Christmas thoughts as loved ones are gone…..

It’s Christmas Eve and a time for love, laughter and happiness with a side of our loved ones, our family and friends.

I know this year will be harder for some as we have lost a few of our loved ones, I know this year may be the last one for any one of us, I know that this year may not be what any of us had planned and for others its Christmas Season per usual…it is yet another Christmas….

So take the time, the next few days to spend precious time with your loved ones, your family and friends and if that isn’t possible reach out to them and share some love and laughter over the phone, internet or even a letter via snail mail.

Take a few moment this Holiday Season to remember your loved ones whom are gone. They may be gone but they are NOT forgotten and are much missed. If you can…. talk about them, share stories of them, look at their pictures, this is how we honor them and keep a part of them alive…this is how we help share them with others…this is how we help our hearts heal and this is how we let their legacy live on with the younger generations.

So this Christmas and Christmas Eve, remember that YOU are loved. Don’t allow yourself to stay sad, grumbly or negative. There is much to be grateful for…. Remember that Christmas is about so much more… Remember that Christmas is whatever we choose to make if it….

I Luv U All very deeply no matter what our relationship or how often we talk or correspond… So, from me to all of you I am Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas and I am sending the very biggest cyber hug possible, a kiss on the cheek and lots of luv Thanks for my thoughts…. Robin Robinson

A Friday hug to share…..

Good Morning and Happy Friday!!!  Sending out Great Big Cyber Hugs to anyone needing one or a few….. Sometimes, all any one of us wants or needs is just a simple hug.  Even an I Love You can make someone feel special, it can make someone realize that you do still care even if you do not see or talk all the time.

No matter what we face each and every day we still have the ability to make it a better day.

Patiently waiting for the sun to rise.  Too many buildings in Milwaukee, Montana was too smokey and I have missed seeing the sun rise here in Mesquite.  Good Morning Cyber Family & Friends.

No matter what we face each and every day we still have the ability to make it a better day.  We don’t have to pretend…we just need to look for the good, the positives in life and the positives that surround us.  Things may be going horribly wrong and may be very challenging but no matter what, there are always people and things to be grateful for, there is always something in life to appreciate.  No matter what we are going through it could always be worse.  So, be thankful for what you have, for what you’ve had and appreciate LIFE more as someone somewhere has worse struggles than you…..so always be thankful and grateful.  Sending you some Positive Thoughts and a Big Hugs & Luvs to You All, may you have a wonderful day.  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts…….Robin Robinson

9-8-17 Worldwide Tragedies – Greatfulness yet a Saddened Heart – Prayers for all

I sit here on my back patio in Nevada with a grateful, yet saddened heart I feel guilty and cannot help but think, wonder, worry & scratch my head at everything that is happening all around.  I am able to sit here enjoying the beauty, the peace, the quietness and the calmness that is here as so many others cannot.  I have been through the fires that burn in Montana, I have lived through it and seen it firsthand.  We just recently drove through Montana as we were visiting and it breaks my heart to NOT see the beautiful mountains, to see all the people being affected by both the fires themselves and the smoke that surrounds so many including those not in the fires path and beyond.  We had smoke from many fires consuming the air from North Dakota to Montana and then from Montana all the way past Salt Lake City before we could no longer smell the smoke and finally got to see some beautiful blue skies.

I do not have to worry…..

I do not have to worry about the fires getting too close or the smoke inhibiting me breathing cleaner air….

I do not have to worry about my house and belongings being flooded and ruined by all the flood waters……

I do not have to worry about the hurricanes and the destruction they bring with them…..

I do not have to worry about the Tsunamis that may be showing up due to earthquakes…..

I do not have to worry like so many others do around the world…….

I am grateful to be where I am at yet deeply saddened…..  So, today and everyday when you find yourself complaining, when you find yourself upset, when you find yourself wishing you had more “things”, when you find yourself feeling as though things couldn’t possibly be any worse…..  Remember, they actually could be a LOT worse and remember that someone somewhere is dealing with more.  So, try to appreciate what you have and be grateful more……

My Thought and Prayers to EVERYONE being affected.  Big Hugs & Much Luv from me to you as today is yet another day and we all have much to be grateful for……  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……Robin Robinson

I write these words with a heavy heart for the people of our Great Country, the United States of America……

My Thoughts ~ I write these words with a heavy heart for the people of our Great Country, the United States of America.  Maybe you agree, maybe you disagree, maybe my words will make you think a little differently ~ these are my thoughts:

So much negativity and drama going on around us in this World and within our own Country.  It deeply saddens me, upsets me and disappoints me in many ways but yet I cannot live my Life with negativity and hatred, I cannot live in fear and I just cannot let it consume me.  Yet, it saddens me greatly at how it is affecting so many who don’t realize it and who thrive on the negativity and continue to push segregation from within……we are ALL Human Beings none of us is better than the other!!

