Positive thinking helps....

right?? Someone tell me it does!! Sunday started the week off perfectly. We had a sermon at church that really spoke to me... (if some of you don't know, David has started playing guitar at church on Sunday mornings). Anyway, I came home thinking alright... this is going to be a good week. We made a decision over the weekend about a job opportunity that I felt good about.. the day was restful...watched some Ranger baseball... then Monday came.. and while it could certainly be much worse.... we got some not so great news about our house, which really had us bummed... then Tuesday.. new day right... some more not so great news from our attorney over Matt's case. Matt was involved in an auto accident on the way to the attorney's office... and the negatives are keeping me from focusing on the positives.

Also on Tuesday, Jessica was offered a contract at the school she has been long term subbing at, for the special education position. She is very excited... a weeee bit nervous... but ever so excited. She really loves the school there and has bonded so with the kids already.

So, I'm thinking more positive thinking will help... and it's a new day... and it's going to be a great day. I'm meeting a man at noon to see about getting some trees trimmed back, and I'm feeling positive that his price is going to be the same great price it was last year!! So, that's that... and positive thinking, with some praying goes a long way!!

Below you will see my next layout for Project 12. Yes, I know it is for April 2011, what are you trying to say?? I was at a recent retreat and managed to get several months done. At next months, maybe I'll get it finished. ha... who am I kidding... think there are about 150 wedding invitations waiting to be made. **sigh**

It was a fun layout to create... and looking at it makes me smile. Not because I love it so.... but because it was created about 3 am, with very little sleep the night before... and there are things I put on there backwards! You just have to love it!! I did use some washi tape on it!!

Thanks for stopping by and listening to my rambles! :) :) :) :)

You know... we could help with those invitations. I'm envisioning an assembly line. Work is much faster with friends!

Ooooohhhh...monthly retreats? Nice!
Love the layout! Great colours in both the pics and the layout.
And yes, positive thinking DOES help! It's amazing how even a little chant like, "it's not forever, it's just for now" has saved my sanity.
Happy, positive thoughts to you and your family!
