My husband and I were talking the other day. I’ve mentioned once before in this blog that there is a certain level of stress in this household lately. As freelancers, work is very, very slow right now. How to handle it? What to do? Husband said: “Just say thank you.”
Gratitude and thankfulness for every little thing that I notice during the day makes a difference. It is too easy to complain or worry. If I express gratitude, however, I feel lighter, happier and expectant. I expect good things. This is something I know in my heart but have to be reminded of occasionally. So thanks to my husband for his gentle reminder. And thank you to all my wonderful blogging friends. You have enriched my life more than you know.
There are two other things I wanted to mention. I am going to be taking part in this little party every Friday.
Jill at Gypsy Brocante is hosting a party every Friday between September 25th and November 27th where we will post something vintage that is black. What a neat idea! I have two items in mind already, but I will have to scramble for more. You can join by going to Jill’s blog – I also have a button on my sidebar that will take you right to Gypsy Brocante by clicking on it.
Remember Kelee Katillac’s cause? We all decorated scarves for our pets for Design Gives Back. Many pets are being given up in these tough times and Kelee’s goal was for enough of us to decorate scarves to bring in $2000.00 to contribute to the Foreclosure Pets Fund. I am happy to say we met the goal and Kelee is celebrating with a party on September 30th. Please visit her blog for details. Every link back to the blog will add $3.00 to the fund. You have to send your link before September 28th. Kelee is making a video and will post all sorts of pet photos. Join us!
