Fabulous Fun Filled Friday!

I'll start this wonderful day off with my continuation of 1000 Blessing's Friday....


121. I've been able to leave my home twice this week and venture out into the real world! People, when you've smelled the same room for nine months and go outside for the first time it is so refreshing. I couldn't get enough!


122. I had surgery last year to remove a kidney stone and the bill was astronomical. I've been paying on it little by little. I received a letter yesterday that said the hospital offered me 100% financial assistance and was wiping the rest of the bill clean! I cried I was so happy. I've never heard of such a thing, have you?

123. With the weather changing from 91 degrees to 58 in a matter of two days I wound up being extremely sore and stiff. But I made sure I kept warm and I took one extra pain pill to help get over the hurdle and I am SO much better today!

124. The sky is full of my kinda clouds today! You know. the big fat fluffy kind! I think I even saw an alligator in one of them.

125. I've got to see my man, Donny, all week on television. HeeHee!

126. I've been released this week from home physical therapy. I still have to do my exercises three times a day, but the therapist won't be coming.

127. Getting paid by customers on time has been an extra huge blessing.

128. My husband and I are going to get away for a weekend trip here pretty soon! I am so excited for the both of us. We will probably go to several antique stores and eat all kinds of bad stuff we shouldn't!

129. I'm surrounded by a loving, caring family. How can I not be blessed?

130. And realizing my blessings each week just makes me even happier than I already am!



Friday's Feast


Appetizer


When was the last time you were surprised?


Well, if you read my blessing above you'll see that I had a really nice surprise on #122! My husband is always coming home with a little surprise for me. It can be a can of NOS or a new little flashlight that's blue....doesn't matter. It's nice knowing that he thinks of me when he's out and about.


Soup


Fill in the blanks: My eyes are ________, but I wish they were __________.


My eyes are filled with tears from yawning, but I wish they were clear so I can see what I am typing!


Salad


If you were a Beanie Baby, what would you look like and what would your name be?


I would be an extra soft, blue, chubby bear that when you pushed it's tummy it would laugh. My name would be Blueberry Giggles! How cute do I sound?


Main Course


Name two things you consistently do that you consider to be healthy habits.
Drink sugar free NOS...teehee! Okay, I'll get serious....
1. I brush my teeth at least three times a day and floss.
2. I've switched to all whole grains and whole wheats. Bye bye sourdough bread. I miss you!


Dessert


What brand of toothpaste are you using these days? Do you like it? Why or why not?
We've been using Colgate with something extra in it, I just don't know what. And yes, I like it very much because I like my teeth and to feel clean and my breath to smell minty fresh!






My sweet friend who I adore, Christine gave me this award the other day! She thinks I'm fab-u-lous! Now I have to admit I kinda like it! Hey, I'm not gonna lie. I'm trying to be totally honest with y'all. Plus it's pink and blue. How cute is that people? Now I have the honor of passing it on to five others that I would call fabulous darling......drum roll please......


Amy.....not only does she have a fabulous name, but one thing I love about her is how much she loves her husband! She's very supportive and I can tell is a real encouragment to him. They've just celebrated their sixth anniversary and I know will be celebrating a lifetime full of them!

Dianne....is fabulous because we share a lot of the same loves....being an aunt, Donny Osmond and Jesus Christ. Just by reading her blog you will feel like she's your friend that you've known a lifetime.

Southern Girl....we also have a lot in common. She loves her man Clay as much as I love mine. She loves her pets just like I do. She's lost a lot of weight...which I still need to do! I think she's fabulous because she makes me feel all kinds of emotions. One day you'll laugh until you're crying or one day you'll just sit and have a good cry with her. I can't wait to meet Southern Girl, whether it be here or in Heaven!

Goofy Girl...was one of my very first blogging friends and took me right under her wing. I think she ROCKS and is fabulous because she is such a go getter. I think she has a lot of spunk and good work ethic. She's gonna be a fantastic doctor here very soon. I think I better make an appointment before she's all booked up!

DeeDee....she's my girl. She makes me laugh so hard I have to p*ee. Yes, she is that funny! But there's more to her than just humor. She has a heart for God and raising her family in His eyes. She's been an encouragment to me when I was feeling at my lowest. I know she's my friend.

Thank you Christine! I think your FAB too!

Have a FABULOUS weekend everybody!

Aww, I don't know that anyone has ever called me FABULOUS before! Thank you, Amy! And I'm looking forward to meeting you someday, too!

Dianne said...

Your blog just makes me HAPPY! I love your continuing list of blessings. I found myself smiling and shaking my head about several of them, then of course, when I got to DONNY, I had to giggle. You are my kinda friend! Then to read on down and see that you'd passed an award on to me...WOW! What a nice surprise! I guess you noticed on my post earlier in the week that my first best friend's name was Amy, huh? How cool is that? Thanks for the award, but most of all thanks for having a great blog. I always leave here happy...and that is a great thing!

Goofy Girl said...

I love your list of blessings and I'm so sorry to hear you had to have surgery. I have had kidney stones twice and you have my complete and total sympathy!!

Thank you so much for your kind words and your prayers a week ago at Donetta's place for our little girl during her illness. She is back to her old self as of yesterday and I am so grateful for your kindness and your prayers! I will be praying for your continued recovery from surgery.

Woo Hoo! I hope to be debt-free some time in my lifetime. It's not looking good, though. :-(

I can't even imagine being confined for so long. How so you stay so positive?
