I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel  was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled  with angels. My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said,  "This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are  received."    

I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so  many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps  from people all over the world.
Then we moved on down a long corridor  until we reached the second section.

The angel then said to me, "This is  the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people  asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them."  I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at  that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged  for delivery to Earth.
Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor  we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one  angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. "This is the Acknowledgment  Section," my angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed.
"How  is it that there is no work going on here?" I asked.

"So sad," the angel  sighed. "After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send  back acknowledgments."
"How does one acknowledge God's blessings?" I  asked.
"Simple," the angel answered. Just say, "Thank you,  Lord."
"What blessings should they acknowledge?" I asked.

"If you  have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place  to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the  bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of  the world's wealthy, and if you get this on your own computer, you are part of  the 1% in the world who has that opportunity ."

"If you woke up this  morning with more health than illness.. You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day."
"If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of  starvation... You are ahead of 700 million people in the world."
"If you can attend a church without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you  are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the  world." 

"If your parents are still alive and still married.... you are  very rare."   
"If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the  norm, you're unique to all those in doubt and despair......." 

"OK," I  said. "What now? How can I start?" 
The Angel said, "If you can read this  message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you  as very special and you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all." 
Have a good day, count your blessings, and if you care to, pass this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all  are.......... 

ATTN: Acknowledgment Dept.
“Thank you Lord, for giving  me the ability to share this message and for giving me so many wonderful people  with whom to share it.” 

If you have read this far, and are thankful for all that you have been blessed with, acknowledge your good fortune. 
I thank God for everything, especially all my family and friends..

The Rules Have Changed ~ Review & Giveaway!

The Rules Have Changed with NEW Purex® No Sort™ for Colors Detergent!
Who out there likes doing their laundry?
I don't see a very big showing of hands.
Let's face it, none of us really does.
The sorting, the piles.....
Then making sure the piles are big enough for a
full load to save on energy and water.
Well, Purex® No Sort™ for Colors Detergent is the latest laundry innovation invented to simplify our laundry routine!
Purex® No Sort™ for Colors Detergent presents a wonderful development in Anti-Color-Transfer Technology in which loose dyes get trapped so the colors can't bleed in mixed color loads!
No more accidents, just bright. clean clothes. 
Now every load can be a full one, because different colors can be laundered together with Purex® No Sort™ for Colors Detergent. 
Of course, you still need to use common sense, like washing new jeans and strongly colored fabrics separately a few times prior to doing a mixed load.
Purex® No Sort™ for Colors Detergent is having a sweepstakes to kick off this new technology so be sure to click on Purex® No Sort™ for Colors Detergent to enter!
One Grand Prize winner will receive $1,000!!
I am having a giveaway too!
One winner will receive 2 coupons each for a free bottle of Purex® No Sort™ for Colors Detergent!!

Never Assume Anything ~~ Priceless!

If you've ever worked for  a boss who reacts before getting the  facts and thinking things  through, you will love  this!

Arcelor-Mittal Steel,  feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a  new CEO. The new boss was determined to rid the company of all  slackers.

On a tour of the  facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning against  a wall. The room was full of  workers and he wanted to let them know  that he meant business. He  asked
the guy, "How much money do you make  a week?"

A  little surprised, the young man looked at him and said, "I make  $400 a week. Why?"
The CEO said, "Wait right  here." He walked back to his office,  came back in two minutes, and  handed the guy $1,600 in cash and  said, "Here's four weeks' pay.  Now GET OUT and don't come  back."

Feeling pretty good about  himself the CEO looked around the room  and asked, "Does anyone want  to tell me what that goof-ball did here?"

From across the room a  voice said, "Pizza delivery guy from Domino's."

I Wish I Could Paint!

Paint as in paint a sign, picture or anything like that!
I can paint walls but that's about it
Yes I've tried taking classes, but I'm too impatient. I just want to paint! Not practice!
Yes stupid *rolling eyes*
So I have to come up with other ways to make what's in my head! LOL
I wanted to make a sign for the front of the house,
like a 'Welcome' sign.
 I searched on line for a similar image of what I had rolling around in my head.
When I found it I printed it out to the size I wanted.
Yes, this IS cheating
You'll have to take my word for it because I forgot to take a photo.
  I painted the board the color I wanted.....yes I can paint boards too!
I distressed the board.
Note: distressing the board is a good way to distress yourself too.
I drilled holes on each side near the top fro wire to hang in by.
I hand tore the image so it would have uneven edges.
I then decoupaged the image onto the board with outdoor Mod Podge giving it several top coats allowing it to dry in between. 

I added wire making curlies for a little more charm in the front.
I hung it on a chair I placed by the front door as shown here and mentioned here

There is still time to enter my Bloggerversary Giveaway!

Purex in the Lead Again!

I tell ya those people over at Purex are at the top of their game! They come up with the most brilliant ideas for us.
How do they know our needs?
Well, they must have been reading my mind the other day when I was thinking about washing my dogs winter warmies, beds, and blankets.
  New Purex Fresh Pet Detergent for Pet Clothing!
Being a pet lover there's not much I wouldn't do to keep them comfy and cozy. Some detergents are just too strong for their sensitive skin, that's why I was so surprised and excited to receive this cutting edge Product in the mail.
Not only does Purex Fresh Pet promises to keep my dogs clothing bright and clean just like my families but it has Odor Control! Something I may need to try with certain other members of the family! LOL
New Purex Fresh Pet Detergent is a premium liquid pet clothing formula that is specially formulated to condition and moisturize your pet's coat and eliminate odor while they wear their favorite outfits.
I wasn't surprised when I opened it to add to the washing machine that it had such a nice clean fragrance. Not overly perfumey like some doggie colognes they make for canines. YUK!
Bella's t-shirt came out bright and so soft.
She curled up right away and seemed so cozy.
We've gone from Spring to the Winter that didn't show up this year. We've been having such crazy weather here. Going to rainy and colder, Bella got out of having a bath the other day. I do have to admit she smelled better even after her t-shirt came off later that day!
A big plus.  ;) 
 Their blankets were added to the load also.
I think Katie likes the soft smell and feel too!  
It's been colder at night, so Bella needed her Snuggie on.
She takes it off during the night usually, but since using Purex Fresh Pet Detergent, she's been keeping it on all night!
Another thing I noticed is that her skin isn't as flaky as usual. The Winter weather dries it out. I think Purex Fresh Pet Detergent has really helped keeping her skin moisturized.
Katie and her blankets - she loves to nestle even more down inside since they come out so soft and comfy thanks to Purex. Once she has made her nest you can't get her to move! And she knows she's in my chair! But at least she and my chair now smell nice :) 
Katie is ready to go for a walk and strut her stuff with her fresh clean coat and hat!

and Bella
show their appreciation!
*Kiss, kiss*
