November is the time to count our many blessings - name them one by one.
Last year I had a blessing for each day of November and kept track of them here. I want to do it again, but I realize I may not get to post everyday, so keeping a list might be more doable for me this year. I want to look at each day and name at least one blessing from that day. Something that happened or affected me on that day and not just in general. It can be so easy to igore those little blessings in our day, but sometimes it is the little blessings that can make the biggest impact.
November 4 - A Day at Home
Today I had a whole day at home. As soon as the kids were off to school I watched my dvr'd SURVIVOR from Wednesday while chatting with my cousin, Melanie. It is our usual routine during SURVIVOR on Wednesdays, but I wasn't home and couldn't watch until this morning. She sacrificed and watched it again with me. After that I got busy on my To Do list and was able to knock some stuff off the list. Then I plopped myself back in front of the TV to watch GLEE Season 2. I got through episodes 1 and 2 this afternoon.
Tonight while the boys and Pat were at basketball practice, I whipped up a batch of Pat's Chicken Noodle Soup! Mmmmmmm, it smells so good right now. I've never made it before, since it is HIS soup, so I hope I did it right! :) While I was chopping and stirring I was listening to my JOURNEY station on Pandora and one of my favorite songs from high school came on....EYE OF THE TIGER by Survivor! You know that I was singing along and even, yes, even stopping to do some of the dance routine that I could remember from when we (the cheerleaders) performed it in high school. Oh, it brought back memories and does everytime I hear that song!
The sun is shining and I have a feeling there is going to be a glorious sunset tonight. Life is great and I am so thankful!
