Off to a great start this morning!

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

I spun the wheel first thing this morning and won 100 spark points, a very nice start to my day.

Yesterday was a long day at work as we had our rep from one of our vendor in for a visit and he didn't get into town until almost my home time. Spent a couple of extra hours at work meeting with him. A good visit.

Kaeli had her bone scan done yesterday and now we wait for the results. I'm trusting the Lord that what ever healing is needed is already taking place. Garry is getting about much better and he is hoping that we can start walking without his crutches soon. What a wonderful and miraculous gift "healing" is.

My Blessings:
1. I'm blessed that the gift of healing is at work in my family's lives. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I'm blessed that although I had to stay late at work yesterday, I was able to get home in time to accomplish some things at home. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I'm blessed to have such a tight knit and loving family. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I'm blessed that I have co-workers that all work together well and any minor disputes are exactly that, minor. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I'm blessed to be able to surround myself with positive thinking persons. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I'm blessed to live in a county that works hard at providing for all the the communities needs without taxing people to the max. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm blessed to have a warm place to live, food on my table, clean water and reliable transportation. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. It's payday today, that is a blessing as I can pay the bills that are waiting to be paid. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I'm blessed to be able to use a tax program (Turbo tax) each year to help me do our taxes. I can't imagine having to do them without the program or having to pay someone else to do them. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I'm blessed to be alive to continue to work on my spiritual growth. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Mindfulness

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

As I continue on my journey to a healthier whole person, I'm realizing how much the act of mindfulness plays a role. It's not only just about eating right, exercising and keeping a positive attitude. Mindfulness in everything plays a huge part in either the progression or lack there of on the journey.
I'm finding that by slowing down and really paying attention to the triggers, the responses and my actions I'm gaining more control in all areas of my life. I'm finding that with mindfulness when eating that I can see and feel how certain foods interact with my body and I can take the steps necessary to change things. I find with mindfulness during exercise, I'm more aware of how my body responds and the areas of my body that need extra attention. With mindfulness in my interactions with others, I'm finding it much easier to keep things positive. It's interesting to me how much "deeper" the meaning of "mindfulness" is compared to the word "aware".

My Gratefuls:
1. I'm grateful for a good nights sleep leaving me more energized this morning. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I'm grateful for being able to walk and move my body, as my knee continues to do it's thing, I'm much more grateful everyday of how much I have been blessed with in my body. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I'm grateful for the how much the Law of Attraction works in my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I'm grateful for my job that enables me to sit while I work instead of having to stand or move around while my knee is waiting for repairs. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I'm grateful for the opportunities that come my way each day to practice my life lessons and learning. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I'm grateful that my brother only sustained bruising when he fell at work and not more serious injuries. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm grateful for the snow storm taking a different path yesterday and missing us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I'm grateful for living in a place that takes environmental issues seriously. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I'm grateful for my library that not only provides me with a job, but also provides me with a variety of reading material. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I'm grateful for all the freedoms that I have and the knowledge that although things are not always "perfect", that I don't have to live in fear. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a great and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Last week of February

Monday, February 25, 2013

This month has really flown by. Friday is already the first of March.
It seems lately that my life is marked by specific dates (appointments) and that is what my focus seems to be on. If it's not a celebration of some sort, it's a doctor's appointment. Going forward though, I will not have to take Garry to his appointments, he'll be able to take himself! He is back driving with caution. The doctor has told him that he can take his air boot off to drive back and forth to work. He is so pleased to have this part of his life back.

Kaeli goes tomorrow for her bone scan to see exactly what is happening in her back. So blessed that she is able to get in so quickly. I guess it makes a difference if the radiologist is the one requesting that she comes back. We are trusting the Lord and keeping positive with the results.

I'm still seeing my 444 numbers on a regular basis, so know that my angels are surrounding me and that all will be well.

