365 Blessed – 224 – 22nd January


Today I feel blessed by a slow morning at home.

I feel blessed by a safe journey to Wellington to enjoy a long weekend here.

I feel blessed to have such confident and keen travelling companions in the children.

365 Blessed – 223 – 21st January


Today I feel blessed that Eva’s temperature and cough upon waking didn’t develop into anything more sinister but sadly meant the cancellation of a much looked forward to playdate.

I feel blessed by doing a thorough tidy and clean of the house and feeling like it has returned to normal after our time away.

I feel blessed by the warm weather that means lots of time outside to feel refreshed.

I feel blessed by another successful meal with new recipe tonight.

I feel blessed by a large haul of inspiring and informative books from the library all for free.

365 Blessed – 222 – 20th January

Today I feel blessed to have created a delicious dinner that Andrew and I enjoyed and the children at least tasted!

I feel blessed by two fresh and clean children’s bedrooms which resulted in a couple of bags dropped off to the op shop and a couple of bags rehomed to a friend.  Yay for decluttering!

I feel blessed that Hugo’s prayer before tea tonight included “Thank you God for the box that Mummy brought home”.  It was worth carrying the rather large mower box home from the shop at the end of the street after my morning walk.

Today I felt blessed by a return to our church after a long break.  So good to be back with fabulous music and inspiring words.

Today we were blessed to see and hear Andrew enjoy a bungy jump from the Auckland Harbour Bridge.


I was blessed to watch a family project to prepare and oil a new desk for our home.
