Get Out the Glitz and Glamour~It's Oscar Night

The stars come out walk the red carpet at The Oscars in Hollywood, CA. I am so excited! Why? I did not see any of the movies (yet) but I love glitz and glamour. I love romance. So for me to see all the gowns, hairdo's, jewels, shoes, okay tuxedo garb too, I go ga ga!

I brought out a few of my bejeweled brooches for show and tell since it is a glamour night. Some are vintage, some are not, but all are beautiful.

Back in the 50's and 60's, I remember my parents getting all decked out for a night on the town. Cocktail dresses were a sign of the times. Chiffon; taffeta; laces. Netting and sexy undergarments. Those were the days. It was exactly those styles that prompted my Mom to have me host my own birthday dress up parties. We all wore her clothes, high heels and jewelry. We were the cat's meow. I can still feel the feeling of those parties.

So, sit back and enjoy the best seat at The Oscars. I'll be right there with you. Next to what's his name, the handsome one....

I Am Ready ~ The Power of Positive Thinking

I Am Ready

I am ready to join the work force once more;
I am ready to work for a wonderful company;
I am ready to be appreciated for my work;
I am ready to be a part of the whole;
I am ready to see my name on a paycheck;
I am ready to pay my bills;
I am ready to laugh;
I am ready to dress up;
I am ready to put my face on;
I am ready to smile more;
I am ready to make new friends;
I am ready to use my brain power;
I am ready.
Edited to add: This was one of my jottings. Just in case someone did not know that I have been out of work for a long, long time and now "I Am Ready"...

Unconditional Love

Since it is Valentines Weekend, I have been having thoughts about 'unconditional love'. To me it is the greatest love. It is love without strings attached. I just spoke about this to my brother and sister the other day. One of my dearest aunts taught me unconditional love. It is what she lived every day of her life and showered upon all of us. We were all so special to her that we thought it was directed to us individually. Not until later in life did I see that she had this love for all her nieces and nephews, friends and family. No one got by her without this love. Her "eyes lit up" every time she saw us. She has since passed on and I keep her picture of the two of us near me to look at each day. That picture shows the unconditional love she had for me and I for her. No money on earth could ever buy that feeling. I strive to show unconditional love to my family. I want them always to see my eyes light up when they walk into a room.

The Power of Pink

I just received an email to call for an interview and it is tomorrow at 11:30! She asked if I was presently working and I said no. She replied "Oh good!!!!". She apologized and I said she is the very first person who has ever been excited that I am not working. So we are starting off on a humorous note. I am trying to breathe as I am extremely excited.
This was a follow up with this company. I tried almost two years ago with them to no avail. I sent out my resume and cover letter on my primo lightly pink paper and viola, I get an email! It must have been the touch of pink! This is the power of the written word sent through the mail. Someone had to hold my pink envelope and swear they saw a light pinkness to it. Someone had to open it up by letter opener and read the contents. Someone had to walk it over to the President of the Company as it was directed for him to see. He told someone to contact me for an interview. My letter and resume is now on someone's desk awaiting our interview. A light shade of pink...
I feel like I already have the job. I am starting Monday.
And if I do not get this job, it is great practice for my next interview...
Never give up hope. Never stop trying. Turn the I can't into I can try.
