Woo Hoo...last day of work for 5 days!

Friday, December 21, 2012

Today is the last work day for the week and then I have 5 days off! I need to finish off my last two stocking stuffers this weekend and get the preparations all made for Christmas Eve supper and then it's smooth sailing for some relaxation.

I woke up a bit later than usual this morning. Usually I wake up before the alarm rings, but not this morning. Now I'm feeling a bit rushed.

My Positives:
1. I'm grateful for alarm clocks, even though I don't like the sound mine makes. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. It's Friday! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I have 5 days off work to look forward to. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. We got the budgets spent at work...only $8.21 left over. Woo Hoo. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. The Kidney Foundation is coming to pick up Kaeli's old car. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Garry has been a huge help on his days off, all my bathrooms are cleaned, floors vacuumed and washed. Bless his heart. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. A lovely long chat with my SIL last evening, catching up on all the family news. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. No snow to shovel this morning, just very cold temperatures to brave. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I'm blessed with having all my children around me at Christmas time. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Blessed with a new day of life....so grateful for all the wonders in my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a great day, be excited about your life.

Hugs,
Wanda

Technology and I are not on good terms.

Thursday, December 20, 2012

I'm so disappointed with my efforts at video taping a moment in time last evening. I even practiced video taping earlier in the day so that I knew what I had to do. Unfortunately all I caught was the garage door opening. I think that when I reached up to turn the overhead light on, I must have stopped the recording somehow and did not realize it until we went to review it all. Oh well, it's done and although we don't have a recording, the blessing is still in place.

The blessing:
Kaeli's car has been on it's last legs, barely even producing any heat, which is vital in the winter time here. Garry and I have been saving up a bit at a time to hopefully be able to help her out in the spring with a cheap used car. Kaeli just isn't able to afford a car herself as she now has a mortgage as well as she is still paying off student loans. I have been praying about her need and thanking God for providing a vehicle for her.
Last Friday, her bosses came to Garry and told him that they have had a fantastic year and wanted to purchase Kaeli a new car as her Christmas bonus! They gave Garry a price range and said they wanted something for her that has lots of warranty on it. After the shock wore off and the tears were wiped, Garry, Shyra and I got to go and hunt for a new vehicle for Kaeli. We found a couple of them that we thought would be great cars for her and then left the choice up to Shane and Gayle.
Last night we gathered at our place and then called Kaeli and asked her to come over as her Dad needed some help with something. When she opened the garage door, she was pretty shocked as you can imagine to see us all standing there and a lovely red car with green bow on it. Shane and Gayle made the presentation of the keys which shocked her even more.

All I can say is that we were blessed to witness such a wonderful Christmas blessing and are incredibly grateful for how the Universe provides in such unexpected ways.

I will take a picture of Kaeli and her new car and post it later, in the meantime....sorry that the promised video is not available.

Gratitude:
1. We are so blessed and grateful that our children have all got incredible work ethic and that they employers are so appreciative. Thank you, thank you. thank you.
2. Thank you Universe for providing beyond our wildest dreams. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I am so grateful how learning about the Law of Attraction and living in gratitude on a daily basis has so changed our lives. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I am grateful to learn that my cousin is going to be in the area during the Christmas holidays and that we will be able to get together. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I am grateful that I only have 2 work days left and then 5 days of holidays. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. It's pretty hard to top last nights beautiful moment, but I'm even more excited to see what is in store for us next! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I am grateful that all of my children will be with us for Christmas and that their friends are joining us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Thank you for the gift of healing that is mending and repairing my body, I look forward to a completely healed knee. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Thank you for the blessing of a new day of life that allows me to grow and learn and be a part of so many opportunities. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Thank you that despite always hearing about the "bad" things in the news, that there are still "good" things that happen. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a blessed and wonderful day.
Hugs.
Wanda

PS...we are paying it forward with the Kaeli's old clunker and donating it to the Kidney Foundation. What a blessing that there are places that we can offer it to that will benefit from it.

