I decided to join Ann Voskamp and some other ladies in the simple act of counting and naming our blessings. They do this on Mondays. It is a way to remember the goodness of God. Sounds so simple, but I miss it so often. So here we go:
#1. Second chances. Third, fourth.....
#2. A heavy crocheted blanket to huddle under (man, it's cold out today!)
#3. A financially saavy husband
#4. Going back to the start.
#5. The quiet of naptime.
#6. Bras that fit. A little TMI maybe, but to a post-nursing mom (or nursing, or pregnant, etc.) this can be such a big deal!
#7. Getting a break from sharing my body (see above.)
#8. The anticipation of a visiting friend.
#9. Busting a move on the dance floor.
#10. Celebrating with a family who needed a good celebration. Congratulations, Jen and Alex!
It's been a real wild week. Ava is teething and we're experiementing with different kinds of milks which seems to have led to some gastrointestinal fun as well. She's just not herself these days, and that has had it's difficult moments for Mr. Wonderful and I. All the more reason to recognize the ways God is amazing.
I wanted to note as well that the Get Your Laura Ingalls On party is not just for experts! I hope you'll link up even if it's just something that you're trying for the first time, which is what I plan to do. I'm off to make the most of the rest of naptime... :0)
