I do have something else I want to share with you... getting back to the whole "pressure cooker" thing at Christmas time... we women do put a lot of pressure on ourselves to get everything done & then we usually end up feeling exhausted & unappreciated... usually blowing-up at our dear husbands... here is a little encouragement I came across this morning...
This is written by Barbara Rainey -- "I think we wives need to give our husbands some grace...to not know how a woman feels, or how we function and operate as the other sex. I used to think, 'Why doesn't Dennis just understand what I'm going through? Why doesn't he do things the way I want them done?' But I had to learn that he doesn't automatically know where I am emotionally, or what I expect in different situations, unless I tell him. And if I come across as judgmental, he'll get defensive. I need to bestow some grace. Ask the Lord to help you understand that your spouse may do things differently than you, and give grace instead of condemnation."
When I read this it spoke to me & I felt compelled to share it because someone might read it that really needs it today... besides we all need to give some grace on a daily basis. Thanks for stopping... remember only 3 days 'til Christmas... with a grateFUL HEART, carin

I had breakfast with a friend today... thanks H... it was good to just sit & talk... we also went browsing in a couple stores... I say browsing because neither of us saw much that we liked... oh well you don't spend money that way!!!
Thanks for peeping... with a grateFUL HEART, carin

Did you all have a nice Thanksgiving??? Ours was great... not too much drama... it is always good when the "drama-meter" is low!!! *Ü*
I have a busy week ahead of me... and once again God is blessing Michigan with lots & lots of beautiful snowflakes... so it will make the going a little more complicated... but I will survive!
I know it is no longer a monday before Thanksgiving but I just have to add something more I am thankful for... I am so thankful for the good family God has given me... especially my parents who did the best job raising me they could (I was a handful at times)... since I am not a parent I don't totally understand why parents still feel responsible for their grown children... but what I do understand is that my parents may not have done the best job teaching us about handling our "treasures" here on earth, but they did a great job of showing us the Way to our "treasures" for eternity... isn't that what is most important anyway??? Thank-you Mom & Dad... I love you!
with a grateFUL HEART, carin
