How you doing? I’m Blessed!

So here I am, sitting in my living room with the fireplace blazing and a nice cup of tea, and I am again reminded how blessed I am.

I met last night with some awesome ladies from my church. We were having a “knitting and coffee” night at a local coffee shop. Other than the obvious knitting and the huge amount to chitter chatter, we were also there to talk about how awesome God is!

I put forth a challenge to them – to write a list of all the things that they were beleiving for, and put it somewhere you can see it, THEN write another list of all the things that you have been blessed with recently. Whether it is something you received free of charge or some amazing sale you happened upon, or even an event that occured that you were blessed by. This was not my original idea, my girlfriend has one on her fridge and was showing how many things they had been able to check off because they were provided for them. It was such a faith builder I decided to do the same. I was SHOCKED to look at my very long list of amazing blessings that I had received. God is Good!

“Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible”                        Matthew 19:26

So what is on your list?

Not too Shabby Home Decor

I LOVE SAHM/WAHM companies and products! There are so many amazing women out there that are juggling both kids and creating that I am going to try and blog about them every week!

This week I want to bring to your attention a LOCAL mom who is making the most beautiful signs for your home!
Handmade shabby chic wooden home decor are made from recycled or reclaimed wood. They are
lovingly stenciled and antiqued by hand, and you are now able to get custom names, quotes and colours! These are some pics of my favorites from her facebook page.

Charlie Brown… Quotes.

I love quotes, I love Charlie Brown (Snoopy most of all!!) Here are some quotes from our favorite “optimistic” cartoon boy!

Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.

There must be millions of people all over the world who never get any love letters . . . I could be their leader.


Sometimes I lie awake at night and I ask, “Why me?”, then a voice answers “Nothing personal, your name just happened to come up.

If I stand here, I can see the Little Red Haired girl when she comes out of her house… Of course, if she sees me peeking around this tree, she’ll think I’m the dumbest person in the world… But if I don’t peek around the tree, I’ll never see her… Which means I probably AM the dumbest person in the world… which explains why I’m standing in a batch of poison oak.

It always looks darkest just before it gets totally black.

And last but not least

Good grief

Remembrance Day

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
