A Fabulous Day

Today is Friday, October 2, 2009. The sun is shinning and it is going to be another fall day! The squirrels seem to get energized in the cooler weather too. They get crazy pinging off of the trees and playing tag with each other.

Yesterday was a fabulous day. Got more cleaning done and laundry done, the house smells so good with all of the windows open. Received the lady bug material, went to see my mom, and I was so honored to receive this award from Sarah.

This award is truly an honor to receive. It is not one that is passed on, it is truly given as a gift. I took this off of Sarah's blog:

The Mental Duck to Mental Swan Award is given to two amazing groups of bloggers;

1. To Bloggers who encourage and nurture others bloggers to explore and grow in their creative, spiritual or mental lives.
2. To Bloggers who are blooming and growing creatively, spiritually or mentally in their lives & sharing it on their blogs .

Please do not pass this one along....I like to give it out every now and again as a gift from me..Thanks!

If you aren't following Sarah's blog you are missing a wonderful blog. She is honest, open and a very caring lady. Her blog will make you laugh, cry and think, really think. She will inspire you to go to the next level with little fear. She will also put things in check, sometimes we all need a reminder in life. I thank you Sarah for sharing so much of yourself with all of us! You are a generous soul! A true friend.....

I went to see mom last night and we talked until 3:30 this morning! We had so much fun, taking and laughing. I love my mom, she is so no nonsense, says it like it is. I know where I get it from. No sense in fertilizing that bush.

So today I will work on a couple of loads of laundry and sew with the lady bug for my special girl. I think I will be able to get her a few items out of that material and going to get them done for her. Also have to finish up my treat bags for the troops. Been working on this for a couple of weeks now and have to get this finished up and sent out to them.

These guys bring tears to my eyes. I miss my hubby, but I also know that he can come home if need be and he can come home for the holidays. Our troops can't, my heart goes out to them and their families. I remember not so long ago my son doing two tours in Iraq, not an easy feeling. So again I say a heart felt thank you to them and their families!

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~ Brightest Blessings ~
