MommaMae's word for the day (via Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith):

I want you to wake up today!  If you believe that you will be complete after you find the right relationship, the better job, the bigger house, that hotter investment, the accomplishment of a particular goal, you are asleep in the human dream of maya, which is the sleep of human delusion.  Any such fulfillment is only temporary.  The quest of looking for wholeness outside of yourself is not the way it works.  It’s an inside job!

I do not normally do this, but necessity trumps pride at the moment...please help if you can

I'm in a bit of a bind because closing is going to come before I get my tax refund.  I have been approved to build a home through the USDA's Rural Development Self-Help Program.  The down payment is covered through sweat equity.  Unfortunately, the Builders' Risk Policy is not and has to be paid for before closing.  I'm a single mother, with 2 kids at home and have worked so hard to fix my credit and get on the right track.  Please help us to make this happen.  You can donate by going to https://fundly.com/users/471455

MommaMae's word for the day:...

If you're going through hell, keep on pushing through because trouble don't last always.  It's only temporary.

Been a little bit, but I'm still here! and now for MommaMae's word for the day:

If you keep doing what you've done, you're going to keep getting what you've got.  As stated by the late, great Mark Twain, "By changing nothing, nothing changes."  Nothing can change, until you change it.

MommaMae's word for the day...

I see and hear many people complain about having drama in their lives.  In fact,  I just had a conversation with a couple of young people at the dining hall last night about this very thing.  There are only 2 reasons you have drama in your life: 1. You create it, or 2. You allow it.  Either way, Y.O.U. have control over it.

MommaMae's word for the day...

Someone will always be attracted to your spouse/significant other.  That's to be expected and not something that should concern you.  What should concern you, however,  is the way YOUR PARTNER  responds to and handles the attention they receive from the opposite sex.

MommaMae's word for the day (inspired by a meme)...

You should never chase love, affection, or attention because if it is not given freely by another person, then it is not worth having. What sense does it make to cross an ocean for someone who wouldn't jump a puddle for you?

MommaMae's word for the day...

Sometimes the answer we get isn't the answer we want, but it still doesn't make the answer wrong nor do our feelings about the answer change the facts. No one is as blind as the person who refuses to see.

MommaMae's word for the day...

Don't let a bad day make you feel like you have a bad life.  We all sit on the pity pot once in a while, but just be sure to flush it when you're done.

MommaMae's word for the day (inspired by my Facebook friend, Felix M. Carrigan's, status)...

So many times, we as people fail to help someone because of fear. We're afraid it won't be appreciated, we're afraid we'll go without etc etc, but our best blessings come from being a blessing to others. Kindness is never wasted and even the simplest act of kindness can have the biggest impact on someone's life. You just never know. We need each other because no person is an island. Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but just look at what they can do when they stick together...just imagine what we could accomplish.
