It is Sunday… and it’s Superbowl Sunday …hope you are all enjoying today and the weekend …
I hope you all had a wonderful week that brought you to today and will carry you through tomorrow and the week ahead….
What were you thankful for last week? What filled you up with gratitude and empowered you with a good dose of appreciation?
I started my week upset because of certain actions that are not acceptable…. I did not let up and voiced my concerns frequently. By mid-week, I received an apology but more important I noticed a change, a better connection, let me rephrase that - a huge, huge connection; like actual hugs – being wanted and just being needed.
Hey, we have rules and they are put in place for one reason only; we are here to protect you as we see fit, and we are here to make adjustments as we see fit ----- but ultimately the rule or rules are implemented because we love you.
Number one– I am thankful for rules.
Number two – I am thankful for a true connection once the dust settled.
I should add this to my Thankfuls but there are so many … I won twenty bucks, Yay!
I have a new phone, it is a Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
So far the one thing that I like about the phone, and makes me laugh, is when I take a picture; all I have to say is “smile” or “cheese” and it automatically takes the picture. The funny thing is everyone thinks I’m saying “smile” and “cheese” to whomever I am taking the picture of, but I’m actually telling the phone…. This makes me giggle.
Number 3 goes to giggles! Giggles are fun and always needed….
The phone isn’t syncing with my Pandora and the car more often than none – sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn’t – it’s a bit frustrating - With my old phone I never had this problem - I’ll figure it out, that is why I’m not in love with my phone yet -----it’s been less than a month these things take time.
On Thursday was “Thank your mailman day” did you thank your mail carrier? I have my own – so I did …it’s a match made in heaven, I am afraid of mailing letters and he is not…LOL!
Number four goes to getting to work in one piece on Friday and getting home safely…
It snowed on Friday but prior to the snow was freezing rain - sleet, so it felt icy underneath the snow; slow and steady won the race. (for me it did)
Long Island, NYC and its boroughs was hit with a snow storm I think the amount was 8 inches on the Island; the day before it was in the 50’s - surprisingly schools were closed – the call came in early - children everywhere were smiling, and happy…
However, I had to go to work (it’s month-end) ….number five goes to the helpers cleaning my car….
Off I went armed with hugs, be carefuls, and knowledge that they are such good kids. (when they want to be)
I made it to work in 45 minutes - I drove along Old Country Road two hands on the wheel …a winter wonderland of snow everywhere, cars behind me, cars in front - sorry no pictures I was not taking any chances….. Take my word; it was beautiful!
When I arrived at the office, I was actually pulling into the parking lot, when I received the call from my boss, telling me that the office was closed. I was not the only one who trekked the snowstorm, two co-workers received the news the same way that I did. Number six goes to a reliable car that got me to point “B” back to point “A” in less than an hour and a half. On the way home some of the shrubs along the road were showing signs of heavy snow on top of them so again slow and steady won the race…..
I stopped at a bagel store before I made it home …
Number seven … a snow day, bagels, and Netflix (watch I’m having what Phil’s Having, very entertaining)
Number Eight - sleigh rides and fun to be had in the snow…
Number nine - I made these and they were delicious - home-made mozzarella sticks…
Last but not least …. Number ten, goes to the greatest purchase of the century ….LOL maybe or maybe not, but high on my list…. Two blue scarves/shawls… the thing is I wanted a blue scarf and reminded myself to look for one several times in the past - I found two at Old Navy under ten each, plus a coupon …omg were they free? Nay, but the price was real good… under five dollars each - I do love a bargain….
How was your week ….its Ten Things of Thankful ….come on add your own!
