A Spirit of Gratitude: March 22

I Am Thankful For:
Spring snow days
Goals reached
A new idea
A weekend with the Grand Kid
Grand Kid snuggles
Spoiling the Grand Kid
Watching cartoons all morning
Ginger ale when my tummy hurts
My crazy daughter
Waking up late
Skyping with the Man of the House when he's out of town
Design changes
The Man of the House coming home!
A sudden rain shower
Spring storms
Making lunch plans with my mom
Cute bunny hats

What are YOU thankful for this week?

With Love,

Saturday Coffee: Makes You Wonder

Grab a cup of coffee (or tea - or whatever your beverage of choice is right now)  and let's talk! 

Today, I just want to talk about a few things that made me go "hmmmm" during the past week.

Why does the cat insist that he must jump up on the bed whenever I am trying to make it?  For that matter, why does he always want to come into the bathroom when I go in there? It's sort of definitely weird.

Does anyone still give the courtesy "thank you wave" while in traffic?  I let people out/over/etc all the time.  And it seems as if it's the rare instance that anyone will give a little wave.  I know it shouldn't matter.  I should do it to be kind, not for the thank you.  But the truth it, it kinda bothers me. 

The weather continues to keep us guessing around here.  On Wednesday we had snow and cold.  Thursday, the sun was shining and we were enjoying 65 degrees! 

I went in Tuesday morning to have blood drawn for my yearly labs.  I was prepared to wait about a week for the results.  However, I was shocked to receive an email by 5pm the SAME DAY letting me know my results were available on the patient portal!  I've never received test results so quickly.  I was shocked.  Part of me even worried that maybe those results belong to someone else.  LOL  

With Love,

A Spirit of Gratitude: March 15

Today's post is rolling out a little late.  But, considering that I completely forgot last week - I would say late is an improvement.   😁

The Male Offspring fixing pizza for dinner without being asked
Making tiny baskets
My dad stopping by to visit
Disney World commercials
Muffins for breakfast
A day out with my guys
Strolling around Whole Foods with the Man of the House
Dinner at Wicked Weed
A trip to Barnes and Noble
Ice Cream
Long, spiritual discussions
Black coffee
Ordering takeout at the end of a busy day
Good test results
Getting home safe
Snowy March Days

You Are Loved

The following is a repost of something I wrote several years ago.  It still holds just as true as it was then and will ever be...

If there is one simple truth, one message I could give to you, one thing I want you to step away from this blog knowing - it is this...

God Loves You:

no matter what you weigh

no matter what you wear

whether your hair is:  long or short - curly or straight - brunette, blond, red, gray, or white

even if you have no hair

whatever your job is

even when you are grumpy

with makeup or without

whether you cooked dinner, or ordered takeout

whether your house is clean or messy

whether the laundry is clean or not

if you made it to the gym today or skipped it

with pimples - or wrinkles

if you have a house full of children - or no children

Despite of what you've done

Because of who you are


No matter what

Saturday Coffee: Unless I Forget

Grab a cup of coffee (or tea - or whatever your beverage of choice is right now)  and let's talk! 

You may have noticed that I didn't get a Spirit of Gratitude post published this week.  Why?  Oh... no reason. Other than it completely slipped my mind.  That's right. I forgot.  Embarrassing.

Mother Nature can't seem to make up her mind what season it should be.  It seems she got the memo that it was still winter.  And decided to go with that.  For now, at least.  We had snow flurries on Wednesday.   With more possibly headed our way as next week   I'm not complaining.  I don't mind the chill.  And I'm thankful we're not getting pounded with one winter storm after another like the northern part of the country!

I saw this on Instagram the other day.  It sums up the weather situation pretty well... and made me giggle.

I had my yearly physical this week.  Everything looks pretty good.  I need to lose weight.  And exercise more.  No surprises there.  I have to go back one morning next week to have blood drawn for my labs.

Mr Cardinal was sitting out on the porch rail this morning, loudly complaining that the feeder is empty.  Something else I forgot to do this week.  I need to get that filled up before the snow possibly starts flying later this weekend.  Although I do enjoy listening to my bird friend singing his "feed us now!" song.  

I'm ready for the weekend.  A little time with the Man of the House.  We've started taking some time on the weekend to do sort of a couples Bible study time.  And I'm going to make muffins for breakfast one morning. 

I hope each of you enjoy a lovely weekend!  

With Love,
