All that we behold is full of blessings.
Sometimes life just happens & its so easy to wallow.... I truly believe that's when God can be the clearest though. When we may have to LOOK for the blessings, but they are there... & that's when they are the sweetest...
So this week, these are some of the things I am thankful for....
....Worth noting again - my dad's results came back cancer free. & he's home & healing up nicely! & by nicely, I mean he's back to eating. Success!
.... My mom .... Ever since her "non" stroke (they don't know what happened to her & why her eye is closed & her mouth was drooping).... but her eye opened up Tuesday!!!
... the flower arrangement my mom sent to the funeral home had a cross in it - perfect for our cross wall in our home. I love when our crosses have a personal meaning behind them... this one will be precious to us.
.... Our neighbors.... in the snow, our driveway would take FOR-EV-ER to hand shovel, but I got home from work to find our drive has been plowed & cleared off for me to get from the road straight to the garage. I honestly can't express how much that means to me... I may not shovel it myself (my shoulder, I can't) but I sit there & worry about Ricky having to shovel after walking 15 miles for his work day.... know that part in the Bible that says, "Love thy neighbor"? We got that covered!
.... No Snow this week!! I'm so over snow!!! We may have the cold to deal with still for the next few days, but as long as there's no more snow, I'm good.
.... Going along with that idea - thankful to see pavement again. Most of the roads are FINALLY getting cleared off. I literally can not walk on snow & ice so this clutzy girl is so happy to see the asphalt shining through.
|yep... this is about right....|
.... My first Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee. It wasn't bad. It wasn't "McDonald's" level iced coffee, but it was way better then Starbucks version. & its something I can run out & grab at lunch on beat up afternoons.
.... Filling up my car before gas rose 50 cents in one afternoon. How does it raise that much in an hour? I don't get it. .... still thankful that even at its highest right now ($2.49) its still lower then $4.00 a gallon.
.... Hobby Lobby. I had to wait after work to meet up with Ricky to go to the funeral home to see Ricky's sister, Pam & her husband. What better place to wait then Hobby Lobby? Ricky said he was trying to hurry.... no worries. Give me all the time you need as long as I can stand in all things yarn & crafty.
... a surprise at the door. We got home last night & had a box at the door. Opened it up & saw this beautiful stepping stone that our youngest had sent since she couldn't make the funeral (lives in Iowa).... Ricky & I both had our mouths just dropped. Isn't it beautiful? As soon as he pulled it out, I saw that it was engraved with the name & date.... oh my goodness... how precious.
