Sunday, October 10, 2010


I was going to wait until my 600th post to do a giveaway, but when I woke up this morning and realized it was Oct. 10th, 2010.
I knew it was going to be a good day.
1 Today was the last day of 'the 9th birthday weekend extravaganza' for Sydnee.
2 Today is my nephew's birthday. {very cool to have a birthday today}
3 Today I am grateful for sacrifices made years and years ago so I can enjoy this life together with my family.
4 Today there is hope for new opportunities and possiblities.
5 Today the weather is beautiful. The leaves are gently turning colors and I am soaking in the feeling of fall all around me.
6 Today I have memories of wonderful friendships.
Friendships that are spread across the country.
Friendships that only get to meet face to face once a year if we are lucky, and I am lucky & blessed today.
7 Today laughter is abundant. People get pretty silly when they are away from each other and reunited once again.
8 Today my toes are purple and painted.
9 Today faith endured.
10 Today is a good day. Simple, but good.
So the soundtrack for today came from Mindy Gledhills' new CD: Anchor. It is my absolute favorite right now. There are so many songs on this CD that I feel are written just for me.
I also think that you might find something for you too. So......leave a comment and I will giveaway a copy of this lovely CD for someone special. {random, but special...giveaway will be closed Friday 10/15 at 9 am.}
Sydnee's favorite song: Whole Wide World.
My favorite song {for this moment}: I Do Adore
