Bless You!

My week off went by at the speed of light.  I'm excited to be back to my project of the week, and writing the blog posts.  
My week started off by the staff at my local Starbucks, presenting Broadside and I an envelope with certificates for a week's worth of free coffee drinks.  The staff decided that we were their customers of the week.  We earned this honor because we are so "cheery and funny everyday."  They look forward to seeing us.  We look forward to seeing them as well.  It is a great way to start our day.  It was wonderful to be acknowledged for being positive and funny.
The rest of my week was filled with crafting, coaching my amazing clients, lunches with friends and wonderful walks in the Autumn sun.  One of my friends said he didn't recognize me because I looked so happy and that has changed my entire being.  Wow!  The work I've been doing on myself over the last year is starting to show.
On one of my walks this week, I was hit with just how happy I am and the great life I'm creating. 
Might sound like bragging.  Okay.   I'm just taking stock of my reactions to what life is tossing at me.  My life is what I'm making of it.  I still have areas of work (thank goodness! I'd be dead if I didn't.), life is anything but perfect. I have challenges.
An effective trick I've learned and I'm using is to send a blessing to whatever is annoying me. Sending a blessing works with positive situations as well. The blessing can be for peace of mind or the person or for strength or for an answer to a question.  With the simple act of blessing I feel all the blessings that are in my life.  I can relax and move forward.  Blessings flow to and from me.  It is freeing.  It's working for me.
So, sending you blessing for whatever it is you want to have or change in your life. 
Bless you!  It isn't just for sneezes alone.  Also, don't forget to count your blessings as well.

My project is a cover for my little barbeque.  It sits on my newly painted and refreshed front porch.  I wanted to protect it from the elements and have it ready to go when I want to "que".


  1. What a great idea. Our grill cover is really boring. What's the fabric made of? I've not seen anything outdoor-proof in a stripe like that.

  2. Sounds like a wonderful week! I myself need to take stock of my blessings everyday. Sometimes I forget to look at the small blessings which is always around if you look for them. I just need to be more aware.
