Listing 5 things happens to be so good for me. When you are the caretaker for someone with dementia, its sometimes hard to see the things you are loving... this disease is so crazy! I am literally every day coming in on a wing and a prayer. Not only is there the stress of caring for a loved one like this, but the grief also. Those moments when you have to teach your very intelligent mother how to eat pizza... grief...
But, I do find those moments when I love something, and I am more keenly aware I think not only to the goodness , but where my goodness comes from!
When I am multitasking it is so good to have the Bible " read" to me. I can stop and pause,resume... its great to be able to stay on task with my Bible reading.
My fairy garden.. Jamie , Emily and Jacob gave me a few pieces for my garden, and I ordered a few more. I like to decorate with the seasons so I added a snowman and some toadstools with hearts. I love it!
My crochet this week. 2 hats and a " lovey" for the newest grand due in May. I am so thankful for this stress breaker. My hook is the first thing I grab in the evenings after I get Mom settled in.
...and this mug my friend Angie bought me for Christmas. It goes everywhere with me. I wish I could say I kept water in it always... but ahem... you know me and sweet tea!
A 2 hour lunch with my MIL today, at my favorite place to eat... so fun!.. This picture has nothing to do with our lunch.... but I know she will laugh when she sees it!
What are you loving this week?
So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. Galatians 5:16
