When I saw the word blessings this morning you know what I immediately thought of?
My day yesterday. 🙂
It was a rainy/cloudy type morning so we kinda honestly vegged. My lad wanted to watch Harry Potter movies and since he was motivated and finished his summer schedule early we did!
This was so nice, spending time with family AND I was able to finally start the book of Romans.
Later we headed out of the house because he had a birthday party to go to. He chatted the WHOLE way there rather than being stuck into his tablet games.
I dropped him off.
Then headed out to visit with my mom.
We had such a delightful visit. Seriously.
We chatted about this and that. Serious moments, light hearted moments, just good time to visit. She took me out and got me a purse, wallet AND supper. 🙂
She even let me borrow her camera so I could take pictures of a small children’s book for a review (it’s coming), looked through it and gave me her comments. Then she kept it as a gift for a wee niece of mine. (daughter of a niece).
Picking up my lad again I had a chance to chat with the birthday boy’s mom. So nice to get caught up again. I was reminded about how I need to take more time to visit with friends.
Then on the way home my lad chatted all the way home again. It was so nice to talk with him, hearing about the things he’s learning about, finding out about the party he was at and all the good things that happened there. Just delightful. We don’t talk enough sometimes I think. It’s so easy in the car to plug in a story to listen to, that we forget to just chat sometimes.
When I got home and after I got him settled, I was so wired from the day that going to bed seemed hard and then a friend contacted me (two actually). One with a request that I was able to fill… which made her happy (which made me happy), and the second was a conversation with another friend (who is close to my heart). 🙂
My heart was so full of the blessings of God.
In the comments… let me know what blessings you’ve received lately so I can celebrate with you eh? 🙂
minded folks who gather on Friday to do a five minute free write around a
singular word. AND THEN (and this is the most important part) we take the time to offer up encouragement to
each other on this writing journey. It’s fun, though it’s not always
easy, but it is always good. Come join us won’t you? You are always
