A new day...

I don't remember where I found was saved to one of my files. I didn't really have any new pictures to post about today. I have been so busy with work that I haven't even taken any new ones. When I saw this, I thought it would be the perfect thing to post about today. I've been feeling a little stressed out the last couple of weeks and it has shown in my everyday interactions with my family, friends and coworkers. I just wanted to take this time to apologize to anyone that I may not have been as 'available to' as normal. I've just had a lot going on with work and getting my son moved to Tennessee and everything else in between.

I just want to thank all of my friends that have been there for know who you are. I thank God for everything that he has blessed me with. When I am at work today, I plan to show each of my customers how important they are and let them know how much God loves them. So many people out there are having it hard financially. I have been working on my budget and I plan to not spend a dime on anything that is not a necessity. (Not even thrift stores!) I want to be able to have all of my bills paid at least a month in advance. Just a little cushion so that I can be less stressed out. I will still have many, many projects that will keep me busy without spending money! This will be the perfect time to clean out my storage buildings and clean out my closet and take out things and donate! I'm ready to get rid of clutter! I feel like I have so many things that are weighing me down. I hope all of this makes since to y'all.

Have a great day!

Love that! I think it's a great idea to go on a spending challenge. I find it hard to stay out of the thrift store as my whole family likes to go on the weekends! But I really wish you success. It'll be good to be so far ahead on the bills that it'll be worth anything to have that happen!

Hi LL,
I am so in agreement with you about spending unneccessarily. I would rather have a cushion than any new "thing" for pleasure in the moment. We pinch as well and it's a good thing. You never know. We just had to by the boston terrier a drug for $40.00. I don't mind as they bring me such comfort. My car needs two tires. These things can add up but I know the good Lord is there to help guide us.
Don't worry about being to busy. Just don't forget to time for yourself to wind down.
Hugs to you both. Tammy

Hi LL,
Yes, I know what you mean...I get very over-whelmed at times.. But yet, I have learned to just deal with what I can, and live each day at a time.. I can't look at everything ahead of me to do..That's what just puts me over the edge.. way over.. Always remeber to let go and let God, when you can't make it through !! He is my only true, faithful source.. Blessings to you as you pace your self sweet friend !!
hugs ~tea~xo

Good on you! It's good to have insight & realisation of when & where we need to make changes sometimes. I 'm sure you have great friends that will help you through the tougher times knowing that you would do the same for them. Knowing us aries women, we are very resilient so look out when you bounce back, twice the woman.
