Let me start off by saying Merry Xmas and Happy New Year. It seems like things haven gotten off to a rocky start. From Thanksgiving on, it has not been pretty. My family and I suffered a death in the family. We are still reeling from that one. Back at home from the funeral(we were gone 8...
The black panther, cougar, catamount is "officially extinct" in New England. Although in a group of 20 Vermonters, 5 have had a friend see one, and one will have seen one personally.
Last winter, DH and I hiked up around the stone cliffs behind our house. We saw deer trails, squirrel tracks...
Merry Christmas everyone!
I had to stop and take a moment to reflect on the blessings we have recently received and just wanted to share them with you all, since you were instrumental (by way of advice and listening ears) in some of this.
Here's a rundown of the Christmas blessings we have...
Today I am thankful for the laundry in the basement; it means I
have clothes to wear. I'm thankful for the stacks of paper on my office floor;
it means I have a job. I'm thankful for the dishes in the sink waiting to be
washed; it means I have food. I'm thankful for a dirty house to clean; it...
I have to remind myself how lucky I am. Getting discouraged because my debt is not disappearing at the speed in which I would like is doing me no good. I am one of the lucky ones.
- I make all payments on time and add a little to each.
- I have plenty of food in the house.
- My kids and dh...
I don't know if any of you remember but I've been a member here for a couple years or so, and I've posted in the past about seeing a pulmonologist (lung specialist) for wheezing, breathing trouble, and coughing. Well, I've actually seen 2 different pulmonologists in nearby...
My motto for 2009 is Attitude of Gratitude. I am grateful for every blessing I have. And when I start counting them, I can't stop! When I put myself in an attitude of gratitude, I realize that my blessings are infinite. I see everything as a blessing. My couch, which I sit on in the...
A few small blessings have really helped us to make ends meet this month:
We were on our last jar of jelly & my mom stopped by & gave us a jelly gift set that she recieved for Christmas & since my dad can't have sugar, she gave it to us.
I went through a bunch of shampoo & body wash samples &...
People in my real life wont appreciate this the way you all would :)
My hubbies job situation brings many free blessings of food.
Sometimes the items are in bulk but there are also items we get each and every week for free.
Isnt it cool how the little things really do bless us?:cheergrl:
I think this is what I'm giving my co-workers this year... I always like to make something quick & easy to pass out to about 12 people at work.

It's interesting to see everyone saying "count your blessings", Be happy with what you have, "look around to see what you already have".....
I just don't know how it works (for me too) that we can live in the richest countries in the world, have more than almost anyone else in the world and yet...
So small, I am, in meadows 'neath the sky
I feel I could sail, on wings of a butterfly.
I almost can vision, myself climbing air,
I almost can feel it, while God takes me there.
A natural high, and a spiritual gift,
Is what I receive, when I'm on this lift.
To be one with...
This week I've had a few wonderful surprises from friends.
The other day a man from our church stopped by and left us two boxes of chocolate bars :toothy: He works for the Cadbury company and I think these boxes were damaged. Dd was a little sad because I couldn't afford to make chocolates...
I just don't know what to say....everytime I turn around I am being given something wonderful.....
Today the children played at our Seniors Christmas luncheon, they played solo, duets, trios and then my eldest Dd playe carols on the piano while the seniors sang. Our children entertain at our...
I don't know if you do this but I just want to share something I have done off and on through the years.
I keep a seperate journal and I draw a line down the page.
On one side I write all the ways I have been blessed and on the other side I write ways I have blessed others.
Right now I have...

Praise God for them one and all.

Happiness, joy, peace and love.
