This Week

Started my week off by giving back. My church held it’s annual Rev. Jerome B. Price Scholarship Day–I am one of the committee members.  This scholarship is given to every high school senior at Carter Metroplitan CME Church who participates in church activities. Last year we had 3 young men, and this year we have 4 young ladies. Two of the  young men were able to come home and speak to the church, and the other one sent a statement to be read. The young ladies all participated in morning worship. It was a beautiful service for the memory of a beautiful man.

Later on that day I finished my planting. The flowers were already planted, but this year I also wanted to grow herbs.

Did I forget to say between all of this I cooked dinner?  Our youngest had gone to church with us so we had a wonderful time with her.

Later on I worked on a piece that my friend needs in her pursuit of being elected to the Arlington ISD school board. Trying to answer a thought-provoking question in 250 words or less is hard.

This week I will go to a Republican women’s luncheon as her surrogate to read a statement from her.  Can you believe it–me neither.

I have to go to exercise class since I didn’t make it Friday.  Hopefully he will have time to train me on Thursday too or early on Friday because I’m taking a girlfriends weekend to Austin with two of my college roommates.

There is also my professional life that needs attention too. For some reason I decided to throw something new into my classes, but I am sure it will work–maybe.

First though there is the hubby. I must make time to stop and smell the roses with him.

Life is busy, and most of the time I like it that way. Remember “thisisyourbestyear”.

Thankful

On Sunday after church we had family dinner at home.  There was no special occasion just all of us together enjoying each other. We had so much fun. I cooked, the girls cleaned and the men well you know, they sat. It was okay though, we just enjoyed each other.

I am so thankful for “family”. They are the joys of my world. Since Thanksgiving is coming up, here is your opportunity to win an “I’m cold! (I’m calling on the Lord!) tee-shirt. Just share with us what you as women of a certain age are thankful for at this time in your life.

I will announce the winner on the Thursday after Thanksgiving. If you are the winner and I do not have your email address, I will ask you to email me at: thisisyourbestyear@gmail.com along with your size and mailing address.  Be thankful because “thisisyourbestyear”.

Being a woman of a certain age I look forward to being at home especially when it is clean.I enjoy my time away, but feel good when I put the key in the lock. As you can see from the picture I am ready. I have my coffee ready, my favorite mug, the newspaper, my well worn bible and my Jimmy Carter daily meditations. All that is left is CBS Sunday Morning and my hubbys face when he comes in from church. I got back too late to attend Carter Metropolitan CME Church this morning, but if the Lord says the same I will be there next Sunday. Remember, “thisisyourbestyear”. Happy to be home.
