for Tigger so I wrote a poem for her.

A PICTURE OF ANGEL TIGGER WHO WENT TO THE RAINBOW BRIDGE ON ON 9-11-2015. SHE’S FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS.

TIGGER  

TIGGER you were a beautiful 

And smart Grey Striped Tabby

Cat that had a bad kittyhood 

But despite that you survived

Because my family and I took

You in. You hid in my bedroom

Closet when we first got you

But as you adjusted you came

To love us just as we loved you.

Tigger, you had this cute little

Heart On your nose. OH how you

Liked To play with string with a

Feather on it and OH did you ever

Like laying on wrapping paper too.

I even remember how you liked to be 

Under our feet all the time.  I still

Laugh and chuckle when I think of

How You kicked at  your litter all

Over the place when you were

Doing your kitty cat business.

Your eyes were dark with yellow

Around them. Even though it’s been

4 years since you earned your

Wings and crossed over the Rainbow

Bridge. When a Monarch Butterfly

Shows up with its beautiful wings. I

Know when I see A bunch of

Butterflies, A flock of birds,

Hummingbirds staying together as if

To say I’m here for you and don’t be

To upset or mad because it rains or

Snows. You see the Rain and the

Snow are your friends not to

Mention when it Rains and Snows

That’s me Angel Tigger sitting on

Your shoulder and saying, I’m here

To make sure You and the Family are

OK. I love you very much

Tigger and always will.

You left pawprints on my heart!!

Daisy Mae’s Birthday Month

DAISY MAE AS A KITTEN LAYING ON MY TONY STEWART FLEECE BLANKET THAT’S ON ME.
QUEEN DAISY MAE SHOWING OFF HER GREY AND WHITE BELLY.

Hi all, September is Daisy Mae’s Birthday Month roughly. I say roughly we had to guess when we she found us. If we are figuring right, Daisy Mae was around 4 weeks when we got her. We do know she’s been alive 13 years with us come September 12th a day after we lost my other cat Tigger. So Daisy Mae spent a few years with us while we still had Tigger.

ANGEL QUEEN TIGGER ON MY BED WITH MY WHITE STUFFED CAT AND MY WHITE STUFFED POLAR BEAR.

This is what Daisy Mae has asked and of course, I couldn’t say no. She wants to party all month and would like you to visit us especially on September 12. Consider yourselves invited to her 13th birthday party.  Hope to see you there. We’ll be celebrating all month.

I’m going to show you a picture of Daisy Mae all ready for her birthday party.
