Giving Thanks!

This has been a long morning already! I have been up since, well, way before when I am usually up. I have been trying to do this in an attempt to better serve my family. It helps me get a jump start on things eventhough I really am NOT a morning person. It works though because I am the only one up so by the time they get up the grouchiness is minimal. I did get much accomplished before the children rose and I am babysitting my almost three year old nephew. Three little boys and the house is a whirlwind! We just came in from outside for a snack and a little TV time while I try to figure out lunch.

SO....I don't really do commercial like posts, but today I have to say I am so very grateful for my special reserve of Green Mountain, Wild Mountain Blueberry Coffee! It is one of God's greatest gifts to mankind. I am certain he had me specifically in mind when he gave someone the genius idea for this! If you have not tried it, you are so missing out! It is a fair trade coffee. Green Mountain is what we always have at our house, but I reserve the Blueberry when I need a special pick me up and it did the trick today!

Thank you God today for my little cup of Heaven right here on Earth!

PS...More details on the Bible Study is going to be a weekday morning thing I think, either at my house or my church depending on the number interested, so if anyone has a day preference email me.

PPS Have I mentioned that I tried my hand at PICKLING! I made 36 pints of pickles with Ben the other night! I am so proud of myself. I will share more on that later too...I am being beckoned by three screaming preschoolers doing laps around my kitchen island so I better go, (perhaps fruit by the foot wasn't the best snack?)! I need to get some more Wild Mountain Blueberry sanity and we will chat later! Please pray for me! :-)

Congrats at the pickling! It's fun! :) I LOVE the new look of the blog!

Melanie said...

Like the new look! I am not a coffee drinker, but I might be tempted to start with something as wonderful sounding as that!

Somedays it's all about finding joy in the little things!

I miss those days when my older three girls where that young.

Love the new blog!

Kristy-Love the new blog are simply beautiful inside and out!

Here, here to early morning risings...I am actually more grouchy when the kids get up before me...I feel like I play catch up all day. And as for coffee..right there with you...a gift from God. Love my morning coffee and sometimes, afternoon coffee. As for the blueberry...I'll take your word for that one.

I am so honored to be listed on your sidebar. Thank you so much. I am so thankful for and blessed by the Godly group of women that God has introduced me to in the blogging world. I look forward to knowing you even better.

As for go girl!! I grew up canning, pickling and making jam with my mother and have very fond memories of those times together...although it was exhausting!

In Christ's love-Stacy

I really like the redecorating you have done! I am glad to hear that you are trying new things. Last fall I made applesauce that turned out great but my no-fail frezer jam was not as great. It is prefect over ice cream and short cake though. Have to find the positive. Amy K. Fairview, PA

Taking a little potty break from the home schooling. :) I can't say blueberry + coffee makes any sense in my mind, but I'll take your word for it. :) Oh! And how neat that our blogs are [fraternal] twins! Where you'd find yours?

I found your site off NILMDTS. I'm a contributor...I'm a nurse.. Hospice nurse at that... and I read your story... I'm so sorry you went through this..

I'm so glad your faith remained, well grew in this journey... in honor of Issac...

You have a very beautiful family

You picked such a pretty blog page!

Sounds like a fun morning and oh boy with fruit by the foot! LOL!

Can't wait to hear more about your bible study!

Thinkig of you Kristy!

How have your early morning risings been going? I, like you, am NOT a morning person but I looove the idea of getting up early, drinking coffee, getting things done, having a quiet Bible study....but unfortunately, most of the times I just can't bring myself to do it.
I probably should just force myself to do it and see that it's worth it.
So, I hope you are continuing to have some good, peaceful time before your boys wake up.
I check in often to see how you are doing. I love the new look of your blog as well :) I continue to pray for you and your family and pray that all is going well!

my mom brought a bag of that coffee last time she was here! It was yummy, and smells like a pie baking! But, with pregnancy I am disgusted by coffee (usually drink a pot a day!). So the blueberry is waiting for me!
