Blessing Wednesday

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend and a beautiful beginning to your week. There's got to be oh so many things to be thankful for today, and I hope you join me in just naming a few of them. From big to little, it doesn't matter. What does matter is focusing on our blessings. There's power in that:)

Today I am oh-so-thankful for:

1 - My cuddly dog who wraps his not-so-little body in my lap and snuggles with me. (though I'm not sure if he's cuddling with me or my blanket)

2 - My super-soft fleece blanket that my kids and hubby made for me. Each time I wrap up in it, I'm reminded of how much they love me.

3 - Nyquil and Dayquil...

4 - Puffs Plus

5 - A cup of hot tea and honey.

What about you all? Share:)


  1. Okay, the Nyquil and Dayquil comment make me think you might not be filling well...I hope that's not the case, but if it is, I hope you get well soon!!

    I love soft fleece blankets too...and fleece pajama pants.

    Today I'm working hard to remind myself that my day job is truly a blessing. So that's my blessing for the day. :)

  2. Love it, Melissa! That's what I want to do...look at the things that may be struggles right now and turn them into blessings. It doesn't make everything magically perfect, but I fully believe the JOY of the Lord is our strength, so we gotta push ourselves toward finding that 'joy' and resting in His strength:)Praying for encouragement for your day at work:) And some chocolate too, b/c chocolate just makes everything better!

  3. Count me in on the fleece blankets and fleece pajama pants! I'm going to miss them in the summer!

    Today, I'm thankful for spring break, even though it's raining and gloomy today. I have a cup of hot vanilla chai tea, a good book to read, and a purring cat in my lap. Life is good! :)

    Hope you're feeling better soon, Susan!
