inspiration : thursday thoughtfuls

Once again, my week is all messed up. First there was Tuesday night when I was up at the church playing bunko with some church ladies. This made me feel like it was Wednesday night since I was up at the church. Then I didn't go to church last night because Tuesday I was starting to get a sore throat and even though I took some meds and went to bed early on Tuesday night (early as in 9:30... I NEVER go to bed that early unless I'm sick) I still woke up Wednesday morning with chills, body aches and that stubborn sore throat. So that made Tuesday night feel like Wednesday night and last night feel like Thursday night which means today should be Friday right? Ugh.... I hate when I'm wrong. I hate even more when I'm wrong about it not being Friday. That's the worst!


But here I am... it's Thursday. I keep reminding myself that it's Thursday. I'm about to take some allergy medicine to see if that will help (after all, it is cotton stripping time and with all the wind we've been having maybe my allergies are just acting up right now), my Christmas tree is 75% decorated, I've got leftover potato soup in the fridge, the baby is napping right now so it's time for a little thursday thoughtfuls. YAY!

This is so true. It's one thing to say you love someone, it's another thing to show them. As a foster mom, I hear a LOT (more than I want to) of cases where children have been told they are loved, but they aren't shown that love. Don't just say it, show it. With your children, your spouse, everyone.

What an important lesson to learn!

Exactly.

Be the kind of person, that puts hearts back in to people.

I'm an optimist. Something it's draining to be an optimist. But then I remind myself of how draining it must be to live a life as a pessimist and I fill myself back up so I can overflow my optimism into the life of ever pessimist I meet. 

Okay... I'm hoping that by the end of the day, all traces of my sore throat will be gone and the Christmas tree will be fully decorated. At least I have control over one of those. ;)

Happy Thursday everyone!

  1. I love this one especially.

    I was raised by a mom who has always been a pessimist and it is very draining. I am praying that I am more optimist today because of my love for the Lord.
