I am hoping everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
We spent time with family and enjoyed conversation and laughter.
It is special to be able to spend quality time with those you love.
At the same time, my friend's brother lost his battle with health problems and another friend's mom passed away also.
This holiday has been full of ups and downs. Its these types of situations that make you appreciate what you have and to not take things for granted.

Be thankful for each day.
My mom has had a bury her son.
I have had to bury my dad.
My niece has had to bury her mom.
All of these make you see how short life is and how we need to enjoy each day as we have them.
Please be thankful this holiday season.

This weekend I did a few things I never figured I could do... I installed tile which turned out cool but was a pain. And then I installed a new kitchen sink. I am not petite so fitting under the cupboard was not easy. Unfortunately my separated shoulder has felt the pain. My arm only goes in certain directions and this was not helpful. My shoulder hurts and I wake up with my hand sore and swollen, as if its pinched. Guess I will need to call my chiropractor. This cold damp weather doesn't help but maybe I'm just getting old? Or maybe just sore and falling apart?

I worked for a manager, whom I looked up to, until he said he didn't complete his bachelors degree because he "didn't have time".
That made me look at him differently... no time? He was married, one child in the military, one in high school, and one in middle school, while holding one job.
I just graduated with my bachelor's degree, after 4 years full time, while being a single full-time mom of one teenager, working a fulltime job, working a part-time job, being on church council, teaching Sunday school, holding other positions in the church, and being a part time consultant.
Don't tell me about having no time.... since I am applied to start my masters next month.
People just need to know what they truly want to accomplish!!!! If you want it bad enough, you will make time! Its not a reason, its an excuse.

All I can do is put myself out there and let them know I'm interested if something comes up. I can't rush the process, but I do have several people backing me so that helps.
I have mentioned my interest and now its time to just keep moving and do what needs to be done.

My son had a down day last week. He hadn't talked to or texted any of hid friends for almost 2 days.
I had to explain that he shouldn't take it personal.
I would give just about anything for even a day without contact. I like my "me time" and don't mind the quiet.
At first he couldn't seem to understand that, but I think once he thought about it, he got it.
Its amazing how our feelings change over time.
