Will Ferrell is a worse actor than I originally thought. I caught pieces of Land of the Lost and he ruined what was actually one of my favorite shows when I was a kid.
I learned that I should let go of the past. I can't change the things that I have done, I can only change how I act in the future and hope that I have learned from my mistakes. The things that I do, make me, me. Looking forward is so much better than looking back and continually tripping over my own feet.
On that same note, I can't keep beating myself up for mistakes that I made in my past. I can only hope that people are forgiving. If forgiveness is never granted, I can only move on alone and cherish the memories. I only have control over ME and how forgiving I wish to be, no one else. I am just thankful that God is much more forgiving than most people.
I learned that my aunt Lani is probably more likely my mother and that I have more in common with her than my biological mother. Funny how much stuff you find that you have in common if you just talk. I found out that she has the same love of sewing and even sews with a serger like me. She also told me that they think she has psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia just like me.
I learned that my mom's family does NOT hold me accountable for my mom's actions and they just want to see ME. I have been in fear of seeing them for so long because of my mom did and I shouldn't have been. Even though I might have been embarrassed for my mom, I didn't do anything to my family and should have been more willing to see them because we have so much wasted time that can't be brought back. I am fixing that today and meeting my aunts to catch up. It will be a wonderful Sunday and a weight off of my chest!
I learned that I can serge a pair of pants for my grandson in under an hour from start to finish and they look as good, if not better, than a pair of fleece pants that can be bought in the store.
I learned that Christmas lights make me happy when I see them lit up after Thanksgiving. Also, Christmas music on the radio AFTER Thanksgiving makes me a little giddy! Some people in our subdivision go all out and it makes me happy that Christmas is fast approaching.
This is all for now but I am sure I will learn more today!
Until next time,
