I sit here thinking about this past year, then realize that Christmas is a little over a month away. Wow.
Where did the year go? I didn't realize that I've been that busy for the year to fly by so quickly.
I do know that its been quite a year, which is finally calming down slowly. Obtaining cancer and almost dying three times from that, emergancy surgery, a ton of Dr appointments, months of chemo and recouperation, homesteading, another surgery on my hand, more checkups and tests, which right now I'm cancer free, paying off all of my credit cards and cutting them up, writing articles, keeping up with journals, working on five books at one time, making wholesome nutricious meals and most of all the joy of seeing my daughter getting married and seeing both of my kids so happy and content in their lives.
This does not include making plans for my own future and catching up slowly on the bills of when I was bed ridden.
Wow, all of this was not only a stressful year but some parts on my life this year was very joyful.
With all that has taken place this year I held my head up, and had gotten through the worst time of my life.
This year with everything going on has made me lose track of time and this past year flew by so fast that at times I did not know what month or day it was.
It's like someone picked up this year and pulled it out from under me as I fell into a blanked out portion of my life if this makes any sence.
As I look back at this year I see now the many struggles and lessons that I've have been learned, the stress of this year has made me realize alot of stuff about myself, such as what I had done wrong in my past, why I had not accomplished my dreams and goals in life, why my health had gone downhill, what I really want in life, figuring out a plan of how I will change my life on top of getting to know my self better etc. A learning experiance I will never forget.
Oh yes time has flown by quickly but the lessons learned this past year are priceless even through all of the frustration's, stress and anxiety of my life.

I've kept quiet for way to long about this so called election which to me has turned into a three ring circus, which is tearing Americans against each other, which is Hillary Clintons plan.
As I sit and watch the debates, all I see are two children, the biggest child is Hillary Clinton throwing obnoxious unproven alligations out to the women and people of this nation instead of sticking to the task at hand, telling us what exactly she's going to do for America.
Are people going to make the very same mistake as they did when voting for Obama because of gender and color of their skin?
Especially not knowing how she is going to help America instead of furthering destroy America.
Are people not caring whats in their near future? Do people not care whats going to happen to their families, grandchildren, lifestyles, nation, and losing their freedoms.
Do they not care about the lies, corruption and theft etc that Hillary Clinton has done thus far or what she is going to do to this nation?
Now I nomally stay away from politics, keep my mouth shut as to politics but yet do extensive research on canadates but do not write how I feel about all of this.
I try to make my posts and comments nice, clean and full of advice not to mention cheerful yet all this bickering and slanderous statements plus cheating that has nothing to do with issues at hand is making me sick to my stomach, wishing this Election was over already.
I am so tired of the lies and corruption on Hillarys side that is going on. I've gotten to the point where I can't stand to hear her talk anywhere.
Then you have main stream media covering up what shes done with Benghazi, email scandles, sex parties, and the list goes on and on and on.
Yet she acts as if shes the perfect one, now calling us irretrevable scumb, deplorable people of this nation, hating Christians, jewish people, basically Americans in general, saying one minute shes for women then talks bad and does bad actions against women threatening them etc.
I look at her following and ask myself, how can so many follow a woman like this, do they have no morals, values or standards, are they that stupid to stay away from trash like Obama and Hillary, haven't they learned their lesson by now, don't they care about their future or future of their grand kids to give them a better world and nation to live in.
I feel that people need to wake up and smell the coffee and soon before these elections take place.
My silence is now broken, I said what I feel.
Don't you think it's about time everyone pulls together, start acting like adults and grow up to ban together as one NATION UNDER GOD to save this nation instead of destroy it?
This is a very sad, yet criticle situation this nation and her people are in yet no one cares.
A Greedy Society.
By Debby Richardson
Everything you buy now days requires a credit card, cash or Atm card. Why is this? Does people really rely on credit cards that much or do they like staying in debt all of the time?
National Statistic show that people are in debt with credit cards by 50% to 60% in America alone.
Everywhere you go people and businesses require a credit card. Online stores, Etsy shops, gas stations even some grocery stores.
Just recently, credit cards had gotten me into financial trouble. I then decided to get myself out of debt before my big move in a couple of years to the mountains.
I've been limiting my spending, rearranging my finances, cutting up my credit cards, paying off three credit cards (one to go) and paying off loans in order to become debt free.
I didn't like the worry of how am I going to pay these bills on $700.00 a month since book sales have been nill to nothing.
Each time that I pay off a loan or credit card, I feel as if I am able to breath again. I feel a sence of relief that those bills are not looming over my head any longer.
When I sat down the other day, I figured out my finances and calculated when I will be debt free and free of societies greed of credit cards and big brother watching over my spending habits, the happier I've become to where I will be able to put more cash money away for my new home with out taking out a loan to purchase a home.
I figured the last credit card will be paid off by next April and my truck loan will be paid off in November of 2017. I then will be debt free from credit cards and loans.
I've even came up with a stratigy, or should I say a few stratigies to be able to put away money while paying off these debts, still have cash on hand or what I call money to play on for everyday use, to keep up my utilities and normal bills and not lower my standard of living, but to save, save, save.
Like many I will have set backs and hurdles to cross but being out of debt and my new home is what I want the most in life.
These are my goals to a free life. I've already cut up three of the four crdit cards I had, payed off some smaller looming bills, paid off two other loans in order to become debt free for life. Even with having cancer and two surgeries this past year with two more to go by the end of the year.
Getting out of debt perminantly is a mind set, set yourself a budget, stick closely to that budget, save money where ever you can, conditon yourself not to live beyond your means, plan, Set goals and follow through with those goals and most of all do not give up or give in to impulses as so many people do now days.
If you want something or need something, set cash away weekly or monthly until you are able to purchase that item cash money. Save on interest charges.
If I can get out of debt many others can get out of debt its not impossible. I will not surcome to societies greed ever again by using credit cards or taking out anymore loans. This is asking for more trouble later on down the line.
My motto now is "If I can't afford it with cash, I don't need it at all.
I can't wait for next November to roll around. I WILL BE FREE 😄
A Busy Time Of Year
By Debby Richardson
This is the busy time of year.
All though I stay busy all of the time here on the farm, this is my busiest time of year.
Fall is upon us, things around the farm both inside and out need to be completed.
Things such as stuctures need to be repaired, summer and winter canning needs to be done, winter preperations need to be done, yard cleaned up from previous storms, my daughters wedding to attend which is an extra to do for me, I need to winterize the barn for the duck to stay warm and clean its enclosure, his lamp needs to be replaced with the heat lamp and I need to get to work in widening the ducks enclosure to give him more room this year not to mention fix my greenhouse while the weather gets cool inbetween rain drops.
