Wow. I am truly humbled and thankful for each and every response that was made regarding my last post. From your tips on taking baby steps in getting my house uncluttered; to sharing your daily organizational and cleaning routines; to cheering me on..."you can do it!";to giving me website recommendations for cleaning and organizing (flylady.net and organizedhome.com); to recommended book reading (One Thousand Gifts); to understanding my physical and emotional obstacles; to your willingness to be reach out when I need someone to talk to or lean on; and to, most importantly, your thoughts and prayers! It is true that some of the sweetest friendships have come about through blogging and I am finding that out firsthand. I am touched deeply by those of you who are wanting to reach out and become a true friend. I am blessed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My middle daughter called me unexpectedly at the end of last week and wanted to bring her two boys over to help me with any kind of cleaning project. Who can resist an offer like that? I was caught off guard but I thought a good place to start would be my laundry room. It had become quite the junk room having anything and everything thrown in there, in a jumble and quite the mess. So everything was brought in to the living room. I mean EVERY thing!! We had a trash sack....or two. Empty boxes were brought from the attic: boxes for organizing the things that I wanted to keep and boxes for items to be taken to Goodwill. And this what we ended up with...
These were my unexpected blessings from this last week. Now, I may not have got much cleaning and uncluttering done over the last several months, but I have been busy working on some sewing projects and I want to show you what I've been doing.
Three projects. One common theme. For one very little person. The last one isn't quite done yet but I've got to hurry! Several months ago, I announced that my youngest daughter is expecting her thrid child and the time is now here. She is going into the hospital tomorrow to have him brought into the world....our grandbaby #6!! And big sister and brother will be staying with us for the next couple of days. What a blessed time!! I ask that you especially pray for my daughter and for the new grandson tomorrow. And for the medical group who will help bring him into the world. Once I get some pictures, I'll share with you our new little bundle of joy. And, of course, I'll also share with you the completed projects that are made for him.
I have much to be thankful for in the unexpected AND expected blessings that He is bestowing upon me. God is so good. I pray your day, and weekend, are filled with unexpected blessings. Those that come when we least expect it or when we think we least deserve it. They are the best, don't you think?
