A Sip of Sweet Milk…


Cereal has been our choice for breakfast lately…
Bobby likes plain cereals… Corn Flakes every time would be OK with him…
He does add a half of banana or a few frozen blueberries…
I on the other hand have to admit… to liking sweet cereals …
Frosted Flakes…
Lucky Charms…
Honey Nut Cheerios…
even Captain Crunch at times…

My Jill (cat)… likes my choices too…

She sits beside me and waits for her bite of Sweet Milk…
One bite…sipping slowly and licking her whiskers afterwards…
and then she is through!…
I think we learn from animals sometimes…
I think we all need a sip of sweetness sometimes…
I call them those little blessings that just seem to appear…

a card from a friend…
peaches and grapes from a neighbor…
candy and sweet basil from another neighbor…
a hug and a kiss from your husband while walking through the house doing chores…

My kitty even gives me hugs and wet kisses at times as she climbs upon me to be held…
I am very in tune with these sweet sips lately…
I hope you will notice when they happen too!

Blessings Come in Many Ways…

Blessings come in many ways… and in many shapes…
People…
Presents…
Words…
and of course “GOD”…
Since my Bobby has been diagnosed with Terminal Cancer…
Our Blessings have been flowing around us…
“Overflowing”… actually…
I feel God knows I will have an exceptionally hard time when he is taken…
so I have been surrounded with the most caring… loving group of people…
To name each one would be impossible…
I share this in that I hope they will know by my words… and actions…
how grateful my heart is…
Blessings came in comforting words as I cried on some’s shoulders…
Blessings came in the form of cookies…
a sweetness that was devoured…
with the love that they were sent…
Blessings came with visits…
at just the right moments… just out of the blue…
Blessings came in acts of actual work… helping us when unable to go that day…
Blessings came from notes…
like a stone with sweet words of HOPE written on it…
Blessings of hugs… and sweet faces… that make you smile…
Blessings of phone calls… some daily… some with just the words…”how ya doing?”…
Blessings of chats… sitting and just letting each other’s words flow…
Blessings of a lunch… pizza… donuts… jam… something sweet…
Blessings of gifts… Thoughtful and memorable…
Blessings of laughter among tears…
and just laughter of things we do that is silly…
Blessings of friendships that have lasted for decades… that even as we are older… we still have a bond…
Blessings from a pet that feels my heartaches and purrs me to calmness… with her tiny rough kisses on my cheek…
Blessings of little faces that come for treats and a “Thank You” on their lips…
If God has shown me anything through this trial…
It is that HE never forsakes us…
He leads others to bid HIS LOVE in so many ways…
Thank you Jesus!

Spreading Gratefuls…

My gratefuls have been many this month… but, then… I am grateful every day!…

Gratefuls are actually Blessings from God…
