Wishful Wednesday - YUMMommy

Wishful Wednesday

This week is flying by fast. Hard to believe that we are almost halfway to the weekend.  Well, I hope that everyone had an enjoyable Mother's Day. I know that I did. It was lovely having all my family together and watching my mom try to do the Stanky Leg. LOL.

Anyways, it's Wishful Wednesday again.  My addition that I would like to add to my wish list this week is healing.  Yes, somehow I wish that I could heal the problems of the world and those around us. Seriously, this week I have taken to boycotting watching the news.  It just seems like there is always some young child who has lost their life either at the hands of a deranged adult or enraged peer.  Then there was that plain crash  that killed 96 people overseas.

And we're still trying to deal with how to clean up that huge oil spill. I don't know about your area, but gas prices here have already gone up. And although the economy is getting better it seems like education is taking the worst hit.  Many of our beloved teachers and administrators are being forced into retirement because the school can no longer afford to pay them a higher salary.  I do agree that some teachers should be retired but I can't help but wonder what will become of kids next school year?

To have so many inexperienced first year teachers coming in to critical positions is a gamble. I mean we have department head and administrative positions going to students with no teaching experience and fresh out of college. I think that they should at least keep the current department heads and principals  to allow them to train the new ones for a year.  I'm a twenty something year old mom with a college education but even I know there are some positions I'm not wise or experienced enough to take without training or guidance.

Lastly, I would like to heal this country of complaining. There seems to be a lot of people out there pointing the finger at our President about the state of things.  I just want to point out that President Obama is not a magician. He does not have a magic wand that he waves.  If you want to point the finger start with yourself, then your district leaders, then your state representatives and so forth.

If some of you out there feel like you could do a better job at running a country run for president then!!!  We need to start supporting our leader and being patient. This country was already jacked up when he came into office. It took years backwards politics to get this way and it'll take years of great politics to straighten it out. Let's unite like our name (United States of America) claims we should be and get on one page. I truly believe this world could be great again if we just all did our part.

  1. Hehe, your momma doing the Stanky Leg? Hope you recorded that special moment! I hear you on boycotting the news, its horrifying and depressing and it makes me want to stay in my house all the time. Last time I really watched the news a young child no more than 5 wandered out of his house and drowned in the family’s swimming pool. How tragic! I live in Mass and on the Cape/Vineyard area I recently learned that it’s a law for families to have a window in their kitchen as to oversee their pool. But then im like what if the pool isn’t viewable from the kitchen?! Anyhoo, the news is depressing point blank.

    Ahmen to healing this country from complaining. People have become experts at complaining and its annoying and aggravating and not fun to be around, ugh.

    Blinged out headband?! I’m bummed I missed that!!

  2. Oh, please believe we recorded that moment. LOL. It will be making a cameo at her next birthday. And I'm totally with you about the whole window in the kitchen. Not everybody's pool is located directly in front of the kitchen window. I think that a law mandating safety gates be put up would make more sense.

    It only takes little kids a minute to get into stuff. Inbox me your mailing address and I will send you one. Love, love, love your blog by the way.

  3. Yee-haw, really?! I'm doing a dance in my computer chair...whew that was close, I almost fell off the chair! hehe.

  4. Yes, really. We seem to think along the same wave length and have a lot in common. Plus, we keep it real in what we write. I guess I see some of myself in your posts. Feels good to know I'm not alone in my young single mom journey.
