I hear the train a comin'

I woke up nice and early this morning.  I have a nice sense of peace.  Sometimes all it takes with me is the right song.  I am a huge Johnny Cash fan.  Folsom Prison was on my play list first thing.  Than, Jackson.  I am now happy.  It's the little things in life people.  Who knew?  I refuse to suffer and cry about my distraught life.  Angst is not my thing these days.  I don't do the "poor me thing".  Tina, sis-in-law is very proper in public, doesn't like to be seen without lipstick etc.  I now have corrupted her to where she now will drive to the corner store in her pajamas and slippers. She won't get out of the car yet, sends me in, but give me time, lol.  Since we both were married to brother's that died young, I am trying to explain to her that she is much stronger than she even knows.  I am still learning. I know that life is short, can end in the blink of an eye. So before my eye blink comes I have much to do.  Places to go and people to enjoy.  So if you wake up today feeling shitty and grouchy, put some good music on and tune out the negativity.  Savor the taste of your coffee/tea.  Be thankful that even though times are hard for alot of us, that you are wiping your bottom with real toilet paper instead of napkins from McDonald's.  Seriously.  I remember waking up without a dollar to my name, and it was my own stupidity that I was broke.  I learned my lessons.  I grab my joy however I can, kind of like sticking your tongue out to catch a snowflake.  Have a beautiful Saturday and when you are driving or walking turn the music up and it might just heal whatever ails you....Peace!

Oh man here you go telling all of my early morning secrets to starting the days off right. That's OK though more people need to hear it.

I want to reach through the computer and give you the biggest *hug*..you have come SO FAR.

Love you, Lori, you are beautiful.

Thanks for that bit of wisdom Lori. . . I'd "forgotten" to listen to music for a week or so. I caught up today though and you're right, it can be so healing and uplifting. I'm quite new to Johnny Cash so I'll go and give that "Folsom Prison" a listening to.
My ex used to come back from scoring with loo rols from the trains and batteries from the hand driers for our torches when the electric had gone. It's good to find joy in so many small details.

Whitemist- Aw I don't consider you mean. I'm game to particpate. I'd love to learn more about you!

WM- Sorry, I thought it was only my secret. Now I know that I have a kindred spirit in Detroit. I love the Man In Black...and you as well my love.

Lou- Thank you for the complement. I'm hoping one day that we can actually meet face to face. I will give you the hugest hug you have ever recieved. xoxo

bugerlugs63- Girl, music keeps me sane. I love 80s and 90s alternative. It's always the little things I have learned, that bring bits of happiness;Be well and be happy.
