Thankful For ...

  • Delicious red cups full of delicious coffee, and the conversation that came with it
  • An equally delicious little girl that smiles every time you look at her, she does a heart good
  • A not so little anymore boy who just absorbs everything put in front of him.  This book happened to be on pulleys and the like (thank you Uncle Todd)
  • The joy of reading, even at such a young age

Right where you are supposed to be

One of the blogs I read is a group of women living their lives and learning how to be emotionally "organic".  Today is one of those days I have been dreading since I left Georgia.  This happens to be the post from that blog, just what I needed today!

(taken from roots of she )

This is where the magic happens

Under The Same Sun, originally uploaded by some_stuff
This is when the magic happens: right when you feel like everything is going wrong, shift your attitude to accept that it’s actually going right.
Our judgments of how we think our life should be are preventing us from reaching our Highest Potential.
If you’re going through a storm, hold the belief that it’s the perfect storm for you to be going through and that you’ve been given everything you need to weather the storm. When the chaos subsides you will experience the Truth that is forever true; you are always taken care of, exactly where you need to be and your efforts are rewarded exactly when they need to be.
Remember this Truth the next time a storm is on the horizon and you will grow wings and be able fly right over it and towards the calm waters of Trust and Love.

Thankful For...

  • A quiet place to rest
  • A smiling, laughing little girl.  She seems to be forever laughing
  • The man who makes her smile and laugh and never seems to get tired of doing it
  • Something soft to knit and the little head it will soon go on
  • Little hands that want to cut
  • Random toys left out that were so enjoyed the day before
  • The book that quiets my  mind
  • Watching the birds at work, always so busy and seemingly happy.  Maybe I could learn a little something from them
  • A little boy who wants to wrestle, but his reserve at wearing the singlet.  He's getting there...
  • Not having to do all the dishes

  • What better to start with than a BOOM!
  • And how about a little bit from the 90's?
  • One from the Late Amy Winehouse.
  • And who can't help but laugh when listening to this one!! Don't forget the "wiggle wiggle wiggle" gentlemen!!
  • Feel the beat
  • And who doesn't need a good feeling every once in awhile?  
  • I hate to say it but boots and boys? Yes please!
  • Time for a little breather? Are you sweating yet? Try this one on for size! Just a bit of info to help out here - a ten cent pistol is (as defined by urban dictionary) Drugs (usually heroin) laced with lethal amounts of poison. Arsenic is common. Used as revenge against addicts and dealers alike
  • Now for a little Gossip because you all know you do it!
  • And this one because who hasn't felt the pain of typing with exceedingly long fingernails?!

Now, who feels better?

Photo Challenge

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have been challenged!
My sister and I have become a little obsessed with Instagram, a cool way to take and display photos from your iPhone!  (Try Webstagram on your computer if you don't have an iPhone)
One of the ladies we both happen to follow put this challenge up today!  We decided to accept!

What a fun way to challenge ourselves and see if we can't find a new way of looking at the world!

At Rest

There is something about snow falling that makes me want to sit on the couch with a fire going, a hot cup of coffee on the table beside me, and a good book in my hands.

It makes the house feel at peace ... at rest.


A New Beginning

"Trust yourself.
Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life.
Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement."
