Beautiful view and we almost had the pool to ourselves!

During our time at the Swan & Dolphin Resorts the kids had to check out their pools.  Yes, they have several pools and a playground.  We had a blast swimming and splashing around in their pools on the hottest day.  The girls can spend hours swimming around.

This pool was much quieter, but one of their favorites because it was easier to dive for items since it was less crowded.  That’s our hotel in the back ground.

Thankful for his love and grace that covers us even though we have done nothing to deserve it.  It has been neat teaching the girls about God because they have that fascinating and amazing awe when we talk about the various events in the Bible.  Hopefully, we never lose our awe of the amazing grace of God in our lives.  Let’s never forgot the numerous ways He impacts our daily lives, extends us grace, and forgives us even though we fall short.

My faithful Father, enduring Friend
Your tender mercy’s like a river with no end
It overwhelms me, covers my sin
Each time I come into Your presence
I stand in wonder once again
Your grace still amazes me
Your love is still a mystery
Each day I fall on my knees
Your grace still amazes me
‘Cause Your grace still amazes me 
Oh, patient Saviour, You make me whole
You are the Author and the Healer of my soul
What can I give You, Lord, what can I say
I know there’s no way to repay You
Only to offer You my praise
It’s deeper, it’s wider
It’s stronger, it’s higher
It’s deeper it’s wider
It’s stronger, it’s higher than anything my eyes can see

Brina getting her fairy dust!

At the Bippity Boppity Boutique downtown Disney you can stop by and get pixie fairy dust for free.  We were at the store looking around and walking by the boutique so stopped to have the girls gets some fairy dust.  They did a cute saying as the girls got the fairy dust sprinkled into their hair.  The fairy dust is basically glitter.  I don’t know if it was a special type of glitter or if the heat from running around in the hot sun all day, but that glitter stayed on for awhile.

Last week past in a whirlwind of activity.  I have to admit I did not get all 10 blessings listed each day last week with all that was going on and the later nights with after school events, however, I was thinking about it a lot.  I am thankful for my family.  The girls have been doing well and I am proud of their hard work at school and with STEM Club.  I am looking forward to having fun with them over Spring Break!

I want to be accountable to you so the following are snip-its of some of the things I am thankful for this past week.  Counting My Blessings – Week In Review:

Monday – Thankful for a husband who pitches in and helps with the kids and around the house!

Tuesday - Thankful for kids who enjoy learning and have the courage to speak in front of a large crowd.  We attended the school’s Family STEM Night.  We participated in a lot of the special activities, enjoyed a hot dog supper at school, and the girls shared with everyone some of their feedback regarding their STEM Club experience and what they did at State Competition the week before.  Proud of all their hard work and that they earned a trophy!

Wednesday - Thankful for a thoughtful daughter who was looking out for her sister and others.  Also, grateful for extra one-on-one time with one daughter even if that meant spending time at the Orthodontists together.

Thursday - Thankful for an opportunity to go see my daughters artwork pieces that were on display at the Art Gallery at the Pickens County Museum.  They were up the entire month of March and we finally had a chance to go see them.  Grateful too that the kids are now out of school for Spring Break and for the extra time we get to spend together starting tonight!

Friday – Thankful for kids who help around the house, a husband who willing picks up a couple groceries at the store on his way home, and a chance to spend an evening relaxing and catching up with extended family members.  So many reasons to be thankful every day!

What are you thankful for today?  I encourage you to take the time to write down a few blessings that you have in your life today.  It will help cheer you up and turn your focus on the amazing blessings you encounter each day!