Owning a farm of any kind or a ranch requires a lot of work and time as you can see in order to keep your animals safe from preditors, and keep them warm in the coming months plus make sure of your survival preperations during the winter months are completed as well.
All though I own a mini farm, there is still a lot to do on a dailey basis.
When I move in a couple of years, I will have more to do on more land, a bigger house and a bigger sized farm.
I've even started another new book about what I do on a dailey basis as a farmer and writer.
There also are three new books at one time that I am working on in my spare time when I have spare time, including doing research about the old pioneering ways of homesteading to include in one of my new books and to incorporate in my life now and when I move.
Recently or should I say the last couple of years, I've been slowly taking my self back in time, getting rid of alot of modern convienences to not only save money but to live a healthier life so that I don't get cancer back.
Yes this also keeps me very busy as well. It also makes my days go by that much faster.
What I used to dread doing trying to live like city folks, I actually love doing and having that satisfaction that yes, I can prepare meals from scratch, make my own bread, flour, spices etc in which I know what goes into the foods that I prepare and eat.
I know when I open a jar of peaches, apples, green beans etc. my foods that I've canned myself will not harm me as to the store bought cans of the same or more harms a person with all sorts of chemicals and additives, artificial stuff a person can't even pronounce.
My motto now is if you cannot pronounce whats in your food, how do you know its safe. So I resorted to canning my own foods, making my own things etc.
Yes all this takes time and effort and consumes my time, but the benifits in the long run are well worth being busy making cakes, cookies even meals from scratch out of the foods that I've prepared and canned my self.
This is the way the old pioneers lived, homesteaders lived, and farmers of yesteryear lived when there was no such thing as a convience store or grocery stores on every corner or a few miles from where the person lived.
Back then they grew wheat for flour, canned their foods, hunted for their food, spun their own yarn, made their own clothing, grew their own food and were busy all of the time.
Alot of these skills where handed down from generation to generation. I was fortunate enough to learn some things from my grandmother, what I don't know I do research on the internet, read books about the pioneering ways, I am consistantly reading all I can to gain a better understanding as to life back then and to teach myself how to do things as they did back then.
As started before, I am consistantly busy hence the once every week try to post blogs here when I have any kind of free time.
Being busy consumes my time but I am enjoying true blue homesteading, good food and the savings from having to purchase items that I make from my own kitchen. This includes cleaning supplies, pet items such as homemade dog food, treats, shampoos, flea sprays, even medicines.
I'd rather have my time consumed into making my own items than to keep up with societies stupid, sinful ways which upsets me but this is another topic I'd rather not go into.
Being busy all of the time, there is no bordom, no waisted days, it brings good health, good excersize, a sence of an accomplishment, a feel of worth and joy, good sleep at night and the list goes on.
I feel more and more people need to fill their own live's with homesteading, hobbies, crafts even reading good wholesome novels and books to pass time instead of going out looking for trouble or encumpassing themselves into crime, gangs, etc. Just my opinion, then the crime rate all over would go down instead of up.
Ahhh the busy time of year and year round gives me such joy. I am so happy that I am taking my life back to the simpiler ways of life. Hard work which is time consuming and keeps me busy where my mind or body won't stop at an early age like most, who do nothing all day but watch the lies and killing shows on the boob tube. That is why there are so many boobs in the world, they do not find things to do to keep themselves occupied and busy all of the time.
A Better Way of Life.
By Debby Richardson
Now that I've been feeling pretty good in which I am gaining my strength back slowly, I've been making nessessary life's changes since my bout with cancer.
The first change is no stress in my life. Any stresses come my way that upsets me I stear clear of and try not to worry about things so much.
My Dr's all have told me to stay away from preprosessed foods.
Ok. Here I was thinking tv dinners and hot dogs only. Yeah Right.
After doing plenty of research about preprosessed foods I ran accross something shocking as I kept reading this one article on the internet from the FDA.
Did you know your canned goods such as vegitables, canned stews, anything canned that is not made at home are all preprosessed?
Oh yeah. Then after doing the process of elimination, I figured out what had given me cancer. All of the canned goods, tv dinners etc. That I was eating, was literally killing me slowly.
Did you also know that when they make the cans, they are made out of chemicals, plus they also wash the cans out with chemicals on top of grow chemicals for the contents to grow fast in order to be harvested, GMO chemicals and other chemicals etc. ordered by the Government to kill off people to lessen the population.
So the last few months, I have gotten rid of 3/4 of the food in my pantry, I have gone through my freezers and refridgerators and tossed everything that I deemed harmful to me that might put me back into cancer.
I threw away three trash cans full of food. I decided to take myself back to the pioneer ways like my grandma used to live.
I decided to get down to the nitty gritty of homesteading. Real life homesteading where I make all of my food, can all of my food, anything I can get my hands on such as home medicines, make my own cakes, muffins, baked goods, coffee creamer, cleaning supplies, spices, drinks, from scratch, everything in my house that I used to buy at the store.
I then decided to make, repurpose all of my stuff or fix up my stuff and reuse it to make things better on my health.
Back in the 1800's there where few grocery stores so the women had to make things from scratch, reuse and repurpose things.
This is when I figured, if they didn't have to buy food and processed their own food, I can also. Where do you think the stuff you buy at the store came from.
It was handed down from generation after generation until someone decided to make money off of laziness.
I also read that going out to eat is even bad for you so instead of going out to eat, I now make freezer meals and foul packets and avoid all fast food joints and restraunts all together. This keeps me pretty busy.
On top of major homesteading, I am now working on three new books, farm my land, take care of my animals, getting ready for my daughters wedding and do crafts to start selling after this wedding.
Life around here is busy and hectic, winter is approaching fast and I need to be ready and prepared.
I've not moved to the mountains yet as I had hoped, but all this is now preparing me for that next chapter in my life, in a couple more years.
To tell you the truth, I really am enjoying major homesteading, making my own things out of what others call trash, reuse things, can my own food which is healthier on a person and even come up with my own recipies.
I used to always like staying busy and now I love staying busy all of the time and homestead. Not one day around here is the same at all. This I like too.
Don't worry, I get plenty of rest as well.
Other people should take themselves back to the olden ways. Immagine how much you would learn by doing research on how to do certain things and watch the savings pile up. Not to mention how much your health impoves and how you feel eating nothing but good wholesome foods you make, on top of the savings that I get by doing real homesteading of years past.
Real Reason Republicans. Refuse to back Donald.
By Debby Richardson.
I was going to write a few blogs about homesteading, until watching a news segment on FOX NEWS about the Republicans not backing Donald Trump, their own canadate like a bunch of spoiled babies, which takes presidence over homesteading.
