Happy labor day.

Just wwant to wish all my friends a safe and happy Labor Day Weekend.
I've got no plans and we are open at the Dialysis Center on Monday so I plan on doing nothing this weekend.
Saw this picture and thought it should be some women cracking the whip in her husband.You gals all get your HONEY DEW lists ready for your men this weekend.
That drippy faucet,that one wall that needs to be touched up with paint.Oh and do not forget about the bushes that need trimming and the gutters should be cleaned too.Oh and the garage should be swept out..... yeah you know your lists never end and us poor fellers just work our fingures to the bone to keep you happy.Beacuse a happy wife is a good wife. Great wife and I am sure all of you are that. Great wifes.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
Mr. Brian

Middle Name MeMe

I was tagged by birthday girl K1, so I will play along.

1.Post these rules before you give the facts.
2.Players,you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your lifefor each letter of your middle name.If you do not have a middle name use the middle name you would like to have had.
3.When you are tagged you will need to write your own blog post containing your middle name game facts.
4.At the end of your blog-post you need to choose one person for each letter of your name.Be sure to let them know thay have been tagged.
Here it goes.....
J. Jolly, I try to almost always be jolly and upbeat.I enjoy laughing and love nothing better then a good harmless joke.I love to make people laugh and try to always have a smile on my face.After all who wants to see a scowled faced person put needled in their arm.

A.Attentive.I am very attentive to others,I have a very soft heart and if you hurt i hurt right along with you.I would try to help you in almost any way I can.I will be there to help when needed.

Y.Yes man.I would much tather say yes to you then to say no and fear you may be upset with me. I am a big people pleaser. I guess insecurity has made me like this. I have a great fear of rejection if I am not willing to help you when you ask for help.
I am not going to tag anyone,mostly because I cannot think of any names to go with my letters.But also you may not like me if I do.....Yep that is how I often think.
So if you want to play along go for it,if not I guess that is ok too.
hope you have learned just a little more about me now.
Have a great reaminder of the week.

A prayer is needed.

Please take a few moments to pray for a lady I know.Her name is Teresa
On Friday evening she tried ending her life.She is now in a coma at an Omaha hospital.
She is a women in her mid 40's with a husband and 2 children.Her kids are about a 1st grader and a sixth grader.
She has had a very long history of depression and has struggled for a long time.She recently learned her husband was having an affair.( I was told he had ended it and they were trying to salvage their marriage.)
Please pray for Gods healing hands upon her and that there may be no damage to her body.
Also pray for these two small children as they have to deal with yet another bad deal dealt to them.It seems so unfair that the children are often the ones who have to suffer the most when we as adults mess up.
As hard as it is for me to do I also feel I need to pray for the husband as I am sure he is dealing with much guilt and just rotten feelings right now.The nasty side of me wants to say look what you've done now.Was it all worth it? However the kind christian side of me says, how you must be hurting and placing blame on yourself,what a burden you must be walking with.I like my kinder christian side better.
Let's pray for Gods hands to not only touch this women but also this family and this marriage.
Thank You.

