The Usual......Usually

I have been trying to be clever. I wanted something unique, understandably, since it is the week of the letter "U" at Ms. Jenny's. Then I decided, I would just go with what I wanted, something, not so ordinary but undeniably and hopefully something to make you smile.
Each day I live, I wake up and drive my honey to his bus. On the way home I usually can catch the sun peeking over the clouds and bursting into the most magnificent colors! So I wanted to share some things that makes you remember how unique you are in this huge world and yet remind you that life is a gamble, it is a dare, we are giving some many days and we should use them wisely. My sister posted this on FaceBook. Made me smile.
A couple days ago I was running an errand and was in the parking lot where the Krispy Kreme Donut shop is. If you roll the car window down when they flash the hot sign you can smell those donuts.....sigh......So although I really could not afford the box of donuts in a cute Halloween box, I slipped inside where I was first mesmerized by all those glazed donuts passing by on the conveyor belt being drenched in warm glaze.
Although I do not believe I would ever enjoy a Krispy Kreme donut filled with a burger, you can get one, I heard, at country fairs! I did gladly accept the F R E E hot and fresh glazed donut the gal behind the counter gave me. I ordered a box to go, half glazed, half mixed and sat in my car enjoying that tasty warm donut . I lifted my eyes upward and said "This is for you ma"! She loved a glazed donut. It was a very usual moment, a normal Tuesday, the rain was coming and it was cool and overcast. I ate that donut with all the passion I could muster in memory of my sweet mom and her love of the plain glazed donut. But it was really a unique moment for me. A lot of the time I am quite predictable but when I think about my age, how long I have already lived , I think, I need to live before I die! So even though it was a simple little donut it made me smile.
Do you ever see these ultra thin people? They are everywhere. I know so many who are more concerned with their weight than their own mortality. They never think about what will be. They want to be thinner, taller, prettier, etc. I think perhaps they do not know the Lord:

I think in life too much priority is put on things that will fade away, looks, cars, money, homes, material things....We forget to be kind. We forget that everyone is struggling with something.

It has taken me a long time to put this post together. You know, life happens.  But spending time with phamily is very important and I had to share a couple more things before I wind this up:

Michael is starting to cut some teeth and he is still such a happy little fellow. He stopped to pose with Grandpa r. for a quick minute.

This boy will jump out of your arms when he smiles! He has the best disposition and lights up a room when he turns on that sweet baby charm!

This is a favorite one of mine. I like to remind the kids, especially Nick, because he is away at school.

The Kansas Wesleyan XC team ran at Victoria, Kansas today. Nick ran into a former high school friend Josh. He attends Adams State College in Alamosa, CO. and is an outstanding athlete . It is always good when friends get a few minutes to say hi in this busy world.
A team photo after the race today. I sure love this team.
I want to remain healthy so I am going to continue to enjoy laughter. I hope you enjoyed your visit today. Thank you for stopping by. Until next time:

You are such an inspiration, Anne.
Usually, I see these quotes and automatically my mind comes back, "Yes, but ...."
Sure n' Krispy Kreme may not be just right for every One, but I love how you describe your sis' savoring each gram in tribute to your mom.
Being a food-aholic, I probably couldn't stop at just one (lol), but this taught me not to keep denying myself, but to choose wisely.

PS - Michael is soooo stinkin' cute!

This is a wonderful post, Anne! Krispe Creme - forever ruined when you have tasted them. Any other doughnut tastes "fake" in comparison.
I'm with yo on the ultra thin people. Sad and deceived, because it does not give love or relationships... Wishing you an unforgettable week:):)

I love just a plain,glazed donuts. Never cared for Crispy Creams. Too sweet for me. You said it all very well. My thinking has always been make the best of the day as there may not be a tomorrow. Live for the moment. You are very good at expressing your self concerning your family.

What a great post. I am a fan of families, too.

I'm not much for sweets and rarely eat a donut. They don't agree with me.

I miss my mom something awful.

You're spot on about being thin or young or this or that. Enjoy life and moderation is the key.

Have a fabulous day. ☺
