Keep the Peter out of the Payroll

Standard

I just got out of a meeting with the honorary Herb Brautzsch.  This is my only disclaimer: Herb and I use raw tell it like it is language and I apologize if it offends you.  ON THAT NOTE:  Oh my that man never ceases to amaze me of the topics to which we talk about…today it was about all the women he had never been with.  I should say nothing really surprises me anymore at the craziness of topics.  ………Really?  Really Herbert? Don’t call me Herbert!  My mom used to call me that when I was in trouble!  FINE……..  This was a moment I definitely called him Herbert.  We were laughing until we cried at this ridiculousness!  We go from talking about cheap screws (which I asked him if he was referring to a whore–i told you it was rough language) and he said “she might have been a cheap screw but she was sure a nice girl” as he just wells up again with tears.

He was talking to me about a hair dresser that he never slept with then she got married, another gal Francie Weathers (yes he even remembered her name) to whom back when he was about 17 or 18 he bumped lips and made her bleed and he said he couldn’t get into her pants after that!?  Then, he said for whatever reason or another he just never did.  Like never sleeping with any of the ladies that worked for him.  That’s where his policy of “Keep the Peter out of the Payroll” comes in…Didn’t know why or what?  Just didn’t do it.  I can relate oddly enough.

He told me that he was the best thing that has ever happened to me.  I couldn’t disagree but only laugh and ask why….He told me that he had prepared me for things of the future and one day I would thank him.  Little did he realize that his “Thank you card” was in the mail  🙂

He also told me there was something provocative (not to be confused with being provocative…girls that wear turtle necks are not to be considered provocative these days…) about me.  Like he could really discuss anything with me and I not be offended and just fire right back.  OK….don’t know what that means but, can’t argue.  Personally, I think he thrives on this sort of interaction.  Keeps him moving and his soul on fire.  Keeps his spirits up and keeps him coming back for more!

Got to love words of wisdom from a 95-year-old man.

Good Ole Herb

Love who loves you…

Standard

Today more than ever I feel loved completely and in whole being.  I have decided that I am straight up obnoxious when I am in a great mood.  Which this could be a good and a bad thing but, then again who cares?  ***OK what the heck Pandora!  You are playing “My heart will go on” Celine Dion on my NSYNC station…kind of not cool.***

Well today’s post is in regards to my amazingly awesome day yesterday.  The work day was long but the reward was greater later.  I got to talk to a friend that I don’t see very often.  I was able to go to my Special Olympics Bowling last night and it was amazing.  I have one or two young adults that I help especially and then I try to mesh between the other athletes.  Last night I have a sweetheart named Kevin B. ask if I was married.  I replied no and he then asked if I would marry him!  (How sweet!)  I told him maybe someday!  Then it was his turn to bowl.  This makes my 2nd marriage proposal in about 3 months.

awwwww!

I wish people were capable of that innocence love.  My athletes are some of the most loving, accepting, and wonderful people I know.  Whenever I feel unloved or if I have had a bad day, they totally make life better.  You see the thing is people are capable, but in order for them to experience that kind of love they have to be willing to give everything away.  You see these athletes are ones that might be seen as disabled but, aren’t we all a little impaired in certain ways?  Their intellectual disability causes them to see everything innocently as it should be.  I know that it is difficult sometimes and thankless as parents to have a child with this disability, but the parent’s that come to these events are so supportive.  They never complain, they never give up, and most of all they are there to be their child’s cheerleader!  How blessed am I am able to witness that???  Extremely!  They genuinely love, what most people couldn’t even fathom.

I have friends that that have been there for me and loved me and made me feel worth a million bucks again when my heart and spirit was crushed.  For those friends, I genuinely love back.  They are fabulously divine!  I noticed that I take those people for granted.  What makes a good friend is not how often they are there BUT, when they are there for you.  The timing is everything you see.  God places these wonderful friends in your life when you need them the most and it’s their choice to choose to help or not.  Feel blessed when they do choose to help.  That is a true friend.

Genuinely take care of those who love you.  If they do something great or were there for you, make sure that you thank them in an appropriate way.  Make sure that you recognize that.  They will know that the genuine love is mutual and that friendship is true.

Love love love...

By the way, the music selection definitely got better when I switched my station to Pandora: Def Leopard …..OH yes Gotta love the 80’s!!!
