~Life Made Easier~

This banner is just a wonderful reminder to me to be THANKFUL everyday. As my DEAR brother, Pat, reminded me there are so many things going on in our world right now. However, there are many things that I am sure of that haven't changed:
1) That I have a family who LOVES each other very much.
2) Today I have HEALTHY kids.
3) I have a warm house on these chilly November days.
4) I wake up everyday to my beautiful son greeting me with a GOOD MORNING KISS.
5) I have a remarkably COOL husband who shows he LOVES me everyday.
6) GOD loves me more than I can ever imagine.
Life for me is truly AWESOME!!!
This is my ipod and speakers. When I am done getting ready in the morning I come downstairs to the kitchen and my music is WAITING for me. I start my day off with a cup of coffee(which Bill makes for me everyday before he leaves for work) and music. I love listening to Hillsong, Antioch Church and Kim Walker. Hard to have a bad day after listening to them. Seriously, try it....

Last but not mixer. One of my conveniences that I have removed from the pantry and plopped on my counter. Why you ask (OK, even if you didn't ask I'm going to tell you) reminds me to make delicious surprises for my family. They LOVE all the cookies, cakes & cupcakes that start in this mixer. It reminds me that cooking from scratch reaches their PRECIOUS souls. It makes them happy....which in turn makes me happy!


Bill Deitch said...

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, which most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, "Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented, and fabulous?"
Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that
other people won't feel insecure around you.

We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And, as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give
other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
