Blessings all around...

Good Morning!! Wow, what a weekend!! I have to share lots with y'all. Saturday morning I awoke to, "Mom, the refrigerator is not working." Oh no. I'll say that our fridge was older. I bought it 9 years ago and it was probably about six years old then. The freezer has been freezing up a lot lately and ruining food, particularly ice cream. The bottom shelf on the fridge part{it was a fridge on top, freezer on bottom} would freeze whatever was in the chill drawers, so it was just a matter of time. Anyway, we were gifted by an anonymous source{we know who, they just want to be on the down low ;)} with this brand new refrigerator. God is so good, y'all!! I'm really on my last nerve with all the blows we've dealt with this year, but God has brought us thru every one. Still waiting on our van, though, and that is not making me super duper happy...

Anyway, love this beaut!! The rest of our appliances are black and stainless so this one looks much better than our big white one. Thank you, you know who you are!!

I posted about this wall some time ago last year. I have wanted to add beadboard to this wall since we moved in and the funds, etc. just haven't been there. Well, one day I was driving in the older downtown area of my little town and beside the fence of this house was a ton of beadboard. I asked the gentleman sitting on his porch if it was his wood and he said I could take it. Y'all, there was at least two full sheets and lots of smaller, but tall enough pieces. I love how God provides for even our smallest little desires!! Then, at Wal-Mart, I was looking at the oops paint and what did I find but the very blush, petal pink paint I was wanting for my laundry room!! Color me happy, girls!!
One last shout out...The wonderful, kind, sweet Heather of Blessed Little Nest is responsible for my cute new look. I mentioned that I loved her blog look and she so kindly offered to do mine. I am so not computer savvy, so this was a real treat. Thank you so much, Heather!!

It's hard to see the blessings when we are going through tough times. You do a graceful job of taking life's punches and letting God pick you back up! I got my swap package today!! I love it all! I am writing my blog post on it now!
