I Love Thursday #125 Abounding Blessings
This is the 125th post of things we love for the week. We post these loves each Thursday along with LeeAnna on her blog at Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out. You will surely find something to inspire you.
Nurse in the family! We are SO proud to be able to share that Andrea, RN is now official. She took her Boards last Thursday and we had a few tense hours waiting for the official email. She has worked hard for this license and now she can start fulfilling her dream. Big congrats to her with all our love. ♥ ♥ ♥
She has certainly earned this Pin that she received in December.
Level 1 and 2 thinkers! This is from Steve Beck, who recently shared this interesting concept:
Level 1 thinkers talk about “I” and “me” a lot. They’re self-absorbed; they don’t see the big picture. The way they see things, there’s them . . . and there’s everybody else.
Level 2 thinking is done by people who DO see the big picture. It shows in little ways and in big ways: they push in their chair when they leave a restaurant. They hold the door for somebody. They say “we” and “us”, versus “I” and “me”. Finally, they understand we’re all in this together, and they realize that everything they do affects everyone around them in a negative or positive way!
Which level thinker are you? I know without a doubt that I’m a Level 2 but there is always room for improvement. Maybe we need a Level 3 thinker . . .
HAHAHA! I saw this owl-meme on Facebook and it really struck me as funny. Have you ever gotten on your own nerves??!
I seem to be surrounded by a great many overthinkers so it’s a good thing I’m a direct kind of person!
Saved from a short slideshow this week, we got some cute pictures at the last minute. You’d think someone was studying and taking a big test or something! Addison and Dominic were happy to help Uncle Billy with his cupcake. He couldn’t eat ALL of that by himself, anyway, right?! Coloring is always the order of the day, especially together. Addison sits like a big girl at Barnes and Noble, while Dominic helps Gamma shake the cotton balls. Dominic was chill at our house during the RN impromptu celebration, just enjoying the passenger train.
Addison, the big girl feeds herself in Dominic’s highchair. Then, it was time for a LONG walk to the swings. I’ll bet Addison thought it was a few miles away. The end result is SO worth the walk, though. If only the wind could be blowing through her hair! Addison knows how to take care of an older brother – just sit on him. Finally, when all else fails just sit on his table and be the queen of the little people, literally.
