Who can believe it's already less than a week to Valentine's Day? Wow. The weeks are just flying right on by. It's a good thing I have FFF to help me find and remember the blessings of each week or, poof, they'd be right gone out of my head. Please join me in sharing blessings, large, small and every size in between. Participation details are linked in the side bar if you are new.
1. This quote. So true.
"We say 'all we can do now is pray' like prayer is the last kid picked in dodge ball.That's so dumb because prayer is not a last resort. Prayer is a nuclear weapon. Joshua prayed 13 words and called the sun to stand still in the sky.” ~ Steven Furtick
2. Water. I've been trying to up my water intake lately. I've a horrible habit of eating everything but the kitchen sink when, really, I am just thirsty. So I've been trying to be really conscience of when I'm heading towards the fridge and cupboards to remember that and head for the water cooler instead. At our house we have an ionized water filter and it makes the water so refreshing and thirst quenching. Water is slowing becoming a favorite.
3. Voltaren Emulgel. A topical anti-inflammatory, this stuff has been getting me through the work days. Pharmacist recommended me using it 6x a day and when I stay on top of it, it has given considerable relief. It really does help with the pain that's coming from my "sports" injury of a badly strained ligament. I'm slowly starting to see improvement with how long I can be up and around before the knee area really starts to ache, and I have gone from using it every 3 hours to just using it when I've gone and over done it and it really starts to ache.
But instead of grayness, there has been blue sky and sunshine for at least a good portion of some days. I need all that wonderful warmth and vitamin D at this time of year that I can get!
5. A whole lotta help. Hubby has been wonderful over the past week helping with dishes, groceries, vacuuming and whole lot of fetching things from downstairs. I've really appreciated the helping hand this week and it definitely has not gone unnoticed!
What have been your favorites from the past week?
