picking daisies

As I sit here with my morning coffee wondering (and fretting)  about the activities of this week and the weeks to come, I am reminded again to slow down my thinking and my planning and to just enjoy today.


It seems even when life is good, as my mom says, I look for trouble to borrow.


Not today...I think I'll just count my blessings and pick a few daisies...


They weather has cooled, the sun is shining and the week is full of promise.  What about you?  Are you a trouble borrower?  Or a blessing counter?

xo, Patty

  3. I more of a trouble borrower, always waiting for the other shoe to walk. I am really working on realizing that Isomethings I cant control, only offer it up in prayer. Believe me it helps!

  4. Love daisies! They were my wedding flower!! I guess I am a bit of both. My husband calls me "Stew." He says I worry WAY too much. But sometimes I think it is a Mama thing. I don't know. But I am a worrier.

  8. You are so lucky to have cooler weather. Wish it would blow our way:) Your daisy's are beautiful, there one of my favorite flowers. I am so lucky I am not a worrier.

  9. Your little bee mug is awfully cute.
    I'm a mixture of both as well, just like most everyone else commenting. I hope your week goes well. Take care.

  10. Just being a mom will make you a worrier. But I do try to count my blessings. I pray plenty:):) We are suppose to let God carry our burdens...but sometimes I forget and think I need to do it. You made yourself a cute flower vase, to have a nice drink beside. Smiles, Susie

  13. Hi Patty!

    I LOVE your cute little bumble bee mug...looks adorable with the freshly picked daisies in the old canning jar! Daisies were my favorite flowers when I was a newlywed umpteen years ago and I decorated my whole house with them as they are so fresh and compliments all decorating schemes! :)

    I am unfortunately both...trying hard to stop worrying and learning to give it all to HIM! Sounds like you are having a WONDERFUL day! :D

    XOXO Carolyn

  14. Patty,
    I'm definitely a blessing counter! Love your daisies! That bee mug would fit in perfectly with my table decor at the present! Have a great week, dear friend. Count your blessings name them one by one. . .when I count my blessings...I count you twice!!!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  15. I am a worrier like my mother. I wish it weren't so but I have accepted this. I try to put it out of my mind when I can and just do other things.

  20. I'm a recovering trouble borrower! I'm working on letting things run their course. It gets easier as you get older because you know nothing lasts forever and you'll come out okay on the other side of the trouble. ~ Maureen
