Day 2744: Life Choices

Every day, we make life choices which affect outcomes in ways we might not expect. Some of us are privileged enough to have more choices than others.

Today, I’m making the choice to share all these moments of my life from yesterday:

I like life choices that Jimmy Kimmel made on his show on Friday night.

My life choices always include gratitude, so thanks to all who visited this blog, here and now.

Day 2723: Happy Mother’s Day!

Yesterday, the day before Mother’s Day, I was happy to look at all the posts on our cat Oscar’s  Facebook page, including this one from four years ago:

Here’s another post from Oscar’s Facebook page that I’m especially happy to share on Mother’s Day:

This mother of Aaron will be happy to share more posts from Oscar’s Facebook page (which has the title “Oscarthenonjudgmentalcat”) over the coming days.

In the meantime, let’s celebrate Mother’s Day on this Polar Vortex weekend with these photos taken yesterday by a mother:

You may call me nuts, but it’s made me very unhappy to witness many wonderful mothers shamed (by others and themselves) for being “fat” or “old.” Therefore, I posted this selfie yesterday on my Facebook page yesterday with the caption “Does this mask make me look fat?”

And I posted this one with the caption “Does this mask make me look old?”

That seemed to make some mothers and others happy.

This recent Jimmy Kimmel segment with texts from celebrities’ mothers made this blogging mother happily laugh out loud:

Jimmy Kimmel says at the end of that edition of Mom Texts, “Happy worst Mother’s Day ever.” Do you agree? If you give this mother the gift of a comment below, it will make me  happy.

Thanks to all the mothers and others who help me happily create this blog, every day!

Day 2065: Unspeakable

For the first time in my life, I have laryngitis, which means most things are unspeakable for me right now.

After reading the news today, I can’t speak about some unspeakable stories.  However, I can write my thoughts and feelings here.

It’s unspeakable to me how many mass shootings there are in the USA.  When my son got into the University of Edinburgh and a few USA colleges in 2016, I spoke to him about my preference of where he might go to school. I spoke of my belief that he would be safer outside of the USA because of all the unspeakable school shootings and the unspeakble access to guns here.

It’s also unspeakable to me how a person in power can speak unspeakably unkindly about other people, even war heroes.

Even though my thoughts and feelings are unspeakable right now, I can still share photos from my first day back in the USA.

Yes, Michael’s meals are unspeakably good. I can’t speak to why we saw coconuts on the beach yesterday.

Here‘s Jimmy Kimmel speaking about President Trump’s attempt to speak directly to Hindi-speakers.

 

Please feel free to share speakable and unspeakable thoughts and feelings in the comments section, below.

As always, I need to somehow speak my gratitude to those who helped me create this unspeakable blog post and — of course! — to YOU.
