    • heart this year I am thankful for so much more than I have ever been.
      Some might seem really out of the box but here goes in no order
      My family.....how I love them.
      My work.....because I still work.
      My car.....because my dream was full filled and now realize I liked it better as a dream lol
      My friends....how much they lift u up and u count on the advice either knowen or never met a friend is a friend.
      My illness......big one here......taught me how to love truely.....not only me but my life. The little day to day things. Taught me to get my stuff straight because I need to pass things on.
      Taught me the world had many places and I wasnt the center of it
      Fab 40 sisters ......who also taught me that but with kinder words and inspiration
      That money....while nice is just paper and an honest soul caries so much more value
      God is here....maybe not how I see but thru the people I see
      For all of this Im so truely blessed and thankful.
      I hope all that read this will share
      Hugs

        • Just A Little Message Sent To Me, Enjoy!

          “YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW.”  

          Keep reading to the bottom of the page—don’t  

            stop at the feet (You’ll see).  

            Two traveling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family.

            The family was rude and refused to let the angels stay in the mansion’s guest room.  

            Instead the angels were given a small space in the cold basement.

            As they made their bed on the hard floor, the older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it.  

            When the younger angel asked why, the older angel replied,

            “Things aren’t always what they seem”  

            The next night the pair came to rest at the house of a very poor, but very hospitable farmer and his wife..  

            After sharing what little food they had the couple let the angels sleep in their bed where they could have a good night’s rest.  

            When the sun came up the next morning the angels found the farmer and his wife in tears.  

            Their only cow, whose milk had been their sole income, lay dead in the field.  

            The younger angel was infuriated and asked the older angel how could you have let this happen?  

            The first man had everything, yet you helped him, she accused.  

            The second family had little but was willing to share everything, and you let the cow die..

            “Things aren’t always what they seem,” the older angel replied.  

            “When we stayed in the basement of the mansion, I noticed there was gold stored in that hole in the wall.  

            Since the owner was so obsessed with greed and unwilling to share his good fortune, I sealed the wall so he wouldn’t find it.”  

            “Then last night as we slept in the farmers bed, the angel of death came for his wife I gave him the cow instead.  

            Things aren’t always what they seem.”

            Sometimes that is exactly what happens when things  don’t turn out the way they should. If you have faith, you just need to trust that every out come is always to your advantage. You just might not know it until some time later...

             Today is a gift.  

            That’s why it’s called the present!

        • Too many things to mention, but for the most part my life and the love of my hubby and children, and that God loved me enough to save, sanctify me and fill me with His holy spirit.

        • Plussize4u, what a great story and so true!! At times when I pray about something and God does it another way or not all at, I wonder where He is and why He doesn’t hear me; however He does and works everything out for our good because we love Him!!! This is an amazing reminder! God bless you and have a highly favoured weekend! happyheart
