Friday December 8, 2017

Hello Everyone,

So sorry I haven't posted since November it has been a long week.  I am rather thankful for a peaceful Friday night,  Originally I had plans tonight but snow changed them so now I am sitting here(watching Doctor Who of course) and just enjoying a nice night indoors.

It has been such an eventful week.  The very first day of December I had my very first piano recital. I was extremely nervous but I made it through. I played Ode to Joy, Good King Wenceslas, and Jingle Bells.  I messed up and  I improvised.  All in all however, I was proud and happy I went through with it.  The next day I had went to a parade to see my little sister who was in it (in her own car and in a pretty dress) and then my son had a Good News Club Party.  I knit a lot that night. The next day my little boy was sick so I took care of him and knit.  Monday he had boy scouts and a party for selling popcorn.  Tuesday I did something though I can't remember right off hand.  Wednesday I finally learned to complete my first hat.  Yesterday I finished some more knitting.  I of course worked and took care of other things too.  I'm not saying everything I did just pieces.  Today we finally got some snow. Like I said.  Long week and I am so glad for a night in. Though I was looking forward to seeing lights tonight(which was plans changed).   That's an overview of my long week though.  I hope everyone has had a good December so far. 

Sincerely,
BLW

Happy Thanksgiving November 21, 22, and 23, 2017

Hello Everyone,

I'm sorry.  I seem to be having trouble posting everyday.  I don't mean to not but I seem to not either way.  Today however is a day to be Thankful and not for a bunch of apologies.

Today I am thankful for....Everything
I am thankful for everything I see.  Today is good.  Not because it is perfect but because I am taking time to see the beauty in small things.  I made my first turkey.  I got to spend time with people I love.  I rested.  I created.  Everything I have done, am doing, and will do seems so beautiful.  I could not see a reason to not be thankful.

November 21: My Computer which I type on
November 22: Tanglewood Christmas lights.  A family tradition for years I am not sharing with my son :)

I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving today.

Sincerely,
BLW

November 20, 2017 Today I Am Thankful For...Day 17, 18, 19, 20

Hey Everyone,

I'm sorry it has been a few days since I post.  I was out late Friday night with my mom and sister, came home and spent the rest of the night, next day, and day after sick and bedridden.  I got better about mid-yesterday but was so exhausted and miserable I just skipped out on posting.

Today I am back though and ready to play catch up

Day 17:The Southern Christmas Show
Like I said, I was out late Friday with my mom and sister, and we went to the Southern Christmas Show.  This one is special to me.  I am not thankful for the show in particular as much as I am with the once a year depute that allows me to spend time with my mom and sister.  Going around and looking at all the Christmas stuff and spending time with each other.  This to me is what the season is about, family.  I love the time I spend each year with my mom and sister and it is always something I look forward to.

Day 18: My Health
There is nothing like a few days in bed and being sick to make you very grateful for getting up everyday and having your health.

Day 19:Clean Water
Because there is nothing more refreshing than a glass of clean water.  My cup runs over.

Day 20:Prayer
Knee mail.  I really do believe the only way to stand is on your knees with lifted hands(check out Casting Crowns song Courageous).  When all else fails or everything is great from my highest and my lowest points I know I am never alone.  I talk to my Father through prayer.  I am always connected to Him.  No one can take that away from me. 

Again, I am sorry I got behind.  I didn't mean to be down and out.  I hope you guys are enjoying my I am Thankful for... so far.  Hopefully it has inspired or helped you in some way.  I'll see you tomorrow.  I think it's going to be another cold night so I pray you all stay warm. 

Sincerely,
BLW

November 16, 2017 Today I Am Thankful For...Day 16

Hello everyone,
What another lovely day it is today.  Then again, everyday is a day isn't it.  Today I would to express my thankfulness for my car.  I have had a good car go bad on my quickly before in the past and to have something to runs, has a working air and heat system, and only needs regular maintenance is really and truly a blessing.  It might not be this car or that car but it is my car and I am so so blessed to have it.  Truly thankful.
Sincerely,
BLW

November 15, 2017 Today I Am Thankful For... Day 15

Hello Again,
Did you know today was National clean your refrigerator out Day?  If not you better get to cleaning lol just kidding.  Today I am Thankful for my refrigerator.  I’ve had a lot of problems with it this last year and have looked at replacements and they are expensive, so today I am so thankful for my refrigerator and that it still works.  It isn’t perfect but it keeps the things I need cold.  For that I am grateful.
Sincerely,
BLW
