Diamonds In Hay Stacks!! Gratitude of Everyday Moments!!

Adventures Of Day

Hello fellow bloggers and friends!!

I just thought that I would take a moment to discuss today’s events and feelings of the day with everyone.  I hope everyone is having a great week!

Today, I went out and about town and ran errands and it was a beautiful day outside.  I just wanted to soak in the sun – one things about depression lack of sunshine makes it worse – winter is the worst time for depression. That is why I take vitamin D!!

I went out for lunch with my best friend and then we went for coffee and caught up on our weeks events. She is a true gem!! I would be lost without her 🙂

After I went to bring my dog for a walk with our neighbors and friends who have a dog named Radar around Schumacher (just outside of Timmins) and then went to let dog run around school yard with my friend Terry and her dog Pandora.. Poor Mr. Shadow is soo sleepy now and ready for bed.. But he needs it and loves it!!!






Today was Jody’s birthday (my hubby) – he turned 39 years old today!! Happy Birthday Baby!! On his birthday, he loves going ice fishing – does it every year, so it is just me and Shadow tonight.  I made a cake for him for his birthday and tomorrow we are going to have friends over for cake.. My way of saying thank you for being an amazing husband!!







Spring is a time of renewal, so I am taking it that the universe is telling me that I need to renew and restart myself on a new chapter and embrace challenges and handle demons head on.



I am learning that it is time to embrace and express gratitude for daily moments more frequently and that my purpose in life seems to be to help and to heal others.

A new chapter starts only when you are brave enough to turn the page – so onward and upward and here’s to new starts and chapters to write!!
