Counting My blessings On A Sunday Afternoon
is where I reflect on a few of the many blessing and special moments in my life at the end of every week♥
This week I am especially thankful for!…
~A lot of fun time spent with Lovey at our mall’s play area, the aquarium, Chuck E. Cheese, the movies to watch Rise Of The Guardians and his favorite place, the inflatable play land in town.
~A mug rack for our kitchen, right next to the Keurig for easy access. 😉
~Lovey has been putting himself to bed without my help lately. He tells me he’s going to “take a nap” every night at bedtime then five minutes later he is sound asleep for the night in his bed.
~I have been on a peach kick lately so I am loving my new lavender and peach blossom candle. It smells of so lovely.
~Playing hopscotch on the front porch with Lovey. I drew the hopscotch with chalk and he decorated around it. I sit on the door step and watch him jump along and when invited, I join in for a hopscotch race to see who can jump the quickest. Sweet. Simple. Perfect moments in time.
~When I was a little girl, Disney’s Pocahontas was one of my favorite movies to watch. After having not seen it for close to fifteen years, it came on the Disney channel this afternoon and I have to admit that I set down and watched some of it while the boys were out of the house. It brought a smile to my face and flooded my memory with happy childhood memories.
~My heart goes out to all those affected by the tragic events in America this week like the Boston bombings and the explosion in Texas. I know that sometimes it can be difficult and feel almost selfish to indulge in the little things that bring joy to our lives when so many are consumed by such sorrow and pain. The beauty of life is if you consciously choose to live yours in love, acknowledging all the moments that make up your one wild and precious life you will radiate a light that will uplift and encourage those you come into contact with. A light that will transcend the bad. A spiritual paying it forward. Often when tragedy strikes the only thing to do is pray. Then when you get up off your knees, embrace the light in your life so that it will shine so brightly that others who are experiencing a period of darkness will be reminded of the light also inside them.
Light will always beget light.
Always choose love. Always choose gratitude. Always choose light ♥
Thank You Lord, for Your many gracious blessings in my life!
