Making it work.

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

We all have those days when we are just tired of doing everything that we are supposed to do and just want to say "not today". Thank goodness we have each other for support and encouragement. Sometimes it's a direct word from fellow sparkers, sometimes it's just reading something they have written that helps us through the obstacle we are dealing with. I just want to say thank you to all of you for being here and giving me a place to turn when I need that extra push. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Each morning I start off my day with prayer and positive affirmations. It has become such a habit now, that I'm not sure that I could get through my day without having done that. It's not always the same affirmations or the same prayer, but lends itself to how I am feeling at that moment. Life is good.

My Thank yous
1. Thank you that I can ask for an receive help with any and all issues that I might be dealing with on a daily basis. Whether it's asking a fellow traveler or asking God or my angels, it doesn't matter, the help is always forthcoming. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Garry has arranged to have time off his work to come with me to my appointment on Thursday as moral support. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Thank you for the healthy food that is in my home for me to eat and that I have renewed determination to be successful. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Thank you for the work that will be waiting for me this morning as I head to work. I enjoy having a busy day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Thank you for the internet that not only keeps me connected to friends and family, but is a place to turn when I have questions. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you for our county and their organics collection. Being able to compost our organics is wonderful when many might not have the place to compost in their own yards. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Thank you that we are encouraged to live "green" and we are offered support from our county. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Thank you for the slow and gradual melting of all the snow we have. Although there is still potential for flooding, the slow melt makes things better. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Thank you for lemon juice which is not only healthy for me, but encourages me to drink more water and eliminate all the unnecessary dressings on my salads. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Most of all, having the blessing of a new day of life. A new opportunity to improve and become more the person that I desire to be. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a wonderful Tuesday,
Hugs,
Wanda

April Fool's Day

Monday, April 01, 2013

A new beginning to a new month. April Fool's day today also. I'm choosing to NOT be a fool. I will make wise choices and move forward in my journey to health.

So far the predicted weather forecasts have been wrong, let's hope that they continue that way and that the sunshine keeps on making it's appearance. I have a short work week, only three days this week. I have Thursday and Friday off work to give myself another lovely long weekend. I am believing that I will have some answers this week also as I see the surgeon on Thursday. Yep, life is good!

My Thank yous:
1. Thank you for the lovely Easter weekend and time with my family .Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Thank you for Quin's phone call yesterday and having a few minutes to chat with him and know that all is well with him. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Thank you for the short work week this week. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Thank you for Garry so willingly going and giving my vehicle a wash yesterday and getting all the road salt and muck off. Hopefully it will stay clean at least for a day or two. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Thank you for the fresh veggies and fruit that I have to take with me to work for my snacks. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you for the strength that is being given to my cousins and uncle as they minister to my aunt in her last days. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Thank you for the will power that I have to make healthy choices. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Thank you for joy of listening to all the birds as they begin their spring rituals of building nests and preparing for another year of raising their babies. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Thank you for the busy little squirrel that races back and forth along our back fence as he gathers the peanuts that someone is putting out for him further down from us. Such an industrious little guy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Thank you for the signs of spring that are slowly emerging from this very long winter. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful Monday.
Hugs,
Wanda

Happy Easter

Sunday, March 31, 2013

Wishing everyone a Blessed and Happy Easter.

We had our big meal yesterday with the girls and Shyra's boyfriend. It is so much fun getting together with them all. Only wish that Quin had been able to attend. Unfortunately he is still working out of town.

We ended up playing some great games of Uno last evening and shared many laughs.

My Blessings:
1. It is such a blessing living so close to the kids and that they enjoy spending time with Mom and Dad. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. A great blessing to have Shyra's boyfriend wanting to spend time with us also and have him fit right in so well. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. The gift of Life that has been given to all of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. We missed getting the snow that was predicted last evening, YAY. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. So blessed and happy that as children we were taught that simple pleasures, playing board and card games and just spending time together connecting are a true gift. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I am blessed that I have another very short work week as I have this coming Thursday and Friday off as I attempt to use up some more of my overtime. Another four day weekend to look forward to. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I am blessed to own a blender that quickly and easily makes up my breakfast smoothies using fresh fruit and coconut or almond milk. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. The snow is melting slowly and so far our sump pump is easily keeping up with the melt. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. We are blessed to be living in a community that cares about the environment and works hard to ensure that it's citizens care also. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I am blessed to have been granted a new day of life that I might continue to grow and learn. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a blessed and wonderful day.
Happy Easter,
Wanda

March 30

Saturday, March 30, 2013

Today the girls are coming over and Kaeli is going to cook a turkey that she has prepared for Easter dinner. I will put on the rest of the meal with Shyra's help. I love that my girls are able to help with the preparations of celebration dinners. We decided to do our meal today as it then leaves us a day of total relaxation on Sunday before having to head back to work on Monday.

Yesterday was a wonderful day of sunshine and spending time with Garry. Got a few chores done around the house and enjoyed having Friday off work.

My Blessings:
1. I'm so blessed by all the lovely comments that others leave on my blog. It always amazes me that such a simply act of acknowledging the blessings in my life has such a positive impact on others. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the gift of sharing.
2. We are blessed as a family that we enjoy each others company and willing spend time together having fun. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I'm blessed with a hubby who supports and encourages me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I'm blessed by the sun shine that streams in my windows and not only warms my home by brightens the rooms. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I'm blessed by the knowledge that I can take my cares to the cross and that God will help me through what ever is happening. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I'm blessed to have the opportunity to plan and prepare for our eventual retirement. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm blessed to have the great health that I already experience, health that is free of having to take prescriptions medications on a daily basis. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I'm blessed to be able to take a couple of days off next week giving myself another 4 days weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I'm blessed to be able to share some great reading material with someone else in my circle of friends. Wendy has done so much for me, providing her with a book seems very small in comparison. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I'm blessed with the knowledge of why we celebrate at Easter time and am so grateful for the gift that has been given to us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a great and wonderful day.

Wanda
