Today I have been blessed with joy.
After a difficult weekend, today was full of little things that made me smile. They may be little things...but they all added up to bring a smile to my face and joy to my hospital room.
So here's my little list...maybe you'll smile too:
-a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers from my mom & dad...
-reading "The Roots of Endurance" and feeling my faith increase by every page...thank you Holy Spirit for teaching my heart.
-the berry-cream cheese scone from Great Harvest that I ate for breakfast this morning. Thank you Grandma!
-letters in the mail that have answered prayers and lifted burdens...
-Crayola markers...yes, I really like markers.
Actually, these were a gift for my children...ummm, but mommy is borrowing them for now.
-the cute new slippers from my friend Erin...thanks, I love 'em
-my little red Bible...small, stylish, and full of promise after promise, applicable to every circumstance, and a lifeline to my Heavenly Father.
-pictures of my children here on my computer...they make me excited to be back with them and bring good memories of the little blessings that they are.
Smiling yet? I am.
with a thankful heart,
