Today I am Blessed

My heart is still very heavy today. Last night I snuck a peek at Calvin sleeping and felt richly blessed, I wanted to scoop him up and hold him forever.

Today we dropped our car off at the repair shop across the street and Calvin and I began walking home hand in hand and I about lost it, I was overcome with the sweetness of the moment God had given us. So in the midst of this incredible sadness, I'm thankful for the time He has given me with my son.

It seems silly to post anything other than praises to God for all the good in our lives. May you cherish the blessings he has given you today.

Dear God how tragic about the loss of your friends' baby. I will be praying for them! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. After reading about this family, it makes my silly budget woes seem pretty insignificant. I know that God is so proud of how hard I am working on our budget, and my husband comments on my Facebook to tell me how proud he is of me. That is all that matters. We are who we are as a family, with always room for growth, and I just take that as a challenge to change when I can. Have a blessed day!
