Happy Moments in Life

This morning I want to share one of the happy moments in life from this past week. Not that I believe money buys happiness or that you have to buy things to make you happy. But I am a crafter by nature, and I do love to look at pretty things. Having a craft to work on and having something pretty to look at makes me feel blessed and joyful. Below are a few of the things that I got this past week that will continue to remind me of my blessings each day - happy moments that were supplied from God above.

I received a Hobby Lobby gift card for Mother's Day so off I went Tuesday to find some goodies. The fabric and engraving art set were 40% off. The donut maker was 50% off. My son and I walked down to TJ Maxx in the same shopping center where I found the adorable butterfly mug for only $3.99!

I always have another future project at my fingertips. Below you'll see craft projects I just received as gifts and a fraction of cheater quilt projects that I pulled from a closet to work on at some point in time. From macrame to cross stitch, paint by number to freehand painting, pieced quilting to cheater quilts, latch hooking to mosaic art, I have quite a stash. I think that the work I enjoy (transcribing and proofreading), my daily work around the house (cooking, cleaning, laundry, taking care of the cat, mowing, washing dishes, important phone calls), reading a good book, blogging, writing my own books, daily devotions, prayer, and having a craft project to work on help me stay sane.

Blessings from all work

I don't do everything every day of course, but I do have a full day everyday doing something. I think if you aren't keeping your mind occupied by being productive, negative thoughts slip in to ruin your life and your happiness. God knows how many negative things we could focus on if he weren't providing productive outlets for positive thoughts instead. Housework and occupational work are blessings just as much as hobbies. So, do them all with joyful expectations. Because all are gifts from our Heavenly Father.

May you always experience these blessings from above,

Patricia

Today’s topic, free typing lessons, is part of the  #smlworkfromhome  series. As I mentioned in my book,  Transcribe Like a Pro: Making Money from Home , typing is obviously one of the most important skills you will need to succeed as a transcriptionist . Of course, the process is easier when you know the correct way to type.

I have added some elderly tips  to my Senior Care Memoirs website. We all have a senior in our family, such as a parent or grandparent. Or we see elderly people while we're shopping. They deserve to feel respected and independent. So, I have added these new tips as some helpful advice. Watch for posts to be added to the Senior Care Memoirs site more frequently as new stages evolve in my senior family members' lives.  I hope you enjoy these tips and other upcoming posts.
