Our response to challenges shows our true colors.
After all, it's easy to be thankful when life is going well. But what happens when bad things happen and life gets hard?
This past week I've been busy. Since Heidi wasn't there, I got to work with Barcia. And as four year old Indira always says 'she's Miss Debbie's friend'. Barcia loves the children.
YouTube video of the song for her. She loved hearing the words 'Sara smile'. Of course, Brody and the other children had to gather around to listen to Sara's song too. :)
My next door neighbor Caroline is celebrating another birthday. So how does she celebrate? She hosts a birthday celebration of exercise! Caroline has been teaching a weekly exercise class at a local church for over 30 years. Maybe that's why she's in such great shape. She certainly looks much younger than the number of candles on her birthday cake.
What a fun evening as we did a combination of step aerobics, Pilates, weights, and stretching. Caroline creates her own tracks of Christian music. She also begins and ends with prayer. I loved exercising with a roomful of people of all shapes and sizes, ages and backgrounds. A little taste of heaven maybe?

I'm so excited about something that happened on Saturday. My friend Sue's husband Jim was able to work on my broken computer and he fixed it. My computer crashed in June, along with the book I was writing. It was in Word and I wasn't able to access it. I was so discouraged and have been trying to rewrite it from scratch. Well, now I have my document so I'm back writing.
I continue to count my every day blessings ...
