Today the clouds rolled in, no complaining, for we have several days of gorgeous weather. But it has left me feeling a little blue. I fight this insignificant thing in my life that the enemy would just like to make me believe and bring sadness to me, shut me down! A disappointment in myself that leaves me feeling lonely and depressed. So, as I was going thru my day, the Lord reminded me of several things that brought my spirits up and made me think maybe I do matter after all.
First, I found this picture of my mom and the sisters that I love.
Then those sweet puppies, they are so much fun, they opened their eyes. That Momma, she is a good one, she keeps them fed so well, keeps them clean, it’s a JOB!
Doesn’t she look thrilled, and acting all private, cracks me up.
Oh, so tired!
Look at this little guy, Ruby went to get up and he is hangin’ on for dear life. So stinkin’ funny!
And then, I get this text from my sweet friend asking what my favorite verse was and I texted her back with it. This is what she brings me a couple of days later. I love my sign (I have them up in my house all over) this one is dear to my heart, first because it’s my verse, second of all it is handmade by Leanne. Talent and love this girl gives to me. Thanks my dear…I love it!
And then, as I was bagging my groceries my sweet Corvan calls me on the phone to ask me, “are you on your way home?” I said I would be home in a little bit and asked if something was wrong. He said, “no, just miss you, so GET HOME!”
And then, what is it about watching your man ‘play with your kids’? Doesn’t it just make a Momma’s heart swell? I love it when he gets tickled over something they say or do….this makes me just want to burst inside.
I was on facebook today and this quote from a very wise friend said, “loneliness comes when we forget the ONE who is always with us.” Wow, this put thing right back into perspective.
Ok, these things do make a girl smile and realize I am blessed beyond measure.
