65 Day Journey

Day 34

Here we are on the last day of November.
I cannot believe we are the the way out of 2011.
It seems we just got started and here we are at the close.
My goodness!
Where did it all go?

It has been a very full and busy month.
I'm sure the month of December will be busy;
 If not more busy.
As December is filled with much activity and something always to do and somewhere you have to be.

I say make sure to take some special time for you.
This is the time of year that we stress and over spend.
We tend to put more on our plate's then we should.
Take a moment and get your calendar out.
 Then make an appointment or two or three for self.
Maybe the hair dresser.
Pencil in about an hour and half, get the works.
Maybe at the end of a busy shopping day;
Go and get one of the mini manicures with a pedi for 30.
It will take about 2 hours of your time.
Pencil in a hour for a hot bath with salts and hot tea.
Don't forget that  candle and soft music.
Shut out the world!
That means the entire family.
they will be fine without you for an hour.
Or maybe it is just shutting out the world and spending time with the Lord for an hour;
After one of those crazy days.
Don't say yea I do that.
Get the calendar right
Set up at least three appointments to take care of you this month.
You will have a much more pleasant Christmas season by doing so.
It will relieve the stress make a much more happier you.
Your family will love you for it!
Because you wont be stressed!
Some would say that is selfish.
I say ,
To give our best we must be our best.
So with that being stated.
When we take care of ourselves we can give the best of ourselves.

Today was a very full day at the salon.
I didn't wrap up until after 3.
My cleaning wasn't the best today.
I was so tried.
I made out bills to families.
Made arrangements for perms for family members to be there.
Some are no longer able to really handle a perm.
So I think if the family takes the responsibility it is best they come and sit with them and sign a waiver.
If they demand for their mothers to have perms well come and sit with her please.
Thank -You!

The Pastor over at the Assisted home is so
In fact I think I will call him self absorbed.
He wants me to schedule all my appointments around his schedule.
Then the doors close.
I cannot accommodate that.
I cannot move a standing appointment for a lady because he wants another to be in chapel.
I really need to pray in this area.
I also have never felt this way about a man of God.
It makes me feel awful!
Lord help me to pray for him.
  Lord help him see I cannot do what he wants, that is impossible.
Thank you Jesus!

Nothing seemed to get done on my list today.
Tomorrow is a new day.


Psalm 51: 12

Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.

Devotional Card

Dear Lord, help me not to overlook the giving of thanks to you before I begin asking.

Psalm 84: 11

"The Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly."

Day 30

I'm so glad to have been part of this thankful month and journal for the entire month of November.
Made me realize I have so much more than I think that I do.
So much to be thankful for.
For the opportunity to be a blessing in my hair salon even when it is difficult. 
To be kind to those who are harsh and mean.
For the laughter and smiles given out daily and those received back as well.
For the Christmas music I love so much.
The peace and direction the Lord leads when I settle down and listen to His voice.
The warmth of my home and the love that is all around me.

Does anyone specail thing state out from the month of November that you are extremly thankful for?

Hi Bethe. What a lovely post my friend. I so agree that people just have to try to make som 'me' time in order to recharge their batteries, and to prevent them from suffering from too much stress.
