May 12 and the sun is shining

Saturday, May 12, 2012

It appears that we are going to be in for a fabulous day today with sunshine, birds singing, and just being alive!

I have my monthly massage this morning to look forward to in a about an hour and then the rest of the day is will be spent doing chores around the house and spending as much time out in the yard as possible.

Garry has today off work so we will be spending time together which will be nice. I'm looking forward to Mother's day tomorrow as we are all going on a picnic. Haven't done that for a very long time.

My positives:
Sunshine.
It's the weekend.
Massage this morning.
Family time this weekend.
Looking forward to getting some things into the garden.
Daily blessings.

Have a great day, put laughter and fun into your day.

Hugs,
Wanda

When you choose to be positive...

Friday, May 11, 2012

When you choose to have a positive attitude and choose to be open to all that God has in store for you each day, the blessings flow.

Yesterday we had a seminar to attend...a Support and Staff Seminar for all the County employees. (actually, all the female county employees to be precise). It was a way for our employer to show appreciation for all the hard work the women do. We were blessed with a great keynote speaker who spoke about nutrition and health. Followed by a really fun Drumming session, what a lot of fun that was, then a brief fashion show to wind things up. We were served a lovely lunch to boot! Yep is was a great "work" day *grin*. They had all kinds of door prizes and I was blessed with winning a gift card to Greenlands Garden Center...how appropriate is that for me! And Yes, I did actually get some real work done too.

My positives:

God has also been providing Garry with a busy last few days at his work. Because Garry works strictly on commissions...this is a very lovely bonus.
Blessings of a gift card to go and spend at Greenlands. Woo Hoo, more garden stuff.
I got my goal of steps in yesterday despite a large chunk of my day sitting.
Fun experience of drumming. I am interested in looking into attending some more drumming sessions, as is Shyra. She really enjoyed it also.
Being blessed with a new day of life.

Have a great and fantastic Friday...it's your choice!

Hugs,
Wanda

  


Life is good!

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Life is good. I have so much to be grateful for. Big things and little things, my life is truly blessed.
To wake up each morning and know that I have a day spread before me filled with all sorts of possibilities is really wonderful. How I choose to approach my day and all that occurs is entirely up to me. Wow.

Yesterday, I over did things a bit with having to walk home from work. Although I'm used to walking and the walking is good for me. My knee yesterday was not feeling like it enjoyed it much. I wasn't able to meet my goal of 10,000 steps for the day. I'm sad about that, but felt it was better to rest my knee and pamper it a bit last night. This morning, I'm still feeling it, but will take things easy once again. Shorter walks, just more frequent.

We have a workshop to attend today at work. Some of the staff attended yesterday's session and said it was really worth it, so I'm looking forward to attending today. This has been a week filled with meetings and workshops. Things should settle down somewhat next week.

My positives:
I'm blessed with a new day of life.
An interesting workshop to look forward to this morning.
Although my knee is a bit sore this morning still, it still enables me to get about with some adjustments.
Life, friends and family...the best things in the world.

have a great and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    Take care of that knee for sure. I will be tracking my steps for sure and putting them down on paper this weekend so that I can put them in our challenge. Have a great day and weekend!

Blessings

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

Here is another example of how God blesses our family in unexpected ways.

Our son is a professional fishing guide in the north. He has been doing this for the past 6 years and over that time has built a steady cliental for himself as well as for the lodge he works at. This month we were excited to see that he has his picture (with client and fish) in two magazines: Outdoor Canada and Alberta Outdoorsman. What a blessing for him. God is good.
He works very hard to ensure that his clients leave having had a great time and this is a real bonus for him.

Thunderstorms are the expected for today. We had a beautiful day once again yesterday. Lots of sunshine. More expected for this weekend, which makes me happy. We have made plans to head to one of the National Parks for a Mother's Day picnic. We haven't been on a picnic for a long time. Should be a lot of fun.

My positives:
So thrilled for our son that all his hard work is paying off.
A Mother's Day picnic to look forward to.
One workshop down, one to go at work.
God has been blessing Garry at his work also. He has been exceptionally busy. Yay!
We are blessed with three of the most wonderful children.
Friends and family.
A new day of life, even if I'm dragging a bit this morning from lack of sleep *grin*

Have a wonderful day, count your blessings and see how they add up!

Hugs,
Wanda

    Congratulations Wanda on your Son's success! How exciting for him and you too Mom! We love to brag don't we. hehehe

Your Mother's day sounds very nice. Can't remember the last time I went on a picnic much less having my kids along. Enjoy your special day.

Looks like I will be celebrating with Andy. Maybe a nice dinner out. Works for me. hehehe

    Quin sounds like a very good guide and how wonderful to get his picture in two magazines, hopefully it'll bring more business to him and the lodge.

Hope the weather is agreeable this weekend so you can have that picnic.

Me and my girls are going out to eat on Sat. and then back to DD's house for a movie.

Hugs,
Shirl
