Quote, Song and Thoughts of the Week | June 16th

“The most attractive thing a man can do is exactly what he says he’ll do. ~ Word Porn 


Hello my beautiful friends and readers! Wow. It’s really started to warm up where I live and the heat is just… miserable. I keep reminding myself that the farther we are in summer, the closer we are to Autumn (my favorite season) and Christmas (my youngest daughter’s favorite holiday). If you live through “a little preview of Hell” like I do every summer, please share any tips you have for surviving the heat in the comments down below.

This was a busy week. School is out for the summer and I am trying to keep my youngest daughter happy and busy with creative/fun activities and outings. Oh goodness. She would spend all day on her Ipad if she could. I HATE electronics… no, no I don’t, I HATE people’s addiction to electronics. We got to celebrate sissy’s birthday this week. My oldest daughter Destiny (AKA DollFace) turned 22!!! Wow. I threw her a little party (my youngest daughter LOVES birthday parties and we do it more for her benefit). DollFace picked out Lego decorations. It was cute and fun! I got her a coconut cream pie (her favorite) for her party “cake” and she loved it. πŸ’•

I was feeling old that day, but when I was at the doctor’s office with my youngest daughter, they mistook me for her “sister” once again and I had to make sure they knew I was her Mom. πŸ˜‚ I just don’t see it! That Oil of Olay really helps I guess. πŸ˜‰ I just see all the lines on my face and I find it funny when people call me “sister”.

My headache FINALLY went away. Man, those things just knock you down and you just gotta surrender. I was able to get back to normal by Thursday night and I have been trying to play “catch up” with my responsibilities and all. Brother Stuart told me that I need not to worry about writing and get better. That was great advice actually. Maybe that’s why my head is better? πŸ€” I get so involved sometimes writing future post to publish my on my blog and it gets… intense. πŸ˜“ I’m trying to heal from past trauma and I’m learning/realizing soooooo much as I write. It can be overwhelming at times for me and I breakdown quite a bit. πŸ˜­

Girl’s night was fun this week. I love having DollFace over. We had pizza, watched our usual trash (soaps) and I was going to do my nails, but I had a hard time staying awake. Oh well. I should’t of had soda… soda + pizza = sleepy time or what feels like a slight diabetic coma. πŸ˜‚ Seriously, I joke about it and I shouldn’t. 😬

We went to see “Aladdin” and it was so good! I didn’t know that story as well as the others. I think that one wasn’t very popular in Church when I was growing up. Maybe because of the Genie, the magic carpet and her outfit. I don’t know, but I can totally relate to the princess. Thanks to this blog, I have found a place where I have a voice. And like the princess… I refuse to go speechless. πŸ˜‰

My Man screwed up royally this week and well… I now have one dozen “I’m sorry” roses sitting on my counter. They are beautiful. Different than any I have seen. Relationships are hard! I had to apologize as well. I don’t always see the heart behind the behavior until AFTER I have sent that text or used my words on that phone call. I have a bad Spanish temper. I also have a bad time staying mad at anyone for longer than a day, if that. I can fight hard, but I love even harder. Always have, always will. πŸ’•

    Those roses are gorgeous! Brandon would be so jealous of the Lego theme birthday!

    Love your opening quote and closing verse!

      Thank you! He likes to apologize to me and celebrate me with roses, but my allergies seem to be worse when I’m around flowers. So, he stopped and it’s been hard for him. It finally hit me the other day that for him, it may be that roses say to me what he cannot. πŸ€” I can’t tell you how many times he has said, “I wanted to get you roses/flowers, but…” as he gives me an alternative gift. This time, I took the beautiful roses and didn’t say anything negative about them. I put them in a huge glass jar, displayed them for everyone to see, took my allergy pills, sneezed daily and decided that I will never discourage my Man from expressing his feelings in that way ever again.

      Stuart, I bought the Lego decorations at Dollar Tree. The whole party set up was around $8 and that was crazy good! I used to spend at least $50 at Party City on each of my girl’s party decorations. They are adults now and Destiny discourages me from doing it for her now that she is an adult, but she usually lets me if I get the decorations at Dollar Tree. πŸ˜‰

      I’m so glad I feel better too! You always give me good advice. πŸ’•

      I’m happy you liked the quote and bible verse this week. The bible verse is one of my favorites.

