The joy of counting blessings is the opportunity to revisit pleasant moments

  1. a reception hall table arrangement scale created in the company of the future in-laws and their son - my love, on a quiet evening after a stressful week and a particularly difficult day
  2. a family prayer circle around a sibling in need of God's direction on several major decisions
  3. hearing that in my presence a fellow sister in Christ feels accepted and free to be real
  4. cylinder vase rentals finally found at a reasonable price
  5. wedding dreams being offered their moment of fulfillment
  6. a house far beyond what I ever anticipated
  7. a story to tell
  8. the adoration of a good man
  9. a nephew's momentary attachment to my fiance
  10. sunshine warming the walk to the vehicle
  11. offers to take the deteriorating car for an exhaustive servicing
  12. family singing together to bless the church
  13. menstrual pain relieving pills
  14. a sick leave from work that frees me from the pressure of corporate life
  15. evidence of many acquaintances in the guest list that is too large
  16. new recipes
  17. spontaneous wedding refreshment selections
  18. leisurely Saturday cleaning and Sunday meal prep
  19. surprise birthday parties shared by families never found socializing together before
  20. going to sleep at night knowing I don't have to get up for work in the morning
To be continued. . .
