Happy Tuesday and Tuesday Show and Tails


The month of November flew by. How did we come to December 1st? I am a December baby so I love my birth month. Come visit Thankful Tuesday.

I have done a grateful, thankful and blessed post daily at my blog My Tata's Cottage. It has helped me tremendously keep  my spirits up and keep from falling into the terrible trap of "Oh woe is me!" "We are all going to die!" "Worship science, forget God."  Someone is constantly saying I feel so sad, I am depressed. I am not an expert but I know enough to say stop listening to everything you hear on social media, the news, people with negative attitudes. Surround yourself with all the good things you love. I love tea and drink it most days. We keep chocolate in a drawer and eat some nearly everyday. There are so many little simple things to keep you smiling. If you feel sad or depressed please try this and talk to someone you truly trust. I have mentioned before, my hubby is all I have left in the total trust dept. I lost my two dear friends Mollye and Vivian and they literally took all the secrets I shared with them to their grave. I miss them so much so I do the encouragement group. When I read what others are experiencing it literally hurts my heart. Many friends I have known,  I am always hear to listen. I am my mother's daughter. I am just the way she was. A people person.

I learned this little tidbit when I lost my job November 13, 2014. All these years later it was the biggest blessing that could have happened to me. I do not miss any of it. 

This would be me, same glasses and all!  I am just thankful for today and for all the fun I am having. I am trying so hard to keep positive and keep trusting God. I know Jesus is preparing to return. This world holds nothing that will last forever and if someone believes that I feel terribly sorry for them. 

Oh Maxine, you need to stop !  Her little dog with his sun shades is a precious sight to see. I am hoping Angela return to blogging soon.

Your last comment about Jesus is so true!! I sure do understand what you mean. I have a best friend now, but all the others from years past have died, five of them.

BOL, that mask and fogged glasses! You are replaceable at work and not at home. We never understand those people who live for their work. We feel sorry for them. Happy Tuesday!

That Maxine is just too much! If you're a December baby, when is your birthday? Today is my Audrey's birthday. Joe (out in the house) has his birthday on the last day of December. We've got the month covered from beginning to end. hahaha. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

You're right about surrounding yourself with positive and happy things. I kicked the news to the curb long ago. I'm far better for it.

I love all the chuckles.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Big hug. ♥

Great post- especially about being positive- no point in focusing on the negatives as that is not healthy! Cheers!

We laughed out loud at Maxine, you go girl!!! Hey, our Dad is a December baby too and tomorrow is his day.

There is positive in almost everything if we look hard enough. XO
