Blessings this Week: 11.11.2016 and 11.18.2016

As I take the time to reflect over the past two weeks, only one word comes to mind. Overwhelming.

Just... overwhelming.

And it's not terribly surprising, given what's been going on these days- new jobs, new home, settling in, flying to Chicago, saying hello and hugging goodbye, building and changing and growing.

But even more than all that, amidst all this hard stuff, I'm overwhelmed by the blessings. God is so good.

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

Settling in- a cheery little curtain in our new kitchen to make it feel just a bit more like home

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

Long morning walks to views like these, and my perky ol' companion who's always ready to explore

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

Bits of home that came along to Colorado, like this plant from my desk at camp

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

I don't think I can fully process all of the grace of my weekend in Chicago. Instead of trying to use words, I'll just leave these pictures here, and think of the many more pictures that are burned forever on my soul, and I'll treasure the moments in my heart.

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

New friendships that come about right when they're truly needed

People- all the people- who pick up my slack when I can't be around or am too busy being overwhelmed

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

This guy, and the gift of an animal companion who makes me smile

Finishing his dog house for the winter- the creativity of my husband and his willingness to do things right the first time- and how Bear took to it right away and didn't want to get out, even as we continued construction

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

My first snow of the season

Count your blessings this week- the people around you, the things that make you smile, the moments that you'll treasure forever.
