Share Your World ~~~ Sept. 11, 2017

Hello from smokey Alberta Canada! Yeah, we got smoke coming from all over with the grass fires. Where I am we have them south, west, north, and northwest of us. One is getting closer. It’s been so hot and dry this summer. We need rain, so if you got some to spare, send it my way!

On to more pleasant news and a completely selfish note…..It’s my birthday today! (Sept. 12) Hey, I’ll promote myself….I’m not that way. LOL

Now on with Cee’s Share Your World!

Would you want $200,000 right now or $250,000 in a year? It’s safe to assume all money is tax-free.

Honestly, as broke as I am, I’d take the 200,000 now. Also, as old as I am now I might not be around next year. ha! I need to redo my bathroom. There seems to be a leak somewhere under the tub and it all has to be torn out and replaced and I can’t afford to do it. So, yeah, I’ll take 200,000 now.

 

Is it more important to love or be loved?

How can a simple question be so complicated? Hmmmm. I’m thinking it’s more important to love. I know I can manage without being loved in return. Been there, done that. For me, I have to love someone or something. Like my dog Sam. I have a lot of love stored up and I need to give it. It helps me become a better person as a whole being.

 

List things that represent abundance to you.

I’ve been poor most of my life, on the verge of being homeless once too often. So abundance to me is a roof over my head that I can afford to pay for. Heat in the winter. My animals. My friends. Having enough food in the house so we don’t go hungry. (There was a time when that was not possible) So abundance to me is having these things.

What inspired you this past week? Β Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

The resilience of human beings. Knock us down 100 times and we’ll get up 101 times. Mother Nature did it’s damnedest this past couple of weeks to test us, with hurricanes, floods, fires, and earthquakes and we still get up again, help each other out, and keep moving forward. No matter how many others want to keep us down, whether it be mother nature or other men, we will come back fighting and stronger than ever. (Take note you despots of the world)

 

 

 

Everyone who was in the hurricanes or in the path of the many, many fires….stay safe, stay strong and reach out. There is always someone willing to help.

  1. Hope you had a happy day, Jackie. Which one is this? I just had #69! Pushing 70!!! How does that happen. I’m sorry about the fires and I know how scary they are. We had smoke again today but it is changing direction. Fortunately,not in the path of it. That would be one way to get a new bathroom but not the best way. I know your frustration. I need a new roof and carport. The carport has leaked every year since I moved in and is disintegrating but nothing I can do now. Not as important as getting the bathroom fixed. A roof over our heads is a big deal. If I had that money, I’d pay this place off and fix a few things, then relax. Those folks that keep picking up the broken pieces of their lives and moving on inspire me as well. We have rain coming this Sunday!!! I hope and pray so that it helps the firefighters in the gorge. Without rain, it will never be contained. Keep me posted on your fire.

    1. It was ok, today, Marlene. Much like any other day. Only difference is I didn’t cook! LOL
      It will be number 62 for me! Yeah, I wonder how the hell that happened too! As for the fires around here. We have one that is creeping closer. The others are pretty far away, we just get the smoke from them. We are supposed to get rain too in the next day or so. We need it so much!
      Luckily our place is paid off, we just don’t have enough to fix the bathroom. So we do what we can. The husband turns 65 in Feb and then qualifies for certain extra benefits from the government so we are hoping we can find some help for the bathroom then. We’ll see.

      1. I knew you were just a kid. πŸ™‚ Most days it doesn’t feel like it though. I hope things work out with the bathroom money. Feb isn’t that far away. My last husband was Feb 9. He would be 80 this next one had he made it just a little longer. Watch out for that smoke. i stay out of it and close up the house. Wishing rain on you. πŸ™‚ Don’t need the fire creeping up.
