So glad you enjoyed your cruise, Kathleen. Glad to see you back. You were missed.

Hugs to all. Hope your day was greatly blessed. I know ours was. Hugs.

Yes, Ladies, I am still alive and well. We have been back from our cruise for almost two weeks now. We had a wonderful relaxing time. We only experienced rough seas one day and that really wasn't so bad. I did not need to take any (Dramamine). The water was so beautiful - a very deep blue with a lighter blue close to shore.

After the cruise we were able to spend about 4 hours with a cousin and his wife. I have not seen my cousin since we were young children. I had never met his wife before however we had talked on the phone.

We will be celebrating with the family this evening. Son#2 had to work today and Son#1 has to work tomorrow so we opted for an evening celebration. Pam, (SwabbieSis) and her family will be joining us also.

Last evening we had our annual Thanksgiving Eve service @ church. The Pastor read some scripture and sang a couple of songs and then the mike was passed around and every one had an opportunity to give thanks for whatever they wanted to.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to one & all

My family will gather to remember my Aunt Maxine this evening at the funeral home. Tomorrow at 3 PM CST is the graveside services. I have been up since 4:30 AM and need prayer for strength. I am falling behind on things in the house and Thursday is Thanksgiving with family here in our home. Hope you all have a blessed day. I will check in as I have opportunity. HUGS

I am grateful for days of ministry to and loving on others.

Yesterday was given to helping an elderly gentleman friend, taking him to his doctor's appointment in the city. I am still very tired from the too late nights and too early days. Today I got to spend lunch with my DIL and DGS#3 at his school. It has been good. Now I am resting a bit and will probably go have dinner with DH before settlings in for the evening. There is so much to do to be ready for the week. By grace it will be done.

Hugs to you. Praising God with you and praying for you.

Hi, Ladies. Quick update before I go to bed and get ready for an early morning. I did pretty good today. I am still not sweets free, but I am not binging either. I am very tired and needing to go to bed, but I am waiting on the dryer to go off so I can put the last load of chothes away. It has been a hectic day filled with u-turns that have hindered my getting things done. Tonight when I got home from dinner with Johnny and the school gang, I came home to news of my Aunt Maxine's departure to her eternity in Christ. I called some family to let them know and wound up on the phone with a long lost cousin for about 3 HOURS. Talk about colliflower ear. It is going to be a crazy busy week again. I don't know when I will be in tomorrow, or if I will. Hope you all have a blessed day. Hugs, Darlene

Hello, Monica, and welcome. We are happy to have you join us. I will try to write you later and tell you things to check to make sure you get your nitifications.

I am still struggling with -- or giving in is probably more accurate -- to the sweets, but today God has helped me see that I am stressing over the holidays again. Holidays are difficult for me for several reasons, not the least of which is dealing with my dad and his paranoia. God is helping me to see added stressors that I don't have to do right now so I can have strength to do what I must, should, and want to do. So hopefully I will enter His rest and say out of the sweet treats.

Busy day ahead today. I must get on top of the Thanksgiving plans, get things geared toward family and friends, and get it done. Hope you all have a great day and are rested in Him. Hugs to you, Darlene

emoticon Yesterday and the day before I binged. It wasn't onging for every long, but it was still a standoff binge. I felt so gross and disappointed. emoticon

But thanking God today, as every day, is a new day fresh with His mercies....

May we rejoice in His mercies and cling to His faithfulness and pray for our lives to be faithful in return!

I had a great day of Worship and rest. My DH has had a headache all day, so we stayed home all afternoon and rested. Hope your day was blessed.

Hey, girls. Hope you are all doing well.

I got to catch up with my friend's list for the first time in several months yesterday emoticon . I have been so busy on the home front that I am behind with many of my Spark friends. That is good from a get up and move and live life side of things, but bad for the teams and relationships here. But I am getting caught up and looking forward to the days ahead.

I am feeling better today than in a long time. Yesterday was sweets free, and I am working on day 2, feeling strength return to me. I just must keep this mindset and momentum going. Through God's grace with committed obedience to Him, I can do it. And I am so grateful for you who are praying.

Hope you have a great Saturday and a glorious Sunday.

You are doing great. I have been distracted and am not going strong--yet. I will though, and hope to finish the month out strong.

Thanksgiving day 3: Very grateful for the peace God gives me; and so grateful for His seeing Jenn and Brit here safely.

I made the mistake Thursday of buying candy that was on clearance. My favorites of course. I think it is time to practice some self-control. We'll see how well that goes. I have worked out both days so far this month, and want to get in 4 miles with Leslie Sansone today. I am determined to make this a great month.

Glad for the good report. I, too, am planning to work hard. And I am reading this book on sugar addictions and will be blogging on it some this month. Hoping for good things even as I sit here feeling a little too full after giving in to a coke float.

This year is flying by. We were at the hospital first thing this morning to get a drain put in DH's leg to help with the fluid situation. Hopefully this will help it heal faster. He has been cleared to go back to work so that is a relief for him. It will only be for about 5 hours a day, but it is good. He had training yesterday, and more tomorrow and over the weekend.

DD went back to work today after not working for over a month. She was excited, but not wanting to change her routine of not doing anything. She loves her job though because she works with dogs all day.

I am determined to get back into a workout routine. I am going to start slow and build up. Just one video instead of two or three a day. I need to start my strength training again also. I have bought a few pieces of fabric to make myself some new clothes. I need to get working on those, and Christmas presents. In January, I had determined that I was going to work on Christmas presents all year long. That didn't work out too well. Maybe next year. Have a great day.

Good morning, ladies. I can't believe it is a new month already. I am starting out behind, so that is always a good sign, right.

I had a wonderful day yesterday, got lots done, and am pumped to walk through this day. Dinner with DDIL tonight and to DGS's football game will be the highlight. Go Eagles!

This is the place this month to chat and especially to share what we are thankful for. Have a blessed November!
