I'm Tired

I'm tired of blogger having a mind of it's own.
People that have to struggle so hard just to share their passion.

I'm tired of people getting mad.
Over little stuff.

Like if someone gets a game request on Facebook.
I love to play word games.
I never send out requests to anyone I know doesn't like to play games.
Sometimes, those computer games send them out without my knowledge.
I'm sorry if one has come to you in my name.

I'm tired of road rage.
I mean really,
have you never gone too slow,
or forgotten to use your turn signal?
Unless there is an accident,
is it really that big of a deal?
Will 2 more minutes on the road
REALLY make a huge difference in your day?

I'm tired of people spending time with "me"
while being on their cell phone,
IPAD or a computer.
I mean, go ahead and spend all day on your toys, if you'd like.
But please, don't do it while you're with me.

But most of all,
I'm tired of killings.
Senseless, needless killings,
of innocent people.
Adults and worse yet...children.
I can't stand it.
Not for
One. More. Minute.
Really people.
Let's get a grip
on what matters in this world.
Let's get back to kindness.
Love and

I'm going to.
I'm not going to whine and complain anymore.
I'm going to start doing.
I've done my 26 Random Acts of Kindness in memory
of the angels taken way too soon from Sandy Hook Elementary.

Now I'm going to make my whole year about
I'm going to start with cards for co-workers.
Just a note letting them know they are special and
cared about.
It's not much.
But it just MIGHT make a bad day into a good day.

To my readers:
If I could send you each a card, I would.
But I can't.
So let this serve the purpose.

Each and EVERY one of YOU
You are thought about!
You are CARED about!
I may not know you personally,

It is all exhausting, and I feel the same as you. Everyone needs to just slow down and try to be a little kinder.

AWw Jill. What a great post. I am so tired of all the stuff you mentioned as well. Great great post. The whole world should read more of these posts instead of reading all the junk out there. youtube should delete videos that show stupid things like people and the guns they have. I mean come on guys keep that to yourselves. Bottom line is, I love you as well, and am so glad I found your blog and you are still blogging. Thank you for the kind words and all the inspiration you give us followers. Thank you for loving us and we love you too. ANA

I also get annoyed w/ people more interested in electronic devices than in spending time together. I think the cards are a great idea!

Hi Jill, There is so much more good in the world than bad. We just need to spread that around. Thanks for taking the lead! Love, Penny

Madi and Mom said...

We could not have said it for the cell phone Mom was about ready to jump out of her car today and give a mom of a toddler a tongue lashing. Mom was on the way to pick up G-pa (he was released today) at the hospital. There was a mom and a ~3 year old crossing the street mom was on the cell phone, child was traipsing along behind her, stopped smack in the middle of the street while mom continued to cross the street oblivious to the child! DANG WOMAN SHOULD HAVE BEEN HOLDING THE CHILD'S HAND AND NOT THE $$*! CELL PHONE!

I wish I had time to play a game or two with you, my dear. I'm just plain physically tired right now. Not enough sleep.

The cards sound like such a thoughtful idea. I'm sure your co-workers will love them.
