Let's Get Motivated!

Motivational post, at your service.

How often do you think in terms of shoulda, woulda, couldas? I shoulda done that. I woulda made a different choice if I'd only known. I coulda done better.



Don't measure your life in regrets; measure it in thankfuls, and start today. Link up with us this and every weekend with your own list of thankfuls, then visit the other participants' posts and give them a comment. Thanks for listening to my Ted Talk....

Daisies Are Summer

Hello, weekend! Always a pleasure to see you.

Hello to you, too! It is a privilege to have you visit this little post, and I hope it leads you to reflect on your week and the things that make you thankful, be they big or small. Dash off a list, or spend some time contemplating it, but DO make a point to join us this weekend and link up a Ten Things of Thankful post with us! It can really be cathartic.

The link is live until Monday night!

Halfway? No Way!

2021 is halfway over. Can you believe it?! Didn't it just start? Didn't we just have that frigid weather when pipes froze and power went out and there was all that snow?

It seems like yesterday, and then again, it seems like a lifetime ago.

Don't let time pass by so quickly without remembering your thankfuls! It's good practice, especially since Thanksgiving, that biggest celebration of thankfuls, is less than five months away....

Write YOUR Ten Things of Thankful post and link it up with us. We are here every week, come rain or come shine (or come snow and ice and frozen pipes).

Find The Light

This past week has been rough.

Heat and humidity plus thunderstorms. Upstairs air conditioning unit not working. Transitioning of toddlers into my preschool class. A heartbreaking memorial service for a young woman I've known since she was a child. Continued residual effects from eating something I'm allergic to. Ants in the kitchen. A mouse in my car. 

I woke up from a bad dream a few nights ago and decided I needed to write an ANTI Ten Things of Thankful and even made some groggy notes on my phone.

But I didn't write that post.

The pastor at the memorial service said one thing that made me stop feeling sorry for myself:

Bathe the darkness with light.

Look at your week. Look hard. Find the light.

Link up with us this 4th of July weekend (and every weekend - we will always welcome you).

ps Happy Birthday, America!

pss Happy Birthday, Canada (can't leave you out)!

pss if you know how to get a mouse to move out of a car hit me up....

Who, What, When, Where, Why Of Thankfuls

So, I'm sitting in my chair in my bedroom on the second floor of my house (this is important), and I feel something tickly on my arm. I looked down to find a tiny ant running crazily over my arm. I squished it, smelled it (this is important, too), and EWWWW, it had the sickly sweet smell of a sugar ant, which you usually find on the FIRST floor of the house in the KITCHEN. A few hours later, there were MORE ants, at least half a dozen, bopping around on the oriental rug in my room (important, too - think how busy the pattern is on an oriental rug).

I am NOT thankful for this.

I AM thankful that my calico cat, Nora Pearl, who was irritated with me for moving her off my lap so I could write a TToT link up post, spied an ant on the rug. When I saw her locked in on something from her perch on the ottoman, it took me a few moments of staring in the same area to see what SHE was seeing, but I'm glad I figured out where she had the bead. Good eye, Nora Pearl! 

Now to figure out why the second floor, how they're getting in, and what I'm going to do about it

I could come up with about a dozen reasons NOT to be thankful about having ants in the house, but isn't it so much nicer to find the one positive thing about it? 

The mighty huntress, Nora Pearl

The Ten Things of Thankful link up is now live! Please join us! Unlike ants, we would be delighted to see you!