I've seen news cast after news cast stating that the Republican party is not nor will not back Donald Trump, in which I personally have a few theories why such seperation is taking place.
The first is that the Republicans are being or have been threatened by Obozo or are being bribed to not back Donald Trump in order to cost Donald Trump the votes in order to become president since Obozo wants Killery Clinton to win so that he can resume office and become KING of this nation.
The Second reason is the Republicans have so many perks and more money now than ever before, that they don't want any change so that they will be able to keep those perks and not share the wealth with us the American people.
The third is, could the Republicans be as corrupt as the dummy craps in Washington DC? We all know that the Republicans don't have a backbone and are a very weak party.
Lastly, could some of the Republicans be afraid of losing their jobs? They have not passed any feasable laws in years or have gotten off their big fat duffs to protect this nation, nor have they stood up to Obozo.
All the Republicans have done was hand our money over to terrorists, special interest groups, and our enemies in many nations.
After much diliberation, I feel that the real reason for not backing Donald Trump is all of the reasons that I've mentioned here.
The Republican Party in Washington DC are acting like spoiled two year olds by not backing their own canadate for President and not listening to we, the people who put them in their cushy jobs and who pay their wages and saleries through our high taxes.
What would happen if our tax dollars would just stop?
It would prevent us from continuing to keep wasting our money from both the dummy crap side and the Retardo (new name for Republicans) side.
Boy, doesnt that sound good. No more waste of our tax payer money and let both parties live on their own money with out help from us.
They also can go broke just like we are doing.
Thats what you get from the stupidity of this nation not paying attention and doing research in canadates prior to elections, listening to main stream media who lies and having a ton of weakling stupid people who are supposed to represent you and me in this nation instead of hiding from the American people with excuses every time we contact our representatives who just push us aside for what, GREED thats what in Washington DC.
I am mad, are you?????? If not you should be.....
Black Live's Matter
By Debby Richardson.
I sit and wonder one thing lately and that is, don't all lives matter?
In the eyes of God, we are one in the same, we are all God's children.
It doesn't matter what color a persons skin is, what nationality they are or their religion. We are all the same.
Our muscles are the same, blood is red, we have the same inner organs inside our bodies (liver, heart, lungs, kidneys etc.)
This younger generation does not stop to think with the brain that they have before taking action as to their behavior, or they are paid actors from the Government to intentionally cause trouble in America.
America is a peaceful nation or at least it used to be a peaceful nation up until two years ago.
My father was a police officer (COP) in which he saved many lives both black and white.
If a black man was on the ground injured, he didn't turn and walked away while not rendering aid so that man would die.
No, my father rendered aid he learned in his training to render aid to the man so that the man would live.
All police are trained to protect and serve, not to mention render aid when a person is sick, injured or needs help to ward off criminals from the callers homes.
This is what they do, this is their jobs.
How would people like it if your family members were killed out of spite, your heart breaking at a needless loss, the sadness, not to mention the cost of funeral expences. Or your child growing up with out a father or mother.
You wouldn't like it one bit, so why kill police officers out of spite just because they wear a badge.
Just the other day I was talking to a black lady who was around my age. She was so sweet and courtious.
There was no hatred between us because of our skin color. We talked for quite some time, we even laughed together.
There was no hatred between us because of our skin color what so ever. I have many black friends.
It's the mentallity of the younger generation who thinks everyone owes them.
I was taught at an early age that your actions toward others reflect to others of the person you really are.
If your nice to people you will be treated nice regardless of the skin color.
The younger generation needs guidence, to learn valuable lessons and most definately needs a better way to occupy their time than rioting in the streets or killing other people over stupid stuff.
Police are human also, sometimes they do make mistakes, and yes sometimes there are rouge police officers but this does not give anyone the right to judge one another or kill another person.
We are not supposed to judge anyone, only God passes judgement on his children of the world for he is the creator of heaven, earth, the people and all creatures on all planets.
There is no reason for one person to kill another person at all.
In the bible it states "do unto others as they would have done unto you." my personal favorite is "love thy neighbor as thy self."
There is no reason that these killings of police officers should be taking place unless the killers are paid under the table by the Governments of this world in order to declare civil unrest which gives them the excuse to declare Martial Law.
This is what the president wants to do and intends to become king of this nation through Hillary Clinton in order to rule all nations like Hitler ran Germany in the 30's and 40's.
The man in the oval office reads nothing but books about Hitler who to the man in the white house is his hero of sorts.
Back to what I was talking about.
Do you want others to pass judgement on you, go around killing you and your family? I think not.
So why does groups such as the Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter think its alright to instill violence, kill people and most of all kill police?
Back in the 60's everyone feared the KKK for killing blacks. Legislation banned their actions in the late 70's to mid 80's.
If the KKK's actions were banned, shouldn't the Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter be under the same legislative laws that the KKK need to follow? Aren't the laws the same?
I now feel that both groups as was Sandy Hook and other mass shootings and riots that have taken place in America are all paid actors to try and bring this nation down so that Obama can automattically take rein as King of the United States in order to run it as Hitler did in Germany.
This is Obama's goal according to my years of research which is extensive.
If this happens any and all freedoms of our nation are gone, this includes everyones freedoms and rights for there will be no constitution or laws any longer.
America will be in bondage and captivity until the man in the white house decides to step down.
So people in short Black lives doesn't matter or let me correct that, ALL LIVES MATTER.
Start respecting one another again and bring this world back to unity and love instead of acting like a bunch of fools and hoodlums with hatred and riots.
Stop being puppets on a string for the love of money.
I have survived the worst ordeal a person could ever go through.
With incompotent Dr's whom had misdiagnosed me, to not helping me get better from cancer, on top of the first Chemo Dr giving me a chemo reaction all of which almost cost me, my life a couple of times and being very sick the last time before I moved to a different cancer treatment Dr who helped me get better.
All of my treatments are done now for the last two and a half months. Yeah!
Now its time to play catchup on this farm, my home steading ways, etc which I have been trying to do in order to regain the physical strength that I used to have prior to quacks who should not be practicing medicine at all if they don't care at all about their patience.
This is now the past. I am getting stronger every day and have been trying to do things to prepare for the up coming winter. Or as we homesteaders call it winter preperations.
Not to mention trying to play catch up on this house, animal pens and land besides and looking now for a new house with more land to purchase out right to where I have no loans and become debt free finally.
The chemo has cause lasting effects of my left hand. The Doc said that I either have carpal tunnel in it or nerve damage in it so in September I have to go for tests and possible surgery on top of the many Dr appointments that are schduled in September.
On a good note, my surgeon
Is doing a simple proceedure to make sure that all of the cancer is gone.
