After the wonderful weekend, celebrating my sibling’s 50th birthday, I have returned home with a chest cold.  I am not very happy about it either, but I am fortunate that my schedule has allowed me to sleep a lot this week; without having to change anything on my calendar.  I was supposed to officiate a Varsity High School soccer game this evening, but it has been moved to Saturday afternoon.  I could have officiated tonight, but a day and half of rest is even better.

So today I am grateful for the little blessing that the Lord leaves for me. I do my best to acknowledge and thank the Lord whenever a blessing comes my way. Waking up to a new day is a blessing!
