My Oldest Is 30 today

Saturday, April 16, 2011

Can't believe my son is 30 today! Going to help celebrate his birthday this afternoon. He and his wife just went through fertility process with no success..so kinda down time for them. They so long for a child. I know God in His timing will fill their arms with their heart's desire When it's impossible - that's when God does His work. Then all glory is given to Him - because there is no one else to thank....

    Makes you feel old someone, doesn't it. My oldest will be 40 this year. Rather scary.

Hope your son and family achieve their desire. A child is such a wonderful gift.

Covered another office yesterday and had some work errands to run. Today have some more errands to run...Yes....out of the office and out of my chair. Gorgeous weather yesterday and hopefully some sunshine today.

Debbie downer co-worker had a melt down yesterday as father who's never been much in her life has colon cancer. I know that she is the way she is because of her upbringing. Maybe the more I understand her the more I can overlook/understand the way she is...there is still no excuse for some of her behavior but maybe it will help some.

Read a motivational article that stated you won't become what you want until you start thinking that way. I need to start thinking like a thin person....good thought.

    And you are becoming that person. Just look at you.

Each blog, in my opinion, sounds more upbeat whether dealing with your MIL or co-worker. All those things can be downers, but I think you are over-coming them by thinking more positive about yourself and making sure you think about 'you' first.

Good job! emoticon

Had a good day by myself. It was steady and not too busy. Had to go to view of a co-worker from another office's 6 week old grandson. Sad situation.

Took a ride with hubby last night and he thought it was warm enough for the top to be down and I was cold. He must be hot blooded right now. Picked up things for son's 30 BD party Saturday and got home at 8:30 to eat. Gotta cut that out. At least we didn't eat out.

A friend e-mailed me about getting some of her garden out yesterday and she was hoping I got to get outside and work in my yard...so do I. It has been run, run, run this week. Tonight is Praise Team Practise. This weekend is booked up. Need to take a day off to get housework done :) Haven't had a night free to get Mom to Curves....Next week will be better.

Off to seize the day!

Went to bed thinking it was cold in the house and this AM seemed cold but figured it was because I'd just gotten back from Florida and wasn't used to our humidity. So I said brrr it's cold this AM...Hubby goes..oh well it might be...turned the heat off. I go downstairs and it's 64 degrees in our house. It was warm last week and he'd turned it off. He said "why didn't you say something?" Guess I'll have to get to exercising to warm up this AM.

Didn't get home last night until 8:30. This seems like a crazy life. Gonna be gone a lot this weekend too! Seems like little time to work on cleaning the house or doing yard work for spring etc.

Off to seize the day! Will be working alone today and having funeral viewing for co-worker family tonight.

Daughter doing better.

    I felt the same way in my house this am -- chilly -- this weather is so crazy. One day 89, the next 60. Yikes

Glad you daughter is doing better! Have a good day at work - alone!!

Tuesday thoughts

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

As children bring
their broken toys
with tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams
to God
because He was my friend!

But then instead
of leaving Him
in peace to work alone,
I hung around
and tried to help
with ways
that were my own.

At last I snatched them back
and cried,
"How can you be so slow?"
"My child," He said
"What could I do?
You never did let go."

    How very true. Not sure why it is so hard for us to let go. We need to simply Let Go and Let God!!!
