fall leaves

Sunday, November 23, 2014

It has been a rough month! Sick baby for 2 weeks and then Tuesday of this week I took a nasty fall off of the stairs. I did not see that the baby had found a water bottle somewhere and had been playing with it and inadvertently it got left at the bottom of the stairs. I can down with a basket of laundry and could not see my feet so I stepped directly on it. It rolled and the shot out to the side. It sprained both ankles! I seriously thought that the left one was broken. I am fine now on flat ground but stairs are still killer.
Historically it has been October that was rough....
It is itching on the inside now...not sure how to explain that exactly. I'll just be so glad to be better!

Thankful that even though he doesn't get to be home, my hard working hubby has the day off to relax and rest. 
I am thankful that Ms Busy got seen at the ER and is feeling a little better today. 
Thankful to be in a position to be able to drop everything and go help when needed! What a blessing. 
This is her sleeping in my arms in the ER waiting room. So very precious!

Thrifty find , thrifty gifts

I found the great little jars at Goodwill. There were 6 of them!
 I really nabbed them because I think they are cute but then I had to justify the purpose for them. I already have TMS (too much stuff) so just being cute wasn't enough. 
I am going to make a batch of carpet freshener with my Plant Life "Clean House" essential oil (can also be a fridge freshener) and maybe some cleaning scrub, or the water marble air freshener . Very excited! 
I came up with a good use for them!  And as you can see they did indeed get to come home with me! :-)

Today I am thankful that God cares for us. He speaks to us directly! He heals us inside and out. He restores what we have lost,given away or been robbed of! He teaches us and leads us. He is a loving and good Father! Thank You Abba!

November 5

5 is the number of GRACE! I am thankful for the grace of God ! The grace that offered salvation to a prideful, sin sick ,southern girl like me. I didn't meet Jesus until I was 28 and I have never been the same ! 
I also thank God that today my daddy passed the eye test to get to keep his driving privileges. I am very grateful, and relieved for us all. 
I am thankful that our son could take the time to go to the doctor with his grand dad today. I hope they make good memories today.
