Tonight is our indoor carnival for AWANA Cubbies. I've missed the kids the past few weeks due to migraines, so I have been looking forward to this all day! emoticon

I'm joining Mauri in practicing quiet moments of meditation throughout the day. Plastering a smile on my face and staying focused on all the positives.

Wonderful Wednesday

1. The snow that threatened this morning, didn't amount to much. YAY!
2. Garry phoned me to tell me that he has booked a table at the dinner theatre on Sunday for brunch and that the kids are joining us for family time.
3. I have been consistent with my exercises.


Have a great day.

What are 3 things that have made today a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY for you?

1. Sun is shining and we are having 60* temperatures today!
2. Gracie & Katie chose to have their post-breakfast naps in the same room as I was so got to enjoy their peaceful.
3. It's a normal work day so I get out at 6 PM.

Wonderful Wednesday...woo hoo!

Mauri...my day already started out wonderful...I woke up!

I will make the choice to stay positive through out the day...if I feel myself slipping, I will excuse myself and head to a location alone and refocus.

It's a great day to be alive!

What will you do today to make it a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY?

Because I have an early start to my workday at a junior high school and a meeting in my hometown at 3 PM to schedule the Hope Bus, I am not going to the office between them. I will come home, since I am meeting someone two blocks from my apartment. Then coming home and taking a break from work emails since today is day 10 of my work week.

Tonight is about the kitties & me!

With all the crazy weather across the globe, I hear a lot of negative words coming out of my mouth. I thought it would help to turn to what is WONDERFULly opposite words. List 2.

Not getting enough sleep became a wonderful night of rest last night for both of us.

Having to deal with changing the leg catheter to the bigger one at bedtime will soon be no catheter at all as he gets it taken out tomorrow.

Each day gets a little better. PTL!

Awesome challenge Mauri...thanks.

This heat and humidity is draining me....becomes....This heat and humidity sure beats the 40 below zero temperatures of winter with a wind chill. I don't have to bundle up to go outdoors.

I don't want to go to work...becomes...going to work earns me a paycheck, which in turns allows me freedom to do things.

Hugs,
Wanda

Mauri I think my biggest wonder is that God came down to earth as a little tiny baby boy and the reason He came down for all of us, to me that's a wonder beyond wonder.

I also think it's a wonder at how many people whether they can afford it or not will dig deep in their pockets and give to help others and how much it touches my heart to see people helping people.

It was a wonderful wonder to find this site and become a part of Sparkpeople and to get to know some fabulous people, I love having spark friends from all over and that we care what happens to each other.

We have so many wonderful wonders to be thankful for and one of them is you my friend.

Hugs,

So many of the holiday songs speak of WONDER...so I'm interpreting this as WONDER-FILLED WEDNESDAY.

What fills you with WONDER in a time when there is so much focus on negative events?

For me it is:
1. Babies - My co-worker takes her 2 month old son to work everyday...and I love watching him look towards the voice he hears at the moment. So much wonder in their worlds. I want to spend my day seeing/hearing the wonder in MY day.

2. A WONDER in my life is what some call coincidences - how people come into and go out of my life - how people's paths cross at just the right moment.

3. It is a WONDER to me to see the faith, hope, courage, strength and determination in the women who bless my life at work - particularly two women who have terminal breast cancer...yet laugh, smile, love more than those of us who are well.

4. It is a WONDER to me, too, to be friends with Wanda, Shirl, and some members of my other SP teams whom I've never met in person...but feel as close and loved by them as the friends who live nearby.

What are your wonders?

1. I woke this morning!
2. Passed my stress test, even if I had to cut it short by a minute because of gravity pulling on my fractured arm. Ow!
3. Spent my waking hours with Gracie & Katie.
4. The rain stopped just as I had to get out of the car at work.

to be continued...

5. Grateful that my SparkFriend Polly & her family are safe with the tornados that struck just a 1/2 mile from her home.
6. REALLY grateful that despite the tornado watch, we did not have them in RI.

Just in case I don't get back. . .
What's wonderful in my Wednesday so far is the beautiful sunshine that is streaming through my window. And it's the start of a brand new month full of wonderful dreams and positive expectations for success!
Thanks, Shirl.

June 1, this is one from a while back but thought it'd be a good one for today.

Just tell us what was Wonderful in your Wednesday today.

I'll be back later to do this one. Have a good one.

Tired to post last night, modem was giving me problems and couldn't get it done, so here I am today.

A lovely day to go to Ann Arbor. Spending time with DD and DH. We all missed lunch so when we got back home went to Wendy's and had supper together. DD was happy to get her rhubarb pie. Hubby's right eye is doing ok less fluid this time.

Hugs,

My Wednesday was Wonderful because I managed to keep my headach from overtaking my day. I had the opportunity to have fellowship time with my co-workers at our staff potluck luncheon. The sun came out for about an hour.(almost blinded me...didn't know what it was *grin*). Had an opportunity to finish a great book and then a good sleep last night.

Yep, Wednesday was wonderful.

I dug out this thread for today because I'm trying to get a streak going with my daily challenges!
There are quite a few Wednesday challenges to choose from. But, I'm going with this one.

Just tell us what was Wonderful in your Wednesday today.

My Wednesday has been wonderful because I started out my day with a "road map" of what I wanted to accomplish today and it has kept me on track. My fitness and nutrition goals are right on target and my to do list is getting smaller and smaller. Having an actual, physical list to cross off works very well to keep me motivated. I am glad that it is motivating me to do my healthy best.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

TODAY PLEASE SHARE WITH US WHAT'S BEEN WONDERFUL IN THESE WEEKS OF PREPARATION!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. My mail box both physically and online is filled with wonderful greeting from family and friends.

2. Kaeli is home safe and sound and has been a wonderful help in getting Christmas preparations ready.

3. I will have all my children home for yet another year during Christmas...I'm so blessed.

4. My home outside and inside is decorated and filled with excitement.

5. Being able to give and in turn being so blessed.

6. Our traditional Ukrainian Christmas Eve celebration.

7. Knowing that what gets done is a blessing during these crazy busy days, and what doesn't get done is not the end of the world.

Have a wonderfully blessed Christmas season. Enjoy the true meaning of the celebration.

Hugs,
Wanda

Hi, everyone. No matter which holiday you may celebrate at this time of year: Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, or New Year's, life can get very hectic and stressful. We have cooking, baking, shopping, wrapping, cleaning, etc. to do...and we can be exhausted by it all. I know for me the wonderful things that happen in these days can get lost amidst the hustle and bustle.

TODAY PLEASE SHARE WITH US WHAT'S BEEN WONDERFUL IN THESE WEEKS OF PREPARATION!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. Each day I've been receiving holiday cards from my Spark Friends at teams where I am most active...It's as if they themselves have arrived at my home.

2. Receiving cards and notes from family and friends far away and with whom I speak only a few times each year.

3. Despite the exhaustion of baking, I am anticipating the smiles and thanks as I deliver those 20 or so cookie trays!

4. The decorations - the Christmas shows on TV - the music - kids' anticipation of Santa

5. The sacredness of Silent Night - the Christmas story

6. The new tradition of visiting the Winslow Animal Farm Sanctuary for their Christmas celebration

7. That John has found a local restaurant that serves the traditional Italian 7-fishes Christmas Eve dinner - since that is what I miss most since my parents died
