Blessed on Tuesday

Good Afternoon Everyone!

I just wanted to share some of my joy, happiness and blessedness with you on this beautiful Tuesday afternoon.

Now, I'm not feeling very well...actually, I'm feeling very weird right now. I feel completely exhausted, my heart has been skipping a beat since early this morning, I feel like a have a boulder on my chest and my heart is beating in my ears! So, you are probably wondering right now if....I've lost my mind too. "No, not at all".

We had a very busy week and weekend...we went out of town with some friends to the water park and lake. We had a great time playing and visiting with each other. However, it was 100+ and the humidity was terrible. Needless to say...I'm sunburned and exhausted.

I got up this morning feeling like I couldn't put one foot in front of the other. As the day grew on...the other symptoms grew increasingly worse. It was beginning to scare me. I texted my dear friend to ask her to pray for me. She asked a couple of questions and then told me to drink some orange juice. I told her that I didn't have any. She immediately asked if I was at home and when I told her..."yes"...she said she was on here way with some.

It might now sound like much to you...but that blessed me more than words can describe. She had to come out of her way to bring me some orange juice and some bananas. Why? Because she cares about me, she loves me and she wanted to help me. It was her "diagnosis" that my potassium might be low after the hot and sweaty weekend I had. I drank the oj and ate the banana...I began to feel much better. I know that I will be 100% tomorrow after a good nights sleep and the treatment plan of my dear friend:)

We sometimes take foregranted the love of a good friend. I know that I do. So, on this blessed Tuesday...I am thankful for the following things...not nearly everything that I am thankful for but just to name a few:

A Heavenly Father who loves me and watches over me
A Wonderful husband
Precious children
Great Godly friends...both here and far away
My prayer buddies...you know who you are:)
My health
Sunshine...even when it is 100+
My freedom in the USA
My job and my husband's job

I could go on and on and on...but I won't. I want to scream to the world that we are blessed people...thank someone today that you appreciate, that you love, that you might have forgotten how they have blessed you and tell someone that you love them today. We are blessed!!!

Go and enjoy your blessings today!
