~Thankfulness Week: Day 4~

Happy Friday Eve and Thanksgiving y’all! I hope your week has gone well and you are ready for the weekend! Holidays this year are much different than what we are used to, but unfortunately, this is where most of us are now. COVID-19 has caused so much heartache and stress for so many of us. Now is a time we all need to be a little more understanding, patient, supportive, and thankful for our lives and our loved ones. The struggles we might be facing right now in our lives, we need to remember that someone else could be going through something much worse than we are.

In the beginning of this week, I told you I would share with y’all two things I am thankful for each day and why, so will continue doing this today! On Thanksgiving, I think about the families out there that are in shambles because they lost someone they love to COVID-19 and I am truly thankful that everyone I know, and love is safe from this evil virus. We hear the stories told on the news from the front-line workers that are in the hospitals taking care of COVID-19 patients and the families that have gone through tragic loses. Each story breaks my heart a little more and I wish there was something I could do for these heartbroken people. All I know to do is anytime I leave my house to wear a mask, gloves, and social distance, and continue hoping others will do the same.

Another thing I am thankful for is the love and support I feel each day from my family. I was raised by a young and single mother, who didn’t have a good role model she could follow the example of to be a mother, but she did the best she could. She raised me to be kind, loving, understanding, tolerant, and compassionate. She and I do not agree on everything and know the topics we have different opinions on which are often avoidable. Overall, leaving hot topics out of the equation, I am thankful for the person she raised me to be. Between the guidance and love from my mother and grandfather, I am a strong, kind, loving, understanding, some-what tolerant person, and I never judge others on anything but the way they treat others.

Whatever you are doing today for Thanksgiving, I hope you are staying safe and enjoying the day. As crazy as this is going to sound, I will be home like always and working for a few hours. I think I might be a little too dedicated to my job or I am a bit of a work alcoholic, but I guess that is easy to do when you work from home. No matter if I am actually working or not, I am home where my home office is and tend to feel like I am always at work, I guess that is because I am.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you and your family have a nice, relaxing, and safe day! As always, I look forward to reading your comments and will respond as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am ALWAYS sending you LOVE, compassion, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

**We Are Finally Almost To The Weekend**

Happy Friday Eve y’all! How has your week been? As always, my week has been busy as ever, which I do enjoy. I never thought I would say this, but I do love my job. I don’t just love my job because I am working from home and the work itself can get frustrating, but for some reason, I enjoy it. I hardly ever take an official lunch break and instead work while I eat something. While there are some people I could do without, the majority of the people are pretty great. I guess it could be because I have not really met anyone I work with and only see them on the video meetings!

With the weather changing and is getting colder, the days might seem a little longer because they are! Hot weather is always very draining for me, but the cold temperatures increase the amount of pain I feel drastically. I am sure the reason for the increased pain in colder weather is because I tense up a lot more, but it is nothing that my small and great space heater can’t help! Considering my husband and I both work from home, and our joint home office is in the finished part of the basement, it gets cold. We purchased a few small space heaters that work brilliantly!

As our week is finally coming to an end, I think a little pick me up is just what we all need. Life in, general, can be stressful, but when you add work, fears of COVID, health, and everything else to the mix it can be overwhelming. I think days when I do not have something that makes me smile and or laugh the days are dreadful. The simplest things can bring a smile to our faces, like both of my cats are full of entertaining surprises, and the adorable groundhog that lives out back always makes my day much better. With that said, I hope the quote I am sharing will make you smile, even just a little!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have a great day and you stay as safe as you possibly can. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 numbers are increasing on a steady basis, so we need to be careful and take all precautions necessary. I am looking forward to reading your comments and promise to respond as quickly as I possibly can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

~We Are So Close To The Weekend y’all~

Happy Friday eve y’all! I really prefer saying happy Friday eve because Thursday makes it sound like the weekend is far away! How has your week treated you? Of course, my week has been crazy busy and I have been working at least 9 hours each day. The good thing is, busy days go by a lot faster than slow days. I was told today by four different lenders tell me they have requested to work with mainly me. This was a nice confidence boost for me because it make shows that I am doing a good job!

Now that we have almost made it through four days of this week and still have one to go, I think we need a little pick me up! On the bright side, the hard part of the week is over and I think we can handle one little day! I hope you will find the quote I am sharing as a nice pick me up and it can carry you through today and tomorrow, and then it is time for a weekend of relaxation! I would love the chance to read you what you thought about the quote I shared with y’all and I promise to respond to all comments as quickly as I can!

