Good morning! Indeed it is a good morning here at our little "homestead"! Saturdays are the only sleep-in day around here, although hubby was off to do some work before 7. The kids are all outside playing.... we are experiencing a MUCH NEEDED warm front! Yesterday hit the mid 40's and today's high is expected to reach the mid 50's!!! The wood stove is getting a break during the daytime, though will warm our home over night. The snow has almost all melted and the winds are working to dry up the big puddles. It is a kind of day that reminds you that winter doesn't last forever!!!
As I type I am listening to the washing machine agitate... oh how blessed I am to have running water, a washing machine and a dishwasher!!! So much of the world's population does not have running water! Back in December when our power was out for 2 days due to an ice storm we realized just how much we take running water for granted!!!!! As Americans go through this "financial challenge" that is gripping our nation it is my prayer that we all wake up and realize how incredibly BLESSED we all are and how many things we take for granted!!!!
I said last week that I have a series on priorities coming.... I do... I just had to "live it out" before I could publish the posts! I don't want to just "talk the talk", but rather walk the walk.
Have a BLESSED day, BE a BLESSING!
