Fridays are Full of Blessings 3-7-08

Each week I’ve been encouraging readers to count their blessings, especially through life’s madness. We can all find reasons to highlight the negative as it happens every day, but God gives us so much to be thankful for if we only look for it. Even if it’s small, seeing it and acknowledging it can give you something to get you through the day.

This weeks blessings for me come easy.

**Everyone for the most part is healthy in our house. We’re past the crud and finally on the home stretch.

**Tomorrow is my son’s birthday party and half have RSVP’d. It’s going to be a great turn out for my son at 16+ kids.

**I’m driving a fun car while mine’s in the shop. I was supposed to get a Ford Fiesta, but the rental car place didn’t have any lower end cars when I showed up. I got a SUV upgrade for the same price and a Fred Flinstone runner.

**We re-arranged my son’s room, which gives him more floor room to play. Less toys are making their way into the living room…which means less clutter for me to pick up.

**I got to talk to one of my best friends this week on the phone. She’s known me forever, and it’s so easy just to be when I talk to her.

**I’ve got some really exciting things on the horizon, that I know are part of God’s plan for me. I can’t wait to list them on any upcoming Friday’s to come.

**My husband, although stressed, has been so sweet. He loves to joke around with me…I’m blessed that he never gives up on me or on us.

**My son only had one tantrum this week! YAY! Huge blessing for me as he’s going through a phase right now…and not a fun one.

I encourage you again to track your blessings for the week, and BE thankful for them. It helps me some days ‘just to get through the day’…and other days it helps me soar. If you’re able to…let me know you’re doing this so I can read up on yours. Have a great weekend!

Mimi has a cool meme going on right now too. Check it out!

  2. You always raise my spirits. Thank you for reminding me that the little blessings are just as important as the big ones.

  3. Hi, I really appreciate the invitation to be part of your “Friday’s are full of Blessings”. However, I must decline at this time. I really enjoy reading all of the others though and I enjoy your blog. Keep up the good work.

  6. I posted this elsewhere, but I will post again…

    Although I mourn the loss of my grandfather, I am thankful for the small inheritance he left me which has allowed us to take a big bite (about 12%) out of our credit card debts. God bless him for remembering us even in his pain and troubles during the end of his life.
