3 Things

Well, I am having a pretty good hair day today and I am thankful for that. LOL I figured my curls would have fallen flat in this hot, humid Georgia heat, but they are still in a long curl.

I am thankful for our VBS this week and it looks like a lot of family will be there tonight for Rhett's skit. I have to stop at the store to pick up another pack of buns and weenies now.

I am currently working on a doodling on a 3x5 card, but since it is not finished, I am not posting the photo here yet. Plus I have to have room on the digital camera to video Rhett tonight. It is sort of weird about this doodling though.... We painted thin wooden houses the night before last in the VBS class I was assisting with until I had to do it all myself last night. I drew my outline with a black marker 1st as the kids had already started painting their's with vibrant primary colors. Mine was a light blue house with white shutters, red curtains and yellow in the windows with green shrubs at the bottom of it. The kids all said, "Why didn't you make mine?" I told them they needed to make their own houses their way. A shrink would probably have a field day with my color choices. LOL One boy's house looks like it is covered in snow to me which was neat. My friend Cheryl gave me an neat explaination to give the kids about the positiveness of the yellow in the windows which I will do tonight. My doodling had houses with red chimneys in it too!

Last night I had to portray the woman at the well in our class. I should have asked Illy Nilly to do it since it used to be her sign on because she had been married so many times when she (believe it or not) hosted a bible study back when I first began working with her! It gave the other ladies a good laugh yesterday. I borrowed a PINK sheet from mom to wrap myself up in. I actually asked for help three times yesterday evening. I called our preacher's wife to ask if she had an empty milk jug I could borrow. She said she had a pitcher she thought might work. So I was thankful for Katherine. Because there was a two party conversation we'd been doing in class, I felt like I needed another voice to help me with that rather than changing my voice. I asked my friend Nancy to help me with that. So I was thankful to Nancy. I asked Donna to help me wrap myself up in the sheet and she did. Her daughter Savannah asked me why I was doing that. I told her I was the woman at the well and they used to dress in robes similar to this sheet. So I was thankful for Donna. I was proud of myself for asking for help for once rather than trying to do everything myself.

Today has been another good day for me as I hope it has been for you. Leah at her blog Creative Everyday, led me to other links particularly a neat blog where the blog owner posts 3 things that give her pleasure each day. So I thought about that.... It only took me a second to make a list of them and realilzed this is something I should and would like to do on a daily basis. Here are my 3 things that gave me pleasure today and probably will be repeated again and again and again...

* Reading a good vampire book, the 3rd in the J. R. Ward series of the Black Dagger Brotherhood entitled Lover Revealed.

* Creating some art even if is a doodling.

* Reading emails from friends.

What were the 3 things that gave you pleasure today?

What a great post. Sounds like you must have had a good time and good for you to realize that there are those times we..."get by with a little help from our friends". ;-)
Thanks for sharing and have a blessed weekend.

Thanks, Denise and southmsmomof4. I went to the laters blog. I just read the 1st page. It was about how her son's friend's mom's friendship was formed by God long before they ever met. Awesome thought. Her post brought tears to my eyes. I tried to comment but couldn't so I am commenting here instead. Hope she comes back and reads this.
