Do You Ever Just Feel Blessed :) ???

Well I do. Life has it's ups and downs that is for sure. Stressful times come and go, but all works outs in the end, time spent worrying is wasted. I trust in the Lord and he is GOOD!  "Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord". Psalm 31, verse 24. I just so love this verse, I find it so encouraging.

Anyway today lots of little things make me feel blessed:

My husband is feeling much better.

Emily is feeling much better.

I went to the Grabill days parade with daughter Amber and the trio of grandsons - we had a good time.

My sister stopped by with her husband, to get more Kale, and to just hang out and visit - we had a good time.

I made cheese and tomato toasties for everyone for lunch - YUMMY to enjoy fresh produce from the garden. And "break bread" with loved ones. Aren't impromptu gatherings simply the best kind of gatherings.

I made extra toasties and took a couple down to my neighbor Nancy, and a friend who was there working to repair her sink. I am thankful for good friends. I am thankful Nancy is healing well from her knee replacement surgery.

I love that my chickens love all the left over bits and pieces we feed them, oh how they love melon rind.

I am glad I have so much kale to share with my sister and am glad that she is doing so well.

I am looking forward to a sleepover tonight with the grandsons - if it doesn't rain we will have a campfire and cook hot dogs.

I am just glad to be a daughter, a sister, a mom, a grandma, and a friend all of these roles make me feel so blessed.

Like I said, lots of little things make me feel blessed, and I wouldn't trade any of them for the world.

Blessings to you,
