“Nothing is permanently perfect. But there are perfect moments and the will to choose what will bring about more perfect moments.” ~ Mary Balogh, Simply Perfect
It has been a empowering Thursday because in my heart and soul I know I have done the right thing for those that I dearly love. I am eternally grateful to wonderful parents that taught me to believe in myself, my abilities, humanity, humility and kindness, nothing else really matters.
This post was written a while back in contribution to a friends blog; however I want to list it in my blog as well, so here we go. On a Saturday, no less, I took a drive up 75 to the Red River. Yes, this drive, my Ipod and a cup of coffee are favorites. Today, I got a different view point, shhhhh, it was from a private RVP park on the Oklahoma side. I have tried many times to get in without success. Luckily, a lovely couple from the great State of Louisiana invited me in as a guest. What a thrill!! The picture I was able to capture reminded me of the music chosen for this post. I love this place... can you tell!
Anyway, it’s always about some good solid rock and roll. I have chosen a group that was hot during the early 70’s called Creedence Clearwater Revival and the featured song is titled "Proud Mary - Rollin' on a River". Yep that’s me… proud Mary! There I said it and used my middle name Mary… LMAO.
I wonder why my parent could not have thought of a better name and trust me I understand the logic as told to me. According to legend, they were desperately trying to stay away from my grandmother’s name, Deonichia. I don’t know which one is worse. Whoosh!!! It is all good in the long run…right?… Diana Mary Isabel Sharpton de Pigott…. the Mexican naming convention…smile! One good thing in America is that all the extra names (confirmation & mother’s maiden) are not required.
