December Is Waiting To Enter

It is waiting to makes it's entrance.

Ready or not all the hustle and bustle
is knocking on the door.
Am I ready?  Haha! no but I had
better get with it.

I told my daughter, I am just not
going to decorate this year.
She laughed!

She said,
"Mom you say that every year, and guess what?
You always decorate."

So she was really saying,
Stop, complaining and do what you always do. . 

Decorate for Christmas. . .
So it all begins. . Come back and 
watch the Christmas decorating  of my home.

It Is Good To Be Thankful

It is a common thing 
that we express what we are
for at this time leading to

I believe it is good to express my
All the Time.

No matter where my journey in life takes us
it is good to express my 
We all have our highs and our lows
Good times and difficult times.

As my Auntie would say,
"It is just one thing after another."

I have had my share of "lows".
Difficult times, and struggles.

I do believe my good days have 
out numbered my difficult days.

It is true. . . 
"Count your many blessings
name them one by one,
and it will surprise you
what the Lord has done!"

There is something about 
writing and naming my blessings
One by One
that makes me feel more positive
and happy about life.
It seems my blessings increase
One by One.

For me I write in my
Gratitude Journal
I reflect on my day, and I
write the things I am most 
for on that particular day.

I am always amazed at what 
marvelous things I am
Blessed  with.

November Ramblings

It is a beautiful chilly November day
where I live. And I like it!
November is one of my favorite months.

I have many special reasons why I love this month.  
My first child Mathew was born in November.
The birth of a child you never forget.
My second grandson Andrew is also a
November baby.  I also have other reason to
Love November.

November is a time for 
Families to gather together.
Children, Parents, Grandparents
Aunts, Uncles, Cousins.
We all gather as families and friends
to begin the biggest
celebration of all

Begins the Christmas Season for me.
But, first I like Thanksgiving,
I don't want to rush it out of the way
I like to savor the season of giving 

I believe that everything is centered around being Together.
And that Family is everything.  
With Friendship closely linked.



No matter the circumstances of our life,
we are still part of a family.
This month and every month I give thanks for
the Blessings of Family, Friends, Gathering.
I am thankful for November. . .
It reminds me of the precious gift I have
