The importance of being thankful

Hi! This morning, I bring you Lauras first post! Today she writes about being thankful!
Read on for a wonderful message from Laura venturini!

The Importance of being Thankful

We get caught up in our own little worlds. With the ups and downs that life can bring. Its so easy to miss the blessings we have in front of us daily. Sometimes we just need to step back and take a look around. What do you see? What are you thankful for?

Let go of the negative for a bit. Forget about what is troubling you. Let the weight thats on your shoulders lighten. For a bit sit back and look at what you have and be thankful.

Quote of the day and my thoughts…

The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.
Alan Bennett

so true!

Sometimes I read and I go wow!I was thinking the same thing!

And I love when that happens!

Just knowing I am thinking along similar lines to someone else is really helpful at times!


Thank you, Bee!

Who won the week? 8-25-19

I am participating in Fandangos prompt again this week, the who won the week prompt!
Fandango says the following about the prompt.

The idea behind Who Won the Week is for you to select who you think won this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.

I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.


So for me this week, the person who won the week is none other than my PA Frances. She won this week for two reasons. Number one, she always brightens my day, and lifts my mood. She comes in, we chat and I really enjoy our long convos. She cleaned my house this past week from top to bottom. Without me telling her what she needed to do, she also took time out of her day when she wasnt working with me to go pick up my meds, and bring them to me. She also went to the store to get me a few things I needed, again on her own time, and I was very grateful that she did that for me. So thank you, Frances. She doesnt read my blog, but I still wanted to acknowledge her. I wanted everyone to know what a great PA she is. I think she does a fine job and she’s a great person to have as a PA.
