Plan B is for me!

Well, the house is quiet. Molly is in Houston. Megs is still teaching in Ft. Myers, school is not out for her til 15 and then training for 3 days. Brian is at work. Ruth is sleeping, what she does best.

I saw a book I want to read...called Plan B by Pete Wilson. He is a Pastor at Cross Point Comm. Church. I can not go in to it too much...other than when our Plan A is NOT working..we need to reevaluate and go to Plan B. That is where I am right now. I am going to approach 'empty nesting' very soon. That is part of my Plan B. But this book goes into it with hope and reminding me that God is ever present in our Plan B. So I am on a venture to go find this book (hopefully with a coupon) and start to read it.

I am also reading a book called Every Monday Matters (52 ways to make a difference). Molly got it for graduation from some special friends of ours. I thought it was going to be all these service projects (which is not a bad thing...just a "time" thing) but it has a multitude of ways to make a difference in the world from Eat Healthy (No Fast Food Monday), Get Rid of Junk Mail, Donate Books, to Show your Smile Monday. They are all doable...all 52. One is donate blood, so that is what i shall do this Monday. What are you doing to make a difference in the world? I know Ashlie, our dear friend and her hubby are adopting a sweet child,EASTON, from Ethopia! So get out there and make a difference...this book only tells you to do it ONE day a week...try for TWO!

I am also reading (I LOVE TO READ, and now that school is done, i get to..already finished one book in 2 wks) the other book i am reading is...The Power of Half (One Family's decision to stop taking and start giving back) It is a good read. The same friend who gave Molly the "Every Monday Matters" lent me this book.

So whether you are planning a Plan B day, or a Every "day" Monday Matters day, or you are going to stop taking and start giving back...HAVE A GREAT DAY doing it! God has showered me with blessings, amazing I don't even notice HALF of them (or a majority of them) is sad! So shower your God-given blessings to someone else today. Hug a friend, pick up trash, smile more...and do not forget to GIVE GOD THE GLORY in all you do!

In His Timing.....betsy

Your Plan B is a good one!! Those are ALL some great ideas and sound like great books to invest in! I think I might've seen the family from "The Power of Half" on Oprah or something... does that sound right?

Is your daughter, Molly, going to go to school in Houston?? My oldest son and his wife recently moved to Houston.

I just know we'll adjust to this new stage in our life! Thanks for coming by to visit my blog. Hope to hear from you in the future!
