Thursday Blessings

A very thoughtful Marleen M sent me this self-portrait layout she prepared using word art from awhile back. I thought it was great fun and absolutely fearless. Thanks so much, Marleen!

Well, here's my first complaint about the heat this summer. I've held back because it makes me sound like such a whiner, but I REALLY don't tolerate it well. Two of the walls in my office are mostly windows -- which I love -- but it does make it too warm in the summer. I know ... I know ... there are much hotter places than here in North Texas. I do know that! But I'm still HOT.

Whining session over. For now. :)

You know people, don't you, who are perennially cheerful? Downright chirpy, giddy, relentlessly happy?? Some days I just want to hit the mute button! Having said that, I admire people who have the ability to bring sunshine into the lives of others, even on the gloomiest, saddest of days. I think it's a spiritual gift, actually. For those who are genuine about it, that is.

I thought of those people when I prepared today's word art. I know many children who bring light to my world as well. Hope you can use this. And, as always, I'd love to see your work.
Thursday blessings,
Melanie

Oh, we will never think you're a whiner hon..LOL! Complain all you want. I don't like some months of the summer too. It's too hot then and you are irritable, sweaty, tired, your low blood pressure are lower and some days it seem that some people crawl out of some place just to make you crazy..LOL!

Luckily it's winter here now, and I love it. Sending you some cold over so you can relax...:-)

Thanks for the cute wordart. Love it!
Hugs
