Reminder of What Life is about

Today, I saw a posting on FaceBook of a friend- commenting her shock to learned about a friend of hers passing on...

And time and again, it reminded me (must be my age thing that mellowed me) about these:

Love all you can,
remind self to be happy, things can't be that bad, stop your broken-down-record complains,
ditch the job you hate, find the job you believe in and wake up looking forward to doing it,
eat the food (in moderation) when you want to, drink if you want...
Life on earth is only temporary, and the big guy up there never ever guarantees a ripe old age of 75 to anyone...
despite our own perceived procrastination to LIVE LIFE LATER as we think tomorrow will always come.
Count your blessings for every passing day, be thankful.

Last note: Always tell the people you love...well, that you love them,
when they leave the house, when they call, hug them more. Forgive people.

We never know when it will be the last time to do so.

The Mother is Not In Today

Decided not to work today, but failed; Gah! The lure!

It's crazy, today is Momsie Day after all, a day of supposedly NO grocery shopping, NO laundry, NO work, and in my own glorious plan:
Only these pleasures are allowed, mani, pedi, massage, wine, girl-friends, chocolates cakes, and more wine.

Alas, thru nobody's fault but of my own, I have done all of the NOs above, and none of my eeeeeevil plan.

Luckily it's now 1.44pm, husband is out with daughter for lunch, I opted out, YES! YES! YES!

Later, I'm gonna prop up my feet, with a glass (ok, maybe 2...or three :p) of chilled white, and enjoy a movie I spotted (Monster- In-Law, now THAT's a movie to watch on Mom's Day) on the TV guide! TV2, I will pay you a visit after years of neglect!

Maybe I'll tinkle on the piano for a bit, another casualty of my so-called hectic modern life.

Now, all I need to do now is pray that they will have a really nice, and lonnnnnnnnng lunch, and I have a few blissful hours all by myself on a lazy Momsie Sunday afternoon...
And look forward to a big family dinner at night.

To all the Mom's out there, you have the craziest job in the world that not even a Nazi would dare to undertake, SALUTE! Enjoy YOURself tremendously today, this is our day...
Happy Mom's Day!