So what does your weekend have in store for you? My husband is working this weekend, so I have again nothing exciting planned. Actually that is really true because what I do have planned is organizing and cleaning, which I do love doing. Organizing things is one of my favorite things to do and I have no idea why. The good thing is, it is safe and of course, at home! This might sound boring to some people, but that is okay because we all have those silly little things we enjoy doing.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope your week has been great so far and you have a lovely, and safe day! Whatever your plans are for the weekend, please do what is best to stay safe. I also think it is safer to just stay home, but if you must go out just please follow the advice we have all heard from the experts! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

~Happy Friday Eve Y’all~

I have good news for y’all! We have almost made it through the painfully LONG week! I definitely think it is with all that has gone on this past week from the drastic increases in COVID-19 cases to the darn election, and then throw in the fact I worked Tuesday and Wednesday straight through lunch making my day be 9 LONG hours! Don’t get me wrong I did eat lunch, but it was while I was working which isn’t much of a lunch! I am still thankful that I get to work from home because I am able to work in comfortable clothes!

Now that the election is finally over, we need to remember to find the positive in any and all situations. It is heartbreaking how much politics has added conflicts and hostile behaviors between ourselves and our family and friends. It is perfectly acceptable to believe what we all believe, but it is necessary to respect others beliefs. In my own opinion, I think we should all do the best we can to respect others and inspire others the best we possibly can! This is why I chose the quote I did today for our “Pick Me Up Thursday”. It is my hope this quote will touch your heart as much as it did mine!

I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on the quote I have shared, but also want to know how your week has been. Now that the weekend is just about here, do you have any plans for the next two days? My plans do not involve anything outside of my home and not just because of COVID, but also because I have SO much that needs to be done at home. Of course, online grocery shopping, cleaning, and organizing are at the top of my list! And of course, still around the house, there are a few things I have to read!

Thank y’all for visiting my site today! I hope your week has been great and you are staying safe! Also, whatever your plans are for the weekend, please stay safe! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

~It Isn’t Just Thursday, It’s Friday Eve~

Happy Friday eve y’all! I am so glad that we have almost made it through this week! This week has been rather long and exhausting, but at least the weekend is very near. Normally, Halloween weekend is filled with trick or treat, dressing up, and having fun, but with all that has happened this year it will be much different. In most places trick or treat has been discouraged for safety reasons. It is really a smart idea to avoid it this year and hope that next year things will be much safer and better for everyone.

I know this year has been very challenging, but we need to hold onto hope for better days ahead of us. We only have one day left of the week and we could all use a little pick me up to help us through! I find the quote that I am sharing with y’all uplifting because we all deal with various obstacles that we always manage to get through. I think the amount of obstacles we find a way around or through shows the shear amount of strength we have!

Regardless of what you have planned for the upcoming weekend, please do all you can to stay safe! I know how frustrating it is to feel trapped in the house because of this virus, but we must do what is necessary until this virus is under control. Y’all already know that I work from home, so I literally have no escape anymore. It is awful when home feels more like a prison cell. I still find it shocking when the few times I do leave the house how many people do not wear a mask. It isn’t like it is difficult, it is just uncomfortable. I still say, a little short-term discomfort is worth the safety of your life.

Thank you so very much for visiting my site today! I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate your continuous support and kindness. I am looking forward to reading your comments on this post and the quote I have shared today. I promise, I will respond to all comments as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

~Happy Friday Eve Y’all~

We have finally almost made it through this week! How has your week been? This week has been a long one, but it is almost over. Today is the day of my first virtual appointment with my new neurologist, I am hoping it goes well. I will do a post about how my appointment well, but I do appreciate all of your kind and encouraging comments!

Now that we only have one day left of this week, I think we could all use a little pick me up. I am hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all, will serve you with the right amount of encouragement and lift you need to make it just one last day! With all that is going on with COVID and the stress it is causing, we all need to stay together and help one another get through all this stress!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope your Friday Eve goes well and you are staying as safe as you possibly can. Please always remember I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

~It Isn’t Just A Thursday, It Is Friday Eve~

We are finally almost at the end of this extremely long week! How has your week been? I hope your week has been great and you are staying as safe as you possibly can. I am working the morning, well until noon and then going to a doctor’s appointment. Unfortunately, this is one of those appointments I have to go to the office for, but I am always safe! I definitely I wish I could have done it virtually, but some doctor’s are not very cooperative.

With only one day of the week left before the weekend that we are all always looking forward to, we might be needing just a little pick me up! I am truly hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all today will give you the lift you need to get through one more day! I am looking forward to reading what you thought about the quote I shared today and will respond as soon as I can, which hasn’t seemed to be very fast lately. In my defense, these headaches I keep having are miserable and it isn’t easy to look at the computer screen.

