Counting the Blessings...

I am really not planning on turning the blog into a "gratitude only" blog.  Nor do I want it to be a "post once a month" blog. Life has just been extra busy, extra tough, extra challenging. When I finally get a minute to st down, I seem to fall asleep. :)  Maybe with spring break coming up next week, I can catch up on reading and writing blogs...

But since I have just a few extra moments of energy left, I thought I would catch up on some of gratitudes for the past few weeks.  Trust me, I will only share a small portion.

I am grateful for...
  • watching my former students (now first graders) perform in their Dr. Seuss program
  • a cold Coke after a long day
  • reading a Bible verse at just the right time
  • a husband who goes to the grocery store for me in the snow
  • the legacy of my grandparents
  • dancing freely around my bedroom to my favorite songs
  • afternoon naps
  • the friendship of co-workers
  • a peanut butter chocolate shake made by Child 2
  • seat warmers in my van
  • watching Child 4 crack open eggs for dinner
  • waking up with the dog stretched out next to me
  • a snow-covered lawn
  • late breakfasts
  • new recipes
  • the prayers of friends for my children (and me)