My Blessings:
1. Garry's healing that is taking place and allowing him to regain some of his mobility. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Kaeli's being able to get in so quickly for her bone scan. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. My gluten-free waffles that I get to have for breakfast, they really are very tasty. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. A bit of snow predicted for today and then once again warmer temps heading into next weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I made a start on sorting through some things for our spring garage sale and made the decision to let my doll collection go. That won't hit the garage sale, but I will put on kiiji or ebay. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Garry is contemplating letting his model car collection go also. Both collections have been in storage for the past 10 years...it's time. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. A nice phone chat with my trucking brother yesterday. I love that he calls us when he is going through town just to keep in touch. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. We got our Direct energy bill on Friday and what a great surprise to see that it was $60.00 less than last month. This warmer weather really makes a difference. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I'm blessed with a job that I enjoy doing and a busy week ahead to help the time pass quickly. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I'm blessed with good heath and a family that is bonded closely. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful day.
Hugs,
Wanda

Fun Family night last night.

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Great day yesterday. Got my household chores done, went shopping with Kaeli. We found a couple of cute newborn things for Elizabeth and a nice big sister outfit for Jaidyn. We had lunch out and then a trip to Costco to pick up some steaks for Garry to BBQ for the girls and him. They had a great and very yummy guinoa salad for all of us too.
We ended up playing several rounds of UNO and shared lots of laughter and groans. A great evening.

My Blessings:
1. Sharing a wonderful girl time with Kaeli during the day catching up with each others news. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Finding some nice inexpensive, but very cute baby things as well as a great little outfit for Jaidyn. Love the sales. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Garry BBQing for supper last evening. First one of the new year! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. A great guinoa salad from Costco, so I didn't really have a lot to do with supper preparations. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. An update from my cousin of the condition of Aunt Muriel. Thank you Lord that you are surrounding the family in their time of need. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. We are taking steps towards our dream of building the perfect home for Garry and I. We have found a home plan that we all love and now we will take it to a friend that is an architect and see if he can do the tweaking for us to create exactly what we want. One step at a time. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Sunshine once again today. Love the longer days. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Phone call from Quin to let us know that all is well in his world and he hopes to be home for a few days the end of the month. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Garry is starting to get about much better and easier, which makes him very happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. We have been blessed with a new day of life, love that Gods still feels we have things to do. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a blessed and wonderful Sunday. Live with gratefulness as part of your life.

Hugs,
Wanda

So nice to sleep in...

Saturday, February 23, 2013

I'm learning to love Saturday mornings just because I get to sleep in. When you are up at 4:30 am every work day, sleeping until 7 is a real luxury.

Not much on my agenda today. I have the usual household chores to do. Going out shopping for a baby gift with Kaeli and then the girls are coming over this evening.

It's my BIL's birthday today, so will remind Garry to give Brian a call. It's also our Marla's birthday today, so if you are stopping by her page or are friends with her on Facebook, wish her a happy birthday.

Garry is doing really good on walking with his broken leg. He is still using his crutches, but so far no problems with putting some pressure on the leg. Yay!

My Gratefuls:
1. I'm grateful for the healing that is taking place in Garry's body. He is so much more happy now that he can do things again. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I'm grateful for this weekend to relax and recharge in. It was a very busy week at work last week. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I'm grateful for Kaeli coming with me today and some girl time with her. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I'm grateful for a great night's sleep last night. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I'm grateful for the sunshine that is brightening our days, everyone's mood is so much more uplifted. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I'm especially excited and grateful for Garry and I being on the same game plan for our future. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm grateful that the bill I received yesterday from Direct Energy is about $60.00 less than last month! The day light and warmer weather are making a difference.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I'm grateful for the will power to stay on track with healthier eating. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I'm grateful for both Garry and my jobs that enable us to earn a living and enjoy life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I'm grateful for the love of friends and family. My life is so much richer for having them in it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful Saturday. Take the time to laugh.

Hugs,
Wanda
