Ultimate Blog Hop!

Hello one and all! If this is your first time visiting the ole' Jonesie then please let me explain a little. I write on a variety of topics. (basically whatever may pop into my head or even whatever rant I have for the day.) Some things are a little out there, I admit. But honestly, I have spent so much of my life worrying about what others think that when I finally released myself from the "rules and roles of society" I really began to find myself. So, my request is that you read more than just one post before you decide. I promise somewhere along the way I am sure you will say what so many others have said at one time or another: Jonesie, you simply say what others only think in their heads!

Thinking About the Past

I logged onto Facebook this morning and as usual began to read the abundance of posts for this cause or that.  As usual I quickly skimmed them with my usual attitude of whatever, yeah, yeah, yeah attitude but then one of them caught my eye.
When you look back on your life: yesterday, a week ago, a year ago... Can you say, "I am proud of myself! I did what was right!" or have you done wrong things? Is there shame?
Only you can change your life. Make what you do everyday be good -- something you'd be proud to tell your child(ren). Have good values:)

 ---  Looking back on my life can I say I am proud?  Yes, I can and I am very sure of that answer.  I am proud of the OUTCOME of the events in my life.  I am not happy with many things I had to endure from early childhood on and I know that I am not happy with each decision I made throughout my life but at this point I can say that I have matured enough to realize that I would not be the person I am today without each and every one of them.  I am completely happy being married to my soul mate.  He is a man that accepts me for who I am and offers an enormous amount of patience with my baggage, attitude and every other idiosyncrasy that I have.  My children and I have come full circle in our relationships realizing that life is just too short to argue and hold onto grudges.  Time and events have shown me what a true friend really is about and my over all outlook on life has changed with me holding onto the moment a little longer so that each and every one counts for as much as it possibly can.   So, yes there are things that I have done, said and experienced that weren't the best but shame me about them you can't; for I will only smile and remind myself that God is the one in control.  And by the way: He loves us for who we are, faults, bad decisions and all!


  1. Awe, sissy! I'm glad my post made it into your blog:):):)
    This is something a friend & I were talking about yesterday & I wanted to share it with FB... We can't control the past-- but we can control the future.. Making the right choices & be proud of who we are as a whole.. Making it be better for our child(ren).

  2. My baby sissy, always always remember this! You have a handle on this much sooner than I ever did and hopefully it will guide you and support you throughout your life.

    I lost so much time being ashamed of my childhood and thus was lost for so many years! I am now settled, happy and loved by a wonderful man whom I couldn't live without!

    WE DO DESERVE to have a good, happy and satisfying life! I love you baby! (Yes you are and always will be my baby!)

  3. Thats what drives me...making sure my child(ren) won't have a childhood like ours... They'll know what it means to have a family life. (u kno what I mean) & love, fun, kindness, ect.....

    Not to say we haven't wanted to tell our mother: "hahahaha, I've made it, I have a loving family, & am happy with my life." However... That'd be sinking down to her level...

    Live, laugh, & love!!!!
    Live, laugh, & love!!!!!!

  4. Live, laugh, & love!!!!
    Live, laugh, & love!!!!!!

    Now, you see why I chose the charm I gave you at your wedding! :)


Come on! Make my day! Even a measly word or two can make me smile! Leave a comment!
