Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Chaos Never Dies Day which recognizes the fact that turmoil, craziness, hectic and disorder are a part of our modern everyday lives. To realized that chaos is a part of life and that it will never die. Chaos is defined as a state of confusion or disorder or in other words, as a lock of order. So if you feel like you are overwhelmed by hetic and stress of your every day life, today might be the right day to accept the circumstances and try to deal with it. Make this day your chance to take it a bit slower let and chaos be chaos… Instead of being hassled by it, just take a deep breath and let go of things that create chaos in your life.
If you can’t see the bright side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
We adore chaos because we love to produce order.
When things get very hectic here the best thing I know of is take a deep breath and count to ten, before moving on. It’s the little break that will make a big difference. A deep breath will clear the air so to speak.
Just about the time we think everything is running smothly and we’ve got everything running right, somthing new usually happens. Don’t let it get you down, take a deep breath and keep on going. Take a deep breath and let it go. Remember while we can’t control our circumstances and what happens in life, we can control our attitude.
Today I’m going to a birthday party for DS#5’s girls. Our sweet sugar AB and our Cuttie Patootie both have November birthdays. They are not on the same day but they celebrate them together. Today’s pictures are of their party last year.
This year we are celebrating by going to a place that is like a jump zone. It features high energy equipment like trampolines, a foam pit, a rock climbing wall and much more. Then we’re returning afterward to their home for a light supper and cake. It’s going to be a long day for me, but should be lots of fun, especially for the girls, but it is their birthday after all and this is what they wanted to do. I’m taking some munchies like vegetables and dip and fruits to go with what they’ll have on hand to eat. Nice and easy and no cooking required. Just cutting up and putting in a dish to serve.
They love Ranch veggie dip so I’ve found a recipe to make your own.
Easy Ranch Vegetable Dip
8 oz. sour cream
1/3 c. mayonaise
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp. dried dill
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp. dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste.
In a small bowl, stir the sour cream and mayo together until smooth and well blended.
Add the herbs and apices stirring until fully incorporated. Add a dash of salt and pepper to taste. Cover and chill in the refrigerator till ready to serve with your favorite vegetables.
Hopefully I’ll have pictures to share tomorrow of today’s party. It should be quite the celebration.
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos in to order. Confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home and a stranger into a friend.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
7579. for our sweet sugar AB and our Cutie Patootie, it’s their party day
7580. for fun activities for kids

Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly.