      Of course! I think everyone should read your blog. I love your topics and honesty. 😊 You encourage me to use my voice. Brother Stuart, you have no idea how much your love, kind words and honest answers to my questions mean to me. πŸ’•

        That’s his way of expressing his love for you. I’m glad you accepted his loving gift to you!

        I’ve never been big on big on gift buying. The way I express my love is through physical touch, for my touch says what my heart can’t. And also doing things for them, such as trying to have the house work done by the time they get home so they can just relax.

        Thank you πŸ™‚ I’m just glad to be able to encourage you as you have me.

        Yes, I can understand. I’m a “physical touch” type as well. I express love through touch and gifts, but I receive love better through touch and quality time I think. Gifts and words don’t seem to mean as much to me. I find it funny how we can give love one way and receive it another. While he expresses love through physical touch to me (excessively), he is really big on giving gifts and cards. I think he might receive love through words and quality time, the most. Words are HUGE with him and he’s always complaining about not having enough time with me. πŸ€”

        I’m happy I encourage you.πŸ’•


      • Stuart L. Tutt says:

        Yeah, I find it odd that we can express it one way and yet receive it differently.
        Angie and I did the “quiz” to see each other love language. Then we made sure to meet those needs. She need physical touch and quality time, which I was more than happy to give her πŸ™‚ Mine was words of affirmation and physical touch and she supplied those.

      That’s so cool! I never heard that name back then. My mother was wearing a piece of jewelry one day when I was younger and it said, β€œDestiny” on it. I loved that for a baby name. I told her I was going to name my daughter that one day. 😊

      Me too! I hope you are fully recovered. My youngest seems to finally be getting over it. I got her a cool mist humidifier like mine and I run it in her room every night. She likes it. She calls it, β€œCold water machine”. πŸ˜‚ I do think they help though. We are both doing better with them.

        I was a teenager when I had picked out the name. I was reading a romance novel, (no surprise from a teenager right?! πŸ˜‚) and had read in the synopsis on the back of the book, something like, β€œDestiny awaited him or them.” It was about a woman that got kidnapped and wound up on a pirate ship and she fell in love with the pirate captain, of course! Her name was something else, but when I read that, I said wow! That would make for a pretty girl name! But I guess it was t meant to be…lol

    You throw the best celebrations!!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ thank you so much for all the love you put into our birthdays and holidays. You truly make them special, ranging from decorations and dessert to lots of hugs and the most thoughtful gifts. I’m so blessed to have you for my mom 😊❀

    You will always look young, you’re beautiful, sis…wait, I mean, Mom! πŸ˜‰

    I loved girl’s night and especially getting to see Aladdin with you and sissy! That was a blast and it was a good movie! πŸ˜€ you are officially Princess Jasmine! πŸ―πŸŒΉπŸ‘Έ

    Thank you so much for mentioning my posts, Mama! Your writing is the best though. You write straight from your heart, even when it feels broken and you don’t want to keep going. I and so many other people admire you for that πŸ’•

      Thank you sweetheart! I’m glad you agree to let me do it. πŸ˜‰

      πŸ˜‚ Okay, “sister”. I guess we are technically sisters in Christ, hmmm….πŸ€”

      Girl’s night are the best. I shall miss them when you graduate next year. 😭 I loved seeing Aladdin with you! I had no idea I was Jasmine! That was funny. πŸ’•

      Of course! You are my favorite blogger. πŸ˜‰πŸ’•

      Thank you! πŸ’• Straight is the only way I shoot. πŸ˜‰

        I’m gonna miss you too 😭 I’m hoping things don’t change much. I love spending time with you. You’re my mom in every way that matters when it comes to parenting and sacrificing for me and sissy, but you will always be my best friend and practically sister. It’s us till the end! πŸ˜‰

        You’re my favorite blogger and I would’ve stopped blogging a long time ago if it weren’t for you. I’m so glad you enjoy it and it’s become an outlet for you. You deserve to have a voice, just like Jasmine 😊❀
