Instead of saying, "I have to go to work" feel blessed that, "I get to go to work". That saying should go to everything we do!

It's hard to stay in that mode all the time but even before I heard that sermon I have always tried to adopt that attitude in times that seem tough or things that I do that seem like mundane task! I just love the way he worded it!!!
Thank you for sharing this ~ love it!

So there are a lot of schools here that had to cancel school because it was just to dangerous for the buses to get out. Not to mention half of my neighbors car doors were frozen shut this morning. It's a good thing that I have 2 long extension cords and a hair dryer. Now I'm going to kick back and warm up before I decide what to put in the crock pot for dinner. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is cold here, too. We didn't get as much rain and it turned over to snow rather quick, but there was enough that there is a layer of ice on the ground and roads. School was delayed for two hours this morning. The sun is shining and I don't have to go out until tomorrow morning, so there is time for them to do something to my road ~ *crosses fingers*. Have an even better day, Made!

Good morning, MMC!

It's Monday ~ yay!!!

I hope this finds everyone doing well! Busy day today ~ glad I get to spend it at home doing paperwork for the store. The next two days I won't be home much so I need to get as much done as possible today.

Have a most MERRY day!!!

There is a long-haired black cat wandering around outside. He isn't one of mine. I have seen him hanging around for the past few weeks, but he always stayed closer to the barn and the woods. He has been getting closer and closer to the house and the area the cats are fed, so maybe he is planning on sticking around.

My 3 year old granddaughter just said something nice about all of you.

I was trying to rearrange some boxes of Christmas items in my closet. One of my small boxes fell to the floor. It was full of Christmas cards that I got from some of you during one of our Christmas card exchange a few years ago. The cards scattered all over the floor and my granddaughter said, "What is that"? I said, "They are Christmas cards from my Christmas friends". She looked real surprised and said, "Ohhhh, I like your Christmas friends"!!! I said, "I do too"!!! She is always so darn sweet!

I have "stray" stray cats too! Lol.. I have my resident stray kitties that live on my property and my next door neighbor's property that eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. They know us and let us pet them. Then occasionally other stray cats show up and will visit once or twice a week for a snack. They will disappear for a couple of weeks then return.
