Multitudes on Monday - November 21, 2011

We've been traveling a lot lately and have also had commitments at other places, so we've been on the go a lot - more than I like to be.  It's all good stuff, but knowing that the holidays are just around the corner adds to the to-do list and the stress level automatically, you know? 

Wonderfully, however, Sunday always comes, and this week we had nothing scheduled except our usual day of rest.  We also had a fancy date thrown in there, a crafty afternoon with the kids, and the realization that we're less than a week away from the purchasing of the new microwave - yippee!

So here are a few of the blessings we've received this week:  

- A son who often rejects sweets in favor of veggies - and at lunchtime this day turned down the chocolate-y yogurt for the strawberry variety.

- A cooking project with the kids (more about this on December 7th, when the next Crazy Cooking Challenge is revealed!).

- Small hands, strong, determined to learn new skills, wanting to be helpful.  Someday to be a man's hands!

- A rare nap, sweet sleep after a hard morning of play.

- Dinner out at a restaurant I've been wanting to try, using a Groupon to put it within our price range.  I love those deals that make it possible to experience new things.

- A recent rainy day, in late afternoon, changed into a blue-skied one after the clouds blew away.

- That same day, the view from the front of our house.  Isn't it beautiful?

- Finding my Little Man engrossed in his Bible storybook after finishing breakfast one morning.

What blessings have come your way this week?
