Welcome to a very chilly, snowy Friday everyone. Here in Alberta we're experiencing our second snow dump of the season. But no matter, it's still a good day to look for blessings. Feel free to join in, no matter the weather where you are as we try to become more thankful people. The following quote could not be more true.
My favorite blessings I am thankful for this week:
The Word of God. I'm not gonna lie, this week has been a bit of a struggle for me. Another long time family from the dayhome had their last day. I finally got to the dentist who had not good news for my aching molar. Long story short, it's a goner. Stress related to having to replace too many children in the dayhome all at once. The sad news of the attack in New York. It all presses in. But I'm so thankful that in times like that I have to Word of God to turn to to receive encouragement and have my faith built that God is good God and He is there even in the midst of struggle, chaos and pain. I become very aware that not everyone has the blessing of having as many bibles as they could possibly want laying around the house such as we have in this country.
Laughter in the midst of a very stressful moment. My youngest daughter and I had a real good belly laugh over a funny misunderstanding today right in the midst of a very stressful moment in my day. I laughed till I cried, it was so silly. I can't share 'cause she asked me not to but suffice it to say that it brought things a bit more into perspective and I'm so thankful we shared that funny.
Caring and giving friends. After I emailed all in my lady's group that I had to cancel because of the toothache, one of the lady's dropped by and gave me a full bottle of a natural oil type thing called Theives that is supposed to help with tooth infections and aches. It was very thoughtful and generous of her and I really appreciated the gesture. It's nice to belong to a group of women, though from such diverse walks of life, that really care and support each other.
Hot tea in the evenings. With the cold weather my craving for hot herb tea in the evenings rise exponentially. My lovely organic peppermint always is the favorite standby by this week I've also enjoyed Bengal Spice and Belleni Peach Orange.
Sunday family meals. With everybody all grown up and moved away or working, our times of the Sunday meal together are all that more precious when they occur. My son was down from his city again this weekend, my youngest wasn't working and we were able to sit down together along with his grandma and enjoy a Sunday meal.
