Wake Up Wednesday

Last week's challenge was to slow down.  I felt like I did this one well - part by choice and part by force.  Between some different sicknesses we've been taking things pretty slow around here.  The boys and I have spent a LOT of time playing games.  That's something everyone can do whether they are sick or not.  Thanks to many tips from you, we have a lot of games the boys love.  Busytown, Zingo, and Uno are the current favorites.  

Next week's challenge is to recognize your blessings.  I plan on keeping a little notepad next to my bed to jot ideas down at the end of the day.  

This challenge comes from this quote I love.

“Ask yourself, 'How did God bless me today?' If you do that long enough and with faith, you will find yourself remembering blessings. And sometimes, you will have gifts brought to your mind which you failed to notice during the day, but which you will then know were a touch of God’s hand in your life.” –Henry B. Eyring

Life has been pushing and stretching me a bit lately, so this is a challenge I really need.

So did any of you try to slow down?  I'd love to hear about it.  Thanks for being here.
