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
We ALL have ups and downs, we ALL have good days and bad days, we ALL have disagreements with loved ones, but at the end of the day we should Love unconditionally. None of us is perfect, we all make mistakes and we ALL need to live with NO regrets, NO I should have said, NO words left unspoken!!!! In the blink of an eye we can lose a loved one, in the blink of an eye we may be the ones with regret because we didn’t take the time to try……..
Time goes by quickly and before you realize just how much time has passed you can miss out on so many things that should have been enjoyed as a family because of disagreements unreconciled. NO Regrets, Forgive to heal your heart, Forget about the Past and what cannot be changed, Fix the broken relationships before it’s too late!!! Tell them you LOVE them and just agree to disagree and move forward instead of being stuck in the past!!
The LOVE is still there, the bonds last a lifetime but stubbornness sometimes gets in the way……..release the negatives, release the past and begin to heal from the inside out, begin to heal any broken relationships, begin to heal for yourself even if they do not accept it, they may not be ready. At least you can live with NO Regrets because at least you tried………… Great Big Hugs to ALL my Family and Friends and may you all find peace from within and some unconditional love.

Yesterday was an emotional day…..I live about an hour outside of Las Vegas, I actually live where the shooter was currently living (I did not know him). I know people whom were there when the shooting took place. Thankfully they are all safe but so many others were not so lucky. It breaks my heart that this happened!!! It will forever change so many lives!! It is such a different World that we live in compared to when I was a little girl. My thoughts and prayers go out to ALL involved in this horrendous act and my continued prayers to others around the World still dealing with and affected by other disasters as well. I am still in awe and shock and emotionally unsure how to process it….I wish I wasn’t such an emotional sap. May we all once again learn and grow from this tragedy…..we all BLEED the SAME……we all have HEARTS and people United and helped eachother as it should be!! May this make us Stronger and not bitter……so many emotions and thoughts….May we Hug our Loved Ones a little tighter, may we Fix any wrongs and relationships before it’s too late, may we have a chance to say I Love You, may we live with NO Regrets!!!!

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
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.
It Is Just Another Day, good or bad. I simply want to say “Hello and Good Morning” to you ALL and I hope you have as good of a day as possible. Big Hugs & Lots of Luv 2 U All Thanks for Reading my Thoughts…….Robin Robinson
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
As this week was spent with family and friends remembering our loved one and others that have already passed away we shared many stories of both good and bad times. But, we also found ourselves being surrounded with the constant negatives, drama and soul draining complaints by our loved ones being miserable, worrying over the unknowns of the future, of gossiping about others, of the complaints about their lives and those around them, we were asked for advice numerous times and more often than not asked what we knew, what we had heard and were constantly surrounded and felt as though they were attempting to suck us in to the negatives that they thrive on!!!
It is amazing to me that they want the best of everything , they want happiness like my husband and I have, they want more out of life but yet are unwilling to change, to try new things, to try and change their surrounds, to try to be positive and to see the Good within their lives with the blessings that they already have but yet they are unwilling to change their negative ways, they are so unwilling and close minded to see how easy it is to start seeing the Good Within Their Lives!! It really saddens me and hurts my heart and soul!!
This is part of why my husband and I moved a year ago once we became emptynesters….we wanted more and we wanted to distance ourselves from all of the negativity….we wanted to leave it all behind us. All I can do now is Love Them Unconditionally, be here for them and help them as best I possibly can…..all I can do is encourage them and try to guide them into more positive and happy thoughts but ONLY if and when they ask for it…..All I Can Do Is Live My Life To Be The Happiest, The Most Positive And The Most Life Loving Person That I Can Be!! Where do you fit into any of my above scenario, are you a complainer and negative or are you the Happy Life Loving Person?!?!?! Do what makes YOU Happy, surround yourself with Positive People who bring out the best in you and Live Your Life even if you have to distance yourself from loved ones in order to be the Best Person You Can Be!!!
