Okay I fess up ...


I know times are tough. I also am one to keep a sunny side up in times of trouble. Anyone that reads my Daily Blessings blog, will know I see blessings in the midst of chaos. And 99% of the time ... I do. It's not just me typing that philosophy to fool you all that life is that good if you make it--> I honestly feel that focusing on my blessings gives me peace in midst of strife. Giving God thanks in times of trouble is a wonderful way to keep it together.

Today, it's not that I'm not thanking Him upside and sideways ... because I am. He's so wonderful in providing for me each day. Sometimes it's day by day in how we get by financially. HOWEVER --- I'm stressing out some.

The job I took waiting tables, to work around my son's school schedule, is not paying what I thought it would. And with the economy, the first thing people cut back on is tips. I'm making 20-30 dollars a day.

I'm needing a huge friendly benefactor, who has tons to spend to stop by my bank and say, "here, I have plenty to spare --- drop some in Kim's account please."

How about a millionaire coming to sit in my section? Seeing that I work hard and with a smile? And dropping me a $500 tip? That would be a huge huge blessing!

Stress ... fessing up here ... I do have it. We all do! I'm just trying not to let it take me over today.

post note: My Sunday School teacher just called to direct me to the financial assistance program they offer members through the church. He was thinking of me and thought I may benefit from it this month.

Is God good or what????

Undercover Boss Eye Opener

This past week I watched Undercover Boss, which featured Retro Fitness and one employee in particular, who got fired.  Normally Undercover Boss shows a few employees, with great stories and good work ethic, and sometimes there may be a few problem employees.

In this last issue, it seems all anyone is talking about is that one problem employee, named Jacqueline, who was a shining example of what bad attitudes are really about, and was about as bad as they come.

Jacqueline, who on the outside, seemed like a clean cut decent person until she opened her mouth to speak.  And this girl wasn't just rude ... she was abusive to everyone around her. 

As if it wasn't bad enough that she was completely unprofessional and had no compassion for anyone around her at work ... she then turned into the flippant, defensive, careless girl, who talked back to the CEO of the company when he tried to explain his grievances with her.  She passionately denied anything he was trying to explain to her, …

Brian Naranjo - A Celebrated Man

It's Saturday...

It's Saturday, and at this very moment a few hundred miles north of me, my friend is grieving the loss of her husband.

It's Saturday and this week has felt like an eternity.  I've moved through this week with such a heavy heart.

And I feel guilty for being trapped in this fog of sorrow, as I'm not the one who lost my life long partner of over 20 years. I'm not the one who just got my husband back from Afghanistan, only to lose him to an unexpected death.


I can not fathom how my friend is coping, walking step by step through the process of burying her soul mate at the tender young age of 39.

Brian Naranjo would have been 40 years old on February 29th, 2012. Brian Naranjo would have his whole life ahead of him.  He would have been celebrating a marquis year, when you're supposed to reflect on where you've come and what you have left to do. 

In reading his Facebook wall, as I'm inexplicably drawn to it, I've read the many memo…

No, Dude! I Really Don't Want to See That!

Yesterday was one for the books ... 
I was in a meeting with a sales manager at a car dealership, which was almost coming to a close when someone from the lobby alerted the manager that someone had driven up on the lot.  From the look on his face, I could tell that whoever this person was - was not exactly welcome.
He promptly apologized and excused himself so that he could deal with the person we'll call 'Dude'.  Within seconds I heard Dude and could tell that he was high maintenance from the commotion in the lobby.  He had not only shown up in a test drive truck but had a ton of his belongings inside and a trailer hitched to the back.
Patiently, I waited inside hoping that whatever went down wouldn't be a 'situation' as the energy felt in the dealership was a bit heightened.
A few minutes later, the manager returned to process a paperwork for Dude when Dude stepped into the inner office for a quick question.  I smelled him before I saw him as smoke rolled in…
