Every Friday, I participate with a group of bloggers who stop and remember 5 highlights of their week. Sometimes our lists are overflowing with blessings and sometimes we have to look hard to find those gems of happiness. However, every week they can be found!
In the natural, nothing much happened this week. Then I began to think of how I love a normal week. Normal means there are no crises to consume me!
1. I love how day after day, my world keeps spinning. I have a beautiful life and I'm thankful for it. I have shelter, plenty of food and clothes, rewarding work and dreams and ambitions to keep me going!
2. Monday was a holiday, and I love me some holidays! I love Memorial Day and thinking back to the legacy passed down from our forefathers - both legacies of freedom, and spiritual legacies. I wouldn't be who I am without the benefits that God, country and relatives have passed down to me.
3. Monday was also our oldest daughter's birthday. I was struck by the fact that once I held her in my hands and now she is an adult taller than me! I am thankful that she is healthy, happy and pursuing her dreams!. She is faithful to God - what more could a mother ask? I am very proud of her.
4. Saturday, our fridge (brand new!) acted up and quit cooling. I was tempted to become upset but remembered how many times God has worked out problems for me in the past. Turns out because we had had a few power surges the day before, the refrigerator just needed to be "rebooted." The helpful sales person at Sears told my hubby what to do, and we were back in business! Just another reminder, "do not fret."
