Memorial Day


Memorial day is a good day for family get-togethers and remembrance.  We did both of those today and through the weekend.  Been a busy weekend. But, a good, fun one, too. Decorated my sister, grandpa and grandma's graves yesterday to be ready for today. They look really nice.  Had dinner and lunch at my sister and her husband's home yesterday and today.  Saw old and new friends, too! Which was great!  Stayed active!  Kicked my workouts in the butt this weekend, too!  And had lots of great, quality time with my family. 

Also, remembering that memorial day is a day to reflect on the men and women in uniform who fight and lose their lives for our freedom.  And thanking them for their service.  So thank you.

Now just chilling and doing some thinking.  Really just thinking how life has set-backs that we learn from.  And realizing, from those set-backs, that nothing will keep me down!  Remembering, that I have a fighting spirit!  So here's to fighting on!  


Take care, friends.


Until Next Time.....

Five on Friday....


So in the hopes of getting back to my regular blogging, I decided to do a 5 on Friday!  :)  Enjoy!



One:  

It was a good day for golf!  However, the golf pro didn't show up!  What!?  Yep, I sat there for 45 minutes and finally left to run errands.  He did call me later and we got another appt. scheduled for next week.  He did offer me a free lesson because of the mistake!  So I'm happy and satisfied!  But my clubs weren't happy to be left in the car.  :(



Two:

I ran errands and went to the MAC Cosmetics counter at the mall to get some new "happys!" :)  By happy I mean lipstick, gloss, some shadow and mascara.  While getting my items, the sales lady told me I had beautiful eyes!  How sweet!  And it made my day!!  I almost gave her a tip! :)


Three: 

Love my little family.  My hubby came home and made me dinner.  We are having some drinks together and lounging watching Modern Family.  Our son is happy, healthy and playing outside.  Love hearing his giggles!  Life is good.  




Me and my guys at my sis's wedding in November.


Four: 

It's Friday!  Love that it's Friday and we have a long weekend ahead of us.  Just makes me happy! :) We're also seeing Wicked tomorrow at the Omaha Orpheum Theater.   So excited.  It's our second time seeing it, and it's one of my FAVORITE Broadway shows! 






Five: 

Happy Memorial Day.   Remember why we have the extra day off and why we celebrate it.   Here's to a good day of family and remembrance.  




Have a great weekend everyone!   Make it a good one! :)

Until Next Time....

When God....




I firmly believe that when God closes a door, he opens a window.  Some days it's harder to believe that than others.  But, I have to keep believing that he is there for me during hard times.  During the good and the bad.  He is my strength and protector.  So when that door closes....the window eventually does open.  Maybe not in your time.....but in God's time.   And maybe the window isn't at all what you thought is would be, but it's still there waiting for you.  So that's where I am.  To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under Heaven.

It's been awhile since I've been here.  I hope to be back more now that summer is beginning for me. God willing I can keep up with it.  I enjoy my time here.  I'd like to see this grow and go somewhere fun.  So that's a new focus.  Prayers and good thoughts.  That's what I need.

Have a blessed day.
