When Lindsay over at “From the Aisle to Aloha” asked if there would be an interest in a link up of those little things that made our weeks brighter and better, I was ready for the responses to flood in positively, and they did! She was one of the first blogs I began following way back when and have followed her ever since. She is an amazing artist and a woman of great Faith. I often find myself looking at her blog just dreaming of working on my photography to get it half as good as hers! I am so excited to find talented bloggers through this link up, and little things we find to be great blessings that I never stop to think about!
Since the announcement that there would be a link up, I have slowed down life a little. I have thought about the things I have that so many don’t. The freedom to have healthy food whenever I want it; The opportunity to go out to eat on a whim with my amazing husband; the ability to have him buy me a bracelet “just because”. Big things, and little things that we are blessed enough to experience and little things that make me smile.
If you are stopping by from the link up, hello and welcome! (You’ll know me as Elizabeth @ The Young Retiree!)
I often take for granted the delicious food God gives me. I am able to have a healthy and delicious lunch everyday. We may not always get to eat what we want, when we want it- but we never go without food, we never go to bed hungry, I’ve never had to stand in line at a soup kitchen or a food pantry and we have nutritious food at our fingertips.
Sometimes we do go out on a whim and we are fortunate enough to enjoy lunch together:
When we were out over the weekend we were lucky enough to find a pretty awesome gourmet cupcake place close to us. This made us smile from ear to ear!
I haven’t just taken note of the yummy in my week. I have also taken note of the friends in my life. As a military spouse it can be difficult to find new friends upon moving. As a Navy wife living at a Marine Corps base, it seemed like I would never make the leap into the Marine Spouse community. I have been blessed to find an awesome group of millies to hang out with and have girls nights with!
Perhaps the funniest thing to happen this week, was waking up to find a white rabbit in our backyard. We recently made friends with our next door neighbor by their little dog climbing under the fence to play with our pups. They have a rabbit who learned the trick as well and we got to bunny sit for the day while they were gone. It was an experience I don’t think we’ll soon forget! Friendship between she and I came from a tiny chihuahua and a little white bunny!
God is good, all the time. I’m looking forward to slowing down and enjoying the little things through the week. The things that make me smile, the blessings God has bestowed on me, and the signs of love in my life.
What are the little things in your life this week? Head on over to Lindsay at From The Aisle To Aloha to see what little things are touching the lives of others.
