There are a lot of days when I feel blessed by the Lord.

Sometimes it's as simple as seeing a beautiful sunset, being encouraged by a friend or getting a card in the mail.

Then there are other days where God's blessing is even more potent. Today is one of those days.

I have been living with what I call a "monster headache" for the past three days. I don't get them very often. But when they come, it's grueling. If you've ever had one, you know what I'm talking about.

This one has gotten worse as the days have gone much so that I'm in bed today. You probably wonder, "If she has a monster headache, what's she doing on the computer??!!"

Well...I've laid here all day thinking about how blessed I am and couldn't help but write a post about it, even though it actually hurts to look at the computer screen. So I'll keep this brief.

My family has been the hands and feet of Jesus today, thus blessing me beyond what I deserve.

Claire has cleaned, mopped, baked (the most amazing thin mint cookies...I hope she'll post the recipe on her blog soon!), shopped, and brought me food. She's at the store now buying things to make dinner.

Dave has rubbed my head, held my hand, brought me medicine, watched a movie with me and loved me well, even when he's tired after the conference.

Caleb has brought in wood, tended the fire, checked in on me, washed my car...all while he's not feeling the greatest either!

So even though my head is hurting and I can't get out of bed, I feel blessed the Lord through my family.


  1. Glad I could help. ;) So sorry you're sick, Mom! Hope you feel better soon!!

  2. Praying for you, Connie! My sister gets migraines from time to time (especially when the weather changes). I really don't know how you are supposed to "do life" when just about everything, but laying in the dark, makes them worse. I'm so glad that you have a wonderful family to help you.
