Blessings Friday

Here are a few of my blessings this week.

Your Comments

I am having such a blast celebrating life with you. Thank you for your wonderful comments.

Notes from the Universe

Many months ago I joined The Adventurer’s Club. This is a “FREE philosophical club for the adventure of life, with over 160,000 members from around the world who believe that living in the jungles of time and space, as a creation amongst our creations, is the ultimate Adventure because ‘thoughts become things,’ dreams do come true, and all things remain forever possible!”

Each day an inspirational message appears in my email entitled “Notes from the Universe.” Here is an example:

Remember when it was really fun, June, to catch raindrops on your tongue, walk under archways because they were there, and roll around in sand at the beach? To go all the way to a store for a tiny treat, lie on the grass looking for "God" in the clouds, and make scary monster faces in the mirror? To watch the stars because they were winking at you, count the flowers in the garden by the door, and put Cocoa Puffs up your nose?

Well, June, I'm happy to inform you, most of it still is....

-The Universe

Don’t you just love that?

My Best Guy

My husband is the best guy in the world—for me. Your guy is your own best guy in the world.

This is my husband—he has clear hair.

I’m forever saying, “I’ve been thinking…” to which my husband’s response is, “Uh oh.” But he always listens, comments as needed, and generally encourages my creative ideas and activities in what he euphemistically calls “June World.”

I have different names for my guy depending on the moment’s need. Sometimes he functions as Mr. Man when I want him to take out the trash and be quick about it. When math starts getting complicated (calculus and physics—yuck!), I see no point in worrying myself over it when I have Math Man around.

About the only time I watch TV is during the month of October when I love watching old scary movies. But this presents a problem as they terrify me. So then I call for Ranger Man (he’s a former U.S. Army Ranger) when I need a protective hug.

Recently he was Very Bad Man when he hit a pool ball so hard that it flew off the pool table (that resides in what is supposed to be our dining room) and into the glass doors of the china cabinet.

I absolutely must tell you how I handled that little special event. I simply and quietly said, “I’m so pleased you’re going to personally take care of the repairs yourself.” And then I went and baked his favorite cake for him. Now, am I brilliant or what?

Your Blessings

What blessings made you smile this week?

You are a genius of diplomacy :<) My Hubby is my best Friend, too. I don't know what I would do without him. I am recovering from a 2-day migraine and he is constantly at my side....rubbing my back and neck, getting me water, or just holding me tight. We are fortunate women and a day never goes by without me counting that blessing, too.

I LOVE that you said he had "clear" hair. So funny! And really, the way you handled the broken glass was PERFECT. I hope I'm that smart when something like that happens around my house!!!!

I guess I have two blessings for the week:

1. I'm glad my son didn't break his arm over the weekend on the rope swing at the river
2. That this is my last week of sitting at home - because I'm bored!!! :)

Oh my! My granpa had a pool hall for awhile, so playing pool has been popular in our family over the years. I know how hard and fast so balls can fly! You an your husband sound perfect for each other.
I spent a wonderful afternoon with a friend. We went to the fruit stand, and picked out pumpkins and cornstalks, mums and pansies, to decorate our front porches with. Then we enjoyed coconut cream pie and coffee.

Me and Him said...

I love the clear hair. I know a few people who will appreciate that.

I am very grateful this week for my hubby, my parents, his parents, my current boss, and my soon to be new boss who waited and listened and made appropriate mmms and ahhs as I struggled with a decision to change jobs.

Clear hair -so neat !

That was a classic response, June; so much easier on the household than blowing up, no? ;)

Let's see, today I'm thankful that I have family in the same town (lots of 'em), my husband home for the whole week, and I got to watch my son rock out to The Boss during the Today Show this morning. It's the little things, dontcha know.

And when he fixes the china cabinet, and other Huny Do projects around the house, he's Handy Man!

I'm thankful for my hubby...he loves me and supports me more than I could have ever imagined he would. and I am so thankful for our 3 kids, and the fact that I have my family no matter what kind of hoopla we are going through. :)

Oh my goodness - I'd say you're not only brilliant but something of a saint too! I'll try to remember you next time my "best guy" does something similar ...

Hahaa! My husband also has clear hair! Today he was Very Bad Man because yesterday I told him that our perfectly fine printer was out of ink; so he goes today and buys a brand new very expensive printer rather than just ink cartridges.
