The Calm before the Storm.

The Calm before the Storm. 

They say pictures can say a thousand words. Me and my daughter Samantha took these pictures last Sunday 9-19-16 coming home from Jonesboro Ar. The one with the clouds and the Barn in the background is an amazing photo.

I don't really care next !!!!!

I don't really care next !!!!!

What is wrong with our Government I can name 1000 reasons but I won't. I will name a few as an example. 

1. It seems like programs are put in place to help those in need !!!!! The problem is they never work together to get their information right. One agency has some information and 4 other agencies have the rest. 

2. Common sense is for the local agencies, Like, DHS, Social Security Offices, The Courthouse, Child Support and others need to work together. One must wonder how these jobs obtained or can one just apply with one day of training and their it is you get the job. 

3. One must wonder how easy it is to get a job at a local or government agency that holds the personal information of millions of people. It's just aggravating to know that they send us to 3 or 4 different agencies just to get one thing right about anything that pertains to our case that they should already know.

4. Why is it that it's 2016 and the local and state agencies still have not combined or updated their records and facts. Tell me where you can go to 1 office and get things done right. To me their is no reason for this except I call this bad management and training on all levels of? I don't really care next.

We all have Rights -We all should matter. Stop the Racism. Stop the killings.

We all have Rights -We all should matter. Stop the Racism. Stop the killings.

We All Matter, You are not alone. My name is ? My color is ? My religion is ? My profession is ?. These should not matter. This does not give anyone the right to shoot and kill another out of hate. This world has become a place that is not safe for us or our children. I also wonder does anyones life really matter. Yes they should!!!!


I live down the road from you. I've played with your kids. We have all attended local functions together. I am married I have 2 children I work at a local factory. I also have a permit that gives me the right to carry a gun. This does not give me the right to kill others unless my family or my life is being threatened. Then I have the right to shoot or to maim them. This does not give another human being the right to kill me dead. If I'm being peaceful then listen to me. If I'm being uncontrollable then find a peaceful way to arrest me but don't kill me.

I'm tired of Walking into doors.

I'm tired of Walking into doors.


It's time to -Turn the key and walk back through. When you turn all the noise off what do you hear, What do you think is going on in your life. What can you change to be more at peace with yourself and those around you. How easy is it for you to forgive those who have caused you pain? Or can you?


What did you learn about yourself - and those around you. Now close your eyes and imagine How would you like to make this world a better place?  What kind of change could you instill on yourself and others. I need to know that I can and I will live each day - 1 at a time.

"Stop and Notice".

"Stop and Notice".

      

Life holds so much beauty. Stop and Notice it. Notice the warm of a small child and their smiling faces. Smell the rain and feel the coolness of the wind. Take the time in your life to notice the small things around you because soon they will be gone. Live your life to the fullest, but also, "Stop and Notice" take the time to enjoy your life. 


Laugh when you see the funny moments, Cry when you need to know matter if others are around. Remember above all live every moment being happy with your life and with those around you. Because we all only have one life don't waste it being unhappy. Take the time to, 

"Stop and Notice".

If passed Oct-1st, all women age 18 will be required to register for military draft.

A story that all Mothers need to read because if the bill passes if will affect a lot of your daughters lives in the future. 
I placed 3 links below to read more on the stories.

In "WASHINGTON" The House Armed Services Committee approved a measure 32-30 on 4-27-16 for all women age 18 to register for the military draft. On Oct -1 The full House will take up the bill then. 

The House Armed Services Committee approved a measure Wednesday, 4-27-16 requiring all women age 18 to register for the military draft, a move that comes just a few months after the Defense Department lifted all gender based restrictions on the frontline combat units. 

The House committee votes to require women to register for draft. It passed the committee by a vote of 32-30. Hunter’s amendment will be included in the defense policy bill that authorizes the defense budget for the fiscal year that begins. On Oct -1 The full House will take up the bill then. 

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) said she supported Hunter’s measure.

“I actually think if we want equality in this country, if we want women to be treated precisely like men are treated and that they should not be discriminated against, we should be willing to support a universal conscription,” she said.

Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), a retired Air Force fighter pilot, said draftees aren’t exclusively sent to the front lines. There are plenty of other useful, noncombat positions for them to fill, she said. The link to this story, http://m.military.com/daily-news/2016/04/28/house-panel-approves-measure-require-women-register-draft.html



Army Gen. Mark Milley and Marine Gen. Robert Neller both flatly said that women should be included in the requirement to register for the selective service at age 18. The link on this story - http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/generals-say-women-should-have-to-register-for-draft/

Very important link.

Anna Baty, This bill will affect the lives of many women that turn the age 18, and in all forces of the Services.

Come together "Unite as One" and help those in need.

Come together "Unite as One" and help those in need.

Go out and socialize today. Share your ideas with with others. Do what feels natural look around you if you see someone's in need take the time to offer a helping hand by paying it forward. Even if we can help in the smallest way. 
It can be an random act of kindness to one another and our way of paying it forward. 

Let's start today by showing others that we can all come together and "Unite as One. 
In return we can see the compassion and kindness on the faces of those who feel the need and want to come together and "Unite as One".

People of the world. Wake up!!!!

People of the world. 

Wake up!!!!


Ungrateful people forget what they are grateful for. It's time they wake up and realize one day those that do for them will no longer be around to be, Unappreciated. Then what are you left with? Incase a few of you forgot the definition here it is for you!!!!


Knowing that "un-means "not" you can probably figure out that someone who is unappreciated is a person whose value is not recognized or someone you take for granted. We all can feel unappreciated at times, but feeling that way might help us appreciate others that can't feel the need to Appreciate anything.

We call call them "Hidden Strangers".

We call call them "Hidden Strangers".

One often wonders what is this world coming to when others decide to take the lives of people that have not harmed them or caused their lives to be unbearable. No I'm not here to judge others but I am allowed to have an opinion. Maybe others do not see it the same way as I do and may not like the words I speak but I will continue to speak my mind.

We don't know what causes others to take the lives of innocent people then allow their lives to be spared. I and others would like to ask? How can one live with themselves knowing they killed innocent people. Even the shooters that do survive do not offer us any answers to as why?  Maybe they don't understand why themselves.

We all can use excuses like times are hard or I needed the money. Maybe I got fired and it pissed me off. Or I'm tired of being bullied. Maybe that is their reason we can't assume it's not. I know this does not justify shooting a mall full of  men and women or a school full of innocent children that didn't have a chance to grow up and live out their lives as adults.

I call these people, The hidden Strangers. These people are seen by many some we have known them personally. But we can never see it coming. Then we hear their name of who the shooter was then realize it was someone we have known a long time. Sometimes their message is clear we just don't hear it loud enough. 

Don't get too close to me because you'll only see that dark lives inside of me. For I only know that is where my angry demons hide so very deep inside my mind.

Moments from Anna Bee: Wisdom, Beauty, Hope, Happiness.

Moments from Anna Bee: Wisdom, Beauty, Hope, Happiness.

Wisdom, Beauty, Hope, Happiness.

Wisdom, Beauty, Hope, Happiness. 

Wisdom is the abstract of the past, Beauty is a promise for future. We need to remember happiness can be hard for those who have cried. Those who have searched, and for those who have lost. Then after wondering if it exists we start to see that special spark of Hope and Happiness in there lives again.

This is when we can truly learn to appreciate and understand what living life again means. Always holding close the importance of the people who have touched our lives so deeply. As we grow older we  never lose our beauty our happiness for life. Sometimes we merely move it from our faces into our hearts.
