Trying to remember that there is always a reason, always something that makes you smile during the day- recognizing the event, person or situation that made you smile will make your day seem that much better.

Thursday's List

It's been a rough week...
and I am still a bit rough around the edges...but it's getting better..
Smiles this week
All of you and your support.  I can't thank you all enough
Starting my Christmas shopping and still not stepping foot in a store (I LOVE the internet...although I will be shopping tomorrow in real stores)
A decent week at work...not spectacular but definitely okay
Coming home to a quiet house with just my hubby here
Watching grown up tv all week - no spongebob at all!!
My cats are back to their normal snuggly selves- spending time downstairs again instead of huddled up on the bed
Good talks with some great friends this week
Half day of work tomorrow to go brave the stores
My wonderful husband who supports me no matter what and deals with my emotional swings, who gets upset and angry and feels like he needs to defend my honor, who gives the best hugs in the world and always knows what I need..
It's been a pretty good week on all accounts.
I have remembered that everything in life happens for a reason- I don't know what it is right now but I know that there is a reason.  There are always lessons to be learned- and although my heart is hurt- I know that the lessons will be prevalent soon enough..
There are lots of readers who need extra hugs and positive energy right now- so I am mustering all I can for all of you.  Know that I am thinking about you and hoping that all works out well.  Love and lots of hugs!!


  1. I love internet shopping too. We have been doing it for years and it is so fun - it may not put some people in the spirit, but those packages coming to my front door do it for me. And then I get to wrap. YAY.

    Hope next week is even better. Take care.

  2. Everything does happen for a reason and there is always something to learn. I love that your hubby is supporting you and you are still managing to find reasons to smile.
    Big hugs for you sweet lady

  3. Hi Col. I truly believe that everything really does happen for a reason, although, as you say, we are not always aware of the reason at the time! Like Mynx, I think it is a real blessing that you have a hubby who is so very supportive and wants to stand up for your honour. It doesn't get much better than that, believe me! I'm with you on the internet shopping. It is just SO much easier. Good luck in the real stores!! I would just like to thank you for the lovely comment you made on my post yesterday. Hugs.
