the long lost hat :)

**title that is catchy, and makes you want to read this post**

This is the worst time of month. I dread it. It's not like I get sick after going to the hospital but I do have some really bad memories of Children's hospital. Whenever I walk in there I get this sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. Let me just say that I'm glad I only have to go once a month. I'll be going there tomorrow. I went back on the chemo a week ago on half-dosage. 

28. God's Word - the Bible. 
29. The flowers blooming in the garden.
30. Mom.
31. Grandma.
32. Jonathan.
33. The smell of the early morning air.
34. Crisp, juicy, apples.
35. Having 2 ladies at different times in the same store tell me that they really like my hair.
36. Lots of laughter with my sisters.
37. A girls weekend away to Osoyoos.
38. All 3 of my married siblings expecting at the same time. :)
39. Seeing two brown bears on the way home from Osoyoos.
40. Playing cribbage with Jennifer.
41. Walking with Rachel.
42. Trying to talk in one-syllable words. 
43. Seeing a snake in the garden.
44. Finding a hat that I forgot I had and loving it all over again.

Count your blessings. They often come in disguises.

Rachel and me

My hair is just a little bit longer than this. :)

summer, sun, and science :)

I had a wonderful time in Seattle. It was fun. It made me want to go away and have fun more often. :D I started piano lessons up again a few weeks ago. My hands and fingers feel so out of shape because I haven't practiced for quite a while. But it feels good to be playing and practicing again. It makes me happy.

8. gorgeous sunsets.
9. warm weather.
10. hot soothing tea.
11. doing well on my science test. 
12. having a lady at the store tell me that she liked my haircut.
13. healthy days.
14. fun weekends away.
15. good times with family and friends.
16. Rachel and Ethan.
17. the green grass.
18. having blood start squirting everywhere after getting my blood work done. :)
19. boring books.
20. the piano. 
21. rain, rain, and more rain.
22. birds chirping outside.
23. sun.
24. the newborn calf.
25. church.
26. fellowship.
27. because of low blood counts I haven't needed to be on my medication/chemo for the past 2 weeks and won't need to be on it for another week . Yay! :)

I started a notebook of my blessings. Every time I think of a new one I jot it down. That way I don't have to think of them on the spot when I write a new post. Join me in counting your blessings. They often come in disguises.
