July 8th

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

It's been a busy past few weeks and I'm hoping that the next few weeks slow down a bit!

Shy and Kyle are all moved into their new place. They just have a few straggler bits to move then clean up of the condo in preparation for their renter. Their new place is coming along. They will have new carpet installed in the Master bedroom on Thursday and the painting is going well.
They are beginning to feel the excitement once again now that their chore list is becoming more manageable.

I went with Kaeli to her medical procedure yesterday at the hospital and now we wait for the results. So grateful that I was able to go with her.

My Thank yous:
1. Thank you that all the moving is complete for the kids and that they are no longer feeling so overwhelmed. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Thank you that the wedding plans are coming along and guests are making their bookings. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Thank you that I was able to go with Kaeli yesterday. Now we trust that the results will come quickly and they will be good. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Thank you that Garry was able to make a start on pressure washing the back deck in preparation for re staining it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Thank you that my garden is doing so well. I'm looking forward to fresh potatoes and onions. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you that our weather although it's been rainy, we have not had the severity that many areas of the country have had. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Thank you that my brother and SIL are coming for a visit this weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Thank you for the blessing of the flexibility in my work schedule to allow me to be with my family as needed. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Thank you helping me to stay on track with my nutrition and water consumption. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Thank you for the blessing of this new day of life and all that it has in store for me today. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a blessed and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    Took my niece to the airport this afternoon, she has a 3 hr. layover in Chicago and then on to Birmingham, AL. We have had a wonderful time of visiting the last two weeks. Now I need to try and get back into a good routine for the rest of the summer. There was lots of snacking going on and no exercising during those two weeks. Margaret and i will be able to resume our walking once again. This Thursday is the first free concert of the summer and we are looking forward to that and it looks like we are going to have a nice evening for it.

Glad the kids are more or less moved in, may they enjoy many blessings in their new home. That will be so nice when you can begin to harvest fresh produce from your garden. Have a good rest of the week.

Thursday Clenton will have his CT scan on his chest, his doctor wants to check up on a small spot she saw last yr. We have been doing better with controlling his blood sugars.

Hugs,
Shirl

Happy Hump Day

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

This week has been going by quickly. It's already Hump Day (mid work week). For me it seems to go by even faster with only working Monday thru Thursday for the summer months.

It's looking pretty stormy outdoors this morning. The humidity is high as is the temperature in the house. Sleeping last night was a challenge. I'm thinking that we are going to be in for a good ole storm today.

My Blessings:
1. Thank you for the kind words that others leave on my blogs. They are such an encouragement. I feel very humbled that others find encouragement from me recording my blessings. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Thank you that I managed to get some sleep last night with all the heat that stored up in the house. The fans were having a hard time cooling things down. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Lord, your word says to "ask and ye shall receive"...well this morning I'm asking for energy to get me through the work day and I'm thanking you for answered prayer. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Thank you for the email from our major vendor yesterday that leaves me very encouraged about the changes they are making to their website. Such a blessing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Thank you for the blessing of hearing as I listen to all the little birds announcing a new day to the world this morning. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you for hearing from an old friend and hearing that she is doing well. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Thank you for Garry having the time yesterday to get all the old baseboards removed in preparation for the painting and renovation work. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Thank you for the fresh veggies that I have to take with me to work for snack. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Thank you for my job that enables me to have access to such great reading material. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Thank you for the blessing of this new day and all the blessings that are in store for me today. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful Wednesday,
Hugs,
Wanda

Still counting my blessings!

Even though it's been less consistent with my blogging, I have still been counting my blessings! It does feel better when I write them down though...they stare you in the face and you do appreciate them more.

1. Thank you for the blessing of this past weekend with family. We are so blessed to have our girls living so close. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Thank you for the blessing of the rain and sunshine. Natures' way of tending to my garden. I might plant the seeds, but nature does the rest. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Thank you for the sale of Sylvain's condo and that they have been able to move ahead with the purchase of their home also. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Thank you for the blessing of the gift of sight which enables me to appreciate all the beauty that surrounds me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Thank you for my job that provides me with the money that I need to pay our bills and purchase the necessities of life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you for the blessing of seeing a former co-worker yesterday and seeing how well she is doing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Thank you that Garry's re-modeled office is finished so that he can once again tend to his job with the use of his phone and computer. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Thank you for the gifts of friendship that enrich my life in so many ways. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Thank you for making it possible to complete some of the projects that we have been working on in the renovation department. It will be so nice to have them all finished. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    good morning,
yours is the blog just after mine today, so i thought i would stop and offer a 'hug' message to a fellow sparker.

after reading your first 'blessing' and seeing the 'thank you. thank you. thank you.' i realized that i used to follow your blog.. to learn -- with each of your posts i would get an email notification... i chose this because i thought the way you were grateful and thankful, even for some of the difficult things were a form of wisdom that i had the desire to learn.

So it pleases me greatly that you are the post after mine and there is much joy in being able to be reacquainted with your gratitude.
Thank you so much for sharing as you have over the years.
Today you are one of my blessings.
Thank you for being on Spark.
All the very best to you.
-Toot

Heigh Ho Heigh Ho...it's off to work I go.

Monday, June 16, 2014

How come my weekends seem to go by so fast while the work week takes so long! I had a great weekend though. We celebrated Garry as the wonderful father and husband that he is and managed to also get some outdoor projects completed.

Garry, bless his heart was able to get the front deck all sealed...it's only taken us 2 years! Now it's done and it's good to go for several years. He made a start on sealing the new privacy fence, but that will be a job that gets completed over the next week or so as he has time. I have a picture to share, but still have to load it into the computer as it is only on my phone at the moment.

My Blessings and Thank yous:
1. Thank you for the blessings of our children and that each of them made their Dad feel loved and special yesterday on Father's Day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Thank you for the blessing of Garry in my life and all the hard work he does to support his family. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Thank you for the great text messaging that we had with our granddaughter over the weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Thank you for the healing that has taken place in my SIL. She has been given the all clear to return to work. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Thank you for the new work that has been supplied to my eldest brother. Even though it means he works away from home for 3 weeks and is home for 1 week, he is happy with his new job. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you that we have been able to hire someone to come in and paint the entire interior of our house at a reasonable price. Thank you, thank you, thank you. So looking forward to getting it done.
7. Thank you that Sylvain was able to get his condo sold quickly and he is now able to move forward with the new place. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Thank you that my garden is producing. My potatoes are all up as out of all the onions that I planted it only appears that two have not come up. I have 4 little tomatoes on my one tomato plant and looking forward to more. The flower seeds that have been planted are beginning to pop up ( at least I hope that's what is showing and not just weeds *grin*) Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Thank you that the comfrey root tea seems to working well at reducing the swelling in my knee. So many natural ways of helping my body to heal rather than prescriptions. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Thank you for the blessing of this day and all that it has in store for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Hugs,
Wanda
