A Changed Heart

Kim’s Journey

Door Decorating 2 December 24, 2008

Well, it is quite amazing how a group can make anything difficult. Here are the rest of the doors in our contest at work. The judging was on Tuesday. People were laughing and carrying on during the voting that morning. Some girls wore signs that said “vote for door #___ and you MAY win a trip to florida”; others were offering similar “SILLY” things. We were laughing and joking, so I said “well, vote for me and I will get your paycheck done early”. The initial voting came in and I won. However, someone declared that I had tampered with the voting with an unfair advantage…..get real people and get over it!   It is not like they weren’t going to get paid before their regular payday anyway (Thursdays – which happens to be Christmas and we are closed) Well, there was not enough Christmas spirit in me to be jolly, so I just took my door out of the contest. So, you might say, I was not one of the ones who brought JOY to my own office that day (Door #3 on the first post was my door).   We were being silly.  Hmph. Okay, so here are the rest of the doors. The blue snow scene won.

Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.dsc04036dsc04037dsc04040dsc04041dsc04043


Door Decorating December 11, 2008

We are having a door decorating contest at work. These are the 4 that have been completed. Someone is coming to judge on Monday, December 22. What do you think? If I was as savvy as my friend Maggie I could put a voting button on here, but I will need lessons to learn all that. So, just comment and let me know what you think!

Thankful November 26, 2008

Tomorrow is the day we are “officially” to be thankful, but we should be thankful every day (like you really didn’t know that)  A few quotes that I have collected over the years……..

You cannot do a kindness too soon because you never know how soon it will be too late  (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch heaven (Johannes A. Gaertner)

If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul  (Rabbi Harold Kushner)

Things turn out best for people who make the best of the way things turn out (John Wooden)

The unthankful heart…..discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day, and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly belssings!  (Henry Ward Beecher)

and………..an unknown quote……..

If you haven’t all the things you want, be grateful for the things you don’t have that you wouldn’t want.

Happy Thanksgiving friends.

My husband and my daughter love making snowmen and sandmen.  Since this was a vacation without our family, he did not have her there to help him……..but here is this year’s version of a sandman.  It isn’t 11 feet tall, but he is pretty big and I think he enjoyed the hard work that went into creating him.  A couple of boys on the beach wanted to come help, so here he is………..pretty cool, huh?
