Well, we have snow again!!!!!!! I really do enjoy the snow. I don't like the fact that my hubby has to work. I love the fact that I can make the call to stay home. Seems that people are finally leaving the condos this afternoon. This morning about 9am, NO ONE HAD MOVED A CAR!!!!!!!
It's a lot of slush but tonight will be difficult when it all starts freezing over again.
Well, things are picking up. I can feel overwhelmed when I think about it but I am choosing not to. I have a boat load of pictures to post from Christmas and from birthday and then we have a "birthday" party Saturday so we will have pictures from that I am sure. So you will have to stay tuned for that. It will be a lot of fun I am sure.
During the last week or so, I thought I would take a bit and just share again about this "Word for the Year" and mine being "choice".
A little over a week ago, I rec'd word that my ex-MIL was in the hospital. She had CHF (congestive heart failure), COPD, and had 2 heart attacks and was in the Cath Lab at the hospital. I waited on every phone call to see what the status was. Yesterday morning, she went in and had by-pass surgery and I am so very thankful and praising the Lord once again that He stepped in and has seen her through. She is doing WONDERFULLY, aside from a little nausea, she is doing GREAT!!!!! I realize that she maybe my ex-MIL but she was my MIL for years. I have prayed and prayed for her and the family over the last week. I was able to go and visit with her a couple of times prior to surgery. It almost felt like we had not missed any time. I felt it but it was just a sweet time of visiting. We don't ever do that. Jim's sister, Kris and his brother, Michael all were here and it was so very good to see them. I hadn't seen them in so very long. Of course, his Dad, Mike was there and that is always a treat. The family is doing just fine and ready to take Sue home I am sure. She had posted on her facebook that Jan. 10, 2010 was the a day to start again. Well, HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUE!!!!!!!! Life will be different but it will be a good different. Lots of new perspectives I am sure. Of course, I am happy to share all of my Tofu ideas with you......hahahaha
So where does my "choice/choose" come into play with this?
I could have chosen to call only one time.
I could have chosen not to call.
I could have chosen to stay out and not be "involved".
I could have chosen to keep my mouth closed because I am not a part of the family.
I could have chosen to not send out a call to all the Prayer Warriors that I know.
I chose to make many phone calls and text messages
I chose to call the first time.
I chose to be involved because she is still in my "family"
I chose to talk about and ask for prayer because she is part of the family.
I chose to send out a call to the Prayer Warriors.
Do you see? Do you see what your choices do? They make a huge difference.
Let's take it to something that is not as major.....say....work.
I could have chosen to say NO yesterday when I was asked to do something.
I could have chosen to stay home in the event of this horrible weather that was coming.
I could have chosen to voice my opinion at work about having to be there with the coming weather.
I chose to say YES, even though I wasn't happy about it.
I chose to go to work because nothing was happening outside.
I chose to keep my opinion to myself because it was not that important
Does it make sense?
Do you get it?
I realize it is only January 11th but "choice/chosen/choose" are HUGE for me.
Tell me about yours!!!!!!!!!
