Ok some days I can take it, but others....


God needs to work on me on so many things. But today is patience, for some reason some days I wake up with zero tolerance for the stuff that's going on. Today is one of those days. That this even has to be said is ridiculous to me. It has to be said because that's the attitude of some immigrants. They see being able to come to America as a right and get offended when it's questioned. 
The way I see it, that's what happens to a country when it gets soft and you don't want to offend anyone. Every other country can regulate immigration and they can protect their borders but when US tries to enforce it, everyone is offended. 
When did the ability to come to America became a right??? Did it happen slowly or all of a sudden??
My family will always see it as a privilege, grateful and blessed.  I pray for all those families that would like to call America home, get in line, wait your turn and do it legally and it will hopefully some day become a privilege too. If you choose to come illegally and get send back, you have no right to get offended, because you have no rights. I know this may sound cruel, but that's how I see it.   
Of course I'm for immigration, after all I became an immigrant in 1970 at the age of nine. But it has to be legal, so you feel like you've earned it, not like it's your right.  Do you know what I mean? 
Ok, since I'm at it. I also believe that you should never forget your roots or your culture, after all that's your origin and will always be part of who you are. But you HAVE to acclimate, be proud of your new home. Take your new culture in, speak English and become a proud citizen of your new blessed home. Just saying.

Fourth week of January, Happy Planner layout.

So far so good. Loving my planner and having fun with the layouts. Still have plenty of space to actually plan.

A new little courtyard area.


I'm so enjoying this new little garden area. It was a much neglected side of our home. But after some pressure cleaning, a little mulch and some stepping stone, I'm loving this little courtyard now.  It only gets the early morning sun and that's perfect for those plants in need of some TLC. I set up a little area for them and a comfy seat for me. I have a new place to sit, have my morning coffee, read or simply look up at the sky and thank God for being so good to me.

Praying for our new president.

May God continue to bless our great country and may he guide our new president. I pray that he will be a great leader.

January week three in my Happy Planner.

It's really hard trying to keep these planner layouts simple. There're so many beautiful stickers, paper and kits. I'm so glad I stated a planner, this was the perfect time for me. I have so many house projects and things that must get done before spring, the planner is keeping me straight.

Week two January in my Happy Planner.

Loving this Girlie planner layout. I always try to play along with the page trim colors that come with the planner pages. In this second week in January it was blue with a little teal, love those colors together. I found the cute images from Pinterest, my favorite in the retro phone, so cute.   








Week one January in my Happy Planner.

So far so good, been using up all my scrapbooking paper scraps. Been getting a lot of inspiration from Pinterest. I did purchase a few sticker books from Michael's that coordinate with The Happy Planner.  






January at a glance.

Been very busy with tons of home project that must get done soon. But never too busy to put little bit crafting time aside.  
This is my very first planner layout. I'm using the Happy Planner from Michael's and  I love it.
