Creative juices are flowing

We are getting ready for our big Halloween bash at work...each department decorates for Halloween and I am on the decorating committee (of three) for our department...so although I despise the idea of mandatory fun, it is fun to allow the creative juices to flow...so that's one smile for today.

The other is my acupuncture appointment.  I seriously love acupuncture and the person who does my acupuncture is sort of like a therapist....we talked about what I would ideally like to be doing in my career tonight and it was great to hear the positive feedback.  The acupuncture is relaxing and the fact that I get a whole hour in a dark room with music and can meditate and just relax is the best thing that I do for myself during the week.

I have been doing some serious thinking about a lot of things lately and am grateful for everything in my life.  I have a husband that I love more than life itself, a family who I would do anything for, friends from many different points in my life who I couldn't live without and a job that pays the bills.  I have a roof over my head, food on my table and my cup runneth over.  I have worked hard and am a pretty lucky person.  Life hasn't always been a bowl of cherries and I have been reflecting on some of the things that have happened in my life.  No matter what has happened, I am reminded looking back on some of the situations that everything happens for a reason.  There are some "anniversaries" coming up in the next few months- and I realize as these dates come and ago how truly lucky I am.


  1. You are truly blessed but in my view it is because you have the sight of now. It's not escaping you, you are in the moment. Yay for you. The Olde Bagg

  2. We think alike Nicole... very much so.

  3. Like you, I think things happen the way they do for a reason :)

  4. I missed this post [my apologies!] I have always wanted to try acupuncture for the joint pain - but I don't think I would know where to begin. I truly believe it would help tho'. Anything has got to better than what is going on sometimes now.
    I too am grateful for so much. It may not be the Trump lifestyle, but it is ours and it is pretty dang cool.
