Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi friends, just wanted to pop in and wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends. This year I am having my mom here for Thanksgiving. We have a lot to be thankful for even though Dad will be missed tremendously. May you all remember all the things that God has blessed you with and continue to thanks him daily for all your blessings.

Didn't start yet

Still waiting to pull out my Christmas decorations, but was wondering how many of you decorate your bedrooms for Christmas? I have in the past and just wasn't sure about doing it this year. Would love to see photos too if you do decorate.
Have a great weekend friends!

Happy Birthday!

Happy 10th Birthday to my baby girl, Isabella Rose! Seems like just yesterday that we brought you home. Mommy and Daddy love you very much. And so does your big brother Luke at least "sometimes."

Hugs and smooches,

Still misty...

I seem to have been in the "fog" as of late and in "sour" mood. This time of the year is always hard for me but especially harder this year with my Dad's passing in July. Now I know in my heart that he would not like to see me wallowing in self-pity about somethng I had no control over, so it is time to get out of this "stinkin' thinkin' mood and start living again. This is not to say that I won't have to pick myself up time and time again but NOW is the time!
Thank you Linda from Behind my Red door for lettiing me share this....

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: "I am blind, please help." There were only a few coins in the hat.

A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words. Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, "Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?"

The man said, "I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way. "I wrote: 'Today is a beautiful day; but I cannot see it.'"

Both signs told people that the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign reminded people how fortunate they were to have their sight. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?

Moral of the Story:
Be thankful for what you have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively. When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile. Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear.

It's a beautiful thing to see a person smiling.
But even more beautiful is knowing that you are the reason for the smile!

Faith is not about everything turning out OK; Faith is about being OK no matter how things turn out.

My hope is that I remember God is in control and all I need to do is trust in him.
Hugs my friends,

Well it's such a beautiful day here that I thought I'd wash some windows in the kitchen and go from there. Now that the kitchen in complete disarray it's time to start decluttering. I took down all the pumpkin goodies and am now just dusting and rearranging things to make way for Christmas decor. However, hubby and the kiddos are not ready for that decor yet so I am just rearranging some everyday prims. I really have way to much stuff and really need to weed out to just favorites or at least pack it away in totes for a rainy day. I am always amazed at how much 'stuff' I have and yet I feel the NEED for more. WHAT IS UP WITH THAT???? Do any of you get like that? Well, I must get back to my mess and get it somewhat put back together before hubby comes home from work.
Have a great weekend friends!
Buggy hugs, ♥T
