I have so much to be thankful for. Not just during these few days of the year when the focus turns to thankfullness, but each and every day. Even on the days when things are moving so fast I nearly forget to be thankful that the day happened at all!

Show Your Colors In The Sunlight With #DelSol Solar Color Changing Sunglasses


You don't have to be a kid to be fascinated with things that change color when exposed to sunlight light. I am endlessly fascinated by them myself! As a kid, I remember having rings and other little trinkets that changed from one color to another when I took them outside and thinking that was just the coolest thing! All these years later, I still think that! 
I was tickled when I was sent a pair of these DelSol Solar Color Changing Sunglasses to review! I chose a pair that changes from white to purple - my favorite color.

Thank You Veterans, For All You've Done

That there have been and still are men and women willing to serve and even sacrifice their very lives on my behalf, fills me with awe and immense gratitude. They aren't forced to do it. They just do. They sacrifice time with their own family, so that I get to spend time with mine. I get to wake up each day and do the mundane, the routine and ordinary things. The things I sometimes forget to be grateful that I get to do. And I get to do those things wrapped in freedom. It's because someone chose to sacrifice their time, their chance to do those things and instead stands up for me and every one else in the County of ours. Sometimes they even give their lives, defending my right to be free. That can never be taken lightly. 
Brigadier General Bob Stewart

This past weekend we got to spend time among some very incredible people. Veterans. It was so moving for me to hear them speak and to get to talk to a few of them. Thay are amazing people.

Do you save glass bottles and jars then find yourself not knowing what to do with them? There are several things you can do with bottle just by painting it, covering it with something or turning it upside to make a bottle tree.
If you want to take it up a notch, you can cut bottles and make them useful in other ways. I received the AGPtEK Bottle Cutter to review and it is really neat.

This Live Infinietly Double Camping Hammock Makes Me Want To Live Outside!

This post contains affiliate links

I love being outdoors. The sounds of nature are so calming, you can just get lost in it. As much as I like my technology, I also like to get away from it sometimes. You don't really realize how much noise all of it makes until you are away from it. The silence can be deafening!

My Reminder to Remember My Blessings

I cried my way through a blog post today. I don't mean my eyes got misty. I mean real tears, rolling down my face to the point I had to stop to wipe my eyes before I could continue. I don't know why. Well I kind of do.. it was a bit of a sentimental morning. I had already seen something that got me weepy and then this story caught my eye. It was a brief update from Rory Feek about his wife Joey. I wasn't aware of their situation, but there was a link to his latest blog post, so I clicked over....

Within a few sentences the tears were rolling. I don't know these people. I don't listen to their music. Not because I don't like it, but simply because I hadn't heard of them. Until now. Maybe you know of them. Maybe you're a huge fan. Maybe not. I only know what I read today: that while pregnant with their daughter, they discovered Joey had cancer. She waited to start treatments so her daughter could live and be born healthy. It appears that as Joey started treatment, things looked promising and she felt good. But a day or so ago at a doctor appointment, they were told that despite the treatments, the cancer was growing. Fast. Apprently her body has stopped responding to the treatments. She decided to stop treatments and spend whatever time she has with her family. 

I was reminded today how utterly blessed I am. I'm like most people. I have some issues. But reading that post..... I just felt so deeply for these people and what they are going through. The immense decisions they have had to make recently and will have to make in the coming days and weeks. The tremendous bravery. I can not even imagine being in their shoes. It's the kind of thing you would never wish for anyone to face. I'm not particularly religious, but I found myself whispering a prayer for these people.  

All day since reading the post, my thoughts have drifted back over the years I have have had with my husband, the trials and triumphs we had together until finally, after 10 years of marriage we were able to have our son. I have been so blessed in so many ways it is mindblowing. I am so thankful! 

I can't imagine the nightmare situation the Feeks are facing every minute. They seem to be facing it with much more bravery and grace than I think I would. I think most people HOPE they can be stoic and brave in the face of crisis. I'm just not absolutely sure I could. I hope I would, but I can't say that I would with any degree of certainty. 

I hope that by some miracle, Joey gets well. I hope she get the miraculous happy ending that allows her to be here to hold that baby, watch her grow... right now the one thing I am certain of, is that reading about what they are facing, has made me stop to be grateful for the irreplaceble blessings I have in my life. I need to remember that every single day.