I wish more people could learn to agree to disagree and yet still get along.  What has happened in the PAST is in the Past and there’s nothing anyone can do to change it, it’s our History.  You have to learn from it and move forward and attempt to make things better for yourself and those around you!!  Dwelling on the negatives of yesterday eats at your soul and draws more negative energy rather than producing positives.  Destroying parts of History and Separating ourselves from within is such a sad negative.

I completely agree that we ALL have the right to Freedom of Speech but yet when it comes to Patriotism and Respect I feel it trumps it.  There’s a time and a place for it, a positive and constructive way to do it……I would never sit down in a Court of Law when asked to rise as the judge enters, I would never stay sitting down while others stand for the Canadian Anthem or any other Country out of respect let alone my OWN County!!! Out of knowing and understanding a small fraction of our History, the Sacrifices and the Meanings behind why these have been traditions for so long, for knowing that many have made and still DO make sacrifices and that so many have and still are giving the ultimate sacrifice every day.  These Sacrifices allow us to continue to have our Freedoms, the Freedoms in which we still have today that many others around the World do not.

We ALL have a Heart, we ALL Bleed Red.  Our ethnicity, our skin color, our religious beliefs, what our ancestors did, what our parents did, what we ourselves have done in the past and who we voted for or support shouldn’t matter.  We are ALL the same on the inside.  We need to learn to get along just as we teach our kids to do with their siblings and others at school, as we even teach our dogs to get along with other dogs and cats…..why should we accept anything less from ourselves?!?!  SHAME on us all for allowing this to happen!!

In the end, in the final end we ALL die the same….our Hearts stop beating and we go cold….we go cold as our souls leave our bodies…..how does this NOT prove that we are all the same, that we are indeed equals?!?!  Stop punishing each other because of our differences and because of what happened years ago….

We should be Uniting and becoming stronger as a Nation instead of this pissing match of who’s better than whom or who’s ancestors had it worse so therefore deserve more and so on……  We are ALL human beings, we are all equals and if we started acting like equals instead of dividing ourselves like grade schoolers afraid of getting “Cooties” from the other girls or boys we would become a much stronger and happier America once again. UNITED States of America needs to stay “United”.

If you were in a car crash right in front of me and you needed help I would NOT sit idle by and just watch because YOU were of a different color or because you supported a different candidate or because you had different religious beliefs or because you were a person who Serves & Protects or even because you were a prison inmate on a transport bus who may have murdered someone!!  I would rush to your side and still help you as best I could no matter what because I have a heart, just like you do!!!  I believe we are ALL equals and deserve to be treated with Kindness, Compassion & Love no matter what the circumstances just as so many Men & Women of our Great Country do every single day in many varying capacities!!!  We don’t have to be born here, we don’t have to have the same religious or political beliefs, we don’t have to have the same skin color or same ancestry DNA to be an American, that’s what makes this Country so Great!

I am NOT writing this to start a debate or go back and forth with anyone…..this is NOT intended to start ANY arguments about different beliefs and ways of thinking.  This is MY Freedom of Speech and my thought as of late.  So Please, out of respect if you wish to leave a negative comment, wish to debate or if I simply pissed you off and you want to let me know it…..Please DON’T do it on here.  Yes, you too have Freedom of Speech rights, I’m simply requesting you address your grievances with me directly and elsewhere. Thank You….     Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……Robin Robinson ~ a Proud American Military Mom 8-23-17

It is just another day, good or bad……

Good Morning!!  No matter what today may bring you, it is simply just another day.  So when you are struggling or when someone else is being grumpy and rude towards you remember that it is just another day and you may NOT know what their struggles are just as they likely do NOT know yours so try to be compassionate and considerate to others as there is always someone with far worse troubles than you at any given time……

  • For some, today is just another day.
  • For some today may be a little tough, tears may run and memories may overflow as they say Goodbye.
  • For some it is just another day.
  • For some it may be full of joy, laughter and good times as they say Hello.
  • For some it is just another day.
