New Saturday Night Ritual

Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes of which all men have some.
  - Charles Dickens

It's Saturday night. Do you know what your blessings are?

I'm all done with what I'm going to accomplish tonight - note that I didn't say I was done with everything that is on my to-do list. It's after 11pm. I'm wiped, so I quit. But before I go to bed, it seemed like a good idea to count my blessings.

Today is the end of a week. Tomorrow, a new week will begin. I can't think of a better way to end my week than with a list of some of the ways God has blessed this week.

  • I started a blog! It's been a really fun and rewarding experience! I would love for it to take off.
  • S3 had a great 5th birthday, and we will celebrate with friends tomorrow.
  • S2 and S1 had good baseball games and are really improving in the sport. 
  • I got to spend all of Field Day with my guys this week enjoying beautiful weather and good friends.
  • I worked with DH to decorate a cake tonight. I really enjoy decorating cakes, but a camouflage cake was beyond me. DH jumped in and helped me get something that kind of resembles a camouflage cake. It was fun to work with my man, and I'm blessed to have a husband who jumps in to help.

Now I think I'm all set to start my week with my focus set where it needs to be.

What about you? Do you have any blessings to count?

Maybe life is really hard right now. I understand. I've been there. Life can get really tough. Does that mean there aren't any blessings? No, they are just not as easy to see. Please try. God has not left you alone. He has been there with you all week. Look for His hand at work. He loves you!
