From Grateful

Dark Shadows

Hello friends! Happy Monday! I took a break from work for a few days and took a much needed road trip but now I’m back! Before my days off, (exactly four days before) I was pulled over by one of our finest police officers due to a confusion about my speed in a school zone. Confusion because I was sure I had not been speeding and he said “I clocked you at 26” and laughed 😂😂 I didn’t really think it was THAT funny- my life has been difficult lately (although I didn’t think I was particularly mournful that morning)…

Grateful Streak Continues…..

Hello Friends! If you’re new to reading my blog, I’ve dedicated my last three or so weeks to shopping my closet instead of new wardrobe items to focus on gratitude before Christmas.

I am so blessed with a wonderful family and great friends that I am happy to be out shopping for them. Although my thanksgiving was less than ideal (see my “Thanksgiving Debacle” post)…

Thankful for a Broke Down TV

Hello friends! I am just sitting down after a great dinner celebrating my daughter in law’s birthday. We made a enchilada casserole and bought chips and salsa from our favorite restaurant.
