“I have set before you life and death…blessings and curses…choose life, so that you and your children may live.” Deuteronomy 3:19 (NIV)
I believe that even on the worst of days, there are blessings all around us, if we look for them. So, I’ve decided to capture some of the Everyday Blessings I encounter, and record them, to remind me of all the good stuff that happens on a day-to-day basis. Here’s a just a couple of the “blessings” I witnessed today.
- Went to a breakfast buffet, and the owner of the restaurant gave us one of his famous “Giant Cinnamon Rolls”. He wasn’t kidding. The roll was as big as my face, and weighed over 12 oz. I verified it by setting it on a scale. That’s one honking roll, my friend. Now here’s to hoping I somehow keep from gaining any weight having eaten 1/2 of the aforementioned behemoth of a roll!
- Saw a homeless man sitting on side of road, with his dog on his lap–both were asleep. Even in these dire circumstances, these two seemed peaceful, because they had each other to lean on. Pets are the best companions–they really are man’s(and woman’s) best friend. Reminded me how fortunate I am to have my furry angel, Rosy.
Remember, the best blessings are those we confer upon others. Now, go out and be a blessing.

Hey there, I found you via the NaBloPoMo blogroll.
My chickens constantly remind me that they are blessings – they are not here for a long time, but they deliberately and consciously enjoy each and every moment. My favourite of their moments is dust-bathing – this is hilarious to watch but they are having the best time ever, throwing dirt on themselves. Their favourite moment would probably be when I give them treats. 😉
They remind me of that Walt Whitman quote about sucking the marrow out of life.
As part of NaBloPoMo I try to comment on as many participating blogs as I can, and I also add participating blogs to my feed reader.
So I’m just dropping by to let you know I’ve added your blog to my feedreader, I’m reading you loud and clear, I have a link up going at my place so my readers can find participating blogs which you are more than welcome to add your blog link to.
Looking forward to seeing your posts, and you’ll likely see me drop by again during November.
Happy NaBloPoMo to you!
Excellent. I never heard of chicken-dusting. By the way, I could use some help around the house, if they’re free.
