1000 Blessing's Friday & Friday's Feast


216. My husband's truck dumped the transmission last week which meant we were down to one car between us. We don't have the money to get it fixed but my blessing is that I have felt well enough to get up and go to work with him each morning! We don't have to be to work until 9:00 am, but sometimes I just don't move too well in the morning so it can take a little longer to get ready.

217. My mother had cataract surgery on Tuesday and I was able to take her to her appointments. She is doing very well and can already see better in that right eye. She'll have the left one done on February 12th. I am blessed in several ways. I can help her now that I can get in and out of the van and also blessed because I have such a terrific mom!

218. I am blessed with a wonderful, caring Pastor. He and his wife continue to counsel me and teach me all I need to know when dealing with my husband. I also have many things I need to work on as a christian. I am memorizing lots of scripture to reflect on when things are being said to me that are hurtful. At first I had a hard time with the memorization, but I stuck to it and I've been able to memorize many verses!

219. We've been blessed with several big orders from customers! We need money badly! Maybe we'll be able to get the truck fixed soon.

220. And what a blessing it is to go to Awana on Wednesday night! We have the sweetest little girl named Whitney that we all adore. She has fetal alchohol syndrome. She struggled with feeding herself, dressing herself, memorization, controlling temper...the list goes on. But what a change we have seen from the beginning of the year until now! We have no trouble with her in class. Ever. I think she has come to know how much we all love her and are there to help her. And she is memorizing her verses too and working so very hard! What a joy she is!


FRIDAY'S FEAST

Appetizer

What is your favorite kind of cereal?

I love cereal as much as I love popcorn! I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So it’s hard for me to pick just one. I have always loved the Cap’n, as in CrunchBerries and Peanut Butter Crunch, but I also love me a bowl of Cheerios with bananas or strawberries on top!

Soup

When was the last time you purchased something for your home, what was it, and in which room did it go?

Well, this is an exciting answer…we just bought a new water softener and put in the basement…WooHoo! Wanna feel how soft my hair is now? And it's frizzy too! I hate that water softener.

Salad

What is the funniest commercial you’ve ever seen?

I love how my man always makes it into a Friday's Feast! I love the Pepsi Twist commercial with Ozzy Osborn when his kids "become" Donny & Marie Osmond and then when Ozzy calls for Sharon it's actually Florence Henderson! Now I wouldn't say this is the funniest commercial I've ever seen, but my memory ain't that good so this wil have to do!

Main Course

Make up a name for a company by using a spice and an animal (example: Cinnamon Monkey).

Ginger Giraffe, of course!

Dessert

Fill in the blank: I haven’t ______ since ______.

I haven't been to the bathroom since last night. Maybe I need to drink something! TMI!

Love your Friday's Feast! Your appetizer reminds me of my mom, she eats cereal and popcorn all the time! Congrats on the new water softener. Like your salad. We have the same main course! Now go get a drink of water! LOL!
