The Green that Makes Me Grin

miniature poodle and stuff toy
My contribution picture to OGIF orange group and Friday Greens.
I think this qualifies for the orange or green group My dog snowball's picture, the mean one but cute He positioned himself under the giraffe this one day Like something for comfort or warmth, I can't say I was moody that morning but yet I had to smile Upon seeing him so cute I could not just deny
If attention, he wanted, he got it alright As he helped me turn a dark day from gloomy to bright
Do you feel blue like me at times spending hours and hours or money to make you happy? Sometimes I waste time looking for apps, books, websites, clothes, makeup, food . . . that would make me happy. I end up buying a few things and not use it.
One day, I was down and low. It was hard to focus that I literally had to write each task I needed to do at the moment because I lose track easily and forgot what I was doing. Then I looked on my side to the living room and there was my miniature poodle, Snowball, tucked under the giraffe stuff toy's butt. I thought he was so cute I had to smile. His image reminds me to take things lightly. I cannot change a lot of things I have no control of. But smiling actually makes my tasks easier to do.
Of course, taking care of a dog is costing me too but he is (with my other dog) a very much available therapy for me. I do not have to make an appointment and dress up to leave the house. He is right there, following me everywhere even to the bathroom!
I should take more pictures like this that put a smile on my face.
What is your quick happy therapy?

  2. Wonderful lyrics, sensitive thoughts expressed! As a "happy therapy" as you mention above, I think that photography is a pleasant way to find some happiness/positivity... Greetings and Have a great day and weekend!

Charity and The Garden of Gods

The alphabet this week is the letter C. What words inspire you to write? Today, I am thinking of:

CharityClimbCanChurchChoosingChangesChoiceCharity MilesChildContribution This statement from church sticks to my mind this week. God wants us to want what he wants.

Is that like I want my teens to want what I want not simply do what I say without putting their heart into it? You betcha.

I'd like them to do good for themselves, nourish, not harm--their brain, body, and soul. I'd like them to put focus in school and pick good friends. I'd like them to be, someday, self-sufficient, and be helpful members of the society.

God wants us to helps ourselves so we can be of help to others. God wants us to be generous. It's only last Saturday, that I was convinced I should give more to charity andchurch. The right time in my definition will never come as I would probably never be satisfied with my income and expenses. But God wants me to give to others. In my preference, it would be …

Forcing Myself to Express Gratitude

Hello. Hello. Here I am again this week. Back with a thankful post, I did not feel like writing.

My oldest child (18) surprised me with an old car he bought a few days ago--a Dodge Stratus 2003, sedan, with a sportsy look. Never mind the paint that needs to be redone. That is just cosmetics. But the windshield has cracks in two spots. In addition, the front tires are bald, and the first time he introduced it to me, it did not even start.

"Oh, I must have left a light on."

Maybe.

The car is operable again but I am still nervous. He was supposed to work today at 4 pm, I thought. At 3:45 pm, I got hold of him. He was about to drive from a park to home. He said he'd go home to change his shoes before work. Half an hour later, I could not concentrate. My head is hurting and I was almost certain he got into some kind of trouble.

He came home for a couple minutes. He seemed OK. He works at 4:30 pm, he said. I wished he would have told me earlier.

Communication. We need to talk…

Amazon Fresh Review

The letter of the week from ABC Wednesday is the letter A. For the lack of ideas, I am writing about the new (to me) grocery delivery service through  Amazon called Amazon Fresh. I promise I am not getting paid by Amazon for writing this post.

How timely is that that I have just received my first grocery today with Amazon Fresh. What did I order? See the picture below including five grocery items not included.




Here is a review based on my first try with Amazon Fresh Grocery Delivery by Amazon in Denver, Colorado.
Pros:

One advantage of using the service is the convenience. I ordered online without having to walk the isles of the store and standing in line waiting for the cashier. The groceries are delivered right to my front door--kinda like the Uber or Lyft for my groceries. This service can attract home-bound adults, busy folks, or some people with transportation issues, like, maybe college students who do not have a car. I am thinking I can do this to friends who are sick or old who…
