Good Day Sunshine!...and a Pay it Forward!


My Thank you God List:
1. No one was hurt!
2. Minimal damage to property.
3. No more flood waters.
4. A cool and dry front moved in and for those who still do not have is very comfortable, especially at night.
5. Don is home since electricity has not been restored at his job and he has been working very hard and our home is looking really beautiful!
6. We were able to use our truck and some come-a-longs to pull the evergreen trees back upright - so they did not die.
7. Through all the mud and muck, my show horse did not pull a shoe..which can cause damage to the hoof.
8. I have been able to get to work everyday without incident since Monday, which is very good since I am the one who gets paid hourly!
9. Every time the electricity has gone off, it was either right after I got done cooking a meal or at a time where it did not interfere with something really important.
10....and the best of all.... A few more gas stations were open this morning!!

So in honor of my restored "semi-normal" personality...I would like to have a Pay it forward give away! Here are the rules:
1. The first 3 people who want to do this will be the participants.
2. If you enter - you must commit to having a pay it forward and give something to 3 of your blog friends.
3. E-mail me your full name, address to

I promise you will really be pleased with your surprise from me...and I am not going to publish what it is simply because I want to make it special to each person who enters! In other words...each person will get something totally different and unique to them!

Hi Julie:
Count me in on your "pay it forward day". I feel fortunate that here in Utah, our weather is pretty decent and we only occasionally have power outages. The snow is the worst for me to get used to, having been raised in Sunny California.

Hi Julie.... I'm so glad to hear you and your family are doing well, and even if you went through some hectic time, you positivism is still strong... that’s my girl! Tomorrow is “Hopeful Friday” at the House in the Roses, and that’s exactly what I wanted to bring up: Positivism means a fruitful life. It is about your outlook towards life. You can either regret or rejoice.

Have a happy day...