    Beautiful! What a wonderful comment on Kaeli's spirit and character...that is so wonderful! I'm so happy for all of you to experience this.

When I finally made it to the Grand Canyon after 52 years of it being on my "things to do before I die list," I bought a new camera and an extra battery. As we approach the canyon, I decided to change the battery - only to discover the salesperson sold me the wrong size battery. I was so disappointed...until I realized that G-d knew how much I wanted to see...and this was His way of seeing it through my own eyes, havng the actual memory of that sight, than through a camera lens. Perhaps it is so for all of you...that you remember all of it by sensory memory.

Hugs.

It's a special day.

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Happy Birthday to a wonderful young lady that shares her life with us...our youngest daughter turns 25 today. I can still clearly remember all the details of her entry into our lives. What an incredible blessing she was, is and will always be. A beautiful child has grown into a beautiful young lady. Not only is the package on the outside beautiful, her spirit is beautiful also.

Today she also shares her birthday with two other co-workers. What are the odds of three people in the same place of work, staff of 100, having the same birth date!

My Positives:
1. Having the gift of Shyra in our lives and the opportunity to learn and grow with and from her. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I had a lovely long conversation with our Granddaughter's daddy last evening. It was great to catch up on all the news. Thank you for the wonderful father that he is. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. We get to be a part of the surprise blessing that will take place tomorrow evening. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. A great day at work yesterday, Gail and I got to go out and purchase books at our local Chapters store. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the fun we had.
5. It's snowing, but Garry is off work today and will do the shoveling. Yay. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Garry's youngest brother will be in town tomorrow, so we will get to see him before Christmas. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Shyra found out yesterday that her position at work is being bumped up a level, which translates into a sizable pay raise for her. What a blessing! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. The amazing ways that the Universe and all that entails is providing in our lives. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I am so grateful for the books that I am lead to read and all the information they impart to help me to grow and learn. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Thank you for the new day of life to enjoy, share and be creative in. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a blessed and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Countdown to Christmas!

Monday, December 17, 2012

One more week of work and then 5 days off! YAY!

I have a preparations to make this week for our Christmas dinner celebration on Christmas Eve and then some serious relaxation to enjoy.

Happy Birthday to a very special team mate and wonderful friend...Shirl (Yoyonomore). May your day be filled with wonderful memories and blessings.

Two of my contacts with our vendors are also celebrating birthdays today. Tomorrow is our baby girls 25th birthday and on Wednesday is Garry's brothers birthday. Once we celebrate the Lord's birthday, we can head on into January and celebrate Garry and Kaeli's birthdays. *grin*.
What can I say...we like to celebrate in the winter, helps us get through the cold and snow *grin*.


My Positives:
1. Bless Garry's heart for buying a LED night light for the top of the stairs, his heart is in the right place, unfortunately the light is not! It shines directly into the bedroom, and the cat likes to come and go so leaving the door closed is not an option. On the plus side, it really lights up the stairs. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. The first couple of days of this week at work will be super busy, but the rest of the week should be pretty light. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. JF arrives on Sunday, it will be so nice to see him. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Garry has some holiday time to use up so is taking it off this week (he will be on call only). Yay, he has time to complete a couple of projects. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I did not have a good day with my eating yesterday, but thankfully, today is a new day and I can start anew. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. The Law of Attraction is at work in so many positive ways in our lives. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the blessings.
7. My family is well and healthy and strongly united. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I have free will to make my own choices. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I am blessed with a home, food on the table and warm clothing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I am blessed with ability to shape my day according to my actions and reactions. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful day, it's your choice!

Hugs,
Wanda

    Thank you for the birthday wishes. Morning got off to a good start Clenton took me out to Mc Donald's for breakfast, so didn't have to cook or do dishes, he also got me a nice warm throw to cover up with if I get chilly while watching tv or sitting reading. I got some nice gifts from my kids. That is so nice that you get extra time off during the holidays. I hope your DD enjoys her birthday tomorrow. Enjoy your day and evening.

Hugs,
Shirl
