Being Grateful




Today was such a strange day. Feelings were high, then low, then high, then low, ok, you get the point. I had to pause and remember all of the things in my life that I am so grateful for. Sometimes we rush through our days and don’t even have a second to think. I’m realizing more and more, that doing just that isn’t healthy. So here ya have it, some simple things that I am grateful for:


My husband, who no matter what loves me unconditionally.


My Family, who I miss dearly.


My Spiritual connection to something bigger and larger than me.


My friends back home (Omaha), who are irreplaceable.


Our cute little home (that we rent).


Today I know that I am loved.

An App Every Mom should Have


Erin Newkirk is the genius behind the Red Stamp app, and as a working mom with a million things on her to-do list and an iPhone as her co-pilot, she came up with the smart idea of sending cards from your phone via text or email. You can choose from hundreds of well-designed digital cards, and many of them are photo-driven, so you can make it that much more personal with a shot of your kid waving at grandma or showing off her Halloween costume. I do not have children yet (working on it), but I’ve downloaded this app because of the great idea behind it. I’m busy with work, not children at this point in my life. Everyone can use a good, useful app.


P.S. It’s free!

Wotan Wednesday


The mid-day of the week is named for the Norse God, Odin, who is associated with poetic and musical inspiration. He was also known as Woden or Wotan (spiritual God). Unlike many of the other days of the week, this day did not correspond roughly with the Roman designation for the day. The early Scandinavians and Germans believed that Odin was the chief God of Asgard and as such deserved to have a day of the week named for him. The Anglo-Saxons used the word, Wodnesdaeg (pronounced wohd-nes-dag). Odin was also known to be the leader of souls. That alone makes Wednesday my favorite day of the week.


Happy Wednesday!


ps Let us try to recognize the precious nature of each day.

High Above The City



 


 


On Friday night we decided to venture up towards wine country. Taking the 154 25 minutes up into the mountains, you arrive upon a secluded, desolate road, called Stagecoach, make a left and you will end up at a place called Cold Springs Tavern. It’s so serene and peaceful, you feel like you are in another world. We got to see some old friends (and new), who the mister used to play in a band with.


Thank you Santa Barbara for another fun-filled night.
