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


Life…Precious Life is taken for Granted by us all! Hug your loved ones, say “I Love You” and Live with NO Regrets…. (Words today from a heavy heart.)

~Time goes by…words go unsaid…arguments go unsettled…forgiveness and agreeing to disagree doesn’t always happen despite the love that is still between you…hugs and I Love You’s fade away because you think they’ll always be there or because you’re too stubborn and think it shows weakness…many words go unspoken that would heal your heart and possibly there’s as well…things go unsaid because you just assume they already know how special they are and that you assume they know you love them because you do……

~Life…Life is all too often taken for granted by us ALL!!!  Hug your babies tight and often…tell your parents or those that raised you that they are special and that you appreciate all the sacrifices they have endured…tell your friends and family how much they mean to you as it is often them whom you lean on and look to for guidance off and on throughout the years and vice versa…tell your spouse or significant other I Love You everyday followed by a kiss or two whenever possible…..


~NO REGRETS…. Live with NO REGRETS towards your Loved Ones!  I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it…”regrets just eat away at your heart and soul”.  Fix the Wrongs…..Mend the Hearts…..Say I’m Sorry…..Forgive for yourself.  DON’T Leave the words or actions for tomorrow, next week or for another time because NOW may be the Last chance you have!!  I myself am guilty of all of the above, just as we all are whether we realize it or not.  Forgiving and trying to mend a relationship isn’t weakness, it isn’t giving in to them, it isn’t saying you were wrong or right it is simply just attempting to fix a piece of your heart.  It actually takes great courage and we are often actually afraid of rejection, of what someone may say or how they will react but as long as you try…as long as you truly did your best then at least you tried.  As long as you know in your heart you did your best there’s NO Regrets on your end regardless of the outcome!!  You can have piece of mind instead of regrets and I wish I had’s……..

~LIFE can be gone in the blink of an eye, you or you’re loved one may be gone and you didn’t get to tell them that you truly care, that you love them despite any issues of the past, you didn’t get to say I Love You or give them a hug from the hears…….NO REGRETS!! Love to me is unconditional because none of us is perfect, we all have issues from time to time and often we take some of our own issues out on the ones we love and push them away without meaning to…LIVE WITH NO REGRETS TOWARDS YOUR LOVED ONES!!!  I LUV U…Each and Every One of You even if we have never met!!!  Sending Big Hugs & Much Luv 2 You ALL, especially those whom have recently lost a loved one….

Remembering our Fallen Soldiers this Memorial Day 2017

The True meaning behind Memorial Day is to remember our “Fallen Soldiers”……this brings tears to my eyes but joy to my heart as these Soldiers are here at the Milwaukee County War Memorial Center having beers with their Fallen Brothers from the Iraqi War……

I did not want to bother them but felt I needed to capture the moment as this is just one small way to remember and honour their Brothers in Arms…….USMC

There are numerous tributes to our fallen Soilders of every Branch that will NEVER be enough compared to their Ultimate Sacrifice but it is OUR duty as United States Citizens to Remember Them, Honor Them & to Teach our Youth about Them and their Sacrifices……Gone But NOT Forgotten!!!

I know that as a mother of 3 ….Navy, Air Force & a Marine I get choked up during the National Anthem and anything Military related!!  I was lucky enough to have my Father return home from Vietnam but many others did not make it.  THANK YOU to all of the Men & Women whom have paid the ultimate sacrifice!! God Bless You and May You Rest In Peace…….Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……….Robin Robinson

Life can be hard…..death and my emotions…..

These are some good quotes for today……….

I know that I have been Sappier and a bit more emotional than normal but know I mean the best for ALL of us!!


I hope everyone cherishes their loved ones a little more,

I hope everyone takes the time to reach out and try to fix any broken relationships,

I hope everyone tries to make sure that their loved ones know that you care…….


Sometimes, time just passes by and then in a blink of an eye our Loved Ones are gone………

Gone with word left unspoken!!!!


Two weeks ago, April 22nd I lost one of my Little Brothers, Cobey on Tuesday and my Grandma Mills on Wednesday April 23rd………

So, please know that this comes from a Heavy Heart and with meaning and purpose more than usual with my posts!!!


Do what needs to be done before it’s too late!!!!!!

Thank you to Everyone in my Life even if some of you are just through the computer…….

Having people that care, that listen and that understand some of what we go through makes Life more bearable!!!!

The Struggles Within…….

The struggles within……..

The past few days I have seen pain, heartache, resentment, anger, frustration, hurt feelings, pity, sorrow, awkwardness, tension and yet a lot of Love.  I know that letting go and forgiving things from the past is not easy and that it’s easier to hold onto the negatives than release them and move forward…..I know that I have NOT walked in their shoes nor been through or seen what they have but my heart aches for each one of them……….as I am much older than I once was, I look back at the lives of some of my relatives and remember the good times and remember that these emotions have always been present ever since I can remember.

20150422-075324.jpgThere’s a lot of good times that have been had in this family and although time has spread everyone apart it’s nice to see the love and the closeness and the bonds that resume once again despite some of the awkwardness amongst them, the tension and emotions come and go and I can see it as I sit amongst them.

As I sit here I wonder to myself if this reuniting of the family will change anything, will this bring some of the family closer again, will some of the family be able to finally let go of some of their pain, will some of them stay in touch more like a family should, or will it go back to how it was like I’ve seen in other families?!?!?!


It is nice to see the barriers dropping a little……This is NOT about me and NOT about them but rather my Grandmother that is drifting away………..

Please take the time to try and let go of the past, to forgive and to let go of any hurtful emotions…….Life is harder when you stay bitter, the past is done and over with, let your heart heal, mend relationships with loved ones that you still care about before it’s too late……..

Gone but Never Forgotten……

There are times in our lives when our souls are saddened and our hearts are aching!!!  The loss of anyone we love is always a struggle…..the pain and heartache is different for everyone.

20150414-085830.jpgGrieve, Cry, Get Angry…….LET IT OUT!!!!! 

Always remember the good times, the smiles and the laughter……..Remember the reason why they meant so much to you.


They were a part of your life and always will be regardless of when you saw them last, when you spoke to them last or how your relationship was when they passed away!!

Even if you weren’t speaking to one another because of something in the past they still touched a part of you, of your heart and of your soul.  Just because you fight and argue does NOT mean you stopped caring for them……..this is why your loss still hurts so much!!!!  20150414-090018.jpg

They may be gone but they will ALWAYS be in your HEART……….

Your loved one will ALWAYS be with you……….

They will ALWAYS be a part of you!!!

This is meant for Everyone today, for Everyone that is still grieving their loved one.  Just because time passes the hurt is still there.  Time will heal ALL wounds but sometimes it takes longer.  Please take the time to Hug your Loved Ones, to Call Them and Say You Care, Reach Out to Anyone who is struggling and hurting………………..


Remember your Loved Ones with a Happy Smile as you were blessed to have had them in your life……….

Be understanding with yourself and others and know that you are NEVER alone……..

Life can end so abruptly……..

Our Loved Ones may be gone but they will Never be Forgotten!!!!!
