100 and Counting...

Well, this is my 100th post! I kept putting it off because I wanted to get something ready for a Give Away. I finally decided, if I waited until things settled down to get a Give Away ready, I might never get back to posting again! So I dropped the Give Away idea for now. I will be doing one sometime down the road... Please be sure to check back with me.

We have a touch of springlike weather today. It's in the 50's, windy but sunny right now, bit of rain earlier, and my tulips and hyacinths are beginning to come up! Beautiful! I am looking forward to even warmer weather. We have so many outside projects just waiting to be done. More changes in our landscaping, extending our original patio with pavers, repairs & paint on our fence, clearing our garage! I'm sure there are more that I haven't even thought of yet.

I had a friend spend the morning with me on Saturday. She gave me some terrific organizing ideas, and even helped me by tackling my pantry. It's shocking how bad things get when you haven't been feeling your best. It meant a lot to me. I was definitely at a stand still!

This morning when I got up and looked into my newly reorganized pantry, it made me smile. It also gave me a new energy to push my way back into living. Circumstances are not in my control, but how I meet them is. It's a step at a time, a day at a time. With God's help, and the support of family and friends, I can rise above my circumstance.

I wish you a beautiful day!

Wonderful 100th post. I know it is hard for you with the MS. People don't realize just how difficult even the small things can be for you. I'm glad you had a friend to help you with your pantry. Wished I lived closer :) Not that I'm great in the organizing dept. but I can make a mean cup of coffee and do dishes. So glad God put you in my life.
Love you Nita Jo and happy 100th,
