Count your blessings name them one by one.

Hmmm. It was a baaaad day. So, I'll count my blessings so as to remind myself.

*The weed wacker is fixed. Wahooo! I'm cutting down the jungle in the garden's aisles tomorrow. Thank you Steve, for fixing it for me.♥

*My computer has worked now for a couple of weeks straight, knock on wood.

*I have had great conversations with two of my closest friends this week.

*Lost Season 5 is so much better than Season 4. This is very important for Steve, his sleep, and his pillow. During Season 4's viewings I was in constant defense mode while I slept, even once throwing Steve's pillow across the room while thinking it was really a map to somewhere to keep us safe from The Others. Poor Steve. He can rest easy for now.

*Matt had a great time canoeing during Scouts.

*Michael was invited to Scouts for the first time by a wonderful, dear lady who just became his den leader. And I trust her to be kind, gentle and patient with him.

*Amber and Steve came home safely (although Amber is burned to a crinkle crisp.)

*Jared's diabetes is under control for now. Yay! WTG Jared!

*It is finally warm outside!! And my garden is growing! And the flowers are blooming!

*My squash plant has an itty-bitty squash on it. :) :)

*Everyone in my household is well for a minute.

*I bought chocolate chips tonight. I will make cookies tomorrow. :D

*I stocked up on fruit for breakfast! Maybe I can lose a pound or two.

*The receipt for my mom's rent for her nursing home was found. Have I ever mentioned that I detest working with cash, cashier's checks, and money orders? There is no paper trail to prove payment. BUT, the receipt was found!

*My children have been more peace-able with each other lately.

*Emily is excited to have animal chores passed on to her, and I know she will be a great caregiver to them. I haven't had to remind her once!

*Oh. I never told you why I was nervous a few months ago. Steve's company was bought out by another company. We didn't know if they would hire him, or if we would be jobless. He *was* hired. :) And we had insurance right away, which is a HUGE blessing for our family.

*So glad that we are all safely home this evening and enjoying each other's company.

Things are actually pretty darn good. :)


  1. So glad to hear the new company kept Steve. What a relief.
    That is funny that your dreams are so vivid that you threw the pillow.
    Good blessings.
    May they continue.
    ♥ Joy

  2. So much to be thankful for...

    This is a great idea to list blessings. :)
