Since Monday rolled around, our family has had a rough week. We feel beat up. You know, the kind of days where you say "We need to watch Facing the Giants" like every single day, numerous times in the day?
That is the kind of week we are having.
It's also been a week full of blessings from friends. One came to our rescue on a night we were dreading facing. A family said "You are coming here for dinner tonight" and fed us comfort food...pizza, muffins, cookies and brownies. (Notice the desserts, hello, comfort food in the greatest degree!) After that night, S3 came home, fell into the chair and said "This was the best day EVER" and promptly fell asleep, head in his hand thinking over his fun night. Sound. Asleep.
I wish I would have gotten a picture of that.
And all the things we've faced this week are minor, really. They just ganged up on us. We are all healthy, our families are healthy. My husband has a good job. We have good friends.
Last week my husband was trying to remember this song for me. He has an uncanny memory when it comes to music and can hear a song once and sing it. But he had a hard time remember how it went and I couldn't recall hearing it and we forgot about it.
Today he determined to find it for me.
Cuz he is awesome like that to me.
Then he called me to tell he me had found the song but he didn't want me to hear it until I heard the story behind it.
The story sorta puts everything back in the right perspective.
Here is the song Blessings (With Lyrics).
Here is the song, Blessings, in the video format I like the most.
Here is the song, Blessings (again), that has the most youtube hits.
I think you can get the idea that I want you to hear the song. ;)
So in case any of you are having a bad week...the worst week of your life or a bad day that just leaves you grumpy...here is a song for you.
And know that others out there have them too.
You are not alone.
You are blessed.
