Spring is here. Bloosoms are blooming. Butterflies fluttering. Birds singing. It is a blessing to see life renewing itself.

2009 goals and blessing of the week

Well for a blog that was supposed to be a daily blog of blessings in my life I didn't even average one post a week last year. LOL! Not that there weren't many blessings in my life on an almost daily basis but i just didn't think to blog about them here. Don't think there are many who read this blog any way but I don't write any of my blogs for others really they are for me so lets see if I can't be a bit better about this one this year. My goal for this year on here is to blog at least once a week. So here goes first blessing in my life...
well not first but how my life has been blessed recently...
I had a trip to the ER last week that really turned out to be a blessing. Weird I know but here is how...I was shown that while I may be alone I am not unloved or uncared for. there were many who when they found I was at the ER or had been to the ER called or emailed or texted me to see how I was and if there was anything they could do for me. There was the family that took me in so that I would be taken care of while I recovered and so the ER doctor would release me and not admit me. There was the one who paid my ER copay and the one who paid for my meds and or my liquid diet things. There were the kids who took my puppy out so I didn't have to ( with pneumonia going outside and walking my dog was out of the question). There were the people at work who covered for me while I was out and who called to check on me. I learned I was loved. I new that but it was really driven home to me.
Also because of going to the ER I learned that I had some other things going on and was able to get hose taken care of, things that contributed to my visit to the ER but that if I hadn't had to go to the ER I would have never found out about.
A great blessing in my life is having a job where I have health insurance and boy did that insurance card get a work out this week! LOL! For more details on the ER trip check out my timely beauty blog (really need to learn how to do links...)http://www.timelybeauty.blogspot.com

SNOW! There is something very beautiful about snow. Yes, I know it is messy and all. I lived in Michigan and in Utah I know it is a pain and not always fun BUT snow is beautiful. there something very peaceful about it. Well as long as you don't have to navigate the roads too much or are somewhere that they have a plan that works for roadway clearing. In southeast Texas snow is a bit of a miracle! It is rare we get true snow and even more rare that we get it in December. Granted it won't still be here for Christmas, chances are good it won't be here in the morning but it is here now and it is beautiful and has helped me get in the spirit of the season. So snow is a great blessing today.

Hot chocolate, bonfires and pinochle. Those are the things that are blessing my life right now. One day I will post about each and how and why but for now just know I am extremely blessed by all three today.

Windows open
breezes blowing
a/c getting a break
(bank book too)
perfect azure skies
just wisps off white sketched across the horizon
humidity down
ozone up
(but who cares?)
it is a beautiful fall day
I am off to enjoy it

Distractions. Sometimes the best blessings are simply distractions. Distractions that keep you from thinking about the what ifs? and the how will I's? While the distractions keep you busy those questions take care of themselves. Most of the time I find the distractions actually help to answer the questions and calm the fears and erase the worries that would otherwise be front and center completely paralyzing you keeping you from doing anything. So today I am thankful for distractions.

Hurricane Ike

Well I have been absent for a couple of days due to Hurricane Ike So I will do a list of blessings from the past few days...

the tree that is in front of my balcolny didn't fall into my apartment or onto my car.

the tree didn't drop any major branches at all.

the branches it did drop didn't hurt anyones car or person.

the trees behind and in front of my building didn't fall, snap off or lose any big branches onto or into anything or anyone.

the people I care about are safe and mostly their homes appear to be as well.

While the power was out for over 36 hours I now have power again.

While internet service may be a bit rough I have internet service.

I learned many things to make the next time ( please no next time) better/more comfortable

I meet my neighbors
