This is one of those days when I do not feel like being thankful for the “hidden blessings.” I wouldn’t mind some very visible blessings, like… oh I don’t know – my sinus infection/chest cold disappearing miraculously; bills paying themselves with some “extra” money; or Mary Poppins stopping by to snap her fingers and do my housework for me while I consume her spoonfuls of sugar in one ravenous gulp.
*Sigh* I always have more to be thankful for than I remember.
This week my husband was couched (as in forced to lie on the couch) for days in a row with a wretched stomach bug which the Lord has kept me and Riley from catching.
Riley’s 1st birthday was fun and special despite our health issues. A visit from Grammom and Boppa with soup and an Elmo balloon did a lot to cause that. Doesn’t hurt to stick a candle in a dinner muffin either.
It’s sunny and warming after rain and a windy cold snap.
We got in line first at the post office today and enjoyed primo parking.
My feet are up (yeah nap time!), there’s a cookbook on the couch next to me, there’s a roof over my head, and my husband has his twinkly eyes back.
I’m never to old or sick to sing: God is so good, God is so good, God is so good, He’s so good to me.
