Grateful:

I want to continue with my grateful message. If any of you are married or have been married. Then you know how hard it can be. My first five years of marriage was a true struggle for me. We had times where we just couldn’t get it right no matter how hard we tried. But we didn’t give up on each other. We got to a place where we both communicated so differently. Once we got into a marriage group and then started doing the hard work on one another we got better. No, we are not perfect but our marriage is better than ever. I’m grateful for my husband never giving up on me and this marriage. I’m grateful for him being the provider while I got laid off work. I’m grateful during this season of 2020 we are still in love and enjoy spending time with one another. There are so many people I know who are currently going through a divorce. It’s sad because you don’t know what people are going through in their marriage no matter how well you know them. Even if your marriage isn’t going as well as you would like if you and your spouse are still trying to make it work then that’s a reason to be grateful. I count my blessings daily when it comes to my husband. I’m grateful for him and his friendship.

Book review:

I was so excited to get this book. I’ve always been curious about the mothers of three great men. But where do you start? How do you find the information that you need? I was so eager to dive into this book and I must admit I feel like these three mothers. This book is full of love and compassion for their sons. How they were raised and taught shows the type of love that they received. This book also helps me to understand that no matter what as a mother when are always teaching our children and trying to have their lives better than ours. We lose sleep and suffer because of the love that we have for them. This book shows me that not only were these three mothers exceptional mothers but they didn’t get the credit that they deserved. We have to prepare our children for the world. And unfortunately, they had to live to see their son’s death. This book is beyond amazing and so needed at a time where mothers are hardly given the credit for raising such incredible men. Thank you book browse for giving me the opportunity for this advanced reading book.

There is so much going on right now to get us down and make us mad. Some things make us question different things about this year. But one thing that I’m seeing is how grateful people are at this time. I’m just going to say this, even though things are bad you are getting through it. Even though you may not be able to travel your safe. You may not be able to see your family for the holidays but they are alive. You might not be able to go into the office but you have a job. Your children may not be able to go to school but they are still learning. You may not be able to go to the movies but you have shows you have recorded that you can watch. You may not be able to do all the things that you use to do but you are alive. Why do we always focus on the bad? How about this week you make a list of the things and people you are grateful for.

Book review:

Okay I love mystery books and I usually can figure out pretty quickly who did it. But not this book. This book kept me on my toes for real. I didn’t want to put this book down it was so good. I’m sad I haven’t read more books from this author. A must read seriously. It’s that good.

Get some air:

I don’t know about you but the simple things are truly making my weeks and days. Yesterday I needed to run some errands but just getting out in the sunshine helped to lift my spirit. And I was thankful that not a lot of people were in the store when I went. I miss just getting out and about like I used to. Even though it’s cooler today than yesterday I still plan on going outside for a little while. I might take a walk or just stay on the porch. If your feeling down gets some fresh air if you can. Buy a plant or make a recipe you have been wanting to try. Even though this year and probably month is stressful, find different ways to de-stress and enjoy the day. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Let’s talk 2021:

There are so many things to be thankful for this year. But this month maybe we need to count our blessings even more. There has been so much love and hate regarding the next President of the United States. But to be honest we can’t seem to get along with the people we live with, work with, and have as neighbors. We are so worried about someone we probably won’t even meet in real life. We know that people say whatever they want to say to get elected right, so why is this any different. If you survived the last four years you will survive these next four years. But let’s talk about being grateful. I’m very grateful that God woke me up this morning, that we have a roof over our heads, food to eat. Yes, things are not all rainbows and sunshine in my house. But I’m grateful for my husband and kids. Can we give love to others who need it the most? If you haven’t talked to someone that you care about in years then give them a call. If you feel like life isn’t worth living trust me it is worth living. It might be rough right now but it won’t stay that way. Not because of the President but because of God. Trouble don’t last always. We have all had it rough this year, whether you have lost your job like me or your working from home as my husband. It hasn’t been my ideal year but I’m grateful for the growth and to know that I can overcome a lot of things. I have found joy in the small things. I have learned to truly cherish most is my time. My marriage has improved. I know that there are so many things to get down about. What about the joy and gratitude that you have? Let’s focus more on what we can change and do than on what others may or may not be able to do. I hope you have a great day.

Update:

I hope everyone is doing well today. I just want to give you an update on my book. I’m learning that there are going to be so many rewrites as a writer and I’m okay with that. I have started to change some things about the book that I’m working on. I had to stop writing for a while because I just got discouraged with my book and not knowing what direction I should go in. But I’m out of that funk now and working on this book. So how are you doing today? Have anything good going on right now?
