The Little Blessings Are Well With My Soul

Today is such a beautifully sunny day. With temps in the mid 70's, all the windows are open and a light and gentle breeze is filling each room. :)

I want to thank each of you, who left encouraging comments on my last post. I have been feeling much better, and am pretty much out of that "funk" of feeling sorry for myself. GOD has been working in my heart, and I genuinely feel grateful for this quiet chapter of life.

Can I share some of the little blessings it has held the past few weeks?  Like...

 New muffin recipes and coffee to drink with said peanut butter banana chia seed muffins.
A new vanity plate on the Jeep, that makes me feel all big and bad... ;D
Days of driving in my Jeep with the top back, breeze blowing through my hair (extra biggg... happy dance for that fact), and enjoying a fresh manicure.
A visit with my old friend, Annabelle, my parents Jersey cow who I milked for 4 years.
And Chantal. One of two chickens I own, who live on my parents farm.

I had my first post chemo hair cut! And I am very seriously thinking of keeping this style, because I just love it!
I participated in a parcel swap hosted by Ashely at "Precious Moments". And adored each gift from Mrs. Barabara.
My Valentine's gift was another blessing found in the mail! A "Life Is Better With Chickens" tee.
And I attempted a photo shoot with the girls. (more of that on a later day)

And yesterday, my husband and I celebrated what might be considered our first courtship anniversary. Although it was 4 years ago. Anniversaries on Leap years are a bit confusing. :D

Yes, GOD is good, all the time. And all is well, with my soul. :)

What are some of the little blessing of your past week? Or have there been big ones?

Have a wonderfully blessed day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Annabelle!!!! I still have her somewhere in the back of my mind every time I come to your blog, only I didn't realize it until just now - Annabelle and sunflowers!! I'm so glad she's still around! She looks beautiful! :-)

    And YOU look beautiful with your new haircut!! You look so chic and stylish - and healthy!! Your skin, your hair, your smile - I can see how much life is radiating out of you and I'm so excited to see it! I thank God for His loving, sustaining grace and mercy every time I think of you, and my rejoicing only increases as I see you getting stronger. May He strew your path with beautiful blessings today and every day!

    Love to you, dear sister!

    1. It's been too long since I shared some of Annabelle and her amazingness! She has been retired as a milk giver. She's now just the family pet. :)And thank you dear friend! I feel so healthy! Another blessing I forgot to share is that I am back at 100 percent in my weight lifting! :D May you have blessing filled day. :)

  2. Wow! What blessings you have experienced lately. I'm glad you are all well. Annabelle is so cute. I would love to have a cow, though I would name mine Bessie or Betsy. :)

    Much love to you,

    1. Awww... Those would be amazing names for a cow! :D Thank-you for dropping by! :)

  3. The short hair is SO you:) I personally think almost everyone looks good with short hair, but I may be a little biased!

    Your chicken tee is so cute! My husband and I are planning to get some hens this spring, and I feel like I now need that shirt!


    1. Thanks Cristina! I never thought I would say it, but I think so too. :D When I got it trimmed I told my hair dresser (who Ive gone to since I was 18) how much I love it being short,she said I always told you short hair would be for you. :D

      The tee is from Ruby's Rubbish on Etsy, if you do decide to get one yourself. :)


Well hello there! Thanks for stopping by! I LOVE to hear from you all out there. Just please remember to keep everything kind and Christ-like. In the words of that wise papa rabbit, "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all". :)
