It’s Going To Be Alright

The next couple of week are tough weeks for me. There just are a lot of things that have happened in the months of November – January that were life changing.

I was trying to find a song that would help me through these next few months and I found this one in my YouTube list of songs from 2014. “It’s Going To Be Alright” by Sara Groves.

I have no idea where I heard this song, but it had to mean something to me if I found it on YouTube and saved it since 2014. But I really need to believe in my heart that everything will be alright. I really want karma to kick in, but I know it doesn’t work that way.

I thought I was over certain things, but something has been creepy up on me and I am letting it the best of me. I need to think of all the positive things that I have happened to me and not dwell on the bad stuff.

So I am going to listen to this song a couple of more times. I am going to believe that everything will be alright.

“It’ Going To Be Alright”

It’s going to be alright
It’s going to be alright
I can tell by your eyes that you’re not getting any sleep
And you try to rise above it, but feel you’re sinking in too deep
Oh, oh I believe, I believe that
It’s going to be alright
It’s going to be alright
I believe you’ll outlive this pain in you heart
And you’ll gain such a strength from what is tearing you apart
Oh, oh I believe I believe that
It’s going to be alright
It’s going to be alright
When some time has past us, and the story if retold
It will mirror the strength and the courage in your soul
Oh, oh, I believe I believe,
I believe
I believe
I did not come here to offer you cliches
I will not pretend to know of all your pain
Just when you cannot, then I will hold out faith, for you
It’s going to be alright
It’s going to be alright
Songwriters: Gordon S. Kennedy / Sara Groves

Random Pictures

Here are some random pictures that I’ve taken lately.


Went to Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth for the NASCAR race.


Love taking pictures of the mileage on my car… 020202.


One of my favorite places in San Antonio, The Tobin Center.


Downtown San Antonio.


Need to top last Christmas Texas Boil this year.

So True… Not Going To Forget

Sometimes, Iat be a lite dramatic. But when I saw this, it hit the nail on the head 100%. The person may never know what they did to me… but I do. 

So, this is me. I don’t trust easily and when I do, it means everything to me. It was a friendship, nothing major, but that friendship meant something to me. 

You mess up that trust… Your loss!

Here Is Your Sign

Well, my previous post was about being burnt by someone who I thought I could trust. 

I saw this and it told me what my next step should be. 

One year is too long to feel the way I have been. I will not let that person have that power over me anymore. 

Time to be free!

Too Funny

Saw this post on Facebook and it was spot on for what I think now as I’m getting older.

Make it a great day. 

I <3 Port Aransas, Texas

I met up with a co-worker and her friends at Port Aransas yesterday afternoon. 

I got are start, but I really needed to see the water. So I left in the afternoon and it was still sunny out and there was a cool breeze from the Gulf of Mexico. 

I had a great time. I met some great people. And we laughed and talked like we have known each other for a long time. 

Here are some of the pictures that I took.

The Gulf of Mexico. 

My shadow. 

The sunset was beautiful.

The moon was so pretty reflecting in the Gulf. 

I can’t wait till the next time I go to Port Arkansas or meet up the new friends I made. 

Side Note:

For those who know how much I love driving on the beach in Port A aka… driving in the Gulf of Mexico… I didn’t this time. The tide didn’t come up to the dunes this time. 😁

Also, meeting these new people and hanging out with them, showed me that there are good people out there. I need to forget the ones that crushed me and questioned me trusting people. 

Born Between 1930’s – 1980’s

I’ve shared something like this before. But I wanted to share it again. It amazes me the young people now a days have no idea of what people before them went through or have done. 

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL BORN IN 1930’s, 1940’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and Early 80’s !!! 

First, you survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a tin, and didn’t get tested for diabetes. Then after that trauma, your baby cots were covered with bright colored lead-based paints. You had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when you rode your bikes, you had no helmets, not to mention, the risks you took hitchhiking .. 

As children, you would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags. Riding in the back of a van – loose – was always great fun. You drank water from the garden hosepipe and NOT from a bottle. You shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this. You ate cakes, white bread and real butter and drank pop with sugar in it, but you weren’t overweight because…… 

YOU WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!! You would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on. No one was able to reach you all day. And you were OK. You would spend hours building your go-carts out of scraps and then ride down the hill, only to find out you forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, you learned to solve the problem . You did not have Playstations, Nintendo’s, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 99 channels on cable, no video tape movies, no surround sound, no mobile phones, no text messaging, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chat rooms……….

YOU HAD FRIENDS and you went outside and found them! You fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents you played with worms(well most boys did) and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever. You made up games with sticks and tennis balls and although you were told it would happen, you did not poke out any eyes. You rode bikes or walked to a friend’s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just yelled for them! Local teams had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn’t had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!! The idea of a parent bailing you out if you broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law! This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever! The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. You had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and you learned 

HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL! And YOU are one of them! 

CONGRATULATIONS! You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated our lives for our own good. And while you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave their parents were.
