Chapter 10, Page 22, Book 10

May the sun shine, all day long,
everything go right, and nothing wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you,
and may all the wishes you wish come true!


Many of these WISHES are not just wishful thinking and many of them are within our reach.

I wish I were big enough to honestly admit all my shortcomings.

I wish I was tall enough to tower above all negativity.

I wish I was strong enough to treasure love.

I wish I could believe that I am making a difference.

I wish I was brave enough to welcome criticism.

I wish I was compassionate enough to understand people's limitations and human frailties.

I wish I was wise enough to know how precious my blessings are.

I wish I was humble enoughto admit when I've made a mistake.

I wish I was human enough to forgive someone who has hurt me.

I wish I was enthusiastic enough to get the really important things done each day.

I wish I could pray for those who need some help today.

I've been stocking up for the cold days ahead. You know I'm going to be doing a lot of hibernating here at my house when it's cold outside this year.

I found a some sales this week when I went shopping so I thought I'd share them with you today. October is pasta month and one of my favorite stores Aldi's always seems to follow through with special dates as they had loads of pasta right inside the front door

I also visited Home Depot and stocked up on furnace filters. I always change them once a month as it improves your heating considerably.

Then at JoAnn Fabrics I found that the yarn I like for making my friendship shawls was on sale too so I got enough to make at least 5 more. I did give away the one I made to a friend for her birthday so the next one I make is for me. After that I'll be making more for either Christmas or more than likely birthday gifts.

I hope your Friday is a FANTASTIC one, I know it will be one here at my house as Mr. Wonderful is coming to visit.

good for you finishing that shawl, Ma, bet your friend loved it!! The other yarn looks very colorful too!! I liked your list of "wishes"; those are easily attainable if we "work" a bit on them I do believe!!

our weather is cooling down finally so I'm thinking of pasta meals myself in the next few weeks; yum!

enjoy the weekend
