I made a List

For the last two weeks sickness has been going through my kiddos. I thought everyone was getting well, but then earlier this week Jack came down with the flu. This morning I was feeling pretty discouraged, and honestly just plain lonely. We've been cooped up in our house, we haven't found a Church yet, and we haven't really made any friends. We don't have family near by, and I think I was just wanting to have a little pity party for myself.

I was struggling. I knew I needed to be content, but nothing in me wanted to be. I remembered that in the past when I had felt really discouraged, it had been helpful to make a list of all the blessings in my life. Believe me, that was the last thing I wanted to do, but I still gave it a try.

1. God providing a job for my husband. That alone should make me stop feeling sorry for myself!

2. Beautiful fall weather( October through December is my favorite time of year!)

3. Seeing prayers be answered in "little" situations.

4. Such an encouraging little man. Jack's always telling Erik, his siblings, or me what a great job we are doing-while unloading groceries, or when Erik brings home doughnuts, or while I'm making dinner, etc..It's hilarious.

5. Little girls who love to dress themselves, and think that three different shades of pink makes for a beautiful outfit.

Case in point :)

6. Sweet baby giggles.

7. Fun new recipes(and almost all of them have been successful!)

8. Starbucks and Target only being 10 minutes away from my house. Does that sound pathetic? 

9. Kids who love to help, and me finally loosening up enough to let them.

  1. Not gonna lie, I'm a little jealous of number 8! *hugs* Miss you. I've been feeling this way a bit lately too. Zane's been sick for about forever and we've been locked up in the house too. Praying we all make it to church tomorrow...if we do it will be the first time I've been to church on a Sunday in like a month...or more.


I love reading your comments, and I also love responding to them!
