Good Afternoon Bloggers!
How is everyone doing today?
I am sorry I haven't posted in a COUPLE of days! I have been really BUSY at work!
First off I want to say HELLO to all my new FOLLOWERS!
Wow, it is hard to believe that I have like 54 followers!
I LOVE it tough!
I have been doing FABULOUS ladies and boys!
I wanted to post some SPRING pictures to go along with my SPRING post!
Oh, and can just say it is a BEAUTIFUL day in ALABAMA!
I am wearing a DRESS today with a jean jacket and FLIP FLOPS!
I would take a picture and post, but I have lOST my phone :(
Here is my SWEET baby Samson. He has just figured out how to dig holes in the yard :( Oh, and for all you dog LOVERS out there he is on a chain thingy, but it is not really a chain and he was just on it for this picture and a couple minutes to run around. Samson is an inside doggie when I am home and he is not old enough for a wireless fence collar yet :) As soon as he turns 6 months he will get to stay outside with his sister while I am at work! :)
This is my ANGEL Ellie Mae. You couldn't get a better dog baby than her! :) Oh, she is sitting on the deck my husband just finished this past weekend! I am SO PROUD of him!
These are the BEAUTIFUL flowers I just hung on my front porch! I have had them for about 2 weeks and they are still alive! PRAISE GOD!
This is a AWESOME tree in my front yard! I LOVE it!
Onto BAND news.....
NOTHING to report!
I am doing HORRIBLE on this 6 month diet. I am SURE I have gained weight! I am just being a GOOD girl and going to ALL my appointments and waiting this 6 months out :)
Ok, ladies and boys! I know this post seems kinda of boring, but it is all I can do for today! I am going to do another BEAUTIFICATION report tomorrow, I think!
I'll share this for today, just something that has been on my HEART!
I was teaching Sunday school on Sunday morning and we have been studying Hebrews. We were in the 12th and 13th chapter and were talking about things that help us endure. There is a long list written in Hebrews. I was reading them out and having the youth raise there hands when I read the one they were going to commit to doing this week. I came across the one that said "show gratitude." That really hit home. You know we don't show GRATITUDE enough.
So many times and occasions we just take for granted that people know we are thankful for them and appreciate them. Just because we think they know doesn't mean they do! I know this sounds simple, but take the time to tell people YOU CARE!
I took on this challenge this week, and it has made a difference. I have taken the time to slow down and make sure people understand just how much I APPRECIATE them! Everyone wants to feel NEEDED and LOVED!
I am reminded of a saying that used to be written on my boss' coomputer as a screen saver.....
I can't remember it exactley but it went something like...
Just because someone is smiling on the outside doesn't mean you know what they are going through on the inside!
Take the TIME to tell someone THANK YOU!
You never know how much that might mean to them!
Thanks for reading ladies and boys!
