Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 26

I think this is true. Today I had the opportunity to give... okay. It was only a listening ear and advice. I listened to the Spirit. I listened to my heart. I listened to the person who truly was searching for purpose and meaning. I am grateful for the Lord's inspiration in my life. I… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 26

Working to Keep My Head Above Water

My life is a bit out of control.  I am rarely home, and I am struggling to keep my plant-based diet a healthy plant-based diet.  All too often, it takes a lot of prep work (time), and eating time to make a plant-based diet a success. Not only that, most of the people living in… Continue reading Working to Keep My Head Above Water

Developing and Attitude of Gratitude – Day 25

Today has been a bit of an usual day.  It started with aches and pains that made it hard to feel motivated to get out of bed.  I eventually got the energy to power through the discomfort and grabbed clean underclothing and headed to the shower.  One problem.  They were NOT clean, those pesky underclothing.… Continue reading Developing and Attitude of Gratitude – Day 25

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 23 and 24

It's been a couple long days and I have not been able to get to my computer to recognize my grateful things. I decided that it would be a good thing to thank the people who have changed me for good in many positive ways. First, I am thankful for my husband.  He was gone… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 23 and 24

Gah! The Week has Been TOO Long

It's beginning to look like the Christmas season... Well... concert season.  This has been my view every evening this week and it will extend into next week. The week started with the Talmage Middle School Choir concert.  The next day was the High School Choir concert.  They did a fun set in Spanish with a… Continue reading Gah!

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 22

Today I worked at being present by looking for the little things to be thankful for. Today I was grateful for tea. I am grateful tomato soup, after a long day, to warm me up. I am grateful for the chance to run home for a few minutes this afternoon, and that I didn't have… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 22

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 21

Today was an other long day... lessons, school, rehearsals, and a band concert.  Still... being a long day didn't mean there weren't little miracles here and there. Today I am grateful that when I came home there were a few Christmas decorations up, thanks to my oldest daughter making time to hang them. I am… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 21

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 19 and Day 20

It's been some cray days.  Concerts both nights, in addition to teaching and school... and the week has only started. Yesterday I was grateful for the heat pad in my bed.  My husband was gone and I had nothing to bounce my heat off of. I was grateful for the scriptures I read, they brought… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 19 and Day 20

Snap! It’s December!

It hasn't been that long since I posted about the family.  It has been a crazy busy week, and it won't be the busiest week we have. Kimber, Ray and the kids were able to find time to take in the lights.  They went down to Corvallis to see the lights and to see the… Continue reading Snap! It’s December!
