My new necklace

I ordered a Dragonfly necklace off of Amazon a few days ago.  It just arrived and I'm really liking it a lot.   

Dragonflies symbols stand for change.  I am looking at changing myself into a more organized, adventurous woman.  I am taking on new tasks daily and doing well with my other daily tasks.

It is still early in the game to tell how well I will incorporate these changes into my daily life.  But I am encouraged.

Woohoo!   Watch me grow and watch me change.  I'm" on my weigh" to a slimmer, more radiant, adventurous Diva.

Water Aerobics Class

I went to the Aquatic Center this morning for my first water aerobics class.  I have been telling myself that I am going to do this class for over a year now.  I reluctantly went dreading the ordeal as I didn't know anyone and everything was unfamiliar.

I met several ladies before class and one was new to the class also.  There must have been 30 women in the very cold pool.

I did ok (meaning I didn't drown) but it will take a while to be able to do some of the exercises.  Lord give me strength!

Classes are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  I met one woman today who told me she has been doing water aerobics for 17 years.

Check one thing off my " to do list" for today.

My June goals are up and so far I am doing rather well to keep up with them.  

I am not lazy, nor am I driven by guilt to accomplish things at the expense of my health, my frustration level, or my good humor.

Mr. Wonderful is driven by everything that he should, could, or might need to do.  I think he is overwhelmed by all the choices and opportunities and doesn't want to waste any time on just relaxing.

Me....not so much!  I worked 25 years on the night shift at the hospital.  I worked 12-hour shifts and still was a full-time mom.  So now my body doesn't sleep much, I'm overweight, lazy and not highly motivated. ( Other than that...Life is good.)

I do better with monthly goals and am trying really hard to write every day, take more pictures, and be more encouraging.  I am trying to catch up on my grandchild blogs also.  Charlie's response to my organization, and writing..."You aren't dying are you?"  

No, but I still have lots of stories I need to tell.  Stories that are cute about my kids growing up that I'm sure they have forgotten.  Stories that I want to pass on to their children while they are still in my memory.

My mom is 91 and little by little her memory is slipping.  I enjoy telling her stories that she once told me as a child.  She smiles sweetly and says, "Did I really do that?"  My children and grandchildren do not really know her.  So it is up to me to write down our family history.

I need to do generational curses and praises chart for our family.  My kids need to know what curses and disease our family is prone to as well as all the good things.  So Lord keep me motivated.

Heart adventure

I am a very sentimental person.  I love watching Hallmark movies, even though I know how it will end.  I love happy endings, treats, thoughtfulness, hearts and flowers, and random acts of kindness.  I am definitely "a happily ever after" kind of girl.  

I was reading a devotion today from a book called "Devotions for the Hungry Heart" and she shared this story with her grandchildren that I would love to share with mine.

God shows us His love by showing us heart shapes in nature.  They are all around us and pop up in unexpected places.  I like to see them so He shows me them to me.  It's like a little note from heaven right in the middle of the day.  When I see it, I think about how much God loves us and I have a little party in my heart.

Had to laugh at the heart-shaped bum.

I loved the hearts on the wings of this butterfly.

Heart shaped rocks.

So my darlings, I am hoping to have some heart adventures with you this summer.  I will start collecting some I can show you and start taking pictures of the ones I find.  Don't be surprised if we go on a heart hunt adventure.   I hope you know you are always in my heart and never far from my thoughts.
