Time Flying By

Wow!  Here it is almost Thanksgiving Day!  I am looking forward to spending time with my sister.  I will be going early--maybe even tomorrow--to help with the cooking.  It will be so much fun cooking together!  Then on Thursday the rest of the 'gang' will be coming--not yet sure who all that includes!    
Today I went to church.  It was Youth Sunday.  The speaker talked about loving Jesus supremely--going back to our 'first love'.  How HE wants us to love Him more than we love to eat or play or whatever we 'love' doing.  His message was very convicting!  
This afternoon I have been going through all my art 'stuff''--trying to get it organized.  One of my daughters came in right in the middle of a huge mess on the kitchen floor.  She said," "WHAT IS ALL THAT "!!!!???   I just kept right on and quietly replied,
'junk'.   She said no more!!   :)     I also painted  (just a little bit) and I glued some quotes in one of my art journals.
  I have still not been able to get the birthday pictures on my blog.  Hopefully, my sister and I can figure out how to do it this week!

What Happened To This Week???

Wow, what a busy week!  The birthday party was wonderful!  Can you imagine being 5 yrs. old ?  Excitement filled every room.  Barbie dolls, American Girl doll and several outfits--even a Go-Go Dog!  What fun!  Both sets of grandparents doting on her, plus brother, cousins and lots of aunts and uncles!!
Actually. I had wanted to post some pictures but I cannot get the 'system' figured out!!  However, I do plan to figure it out!!  It will just take me a little longer than it would my children.....but stay posted to see a beautiful little 5 yr. old enjoying her BIG day!!
On Tuesday, we went to Atlanta to a Seize The Day motivational seminar!   That was very inspiring!  Les Brown, John Maxwell, Terry Bradshaw, Sarah Palin, Laura Bush were some of the speakers!  I came home ready to tackle the world!  And, it is a good thing I did because life hit me smack in the face the very next day--UMMPH!     You would think that I would be very resilient by now--40 yrs. of marriage and 6 children plus 2 grands!  I guess some people just don't learn!  WELL, that was this past week.  Tomorrow is going to be a spectacular day!  I have my Breakfast of Champions conference call in the morning and after that I will head to Athens for a few days. So, it will be the latter part of the week until I can write again (hopefully, with some pictures).  One of the points that really stood out to me from the seminar was this:  "Never let someone's opinion of you determine your reality".          

Let's keep our energy up--never know when we might need it--in a hurry!!

Back Home in Georgia

Could I please go back to Indiana????   There I could really SEE things.  Oh, I can SEE things alright here.  I can see the garbage that needs to be taken to the recycle center.  I can see the clothes that need washing.  I can see the floors that need mopping.  I can see the leaves that need raking. Talk about needing ENERGY!!!!       Come to think of it--ALL of those things had to be done at my daughter's house.   SO----what is the difference?     Hmmm!  Perhaps it is because it was not my RESPONSIBILITY  there,  but here is a different story!!   Here I have 2 dogs needing my attention and a little bunny that needs attention.  Of course, my daughter and son-in-law had a miniature poodle,  another dog with 6 newborn pups,  another Golden Retriever, plus a cat!  And in the barn they had 4 bunnies and 1 of those weighed 20 lbs!!!!  (His name was King Tut!)  However, I did not feed a single one of them while I was there.  I just played with them!  I do not play with my dogs (I never asked for a single one of them!!!).  I  CANNOT play with them, I am so MAD at them.  I have huge holes in my garden beds, more holes all over our yard--even in our dirt driveway.
Well, I am not thinking about all that any more tonight.  "After all, tomorrow is another day".  Tonight, I will think about my grandaughter.  Tomorrow is her birthday!  5 years old--I can hardly believe that much time has passed.  We are having her party at our house.  It is always so much fun.  She is so cute opening up her gifts.  She wants a 'Barbie' birthday party.  Her mom always finds the cutest things for her party. Have you seen all the new Barbie movies?  You should--they are really good.  I love watching them with my grandaughter---my grandson does not care for them,however!! I don't think that I have actually seen them ALL, but the ones that I have seen are very good!   We like to do art journals together--but they do not want me to give any suggestions on how to do theirs!  One day soon I will post some pictures of our journals.   Perhaps the latter part of next week will be a good time to do that. 
       One of my daughters is having 2 friends over for the night.  The other daughter is also having a friend over for the night Do you reckon anybody will get ANY sleep?   Uh-Oh, here comes one of them now.  AND, the friend just pulled up!  Happy Sleeping To all!
