I’m a little late in the game this week, not exactly Thursday, but I am nevertheless thankful. In real life and blog life, some could call it a bleak week. However, I am choosing to look past the stomach virus and zero view days to focus on the joy of the morning 🙂
So, despite a nasty bug keeping us down, I am very thankful for the timing of it all. I did miss a shift a work on Saturday, but my handsome hubby survived just in time to DJ for the wedding of a family friend (THANKFULLY he kept his distance and only shared his sound skills.) I am incredibly thankful that our Eager Explorer was spared despite everyone else getting one version of the bug fun one way or another. Now I’m curious if it has anything to do with antibodies in my breast milk? Hmm, now that’s an idea for some interesting research. Either way, it is totally by God’s amazing grace and I am absolutely full of humble gratitude for His mercy. We also had a great visit with the grandparents and family, major progress in the homeschool department with Lil’ Lizard and Eager Explorer has tripled in personality overnight!
Real life has me blessed and busy enough that I rarely look at my blog stats. For one, I write from my heart to grow in the Lord as a person and hopefully encourage others do the same and secondly, they are usually pretty slim pickin’s anyways. I don’t know what was so different, but my last post pulled in the highest number of views and visitors to date! So I’m uber thankful for that and figure now is a good time to announce a giveaway I’ll be starting June 1st.
This is why I’m so thankful for God’s blessing through the folks at Seed’s Family Worship. Since I’m so new to blogging, I reached out to them a while back about some of my ideas and questions and they responded with nothing but kindness and enthusiasm. I had asked if it was acceptable to do a review of one of their products I purchased and if down the road, I would be permitted to give away one of the extras I have that comes with it. Despite my small, (YET AWESOME) following, they offered to donate the Seeds Family Worship Courage DVD for my giveaway! It’s the exact same one I was going to review and offer myself, so I’m really excited 🙂 Playing around with and learning how to do a giveaway will be so fun, not to mention my first review…..but I really appreciate the opportunity to share such an awesome gift with y’all. I’ll go into detail later, but long story short, their worship music has really helped Lil’ Lizard not only memorize great scripture verses, but combat his bed time fears. For that I am eternally grateful.
I’ll go ahead and embed the giveaway here as test run, though it doesn’t officially start until June 1st.
