Just a short post to say that I'm thankful for the many blessings in my life. Even though I have had headaches for weeks, now have a cold, and struggle with other health issues (not to mention lost my baby girl not long ago)... God is shedding light on my days and showing me things for which to be thankful.
These light pink carnations were given to us 4 weeks ago at Anna's memorial service. They are just now about done - the last of her flowers, and my favorite. They have been a heartwarming reminder of her delicate beauty.
Last night I air-popped some corn and watched a fun movie with Matt. It was nice to sit, snack and laugh while cuddled up on the couch. My husband is such a blessing. Just his touch on my shoulder can calm me through.
Today, my focus has been largely on my son. Isaac is 22 months old, filling our home with new words every day in his toddler voice, running all over, and pointing out the beauty in simple things. I love his laugh, and I can't put enough kisses on his sweet cheeks. I am blessed to be home with him. Today we got to blow bubbles outside, read several books, play with many toys, and laugh together.
A special delivery came today from my friends & coworkers at Art 'n Soul. It's a collage in celebration and memory of Anna Joy. Each of them filled a few of the sections of the tray in their own style. My heart is touched by their creativity, time, and love put into it.
Take time to see blessings in your day. Through art, the people around you, or a cherished memory...
