Being Thankful..........


Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference.

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.

Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

Here's One Of The Many Things I Am Thankful For........

Thanks for being one of the 'girls in my circle!'


When I was little,
I used to believe in the concept of one best friend,
And then I started to become a woman.
And then I found out that if you allow your heart to open up,
God would show you the best in many friends.

One friend is needed when you're going through things with your man.
Another friend is needed when you're going through things with your mom
Another will sit beside you in the bleachers as you delight in your children and their activities.
Another when you want to shop, share, heal, hurt, joke, or just be.
One friend will say, 'Let's cry together,'
Another , 'Let's fight together,'
Another , 'Let's walk away together.'

One friend will meet your spiritual need,
Another your shoe fetish,
Another your love for movies,
Another will be with you in your season of confusion,
Another will be your clarifier,
Another the wind beneath your wings.

But whatever their assignment in your life,
On whatever the occasion,
On whatever the day,
Or wherever you need them to meet you with their gym shoes on and hair pulled back,
Or to hold you back from making a complete fool of yourself ..
Those are your best friends.

It may all be wrapped up in one woman, But for many, it's wrapped up in several..
One from 7th grade,
One from high school,
Several from the college years,
A couple from old jobs,
On some days your mother,
On some days your neighbor,
On others, your sisters,
And on some days, your daughters.

So whether they've been your friend for 20 minutes or 20 years,
Pass this on to the women that God has placed in your life
To make a difference.

Book Worm award given by Melissa at Heart and Home

The book is Diana -Story of a Princess

Page 56 the 5th line:
They pressed so close that even the Queen lost her temper, snapping, "Why don't you go away?" Prince Charles wished reporters "a happy New Year and your editors a particularly nasty one". At the beginning of January press secretary Michael Shea let it be known tht the Queen was "very distressed" at the way her family had been harassed during thir winter holiday. The Queen urged Charles to take action soon but did not recommend one course or another. Diana planned a trip to Australia with her mother to escape from the pressure and persuade the Prince with her absence.

I too pass this award on to each and every blogger it's the holidays and I feel the need to share, share etc. Lets' make sure every person has a book worm award.

Thanksgiving For the Two Of Us

Since we are going to my daughters for thanksgiving, I had to at least set a table at home. So today we have soup, roasted turkey breast and dressing, mashed potatoes
with gravey and greenbeans. I have cramberry cake in the oven baking.
My tablescape for the holiday is very simple.

Wow Two Lamps In One Week?

This is a beautiful lamp. The shade has a georgous
gold material and the base is black and gold.This lamp was $100.00. I have been looking at this lamp for months. Since it was the last one and no match; they finally put it on sale. Lucky for me. I am usually not in the right place at the
right time. I think it is going in the great room. My DH has to put the plug attachement in the floor due to no area outlets unless you run many extention cords.

Here is my $13.00 find! No kidding

This lamp regularly sells for about $269.00. It was in the scratch and dent
sale. I ask what was wrong and the lights did not work. This lamp is very
heavy and the shades are chocolate brown and the shades feel like leather.
It's very detailed. Not sure where it is going but for $13.00 couldn't pass
this one up. I have all the lights working except one. My honey is going
to rewire the one. I have it sitting on this table to take a photo of it.

Melissa for you....wrought iron over master bed or topper as you call them

Here is a better photo.
Drapes that my girlfriend made custom for me. I love the beading. The window with the blinds pulled is the master bath potty room.

Accessories, drapery material and artwork in the dinning room.

Some items will stay and some will be placed in other rooms.
I am still undecided on a wall color for this room.

Make Over Dinning Room

This is the before photo of my dinning room.

Stay tuned for the make over in the christmas issue.

For the home decorating diva's

I thought I would start this blog because the BridalBlooms4u is more
geared toward the brides and florist.

More to come.

Comming Soon.........
