First, if you haven’t heard about the rat who is now causing all of us Proverbs 31 office gals to live in fear, please take a look at this photo album on my Facebook page. I think it will give you a good laugh: Fearing Templeton When you get there, click on the first picture and take the time to advance through each photo and read the captions. Just gotta laugh!
If you are on Facebook, I’d love to be your “friend”. Just invite me. I love connecting with other sistas on Facebook for a more personal look into each other’s lives. Melissa’s Facebook Page
Same with Twitter. If you tweet, I’d love to connect with you there too. Melissa’s Twitter Page
Just a little info on my FB and Twitter. It’s real, raw, and it’s me. Some don’t like what I post because I don’t just post about any one subject, I post about everything…depends on what’s on my mind. And often it has zero value to anyone else. But I have fun with it I’m not obsessed with these things, but they are outlets I enjoy. I’ve met many dear dear friends on FB, Twitter, and on my blog. In fact when I look through all the cards and encouragement that came my way during my Mom’s illness, many are from people I’ve never personally met. Blows me away. I just love it. Love my friends, seen and unseen <3 (there’s that sideways heart again!)
I know many people don’t like social medias such as Facebook and Twitter…and that’s ok. I say “to each his own!” We all have our thing, if it’s not yours, that’s alright with me.
Before I go, I just have to tell you something. I spent a considerable amount of time yesterday just reading through the comments posted on my blog over the past week. THANK YOU so much for taking the time to write a message to me. What you share not only means a lot to me, but often it encourages someone else. I was extremely blessed and my heart <3 touched by the prayers for me and the thoughts you shared. There is not a comment left here that goes unread by me. They mean so much.
Well, it’s time to toot my own horn again. This week I’ve walked a total of 18 miles. I’ve counted my points (on Weight Watchers), turned in 2 devotions for publication on the Proverbs site, and blogged I think 5 times. I can’t tell you how great I feel. I still have quite a ways to go in the weight loss venture…oh my that’s always a struggle…another story for another day I weigh in at noon today and I’ll let you know how it goes.
Hey, toot your horn too. What are you doing for yourself? What did you accomplish this week? Share your blessings with me
And Have a Beautiful Weekend!
***Edit. It’s Friday afternoon, 1:52 pm. I went to my Weight Watchers meeting and I GAINED 1.4 POUNDS!!! I just knew I had lost weight because I had been a good girl this week! (there’s a devotion there somewhere LOL!) Anyway, I vented to my WW group and they were so sweet and encouraging. I even cried. (what a loooooser!) My beautiful leader, Mary Beth, had me feeling much better by the time I left. I went from crying and craving fried chicken to confident and coming back to my office to eat my cheese ravioli which was planned.
What do you do when your plans don’t succeed? I just wrote about it earlier in the week. You try try again. And so I persevere. (any Bible verses come to mind here? Uh-huh!)
And hey, what’s up with only one person (Thank you sweet Joy) sharing their blessings? Come on, I’ve shared with you, now you share with me. That would bless me greatly! (if you don’t want to it’s ok, I’m just kidding)
Bye now and have an awesome loooong weekend!
