This week I'm thankful for

Yep, this was on the list last week too, but we had a big stormy day & I was even more glad to pull in the garage to get out of my car & not having to make a mad dash to shelter.

Surprise Lunch
Loved getting a text at 7am asking if I wanted to meet for lunch from my beautiful Church Sister, Mandy.  She popped into downtown to meet me & it was just the break I needed in the day to catch up & chat & laugh together. I just love this incredible woman so much!  She just SHINES Jesus!!!

MMAB Group
We had to skip our last Women's group with our wonderful host being on vacation so it was great to be back together to catch up on life & talk about prayer & encouragement

Calendar pages
I'm on the fence about using my Plum Paper planner or the Happy Planner - which I'm EXTREMELY intrigued by... I bought all the Happy Planner stuff while it was on sale & had a Michael's coupon. So which do I use for 2020? My work sister uses her Happy Planner & she "Frankenplans"... y'all - that's a word that is used in planner communities. Have you ever? I love it!!!  But its taking multiple planners & mixing them up - because you can do that with a Happy Planner.  She had an extra November & December so she let me use them & put in my planner so I can give it a try before 2020 to see if I am feeling this planner. Excited to give it a try!

Good nurses
My mom had to go to the ER & was then admitted last week & she just had the kindest & sweetest nurses. I always tell them all when they take such good care of here that I'm always in awe of people who can do that job. Not my calling. So grateful for those it is!

Medicare / Insurance
So thankful that mom's Medicare & Insurance helps cover her little stay in rehab to strengthen her up.  I dont know how people survive - literally survive - without insurance.  It's a crazy world we live in.  Sickness, aging - all big business.

When we had to find a rehab for mom to go to, I am so glad that you can go to someplace like Facebook & put the word out for recommendations.  They came in pretty swiftly & a lot of people agreed on certain places.  Experience is the best recommendation there is & I'm grateful for people to share their thoughts.

What are you Thankful for this week?

  1. I am thankful for my garage too. Hubs and I are thinking about downsizing and we halfheartedly look at houses (or condos) that go on the market nearby. One of the things I must have in any new dwelling is a garage. After having one for 35 years, I don't want to go without!

  2. Choosing a planner is huge.
    I love setting up my new planner every year--and I've already been pushed into starting 2020 because we're starting to schedule things... unbelievable.

  3. I hope your mom is ok! I think you should use two planners, lol.

  4. I'm glad your mom is getting the rehab she needs and had caring nurses. Healthcare and insurance are just crazy. Happy Halloween!

  5. It is nice to have a resource like facebook when you are in need of recommendations. It is really the only thing it is good for lol. Hope your mom is doing better!

  6. I LOVE surprise outings and ANY time spent with friends! Thanks as always for hosting!

  7. I love my garage is attached to the house, sure makes it nice in bad weather. I think it's a disgrace that our country doesn't help more with medical expenses. I don't mean by paying our bills, I mean surely there's a way to curb the high cost of being well. Hope you're MoM is doing well!

  8. So glad your mother is being taken such good care of. How do people live without insurance?

  9. We don't have a garage anymore, but do have a lovely attached carport so we are protected from the elements. When we had a garage all we did was load it up with stuff so it's ind of nice to not have that option anymore. LOL I am happy your dear momma is getting some good care so she can get home and be well again! Prayers lifted!

  10. Hope your Mom is okay or on her way to okay!

    Surprise lunches are great spirit boosters.

  11. Oh, I wish I had a garage! Actually, I have one, but it's too short to fit our car. Plus, since we downsized last year and my husband no longer has a shop, he uses part of the garage as his shop. I sure hate scraping the windshield on the cold winter mornings.

    Good news that your mom had some great care and that she is recuperating nicely. The aging parent thing is so hard. It is excruciatingly painful to see our loved ones age and begin to slow down.

    Blessings to you,

  12. hell yes to planning using different looks/pages etc. I do that all the time.

  13. So much to be thankful for. Keeping your mom in my prayers.

  14. Good nurses and doctors make a hospital visit so much better! I WISH I had a garage :)

  15. I am thankful that I made it through the week. Having good medical insurance is a wonderful thing.
