Sweet Things

Trying to keep my thoughts positive and of sweet things since Valentines Day is coming up. But despite all the gloomy rain, feeling deprived of sunshine…etc… it’s been hard, but I try. From working on our taxes, such a dreaded chore;  to a stopped up kitchen sink…both of which I have recovered from. After all the numbers were crunched and a bottle of that drain-o stuff;
All’s good!
There are certain things in life we MUST deal with. There are times I don’t know where I’m headed, but I know I’m headed somewhere. I just pray somewhere is good. I’m on to the sweet things in life.
Life is sweet!
When I’m gone from this earth and have made my way to heaven, I want to be one of God’s angels that have an assignment back on earth…you know like on "Touched by an Angel".  I want to return with a mission and instructions from God to help some lost and weary soul find their place. That would just have to be so rewarding and sweet; plus they get to zap from one place to another in a matter of seconds…and they have that angelic glow over there heads! So Cool!

Here’s a sweet thought and vision stuck in my head. My daughter Holly has a young kitty…Baby D. He ate tomato soup the other night. She said he lapped and lapped so hard that he splattered soup everywhere. After he was full-o-soup he looked up at her with red soup spots all over his little face. LOL Can you imagine the site plus imagine a cat eating tomato soup! Oh yeah...he loves boiled peanuts too and hates to go outside! Strange kitty! Here he is with a sweet clean face:

My sweet little friend Southern Cinderella presented me with another award.
She had this sweet message for me:
"Cora at Heartfelt and Homemade* I started reading blogs about a year ago and always wanted a blog of my own, but felt as if my life was boring or I had nothing interesting to talk about. I saw Cora one day in WalMart and we started talking about blogging and how she has one. Cora told me I should create a blog. If it weren't for her, I wouldn't be Southern Cinderella! Thanks Cora!  ~ Lindsay"
Thank you Lindsay for those sweet words…and I’m glad you finally jumped into the blogging world with me. Isn’t it fun?  She is young and fun...please pay her a visit!

Now for a sweet thing that was pretty bad. I made some cookies the other night…The Gooiest Chocolate Chuck cookies. Sweet they were, Gooey they were not! They turned out too cakey like. So I will not share the recipe...I will spare you all.

Remember Valentines is just around the corner. Get your cards ready to share, make your list and buy your stamps. Remember that sweet one in your life, young or old. And who doesn’t like chocolate? Chocolate of all kinds: with nuts, without, cream in the center or maybe a cherry...dark chocolate, milk chocolate, mint, raspberry, or Godiva. Ok have I got your sweet tooth’s attention yet and started a craving? Warning: Just don’t make The Gooiest Chocolate Chuck cookies!

And who doesn’t like to be loved?

We all have ups and downs in life.  Be they sweet or sour; happy or sad.  
Hopefully mine will be valuable lessons which will mold me
into the person Christ has hoped I would be.
When you are down to nothing ...
God is up to something.





My word for 2010-Experience
I’ve experienced sweetness.

Booooh for grown-up things!
Sometimes I find myself responsible for this and having to fix that, and then I stop and wonder, when did I turn into a grown-up?!
Great post. You are such a positive woman.

Your blog is a sweet thing! I love the little kitty eating tomato soup - when my now 15 year old cat Stanley was a kitten, he used to love graham crackers. Cats are a sweet thing, too!