I also am looking forward to seeing my daughter get married, which I have been preparing for since March of 2016.
Yet another mild stone in my life that I am able to see and have lived to see.
Not to mention making life changes in many aspects of my life.
A Hectic Life While Being Ill.
By Debby Richardson
Yet, I wish to live closer to my kids in Wisconsin, where there is nothing for scenery in order to inspire me to write.
This city life is getting to me and having to live like the rest of the rhetoric people in this land. Sheesh.
To much to even think about. Having to live like everyone else on top of having nosy neighbors next to you, all nosy whom want to know what is going on in ones life yet doesn't really care about others but theirselves.
I decided to go through my emails and then post a recent blog.
I know you are all sick of reading the old stuff and I am sorry but life has gotten in my way of writing, once again.
I am working on a cancer book, I am working on journals when I feel good, I have doc appointments every other day it seems like and then I was in the hospital for a week last week in which I had just gotten out.
Yes I am thrifty and figure out ways to do things cheaper.
Then the costly chemo treatments as well.
That is another thing I will be taking care of once I get some of my other priories done that right now that are needing to be started and completed.
I don’t know when I am going to find the time to get things done but my daughter and her wedding comes first. Then I will figure out when I can do the things and the main thing now is not to stress over life, which will make me sick again.
I just am trying to recuperate to get my energy and strength back from cancer and surgery last September and the pneumonia, chronic bronchitis, and a yeast infection in my esophagus a week ago and ended up in the hospital for a week on top of trying to catch up on my experiences from this cancer in my new book.
First of all I've been busy with the farm, I have lost some animals this year and then had done some work on this farm to get it ready to sell in two to three years.
On my good days get or try to get ready to start doing personal appearances at local flea markets.
Now this is postponed due to back in September, I was rushed to the hospital due to bad stomach pains, I spent two weeks in the hospital and then was told I have cancer.
I now have chemo therapy treatments to go to every other week which I have been having complications with the chemo they are giving me with low white blood counts meaning my white blood count are being killed off by the chemo.
The doc is trying to fix this so he says.
I've also have a low iron count, etc. just like I had complications in the hospital during and after surgery on September 24, 2015.
Oh what a joyous time I had and how I was gleaming to finally get the family together over Christmas that I made on the 9th.
The memories of my kids being here will be in my mind forever more until the day I die even if they don't come down on a yearly basis.
My Christmas wish, and my Christmas was more grand than years past.
I don't need anything else but to have my kids around at Christmas time.
I will get through this for God is on my side.
All thought it has flown by so fast, I've made the best of everything and have kept a smile on my face and held my head up high even when the bad times have hit.
I feel this is the way we all should live life and be more loving toward one another instead of fighting and separate due to color, creed and nationality.
Who cares about this. It's what is inside of a persons heart that means the most to people not what color you are, not what you can get out of someone, just how kindness and love toward your fellow human being instead of hate all of the time. Love goes a long way.
If you think about it Christmas is every day for God has given you life, a life to enjoy until you finally go to your forever home in heaven.
Enjoy the life you have now before its to late and listen to what God tells you.
If you don't believe in God you better get close to him soon for he will save you because he loves you.
Since I almost died on September 24th, 2015, I've analyzed my life for the better and decided to make some changes concerning my life in which I've already have done.
I now cherish life more and more and thank God each and every day for waking me up in the mornings.
Merry Christmas from my home to yours. 2015.
Mine started last week while just sitting here writing and going through all these personal problems then talking with those who were supposed to be close to me that I have helped all these years.
My life was busy all of the time setting up homes, renovating each home I lived in, writing freelance articles, taking care of the house, yard, animals etc. even while being down for the last year and a half. This includes health issues. Gee, I must be Super Woman.
I gave into arguments, I signed paperwork so the ex could take out a loan on my truck, I gave people money until I am broke, I fed them, cleaned up after them as if they were children, I bent over backwards for them just to keep peace and no arguments would arise.
All they are after is to keep using you, you’re not living your live but a life someone or some people want you to live, to live in debt when you desire to be depth free, to live in an area where you really not only do not belong but in an area you despise, to do all of their paperwork, pay their bills, to do for them such as a slave would do and to order you around. It was all for them and nothing for me.
All these years I thought people truly cared even people close to me, haha boy am I naive or stupid. I realized it was all for them to make them happy while I lived in misery all these years and why for the all mighty dollar to save up and get out of here.
I basically got him out of my life now for I was fed up with the bs all these years of him telling me I would be a flop in my books, or I can’t run this farm and work this farm due to my health and oh I should move to Wisconsin etc.
I did not, nor have I ever asked for anything from him or for his help.
I then told him he won’t be getting anything except the $48,000 debt he owes me, that I don’t have to leave him a thing. All hell broke loose from then on.
I flat out told him this, when it pleases Mitch he is happy but when I wanted something of my own such as privacy and my own life, well all has to go his way or he acts like a little 72 yr old baby pitching a fit because its not in his plans.
All he did was flap off at the mouth (mouth of the south) and didn't listen to a word I was saying.
Boy I laughed at him, I flat out told him how much is in my savings is not any of his business. Its done. I am done helping you for you don’t want to help your self, you act like a helpless little baby and that is that. This is the end I will be moving in a year to two years.
The awning has still not been built. It's now been four months and still no awening on the shed.
Things I may be able to do at home while I am sitting here wasting time on the computer, instead of wasting time putting my time to better use as to how to make money or how to save a little faster than I am for my land and property I want to get and be out of here as quick as possible.
I will be making a brand new start even if I have to be without people in my life. Good riddens my life will be a more peaceful, happy life in an area I wish to live or that God is calling me to live.
Its time for me to start living my own life and not worry about anyone else.
The book sales are now getting better in which I have a few orders to get out for signed copies of the books in paperback form to friends of the ex husbands..
I also have not been able to have any what I call “ME” time which is wake up early in the morning, say around 4:30 or 6:30 in the morning sit and write or sit and think to be just by myself to slow myself down.
No animals to contend with for they are in kennels sleeping, no feeding times, no construction going on around here, no nothing, just me and God in the darkness of the early morning hours.
He has blessed each and every one of you and no one takes a few minutes to say think you God, I love you God. God you are so good to me an unworthy person.
That’s all right do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
So I leave this so called friend alone and don’t contact him any longer. I used to look up to this friend but well those days are over, I've seen what kind of a self-centered person he really was deep inside, my friend is from Wyoming and thinks he is something special which he is not.
He would not have his business if God was not in his life or his new house.
The Frustrated Writer. By Debby Richardson
I wanted to get back into writing. A little birdie told me to go back into writing during my sleep. Hence my new book, “God’s Chosen Child.”
