Think Positive!

Good morning after a restless night I awoke this morning to a clear sunny day. 56F anding for a high 72F. I dream about my Father who I haven’t thought about for a long time. My arms are itching today.

It started yesterday I felt God was telling me I needed to forgive my father. My feeling was hidden deep I didn’t even realize it in the early evening. I was tired but couldn’t sleep. I dream of my Father yesterday.

When I was about 3 years old my father decided to teach me how to ride a bicycle. This was in the 1930s and training wheels were unheard of. My mother and her friends said I was too young. My father put me on a bicycle. Of course, I fell and I was crying and the adults forgot me. I assume I have been the cause of yelling all my life. Result: I never learn to ride a bike.


I had a salad, pork roast, a baked potato with the trimmings, and mixed vegetables. The dessert was vanilla ice cream.

Nicole was here this afternoon and we got a lot of the retape down.


I had broth from soup, shrimp, and a cabbage salad Dessert was a cake again.


Not is happening in the garden, the tulips are about gone. The iris buds are getting bigger. It is 70F out now but showers will cool it down


I am still reading THE GHOST AND MRS JEFFRIES, but I order a couple of books later tonight.

I had a number of pictures but cyberspace took them.

    Sometimes we don’t realize we have those thoughts and feelings buried deep. I hope you sleep better tonight Betty.

    I guess talking to a counselor has brought some of these memories back. I hope that is a positive thing so you can deal with them. I hope you enjoy the irises when they bloom. We have our first two iris blooms and a lot of buds. This was not our house last year at this time so it is exciting to see them.
