A Happy Sunday

Hello my friends, I hope each and every one of you had a great day. I truly did.

I went to Mass this morning then joined friends from church for breakfast at a local dinner in town called Friendly Neighbours...it was packed as so many had the same idea as we did. It is a very plain but warm and friendly, owned by a family here in town. The food was very good the coffee great and I so enjoyed my friends.

When I got home I settled in to watch the finals of the Curling Masters, it was a great game and before it finished my friend called me to go over as her daughter and her granddaughters were visiting. I told her I would be over as soon as the game was over. My team won the game and off I went to visit.

What a treat it was to see her and her family. Her daughter has 3 little girls, all under 5 years old and they are so sweet. It was sunny outside and cool but we bundled up and took the girls for a walk.....when we got home I read them stories and played with them as my friend and her daughter made supper. It was so nice to share supper with them and I laughed so much watching the girls, such a sweet age.

I came home in time to watch the baseball game and yay my Yankees won. It was quite a day.... filled with good friends, beautiful children and great food. I feel very blessed tonight as I get ready for sleep.

I am thinking of my friend Di, and am praying as I know you all are, that her husband gets well and comes home from hospital very soon.

Good Night and God Bless and as always.....many, many hugs.....:-)

What a lovely day you had. I sat at a double header baseball game. Two hours inbetween games. Game across a small street fair in the town square. Windy day, but not cold, not hot.Mexican food for dinner. Guess that is a pretty happy day. too.

I must have caught it from you.

Happy Sunday must have been catchy. I slept in and my husband brought me breakfast in bed. Then a double header in baseball for my youngest son. Caught a nap in betweeen games. Then Mexican food and home. Nice day.

Hurrah to Sundays!

Bernie, one thing that I learn from you every single day is to count your many blessings and name them one by one.

I just went to Diana's blog and I hope he comes home soon! Loads of love Bernie

Sounds like a lovely day, Bernie, I am not much for watching curling on tv, but I do like me some baseball. I hope your friends husband gets home soon. Take care my friend, have a great week.

Diana said...

Good Morning Bernie,
Wow three girls under five! I wish her much patience when they turn are twelve, thirteen and fourteen!
I caught about five minutes of the news last night and saw that the Yankees won! I thought of you immediately Bernie. That had to top your day off just right!
I am going to the hospital soon as our doctor is supposed to be there this morning,I don't want to miss him. I will let you know later what I hear. Thank you for the prayers Bernie!
Love Di

Oh Bernie I just read that you lost a son a 28. I know that was hard. Congratulations on your new family. That is just a wonderful thing that you are doing. Blessings. Hope you have a good day today.

Good morning Bernie,
Your Sunday seemed made to order, good game, good food, and good company, especially the 3 little girls!

I spent much of the weekend with Alivia, her maternal grampa is in the hospital with complications after carotid artery surgery!

Hope our internet provider has fixed their problems, I hate missing eveyone's postings and getting behind.

It's cold enough here that you could see the breath of a large buck in the field just now! It's almost time to rake some leaves too, they are getting pretty deep out there!

Luv and Smiles,
Wanda

Eileen said...

Sounds like a beautiful day, Bernie!

And I'm happily surprised to hear you say 'my Yankees'! Sweet!
Ray, of course, is in his glory about it all!

I have to catch up on everyone, I have some things going on here at home (always some kind of drama going on when you have a big family, I guess it comes with the territory), but I'm going to try and read back over the next few days.

I will add your friend's husband to my prayer list.
So nice to be reading and visiting with you again, Bernie!
I've missed you!
Love to you!, Eileen

Margie said...

A day full of great food, good friends and beautiful children ...well, I would say you had a perfect day!
Wonderful!

It's very wintery here this morning but I'm going to bundle up and take a walk with Jake before I go to work ... don't have to be at work till 10:30 .... I know the brisk (brisk, what I am talking about, it's freezing out there, only 18 degrees .... BRRRRRR!)air will wake me up!

Have a great day, Bernie!

HUGS!

Margie:)

Brenda said...

Life is good. Glad that you had a happy day. There is something wonderful about children that brightens everything even after they are gone, the glow remains.

Gail said...

HI BERNIE-

Oh what a lovely Sunday you had - from beginning to end. I so enjoy how you experience life - and enjoy the simplest of gifts that surround you. :-) You are a true inspiration and blessing by how you live your life and I thank you.

Love Gail

Bernie said...

Hi Jackie, after reading your post I think I'll hit the highway instead of the Tim's for coffee to meet new friends....LOL Have a great day my friend....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Bernie said...

Hello Tranquility, I have too stop myself from typing Stillness. I do count my blessings every day as when I look back on my day each evening it helps me realize just how blessed I am......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Cinner, I was going to ask you if you lived close to where the curling was held this weekend but I guess you wouldn't have known, that's okay we all enjoy different things, have your best day cinner.

Bernie said...

Hi Diana, the 3 little girls were adorable and yes they will keep their mum busy as teenagers and their father even busier...LOL

Bernie said...

A/C, so happy you and your family had a relaxing day.......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Peggy, my son was 26 when he passed away and it was a very difficult time in my life....something a mother never gets over but does learn to accept and move forward.
I begin hospice with a new family tomorrow, it is a sad time but rewarding as well.....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Good Morning Wanda, did you get a picture of the buck? How wonderful you had Alivia with you on the weekend, now that would of been fun. I do hope her grandfather gets well soon.....have a great day my friend.....Hugs to Alivia..:-)

Bernie said...

Eileen, so good to have you home. Looking forward to hearing about your holiday. Eileen, my friend's husband is Jake, Diana's husband. I know you have been away and probably didn't realize he was sick and in hospital....I think she needs us now as her burdens have been pretty heavy lately.... Have a great day.....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Margie, I didn't realize you worked outside the home.... I am so happy Jake is getting better.
Enjoy your walk my friend and I do hope your knee is better....Hugs

Bernie said...

Brenda, children do add so much fun to everything and I agree there is a glow that remains even after they go home......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Gail, my life is very simple and I love it, I am exactly where I am suppose to be and I love that too. Love is good my friend and so easy to enjoy.......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Julie, I couldn't understand why I had an odd number of comments after I responded....I just noticed your comment came through twice, love Mexican food and happy you had a great day....:-) hugs

Rose Marie Raccioppi said...

Well for many this was a special day for a special team and so heard from border to border, "yay my Yankees won." A sweet touch added to your savory day for sure.

CHEERS!

Choices said...

Hi Bernie,
You certainly had a busy day. It sounds like you are happy that the Yankees won! Go Yankees!
I hope you have another wonderful day.
Take care.

Barb said...

Your day sounds perfect, Bernie - food for the spirit and the body and the soul! Continue with a good week ahead!

Blessings each day said...

Your good days make my good days even gooder (there really should be such a word).

So sweet to picture you walking and out and about and you don't even let the cold weather keep you inside!!

blessings and warm hugs,

marcy

p.s. I prayed for you by name again at Mass tonight.

The Retired One said...

I bet you were a great babysitter for those little girls!
Those walks outside in the brisk air feels good sometimes, and it feels even better to get back to a warm, cozy living room full of friends and a good meal.
Stay warm and I hope the best for your friend's health....
luv from me to you...

Bernie said...

Heidi, Amy, you and your family has been on my mind since Friday night.....for not having met Amy my heart has been so heavy for her and her family, she is now at peace with no pain again ever! God Bless you sweetie.....:-) Hugs
