It was wonderful participating in the 1000 Speak of Compassion . I was a little nervous adding my post about compassion, nervous to get it in on time, worried about the content, yet I overcame any doubt and did my part. Humbly I say to that, I try my best each day, and show some kindness.
We had Chinese food last night for dinner, that was Ms. Amelia’s fortune….from her fortune cookie.
I don’t work in a big city, I live in a suburban area, and my job is not far from my home. It is in a busier area, but it is not Manhattan by any means – regardless, I am out in public, my office is a building that also rents to a government facility- there is always someone that is lost and needs to be told where the facility is. I am mentioning this because writing about compassion is only the beginning. With all the wonderful writings, I am fueled to do more, to be kinder, and to destroy hatred. Congratulations to everyone that added their posts. Looking forward to the next Compassion Link.
Now for my Ten Things of Thankful
One – Thank you Hubby for driving me to work one day last week when the roads were icy.
Two - A family who binges together stays together – we all watched season one of The Blacklist, it’s on Netflix. It is awesome how the kids want to discuss with us about the show.
Three- Kindle, we are a family with Kindles. James got one for Christmas, and I got a newer one too. Amelia received hers last Christmas; I was able to set it up that we all are under one account, my account, which is awesome because I can set up their content from my Kindle. I added books for both kids, which they read and love. I also added various games and apps; despite the fact I can restrict the apps and games until they read for a certain time, which I can set, I haven’t. I told them that I am not restricting the apps or games, because I can tell if they are reading - so far it’s working, they are reading and still enjoying the Kindle experience. I want them to read – Amelia is reading, it is awesome!
Four – Saturday, I love you - especially when I am feeling run down and just need to relax – I think this winter is causing havoc to my sinuses - I feel like I have a cold, but then I don’t – earaches and the works, then I’m ok. It was nice to relax yesterday.
Five – Today’s menu – in honor of the Oscars – kids asked for finger foods. Spinach artichoke dip, Cheese Burger Sliders, Sliced mushrooms sautéed to taste like stuffed mushroom, maybe mini calzones and a salad.
Six – It is Oscar night, who is excited. Me!
Eight - Birthday celebration – we celebrated my sister’s birthday on Friday - Happy Birthday! It was nice seeing everyone and catching up.
Nine – Back to school tomorrow – winter break is over. Certain areas in my home are still not organized - I know I should have taken vacation too, with me home it would have been done. Nevertheless, what was done is still an improvement; great job Nick.
Ten - The simple things - we are warm, fed, and together.
What were your thankfuls last week?
