Blessings in Fluff

never thought I would be a homemaker, but with various medical issues I am blessed with, it hasn't really been an optional thing. I do get out to volunteer several times a week at a school helping do data entry for their library and then the rest of my weekdays are taken by appointments.

I live in Washington State, USA with a significant other, my dog, and a large collection of stuffed animals.

My Program:
I'm slowly implementing the ideas that came to me as inspiration for my SuuuuperGoals blog post.

Area 1: Devotions
Area 2: Appearance
Area 3: Nutrition and Fitness
Area 4: Housekeeping
Area 5: Reading and Vocabulary building

They were in a different order in the post, but they've seemed to reprioritize themselves recently and I'm not complaining.

Personal Information:
I live in Auburn, WA. Feel free to friend, SparkMail, comment or send me notes! I turn 38 on April 22nd and I've been living with my man of choice for about 10 years this April/May!

I'm still trying to get him on SparkPeople, but he says it reminds him too much of facebook. Still I haven't given up hope.

Theresa,
Forgive those who insult you, attack you,
belittle you, or take you for granted.

But more than this...
forgive yourself for allowing them to hurt you.

Have a truly thankful Thursday!

Theresa,
~~A Quote to LIVE By~~
People are often unreasonable and self centered
FORGIVE them anyway
If you are kind, people may accuse you of having an ulterior motives
Be KIND anyway
If you are honest, people may cheat you
Be HONEST anyway
If you find happiness, people may be jealous
Be HAPPY anyway
The good you do today may be forgotten anyway
Be GOOD anyway
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough
Give your BEST anyway
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God
It was never between you and them anyway.
Mother Theresa

This weekend, FORGIVE someone, be KIND-open a door for someone, be HONEST - if given too much money back, return the correct amount, be HAPPY - smile and laugh with a friend, or loved one, be GOOD - staying positive in a negative situation, do your BEST - be helpful to some who needs help.
Have a forgiving, kind, honest, happy, good, and the best Weekend ever!!!

Barb
