My list this week will be short, not because of the lack of blessings, but because of the abundance of them (namely 4 in particular).
I’m so thankful my house is clean because of company this weekend. I wonder if any one else’s husband strategically invites company over about every 2 weeks.
I’m so blessed to know a family that just butchered their steer and did not need all the meat and “sold” me some at a “please just take this so we have room in our freezer” price. We’re going to be eating pretty good the next month or so. We went over for a visit and had no idea we’d be coming home with a box full of roasts and ground beef (and a few steaks!)
I’m thankful for a warm fire on these cold days.
I’m thankful for snow that covers the ground. So many people in this house have been waiting for that for so long.
I’m thankful for all the snuggles I’ve gotten with Solveig lately. She got another tooth this week and has been running a small temperature. I’m not thankful she’s been feeling crummy, but there is always an upside, and the upside is I’m privileged enough to be the one she wants to snuggle. Babies don’t just pick anyone, you know.
I’m thankful for a mom who not only supports me as a mother, but loves Knut like a son. I wish she lived closer.
I’m so blessed with a husband who gets the kids breakfast after another tough night with a baby who is waking often because of these teeth (and some recent shots).
If you want to join the “I’m Blessed” party, go ahead and leave a comment, or if you’re a blogger, you can leave a link to your very own “I’m Blessed” post for us to go read. Just be sure to put a link in your post to this blog. It’s good to share the specific ways that God has blessed us. He knows our needs and our deepest desires and blesses us in so many unique ways. It is good to remember and reflect on what He has done.
