Happy Anniversary my sweet home! 13 years ago today, I signed the papers and was given the key to you – my first new home! And so to my home I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation for: keeping me cool in the summer (your welcome for the new HVAC) and keeping me warm in the winter, dry when it rains or snows! For giving me a lovely place where I have experienced life and all its wonderful twists and turns, more joy than sorrow for 13 years and soon you will be paid off!! LOL Oh how time flies when you are having fun! In 2017 I have big plans for you home sweet home… update your look inside and out. But for today, just know how grateful and blessed I feel to have you…a home of my own!

Lord, so often times, as any other day
When we sit down to our meal and pray
We hurry along and make fast the blessing
Thanks, amen. Now please pass the dressing
We’re slaves to the olfactory overload
We must rush our prayer before the food gets cold
But Lord, I’d like to take a few minute more
To really give thanks to what I’m thankful for
For my family, my health, a nice soft bed
My friends, my freedom, a roof over my head
I’m thankful right now to be surrounded by those
Whose lives touch me more than they’ll ever possibly know
Thankful Lord, that You’ve blessed me beyond measure
Thankful that in my heart lives life’s greatest treasure
That You, dear Jesus, reside in that place
And I’m ever so grateful for Your unending grace
So please, heavenly Father, bless this food You’ve provided
And bless each and every person invited

Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!
It is Christmas Eve and for many of us the pressure of the holiday has been pushed to the limit with a few hours left today to “shop” for the perfect gift, pick up last minute groceries, or someone at the airport. It is funny, I think that one of the most amazing times of the year can bring out the best and worst in us. Today, I invite you to take 5 minutes from your crazy schedule and breathe. Breathe in the moment and let out all your anxiety. Know that all is well. Accept what is right now and not what you wished it to be or not be. By participating in this moment, right now you can move forward with deeper meaning. Worry and stress never made things better or your wishes appear faster. Your wishes never get here when stuck in worrying.
I came across an ad from a department store posted in a newspaper years ago and here I share it with you with a few of my own added. I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and many blessings to all. May we acknowledge all our blessings that are here now already in our lives big and small.
Last Minute Gifts – That Money Can’t Buy.
Keep a promise, Keep a secret
Share a dream, Share your time
Send her favorite flower or write him a letter of your love
Let someone have the last word
Give a smile, Return a smile
Laugh at his favorite story — again
Let someone in line, go in front of you
Listen to a child
Listen to an adult
Love your pet, Rescue animal from abuse and neglect
Remember those who have no one and be there for someone if only for a moment to say hello
Say something nice to someone you like
Say something nice to someone you don’t
No matter how or what you say or do sharing your love
is the finest thing we can do, always.
Merry Christmas. Sweet Dreams and Many Blessings.
