This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it! Psalm 118:24

Too often I find myself not going through my blessings, just dumping my problems and worries on God, and saying a quick thanks for all the good in my life. And there really is far more good than bad in my life and I am forever grateful for that. Today I am rejoicing in the small things.

  •  Jackson has completed a great season of flag football and we only had one crazy cold night- which was last night, and yet, grateful that we didn't have to do it on Wednesday night.

  • Hockey season is in full swing. It does my heart good to see my son out there enjoying life on the ice.

  • My hubby is home for 2 and a half days! Of course its prior to a trip overseas, but still, we'll take what we can get!

  • Laughter that flows from Facebook friends. They are nuts and I love 'em. Most of them anyways. ;)

  •  Not one lunch date this week, but TWO. That's a pretty good week in my book.

  •  Books that just make me smile.

  • Friends that will call to pray with me as I text about irrational fears and worries...despite the busy day she's in the midst of.

  •  Rain/snow/wind/clouds- I know- I'm gonna get decked. I love those days when they come around once in awhile. I cozied up by my fireplace with a quilt and a good book and a cup of coffee. aaahhh....

  • Friends that no matter how much you protest, will encourage you and compliment you until you just accept it.

  • Okay, I haven't forgotten the other child... Miss Maicy's prayers really are the greatest. Right now she's praying for her missing kitties...they are lost in the woods and she believes they'll make it back out. That my dear friends, is faith.
  • I can't believe I almost forgot this one... my camera is back! Repaired and healthy and new again!  Yeah!
How about you... what are the little blessings in your life today that just make you smile?

Alicia, great list. Oh, will your husband be gone long? Is he in the military? I like the coziness of a bad weather day, too. Blessings to you.

Enjoy those days while the hubby is home!

I know what you mean about those friends. They're golden, aren't they?

Your blog is darling!!! I found you over at Jennifer's blog (Me, My Muse and I) and just had to stop by!

I read your "Who Am I" post and when I saw that you were from Iowa I had to follow! I've lived in Houston, Texas for 3 years but grew up in Iowa (Des Moines) and my husband (Auburn) Oh how I miss the seasons!
