It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.


Monday musings on waiting

remember the cute bag (my own) that I walked out of TJ Maxx with last week?

the cat peed in it! I was getting ready to leave for a weekend away, picked up my bag only to find it wet and reeking!!!! My favorite bag!!!

does that mean I can get a new one?? lol

I am still gonna wait a bit I think. there are many more in my closet!

I wanted to say welcome to my new followers. thanks for joining my journey!

stretchy patience is a beautiful thing and it's looking bright
and lovely on you, dear Mary:)
i think maybe the key to waiting well is the ginormous expectancy
of good.
not any agenda in particular,
just good
because it's who He is
and our hope doesn't disappoint us;)

Mar, what a bummer...and always when you least expect it.....I hope your weekend away was still wonderful and I am sure you will pick another lovely one from your closet that will fill the bill.....

Waiting.....I like your word for the year....It's definitely a challenge word kinda like mine...Available..

Hi Mary,
ick, sorry to hear about your bag, hope your weekend was great anyway, and yes you are doing a good job with a challenging word!!

It's a sign to get another one! Just kidding! Cat pee and spray is the worse ever!

Thanks for asking about my house age. I'd love to see pics of yours, since it's actually an old one! Are there any photos of it on your blog?

Sympathizing with you.

We can laugh now, but I'd be ready to spit board nails when I first discovered it! I'm wondering if the 'skunk out' products would help get rid of the odour, or would you always be thinking that you are catching a whiff :-)

Cat pee is the worst !!! I have been very lucky with my present clowder of kitties - they keep the pee in the box, Thank God !
As for a new new purse, I say go for it if they have them at TJMaxx. Little things that make you smile are so important. Maybe you could make room for it by gifting one in your closet to someone else ?
Just a thought !
I hope your Tuesday is pee less and smile full ! ;-)
