Wednesday- Whistle While You Work

Guess what I spent my afternoon doing? My mom has a friend who is moving in a few days and she needed someone to help her clean the apartment and pack. She is disabled, similar to the way I was before surgery. My heart breaks for her because I KNOW what she is feeling and going through. Just a year ago I was the one stuck in a chair or bed unable to cook or clean for myself. Today I cleaned her bathroom, scrubbed the shower, tub, walls toilet etc. I also had a chance to sit a talk with her a little. I hope that my presence there and my testimony of getting my life back will encourage her to take the first steps as well. I will go back tomorrow and clean the oven and refrigerator.

My favorite Disney movie is "The Jungle Book" I bought myself the DVD last year when it went on sale. I remember watching that as a young girl...I smile thinking about it.
My dad got a new puppy. Her name is Bella and they said she weighs 4 pounds. I can't wait to meet her when I get there on June 30th.

Good for you, Kathy, that is an awesome report of what you can now do. Plus, you are sewing seeds of kindness, and you shall reap seeds of kindness.

Bella is precious. What kind of dog is she?

I'm hard pressed to pick a Disney favorite, but Lady and the Tramp was always well loved in our house.

How wonderful for her to have someone show true servanthood and compassion to her. And how wonderful for you to be able to do it! What a blessing!

Favorite Disney movie......Homeward Bound. Wasn't that a Disney?

That is such a wonderful thing for you to do for someone.

Aw, Bella's a cutie!


Hard to choose a Disney film, I like so many of them. I'd have to say that the last one that i really liked A LOT and could watch over and over again is Ratatouille. I know, rats in a kitchen! But it's a cute movie.

Here's a list of Disney films:

I'm proud of you.

Supercalafragilisticxbealadocious is my favorite song

and Herbie goes to Monte Carlo was my favorite movie, I think.

Bella is adorable! On our walk to the park, we saw another cute puppy, black with white feet, who was named Bella too. Coincidence!

My favorite Disney Song would be Hakuna Matata. I love the Lion King and most of the songs in that one are good. Just the music is fun and the animation to that song is perfect.

So when are you going to start being a motivational speaker? I know just by reading your blog, I am motivated! I can't imagine what would happen if I saw you in person...you truly have a great gift!

How nice of you to help your mother's friend. I've got some cupboards that need help if your free! LOL
My favorite Disney movie is actually two: Polyanna and Parent Trap

Krista M said...

That is so nice of you to help out like that. I suffered from depression, and I always try to help out a friend of mine who is going through it by washing her dishes when I visit, picking up a little, and just being there for a good cry and a little wine afterwards.

Disney? Well, I never really watched Disney when I was a kid, but I do love The Incredibles. Saw it on TV by accident one night and just loved it! Now I watch it whenever it's on.

Congrats on your continued success.

My favorite Disney movie is probably Beauty and the Beast, followed closely by The Lion King, which is followed closely by Homeward Bound (the first one), followed by Angels in the Outfield, followed by . . . .

Good for you! I think my favorite Disney movie is the original Parent Trap but there are so many I love. Hard to choose.