I applied to the best ones that I could find.
It’s been a week now and no return call; no return emails any return anything.
Today I even resorted to posting an ad on LinkedIn for a writing position that’s how desperate I am.
This should not stop me from my passion in life now should it?
Just write for myself as I had during the years of not writing any longer until I had published my books. Yes, I am so very frustrated.
Sometimes, I even want to give up but I will not do this, I feel in my heart the need to write and even if its on this blog.
I will write what I see, how I feel, and more items that I deem fit to write.
I just like to write and will do so one way or another until the day I die,

If you keep turning your thermostat up and down to your comfort level it can make your energy bill go higher each month and will cost you more money.
My electric bill went from $165.00 a month to $85.00 a month. This includes turning your air or heat off completely while you're not home then turning it on when you get home, this uses more energy and will cost you more than setting your thermostat at 70 to 72 degrees and keeping your thermostat on all of the time. Put plastic on your windows and leave it up all year round. the darker your home or office is in summer time the cooler your house will be, with plastic on the windows, it will help keep the heating and cooling in the house and none of the air can leak out through window crevices.
It also keeps the heat and the sun out as well. Ye, you will need to see, get a small lamp in your office, put in energy saving bulb in the lamp and you won't use that much energy at all to make your electric bill go up.
You can save a bunch of money when you buy these items like cookies and such at the Dollar Tree or any dollar store were items are only one dollar.
This includes hair products, shampoos, bath supplies, even little presents and gift wrapping. Why pay more when you do not have to.
The dollar store has a lot of items that are cheaper than in the regular stores and can save you a ton of money, such as my favorite shampoo Alberto V05 I get for $1.00 instead of paying 3, 4, even 5 dollars in the store, munchies, you pay $3.89 or more in the store.
Me, I only pay $1.00 and the munchies are fresh, same with cookies, pudding, dog food, olives etc. can you see how much you save?
It all adds up in the long run and doesn't take a bite out of your budget.
Also go to Aldies which is a great store for fresh fruits and stuff and again bring lots of coupons to save you money.
Since I write, and own two businesses, I set aside a certain amount for each business. I then set aside and plan of how much during the week I want to spend on living expenses and paying bills.
I then also set aside a certain amount of money to put into the bank, savings account and I do not touch the savings account. With my writing money I put directly into the bank for this is money yes earned but also an extra income that I would normally not have.
Same goes for refunds that I get or money rewards that I get from AT&T or overpayment to insurance etc. I put this aside and put it in the bank instead of spend it.
I live on only a certain amount per week, or month and any extra money I put in the bank for a rainy day. You can even get free food when you go online and look for food samples or free stuff, or coupons for free stuff.
I do this all of the time and it also cuts down on my budget as well. I love free and free stuff is good, just because its free doesn’t mean its bad stuff, most companies want to promote new products for you to try, this is why they give items out free.
I even got free books four of them from a publisher because they wanted my opinion on those books and I am an avid reader. So those books that originally cost $25.00 each in the stores or online, I got free savings $100.00 and I didn't even have to send money for shipping, the company shipped them free of charge. So look online find free stuff or samples, and in my next blogs I will send links to all of the free sites I go to that are legitimate and boy you will see all of the freebies from diapers to skin care to makeup to food etc.....
I also leave my computer on at all times, this saves electricity and wear & tear on your computer turning it on and off all of the time. Shred paperwork also and if you have a fireplace or burner, burn this in the winter time after you accumulate in the summer time and winter time.
This not only saves on electric and heating bills but is also helping lower your utility bill and saving the land.....
Make a list of everything you either need in your personal life and your business and run all of your errands in one day, grocery store, post office, office supplies etc, also check your local Dollar Tree for supplies sometimes they have legal paper for 1.00 stock up, pencils and folders etc in one place, you do not need to buy the most expensive in order to run a business.
My business expenses a month are less than $555.00 a month, if I can keep business expenses down so can you, Dollar Tree also has cheap cleaning supplies that are great for cleaning your office and house, t paper and all sorts of stuff you can use for both your house and office and each item is only $1.00. Normally when I go, I stock up, I only pay anywhere from $30.00 to $68.00 each trip when I stock up.
Think of other ways of cutting back to save money and make a list and follow that list closely and we all will make it in this economy.....
You do not have to pay the list price if you know how to negotiate with the dealership and you must stand your ground for they love playing tricks to give you something they can not sell or do not want.
Watch those sales people very closely.
When I went to a dealership for the first time in my life to buy a 2008 Chevy pickup, they tried to tell me that I didn’t have credit or much credit which I did I purchased a $72,000.00 homes two years priot and had a $110,000.00 big rig in my yard.
They treated me like dirt, then they said I was only worth $3,000.00 and had no credit. I had already brought my credit report I pulled off the internet and pitched a fit about this and threatened to walk out, they put me in my 2008 Chevy Silverado which I fell in love with.
I went back to seal the deal at the dealership, and they tried to put me into a 2008 silver colored ram, again I pitched a fit and almost walked out, I told them I wanted the red Silverado and if they can not put me into this Silverado I will go elsewhere.
The sales man told me to compromise and kept telling me this all through this deal, he kept telling me to compromise, so top lung, I said I have compromised, I originally wanted a new 2009 avalanche and settled for a 2008 red Chevy Silverado. I wanted dark seats not light colored seats, I wanted this and that and had to settle for less I am not settling for less by purchasing that silver ram which is ugly.
If they couldn’t put me into the red Silverado I was outta there. I got the red Silverado.
I didn’t haggle over the price but tried for them to put free stuff on it and they didn’t budge so guess what next time I go and get another truck, I will not only have cash in hand for more leverage but this company is not going to get my business any longer.
What should have taken 3 and a half hours took me three days and then I had to pay for the running boards, I have to get a trailer harness for they didn’t put this on it etc myself.
When I called the owner she lied to me and told me she would call me back. she never did so I do not do business this way. The name of the company you may ask is Cronic Chevrolet in Griffen Ga.
They have lost all of my business thus will save me more money in the long run in later years since they all treated me like I was scum, degraded me and my intelligence and told me stuff just to pacify me and lied to me on top of this.
I do not do business this way. I was not that important to them in today’s economy.....
Every little bit helps now days and every penny a person can save will bring them to the things they really want in life including a big bank account.
As they say a penny saved is a penny earned and I am good at saving my pennies and putting them were they belong, in the bank.
I hired another handyman and he took a look at what needed to be done.
He decided he doesn’t want the job at all and wants to send two 16 yr. old boys here to work, I don’t want 16 yr. olds for they won’t do a good job. They will be here just for the pay.
