Hi everyone! To go celebrate the gorgeous weather, we are expecting a high of 15*C (59*F) today, I am putting up a springy kind of button. Even though snow is forecast for Sunday it is going to be an above zero springy snow, and I am happy, happy, happy about all that! Spring is on it's way! Feel free to nab the new button and use it in your post.
And now it's time to look for our favorite blessings from the week. It is a good practice to look for and recognize the blessings in our lives, on a good week and on those weeks that aren't so great. Guidelines link is in the sidebar if you are new.
1. My Massage Therapist. I have been going for a massage for many a year due to issues in my shoulders and neck and a job that aggravates the problem at times. My massage lady always has done a really great job but she was especially helpful when I mentioned my knee ligament injury. She showed me how to properly "ice" the knee and took extra time to look up stretches for me. Ever since last weekend I've been following her advice and my knee has felt progressively much better. Yes, running a cup sized hunk of ice back and forth over my leg from my mid-thigh to mid-shin until the skin is pinky-red is shockingly chilling at first, but it has really been exactly what my knee needed. I'm thankful for a therapist who knows her stuff!
2. Honey Cinnamon hot drink. I mentioned the other day that I was going to try out a "cold cure" that I had read on pinterest which links here. I've been mixing it into hot water and I must say it is absolutely delicious. Honey and cinnamon both have antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties.. I'm on my second day of having it at least 3 times a day and the cold that is trying to come on me, I must admit, doesn't feel nearly as bad it usually would have. It's not totally gone but it hasn't really settled in for a long stay, if you know what I mean. I just feel better. I might just use this as my evening drink even when I'm not fighting a cold to keep up my immune system.
3. Comfy throw blankets to cuddle up with each evening. Nothing feels as wonderful as a fresh washed throw in the evenings especially when one is trying to fight off a cold.
5. Good report for my Dad from the doctor. What could have been a very scary report turned out to be something minor so that was a huge relief both for my Dad and us. We're very thankful it's something that will require no drugs or surgery but just a change in diet. Something not easy for a senior used to eating a certain way, but certainly doable.
What were your favorite blessings? Were they very obvious or did you have to dig for a few of them? If you share in a post please feel free to add you link onto the Mr. Linky. If you can, I encourage you to visit around to the other FFF participants. Have a great weekend everyone!
