With all of the sad things going on lately, it would be nice to have a list of Positive things to look at. So, post only positive things going on in your life. It can be as simple as being glad you were blessed with another day in life, you woke up this morning.

I'll start.

As of yesterday, I have lost 25 lbs. Yippee!

What an accomplishment! Good job, Bobbi!
I am not sure if I already shared the news that our oldest daughter is expecting her 8th baby. This is after a miscarriage about 6 months ago. The new baby is doing great and looks healthy. This will be our 22nd grandchild! Praise God for He is Love.

I am expecting two new great-grandchildren. Austin's son, Emerson, will be arriving around my birthday, October 22. And Austin's sister, Kristin, is due in March. Both Kristin and Lucy are having morning sickness... all day long. I feel so sorry for both of them. But happy to be a great-grandma again.

Congrats everyone ! Congrats for the weightloss, i have to get serious too.
Wished i had more time to take more pics...but have to share that i found my Snuggle bug,I am so in love with Maggie and she is with me, but with others she nibbles on the back ankles and she barks at them and man what a voice she has. Had Syl pick up a water bottle and it works, after a few sprats now all we have to do is hold it in our hands. She is still very Hand shy and hyper. She is so cute. I was in love the first time i saw her. We where meant for each other. I think Rosi and Apollo sen her to me !:heart:

I am so happy to hear that Maggie is filling that empty spot in your life after losing your other precious babies. There is nothing quite like a snuggle from a precious pet! well....maybe from a grandchild, too!! Ha Ha!

The oldest grandchild Bayley started college this year, and the next 2 in line Alexis, and keegan are in their senior years. Sophie, bayleys sister who is technically a junior is taking classes at ozarks technical community college and only goes to the high school for soccer. The other three are in 9th 8th and 3rd grades. Except for allergies and asthma everyone is good. Takoda is a handful but he makes me laugh like I haven't in quite awhile, and we won't talk about the weight thing. Lol

I managed to get the back yard mowed this morning. The leaves are already starting to fall, so the yard is once again full of leaves. But it is beautiful out there.

I am thankful that Susan's little ones are all safe and sound.

Drizzled a bit this morning and it is cool in the house so Mom is going take the chill off and make a little Fire !
That sounds nice and cozy. It will be in the 80's today and tomorrow, then it is supposed to drop into the 70's. I am looking forward to cooler weather.

My positive thought for today......
I am thankful for my wonderful husband.

Steven and I have been on a waiting list for three months to get the new shingles shot and also the new pneumonia one. They still haven't come in. I am so grateful for good health! We hope to stay that way while we travel and even after we return! We feel so blessed to have the RV where we can cook our own meals and limit our exposure to bugs going around!

We've had an abundance of rain with temps still in the upper 70s to low 80s. We lost one of our greene county deputies last night when his car got swept into the pomme de tar river northwest of town about 20 miles. He had just returned to service after checking an abandoned 911 call and he was out in the toolies.

When i go to Dr i am getting the Shingles shot also as Mom and Syl had it.Syl's Dr said there is a 95% chance she will get it again ! Been getting my pneumonia shots and Flu but not sure if i am getting one this yr as i was so sick several times but i truly believe it was the mold. Hope they get with it this week as i don't know how much longer i can sleep on couch, my back and neck are killing me.

Positive thought for today.
Marlin loves to watch sports and our Boise State Broncos won last night. He is watching the Denver Broncos today and they are doing well so far. We will be going to pick up JoOnni around 5 or so and will spend the evening with her. I love time with family.

We had a wonderful service at church today and were encouraged by Daniel's life and his commitment to prayer, no matter what it might have cost him personally. Afterwards, we spent the afternoon at Rachel's house, where she had prepared a lovely meal and my favorite pie, pumpkin! She made it dairy free and gluten free. She is a wonderful cook! The puppies were all happy to see us come back home and have been snuggling with us and enjoying playtime until bed.

The most amazing thing happened this morning! I am still in shock. Chewy.com sent us a condolence letter regarding the loss of our Buddy and refunded the entire amount for the crate, crate pad, and canned food we had purchased to take on our upcoming trip! That was over $142!! They are an amazing company and have repeatedly reached out to me and helped me when I had any issues with forgetting to add something to my order (allowing me to get free shipping) and waiving the shipping costs even though the extra item was less than qualified for the free shipping. If I tried a food my dogs hated, I was quickly refunded my money and told to donate the food to someone else's dog or a shelter. I think they are fantastic and you can be sure I will continue to use them to send our pet supplies!
