Twos

Two eyes and two ears. One mouth gets me in trouble glad it’s not double.

Grateful for two feet to hold me up and two legs to take me places.

Two arms to hugs. Two hands to touch.

Two friends nearby as we are pricing things for sale.

Two morning glories breathtakingly different. Remind me of the two people who live in this house.

Two cats asleep on the bed.

Two minutes before I leave.

Can I find two socks?

Good Morning Sunshine

Texting my Gdaughter. Goodnight Moonpie! Now I need to find sunshine! Fill my life and it drives out darkness. Good Morning Sunshine!

Seems like the quote from Martin Luther King Jr. keeps popping up. Dark cannot drive out darkness only light can can.

Working on a gratitude list for Sunday Church service.People have been telling their story of why they go to our Church. My turn for early service.

Local sweet corn. Sunshine in a bite!

Doing for others is the best way to stop a pity party.

Getting back on track with eating. Ate what I wanted when Sunshine was here. She went to the gym on returning home. I need to practice pushing food away.

Trip to produce store. I can’t wait to eat the best of summer. Melon,grapes,fruit salad and salad creations. We are so lucky to have the variety of foods available.

Realizing I can make my own sunshine. Yes my Sunshine went away but my life is still full of brightness.

UP EARLY AND ENJOYING THE MORNING

Able to enjoy the peace of the morning as I could not fall back asleep.

My dog, Jax, being so adorable.

Not feeling rushed.

God in my life.

Being able to wake up slowly and just enjoy my coffee, the news and my Bible.

The smell of rain coming.

Feeling like Fall is near. 

My grief support group who are awesome.

Love of friends and family. 

My son. 

 

New day

Safe trip to the airport at 5 a.m. . Then nap when we returned

Started counting things we hadn’t done while Gdaughter was here but switched to things we did.

She’ll be back in October

Morning glories so beautiful I had to take a picture.

Feeling down but fighting it. Life is good!

Tired but day off.

Trying to figure out my phone. Fixed one problem will live with the other. No Dennis a hammer is not the solution.

Off to Church. Huge Rummage Sale there this weekend. Time to price.

Glad I’m not in charge of it.

Glad I’m in charge of Hymn Sing. It will be wonderful!

Word from Atlanta . She is safe!

 

START OF A NEW WEEK…..

Waking up feeling kind of down but able to pick myself up as the day went on.  Thanks God.

Paying attention at work and making less errors.

Working one a favorite coworker for a little bit. 

Calming myself down when I get agitated or nervous.

Beautiful weather as the day went on. 

My dog and cat.

My son. 

God.  

Coming home where peace is.  

A good cup of coffee.
