Sweet Birthday

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Today is my husband's birthday and I was able to surprise him with some new duds and a serenade of my various happy birthday tunes. It also makes that I am halfway through this busy December, nine days until Christmas-Lordy! emoticon

I am in semi stress mode, having missed some school deadlines and dealing with this darn Crohn's disease that decided to rear its ugly head. It has been dormant for some years now and I having some difficulty swallowing and such. I pray that it isn't anything serious for the devil is busy trying to destroy the Saints. I am staying in prayer mode, I recognize acts of the demonic one and I keep Christ first in my thoughts, words and deeds!

Is it really nine days until Christmas...ho ho ho! emoticon emoticon emoticon

The last month of 2014. I am going to make a positive impact on my life and make it great. 24 days until the birth of Christ, 16 days to my sweet Lou's birthday, 23 days until I get another vacation. Life is what you make of it, I am going to go for it.

Small Business Saturday

Saturday, November 29, 2014

I have to think like a business woman if I want to create another avenue of income, if I want to retire comfortably, if I want to mentor other women to be successful, if I want the golden brass ring, pie in the sky with a cherry on top.

One thing that procrastination brings on is chaos. Fear of success, fear of failure, lack of doing. Getting down to business, I need to take the bull by the horns, address my fears and move forward. I can succeed, I can be content in my own simple life, I can create a happy oasis, a peaceful home, be happy with my husband which I truly am and be a blessing to others.

I want so much out of life, I am slow at getting started and I have to turn things around, for my own mental health betterment and for a positive, productive change.

Blessed Thanksgiving

Friday, November 28, 2014

I had a quiet, serene Thanksgiving yesterday. I thanked God for His abundant blessings He has bestowed on my life. I am grateful for my girl Sharee who invited me to get a plate at her house since I did not cook. She fed me so well, gave me food to give to Lou who had to work yesterday. I am grateful for my job that allowed me to shop a little and replace my lost Fitbit. I didn't realize how dependent I am on that little device to get my steps in. I am so in love with my husband who loves me unconditionally, who puts up with my messes, my sometimes manic behavior, my mood swings. My husband who sees the best in me, allows me my space, puts his arms around me and tells me I am beautiful, even when I am having a fat moment. I married Louis five months ago today and I fall in love with him more and more each passing day. emoticon emoticon

I have a lot of work cut out for me since my gastro Dr. doesn't feel that I should get the gastric sleeve. I am glad I found out before I started the pre-op stuff in greater detail. I guess I was looking for a quick and easy solution, but now realize it is going to take good old fashion sweat and portion control. I did it before, I will do it again. I will succeed, I can do all things thru Christ who gives me strength! emoticon emoticon I have my work cut out for me, but this Thanksgiving I realize who truly blessed I am.

November to Remember

Sunday, November 23, 2014

As I approach the last week in November, I celebrate five years here in Kansas City area. I found out last week I was accepted to a Woman's Veteran entrepreneur conference to be held in New Orleans in January. I reapplied for a per diem position with my employer again and I feel like I have to liberate myself and take the bull by the horns-harder, faster, more determined and to keep pushing myself.

I buried my Mom five years ago on November 2, 2009. I didn't want to have a pity party, eat myself into oblivion and just plan curl up and not function. I am learning still how to deal with my grief, call it what it is and move on. I acknowledge it, smile through the memories and make new memories with my hubby for a brighter and better future.

I do not want it to be business as usual. I need to make a difference and a change in my life. I am a diamond in the rough and I want my shine to sparkle! emoticon emoticon
