It was a long week.
Last Monday, Eric’s grandmother was buried. He and 4 of our kids made the trip to the service. I wish I could have been there. I cheered thinking of her in heaven.
Caleb was very, very sick. (The next day we found out he had the flu.) He and I stayed home. He spent most of the week in the bed and on the couch. I cheered for a good doctor and medicine that helped him get better.
Monday night we watched the BCS National Championship Game. I cheered, happy to see our team win. Roll Tide!
Friday night was date night. Pizza, salad, and cheesecake at Effina’s then on to Java Jolt. I cheered for time alone with him.
Cafe au lait for me. Cafe Americano for him. I cheered for good food and good coffee.
I made 12 pans of The Pioneer Woman’s Cinnamon Rolls last week. It helped get me through.
It also helped me gain 5lbs. I cheered anyway.
It’s been a long week.
But today we went here.
We read this:
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,
It’s been a long week. But we are blessed. In Christ. With every spiritual blessing.
Today is the beginning of a new blessed week in Christ. I am cheering again.
Yay for new. Yay for blessed. Yay for Christ.
