Hidden Treasures

Life is busy these days.  Just keeping to the basics has been a challenge.  The baby had yet another cold this past week (or maybe she was teething?) and there were many sleep-less nights.  Through a difficult grouchy week, I still managed to smile plenty along the way and be thankful for my many treasures hidden along the way:

  • The mini Bakugon hidden in a little pair of muddy blue jeans.
  • And then the itty bitty Playmobil puppy dog remaining behind in the washer. (Yes, he is still so small!)
  • Winning the Seasons of Joy Spring e-book!  What a great and wonderful resource!!
  • A small, lone daffodil in the midst of where the children and dog stomp and play (it was picked by a little 3yo shortly after it’s discovery.)
  • Breakfast in bed!
  • Day out with Daddy – oh how I missed them!
  • Whistling – Jackson just learned how!
  • A chipmunk!  Nova didn’t get them all!
  • Painted little toenails.
  • A bookshelf at Goodwill’s 50% off day.
  • Knitting a doll sweater in less than a week.
  • Coffee, even if it is decaf!
  • Dancing the baby to sleep in the dark kitchen (because it’s the only place where I won’t step on a toy.)
  • Hanging sweet little baby clothes to dry on the clothesline.
  • Hulu.
  • Calvin and Hobbes comic book also found at Goodwill by a very excited little guy.
  • Finding the missing pink sock while they still fit her!
  • An unexpected visit from a friend.
  • Composte that we didn’t think was working all winter, but was.

What have your hidden treasures been this week?

    Being reminded to count my blessings, counting you as one. ❤
