Just because Thanksgiving Day has passed, there’s no reason to stop being grateful……..

Something that has brought a positive change in my life recently has been the practice of turning negative statements around and finding something in the circumstance for which to be grateful.

“I am thankful for my 11 year old – PRE -teen-ager who complained about doing dishes BEFORE he left to go with his dad, because that means he is at home, not out on the streets somewhere.

“I am thankful for the taxes that I pay, because it means that I’m employed. “I am thankful for the mess I have to clean up at my house, because it means I’m more fortunate than thousands of people around the world. I have a home.

“I am thankful for the clothes that fit a little too snugly, because it means I have plenty to eat. “I’m thankful for my shadow that watches me work, because it means I’m outside in the sunshine. “I am thankful for my mother’s house SMELLING HORRIBLE of cooking gizzards..chitlings etc… because that means that she is STILL ALIVE to drive me insane of eating these nasty things and making my clothes stink” LOL

“I’m thankful for my oldest son who is in college being moody over the last few weeks but he makes me smile everytime he CHOOSES to text and call me. Also for my daughter being even MORE moodier but smiles when she emails me.

“I’m thankful for all the complaining about government and politics, because it reminds me I live in a country that allows me freedom of speech. “I’m thankful for the parking spot I found all the way at the end of the lot, because it means I have the strength and ability to walk the distance.

“I’m thankful for my heating bill, because it means I am warm. “I’m thankful for the lady behind me in church who sings off-key, because it means I am blessed with the gift of hearing. “I’m thankful for the pile of laundry that reminds me that I — and my family — have plenty of clothes to wear.

“I’m thankful for weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day, because it means I’m capable of working hard and making a contribution to the lives of others. “I’m thankful each day when the alarm goes off, and I hear it, because it means I’m still alive. There is still time to serve God and others. There are still opportunities to make a difference.

“Each day is a gift. Each burden holds a blessing, and every moment of life offers an opportunity that will come only once in a lifetime.

“I am thankful — just because — I am.”

Things That Are Hot…..

My new bag!!! LOL

My girl – pal advised me that my bag was as hot as she was…. and my new hair style
image

I may just have to agree with her……my new bag and style via fashion is a little HOTTTTT!

A BRAND NEW BAG every three months is a nice new deal that I made with myself….Every 3 months is not a long time for me due to the fact that I already have OVER  __blank______blank_________ $#@!$&*^%$#!@ Number of bags/ purses and actually a few other things that I need to get delivered from!

Uggh…. my son of course said I should get one every month and of course it is because he wants to attend the shopping mall and obtain something for HIMSELF once a month as well!

Inspiration

From Positive Thinking 2 Positive Living –


Positive Thinking

Understanding that everything is perfect, because it serves and helps me to walk through life with care and perseverance, full of trust and humor, calmly doing what has to be done, gratefully realizing the truth revealing itself behind  appearance, and living securely in  the fullness of being.

Positive Feeling
Accepting others openly and harmoniously the way they are, learning that I cannot change people but I can pray for them and wait for the answer from Christ, confidently relying on my feelings and feeling worthy to live in abundance, contemplating life without judging and lovingly letting happen what  needs to happen.

Positive Wanting
Wanting to learn and wanting to understand, excusing and forgiving, wanting the right thing, listening to what life wants, relinquishing my own wants for God’s desires for my life.

Positive Talking
Learning to express myself clearly, learning to be silent and to listen without giving uninvited advice, being honest in word and action and giving gifts of words, bestowing courage and comfort to others and myself, using words only to help, to thank and to bless.

Positive Acting
Acting with circumspection and forbearance, being helpful, kind and constructive, remaining considerate and persevering,independent from the expectations of others, learning to give and to take and knowing to do the right thing  at the right moment through inner guidance.

Positive Retreating
Retreating regularly into silence, making time for prayer and meditation, surrendering to truth and reality in harmony, and feeling safe and sound in it.

Positive Living
Honoring the spiritual laws of Christ, walking through life carefree and calmly, knowing that all is really not equal but learning that  nurturing harmonious relationships and seeing the beauty of all things is important,  loving to live, but being ready to leave this life at any time, gratefully and  consciously fulfilling  God’s Plans every moment of our lives.

Getting A Laugh Before Bedtime!!!


Trying these at home does not benefit certain people so they should invest in a gym membership like me! LOL

I mean trust me….. I have also tried to work out at home and save the money or just do things at home because I can be more comfortable but losing weight should not be comfortable…. RIGHT??

Where was she trying to get to so fast? LOL

This is a new way to do the ELECTRIC SLIDE I guess! LOL

Am I my brother’s keeper? LOL
