Nicolas Chamfort

I loved this quote when I saw it because for me this is 100% true.  I don’t know what I every really go a day without laughing about one thing or another.  There is always something that you can find to laugh about and it always makes my day better when I do get to laugh about one thing or another.  Most of the things I laugh about only happen because my Grandma is always saying or doing something that makes me laugh but that is 100% okay with me.

Josephine Baker-Quote Of The Week

Quote Of The Week

This weeks quote is by Josephine Baker.

Josephine Baker

This quote was on my calendar for the month of June.  I knew once I saw the quote that I had to use it because it is so true for me.  The calendar I am using now has a different animal picture each month and I haven’t really noticed the quotes before and when I read this one I had to smile because it is so true.  The animal on this months quote was a couple of dogs playing and I don’t have dogs I do have 2 cats that I love and adore.  One of them is coming to the end of her life and I know I will have to say goodbye sooner than I want to but I know I will always remember and love her!

Adoption Thoughts: Things People Say

Adoption Thoughts

This week I am going to write another post in my adoption thoughts series.  This post is going to be about my current thoughts on people telling me “I could never do what you did” and “You are so strong”.  There are times when hearing these things don’t really bother me and I will just say thank you to them but then there are times like right now when hearing both of these things just get on my nerves.

When people say “I could never do what you did” it usually leaves me just staring at them because how do you really respond to something like that.  Up until recently I haven’t really said things back to anyone but now I almost always say “unless you have been in the same situation you don’t know what you would be able to do”.  I know people just say this because they don’t think they could do it but I didn’t think I could do it either until I was in the situation.  I never thought that placing a baby for adoption was something I could handle but once I was pregnant with her I knew without a doubt that it was something that I had to do.  I mean who grows up thinking that they are going to give birth to a child and then place that child for adoption.

Now when people tell me I am so strong this quote always pops into my head:

strong.jpg

Being strong is always relative to the person.  Like the quote says you won’t know what you can do or how strong you are until you have to face it and deal with whatever is happening to you.

I guess the whole thing for me is that I just did what I had to do in the situation that I found myself in.  I know in parts of this post I sound harsh but this is how I feel some days and I don’t want to sugarcoat things or make is seem like these things don’t really bother me.  I have spent many years not talking about how things make me feel and I don’t want to do that anymore.  For the first time I want to be honest with others and even myself.

If there is anything about adoption that you would like me to talk about please let me know and I will work on it for you.

I loved this quote.  I have cut back the amount of friends I have because I don’t have the energy to keep up with them all.  I also have had friends that have no idea how to be friends with anyone else because they are so caught up in their own lives and drama that they forget to be a friend you have to focus on someone else but that is a whole other post that I am going to write when  I get the guts to put it out their.

Rose Kennedy-Quote Of The Week

Quote Of The Week

This weeks quote is by Rose Kennedy.  Read the quote and then I will tell you my thoughts on it.

Rose Kennedy

From the minute I saw this quote I knew I had to use it.  I have wondered quite a few times in the past couple years if time really does heal all wounds or if like Rose says you just learn to deal with the pain because there are days when it feels like everything just happened yesterday and not years ago.  I wish that time could actually make things go away completely because it is hard to not know when something is going to remind you of the past and put you into a tailspin.
