I won’t sugar coat things right now….life is hard. We are in a HARD season. I keep thinking we are going to turn a corner and then….we don’t. I don’t know how many times we’ve said out loud “when it rains, it pours” lately.
One thing that helps me each and every day is to try and find the blessings surrounding us.
This week I am grateful for our feisty daughter. She has tested me more this past week than in her entire 11 years of living. But I am so grateful for her. I have had more teaching moments with her this week and more self-reflection this week than I have had in a LONG time. To know our little girl is to love her. She is literally the best person I know. She is kind, witty, and just an overall awesome kid. I have had to remind myself each day this week that I will never get these days back with her and to make the best of every day, good or bad. Most days I feel like I am failing her as a mother, but this week, I am grateful for her and her understanding and loving heart.
I am so grateful we got our garden seeds in this week. Last year when the pandemic started, seeds weren’t the easiest to get your hands on. It’s still not easy. A lot of things have been sold out and the shipping times were taking weeks longer than usual. I have dreams of a beautiful garden this year and I am just so grateful that we got our order in the mail! See all of the fun things we are planting in this post HERE!
I wrote about this last time, but I am grateful for my body and all the things it is doing to get this baby here. This pregnancy has been HARD. But each day we show up and my body does what it needs to and I will never take that for granted.
I am thankful for the snow this week! Our area is in DESPERATE need of any type of moisture. It has been a few years without amazing rain or snow and our land desperately needs it. I live in a ranching community where people pray and fast for rain. Moisture is no joke around here!! And I am just so grateful that we got even just a little bit. And tomorrow it’s supposed to be 60 degrees! So I’ll take it!!!
Life can be hard, but blessings are abundant. What are some of yours??
