It's the little things

It's  the little things that remind me how blessed I am.  It's easy to get bogged down with the stressors in day to day life and completely ignore the moments that make you smile. Take this week for example--LOOVED the Monday off; but I've felt like a blessed headless chicken the rest of the week cramming five days worth of work in four. Yesterday was also a very emotional day for me. The kind of day where the Lord reminds you He's in control and the only way you'll survive is to rely and trust in Him.

Plans to help and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

 I'm going to join Lindsay and document my "small things"each Friday.  It will be a way to reflect on  little blessings and help refocus my thoughts heading into the weekend.
