Practicing contentment by remembering thegraces of the week and practicing gratitude through giving.
This picture to the left is what we woke up to this morning. It was an amazing winter wonderland and the absolute perfect snow in our area. It didn't accumulate enough on our driveway to need to shovel and it was mostly melted by tonight. It brought with it a pristine blue sky and moderate temperatures. It was a gorgeous morning!
This week has brought time with friends, and some fun evenings out. Other friends stepped in to watch GTot for our evenings out which is always such a blessing to us!
I read a quote this week on my friend's blog that I absolutely loved: 'Anyone who doesn't treasure my kids, doesn't get to have them'. We are so blessed to have a lot of wonderful folks who truly treasure and enjoy spending time with our daughter and that is the most amazing gift anyone can give the parents of young children!
This week brought the end of soccer season for HandyMan. While I know he will miss this time with his team, I'm looking forward to having him home a little bit more in the coming weeks.
This week was not without its trials and challenges, but even through those I'm learning how to be a better mother, wife and friend.
Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light.” (James 1:16 -The Message) May the light of the Father brighten your week!
