Well winter pack a wallop this week and sent us two winter storms. The snow shoveled off our double driveway is a high as my daughter's VW Beetle. That is a lot of snow. The saving grace is that it's been lighter snow, not the break your back wet stuff. But no matter the weather, it is still a good practice to look back over the week and intentionally look for blessings and good things in our lives. Please join us in sharing 5 of those blessings.

~hard working hubby~ Hubby has shoveled more snow in this week than you can imagine. He not only does our huge double driveway and the front sidewalk but the back walk and parking area, then he goes to my mom's and shovels her big ol' driveway too! I am so grateful for him doing all this hard work. He is out there before I even get out of bed. I won't take this for granted at all as I know not all husbands are willing or can do all that shoveling.
~the snow~ yes, it actually made my list because it was such a beautiful, peaceful snow both times it dumped on us. It didn't come with the crazy wind that would make it a blizzard, it was just light and fluffy and thick and Christmas card-ish. Now to be clear, I'm not crazy about the slippery roads and white out conditions on the highways and all the work for hubby, but watching it out my front window it was lovely.
~taste of summer~ This week I pulled out a container of homemade spaghetti sauce that I had made last September when the tomatoes were harvested. It was so nice on a wintery, stormy day to have that fresh summer taste on our plates.
~small change in haircut~ this last haircut we made a small change and went back to what I had last spring. It was only a small difference, but it made all the difference in the world to how my hair styles and looks. And I love how my stylist doesn't get all offended if I change my mind on something.
~comfy bed~ I had new mattress covers on my to buy for the house list so when I saw some for a great price at Costco so I nabbed one. When I got it home and unpackaged it I noticed it was quite thick. I wasn't too sure how that would be as sometimes those can be quite hot and I like a cool mattress but it has turned out to be so comfortable. We liked it so much I went back and got another for the guest bed. Score on a great product which we needed for a great price!
