Life Is About Serving People And Lifting Them Up

Visit people often and help them and put a smile on their face.  Hold doors open for people and great them with a firm handshake. It is so rewarding to give people a gift that they were not expecting.

Do something special for your friends. Call up your friend and invite them on the spur of the moment to go for a drive or out to eat. You will make your friend happy and you will be happy also. Spend quality time with your friends and don’t miss a moment of your time together.

Wesley Church

I love visiting with people in the rest home or in assisted living. The people I visit with enrich my soul with wonderful lessons on what life is really all about. We can learn a great deal form our elders and other people that we visit with, We all have our ups and downs in life it is how we handle them that makes all the difference in the World how our life turns out.

Do not dwell or live in the past as you can not change its outcome. Make new and fond memories in others lives and in your own. Look at things in perspective and never lose your focus on what is truly important in life. We should serve God, community, family, friends and strangers. A friend in need is a friend indeed as the old saying goes.

An illness in my life was a blessing in disguise. It has made me into a more outgoing and caring person. I have become a lay minister in my church. I see things differently then I used to. I enjoy visiting with people and having them tell me some of their lives stories. There is always someone who is in worse shape then you no matter what your illness or situation is.

 

My goal is to help brighten or enrich peoples lives and put a smile on someones face everyday and to be kind, compassionate, caring and to be an awesome listener and to learn something new each and everyday and to share my knowledge with others.

The Franciscan Crab Restaurant Located In San Francisco

I had read the reviews on The Franciscan Crab Restaurant on Facebook and Yelp and the restaurant had outstanding reviews. My friend and I were walking along Fishermans Wharf and decided we would have our evening meal there.  We sat by a window and had an outstanding view of the bay. We saw tour boats and boats of all different sizes and a lot of  sea birds.

20171019_175243

Our waiter came and took our order. Our waiter was dressed in formal attire and he came to our table with a loaf of fresh bread and butter. We ordered crab cakes which were seasoned to perfection and they just melted in our mouth. We ordered water to drink and we had an endless supply of nice cold ice water to drink.

20171021_170832

I liked the layout of the restaurant and how it was decorated. The restaurant was nice and peaceful so you could visit easily and hear every word the other person said at your table. The Franciscan Crab Restaurant had binoculars at your table so you could get a closer look at the different sea birds and boats and occasionally a sea lion or a dolphin.

20171021_171615

We ate at The Franciscan Crab Restaurant again for another evening meal. We both ordered the crab salad and it was perfect. Our salad had lots of crab meat, black olives, hard boiled egg, cucumber slices, spinach leaves, lettuce and a special salad dressing with cocktail sauce in it. I absolutely loved the crab salad and the awesome salad dressing that came with it.

20171021_172106

The Franciscan Crab Restaurant has excellent food and surroundings. They have an extensive menu and wonderful looking desert items. I would give their food and the restaurant and staff five stars out of five stars. A top notch restaurant to eat at a long Fishermans Wharf.

In Memory Of My Cat Bella

Bella was given to me by a friend. Bella was a nice and friendly cat. She did not want to be patted on the head. She liked to have her back rubbed. Snowflake and Bella were the best of friends and now they are together again in heaven,

20150308_151120

Bella liked to sleep on a shelf with boxes that had nice clean fluffy towels for her to sleep on. In the winter months she would sleep in a heated  cat bed next to Snowflake. When Snowflake died she slept by herself. Bella would always greet me in the morning with a warm and welcoming meow.

Bella lost three pounds suddenly. I took her to my vet and he ran blood test that came back positive for liver cancer. I feed her tuna canned in water and I managed to get her weight up to 8.4 lbs. She had trouble swallowing and could not eat dry cat food any longer. I had Bella put to sleep at my vets office because I did not want her to suffer and get worse again all of a sudden. Bella was 11 years and ten months of age.

Bella loved cat snacks and treats and would eat and eat away at them. In her later years she could not eat any snacks or treats but she could eat a tablespoon of tuna in the morning and at night.

2015-12-04-13-56-41

 

My cat Russ was always her knight in shining armor. If any younger cat would pick on Bella he would put them in there place. It seemed like Russ told them to respect their elders and tow the line.

Bella was a gray striped cat with orange coloring throughout her hair. I am honored to have shared my life with Bella’s life. I will always remember her dearly and have a special place in my heart for her. My vet gave a memorial to Bella to help cure cats with similar diseases or ailments. God bless the beast and the children.

