Donna - having someone help keep up the house is a LIFESAVER for me. Yes, it makes our budget a little tighter, but it's SO worth the sacrifice!

Hopefully everyone is having a thrilling Thursday!!!

Oh no, Shirl! Computer problems are so frustrating. I hope you get it sorted out quickly!

Heather, I hope you enjoyed the pretty day. It was nice here, too!

Sorry my Wednesday wasn't so wonderful my computer might have been hacked. One nice thing is I met my DD for a frothy coffee after she got out of work, that made the day a little better.

I have a new housekeeper starting tonight! That makes today wonderful! With my bum knees and torn shoulder tendon, and my personal housekeeper going off to college (my daughter!), my house has gotten away from me. So many tasks are difficult for me to accomplish and the last thing Jim wants to do after being gone all week is spend the weekend cleaning house AND doing yardwork, etc, etc. So I broke down and found someone to help me every other week. I'm so relieved!!

Wonderful Wednesday:

Today, I am so thankful for my wonderful assistant Jen. She is FANTASTIC and makes work much more fun and manageable. I can always count on her to make sure everything gets done the way it needs to, and she is always consistent with our students and staff - everyone is treated with patience and love, even when they are not treating her with patience and love.

I'm so lucky to work with such a great lady. Now I'm going to go tell her to make sure SHE knows I think she's wonderful!

Wonderful Wednesday.

Yep, it sure is. The sun was shining when I got home from work and I got to sit out on my back deck with the cat and enjoy the peacefulness. Did a bit of tanning so that I don't scare people with my whiteness! I'm actually surprised at how quickly I tan now. My arms are already taking on a brown tone. YAY...no burning! I'm not a person that deliberately sunbathes, but figured with heading to Mexico having a base coat of a tan might prevent me looking burnt in the photos *grin*

I love spring time with all the trees beginning to bud out and flowers beginning to poke their heads out of the ground. The grass is slowly turning green and I can soon get out in my garden!

My life is wonderful this season because the SUN is shining and it's not DARK when I get home anymore!!! I can take my walks after dinner, or sit out on the deck with Mr. Handsome and our pups and enjoy the weather!

Good think it's Wonderful Wednesday, because the weather IS beautiful today. Tomorrow, it'll be Thunderous Thursday...

Thanks, Shirl. Had trouble connecting to the internet at home this morning.

Spring is such a wonderful time of year with everything around us renewing itself. What makes your life wonderful during this season?

I love seeing the trees bud - especially the magnolia trees, and there is a huge one in the front yard at my new apartment. I love watching the birds flitting from branch to branch...and tittering as they sit in the sun.

I just enjoy seeing everything coming back to life, flowers, trees, green grass, birds coming back from their winter homes, building nests and having babies, it renews my spirit.

Phone call from my boss telling me that she didn't want me back at work until ALL my symptoms are gone...I get to work from home instead. YAY. I love working from home and get so much more done cause I don't have any interruptions *grin*.

I am on the mend and the throat is not as sore as it was, still very hoarse, but I'm practicing my Betty Davis impersonation so all is good.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Shirl...glad to hear that you are enjoying your Birthday. Hugs.

It is such a wonderful time of year (as long as it doesn't an*w in my world). The watching of the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" is a tradition in many homes. What makes your life wonderful?
*************
That is a good movie and one that we always watch.

To keep the real reason we celebrate, the birth of the child in the stable, and not get caught up in the commercialism. The time we get with family during this season, which is special all year, but seems even more so at this time of the year. Remembering to count all our blessings big and small. Watching the holiday specials with my DH.

This is my favorite time of the year because I get to see family who live far away. I also enjoy the changes of the season especially the snow. I love baking Christmas goodies even though it is hard not to eat to much. And most of all my relationship with the Lord God almighty is stronger than ever. Don't forget the true meaning of Christmas! emoticon

******************************
For me it is...
...having the wonderful relationship that we have with our children and their significant others.We are so blessed to have them living close by.
...the people that I choose to surround myself with that give me encouragement, support and challenge me to continue to be the best that I can be; letting go of those that have their own path to walk that no longer is one that I choose and doing it without anger or unforgiveness.
...the knowledge that I have a purpose in this world and that as I submit to that purpose how right it all feels.

Have a blessed and wonderful day.

Hugs,
Wanda

Mauri...thank you for this challenge, it is an excellent one.

For me it is...
...having friends who truly love me &give me the gift of loving them.
...my job that presents so many opportunities to make a difference in someone's life everyday.
...the gift this year of being forced to let go of material goods and memories attached, truly knowing what matters most.

Those are for starters. I am blessed.

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 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.

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.

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,
Shirl

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.

Hugs,
Wanda

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!

~Nancy~

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.

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
