Tough Lesson's to Learn

Judgement goes against the Laws of Love.

Oh man, most times I can look past passing judgement.  But there are still a few people and situations I just can't seem to rise above.  It makes me no better than those I judge.  It's quite a humbling experience to stop in the middle of a mental rant and realize that it's wrong, what I'm doing. 
That's a big Life Lesson to stumble upon so early in the morning, so early in the week.  I guess I know what my waking reflection will be this week.
I will keep trying.

Happy Thursday!! What are you Thankful for?!

I missed last week!! 
For very good reason.  My Gran and Aunt were here for a visit!!  It was fabulous!  It was three days of catching up and shopping for quilt material in Wichita.  Gran quilts.  She is AWESOME at it.  But the visit was just too short.  They had to get to Paducah Kentucky for the National Quilt show, then on to Illinois to see my sweet cousin.
This week was Kindergarten Round Up.  It's an orientation for this fall's set of kids and parents entering Kindergarten.  Parents get info and Kids get to spend a few hours in school seeing what the next school year will be like.  I love that the school does this.  Nae was beside herself excited.  I got a few hours to myself, it was wonderful!!
I got to have a tour of my Sis's new house via Skype, it was awesome to finally see it.  I'm so proud of her and my brother.  A place to call their own.
Baby Sister got a promotion at work and took the time out of her training session in San Fransisco to call and update me. 
It was 94 degrees here last night, the house was hot and the air conditioners are not in windows yet.  Momma got very little sleep.  When I did fall into some sort of slumber, I was awaken to my five year old daughter standing by my bedside with toast made and my vitamins.  "Time to get up Momma, I made you breakfast.  Charlie will be here soon."  (The little boy that we watch four days a week)
What is not to be Thankful for in all I have just layed down on this page?  Exactly.

Bright Blessings,

Thankful Thursday...

So, our 9th wedding anniversary was yesterday.  We celebrated in a very low key way, homemade dinner at home with the little girl beside us.  She thought she was quite special being a part of such a big kid deal.  She was such a good kid at the dinner table.  I left the two to their own devices, while I took myself to an hour in the tub, relaxing.  Its what I needed, then I wondered why the hell I haven't been stepping away from the family scene and giving myself a few minutes.So, that leads me to the Thankful things this week.
A minute to myself.
An approved final piece of paperwork to finalize my sister's home loan.
A few awesome posts from family recognizing my sixteen year relationship with Hubby.
My little girl recognized the value of all day PJ and snuggle time with mom, we were down for the count on Monday with some Out-of-nowhere cold.  She loved it and asked to have a day like that on Friday.
I have a great Husband.  I so thankful for having him by my side.  Here's to many more years.

In Love and Light,

Thankful Thursday

This week has been a blur, adding/changing things around in the schedule has taken me from the blogpsot this week.  Its good stuff though.  So let's just cut to the meat of the situation, huh?
  • I have had a few bumps this week with TMJ, Thankful to have a Hubby to help me out when I need it.  So glad he takes care of me.
  • Thankful for Naenah being a kid.  Realizing that she won't be a kid for very long, and just letting her be one.
  • We have a CHL league in town, Hubby, Nae, and I got tickets to see a play-off game.  Nae LOVE IT!! Grateful to be able to give and watch her in new experiences.
  • Good news back on my Dad's Dr appts.  For a two time cancer survivor, good news is the Life line of a healthy life.
  • Thankful that my Big Sister (Trav's Sis)  can call me whenever she needs to vent.  Extremely relieved that she did so this week.  It's a long road for her, but I will be there to help.
  • I've had the chance to connect with family this week.  Stay in touch, and get updates from a bunch of family.  SO thankful for that.
So its short and sweet this week.  How about you?

Love, Light, and Bright Blessings,
