and, i want to thank all of you who have already singed up for my drawing, and welcome any new comers to the stone house.
i have been thinking.
an yes, i know that in and of it's self is an amazing thing, but in the last few days i have once again realized how much i have to be grateful for, and how little i show that gratitude.
my life is so full and rich and yet sometimes i whine and feel sorry for myself.
anyone else do that?
i really like to think of myself as a "glass is half full" kind of girl, but sometimes i am afeared that deity may have reason to call me "the whiner"
do you know,
along with the words grateful, thankful, gratified, contented, satisfied, pleased, appreciative, and delighted, are linked words like, rude, indifference, thanklessness, self centered, ungrateful, and cruel?
so there ya go.
i am inviting you to join with me in a simple challenge.
for the next 10 weeks every time you post, to add to that post a blessing that you're grateful for.
this is week one, beginning 12th of oct. week 12 will end dec. 19th.
what do you think?
are you up to this challenge?
i am going to post a link on my side bar, an if you choose to follow this challenge, grab the link and add it to your side bar and invite your peeps to take the " gratitude-attitude challenge" with us.
lets be able to say , i'm drinking from the saucer because my cup is running over .
a week ago, one of our son's horses got out on the highway and was hit late at night by an 18 yr old driving home with a friend and his 12 yr old sister. we have no idea how the horse got out, no fences down, no gates open, the other horse was still in the pasture, anyway the horse was mangled and killed. but the blessing was, that none of the kids in the car were hurt more than scratches! when you live rural place like we do, you know the guy who owns the horse, and you know the guy who hit the horse, and they're all a part of your everyday life. what a blessing these three kids were not hurt!
now, for some goodies. you should go visit Bakerella , and get this fun recipe for cowgirl cookies.
don't they look yummy! i bought some pink m&m's and we are going to "bake an take" some of these goodies tonight as part of our home eveing.
how fun is this?
an grab the button for your side bar...

wrong. but i do like to eat! :-)
and don't forget to enter my drawing if you haven't already done so....
