I'm 'LEAP' ing for joy!

Well, it is leap day and I hope it is a good day for you.

I try to find God's blessings in every day. In fact, I live for every 15 minutes. I know if I can make it 15 minutes, I can make it another and on and on. I know that sounds silly to some but when you have a limited short-term memory, every 15 minutes counts.

Yesterday we came home from school and look what was left at our back door.

A wonderful aged and weathered cotton gathering basket. No, the girl didn't come with it but she is the greater prize, our wonderful, full of life granddaughter. She is in there to show you the ample size of the basket.

An older couple of friends just left this basket at the door. Someone had given it to them years ago and it was just 'in their way' in their tiny storage building. In fact, they said, "Do you want that old thing?' when hubby called to thank them. (They had told us they had a basket they thought we might like.)

God's blessings abound for me. Part of Hubby's test results came back clear of Cancer, I am grateful that we can pay our bills even when it seems impossible sometimes, our Father just seems to care for us in a special way. He always has and always will!

Just wanted to share my joy with you today.
