Goodbye Week. Hello Weekend. Lessons Learned: Take 82.

Goodbye busy week volunteering lots of time at the school: admissions, parent tours, parties, whew!
Goodbye being reminded how lucky we are to be in this wonderful school community.
Goodbye getting motivated to clean the house by purchasing fun, new cleaning products.
Goodbye Valentine's Day Dinner in an elegant, quiet, quaint little spot - our dining room.
Goodbye yummy Valentine's Day treats from Grandma Campbell's  - sooo good!

Hello indulging in caramel apple popcorn, cotton candy popcorn, Dichotomy popcorn, chocolate-covered pretzels and marshmallows - uh, oh diet!
Hello chocolate chip pancakes and bacon (when you fall off the dieting wagon, you gotta fall off BIG).
Hello looong, 4-day weekend - what to do, what to do?
Hello throwing in a couple of those pajama days.
Hello Christening for a precious baby boy we can't wait to meet.

My lesson learned this week is that you must have faith, a strong faith, to know that blessings will be bestowed upon you when you need it most. Blessings won't come early. Blessings will never be too late. Blessing arrive right on time. But, blessings don't come around for nothing. When you give, then you also receive. When you are a blessing, you are blessed. It's about equilibrium of the Universe, I guess. Sometimes blessings are paid in full, but sometimes they are incrementally distributed over time like dividends, but it all equals out in the end.

May I encourage you to be a blessing today and make your deposits? The interest earned is greater than any rate promised today from your bank. Have a terrific weekend.

Hi Lilly! Thanks for the love - every day - and I'm sending you hugs too. This long four day weekend, may I suggest joining us online for the Great Backyard Bird Count? :)))) Yes, it if family friendly and oh so much fun (not to mention a great way to walk off some of the calories from Valentines Week - I'm speaking about me of course!)
