For Today - Outside my window... Grey skies and I am sure more rain today! My umbrella is once again well used this year!!

I am thinking...That in a couple of months I will have a new grandbaby. I am just so excited!! Children are  so precious.

I am thankful for... All that the Lord has given me and everyday I count my blessings.The Lord has been faithful and brought me through a stormy year.

From the learning rooms... A quote I really like comes to mind: "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away."
There is a wonderful and beautiful world out there created by The Lord and we should enjoy each and every moment and create many precious and treasured memories. I am reminded of a storm and then a rainbow that appears in the sky and God's promises are brought to my mind.                                   

From the kitchen... Toast and honey and a pot of freshly brewed coffee! So good!

I am wearing... My pj's and dressing gown still!

I am creating... So many photograph albums as I work on putting my pictures in albums. This will be so much more organised than having these tucked away in drawers.Memories are meant to be shared.

I am going... To take a trip later to the stores. I am running out of so many things and wondering how did this happen??

I am reading... Still reading "Boundaries" and enjoying this book very much. Also enjoying reading"Daily Inspiration For Women." This is a 365-Day Devotional Journal by Helen Steiner Rice. So inspirational.

I am hoping... And praying that a friends IVF process will be successful. She will get her news this week. It has been a tough and emotional time for her as she has undergone all the treatment. Her setbacks have been many and I pray that this treatment will bring her a much longed for baby.

I am hearing... Very little as early morning and all is quiet!

Around the house...I can see my angel figurines. I love angels and collect Willow angels and have a vast collection of these and other angels.

 One of my favorite things...Spending time with my family. This is so very important to me.

A few plans for the rest of the week... Hmmm-catch up!! I am still trying to get up to date with snail mail and housework!! I love receiving letters in the mail and phone calls too. I just love the way it totally brightens a day!  I was so thrilled when I got a phone call from a friend in Canada on my birthday and it was so unexpected!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing... This photo taken on my birthday last Thursday while out for the day.Of course it poured with rain and here I am with a well used umbrella!!

  8. Sounds like a good way to spend a day. Boundaries is a good book. I recommend it to all my patients and I've read it several times myself. I pray you learn from it and grow closer to the Lord and to your family, friends, and others you meet along the way.
