Find Blessing In The Smallest Thing

Yesterday, we finally got some really good rain. The heat index for our area been 110F to 115F. So, the heavy rain was a nice change. The not so nice change was that when we got home, all the power was out. Bring back so many memories to our days after hurricane Ike.

I did learn something though. When hubby & I were talking about how we might have to sleep without A/C, etc., I started to think, is that our only problem? And no internet. I looked at hubby and said do you know how blessed we are? At least we're not in the middle of flood like in Pakistan, or mud slide in China. We have our house, we're not stranded, who are we to complain?

When I came to this realization, suddenly not having power didn't seem so bad. We know we'll get the power back on sooner or later. At other country, they'll be lucky if they get power for 2-3 hours a day and you might not even know when you're going to have power again. If we open our eyes and see how some of the world lives, we're beyond lucky & blessed. I mean, even when you're poor, being poor in the States still better than being poor let's say in Haiti, or other poor regions. I just want to say, if all we worried about was a few hours of no A/C, no internet, life is really pretty good!!

I enjoyed my down time of no power by reading a book that I truly enjoy. I get to chill out & relax. Find blessing even in the smallest thing. :) When you can do this, you'll be much happier about life in general.

Like I thought, we had our power back on by late evening. Shouldn't even waste time worrying. Before we went to bed, I made this quick but cute mini card as well. This card size is 2.75 x 4.25.

This cute image is from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps. They have the cutest digi stamp! This card also goes for these challenges:
Allsorts - something less than 3" in size
Create4fun - birthday card
Stamp Something - use something digi

Hope your day is filled with many blessings and I am sure if you just think about it, you have plenty of blessings to be thankful for everyday! Have a super duper blessed happy day, peeps!! Hugs, Vera.
