The internet is a great tool.  Or it can be.  It's introduced me to some of the best friends I've never met.  Soul sisters, fo sho!  We are now a very tight group of women that met on a popular blog...grew so deeply that we developed our OWN (private) blog. 

Chicks share.  We laugh, pray, decorate and shop together.  It's all good.  I feel like I'm running next door every time I click on the blog.  Cannot wait to see who is "home" and what the chit chat is all about.  These 25 women know more about me than anyone I hang around with on a daily basis. 

One such friend has a wonderful blog of her own and I visited her ranch this morning.  It was after my morning coffee and quiet time.  My sons are on my heart - today, the oldest is pulling at the heartstrings over the youngest.  I feel like I know the Rx for his soul...yet he's not there - not ready.  He does not want/cannot hear what his Mom has to say.  BUT...boy does he need to visit Chatelaine Ranch and read what my pal has written today

Her post resonates with me - not so much FOR me - but I know a few people who could put their anger to good use.  Like Kelly, I am allergic to martyrs.  A-C-T-I-O-N.  It's a must in my vocabulary.

(Due to my '70s Music Party last weekend...) this song is on my mind:

I want to go where the people dance

I want some action
I want to live
Action, I got so much to give
I want to give it
I want to get some too

The meaning behind these tunes means something else perhaps...but in Vava Terms:

  •   "...go where the people dance" = FUN.  I surround myself with positive, fun people. 
  • "I want some action."  =  I won't lie down.
  • "I want to live."  =  Bucket list, to do list, dream, call it what you will.  LIVE people!
  • "I want to give it."  =  Be authentic, be an encourager.  Be.
  • "I want to get some too."  =  (mind out of gutter, please).  I want to be open to LIFE!
Strange how my friend and I are posting on similar topics.  Whether anger or action get you going....choose one.  Don't lie down and take it...think about dancing.

VA...I lost the link to your blog...but alas I found it!!! I feel like I am running next door too!! LOVE your header, the pics are wonderful. There is a site called Scrapblogs and you can create a header with different Fonts and you can upload your picture too, and then it sizes the header perfectly for blogger...I did it on Our Little China might have fun playing around with it!! Happy Day Sweet Friend (Neighbor) :)

Va, I think you misunderstood me. I was trying to convey that it's okay to be angry because it leads
to action....not "whether being angry OR taking action" as you wrote. Being angry just to be angry is not what I meant. My anger leads to taking action to fix it. Thanks for letting me be clear. xoxo
