June Sunshine Finds~ June Joy Dare

June Sunshine Finds

Day 17~ June Sunshine Finds me looking forward to yet another exciting day! Up somewhat early to have morning coffee which I always find as a small slice of sunshine. Getting ready to meet Mandie Ambs and her beautiful children at the Grotto for a morning walk in the peaceful sanctuary of the gardens. The real joy was sharing the morning with the children and Mandie and getting to know them better. ♥ Loved watching them run and play. Walking the Labyrinthian with the kids was wonderful. Seeing things through their eyes is amazing. I loved the seeing all the flowers in bloom. Having a quiet lunch at Popeye's and reflecting on the goodness of the Lord. Home to more tranquil moments before hubby gets home. I would say I have many sunshine finds and moments as I reflect on all that is good and wonderful. Thank you Lord!
The other really big piece of sunshine in this day was the chat with my brother as well as my nephew. Loved talking with them both. Miss them and love them so much. 

Day 18~ June Sunshine Finds three haircuts on my sheet today when I get to work! YEA! And of course one shampoo set. Making them the sunshine beautiful with some clips for the warmer weather and a new look for the week. Smiles for everyone! Home early as it doesn't take long to do haircuts. Some quiet moments and prayer time with Crystal N Koch! Makes the world look brighter and more cheery! Thank you for the encouragement and prayers my friend! Then a movie with hubby. We watched "Moneyball" with Brad Pitt. I really liked this movie it was good! Now some quiet time as the day comes to a close.

Day 19~ June Sunshine Finds me awaking to the smells of coffee brewing what could be sweeter.  Today's sunshine was hidden in puffy grey clouds with peeks of blue sky. My phone conversation with daughter today about up coming trip brought smiles of delight with many prayers. Posting photos for Mandie Ambs was a joy to me today. It over all was a very quiet and peaceful day which is a gift I love and treasure everyday.

Day 20~ June Sunshine Finds me up with the grey skins of sunshine. The morning was full of beautiful ladies getting their hair done for the week. Done early and lunch with Mary McCormick Loomis sharing and catching up. Thank you for a lovely afternoon. We went to Cash -N-Carry never been before! WOW! Thank you Mary for this little find that will bring sunshine for sure in the pocket book. Then a surprise knock on the door brings me tears of answered prayers. My old neighbor who was in a mess of affairs has been in recovery. I didn't even recognize her. Looks so beautiful and happy! keep up the awesome work beautiful lady and Praise God for the work He has started in you and will see to the end of completion. I applaud your accomplishment and the beauty that shines through. The best gift of the day seeing her smiling face an answered prayers. ♥ :) ♥

Day 21~ June Sunshine Finds us searching for rainbows. It was a full busy day at the salon. Making smiles that are better than the bucket of gold at the end of the rainbow. Because they are the rainbow of life each one. New styles and oh yes the dreaded favorite little red rod perm. Yes there was glimpse's of the sun trying to break through. But through it all today we found our own rainbow and sunshine.

Day 22~ June Sunshine Finds me up early and ready for some fun adventures with friends. A beautiful drive to central Oregon for a rock show with Mary McCormick Loomis and Edie Ricker Cowell! A wonderful breakfast at ZigZag! Then laughter never stops. Enjoyed learning about rocks and getting some as a gift! Sitting on my fireplace mantel. Sunshine and giggles all day from start to finish what could be better? Looking for the ruby slippers and the the lost Mt Hood. Inside joke but oh what fun! Never a dull moment when we seize the day!!

Day 23~ June Sunshine Finds waking to early morning call from number one daughter about up coming travels. Which does bring me great sunshine in my life. Making arrangements for my granddaughterSummer Harris to spend a few weeks with us. YEA! She will surely bring laughter, joy, and sunshine into our life's. Then working on little business projects and completing some goals. Laundry done for the shop and home is truly a blessings. That one seems to be an ongoing blessing each week. Watching the Killing series with hubby!

Day 15~ June Sunshine Finds really was an amazing wake up call from sisters inviting me to the beach for the weekend. How can a girl turn that down. So up and running I went to get ready for the adventures ahead of me. Time with family is always the best gift to me. The sand between my toes. Little silver dime find on beach. Laughter and memories made. Playing in funderland with the kids. I think I liked the Wheel of Fortune the best. Watching them get excited about the tickets or I just want to play.

Caves, rocks, sand, sea life, and so much more. Taking lots and lots of photos with the camera. A wonderful lunch at the house after exploring the cove. Then loading up for the drive home.

