Simple Life Surprise!!!!

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Yesterday, I got the most WONDERFUL surprise in the mail. FLORIDASUN sent me this....

It's a Simple Life 2014 calendar!!!! It is the cutest thing. It's probably too hard to read in the picture, but the outer cover of the calendar says:

Celebrate Everything

Be Joyful

It's All Good

I absolutely love the calender. The artwork on it is just my style and green seems to be my color these days since my cancer diagnosis. Green juices, green tea, green all seems to be green. I think of green as being a sign of life and health so I'm embracing green as my new color!

This calendar is perfect. When I first saw it, I cried. They were tears of wonder and gratitude for such a thoughtful and lovely gift. Just the thought of being alive and being able to fill the calendar with events makes me so filled with hope and gratititude. I think instead of using it like a traditional calendar where I would fill it with upcoming things, I might use it to write down each day something I found joy in that day. It could become a wonderful momento of the year. I like that idea!

Each monthly page of the calendar has fun, uplifting things to say like:

Life is your Dance

Home is my heaven

Find your quiet space

I just love it!

Thanks FLORIDASUN!!! emoticon You rock!!!

Life is good!

Green is meant as a renewal, freshing of the earth for a grateful coming days.
You have the right idea for counting your Blessings.

    Yay! I'm sooooo happy you like it, it just sang your name to me as I walked by it. I loved that it reinforces your spark moniker...and I love the whimsical drawings so cute and FUN just like you. I also love that it marks the wonderful days you have in your future!

Here's the deal....we all walk through life's's just so much easier to get to the other side with a little help from our friends!

What we are experiencing right now is absolutely nothing compared to what you and your dear hubby are going through. Just remember I'm totally cognizant of that and I'm in awe with how strong and brave you are just leaves me with a wonderful role model and a very special and wonderful friend!

Hang in there...better days are ahead...for both of us!!

Big love emoticon

    How pretty, wish I was that crafty lol.
Good to see you in good spirits my friend.
I hope that you are doing well.
I also hope that your family are doing fine as well.
My grandmother and I are alright. Just tried.
Dad had to be their early for his knee surgery today.
(I think I talked about it earlier). Forgive me if I didn't.
Long story short the knee replacement surgery went well.
Dad will start physical therapy tomorrow.
(He is just too groggy right now).
Will keep everyone updated on him.
Have a good night my friend! HOLLY emoticon
