Counting Blessings - day 11

  1. Laughter - o what a blessing it is to be able to laugh!  Yesterday my husband had me giggling on and off all day. I came downstairs in the morning to find a large red envelope lying on the kitchen table for me.  No guessing needed for what was inside... or was there?  I opened my card with a smile on my face and read the words on the front.....   To My Husband, with all my love.    !!!  Husband??  O boy did I have a laugh at that!  Every time I looked at the card I just couldn't help myself but to have another giggle!  Whatever must have the clerk at the store thought when he bought it?!  hah
  2. Alex has a new phone! - Perhaps on the surface that seems like more of his blessing than mine, but his phone was at a very limited working level and badly needed replacing.  It made for more challenging contact and I'm very thankful that he now has a phone in good working order.  :)
  3. Seasons - aren't the seasons so beautiful, each one capturing it's own unique beauty.  I'm thankful to live in a country that experiences each season so completely.  Is stunning to watch.  I always used to say that Autumn was my favourite season, but now I realise that I have a love for each season and the particular beauty it brings.
  4. Living on a cul-de-sac - I feel to blessed to live on a cul-de-sac.  It feels safe, the road is rarely used and it's so quite.   :)
  5. Our 'Long Story Short' book - in the mornings before we start our book work we sit down together and study God's word.  Recently we have been using the book 'Long Story Short' as a tool for this time and it has been excellent.  We're really enjoying it.  :)
  6. Dress up clothes - O my boys LOVE to dress up.  We have a beautiful, large box (from TKmax) which is home to lots of dress up items and clothes. So much fun!  
  7. Roses - Coming down to my beautiful bunch of roses this morning was lovely - they are SO beautiful.   God has blessed us with such huge variety of stunning flowers hasn't He! 
  8. Baby Listeners - the house (dormer bungalow) that we live in has 2 bedrooms upstairs and 1 downstairs.  This means that we have kids on a different level to us and having my baby listener has been so useful and helpful for this situation.  It is a comfort to me knowing that I'm listening in in case anyone needs me.
  9. You! - my readers... you are such an encouragement to me and bless my heart!  Thank you. 
  10. My Comfy Bed - I have been very blessed to have been given a high quality memory foam, pocket sprung mix mattress.  My husband took pity on me when I was laid up in bed week after week while I was pregnant with my son Uzziah.  I was very poorly for the last month of his life and Alex decided to secretly buy me a new mattress as our old one was rather naff.  I was completely overwhelmed and when I sat on it for the first time it felt like I was sitting on a cloud.  O it was so comfortable and certainly did make the world of difference to me for those weeks I remained there.  It still is an incredibly comfortable mattress and I'm SO thankful for it.
