Here is an opportunity for all of us to give thanks unto the Lord for a blessing in our lives. If you would like to take part great. If not that is OK too. If you would like to share your blessing, just leave it in the comments. If you want to use the picture above and list a blessing on your own site, then leave a URL to your site in the comments. There is no pressure here. I just know that I am incredibly blessed and I would like to share that and give thanks to Him who all blessing come from. This is a way that we can encourage one another. I know that I am often encouraged when someone shares a blessing with me. I think that many times we forget that it is a blessing to be able to breath, to get out of bed, to hold a baby... Share your blessings with us. We can share so many other things.... special gifts, recipes, let's take the time to share how God has blessed us!!
Today, I am thankful for the Mom that God gave me. Five years ago today, I got that phone call that everyone dreads. My Mom did not wake up that morning here on Earth, but in that heavenly home above. It is the hardest thing I have ever faced and still hurts so much. She is missed daily.
I take this day each year to remind people to tell the people in their lives that they love them. Mend any broken fences and make right all relationships, because you never know when one of you will be gone. My Mom went to bed totally healthy as far as we knew and never woke up. Time is too precious to leave rifts in relationships.
