I painted these sled ornaments for each of my grandson's. I did paint a different one for the 3 newest little boys but forgot to get a picture. I'll have to see if one of my sons will send a picture to me so I can show you later. Tomorrow I'll show you what I painted for the grand daughters.
Over the years, I've found that our emotions and our money, prey upon us countless times each day.We see people in advertisements looking beautiful, young, sexy, and happy while using various products and we want to feel that way too.
But there are a lot of ways to boost your moral with out spending loads of money. Very often what we already have are our best sources of feeling the very best we can be.
For instance I get an immense amount of joy from the act of blogging and I send out a daily e-mail fo my friends and family. Living alone it gives me a way to keep in touch with all of them. Being a lone is a way of life that I don't recommend to anyone but this is the circumstance of my life right now. We are supposed to bloom where we are placed and doing this has become a challenge to me. I have accepted the challenge and try to make the most of it.
Crafting keeps me busy creating and knowing that I'm making something for someone else always makes me feel good. I love giving and making things allows me to do it.
Reading opens doors to things outside my world too. I love reading for pleasure and reading to improve myself spiritually too. Books are available reasonably when you shop thrift stores and when you have friends that share their books with you too. This Christmas my family gifted me with a Kindle. It will enable me to read lots of things and I've heard they do have lots of free books on Amazon to download too. I've not used it yet but it won't be long and I'm sure I'll have it mastered.
If you can find those things that make you feel good that don’t cost anything and spend your spare time focusing on those things, not only will you be happy simply enjoying what you like, but you’ll feel good later realizing that you didn’t spend any money.
True wealth is not in the things we have but in what we do with what we do have. Things like family, friends, faith, home are the things I consider to be important in my life.
Focusing more on what is abundant in our lives ALREADY is the best way to generate more abundance. And remember that sometimes our time line and the God's time line may be different.
So on this WONDERFUL Wednesday, I do hope Your day is one full of WONDER too.
It is there if we take the time to look.
