Deepest Sympathies

I had every intention of coming on here tonight to complain about what a horrible week I've had. Instead, when I opened my email one of my very dear friends had emailed me to say that her father had passed away. Nothing that has happened this past week could possibly be as horrible as what she is going through right now. Please visit her blog here and offer your condolences if you feel so inclined.

In addition to posting my own (not so) private pity party, I was going to lead into the things that make me happy and help me get over the blues. I think in light of my friend's sadness as well as the other sadnesses that have happened this past week, I should still post my favorite things (think Maria in The Sound of Music). I hope that everyone else's week was better and that you continue to be blessed.
"I simply remember my favorite things, and then I don't feel so bad.

1. Your comments really do help me when I'm feeling down. They're always so sweet and uplifting. I don't know what I would do without you guys.

2. This...

and this...

3. A good book and a glass of chocolate milk (or hot tea)

4. Planning a second honeymoon for my husband and me
5. Checking out this blog... too funny

6. Watching this video

7. Listening to this song and this song

8. Handmade items like this and this and this

9. Taking pictures of my cats laying in funny positions like this

10. Wearing a flower or feathers in my hair (it just makes me feel pretty)

Thank you guys so much for sticking with me.

I will share with you that my son was married today to a lovely girl and this makes us all very happy. It was a lovely wedding. I will send you a slice of virtual wedding cake. See my post.

Tulsa Gent - Congratulations on such a happy occasion! I loved the jigsaw puzzle this week!

Kristin - I especially love when the babies are my practice babies!

Peanut Butter Swirl - She wasn't happy because she knew I was making fun of her when I took the picture.

Your cat lies like that for real? That's too funny!

K @ Blog Goggles said...

So sorry about the rough time! You sound like a good friend.

And your kiddies are adorable!

Sunshine said...

Megs - Usually she lays on her back with her tummy all smooshed out. She kind of looks like someone flattened her into a pancake. The boy cat knows not to lay in funny positions lest he get laughed at too.

K - Thanks very much. Those are my best friend's babies, but they might as well be mine too since I see them so much.
