Monday Blessings

I hope you all enjoyed the thanksgiving holiday! 😊

I sure did! 😊😊

My knitting project is complete and it was a success as it was presented to a dear friend. The project was for a special organization called Birthright. They help young parents with needed items to help get them by. Any donations are appreciated. So, I have decided to make some cozy hats for the time being with more to be expected as well 😊 I am very glad I have done this for them. They do so much to help others.

Have a great day and don’t forget to keep that smile on your face. We are luckier than we think we are.

God bless.

Gratitude

Happy Thanksgiving y’all! 😊 

Today is a day that we all should rejoice what we are truly grateful for and admire what we have. It’s definitely a reminder of looking into your life at what truly matters most whether you are surrounded by family or friends or neither. What you have, it could be the person/object that someone else is praying for.

So, keep this thought for any other day, not just the holiday season. We often take everything for granted and just wishing things were different. If we take a look around, ourselves, then most likely we realize how lucky we really are.

Do you have a home for shelter every night? It may not be the greatest or possibly too small, but it works. Not everyone has that luxury.

“This is a day that the Lord has made. We shall rejoice and be glad in it.”

Love what matters. Appreciate the little things.

Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone! Don’t fret 😊 If you happen to burn the food (like I often do), it happens! It’s still edible and can still be enjoyable.

It’s all mind game 😊

5 Things

Happy Fri-Yay everyone! 😊 it’s nearing the end of another glorious week and it still amazes me how fast this year is going. Thanksgiving is in (less than) TWO weeks!!! Crazy, right?

Well, these end of weeks moments I’d like to take a moment of gratitude of what happened through the week. My series (5 things) relates to 5 things which I am thankful of for this week. I try to really think about this because we all know how life can get. We often forget what our blessings are unfortunately.

My 5 includes the following:

1. The boy. Yes, you have guessed it, I do have a boyfriend. I am so glad to have him. Even though we do drive each other crazy constantly, I’m lucky to have him. He’s helped me out so much and I will forever be grateful. I looked upon this because as a dear friend of mine is now going through a breakup of her own. It’s making me realize how great my life really is.

2. God. Once again, He has proven me that He never leaves my side. Another trying week of stresses and letdowns, I know I can always lean onto Him for comfort and guidance. He gives me the peace and strength to continue.

3. Job. Hectic moments. Hectic people. Hectoc life. But, it provides food, shelter, and other necessities to get me by.

4. Sunny days. A reminder that after all of the storms that life gives us, sunshine is just a moment away. Be positive and keep moving forward.

5. Ability to see good in everything. We all have bad days and moments, but deep inside, there’s a good person. When we focus more on the positive, our lives begin to change. One of my favorite quotes happen to be “hope for the best; prepare for the worst.” We all know that bad things happen, but that won’t stop me from believing in the best of something while being prepared by a possible betrayal.

I would love to hear what your top 5 things that you are most thankful that happened through the week. They could be from both good and bad situations since every situation can have a learning experience attached.

God bless everyone. Shine the light for all to see.
