I took this photo of the morning glories this weekend. You may recall that in the spring I worried and fretted over them because the plants kept sprouting and something kept eating them. I replanted three times. I thought I would surely go through the summer without morning glories. But as ususal God blessed me with abundance. These aren't even the morning glories I planted!! They are on the other side of the garden. This is simply a stray that sprouted with the watermelons and I decided to leave it.
Another blessing arrived in yesterday's mail. Some kind soul sent my little class $20 and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Not only am I touched that you would send the money, but honored that you would trust me to spend it on my little ones. They are getting paints and brushes for the art center. Our supply of both was very low and this class LOVES to paint.
Perhaps my greatest blessing yesterday was that I fell...and didn't break anything. That is very unusual for me! LOL I was putting a child's birthday on our board, turned around, and took a step, only to discover that one of my boys had decided to sit right behind me to read a book. I fell over and to the side of him, thankfully on the carpeted portion of the floor. Neither of us was hurt. Little guy apologized immediately and we went about our business. I'm not one for dramatics. :)
This morning I'm feeling especially blessed because I slept from midnight until 5am, something I have not done in months. I've been suffering with leg pain and cramps that usually wake me up at least a half a dozen times each morning. I've been taking the pain medication my doctor suggested, but always wake up at midnight when it wears off. My son finally said, "why don't you switch to some kind of time-released medication for night time?" Duh! I've been taking an 8-hour time release pain medication for two nights now and have slept like a baby!! Yeah!! You can teach an old dog new tricks. And I'm going to tell my doctor that my son was smarter than both of us.
I also forgot to set the alarm last night, but woke up at 5am on the dot anyway. So...I'm counting my blessings today. I hope you will take the time to do the same.