Doesn’t anyone want to work now days for an honest day’s wage? Or are people just to blame lazy and just want handouts.
No one around here wants to do the work for the pay that I offer them and they don’t want to do the work at all, thus also wanting to take over what I should be doing.
Now, my health went to where I am unable to do things around here.
I'm so frustrated at this situation it’s not funny. People want money but don’t want to work. I want work for a fair day’s wage. It's just simple as that.
No one is willing to work with me.
I am used to doing things for myself without asking people for help, for I know I am unable to rely on people. They tell you one thing then don’t do what they tell you they are going to do nor keep their promises at all.
I am the only one that I can rely on and no one else. I will do the work myself if it kills me or puts me in a wheel chair for the rest of my life, which eventually it will.
I will come up with answers as to how to continue doing for myself when that happens.
People don’t care and they are heartless not to mention liars. What a sad world we now live in.
They can go be lazy elsewhere and that is that. I am tired of these city slickers who say they are country when they really aren’t at least not the way I was brung up.
Country people work and work hard.
Not only wanting to work four hours one day then four hours the following week only for the money that I pay then not care about how they do the job or if they do the job.
I expect a full day out of them, or they lie to me telling me that they will take the job when in reality they don’t want the job because there is too much work for them to do around here. There is nothing that I hate worse is a liar and a cheat.
Now days people want to get rich quick, making $44.00 an hour if you’re a contractor in your own business or for some persons off the street, they want $150.00 per hour. Yeah right not in today’s economy.
I don’t want to hear this, if they had a business making this kind of money, then why did they close their business? Why do they live like slum lords with beat up old vehicles that don’t run? Why are they renting instead of owning their own home? Hmmmmmmmmm.
All talk but no action is all I get and I expect action for what I pay a person on a dailey basis twice a month. Thats all they had to work here.
I like doing for myself, knowing the jobs I do will get done and get done right around here as to my specifications.
These types of people cost you a ton of money.
Once hired their work gets shoddy or doesn't get done correctly for the money that I pay them.
Then the job gets half ass done in a hurried up, sloppy way where I still have to go out and finish up after them.
Sooo, I am back to square one, I will do what I can do when I feel good enough to do it despite what the doctors tell me to do to help me walk and take pressure off both of my knees and my back on my good days.
No more contractors, no more people coming here feeling sorry for me, no more crap will I have to take and no more needless money going out the window.
I hope they survive without being on my land, or getting money for nothing.
To me that is just ripping off others and ripping off the disabled people, which is not only against the law but dishonest as well.
About life in general and how people take life for granted as they take God for granted.
Speaking about life I also sit and think about my life, about the passages I read in the bible which is a great awakening, about what God tells me as he is talking to me when I devote a lot of time with him, this I make sure of.
Not that they do not have money but the lies that associate with the words that comes out of their mouths.
Who to absolutely trust and who not to trust at all.
God told me to keep writing and keep publishing my books for his plans for me many great plans.
I truly believe what he tells me will come to pass so I will do as my heavenly father tells me for I do obey his words. Unlike many in this nation who say they are Christians.
It's people who pressure the opposite to lead them down the wrong path in life, smother you for their own benefit, looking for something that you may not be able to give them.
It is people who follow the devils ways but only take you for your looks and nothing else.
The there is social media and the internet, once a person sees a picture of another person they fall in love with the picture instead of actually getting to knowyt? that person in real life. Yet tells you they love you and question you if you have doubts. Thus putting more pressure in your life, pressure you do not need while in a bad living situation yourself.
They are the kinds of people who only want something from you or to make their bad living situation better for them.
People do not change and people are out for themselves and not your own benefit thus taking your own happiness away from you and your lives plans.
I am good at watching people closely. and know more about a person while watching and analyzing them then they know about themselves.
Questions that need answering slowly as you sit and think about one problem or item at a time to better understand life’s motives and life’s ways to be able to live a happier life than you’re already living.
Especially early in the morning when a mind is fresh from sleep, thus not devoted to the internet nor anything else in life but what life they are going through at the present moment.
People have to rely on others dreams and say it’s their dream, others money in order to get a place of their own when the other person is not ready to move in with another who needs time alone to prove to themselves they can make it on their own.
In the meantime that other person feels or is feeling trapped already. At times just to be left alone so they can and will accomplish what they need in life.
Once again the HURRY syndrome. The I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL WE GET OUR HOUSE syndrome when the other person is paying for the land and whatever other expenses I will incur.
Their home??? When another person is paying for the land, thus saving up for the land and house?
This tells me they will only be along for the ride, with no deposit, no return on an investment.
Oh yes, I caught him in what seems to be a using lie since he has no money or credit to take out a loan.
I do know I am not that foolish, to hand some man over my money, my land and do as he tells me to do.
This is the same way for anyone a person meets on the internet.
Not for what a heart is truly meant for and I mean true blue love. These people have other motives and aspirations and your life is not included as to those aspirations in their life, it’s only for them to get ahead in life, to get out of their own situation and for money.
This has never happened in the entire world or history of the internet and if it did most end up in divorce a year two year later so what is the rush in life?
I had no time to stop and think about stuff because of the text messages all day long, my health, my farm chores, my writing, etc. but have come to now realize this situation will not work out.
Too much, too soon and too fast for their benefit only.
Within this solitude, I’ve found a sense of the happiness with my life, deep within my life and deep within my heart.
America will have been bestowed upon me in lightening my mind and heart to end the many problems and despair in my lifetime that I have endured before getting closer to my dear lord.
Good things are happening in my life and some of the problems that I’ve endured in the past couple years have been clearing up.
The more I talk to my heavenly father the more I've come to realize facts about my life and where I had gone wrong in my life. A life that I’ve always wanted is coming together. Not the exact way I seek but the way God wants my life to be.
I’ve given all my problems, worries, and concerns over to God.
I know that my life is coming to gether slowly.
I’ve come to realize there is a good life out there in which I am on the right path now. God has taken control of my life.
I and God won’t let this happen. God is my protector. He is my heavenly father, whom I love and cherish oh so much.
There are many skeptics out of there who do not believe in God and said there is no God.
If they would look deep into their past, heart, mind and life they will see the many mircles God has done for them also.
People are blind and will not sit still long enough in quiet and in seclusion to think and remember those miricles that had happened in their own lives.
Yes there is a God. Just because you can’t see him, does not mean that he is not there. When you get close to God many miracles will happen.
They told me that they will reissue me the checks from my past royalties for the sales of my book “September Fury: The Day Terrorist Tried to Kill the American Dream.”
At this time I was broke. I managed to come up with the money in no time flat (within a couple of days) to pay my Home Insurance so I wouldn’t lose my home.
