Here it is, the last Friday of January. Already. Can't believe this 1st month of 2023 is already almost done. Time just seemed to race by me this month as such a pace that if I wasn't pausing each week to intentionally note some blessings I'm sure the would have just escaped me as I scurried to catch up. Are you finding this too? Or is it just me? At any rate let's take notice of this week's blessings God has brought to us in our everyday and share five of them.
~ rug spot cleaner ~ I know a weird thing, but we finally got a little spot cleaner. We've always had the big rug cleaner but it's a legit professional cleaner so to lug that thing upstairs to clean something smaller was just insanity. I can't even do it by myself, my hubby has to do it. I've always wanted a portable one and finally got one. I can't tell you how many times I've already used that thing. Thankful for these modern appliances that help make things so much easier.
~ no major injury after a hard fall ~ Sunday afternoon when walking the dog I stepped on snow covered ice and my feet flew out from under me and I took a really hard fall on my hip. Yowzers that really hurt. I just thank God that I didn't break anything especially my hip. Took a couple days for the bruise to start showing and it's sore to directly lay on the spot but otherwise it is a-ok and my life has not been affected by it.
~ chocolate covered espresso beans ~ love them, but it's a treat I never, ever buy myself. My friend gifted me a little bag and I've slowly been enjoying them.
~ great deal on a gift ~ what a blessing to find the perfect gift for 2/3 off the regular price. Love when I run into great deals at the perfect time.
~ perfect book at the perfect time ~ I love when a book I've had lying around forever that I haven't read yet just makes it into my hands at the perfect time for when I needed it. Something that a year ago wouldn't even make me take notice or would seem boring or irrelevant is all of a sudden just what I need to learn or hear or be encouraged by. I love reading and find the fact that we North America for the most part have such unlimited access to books such a huge blessing.
What are the blessings in your life this week that have lifted you?
