Blessings Monday


A couple weeks ago I was pretty much so stranded on the snow-covered highway with no way to get home.  I was blessed to have a friend nearby who could rescue me and give me a warm place to lay my head for the night.  Looking back makes me grateful for the blessing of being able to get home tonight. 


The entire month of February Keith was working nights.  Last night he was home and able to sleep through the night with me.  I’m grateful for the blessing of sharing a closeness with my Man, especially after so many lonely nights.  I’m also grateful for the blessing of gainful employment for both Keith and myself. 


We are nearing the point where my student loan will be satisfied.  We have 11 more months to pay an exorbitant amount in order to bring a close it.  It’s taken a couple of years longer than expected as we had to defer it when Keith was in Grad-school.  It warms my heart to know that my Honey has developed a plan to pay it off early.  He is a good man!  I am so blessed!


Sometimes difficult times help to remind us of how blessed we truly are.   I’m feeling very blessed right now.  Thank you Jesus!

If I were writing in this column, I'd say that I am so thankful for Jennifer, Keith, Amanda, and John this past week especially. I have wonderful children, and THAT is a blessing. Thanks for all you do and your attentiveness. It does not go unnoticed. Mom
