I'm thinking...I must be busting menopause wide open because...Everyone around me has an attitude problem. My husband is suddenly agreeing with everything I say. (because he's scared not to)
Everyones head looks perfect for batting practice.
I can't believe they don't make a tampon bigger than Super Plus.
I'm sure that everyone is scheming to drive me crazy.
I have no doubt that the dryer is shrinking everything I own.
The ibuprofen bottle is empty and I bought it yesterday and I'm considering selling our heat pump at my next yardsale!

Outside my window...I'm still seeing the quiet rest of winter but anticipating the coming of Spring and with it worse hot flashes!

I am hearing...The sounds of morning, coffee maker, shower running, and Mr. Jacksons rooster who must have gotten into my backyard again, we may have roasted rooster for dinner.

I am wearing... Are you kidding! PJ's it's too early to be dressed.

I am thankful...For all the family and friends that were with us this weekend to celebrate Liz's Birthday and
the Super Bowl.  Espceially for all the memories we made.

From the kitchen...I'm  hiding, I didn't get all my dishes done from the party, BUT sweeties off today and doesn't mind helping me, if he wants to keep breathing!  LOL Thank God for terrific husbands.

I am creating...An enviroment at work that feels like home and family.  I praise God for everyone I work with and that God has blessed me a job that I love.

I am going... To go to a ladies Valentine Banquet tomorrow night and reconnect with some friends I use to go to church with.

I am reading... My husband mind these days, so he better watch what he's thinking.

I am praying and believing...That God will heal a young girl we know who was rushed to hospital Sunday. For God deliver a young man from a horrible situation.  That God give us direction regarding a new concept at work and that I don't fail to do all God has for to me do and see my family through my menopause.

On my heart this morning...Will you be His Valentine?   Thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob, and He who formed you, Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; YOU ARE MINE.  Isaiah 43:1
     On Valentine’s Day isn’t it fun to dig through a bag of those little candy hearts that have the words printed on them? They say cute little things like “SWEET”, “CUTE” or “HUG ME”. But the one that I like the best says, “YOU ARE MINE!” Isaiah 43 gives a beautiful picture of God saying those exact words to His beloved children.  Even though they had wondered away from Him and he had to discipline them, He declares, “Don’t be afraid! I made you and I will take care of you. You are mine!” Then, as their loving Father, He gives them the promise of His presence, His protection, and His provision through it all.  Ephesians 1:3-14 says that as a believer in Christ, God the Father does the same thing  for you. He created you, He redeemed you, and He calls you to Himself saying, “You are accepted in the Beloved — in essence, “You are Mine!” As a loving Father cares for His children, so He cares for you day after day, week after week, year after year. He loves you! You are His!
I hope that if you never thought of yourself as being His Valentine that you will this year, He loves you so much and He has called you by name, He wants to be all you need, He wants you to rest in Him and to trust Him, He wants you to know all is well and that He is taking are of you.  He wants to be your Valentine, the love of your life!

I'm hoping...That God can use me in the lives of people I've never even met.

Around the house...I am surround by memories of the wonderful life my husband I have built together with two wonderful boys.

A few plans for the rest of the week...Try again this week to get my Valentine Cinnamon Apple Jelly made,
and  spend more time on tread mill and start planning something for my 27th wedding anniversay to my very best friend.

From My Picture Journal...

Me and My Best Friend!


  1. I understand what you are going through with menopause. My family left me quite alone. One time I yelled at the cat for purring too loud. The poor dear.
    Prayer does and will help.

    i yelled at the cat for purring too loud. The poor thing.

  2. Hi! I've enjoyed reading your blog today and I hope you don't mind - I'd like to use your idea on Valentine's day (from the simple woman's daybook) and the scripture in an AWANA devotional....

  3. Enjoyed my first stop by your blog. And, so appreciated your thoughts on Valentine's Day and will ponder that all week. May you have a wonderful week!

  4. Great blog! You have given me the giggles with your take on menopause! It sounds to me like you are keeping high spirits even in the midst of turmoil (hormonal turmoil, that is). Feel free to remind me of this when I get there! I will be praying for you and your family---and trying out some of your great ideas. Many blessings to you.
