Happy Easter!

Happy Easter Everyone!

This week I was very short on time to blog. Thankfully I was able to help out Gavin with his Garden Party at school...very last minute. This week I get to go on a field trip with him to a one room school house. Believe it or not, it is actually the school house that my father went to as a child. A long time ago, I went there with my father. It was awesome to see everything, especially because it was still in it's original state. Now, the Historical Society has renovated it and shows it as a historical site. Still it will be awesome to go there with Gavin knowing his Pop-Pop went there. I will stay at the school and eat lunch with Gavin since I have the opportunity. Thankfully mom is watching the store for me.

Last night Buffy, Jenny and I went to Crossroads for dinner and drinks. We engaged in some very deep conversations. Nothing a couple toasted almonds couldn't get us through..LOL! There is a very deep connection that Buffy and I share. We are not sure why or how but we both acknowledge that it is present. When engaged in conversation last night, it amazed me that we are both very much alike and have witnessed some very similar past experiences. Although they were a lot of our bad experiences, we are thankful that we have each other who can relate. Some people just do not understand if they have not been through the same situations. And because of this, some are very quick to judge. Buffy, Jenny and I do not judge people by their past or their experiences. Nor do we quickly judge someone that we just meet. This is one quality that I am thankful that we all share. The other thing we share together is our attitude. All three of us try very hard to stay on the positive path. Of course we are all going through some negative situations, but we try to look at the good that will come out of them. This week was a stressful one, but tomorrow starts a new week. The best part is that we have each other to fall back on in a time of need. None of us are alone in any situation. I believe God brings people into our lives to help show us that we are not the only ones going through tough times. And, we are not the only person in the world who has had certain experiences. I thank God for each person he has brought into my life, even if it was only for a short time. Just remember, that we are in control of our lives. We have the power to change any situation...all you need is a positive thought.

What I am thankful for today:
spending the holiday with my family
my children
egg hunts
toasted almonds
deep conversations
life experiences
positive people
positive thoughts