Thank my Lucky Stars

Having been given the schmoozer award I feel the need to continue with my reputation of being a schmoozer.(I must admit I feel I am very deserving of this award).I was soooo very very good at schmoozing the old ladies in the nursing home and continue doing this at the Dialysis Center.I've got one lady always saying we need to get married and/or she will come live with me and cook and clean.I have to remind her she is married.Plus I do not think I would ever become that destined for a housekeeper to have her move in.LOLOLOLOL
Any who.. back to my main topic.
I feel so honored to have been accepted into all of your lives with such open arms (or in this case blogs).
I feel so lucky to be able to comment on your blogs and also have all of you comment on mine as well.
It's just like having my own circle of girlfriends,but not having to spend any money on any of you.LOLOL
I know chances of any of us ever meeting face to face are very slim,(except for maybe Miss Steffie).However I feel like I know all of you personally already.Each and every one of you has touched my heart in a very special have encouraged me,lifted my spirits,made me laugh and just plain blessed my life.
You have been seeing mostly the real me. I try to treat others the way I want to be treated.If I cannot say anything nice I keep quiet.
My great enjoyment in life is to make others laugh and to enjoy life,like it is my last day on earth.I want to be remember as a fun loving crazy guy who enjoyed life.I want to be remembered as the guy who always made your day.(NO I am not about to kick the bucket or anything).as far as I know.
I just think of all you gals as some very special women who has allowed this disturbed,sometimes nuts, single man who enjoys meeting others to be apart of your life.
If I knew how to add music to my blog I would be playing either....:That's what friends are for", or "TO ALL THE GIRLS I'VE LOVED BEFORE."
And the best part of this blog I mean every word I said.I may have schmoozed but I am speaking from the heart.
Oh yeah, I am also very very tender hearted.And I am not gay!!!!!Sorry i just had to add that last part. Shame ,shame ,shame Mr.Brian.
Love ya all in a special way,Now put your arms around yourself and give yourself a BIG HUG from me!!!!

And the award goes to......

As honored as I am to receive this award i know I must also share it with others.Therefore I feel I need to pass it on to Becky @And Chloe makes six.
After all if it were not for her I would not be a blogger.
Becky is not only a great mom and librarian,she is also a great friend.She and Joe have been great friends supporters and all around fun people.I am very thankful to know them and be able to call then friend.Please stop over at Becky's blog and tell congratulate her.
And no she did not pay me to say all those noice things, they are all my own true words.

As Tony would say

Yet an other great day!!!!Shame on me for dreading today a Monday.I got up with a great attitude and had even a greater day at work.
But the day was made extra special because of a very special honor I was give by Red Mary Jane@The seventh Diamond.The Nice matters award. It totaly suprised me and made me feel very special.It's encouraged me to strive to be sure I always treat others the way I want to be treated,(not always an easy thing to do).Guess my mom and dads training did pay off.LOLOL
Thanks Red Mary Jane you made my day today.

Have a great week

It was a nice and relaxing weekend for me.
Now it is time to face the work day again.It is my day to open so I need to be at work by 4:00 a.m..I've always claimed to be a morning person but this does push it just a little.
Oh well guess working only 3 days a week I best not complain about it.Some of the days get a little long. It pays as long as I work so more $$$$$.
Hope you all have a great week and enjoy your work time or time with the kids.
Schools start here this week.There are many happy mom's and many ad kids i am sure. I know I would be crying already knowing school started this week.I hated school.
I can only hope non of your kids put you through what i put my mom thrrough.
Off to bed so I can get up early.

Wednesday's thoughts

I have been thinking a lot these past months about many things.I have also started to open up to and talk to one of the gals I work with.She is an amazing strong christian women who struggles daily with trying to be more Godly just like I think most of us do.
we have shared about our growing up and our low self esteem we both have.We are both so quick to praise each other for things but quicker to say how we our self are not so good.
Why is it is is so easy to praise others but so hard to accept praise?It is so easy to see the good in others but so hard to see the good in ourselves?Is it the way we were raised that keeps us that way? Thinking if we say yes I am good I may appear to others as having an ego problem?
She gave me a sheet of paper with some poweful phrases on it.I taped to my bathroom mirror to be able to read daily, I will share just a few of them with you...
Who am I in Christ....
I am God's child.
I am God's friend
I have been adopted as God's child.
I have been redeemed and forgiven of my sins.

I am assured that all things work together for good.
I cannot be separated from the love of God.
I can find grace and mercy in time of need.

I am God' coworker.
I am God's workmanship.

And as she said as she handed this to me,maybe you will not believe it if I tell you but,.........this is a promise from God.
I think I have found a great friend whom I can have some great talks with about faith.Thanks be to God!!

