Brrrr Baby Its Cold Outside. . .

Thursday, December 23, 2010

So Sparkfam its been one of those days here in Chicago. First I would like to say, that I have been having a blessed week, filled with happiness & the joy of the Lord! I have been getting a lot done & actually had a few things that I needed to do. So I have been holding out & buying few gifts as possible for my kids & walking by faith. Then I got a blessing of $350 & I was so excited, then of course a ticket my son got $50 so I was bummed that they wouldn't let me contest it but I will pay it. I also had to pay a portion of his graduation from high school fees. So then I went & picked out my new furniture set (just a couch & love seat) its gorgeous too. They delivered it & then my precious uncle sent me Christmas dinner and 2 sides!!

He actually purchased it through Honey Baked Ham Co. I got a ham, roasted turkey, assorted cheese cake (YUK!), side of green bean casserole & sweet potato souffle. I was out done!! Then we had our Christmas party at work & almost everyone exchanged gifts. We had breakfast: scrambled eggs, irish sausages, bacon, hash brown, did I say bacon? Blueberry pancakes, mimosas, orange juice & man was it good!! My boss handed us Jewel gift cards for $100! So I am not finished but then I get home BAM, my heat is broke. My pilot light is lite but its not producing any heat. So I put on a portable heater after trying to turn it off & on, checking the fuses (man, I am almost a do it yourselfer) I turned on the oven. The hubby came home & put to wires together & it was on like popcorn! God is good, I mean, I have been thankful but it does lend itself to a new meaning when you stand in need. I was a little put off that I didn't have heat but I came to myself thinking of all the homeless we have downtown Chicago. Leaving under Lower Wacker Drive not wanting to go to shelters & I thank God & prayed for them.

So it might be cold outside but I am blessed!

What are you thankful for this Christmas?!!

God bless you all & enjoy everyday!!

    If you're in Chicago and want to help the homeless guys, I know where they hang out!!! From when I drove a limo, I can tell you the exact location to leave food or stuff they will really appreciate it!!! It is an overhang on Franklin Street right under the Eisenhower Expressway. Literally under it. They all go under there with their sleeping bags. Occasionally the cops would come and kick them out but not that often.
    Merry Christmas!!!

    If not for your son getting the ticket and your heater breaking down, it sounds like an awesome day! That was very nice of your uncle to send that food to you Dee! and I would love to work where you work! sounds like a lot of fun and the food they served sound delish! I am thankful for everything I have , I am very lucky. I feel bad for the people who are homeless or do not have it as good as I do. Have a Good day and keep up the awesome work! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