Embrace Your Illness Do Not Let It Empower You

Illness comes to knock on all of our doors eventually. Illness does not care if your door is locked it just burst in the very moment you do not expect it. Be ready for illness in your life and embrace it. You take control of your illness to the best of your ability. Find things to do that you like to do and travel and get out as that will occupy your mind and give you new things to think about.

boat-house

 

Never sit around and just concentrate on the illness that you have as that is when it will empower you. Try to get out and live your life the best that you can  with the illness that you have and then you will empower your illness.  Never think  poor me as all of us have health battles to empower in life.

Find new hobbies and new things to do when you cannot possibly  do all of the things that you used to do. Read books, enjoy the great outdoors, write, surround yourself with friends and let God be your guide in life. Find a cause to support and help others that our fighting health battles.

20150831_072830

Only you can take control of your life. If you tell yourself in life that you cannot win chances are you won’t. Make positive changes in the World everyday and embrace your illness as you may find  a new you that is also an improved you. You may find yourself to be more outgoing or more creative.

God is always by your side even when you think he is not. God does not want any of his children to suffer. God will help you embrace your illness if you let him. Go out and help others embrace their illness and do not let them get empowered by their illness. God Bless You and strengthen you everyday.

The Lowell Inn located in Stillwater, Minnesota

The Lowell Inn has been in business since 1927. The Lowell Inn has an upscale American restaurant with awesome food and the food is served by a waitress or waiter in full attire which is nice to see.

20171006_123609

I was very impressed at the inside of the Inn. I loved their lighting and the table and chairs and just the atmosphere in general. I love the touch of charm that an old inn has to offer as it is very homey and welcoming to me. I love to look at their old buffets and silver coffee service and portraits and pictures and antiques as I love the old world charm.

20171006_123621

Th fall is an excellent time to book a room at the Lowell Inn. You can take a drive and the look at the vivid and vibrant colors of the fall leaves. I like go to the various orchards and get fresh apples for eating or making applesauce which looks mighty good in the long winter months ahead.

The Lowell Inn  is an excellent place to have your wedding reception. Your wedding guest will be absolutely amazed by the fine food that they will be served. You could stay at the Lowell Inn for your honeymoon. The perfect place to go to have a lot of wonderful wedding memories for years to come.

20171006_124704

My friend and I had lunch at the Lowell Inn. Our waitress was very attentive to our every need and want. I ordered a bowl cream of mushroom soup and I asked my waitress to ad one piece of grilled chicken to it. My soup was the best soup that I have ever had, My friend ordered there crab cakes and she said they were very good.

20171006_124715

I would highly recommend eating at the Lowell Inn for an amazing upscale dining experience with an awesome atmosphere.

I was provided Caru Tuna Recipe Cat Treats from Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100% honest and my own.

My house cat Kohl was extremely excited as he gobbled down his Cara Tuna Baked Bites from Chewy.Com. Kohl wanted more Caru treats constantly. My house cat Garfunkel ate the Caru treats the second they were laid in front of him.

I love feeding my cats healthy cat treats that are made in the USA with high quality ingredients.

Home

Home is a place where laughter abounds around every corner. Memories  are found in every nook and crevice of your home. We always come home for celebrations and funerals. Home is where the heart is. There is no place like home as the old saying goes.

We gather around the table on Thanksgiving day reflecting back on all the people in our lives that have made Thanksgiving day a day to be truly Thankful for. We are thankful for our families, friends, good health, a good job and so much more. God has blessed us with a bountiful harvest of family, friends, and good food and an everlasting tie to God that cannot be broken.

20150604_200323

We come home at Christmas time to be with our family and awesome friends, We reflect on all the people that have come and gone in our home throughout the years. We remember past Christmases as a child and what a joy it was to find that perfect Christmas present under the tree waiting for us to unwrap it and have fond memories of it yet today.

20151210_180007

A home changes throughout the years as people die and babies are born. A new family moves into your old home place to make fond memories of their own. They remodel your home to meet their current needs at the time. There is a constant circle in the chain of life. Life cannot go on without changes in it. We have to adapt to constant change in our life day after day if we are to survive in this World.

All of us come home to die or to be buried in our hometown. We all want to be in a place where everybody knows us and loves us for who we are. I  love my home, family, friends, pets and God my creator.
