I haven’t done a thank you Thursday in so long. But it was a must today.
In a time when the world is all sorts of messed up. I’m not talking about the natural disasters that have been happening lately. I’m talking about the way we are treating one another. I’m talking about people not even saying the simplest things as please, thank you, you’re welcome, excuse me and especially I’m sorry. Why did we forget to just be nice. Why did we forget that a random act of kindness from a stranger is okay. That there doesn’t have to be an ulterior motive when people are nice.
I was at the laundromat on Monday. My towels weren’t dry yet. I went to the change machine. For some reason it wouldn’t take my dollar. After putting it in 3 times. Somebody taps me on the shoulder and says here. A complete stranger handed me a dollar in quarters. I must have looked completely shocked that a stranger was giving me a dollar. He said here keep it. I was like are you sure? He said, yes keep it. I was so taken aback, that I didn’t even realize that I should of handed him the dollar that wasn’t working in the change machine. I said thank you over and over. It was so nice of him. I finished my laundry and when I turned back to thank him again. He was gone. It was so weird to me because I instantly felt like he had never been there.
Let’s not forget that it’s okay to be nice to one another. Including complete strangers.
LIFE IS GOOD!!!
Is this thing on?!?!?!
Once again I told myself over and over to keep up with this thing lol. I haven’t and yes I’m ashamed of myself.
Today I am celebrating my birthday so I thought I would post about it. My birthday was almost 2 weeks ago, but today I am celebrating what I consider my 4th birthday. It’s the anniversary of the day I almost left my body. Not too many people know what that means or what happened to me. So it’s probably a little confusing to you. Without going into too much detail and turning this into a 6 mile post. I don’t even know how to say this without it sounding so dramatic. BUT I almost died 4 years ago. That’s as much as I’m going to say because it’s still hard for me to talk about.
I’ve never been one to celebrate my birthday. It’s just not one of those things that isn’t important. I don’t even tell people it’s my birthday. This year for some reason I didn’t feel the same. I decided to decorate my own desk at work. Then I said I wasn’t going to because my coworkers would laugh at me. I asked my niece if it was a dumb idea to decorate for myself. She quickly replied with “Tia, there is nothing wrong with celebrating yourself” She is right! So for my real birthday a couple of weeks ago, I bought myself some balloons and I made myself a birthday banner.
Best thing about celebrating another birthday today, was a little visit from this precious girl. Thanks for brining her Dana <3
Itzel had a half birthday a few days ago. I made her crown and banner.
I keep posting the banner on Instagram lol. I’m so proud of it.
Aside from banners, I’ve been making so many paper flowers. At one point my living room was a flower shop lol.
Happy Tyson Tuesday by the way.
If you’re still reading this. Thank you!
Have a great evening and thanks for stoping by.
Where flowers bloom, so does hope.
Take a quiet walk with Mother Earth. It will nurture your mind, body and soul.
Make every day Earth Day.
Join me all month as I celebrate Earth Day with some of my photos and quotes I find on line.
Good food, lots of paper flowers, baby shower decorations, baby Itzel and a boat load of crafting. Thank you March. See you next year <3
I’ve been tired and drained and I need to take a nap and wake up next Tuesday.
Life of a crafter is hard! LOL.
I made a simple banner today.
Excuse my mess.
I’m so tired. So sorry for the uneventful post.
Thanks for checking out my blog all month long. I appreciate you.
With baseball Opening Day in a little over a week. Making these baseball decorations has been getting me so excited for the season to start. While others favorite day of the year is their birthday or Christmas or even Valentine’s Day. Mine is Opening Day! Don’t get me wrong I love Christmas songs and red hearts all over the place. But Opening Day makes my heart super happy. Walking into the stadium after months of waiting for the season to start. The team introductions. The way the America Flag covers the field during the singing of the National Anthem. The Fly over and the face of the kid that calls out the first “PLAY BALL” of the season. Then then MIKE TROUT takes the field. Yes MIKE TROUT. The best player in baseball!!! That’s when I know that all is well in the world! Baseball is back and it’s going to be fun!
This Angels fan isn’t having too much making these Dodger decorations. LOL
Center pieces for a baseball themed retirement party.
Let’s go Angels!!!
I love baseball (gooooo Angels)!!!
I love crafting!!!
Today I brought them together to help my sister with decorations for a retirement party. I’m not done and I also didn’t take very many pictures. Hopefully more tomorrow.
These are going to go in a basket full of baseball goodies.
I just have to throw in some Angels pictures lol.
The Big A.
This is where I hang out from April-September and this year hopefully, in October too.
See you at the Ball park or in a craft room somewhere.
