I told her I was going to explore, and take pictures
of the boats sticking out of the ground.

She was like... "what ???" [*rolling her eyes]...yeah...OK.  I'll go.

They were nice enough to let us check in early,
then we ran over the kind man in housekeeping, with the luggage cart.
The suitcase flung itself into the hallway.

 Hubby went to his meetings. I went shopping.
A little bit of chaos, a few giggles, a room with a view and  friends we treasure.
Just what we needed.

This morning I read : " Worry refuses to share the heart with gratitude.
One heartfelt thank-you will suck the oxygen out of worry's world."

I was reading my morning devotionals.
She sits with me, and I read to her. 
We were just having a serious conversation about the little things we were worried about.
[and some big things]
Then it was like...
Oh yeah !
Perspective is everything.

He stops so that I can take pictures of the sky.
Because the world seems to be in a big hurry,

...and I need for it not to be.

My dear hubby brought home a goat coat...
[ he said he did it for me, not the goat].

He'll probably never admit it...
but I think he's got a little soft spot for Oliver.

A dinner in her honor. Cousins giggling and playing hide-and-seek. 

Our first dusting of snow. Sombreros.  Eating too much cake.
A good day with the family.

Long talks about important things. A drive to a country cafe to meet
a friend for lunch.
Visiting with the locals, and sharing stories.

Taking steps towards our dream.
Feeling ready and hopeful.

Temps in the fifties, then in the twenties, within an hour.
  A trip to the Dr. for a few X-rays. 

      Making it home before the freezing rain fell.
 Ice-cream for lunch. Eagles at the dam,
 and potato soup for dinner.  
All in all, a pretty good day. :)

Is it just another day ?
Or is it a memory we are making ?

I will be more focused on how I create
my days this New Year.



This weeks lesson: Your strength is your own belief. XOXO
