So what’s in your bowl or cup or on your plate this morning? How about what’s packed for lunch? Any plans for dinner? Do you snack in between? And if you do, what do you snack on? Food is important isn’t it? Well heck, we need it to survive! Are you careful about what kind of food you intake? Are there restrictions or limits you set for yourself or your family?

Good morning friends. Just wanted to pop in quickly and say, today is a great day! At first when I awoke this morning, I felt anxious and started to ponder thoughts on things that were not for my benefit. I quickly caught myself and prayed. I then made the decision to change my thoughts and get my mind on good things in my life. I started with a gratitude list, I then moved on to […]

I received a message over twitter from a fellow follower who very nicely reminded me it is Friday and expressed that it’s […]

Good day my friends. Although I do not like to discuss my past abuse too often anymore, or get into any detail, I am writing this morning after reading through a few blog posts I follow and I am sitting here giving thanks to God for sparing me as He did from abuse that could have been far worse. I know it sounds weird to put forms of abuse on a “scale” however this morning […]

Ok the first, today makes twenty years Rob and I have been together. We met at a subway station at Yonge and St. Clair in Toronto, it was a very cold Saturday afternoon. We met at 4:00pm (I won’t tell […]

Hey there friends, how’s the day?  I had a great day. Spent a lot of time with my parents today. This morning I did plan on doing some cleaning and being busy, busy, busy until I asked God what He’d have me do today. Well, after dropping the kids I provide childcare for at school, I was walking the dog and decided to go visit my mom.  Oliver my dog LOVES my parents he was […]
