November is the time to count our many blessings – name them one by one.
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 22 – Thankful for A Date, A Deal, and A Hug
On Tuesday, I was able to spend some time alone with my husband over a delicious lunch at Ruby Tuesdays. We don’t get that one on one time very often and it was a treat to be able to meet for lunch. While I was in town, I was getting some shopping done and pricing heated blankets and mattress pads. We had decided we wanted to get these for the kids for Christmas. So far, in my shopping, I had found these to be anywhere from $60-$80+. Ugh! But then I went to Target and to my surprise, they were running a 4-Day sale on them for $25!!! I couldn’t believe it! I snagged 3 of them and spent nearly the same for 3 that would have for 1….Thanks Target! I had also decided, since I would be getting groceries, I would get all the ingredients necessary for Taco Night for supper. Bennett LOVES tacos and had been asking for them a lot, but I never had the ingredients or the time to make them up. When Bennett found out I was making tacos for supper, I got THE. BEST. HUG!
November 23 – Thankful for a Day to Sleep In
There was no school today and we didn’t have anywhere we had to be, so everyone was told to sleep as late as they wanted to. Pat got up at 5:45 to go to basketball, but for once, I didn’t even hear him get up and leave. I was able to sleep until 8:00. That was a treat. I was still behind on sleep from last weekend and I know this weekend I will be short on sleep again due to Black Friday Midnight Shopping! So, being able to sleep in today was a treat!