I at the time felt that I had nowhere to turn, but prayed and prayed hard to God, asking him for forgiveness for past sins that I had committed years past.
In all of those prayers I also asked him to take those burdens that I carried around for many years and bury them so I could go on with my life in a happy manor, without the heavy heart and mistrust in people that I had all the time.
Since then I am living a life of personal solitude and I have a more happier heart.
Some people need to give God a chance, if only you give yourself to him unconditionally and totally.
By this I mean they want you to be near them, with them and plan everything for them as if they are children, but yet when you do not do this, they plan your life out for you.
The other few people well they don’t have their own lives on straight either yet tell me what I am going to do or where I am going to live etc. Instead of creating their own lives without me.
No matter what you think it will not work out at all. Been there, done that and now I don’t trust.
There are places she wants to go and things she wants to accomplish as men have their bucket lists they want to do before they die.
I have never lived my own life and when you tell a man no they think your saying yes then jump to conclusions as to what they think a woman wants to do.
I shouldn’t have to, I should only change my ways and my life of what God wants me to do or has in his plans at this point and time in my life.
I am not getting any younger and he has bestowed a lot of dreams and plans in my mind and heart as to where I will be now that I am following his plan.
Live do things you always wanted to do I always say and I am so proud of my son for doing what he loves to do, he has traveled to Europe., Canada, Australia, Germany etc. and he is living the way he should be living plus he has a great job he truly loves.
I never had gotten the chance in life and well now is my turn to do as I want in life, my kids are grown up, I am divorced and have been for a long time, I am closer to God and he is telling me which path to take.
It’s just a matter of time in which he will see I make it. With or without a man and he does not have a man in my plans or future plans of yet,
This I will follow, he knows I am tired of getting hurt, used, abused, lied to and conned just so someone else can have his way with me and hurry my life not to mention be rude and crude to me.
On the internet people are not who they seem to be and well they lie, saying things they think a woman want to hear in order to weasel their way into a womans life.
Wanna be cowboys and such saying needless things to a woman just to get her hopes up and then drop them like a lead balloon.
I have a life I need to build for myself, live where I want to live that will make me happy, do what I want to do to make me happy for I am not in the market to make anyone else happy.
There are no real people in the world who are honest or caring it’s all for themselves flat out to make themselves feel good about catching a pretty girl who will make them feel young again.
Phhhh no reason to start anything up thinking like this.
National statistics state that 44.9% of the unmarried population aged 18 and older are female.
For every 100 unmarried women there are 88 unmarried men. -U.S. Census Bureau. “America’s Families and Living Arrangements: 2010″, 68% of divorced or widowed Americans plan to remain unmarried. – Gallup. 2006. 49.9% of the married population are women, compared to 56.4% of unmarried population. – U.S. Census Bureau. American Community Survey: 2005.
These people who want to plan your life has a life expectancy of what will never happen. They expect others to do as they say and what they want.
These are not only the words he has spoken, but also telling us as to how we as Christian’s should live to become closer to him.
These scriptures are showing us the path in which we should be walking in God's footsteps to righteousness to be able to go to heaven and to be saved from our sins.
The same exact events such as debt of our nation, mass killings, lack of jobs, famine, poverty, changes to all nations, killings, the destruction of citizens and the list goes on.
This is all for power and money not to mention greed which is the devils ways to bring people closer to him, as had happened throughout the bible.
This is the only way we better our lives and will be pleasing to God to be able to live in God’s mercy.
Grant you, we are only human and at times, we fall, but God understands this and picks us up again. He leads us back to his way, a way we should be living at all times.
There is light at the end of the tunnel that the nations are seeing what is happening, reading their bibles and hearing God's words come true.
You just have to believe fully and read the bible, listen to his Sunday sermons at your church, and pray to God with all your heart. God will see how much you care for him, love him, and have faith in him.
One must have pure faith. Once you have your pure faith in our gracious Lord, all things are possible and righteous.
The word of God in the bible is God’s truth as to the way life as we live it should be, if you follow his word by reading scriptures on a daily basis, your life will change and you will see those changes slowly and clearly once, you’re closer to God.
The love and mercy of our lord Jesus Christ is a forgiving God, he will forgive you of all past sins.
The scriptures will not lead you astray for God is your protector; he only says the truth and knows what is best for you in the bible scriptures and will lead you on the path to righteousness.
Not only stresses with our hubby’s jobs, but also money stresses, especially when a company wants to “Rip” off the drivers.
We as driver’s wives already have stresses placed upon us and this is just one added stress in our lives that we must deal with.
He only had thirty dollars in his pocket and when he and I went to the bank my account said that I only had $24.83 in it, when I tried to get him some money to get him down to his new job.
Imagine how I felt knowing he had to leave out with only thirty dollars in his wallet.
By the time he purchased a quart of oil, and gas the total was $27.00 for this leaving him four dollars to his name.
I called my brother in law telling him that his company had not paid my husband the money from his runs, which was told to him on Thursday of $594.04.
I wondered where the money went, my house note is due and I need to pay this, my husband had no money and neither did I to live on for the week. I asked my brother in law if he could borrow my husband some money until I got a paycheck and he did.
This is one of the stresses I am talking about. When my husband called he told me that he had to put in yet another $30.00 in gas in that truck. Needless to say he made it to Alabama on time and did make it to Alabama without breaking down on the side of the road.
I also told my husband to put $50.00 extra in his wallet and hide it in one of the small pockets of his wallet as well. This way when something like this happens he will have money to fall back on.
If you have a waterbed under the water mattress somewhere, it doesn’t matter as long as you remember yourself where it is in case of an emergency.
This brings hope in my life knowing that our lord is on my side and will eventually help me when he sees fit.
Do not let anyone take away your hope and dreams in life, this is a sure sign of failure.
Each success of you're your stairway to your aspirations will bring more hope and more self-esteem.
If you have to work twelve to sixteen hours a day when starting a business, then work these hours to get that business started. Come up with different marketing ideas in order to get the word out to the public and to market your product or service that you have chosen to do in your life.
Just keep going non-stop like a steam plow in winter.
The more I thought about this issue the more it makes a lot of sense.
Going places like to the park, take a walk, go to the zoo or any outside activities even in winter time leads to a cleaner and healthier way of life.
When you sit in the house or an office all day you breathe in all of the stagnant air in and out all day long. Thus leading to asthma, emphysema, again obesity, stressful situations, heat attacks, strokes and other illness’s all due to lack of exercise and lack of fresh air outside.
I have never gone for a flu through out my adult years. I don’t get the flu either, once and a very great while I get a cold, and bronchitis but that is it. With natural home remedies I can take care of myself and be on the mend with in two days.
