I wanted to take the time this morning to thank all of you for being here. Thank you for the support and faith you’ve shown towards this site and to me. If this is your first time here I’m glad that you came by. I hope you enjoy the site and that you’ll be back.

Many of my visitors have their own blogs but I wanted to take this opportunity to invite you to submit something to aplaceforthoughts.com by going to the submit your story tab at the top of this page. As you know many of my posts are fairly short so it doesn’t have to be much. But I invite you to share a little something. You can do so anonymously or as you and I could link your post right back to your site. You could even think of it as a guest post. Or if you’ve wanted to write something and get it off your chest but you don’t want everyone in your whole world knowing than this would be the perfect place to do so.

I invite you to share something that is in your heart. Perhaps a childhood memory, a dream or story of yours, or even just one of your favorite quotes and what it means to you. Remember that this blog belongs to you too.

Wishing everyone a day full of great joy and peace.

This week I’ve struggled a bit with something that is on my mind. I realized it when for the third time in two days I found myself having an argument in my head with the person that I am upset with. It’s happened at random times. While doing dishes; while driving. I’m starting to feel like it’s almost to the point where it is too late to discuss it because I’m not sure that I can anymore without getting too upset. Of course I could always do so via email but that isn’t really the right way to handle this.

So I’m hoping I find some patience. Patience to find the right words and the strength to address this issue appropriately. Quickly and to the point without making it about more than it needs to be. I so hope I can.

While writing this I decided to look up some quotes on patience. I thought maybe they would inspire me. Help me to breathe and relax and think again about what is upsetting me. Below is a quote I came across that I really like.

Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.  ~John Quincy Adams

Do you have a favorite quote related to patience? How do you de-stress so that you can prepare yourself to deal with something difficult?

Last week I was surprised to find out that Lori over at mommyfriend shared a couple awards that she received with me!

Then a day or two later LizAnn at forgirlsanddolls gave me one of the awards as well!

Really? Me?!? Thank you both so very much!

I am new to blogging so this was a surprise to me and I feel so blessed to know that you both find value here at aplaceforthoughts.com. I appreciate it more than you know!

From what I understand once you receive these awards you need to pass them along to 7 other blogs that you would like to share with others and you have to share 7 things about yourself.

I’ll try (Really? 7 things about me?!? Eek!)

1) I love tea

2) I am passionate

3) I need to learn how to be more patient

4) I hate going to the dentist

5) I hate when people talk during the previews at the movie theater

6) #5 reminds me that I haven’t been to a movie in a very long time

7) I love music

At this time I’d love to tell you about the 7 people/sites that I have decided to pass these awards along to. (I am mentioning them in alphabetical order of the website name)

1) forgirlsanddolls – love this site! LizAnn shares some very valuable information with her readers and she herself is a doll! Thank you for all of your support, LizAnn!

2) heartbeatnews – Amber Smith is a journalist from my neck of the woods. This is a site in which she is trying to spread the word on cardiac health – SO VERY IMPORTANT!

3) mommyfriend – Lori is so hilarious! Her blog is entertaining to say the least and most importantly she has shown me a tremendous amount of support since I’ve joined the land of bloggers. Thank you!

4) thecookinglady – Angela has some very good recipes! If this site isn’t marked in your favorites yet – it should be!

5) thelittlethings – Julie found me here and afterwards I had to go see her site and now I visit it regularly. I was so touched to have someone come by that I hadn’t reached out to! Thank you, Julie!

6) thesahmproject – Pretty soon another little one will be arriving for this mom! Her blog is great and she shares how she has prepared to be a SAHM!

7) walkingtheland – Jessica – you are the first person that I “met” when I entered this blogging world and I so appreciate the friendship you have shown me. Your blog is great! You are a fabulous mother and teacher. The little ones that spend their days with you are so very blessed. Thank you so much for the support you’ve shown me.

I’d like you all to know that I just love to visit your sites and catch up on what is new with you. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the support you’ve shown me and for continuing to visit aplaceforthoughts.com time and time again.

Ending with a quote…

Stop what you are doing. If you can. I know we always think we can’t because there is just too much to do butstop!

Close your eyes. Listen. What do you hear? If you hear a very small hum from your computer (like I am now!) then you are going to want to walk into another room.  Walk outside if you can’t find the right spot indoors to do this (yes, even if it’s cold – put on that coat and scarf and head outside for just five minutes).

Take a minute to breathe for you. Let go of your stress. Think of something pleasant. Or don’t even think. Just be. Give yourself a moment to rejuvenate somehow. Inhale and exhale. Take time to do this each day. I know I’m not always good at letting myself slip away from everything else each day but I know that it is important. I’m writing this as a reminder that I need this and to remind others that it is okay to do something for you! It’s good and important for our health!

Ending with a quote and wishing everyone a great day…

We spend most of our time and energy in a kind of horizontal thinking. We move along the surface of things [but] there are times when we stop. We sit still. We lose ourselves in a pile of leaves or its memory. We listen and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper. ~James Carroll
