~ Thursday Thoughts ~

Isn't that the truth?

What would we do without friends in our life?  I consider each of you a friend and so appreciate you!

I don't want to lose any of you either.  Seems that Blogger is making another change to the platform. Basically, you may not be updated  with blog posts in the future.

Would you please consider following by email?
You may have another way that works for you and that's fine...just don't want to lose anyone.

More good news about Brandye!!  She was able to go home yesterday ~ can you believe it?  She will be going to an inpatient rehab facility now...I believe it's from 8:00 - 3:30 p.m. M-F. They will pick her up and take her back home. The other day when my daughter and I visited, she had been walking with the assistance of  _______ not sure of the medical term but it's a type of walker but more sophisticated. God is so good!  Thank you a million times over for all your prayers and good wishes...please keep them coming.  

Please continue the prayers for John, our Diana's husband and for Carol as she goes through treatment.

Did you make any resolutions? I don't although I do want to return to healthy eating and exercise.  I've been a lump recently and just ate whatever felt good. That has to change. :)  I think we all have the urge to clean and organize and perhaps work on those projects that have been delayed. Just enjoy your days, do what you can and what makes you happy. Don't place any unrealistic expectations on yourself or your family. Time spent with loved ones is more important than any project!


  1. Prayers for all those you love....
    and just about the time things get comfortable, Google has to change things up and it seems it's always for the worst....:(

  2. Good news about your friend! May God bless her as she continues her journey toward health and wholeness! Happy New Year Pat!
    PS Sometimes Google is the pits!

  3. Great news about Brandye:) God blesses us daily! I didn't know about any changes but I too don't want to lose touch with my blog buddies, including you! I will pray for John and Carol! Enjoy your evening dear Pat, HUGS!

  4. Such good news!!! I'm continuing to pray for Brandye, Diana and her hubby, and Carol too. I don't usually make resolutions either, but I am trying to make healthier food choices. Just today I stocked up on some skinnypop cheddar popcorn, smart ones frozen meals, and skinny cow candies (because I HAVE to have some kind of sweet daily) :)

  5. Hi Pat, Yes, I believe this too and have seen it many times over. Lovely post and wonderful to hear about Brandye. We are keeping the prayers going for all.
    I'm with you for a healthy start to the year. With the holiday's we had some fun and spoiled ourselves with goodies. Time to get back on track for me too.
    I posted about google too yesterday. I lost 38 followers in just a few minutes before Christmas. I thought I did something to send friends away but realized it was happening all over blogland due to non google accounts.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend dear friend. xo

  6. I shutter to think of what my weight would have been if I had not loss a few pounds before Christmas. I just put it on hold and gained half back but at least I have only a little to get back to where I was. Yes, I didn't worry about it. I just enjoyed my family and eating is always an event. Happy New Year to you, Pat.

  7. I've been wanting to eat better in the new year too, Pat. My weakness is chocolate. So good to hear this today about Brandye. Yes, I think about Diana often. Our blog friends are truly special, and there are a few who remind me of angels on earth. :)

    Have a lovely weekend, Pat.


  8. Hello dear Pat! I am home from a vacation and wanted to tell you how lovely it was to find such a nice card to welcome in the new year. Thank you for your thoughtfulness. I myself use the reader "Feedly" to keep up with my favorite blogs. It's free and fairly easy to set up. Have a fabulous weekend! I am gearing up to start another semester of school on Monday. :)


It makes my Heart happy to hear from you! Thank you so much for taking the time to say hello. I want to respond to each comment, however, if you are a "no reply blogger" I can't. Would love to have an email address to contact you!
