Thursday Thoughts

Wow! A few days went zinging by somehow. I didn't post for Tales From the Scales on Tuesday because I need new scales. Replacing the batteries didn't resolve the problem. Phooey!

Thought I'd get something up for Wordless Wednesday, but obviously that didn't happen either. You can go check out some other WW pix though.

There's some big news over at Sprittibee if you'd like to find out the lastest in their life adventures.

A dear 27-year old single mom is in tremendous need of prayer and encouragement. I found out about her via Especially Heather (who also needs continued prayer and encouragement). Please add Nicole and her son to your prayers.

I've just been in and out (mostly out) a LOT this week, it seems. As much as I try to get things done around the house, I'm not accomplishing much. More of a one step forward, two steps back kind of deal. Sigh.

Tonight I'm off to a rubber stamp club gathering. Should be fun and then we (Mom, my friend, and me) get to head over to Starbucks. Yum! My sister's working tonight, so we'll pop in and say "hi" to her.

Oh, I know I've mentioned sleep issues in the past and my mom recently told me about a wonderfully awesome thing to help. You just rub a couple of drops of lavender oil on the bottom of your feet before going to sleep (be sure to wash your hands afterwards). It really works! Really well! Hubby & I have both been sleeping SO well. It doesn't make you all groggy and goofy in the morning like the PM pain revlievers can. Even my mom, who has had some bigger sleep issues than me for quite awhile, has been sleeping marvelously for around 3 weeks now. Plus it smells good!

And no, there's no correlation between the Starbucks visit at night and sleeplessness! LOL! On those nights of insomnia, I hadn't had any caffeine since around lunch time.

That's about it, I guess. Oh, I need to get cracking on school plans for this year, as we need to start within the next month.

It's always something, but that's okay. Life may seem a little chaotic at times (from my perspective), but honestly, my life is pretty good really. Things could be so much more difficult. But whether it's easy or hard, chaotic or smooth, God is always there. He's always available, He's always faithful, and He'll never leave nor forsake me (or you!).

Blessings to you!

Thanks for the tip about lavender. I don't have any trouble going to sleep but I seem to wake up a lot.

I hear ya about being out but still needing to get things done at home. Weeks like that just drain me like nothing else. Hang in there! Enjoy your night out!

You're welcome, Gina. It works great! I was having a problem waking up during the night after not getting to sleep, too. I've only woken up a couple of times and I go right back to sleep. I've also been getting up earlier and better in the morning than normal. Maybe it's because I actually get good sleep on a consistent basis! :D

I'm blessed with a gift of sleeping but I love the lavender idea - it would smell so good as you are drifting off to lullabye land! It might be a great idea for little ones who don't sleep well too.
I hope you get all your "stuff" taken care of. It's the little stuff that drains a person. I'm facing the same kind of week.

Robin, I used to be blessed with the ability to sleep too. About a year ago, I developed occasional insomnia. Since then, it's just been on & off. Over the past few months, I've had issues with falling asleep for a few minutes and then popping awake - wide awake. So the lavender oil has been an enormous blessing for me! :D

Amy Grant said...

stamping and starbucks?!!

Whoa... i'm envious! :o)

Bunny Trails said...

You're welcome Blackpurl. Just last night, the dog got me up around 1:30 and I couldn't get back to sleep. Put a little lavender oil on my foot and I was out!

Well, Amy, if you lived a little closer, we could stamp & starbucks together! If you're ever visiting Colorado, let me know! :D
