Sunday Thoughts

We can’t do it alone. Resting in His grace today.

“But even before I was born, God chose me and called me by His marvelous name.” Galatians 1:15

Traveling

I completely forgot to post something this morning.

We are traveling back from a wonderful couples weekend in Tallahassee. I so love these people.

We also helped Carmen unload more of her apartment.

Will post more tomorrow.

Blessings.

Sunday Thoughts

Carmen and I flew home yesterday to 74 degree weather. We unpacked our bags, changed clothes, and headed to the beach.

We live about 15 minutes away so it’s not a long drive except during everyone’s spring break! It took about 40 minutes to get there but so worth it.

We ate some oysters and crab claws, and our bodies were thankful.

My mind and heart are thankful as well. I had a wonderful experience with Carmen. I love our friendship and the way it has blossomed with her aging.

Thankful to God for both of my adult children even with the trials and tribulations. They continue to make my heart happy.

“I thank God every time I remember you.” – Philippians 1:3 NIV

What are you thankful for today?

Blessings.

DC Again

Carmen and I waited in line to see an oral argument with the Supreme Court Justices. Carmen was in heaven due to being able to see and hear Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG).

Finally saw blooming cherry blossoms 🌸 outside of the Supreme Court building.

Toured the National Geographic Queens of Egypt exhibit. Women should rule the world.

Stood blocks away from the White House. Security had the square blocked off due to an outside press conference. Ugh!

Had cold water oysters (not sure what kind they were). Eh…I love my Florida oysters. These were good, but small and very briney.

End of the day and rode the MARC trains. Great way to get around especially if I don’t have to do this daily.

Today we are off to NYC. I am super excited to be there for a couple of days and to show Carmen some sites. I haven’t been here since I was seventeen.

Blessings!!

Thankful for those that love me and put up with my day to day crap. Thankful for those friends who tend to me regardless of my situation.

Thankful.

Merry Christmas Eve

This picture was from last year. Everyone was home and we were able to celebrate as a family.

Stephen’s work schedule (and now that he has moved out) it is harder to see him. When we spoke about it last night, he wasn’t sure that he would be able to come by to celebrate Christmas until New Year’s Day.

It’s hard for those who work in the holidays to be able to spend time with family and friends. I don’t normally think about those that are working when I shop or eat out until I have someone close to me that is going through it.

Holidays are not always a happy time for most. It is stressful and typically has disappointments from unmet expectations. When the kids were small, they shared the holiday with my ex husband. I really didn’t want to even have a tree up if they weren’t home but I knew that when they did get home they would want it. Being separated from loved ones over a holiday is so very difficult.

All of this to say, hug your loved ones. Enjoy the moments you are able to have with one another, and remember the greatest gift.

Blessings.

Nourish

I was nourished this weekend, surrounded by people that I love.

We got to celebrate Carmen’s college graduation. Celebrate her accomplishments of the past twenty-five years.

I am proud to be her Mom, but more proud to have her as a friend and confidant.

I am blessed to be her Mom. Grateful to be her Mom.

Blessings.

Sunday Thoughts

Today I am thankful for the gifts of friendship. Those that God has placed in my path when I needed them the most or when they needed me.

Looking back on how God has gifted me with placement of friends, I am truly amazed at His ability to weave His love into me.

Whether they needed me at the time or I needed them…I am really not sure, but God did. He placed exactly who I needed at the right time.

How has God gifted your life? Looking back on your life, can you see His path?

Blessings.
