Oh What a Beautiful Morning, Oh What a Beautiful Week

Pictures of a Gratitude book, a funny book on butts, a happy baby after the butt issue. Things to be thankful for.

Hello. It is a busy happy week. I have many things to be thankful for. Here are some:
  • Free audiobook to listen to from Denver Public Library. This week I have The Grateful Life on my virtual shelf, accessible anywhere with my phone.
  • A smile from seeing a book for kids, however odd. It is a book about butts. Speaking of butts, I fixed baby Josiah's constipation. He was screaming in pain as he could not pass the darn, you know? His mom was crying too as she handed him to me. My daughter (auntie), said, "Thank goodness, he has a nurse grandma!" 
  • The after picture of Josiah, already smiling after "the incident."
  • Baby prune juice and food to prevent future constipation.
  • Church service online for the times I do not go. Today I virtually attended Alamo Church Community Church service in Texas.
  • Date night with Paul trying a different restaurant. I had shrimp tacos with Baja sauce. Yum.
  • This is a big one. I won a scholarship to a big nursing convention in Indiana. This is for the largest nurse specialty group I am proud to belong to, the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses.

  • A walk in the park. It is 52 degrees. Warm enough.
  • Laptops to get school and work done. Is it a blessing (or not) that we can take "the work" home? This week it is a blessing.
  • Window stick ons for easy, clutter-free Valentine's month decorating. We needed to replace the Christmas decor and our windows were looking bare without replacements.
  • I smiled when I saw some beers in the store named after me! Sour peach beer, anyone?


Ten Things of Thankful

  1. Congrats on the scholarship! Very cool. And, 52 degrees, funny how relative comfort(able temperatures) can be... we had similar temperatures on Saturday. Felt like spring.

  3. Yep! Prune juice is an old and tried remedy when all else fails. Glad Josiah is all smiles again.

    I've only had shrimp tacos once, and they were delicious.

    That is so exciting that you won a nursing convention scholarship! Congratulations!

Resistance

What resistance's about? We think we know We watched the media, and they said so The resistance's not fresh, but dark and deep Let's pray from sunrise until we sleep Whichever side we are on, our fate we own Stay kind, do good, we're not alone

Visit

Surrounding  Visiting Spending time with the people you love Takes a chunk of your time Yet the pay off is worthwhile I did these just yesterday and the day before While the days were bright, no rain, no pour So today it’s wet and we could not go out  I am thankful we did as we all look up

Six Sentence Story: Green Coat

He tore my green, soft, favorite coat, the one I wore so much. I felt I was not the one he wanted me to be, not anymore.  All good things must come to an end, or should it be just the bad? Clutching my torn coat and shutting the door in front of him, tears shed from my burning eyes. I said goodbye. It is his loss, not mine.
