Friday Favorites: April 29 – "Y" Edition

April is almost over!  It seems strange that Easter was last weekend, and next weekend is Mother’s Day.  I’ll start off with my “Y” favorites.
  • Yes! – My all time favorite “Y” word; as in “Yes Mom, I did an awesome job on my chores without being asked.”  Can it be a favorite even if it’s not real?
  • Yellow Submarine – While I like the song as much as the next guy, it probably doesn’t qualify as a favorite since I don’t own a copy.  Marian Allen has the cutest Lego video of it.

These little beauties showed up in my RSS feed today.  There both food related – go figure.

eXtremely Blessed

These last few letters of the A to Z Challenge are going to be tough, I’m curious to see what the other participants pull together.  Hopefully I’m not the only cheater using words like extreme.

I want to use today’s post to counter how overwhelmed I’ve been feeling, and focus on my blessings.

  • I’m extremely blessed to have a wonderful family.
  • I’m extremely blessed to have the gospel in my life.
  • I’m extremely blessed to be healthy.
  • I’m extremely blessed to have my temporal needs met.
  • I’m extremely blessed for my education and life experiences.
  • I’m blessed my garden is growing.

These are my basics (except for the garden – that’s a new one for me), and the list goes on and on.  Sometimes life is hard, but the hard stuff seems less overwhelming when I focus on the good stuff.  Share what’s blessing your life today.
