Make it Happen

The phrase “Make it happen.”, is one of my well known business mantras.  This doesn’t mean to make it happen all the time.  I cannot function when I work all the time and neither should anyone else.  It is a wonderful practice to also make time for one’s self.  Finding the balance between the two is the key to success.

I was reminded by this while one of my colleagues was celebrating his birthday last Saturday.  While he and I speak about our business ventures to each other quite frequently, we both live our own lives and carry on through seperate lines of work outside of these other ventures.  This night in particular, we were both celebrating.  In the midst of the celebration he brought up some business I have known both of these people for a number of years.  Thankfully, they both took my advice and the celebrating continued.

While there are somethings that I may say to try to do all the time, there is a time and a place for everthing under the sun.

True Love

The way he wakes up, always with a smile on his face.

The way he calls out my name, and reaches for me to come hold him tight.

The way he follows me, like I’m the leader,  leading him somewhere important.

The way he holds my hand, together facing this big, scary world.

The way he tries to explain to me, the things that are important in his little universe.

The way he bats his eyes at me, because he knows it melts my heart.

The way he snuggles up against me, like I am the one who can keep him safe.

The way he leads me here and there, discovering together what lies in the back yard.

The way he sits on the front porch with me, drinking tea, and watching the trucks go by.

The way he looks at his plate and then at mine when we sit down to eat. How he decides that his plate is just not good enough, and he just has to share mine instead.

The way he laughs out loud, when I nuzzle him under his chin.

The way he looks up at me with his big eyes,  knowing he’ll find reassurance that it will all be just fine.

The way he rubs his eyes and crawls up in my lap when he’s sleepy, makes me feel as safe as he feels with me.

The way he acts like a big man when he’s only a tiny boy, but he must act like his Papa no matter what.

The way he has filled my life with a special joy and happiness like I’ve never known, tears my heart down to the basics and helps me realize what true love really is.

You can tell I’m a Nana.  My grandson Tyler is two years old today.  That little boy has taught me more about life and love than any other lesson I’ve ever had.

Toys and Philosophy

I recently cleaned out some of my old hard drives and found something I wrote a while ago but never shared.  A little something to think about when things get you down, moonbats drive you nuts, or you are fed up with everything.  

A Simple Analysis of 20th Century Thought:

  • Capitalism, he who dies owns the most toys wins.
  • Hari Krishna, he who plays with the most toys wins.
  • Catholicism, he who denies himself the most toys and little boys wins.
  • Anglican, the boys were our toys first.
  • Atheism, there is no toy or boy maker.
  • Polytheism, there are many toy or boy makers.
  • Evolutionism, the toys made themselves.
  • Church of Christian Scientist, we are the toys.
  • Communism, everyone gets the same number of toys and you are in big trouble if we catch you selling your toys or playing with them.
  • B’hai, all your toys and are fine by us.
  • Amish, toys with batteries are surely a sin.
  • Protesting Moonbatism, war toys are evil.
  • Good Ole Lefty, toys that are violent are to be rounded up and put into camps in order to become nonviolent toys.
  • Taoism, the stuffed rabbit is as important as the dump truck.
  • Mormonism, every boy can have as many toys as he wants.
  • Voodoo, let me borrow that doll for a while.
  • Hinduism, he who plays with plastic farm animals loses.
  • Seventh Day Adventist, he who plays with toys on Saturday loses.
  • Southern Baptist, if your toy is Disney product, you have a one-way ticket to hell.
  • Jehovah’s Witness, he who sells the most toys door to door wins.
  • Pentecostalism, he whose toys can speak wins.
  • Existentialism, toys are a figment of your imagination.
  • Confucianism, once a toy is dipped in the water, it is no longer dry.
  • Non-Denominationalism, we don’t care where the toys come from lets just play with them.
  • Agnosticism, it is not possible to know whether the toys make a bit of difference.
  • Unitarian Universalism, we still have not decided if the toys exist, much less how, where, or who made them.

Isn’t that nice?
