Thankful Thursday

I have so many things that I absolutely thankful for today, that I barely know where to begin.


1. I'm thankful that God reveals things to me about myself, partly I'm thankful because then I don't have to go through that awkward conversation about myself in regards to my misbehavior. And also because then He reminds me when I can do something different to change the behavior. You would be amazed at the things God would say to you if you're willing to listen, well at least I am

2. I have a beautiful husband who cares for me and is willing to deal with my bad attitude. He's a real winner. I love him and am so thankful that he agreed to hang out with me for the rest of our lives!

3. A dental office that really is concerned about more than oral hygiene, but also care for the person as well. They were so loving today. I was scheduled for a cleaning after Hannah had two fillings (which by the way are beautiful!) and they kept an eye on her an talked with her and had toys for her to play with. She was not a nuisance, which is a blessing! And the reason why my appointment was after her filling was because a. They understood that Hannah wanted me to be with her when she had her appointment. b. They recognized that Hannah might be overwhelmed if she were to have her teeth cleaned that day as well. So they saw me and gave her a later appointment.

4. I'm thankful that when I get down in the dumps and need to nap that it no longer consumes my life. I can rest assured that I will not have weeks on end of that kind of behavior, but instead will have an occasional off week and then by my normal hard working self again. Recovering from depression is something that I hope I NEVER take for granted.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together.

Tasty Tuesday: Roasted Broccoli

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest the other day that was labeled " The Best Broccoli Of Your Life. " I normally either steam our broccoli in the microwave or saute it with olive oil and red pepper flakes on the stove top. I decided this would be something to try. I did the salt, pepper and olive oil part of the recipe. I didn't have the majority of the other ingredients. In fact, all I had was a little bit of Parmesan  It was wonderful. Not the best broccoli of my life, but honestly, it was pretty close. And if I had the lemon juice and all that jazz, it may very well be the best. What have you been eating lately?

Together is a Beautiful Place by Bailey T. Hurley

  Have you ever wanted to be a better friend or been stumped by how to make your friendships more meaningful? If so, you might want to pick up a copy of Together is a Beautiful Place. Hurley does an excellent job of sharing ways to connect with people that you know and how to easily take your relationships from surface level to deep and meaningful parts of your life. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Hurley incorporates surveys and other data to give insight into relationship building. She shares that it takes 90 hours of social interaction to consider someone a friend. When you’re only seeing each other in passing, it will take much longer than when you carve out time to specifically be with people.  Overall, Together is a Beautiful Place is an encouraging and helpful read. Exactly what I needed as I continue to make friends in life.  I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for the purpose of review. I’m never required to say nice things about books but I’m always
