July's Joy Dare week 3

Life quickly becomes busy and full and it’s easy to pass by and
 not really noticing the little things to be thankful for. 
My life isn't perfect by any stretch.......
but it does have perfect moments for
which I am truly thankful to God for:

Day 10
(3 gifts in weakness)
feeling really full of flu today and weak but that means....
717) a gift of rest without feeling guilty
718) a gift of keeping warm indoors, bundled up against the cold winter weather
719) a gift of help with things that needed doing around the house... 
my sweet tween son picking up the slack as his brother and sister were out

Day 11
( a gift in a jar)
720) chocolate spread for the kids from their Oma...a real treat
721) lifts for the kids again when hubby had the car for the day
