Linking up with Dayle at Simple Pleasures.
First week in January....and it's already a great year. My goal - to kick back.. embrace life...give life my best....and enjoy the simple pleasures of life...I'm learning.....thanks for that Dayle. This week I'm grateful for:
-Dave...I was trying to pull a screw out from a lock on the front door. It wouldn't budge. Dave was standing outside. I didn't know him...but he saw me struggling...came over...took the screwdriver and pulled that screw out. I mumbled thanks. He flashed a huge smile. His action...his kindness....and his smile turned the day into something pretty neat.
-Sparked up a friendship with some new neighbours who just moved from overseas. Even our kids hit it off.
-Went to my first toastmaster's meeting. I want to push past my fears...and learn to have my voice in front of people. The group of twenty were the kindest people. Even though I felt really nervous.....I've decided to stay. I'm thankful for all of them.
-Hope and joy - I wake up feeling it...even though there's no real reason except I know He's there..in my corner...whispering...it's okay now. You can do and be anything you want. He's making all the difference. He makes my heart want to sing.
