Hello everyone and welcome to a snowy FFF. We got a good dump of heavy wet snow and now it's melting a bit and the wind came and knocked some more leaves off the trees. So now the back yard is a big old yucky mess of snow and wet leaves and it's supposed to snow again all week. But that is all ok. I'm grateful for the pretty much lovely weather we have had up until now. And so much more to be grateful for! Join us in taking the pause out of our busy lives and finding the blessings from the last week.
~ friends ~ I am so thankful this week for friends. Friends who make time when they know you need a listening ear, encouraging words and are ready to pray for you at a moment's notice. I don't know how I would have managed the last couple of years without them.
~ two year old's sense of humor ~ one of the little guys in my dayhome has quite the sense of humor. He cracks me up continuously through out the day with his funny comments, antics and his giggles. The strangest things crack him right up and his laughter gets me laughing which I really need right now to relieve the stresses life has handed me at the moment. I am grateful for his laughter and light heartedness in my life.
~ supportive helpfulness ~ in my work as a child care provider, I have had to move from a private dayhome of 32 years to contracting with a licensed and approved child care agency. This has been a horribly hard decision but one I was forced to make due to new government granting and subsidies for parents which are only available through licensed daycares and agencies. It is pretty much putting private providers out of business. The agency I finally chose to contract with has been so supportive and helpful and available and has really tried to make the transition easy for me. They have been very empathetic to how hard of a move this has been for all the private providers and I am very grateful to them.
~ feather quilt ~ my feather quilt has made it's appearance on the bed for the winter. I'm sure I put this on my faves every November but I just love it. When the summer blankets are no longer warm enough to get us through nights that are consistently getting down to freezing, I can't wait to get under my quilt. I find it some comfy and cozy.
~ coffee placed into my sleepy hands ~ coffee all made and fixed just the way I like it as soon as I come into the kitchen in the morning is a huge blessing as I am not a huge morning person and it takes me a while to get my brain & body up and running for the day. My wonderful hubby listens for me getting up and always has it ready to drink for me in my favorite mug. I'm so grateful for this act of love and service from him towards me.
