“….give thanks in all circumstances.”


A member of my church stopped by to deliver some awesome Thanksgiving goodies….there was so much stuff I couldn’t even fit the turkey in the shot!  I especially appreciated the signed card and decoration for my new apartment.  If you can’t see closely it says “Believe: With God all things are possible.”

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  Taking last night’s sermon to heart, I am thankful for the countless blessings in my life.  There is so much I have for which to be grateful.  I’m also thankful for the terrible tragedies that have happened since my arrival in California.  Without these I would never realized the full potential of my faith, strength, and wisdom.

9:30 am is my move-in time tomorrow.  While it’s certainly not the way I envisioned our arrival in our new family home….I’m going to make the best of it.  A wonderful group of people is helping me with some furnishings and kitchen items and I’ll be on the lookout at Walmart, Craigslist, Goodwill, and various yard sales to ensure I obtain everything we need.  I’ll use this time to create a cozy bedroom for my kids, stock the kitchen with food, bring in the toys and books, hang photos, and other attempts at decorating.  Adam’s going to be so thrilled when he sees our new home!!

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,


About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
