Happy All Hallows’ Eve!

 I hope everyone has a very safe and Happy All Hallows’ Eve!!

As for me, my back is killing me so I am going to sit in the dark in my room and watch scary movies. One of my favorite things to do. 👻

I’m a little bummed that I’m not able to put on make up or do anything this Halloween, but there will be others.  Thankfully Snapchat has given me a few ways to do some make up. LMAO

Did I mention I love Halloween!

Be safe tonight and be mindful of others around you.  And if teenagers show up at your door, give them candy! It’s much better that they’re doing something safe and fun then being out doing something not so safe and possibly getting into trouble. Childhood leaves us much too soon so let them be children for as long as possible. 🖤

And, if you have a black kitty keep them inside tonight. Humans can be very evil and black cats are targeted on Halloween. I think we all know that humans are the only monsters in this world.

Last but not least, an update on my MRI… They are working to get it done via outpatient so that I can be sedated to help with my pain during the MRI. I decided there’s no reason for me to be in that much pain to get a test so they need to work and help me. We have to be our own advocate and we need to speak up if something is not right for us.  So that’s what I did!

And remember, have courage and be kind.

Have a fun and safe Evening! Keep your furbabies safe and away from opening doors.

Last night was the pumpkin carving party at Don’s house. Here are the wonderful pumpkins that were carved. It was a fun time for all.

I started out dressing like a Vampire, but the wig cap/wig gave me a headache. My fitted Vampire teeth were a pain in the mouth! lol

So, ended up as a Witch. The lace on my hat is over 90 years old. It was my Nana’s. There is also a black rose with it. This is my favorite Witch hat. Yes, I have more than one. 😛

WITCHYME

Hat made in 2008. Still my fav!!

My fabulous make-up was done by Steph. She made me look damn good for a 51 year old. lol

Even with the pain, I had so much fun! I have let fear, being self-conscious, and embarrassment from my illness stop me from doing so many things. I know there will be times when my condition will keep from doing certain things. It makes me sad to not be able to be ‘normal’. One thing is for sure; I am blessed with a support team that always has my back. They never give up on me, even when I give up on myself. I am one of the lucky ones!

A Happy Halloween to all!

Love and Light!

Pumpkin contest anyone?

The past few years I haven’t done the Halloween thing. Bums me out as Halloween is a favorite day for me. I used to always dress up and hand out candy. Scaring kids was and added plus for me. 😛

Mwahahaha

Tomorrow is going to be so exciting for me. My former nurse and now my BFF Don is having a pumpkin carving contest party at his home. I’M GOING TO DRESS UP!! It’s been so long since getting out my Halloween gear; dress, wigs, jewelry, makeup, etc. Steph and her crew are going, as well as my family. I can’t wait to meet Don’s friends and make some new friends in the process. It’s the little things in life that make so happy. I won’t be doing any carving myself, as knives and me don’t go together very well.

So, YAY for me!! I’m finally getting out and doing things again. Taking baby steps, or rolls. lol

Peace out!

Love and Light

Wish I cold do this! Spooky

I love you Barry Manilow!!

I’ve loved Barry since I was a teenager. Such emotion in his music and complete love. I just added a music player to my blog. It’s on the bottom left side. The first song, of course had to be, I Made it Through the Rain. The main reason for my blog’s name. I was starting out blogging and listening to Barry in my iTunes. Then BAM, it hit me! Making it Through the Rain. I haven’t ‘made’ it yet, but I am ‘making’ it through the rain.

Hit play and make your heart happy!

Many moons ago I was invited to see his pre-concert, concert at Sony Studios, for his upcoming tour. It was invite only with maybe 100 people. They had it known, unbeknownst to me, that I would get up and sing, Can’t Smile Without You, with Barry. I am sad to say I did not do it. My one and only true regret in my life. 😦

 Oh how I wish I had said yes. I was wearing leg braces and using crutch canes. I was petrified about falling and having no confidence in myself, I felt I had to politely decline. **bashes head against wall…

If only life had a re-do button. Sadly, it does not. NEVER, say no to something you are able to do, because the chance may never come again.

But… The evening was so amazing. I still had the time of my life. Just meeting him for the quick minute is a moment I will never forget!!

Thank you Desi for taking me and thank you Barry Manilow for your amazing talent. A true fan for life!!

And look…

To Tracy with love
