Well that happened. It is after 2 o'clock here and it just now dawned on me that it is Friday. How did that get by me? Whew, what a week. It has been hard and exhausting and one day has melted into the next with me on survival mode. But it's never to late to take note of the blessings from the week and to be grateful, right?
~ Birthday celebrations ~ Sunday was Hubby's birthday so our son came down from the big city (about a 2 hour drive) on Friday afternoon just to take his Dad and me for a birthday dinner. What a blessing that was, that he would take his time off and come see us just for that. His sister was unable to come with him but she sent a lovely card and itunes gift card and phoned him on Sunday. Our oldest daughter also phoned and chatted with him for quite a long time which I know he loved. Then for lunch on Sunday, Hubby had asked if we could go to a fave brunch with our good friends, so that is what we did. It was great fun! The chef blessed Hubby by giving him his lunch on the house (he is a client of Hubby's) and our friends sneakily paid the rest of the bill.
~ beautiful days ~ it has been a super stressful week in the dayhome this week. But we're being blessed with incredibly nice weather for this time of year so I have been able to get the kids outside everyday! Even though on the day we had to wear snowsuits to stay warm and it took me half an hour to get them all out the door, being outside was a life saver each and every single day. So thankful for the weather we've been having though I hope we don't pay for it in February!
~ helpful spouse ~ I know I've said it before but I'm so thankful for the helpfulness of my hubby. He noticed I was having a rough week and he goes out of his way to give a hand when he sees something he can do. He knows one of my prominent love languages is acts of service and I'm so grateful for it.
~ at home movie date ~ We haven't done one in a while but on the weekend we had an at home movie date. We watched Red Notice on Netflix, an action comedy that we found amusing though we did wish Ryan Reynold's character didn't rely on swearing so much to be funny.
~ moments of quiet and peace ~ grabbing these whenever I can where ever I can and am so thankful for them right now.
What are your favorite blessings from this last week?
