Thankful for Simple Blessings

As I continue to count my every day blessings, I have to smile.

This used to be my bathroom in our previous home.  I enjoyed taking long bubble baths in this tub.

This is the bathroom in our condo.  It's much smaller  but I can still enjoy taking a long bubble bath.

The tub may not be as fancy but I still get to light my candles and listen to soft music.

I've realized after experiencing so many losses over the past few years that it really doesn't matter where you live.

I'm thankful for simple blessings:

#516 A place to live
#517 A wonderful family that I love
#518 A job where I get to work with little children
#519 A husband who tries to help create an atmosphere of love in our home
#520 Receiving a sweet note from my Vice Principal thanking me for my positive presence on campus
#521 A group of co-workers who are joining together to be accountable as we lose weight and become healthier
#522 A clean condo

I had to leave you with this photo of my nieces Kristin and Katie with little Kenzie Lee.  This baby is so loved.  Katie came down from New York to Florida to visit our family.  Unfortunately, I'm in Arizona so I couldn't be with them but I enjoy the photos.

I'm linking up with Ann of A Holy Experience for Multitudes on Mondays.

Blessings and love,

Debbie Petras

  1. Debbie,
    You have done a lovely job with the new bath - I see all your "Debbie touches." It is right that you can be content in your new bathroom. I believe Paul had something to say about that.

  2. You have great blessings for sure. I love that shelf above your bathtub. Here is another blessing-the new tub is easier to clean.
    I love the picture with the baby. That is so adorable.

  3. I think both bathrooms look immaculate and lovely! The color on the walls of your condo is what I'm thinking about for my kitchen!! :)

    Your kids are so precious Debbie, and the way you describe them always makes me smile. They are beyond blessed to have Miss Debbie!

    Miss you!

  4. Oh, you are such an inspiration as you continue to "make lemonade out of lemons." I just know the Lord has even greater things in store for you. Hugs!

  5. Dear Debbie,
    The first bathroom is more impressive, but the condo bath is definitely more elegant than ours. You've got that infinitely touch of class in everything you do. I think you should thank for that gift too.
    I have known you from when you lived in a castle,I were extraordinarily nice and empathic then, now you are growing to a giant.
    It's a blessing to follow you.
    From feli

  6. I love your perspective. I think your little condo bathroom is beautiful and intimate. You are so blessed with a job you love and an amazing family!


I love to read your comments! I know you have something to share so join in the conversation. And thank you for taking the time.