Day 14~ A gift unexpected, unwanted, unlikely
So these are not exactly easy today. Especial since I wasn't really looking for them today. Hmmmm................Lets see...........

My unexpected gift is actually one of my clients today. Ann She doesn't come in much and her nephew treated her to a wash, cut and blow dry. Included was a really nice tip. I as well learned a bit more about Ann than I knew before. She was a school teacher, in the mission field. Lovely lady!
Unwanted would be all the wet dirty towels! More thank usual as I did cleaning while Marge was under the dryer today. So more towels to clean means a clean salon; along with lots of pretty hair-do's.
I also can say another unwanted gift was me trying to fix my blue tooth and phone. Which I did! So a good learning experience.
Unlikely gift was me at the bank in a long line. I usual don't go that late in the day. It was a very unlikely adventure for me. Enjoyed getting banking done and getting to know the new teller. Lots of laughs as I explained how I hate their new system as they do too.

June Joy Dare
Day 15~ 3 Gifts in His word
1) Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD.
2) For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
3) “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

June Joy Dare
Day 16~ 3 Gifts moving
I think this one is great for me this weekend!
1) The waves of the surf moving in and out of the beautiful ocean
2) My great nephew Trey (Tag) as he is learning to move on his own. Rocking and crawling on his own. Getting so big he is. ♥
3) As we roll down the highway from the beach to home. Moving from the peaceful beach back to real life at home.
Thank you Lord for the get away.

1) My little tennis shoes that I wear with my Capri's and other Summer clothing when I am walking or going to work so I don't have to wear my bulky tennis shoes. I think they are ugly but others think they are cute so they can be beautiful!
2) Some of the attitudes of others then watching them change when treated different or ....... from ugly to beautiful!
3) My phone that I am clearing out is becoming more beautiful as I believe it will work better once it has all things cleared off it. I think it is ugly and then someone will call and makes it beautiful even when it doesn't work right. (Need to get fixed or new one)

May Joy Dare Day 31~ 3 Gifts you gave today

1) Helping my client remember her youngest son today and who pays for it and where she comes every Friday after breakfast.
2) Drying clients hair with blow dryer even though I could have sent them out wet. They were just shampoos. Making them look fresh and cute with a little style and shine in their hair.
3) Sharing important information with my neighbor to help keep her safe and all of us in this complex.

June Joy Dare

June Joy Dare Day 1~ 3 Gifts orange
Not going to be easy as I can tell you I don't recall orange in my day. Bit I will think of something orange three times I'm sure.
1) My orange tube of Mary Kay night emollient cream. Such wonderful cream indeed. Just lathered myself with some on my body.
2) On the covered bridge we visited today there was graffiti underneath it that some of the painting on it was orange. Not sure that was a gift....but it was orange. The bridge was amazing and enjoyed the beauty there.
3) There were little orange flowers or something growing wild among the moss on the brick wall where the bridge was. The beauty was breathe taking and so peaceful.

June Joy Dare Day 2~ 3 Gifts funny
1) Me talking on the phone to Mary McCormick Loomis today and being so out of it and so disconnected. Mary must of wondered who this person was. Rest does wonders! I can only imagine how funny I must have sounded on the phone.
2) Thinking I could pull the covers over my head today and not get up and go to church. God wasn't allowing that at all. I kept rolling over and never felt comfortable until I got up and started getting ready for service. Perfect fitted word. Rolling back over and going to sleep not so fitted.
3) Me falling asleep typing at the computer and nodding back up and hitting more key strokes. Why to funny. Trying to stay awake and type at the same time. Gives new meaning power naps; and not missing a beat. So I think!

A Holy Experience

Ankle X-ray
April 30,2013
Sadly this is as good as it gets for me according to the doctor.
I will have to live with the swelling and pain.
I have permanent damage done to nerves and tenants
as well as muscle.
There is calcium build up.
Pain caused by the tissue around the scar area  where the plate and screws are.
Thank you for all the love and prayers of support.
I cannot afford second opinion.
But am grateful I can walk.
Below are two fundraiser links to help with medical bills. 
We have no medical insurance to cover medical.
As the weeks have gone by since I have started back to work
The ankle continues to have many issues
The cost of second opinion is much more than I realized
Doctor has discounted my pain meds
Many issues
Needing God's direction
With many prayers 
I feel God is showing us
The direction to go.
God is faithful and I trust this is going to be paid in full;
and every need meet through Him
Thank you!
