About shalilah2002

Love music especially rhythm and blues. I also like organizing and have a blog giving organizingtips. There are many things and interests I have too many to mention here. However I will tell more about myself later.

Fun and serious

I usually write serious.  However I like fun things like makeup, fashion, and shopping.  Yesterday I went to the Dollar store and hamburger stand.  It was a major step for me.  I hadn,t planned to go, have to do this and that.  I just decided to get together in about 20 minutes and went out.  I stopped what I call my ocd and it worked.

Now I can stay in and do some things.  At the present time I am watching Hoarder.  I am taking things out of drawers and throwing them away.  At the end of summer -when the weather is cool I will be donating clothes.  That show has that effect on me. Well have a great day.  I think I,ll play some music.  Kelly Clarkson and Aretha Frànklin.

The Same Old Dress

shalilah2002

She wears the same old dress. She doesn’t have time to fix herself up. She gives all to her husband and her three children. She’s busy cleaning and cooking and taking care of the kids.

They occasionally go out but she never buys anything new to wear or go to the beauty shop or bother with makeup. Her husband has his night out with the boys and she stays home with the kids.

She notices that some of the women take care of their families but they have girls night out and wonder how some of them have the latest hairstyles, makeup and wear cute clothes. She puts those thoughts out because her kids and husband comes first and thinks she would be being frivolous spending money on herself.

However she notices that sometimes her husband has a wandering eye and looks at the other women in the neighborhood and…

HOPE

Some people are in a rut. They can hardly make it. I was once I was taking care of my daughter and myself alone. I could just pay the rent and buy food for,us.
I became so depressed I was ill. Sometimes Iwas able to take her to playland and to the hamburger stand once a month I didn,t give up hope though. I knew things could get better. It did. My income went up. I Wwas even able to,go to
School. These were happy times.

Now I am married since 1988 happily and my daughter is a school teacher I,also have a beautiful granddaugter.

The point I want to make is,never give up. You can make things or your lifes yle or anything you want to. Wishing you peace and happiness.

Knowledge Is Wealth

I hear about wealthy people have fallen from grace  Some try to keep being a person to the public that they are not. They are hypocrites  I never wanted to do this  I knew the danger of this.

I live by Why think of those who have more than you when so many have less.  I count my blessings, a warm comfortable home, clothes and food. I like to shop and can buy a few things from the drugstore weekly and the mall.  I do have gratitude.  There was one time in my life when I couldn,t do this and wore hand me downs.

I guess because of my faith I knew I would get better.  My relationships didn,t last long, two very short marriages. This was devastating. Iwas raised that,marriage was  forever.  However along came a man that made me feel secure and I have been with him for about 30 years.  We wore married in 1988

Yes I am blessed and grateful.
