Yay, it's Friday!

Friday, September 14, 2012

I love Fridays! What more can I say.

It's been a busy week in many ways at work. I'm ready for some downtime.

My food for thought was something I read yesterday:

"Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so , let us all be thankful.
Gautama Buddha (circa 563 BC- 483, BC)

Don't let negative thoughts rob you of a positive day.

My Gratefuls:
1. Thank you that I have a comfortable and safe place to sleep at night so that I may rest undisturbed.
2. Thank you for the quietness of the morning when I rise, so that I might gather my thoughts and prepare myself for the day ahead.
3. Thank you for seeing Kismet scratching on her scratch post once again, now I know that she will work at keeping her claws trimmed down herself instead of having to go to the vets.
4. Thank you for Garry bringing Shyra and I Tim Horton's yesterday on his day off, what a nice treat.
5. Thank you that I have a healthy body that serves me.
6. Thank you for my job that I enjoy doing allowing me to earn money to pay for the things we need.
7. Thank you for blessing Garry with some time off so that he can recharge his batteries also.
8. Thank you for the blessing of sight so that I can read, grow and learn.
9. Thank you that Garry's company needs extra miles put on a vehicle and that Garry gets to do it freeing up our own vehicle for me to use this week.
10. Thank you that the swelling in my knee is going down and that my brace is keeping my knee stable.

What a blessed and wonderful day already, I woke up, I have all my body functions, I have a job to go to, I have food, and I am loved.

Hugs,
Wanda

It's a beautiful day...

Thursday, September 13, 2012

It's a beautiful day...okay, I can't really tell what kind of day it's going to be as yet, cause it's still very dark outside. I'm planning on having a beautiful day though *grin*

Yesterday was day a day spent mostly away from my desk at work. We had vendors meetings through out the day with some of our vendors reps. I really enjoy those meetings as they are more like sitting down with friends for a good chat that being all business.
It was a long day for me as I ended up banking 2.5 hours of overtime, but enjoyable anyway.

I'm continuing to move through the daily practices in the book I am reading and very much enjoying them.

I love the scripture: "Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will taken from him". Luke8:verse 18

I used to think it was a mean scripture before I really understood it. I began doing some investigation into it and wow, it runs hand in hand with the Law of Attraction. If you take a insert a hidden word into the scripture, it really comes alive. Try inserting the word "faith" or the word "gratefulness" after the word has and after the word have, read the scripture again.

Interesting right!

My thankfuls
1. I am thankful for new lessons that come my way so that I might understand and grow in spirit.
2. I am thankful that my phone re-charge cord was located and I can re-charge my phone without having to use Garry's cord.
3. I am thankful for my angels fixing my computer this morning so that I could log on.
4. I am thankful for great vendors meetings yesterday and knowing that the issues we brought forward will be dealt with.
5. I am thankful for gift of health that is keeping me alive.
6. I am thankful for all money that has been given to me through out my life.
7. I am thankful for the love that surrounds me and keeps me embraced with comfort and happiness.
8. I am thankful for technology that allows me to stay in touch with others.
9. I am thankful for sunshine that warms me as I spend time outdoors.
10. I am thankful for a new day of life that allows me to make wise choices in.

So blessed, how about you? Keep on focusing on all the positives in your life and more will be added onto you.

Hugs.
Wanda

September 11, so many memories

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

September 11, a day that for many reasons is etched on my mind forever. Happy Birthday, Mom. Although you are no longer here to celebrate with, you are not forgotten. It is also a day of remembrance for all those you lost their lives or had their lives changed forever thru 9/11.
Life has gone on and there is much to be thankful for.

1. I am thankful that I live in a country that allows me the freedoms that I enjoy.
2. I am thankful that I have grown up without the sound of bombing and death in my daily life.
3. I am thankful that my girls can freely choose whom to marry and whether to become educated or not.
4, I am thankful for all those who serve our country and continue to give of themselves so that I might enjoy my life.
5. I am thankful for the upbringing I received thru my parents, they taught me much about living honestly and with integrity.
6. I am thankful for my memories as they give me comfort and joy and yes, even tears.
7. I am thankful for conversations with my daughter that leave me filled with laughter.
8. I am thankful for a new day of life to receive new challenges and joys in.
9. I am thankful for guidance from above and the assurance that I need only ask for help and it will be there.
10. I am thankful for the multitude of blessings that come my way each and every day.

Have a wonderful day. Remember. It is so important that we never forget this day.

Hugs.
Wanda

    I was home sick from work that day and laying in bed watching the tv, I saw it but could not believe that, that was actually happening, what a horrible, horrible day. We do have so, so much to be thankful for.

Hugs,

Life is good!

Monday, September 10, 2012

How blessed our lives are. We have so much to be grateful for and by living a grateful life we ensure that it remains filled with things to be grateful for. Giving thanks is such a simply thing to do, yet gives us so much reward. Try it, see if it isn't true in your own life.

My list of thankfuls:
1. I am thankful for my home that provides me with shelter from the elements, keeping me warm and dry.
2. I am thankful for a mind that is capable of understanding and processing the world around me, leaving me grateful for all that I have and all that I don't have.
3. I am thankful for the harvest that comes from my garden, providing food for the winter months that is healthy and nutritious.
4. I am thankful for my health and the way my body repairs itself and maintains it self.
5. I am thankful for my cat and her unconditional love.
6. I am thankful for my job that pays me well and allows me to pay my bills.
7. I am thankful for Kefir grains that fill me with probiotics and help to keep me healthy without the use of synthetic medications.
8. I am thankful for Sparkpeople and the information they provide free of charge. The website allows me to gain the information that I need to be as healthy as I can be.
9. I am thankful for Garry and my children, the love and support that they provide me is wonderful.
10. I am thankful for eyes that can read allowing me to learn and grow.

How easy is it for you to come up with 10 "thankfuls" each morning? Each day that I do this, becomes easier than the day before. I find that through out my day, I am living in more awareness and gratitude. At night before going to bed, I review my day and give thanks for the best part of my day. Going to sleep at night with gratitude on my heart eases the way into sleep and is allowing me to wake-up the next morning in a great frame of mind.
Yep, I'm blessed.

Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda
