Seven Sunday Blessings

Another week full of blessings...

This week, I am thankful for:

1.  Connor.  He has been such a big help since Gary's been ill - doing the heavy lifting, helping with dinner and tidying up, reaching items on the top shelf (yes, he's only 12... as if I didn't have issues with my height already).  So blessed to have a kind, thoughtful kid...

2.  Aili.  Her infectious laugh brightened my spirits this week, when things were beginning to overwhelm me.  Although she challenges me in some things and can drive her brother mad, she certainly brings joy and love to our home.

3.  Fellow employees.  Their hugs, concerned inquiries and even offers to prepare frozen meals have brought tears to my eyes more than once this week.  

4.  Swim camp.  For making me get up at 6am every morning this week, to drive Connor into town.  No, really.  Thank you.  I got more done from 7:40am to 11:15am each day than I do during a normal workday.  Twenty-one days to make a habit - can should I continue the trend?!?

5.  Value Village.  Found the perfect frame (exactly like this one, but in this colour) for my studio - now to check out Pinterest for some ideas... ribbon board?  cork board?  chalkboard?  Oh, the possibilities!

6.  The Olympics.  For re-fueling Connor's drive to push himself in his sport.  For re-kindling Canadians' patriotism across this great land.  For incredible pyrotechnics, choreography, music (Mike Oldfield and the whole "Frankie & June say 'Thanks, Tim'" section) and Mr. Bean in the opening ceremonies.  For Ryan Lochte in a swimsuit...  Oops - outside voice!

7.  Ice cream.  It really does make everything better - especially peanut butter chocolate ice cream.

What are YOU thankful for this week?

P.S.  Go, Canada!  And congratulations to Ryan....  :)


  1. A lovely list of blessings Sue - our children do come into their own at difficult times.
    Pleased you liked the opening ceremony...:)
    Best wishes to Gary...hope he's improving day by day.
    Hugs xx
    p.s. I'm only 5ft tall and my boy is over 6ft so I totally empathise!

  2. I am thankful for family and friends and for scrappy blogs like yours that make me remember to be grateful. Wishing you a peaceful week, my friend.