You have to make the time and be more self conscious as to what you’re doing to your body and what you eat to make yourself healthier instead of following fad diets or fad this etc.
With a mindset of “Oh, I have to follow a trend of what everyone else is doing. No you don’t.
I also do not get sick but once a year or every two years for I do eat the right foods, and watch what I do.
I love spending time outside gardening or walking the dogs or just sit on the porch just to get out of the house and get some fresh air now that I am in the city, but when I obtain the rescue ranch in the next few months, I will be outside farming which is healthy exercise for my body and when I come in make a decent meal for myself and obtain plenty of sleep and rest in order to mow through the next day’s busy schedule.
Life’s Unfair Advantages.
By Debby Richardson
I moved to the country to obtain quiet in order for me to keep a clear head, be relaxed and write great novels, not to mention be outside to get some fresh air, and to make a regular farm out of this 5 acres. Didn’t happen.
At times I have a hard time sitting for long amounts of time. But I muddle through and this is why they make programs to be able to dictate to the computer.
There went my house and land money, which at the time I had no plans of purchasing until the last year.
Let’s just hold disabled people back instead of helping them get ahead. Sheesh not me I will do this on my own somehow some way but it does get frustrating.
Now I know some may call me a dreamer and I live in the past which at times I do for it was a much simpler time in my life time.
The memories of yesteryear are oh so clear and oh so simple in the way I used to live before than the way I try and live today.
Things like when I was 9 yrs. old I used to not only help out on the ranch but autumn was my favorite time of year.
I would sneak away from the ranch and hide in the woods near the ranch, I would walk through the woods, looking at the amazement colors of fall, picking up leaves and the smell of autumn was crisp and clean, there was a sense of being with God when I was there.
This was my private playground were no one knew where I was, it was my sanctuary and safe haven of the world, of the ranch and of rodeoin and the yelling my granddaddy used to do as he worked us all like slaves on the ranch.
I also loved being with the horses their smell, their soft coat after grooming them, and the stalls, I loved working with the straw and hay. This too was my heaven were I just loved being with all of the animals of the ranch.
I have so many good glorious memories of my grandmother and her church doings we used to go to, how people were back then, the wooden fences we my granddaddy, brothers, wranglers and myself put up and the fields in summertime with its wild flowers glistening against the deep blue skies of Wyoming.
Back then I felt free oh as free as a wild critter without a care in the world.
As I grew older I would stop and think about these glorious days, where we didn’t have to worry about anything, no problems with the nation that was my granddaddy’s job, clothing and food which was my grandmother’s job while she was alive.
All we had to worry about was working, not getting granddaddy mad at us so we would not get a whipping of a life time, and just being kids.
I also remember all the snow storms we used to have, in winter time it was hard work trudging through the drifts of snow.
Back then my legs were shorter and me, trying to cut through the drifts of snow was a job in its self to get to the barn to take care of the animals.
I remember the Christmas’s all of the time. Lord it seemed we had a house full of people which we did, there were 25 wranglers plus their families plus all of us plus wrangler’s kids and neighbors who could make the trip to come for our annual Christmas bash on Christmas Eve. Was a fun time for sure.
As the fireplace blazed bright red, orange and yellow flames you could smell the cedar from the cedar logs that was aged for two years before it was put in the fireplace on all of our Christmas events or what we call shindigs.
Then when Santa came (one of our wranglers) this was a funny sight for the older kids knew who Santa was or who was in the Santa suit. Lol it was my uncle Jed, he always played Santa every year so not to tip us younger kids off, and the gifts under the tree, sheesh it looked like a free for all there let me tell you, there were so many gifts they had to line the front wall stacked above the windows.
You couldn’t see out until the gifts were all opened up, there was laughter and chatter in the room all of the time. The house and land was decked out with decorations through and through which looked like a Wyoming winter wonderland. It was so neat, I still to this day picture the way the ranch was back then.
Oh these are many more glorious memories back home in Wyoming and all I have now is the happiness of thinking about all these memories.
Sure we had a lot of good times but we also had a lot of hard times. This is yet another thought I will one day write.
To this day all these memories of simpler times of my life brings a smile to my face, yes I miss these events all of the time, but at least no one can take these away from me. I sure wish life was like that again.
Hope this all put a smile on your faces.
The Benefits of Travel. By Debby Richardson
Their children will also remember and reminisce as to the great vacations they used to have with their moms and dads, this brings a family closer to each other to bond tighter as a family.
Its again is quality time with grandchildren they haven’t seen in years or even their own children they haven’t seen in years.
This brings smiles on the grandparent’s faces to see loved ones again especially if they live by themselves.
People look at those in the trucking industry as non-professional due to the factors of the way we are treated. Sometimes the way we are treated has an effect of our own outlook of who we are not only as truckdrivers, but also as people in general.
Trucking is the most important job there is and what we should do is become professional in not only our driving habits, attitudes, character etc. that we portray to the public. This includes being professional while under pressure.
Maturity and conduct is also included this sector as well. Another thing to consider to being a professional driver is the confidences and confidentiality that you, yourself can bring by being professional at all times when encountering other drivers, shippers, receivers, the public etc.
In extreme cases, their aggression turns into road rage and altercations on the roadway that can put the safety of you and others in jeopardy.
Some women took to the gun as readily as any man and others made lives for themselves apart from dignified society.
But for women who made the trek west with their families, their lot was in raising children, running a household (that included food processing, candle and soap making, spinning, weaving, knitting, etc.), establishing schools and churches, and occasionally, warding off Indian attacks. Some were deeply involved in human and voting rights (the suffragette movement). Here are just a few profiles of some of the more famous or infamous of the ladies of the Wild West.
There was always something to do on the ranch and never a dull moment.
You might say women of the west were strong willed and could be as tough if not tougher than their male counterparts.

The preparations for celebrations had been long and everyone had been in a hustle and bustle, scurrying around to make sure that everything was perfect this Christmas Season. I used to love Christmas. Christmas was my favorite time of year.

All of a sudden a calm came over me instead of me getting angry. Yes, I was hurt but not angry.
Yes, he loves his mother but in reality rather be rid of his mother (every time he comes and visits me it’s for an hour then he has to hurry off to go see a friend of his here in Georgia.
When he goes to Wisconsin to see his friends, and his family up there it’s for a week to two weeks), but again God will punish him for his actions unless God can get into my son’s heart and realize his actions are wrong. This goes true for my daughter also.
They don’t care who they hurt, as long as people benefit from the hurt.
I will continue to pray for my kids and grandson until the day I die for them to have a better life, one day how they treat others will come back on them through their own kids.
Prayers for all of you. May God bless you all and keep you in his glory.
