Love Your Neighbor As Yourself

We live in a house and have been for the past 7 years. During these years we have had the house vacant next to us for 4 of the years. A new family moved in about a year ago and they are very different then we are. I can honestly say I am not fond of our new neighbors they are loud and do car work in their driveway and it blows smoke in our windows and throws loud parties during the summer months. I wasn't really happy that they have been taken over most of the street parking as well. I learned a valuable lesson recently about my new neighbors. I had this idea of them in my mind as people I never wanted to spend time let alone live next to. I know it's awful of me for thinking this but I have gotten use to the quiet around here and I don't like so much going on via our quiet street. Well, the thing that changed my entire view was about a week ago I was trying to rake leaves on the side of our home. I was worried that it was going in their driveway and I didn't want to cause any issues. I set out to rake the mounds of leaves and got really tired after awhile. I did about 30 min of work and my back started to hurt so I went inside to rest. Well, the neighbors saw me moving things around and I heard this loud noise. I noticed it was next door and I was thinking oh great they are doing something loud again.. I was so wrong one of the men that lives next door had a leaf blower and was blowing my side of the house trying to help me. I was surprised and shocked that someone wanted to help me and we hardly ever talk. I walked back outside thanking him for his help and he helped me move so many leaves. I was forever changed and ashamed of how I had been acting. I recalled the saying

Mark 12:31 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’There is no commandment greater than these.”

This really stood out to me that I had this judgment against my neighbors for being so loud and not being what I had expected. I have to say don't judge a book by its cover. We have life lessons that are present I am glad I learned something new. I am starting to see that life is this ever learning experience.

My Favorite Thanksgiving Movies!

So you think that Thanksgiving movies don't exist but they do!! We have several that we use in the rotation each year that we love. Below are my top 5 Thanksgiving  Movies they are not in any specific order check out the trailers below!!


I love the Big Chill now most will say that it doesn't have a part that has Thanksgiving in it but it really does. It's in the deleted parts of the movie. I however still watch this 80s movie each Thanksgiving. The music is fantastic! I love this movie and the dancing in the kitchen makes me giggle.


 I am a big John Hughes fan!! as one of my favorite directors, this is a Thanksgiving movie that I love watching and I love the family aspects.


I only started to watch this movie with my husband after we got married 10 years ago. This was a movie that he really enjoyed that yes is centered around several Thanksgivings. I only enjoy a few Woody Allen films and this is one it's centered around Hannah and well her sisters.


Planes, Trains, and Automobiles is such a classic Thanksgiving movie hands down my favorite. I laugh so hard and I love John Hughes yet again he's a master at family comedy. I love the ending and it makes me a little teary-eyed.


So this is the movie The Last Waltz has grown on me over the years this was filmed on Thanksgiving day 1976. It was The Band's Farewell Concert. It has such wonderful music in it it's also a documentary and directed by Martin Scorsese. (also a hubby suggestion)

Recovery Takes Time

 (Funny Video attached )

So I figured I would do an update as it's been some time since I talked about my current mental state. I started seeing someone I think 5 months ago. I do enjoy my therapist I am not feeling like we have a connection. I am however feeling better about things in general about my life the depression is still an issue but since I stopped taking some pills a few months ago my mood has changed. I am currently trying to work on some personal projects for dealing my past trauma. My therapist wants me to do EMDR I am not ready to go back and deal with past stuff at this time, so I am taking a break from my therapist for a few weeks and work on some side projects. This blog, a personal photography project and trying to heal. I have to say the hardest part of this entire thing is how alone I feel the support groups are not offered in my area. I feel like I am dealing with my past alone talking to myself alone. I have to say it's a very lonely feeling.

**updated with a funny video that I love it speaks to me right now **
