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

The full moon is tonight and I was hoping to be able to go out and soak up some of the rays...
The moon has healing powers in a way for me and sometimes helps to curb the craziness and helps to settle my soul..
There are clouds in the way tonight so I will settle for some meditation before bed.

Some really good smiles this week...
I am finally settled in my new desk at work..hidden away in my own little world with a fan that is just loud enough to drown out all the unfamiliar voices and the din of the sales floor.
A nice compliment today made me smile this morning as well as finally unpacking all my stuff and having my pictures surround me again.
The strong, vibrant woman in my life, both online and in my everyday life make me smile every day, but today is a day to celebrate them.
They are tenacious, kind, loving and fun....and all the while strong willed, tough and resilient.
I admire those woman in my life who have taught me everything from cooking to knitting to writing.
There are many woman who make me smile on a daily basis, share amazing talents, write the tough stuff that goes one and rather than getting down about it keep moving forward, keep loving and keep finding reasons to smile.
There are woman that I admire for their intelligence, their passion and their knowledge.
Woman who, even in this day and age, have to work harder, better and smarter to be heard and recognized in a corporate environment that very much still has an old boys mentality at the top. Woman who go home after working ten or twelve hour days to their families, juggling husbands, girl scouts, swim meets and laundry.
Woman who make you smile, are always there with a hug, a quick phone call or a girls night.
Woman who are strong, determined but can still show their softer sides.
To all of the woman in my life Happy International Woman's Day.
You are an inspiration and a joy and I am lucky to count you as friends and colleagues.

I hope all my friends out there tonight are safe, happy and tucked into a warm bed. I hope the moon rays bring you peace and sweet dreams. Spring is in the air here and on the back of the warm breeze that is blowing I am sending happy, peaceful thoughts and love to all of you.


  1. Lovely post, happy day for you too!

  2. What a lovely post. Happy Internationl Woman's Day to you too.

  3. Lovely post Col (as always!) and the sentiments in the final paragraph are beautiful. Isn't it wonderful to think that spring is just around the corner?! Really lifts the spirits. Sending peaceful thoughts, love & hugs right back to you my friend.

  4. Good Friday morning and I hope you had a restful night. Currently all my blog family is females with the exception of my friend Tom down in Fl. I am blessed daily with women that entertain, inspire, educate, make me laugh and feel a part of their lives and I do appreciate every one of the ladies in my world.
    I had to pluck my cute little stuffed creature off the top of my monitor yesterday as i departed the office for the last time as an employee. Linda & I will return around 4 PM for a BBQ chicken supper to officially say the good byes. This morning feels so much like it's Saturday and maybe the feeling of being retired will kick in by next week sometime. Have a marvelous day and a great weekend.

  5. I think we should celebrate these women every day!! Thanks for my last comment. I'm glad things are falling into place for you. You can email me ANYTIME you know. I'd love to hear from you. Love you too sweetie! Hugs!

  6. Wonderful post. Thank you for the smiles you bring me. (After a bit of a dodgy week I am finally playing catch up.)
