Day 11 Daily Affirmations


This pic is from about 6 or 7 years ago. It was the last time I had a real Christmas tree. I did not put my tabletop artificial one up yet this year.

Today’s positive affirmations: first a quote,

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”
― Martin Luther King, Jr.

A few from Twitter:

When you have control over your thoughts, you have control over your life.

When you change your habitual thoughts, it is like changing the direction of a train.

Those three should be plenty to fill my mind today as I keep chugging along.

Surprise, I Have a Grandson!


They were told from two sonograms it was going to be a girl. The shower was girl themed. My son started filling out the baby book with the girl name they had picked out. When my son called he told me I had a grandson, I thought he was joking. I was laughing, but I am just happy he is healthy and mom is doing ok too.

I went to see him yesterday, because my son has appointments today and tomorrow. It is a two hour drive one way. I am a very tired grandma. I had fatigue bad today, but I pushed through. I had to walk up stairs at my son’s appointment because the elevator was broken. I managed to flip my mattress over, put medicine in my dogs ears, and list a few things on Ebay. It took all my strength. I have to do more listing tomorrow, I need a lot more sales. I have to figure out health insurance disasters too. I am glad I had milk for my son to eat cereal for dinner. I will probably not cook tomorrow either.

So days 9 and 10 of my daily positive affirmations are over.  I am positively wiped out…lol. Day 9 affirmation, “I love being grandma”. Day 10 affirmation, “Just do it”.

I will try to start up the daily affirmations tomorrow morning.