In closing I have one more thing. My manager and I were talking about learning the job and all it takes.She said an instructor who was teaching her in nurses training reminded her......Remember how long it took you to learn to tie your shoes good.It is the same way with our jobs,we may be able to do it but it takes time before we have it down good.

How hard could it be???

I let my Dutch in me show this weekend.
My dear little Josie needed her hair cut.(Reminder Josie is a dog).I do not want anyone calling DHS thinking I did this to a child.
I has bought a set of dog clippers thinking I would save $$$$$$ and clip Josie myself.How hard can it be to give a dog a trim???Any Tom,Dick or Harry can cut hair i thought.Maybe Tom Dick and Harry can but Mr. Brian can not.Poor little Josie, she looks ?????Well lets just say I hope it looks good in a few weeks.
The top of her little head looks like one of those hair cuts all of us have given our self at one time, our now your kids are giving themselves.LOLOLOL I keep telling her it will grow.In the mean time she refuses to be seen in public and asks to only go out after dark...Well maybe not that bad but I will think twice about doing that again.
I just hope it grows fast.
Lesson learned...... giving a haircut to Josie + saving money = a not so cute dog.

Thoughts going out to my blogger friends.

I've been thinking of what to blog about and was wanting to do some funny thing but I felt a need to ask that we all be praying for several of the blogger we may know.
I ask you remember Redmaryjane at The seventh diamond.Her mother in law Fran Girvin passed away on August 9th.Redmaryjane is ALWAYS putting others before herself and lifting up others with kind words or prayer.Please stop by her post and leave a comment to let her know we are thinking of her.
Redmaryjane, what a lovely post you posted in her honor. Please know others are thinking of you and your husband during these difficult times.May all of the family feel the love of our heavenly father surround you and give you strength.Gods blessings.

Also be praying for Kris @A mad race for Macey.She has a dear friend who at 24 is losing his fight with cancer.May Kris be comforted to know others are lifting her and her friend up in prayer.

Please be praying for Emmie Steffies daughter Never to many or pop over to Emmies blog sister 2 two. Emmie has a knee injurie and will be seeing a specialist in the next few weeks.

Just say a prayer in general for any one who may need a special touch.

Heavenly father, I just lift up any of our blogger friends who may need your loving hands upon them. Lift them up and surround them with your loving arms,give them encouragement where they need encouraging.Give them strength where strength is needed. What ever burden they may have may they they give it all to you.
In Jesus name....Amen
Have a wonderful weekend.Go hug your kids,tell the spouse you love them and take time to enjoy all God has given you.
God Bless!!!!!
Sorry I do not know how to do the fancy stuff where I type in their name and you go to the post.
I best be seeing my blogging queen Becky and have her help me.
I need her to do some other things to help me too.
Next week fun stuff.

A talk with God

I have been having many talks with God this past week.It is amazing how much praying one can do at 3:30 in the morning driving down the highway.(No I do not close my eyes).
After being harder on myself then my boss herself was I was questioning my career move.I was starting to doubt myself and if I was right for the job.
This morning I decided I needed to change that prayer to... give me the confidence I need,I know I can do it.Change my heart to the way it was several weeks ago.I asked that God just be at my side all day and that I felt him standing beside me and guiding me.
And he was all day!!!!!! I felt so relaxed and like I knew what I was doing just like I did several weeks ago.
I talked to my boss and told her how i had been feeling and she just filled me with encouraging words.
After today I wanted to go back.I did not have that sick feeling in the pit of my stomach.
Yes God answered prayers. He was with me and I felt his ever presence.
I did not let satin win any more.I think of what a fun time satin must have been having with me last week.Filling me with doubt, and anger and what else.
It seems we are so often given a chance to do something that would be very pleasing to God if only we fully trusted him.But there is always that other voice that says No you can not do it.It is not for you!!!!!
It is always easy for us to tell others to have faith but when It comes to us we often fall on our faces.
Thanks for all the kind and encouraging word.Mr.Brian is now back to his mischievous naughty self.BEWARE!!!!!
Have a wonderful week.
