BE THANKFUL

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Be Thankful
By Author Unknown

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference.

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.


Wishing you all a very blessed Thanksgiving!

Thank you!

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

A big thank you to all of you for your thoughts, concerns, and prayers for Hurricane Sandy.
We were so blessed, didn't get hit nearly as hard as predicted. We had rain & some high winds, but we never lost power. All is well in upstate NY! Talked with my son earlier this morning. There is flooding and high winds, but he never lost power. He did get called into the hospital this morning, but he only lives 3 miles away and made it safely :)

My thoughts and prayers go out to those in NYC, Long Island, etc. who got hit very hard. I have friends in NYC who are okay, but haven't heard from my friends on LI. Praying that they are safe.

Praying for those in Sandy's path

Monday, October 29, 2012

I will keep everyone in Sandy's path in my thoughts and prayers. This is supposedly the biggest hurricane ever recorded for the Atlantic basin.

I am in upstate NY. We are as prepared as we can be, stocked up with provisions. Winds are already picking up, and most likely we will lose power (perhaps up to several days) sometime today or during the night. We are lucky to have a pellet stove for some heat. I did have to run to the store this morning to pick up cat food. I have 5 cats, and I just can't run out of food for them...they are my babies ;)

I'm concerned about my son who lives in Baltimore. He has never lived through a major storm (other than snow) and is nervous. He is a neurosurgical PA and was told all surgeries have been cancelled, to stay home from work for at least the next 2 days. If ER or trauma needs him, they will call as he has experience in both. I told him that he is prepared, to use his head and stay safe. Do we ever stop worrying about our children? I don't think so!

Everyone in Sandy's path, please stay safe.

Keeping you and your son in thoughts and prayers. And, no, we never stop worrying about our children. Once a Mom, always a Mom :) Wind gusts here up to 86 mph and the storm hasn't even hit land yet.

    I live on the east coast of Florida, and we had 3 days of tropical storm winds and the water was high. We never lost power and had no damage to our property, which was wonderful. I pray for those of you up north who will have to go through the wrath of this storm. Just hunker down and hang in there!!! And NO, we don't ever stop worrying about our "children". emoticon

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRUELOU!!!

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Today (Thursday) is the birthday of one of my best Spark friends, TRULOU! She joined SP just days after I did, and we've been friends ever since!

Have you ever asked God for giving you one more chance to fulfil your dreams? He's given in to you in the form of a Birthday! Celebrate this day and mark it in the calendar of your life to achieve many more milestones ahead.

May every path be smooth for you,
May every corner bring you happy surprises,
May every day put a smile on your face,
May every friend bring you price and joy,
May you get whatever you always wished for,
And may you never forget ME!

The day is beautiful, and occasion is special. I wish you all the faith, courage and luck to succeed in all walks life. May you have a wonderful year. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday!

See you at the party!
