Today I reached the kitchen door, and what a funny sight met my eyes! Someone must have spilled something delicious down the front of the stove and didn’t clean it up, so Lilly decided to help herself! She went at it with gusto. Do you see her tail? Just barely? That’s because she wags it… Read More Day 198- Thankful for funny animal antics (photos)
I had never thought about how not everyone perceives that they are loved in the same ways until I heard about a book called “The 5 Love Languages”, by Gary Chapman. It was very interesting to realize that one person may be doing their best to show love to another, but the other doesn’t perceive… Read More Day 184- Thankful for hugs and kisses
Thursday, my teens started letting me know that we were running out of food. So Friday, around 7:30 a.m., the Lord reminded me that I needed to go grocery shopping. My son had offered to go with me on Saturday morning, but there was no point in both of us going out, and I wanted… Read More Day 156- Thankful for toilet paper 🙂 (God provides!)
Today I’m having a tired day. I slept in till 9:30, had a little breakfast, administered a physical science test to my daughter, then took pictures of the test and texted them to the school for grading. Later, I quizzed her in another subject. I also spoke with the teleworking, appointment-making person (obviously not her… Read More Day 154- Thankful for family and helpful teleworkers
A few days ago I ran a few errands that were necessary, like picking up my daughter’s meds at the pharmacy and buying a few groceries. I left the car running when I went into the grocery store, and when I came back out, I got in and sat down in the driver’s seat. My… Read More Day 151- Thankful for routine and for new discoveries
Friday I found out that I have swimmers ear; who knew? The doctor was a little puzzled (yes, I was actually seen in clinic!) because this is not the usual season for swimmers ear, and also, there was no apparent oozing that should accompany the condition. But, if you’ve been following me for a while,… Read More Day 150- Thankful for medical workers, humorous moments 🙂 , and order
So there I was in the kitchen, cooking a pancake on the top of the stove, when the text came through. I walked the 3 feet to my phone and checked the text. It required a response. I sat down to take care of it (in hindsight, not a good idea). As I carried on… Read More Day 118 – Thankful for my Knight in Shining Armor and…
One of the things that I’ve liked about my husband from the beginning has been his sense of humor. He comes up with these one-liners that make me laugh because they are so unexpected. Sometimes I try to remember the funny things he says so I can tell a friend, but I should have written… Read More Day 105 – Thankful for my husband’s sense of humor
If you’re one of those people who just hates it when someone says, “At least it’s not worse,” I apologize. But in my own life, there are days where I’m struggling, and the thankfulness airplane just can’t seem to make it off the ground. That’s when I resort to this saying for myself. Last night… Read More Day 95 – Thankful things aren’t worse than they are
When my granddaughter was here last weekend, we played hide and seek. She is 5 and little. I’m, um, not 5 and big. 😁 My daughter-in-love was helping her hide, but with all my years of experience, I still managed to find her every time. At one point I hid by the side of my… Read More Day 87 – Lessons from Hide and seek – God wants us to find Him!!
A few days ago one of my older daughters brought her daughter over for two nights of “sleepovers”. My granddaughter is 5 years old and still requires LOTS of attention, but she loves to laugh and is fun to be around! A couple of times this weekend, we both had each other almost doubled over… Read More Day 82 – Thankful that my children and grandchildren make me laugh
Three days ago my husband made a bonfire, since the weather was warm enough, and we have some wood that really needs to be burned. We spent a little time together just sitting by the fire, enjoying the time together. After awhile, he decided that it was time to let the fire just burn down,… Read More Days 74 – Thankful for humor
Do you ever wake up in the morning with every hair perfectly in place? No? Neither do I! 😁 Or maybe you are one of those who are blessed to wake up with gorgeous hair. This morning I woke up and was a bit startled when I looked in the mirror! One side of my… Read More Day 44 – Thankful for curling irons, hairbrushes, and hair spray
When I was a teenager, part of what we were expected to do to finish high school was to complete driver’s education. Somehow I passed with an A even though my parents only took me out one time each to practice. To their credit, they didn’t have to do so in those days. Also, when… Read More Day 11 – Ability to Drive
Sometimes situations in life that are stressful end up having funny endings. Yesterday was one of those times for me. I went to the grocery store with a craving for double-chocolate muffins, which Udi’s brand makes a delicious gluten-free option! At the store I found some double-chocolate gluten-free cookies that were cheaper, so I got… Read More Funny things in life
It was another one of those days… …you know, where you do a bunch of dumb stuff? I mean, tell me; how many times a day is normal to send a text to the wrong person? And when you go to the bank, cash a check, and take the money to a business to pay… Read More Laugh Out Loud! Seriously!