Do you remember the weekends before the pandemic? I remember days in the past when I would have ideas of what I wanted to do over the weekend, but since the pandemic invaded our lives my plans are to stay in the house and safe. Even though I am thankful to be able to work from home, it sometimes seems like I am always at work because I hardly ever leave the house anymore. Although I am not excited about driving to my doctor’s appointment, I am thrilled to be leaving the house for a few hours today!!!

I want to thank y’all for visiting my site today! Your continued support and amazing comments are very appreciated. I hope your week has gone great and you are looking forward to a safe, and relaxing weekend! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Happy Friday Eve Y’all!

I have some very good news for y’all! It is almost the weekend! How has your week been so far though? I do hope your week has been wonderful and your are of course, staying safe! I know none of you will be surprised, but I do not really have any plans for the upcoming weekend and as boring as it might sound, it is the kind of weekend I look forward to. I do not have to get up early or work 8 extremely long hours. I plan to catch up on my favorite show, General Hospital and maybe even watch a movie I have been wanting to watch for months now, Bad Boys For Life!

As this week is coming to an end and we only have one more day to get through, I think we could all benefit from a pick me up! I am hoping the quote I am going to share with y’all will give you the little pick me up and optimism we all need! I do of course, look forward to reading your very valued comments and I promise to respond as quickly as I can!

We all know there is so much going on around the world that is not all that positive, but we are all doing the best we can. Unfortunately, COVID-19 is getting even more dangerous each day.

When a leader of country doesn’t take it seriously, why would we think anyone else would? I am saying this because even though the president of The United States did in fact end up in the hospital because of the virus he said was nothing more than a hoax or not that serious, still is subjecting people to the virus by NOT wearing a mask! I am just asking y’all to please follow guidelines that were given by the experts and really do know what they are talking about. If only more people would have acted in a more logical manner months ago, 212,000 American’s might still be a live today. I am not trying to get political about this, but these are the facts I have learned over the past few months!

Thank y’all for visiting my site today! I always appreciate your continued support and love reading your comments. I try the best I can to not put in my posts anything political because I do not want to offend anyone and believe we are all entitled to our opinions. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Offering Kindness Is Easy And It Is Necessary!

Happy Friday Eve y’all! How has your week been so far? I hope your week is going well and you are feeling the best you possibly can! What a crazy week, as y’all know yesterday was my birthday and today is my 9 year wedding anniversary. How does time go by so fast? It honestly feels like it was yesterday when my husband and I met halfway down the aisle. I still think it was a great idea. We started our marriage off meeting halfway, which shows compromise and we still compromise today!

We are almost to the much desired weekend and only have one day of the week left! Are y’all looking forward to the weekend as much as I am? I hope whatever your plans may be, you will do the best you can to stay safe. I know I must sound like a broken record, but this virus is terrifying and we can’t let our guard down. Many states have loosened restrictions and those states are seeing a drastic increase in COVID cases. Even though I say this in every post, I am saying it because I care about each and every one of you!

As we are nearing the end of this week, I think we could all use a little pick me up! I hope you will find the quote I am sharing with y’all as the little pick me up needed to get through the rest of this week! Of course, I am eager to read your thoughts and I will response as quickly as I can. I want y’all to know how much I value and appreciate the chance to read your thoughts on the quotes I share. I obviously think they are great, but your opinion matters to me!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site today! I hope you have a lovely Friday eve and your day goes the way you want it to. I know sometimes it isn’t easy, but try to not work too hard today! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Happy Friday Eve!

After four days of work this week, saying Happy Thursday makes the end of the week still feel so far away. I always prefer to view Thursday as Friday eve because it makes Friday feel much closer, what do you think? So, how was your week? Honestly, mine did feel long and I am really looking forward to the weekend! I do wish the weekend would start feeling as long as the workweek, but unfortunately, they are getting much shorter!

With all the hate continuing to spread throughout the country and world, I feel we need to remember the importance of love and kindness! I truly believe all some people need is a little compassion and that might help some of their deepest wounds heal. I mean we do not even need to know what someone else is going through but should be able to realize everyone around the world is struggling in some way or another.

As our workweek begins to come to an end, I think we all could use a little pick me up to get us through one last day of this week! Even though many of us are still living through the pandemic crisis and it does cause stress to so many, we need to do the best we can to find the good in life. I am hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all today will serve you with the pick me up you may need! Of course, I found it pretty remarkable, but would really love to know what you think! I understand no single person can fix the worlds problems, but we sure can work together to at least try!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope y’all have a great and safe day. In the times we are in right now, the virus is a lot more serious than it was when it first made way to our countries making it crucial to do all we can to stay safe. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!
