As I've admitted before, I'm far from a blogging Queen - so it's very exciting to see your comments and I want to say "thank you" for being so welcoming and kind. There are so many wonderful people in this world...but it's easy to get caught up in the negativity that comes our way. It's about choice...and perception...and a willingness to find the positive in even the most uncomfortable circumstances. These days, it seems that there's so much energy being focused towards seeing the good in our lives. Isn't it uplifting?
Over the weekend I was talking with my sister about the power of "hope". Can we pinpoint it to November 4th or just an overwhelming desire to get past all the challenges and know that the answers are already within us? Hope is what helps us see the vision of a better life. Hope allows us to dream of unlimited possibilities. It's hope that helps us remember the strength that we all carry and the unique qualities that each of us bring to the table.
This Thursday, I hope you'll join me at the Sandy Macey's as we sit down at a table of desserts! I'll be there at 7p for another visit to the Little Theatre. Classes are free and last about an hour (unless I start yakking way too much and stop looking at the clock!). This week's menu is 2 desserts from my Stick of Butter Cookbook. We'll do Cranberry Walnut Pie and Peanut Butter Cups...both are super easy and great to give as gifts.
Have a great week...and next time I check in, I promise an update on my little puppy Buddy and another bonus recipe....plus a few holiday tips.
