blessings

I have moments when I’m feeling sorry for myself.  Like when I’m so tired because Taylor woke up twice in the middle of the night throwing up, requiring sheet changes and baths.  Or when Caleb has a fever of 103 for no apparent reason.  Or when the medical bills keep pouring in.  Or when I want to hang out with friends, but all my bests live far away.   Or when I have a  stomach bug (on top of sore post-surgery abs)  Or when I have a cold and/allergies (on top of sore post-surgery abs).  Or when Russ is gone all of the time “working”.  Or when only 10 youth show up for youth group (which is ridiculous because four years ago, I would have been thrilled to get as many as 10).  Or when I have to take Caleb to daycare for the first time and miss him (and pay double for daycare…on top of the medical bills).

But last week, when I was having one of those moments, a former youth of mine posted this song on her facebook page, and it made me check myself.  And my mind started racing and my heart started overflowing.

And also I had to procrastinate a little as well because I’m preaching this Sunday.

Here’s to counting your blessings and procrastinating!

I definitely have a new video making obsession…I am inspired by my good friends who live too far away, Rachel and LeighAnn….I just wish I could make videos as good as them.

    • We totally need to do a beach week video, and by we, I mean you or Rachel. That would be awesome and I would watch it at least twice a day. I’m SO ready for beach week in KY!
