Count Your Blessings Monday!!

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!!

I have so many things to be thankful for.  This week, my blessing is my friend Karen.  If you have read my blog for over a year you will remember my friend I had not seen in 34 years came to visit.  Well, she came back this year!!  We had a wonderful time again.  We did not do as much running around this year because it was cold and rainy.  That just gave us an excuse to sit and talk more.  We made cheddar cheese and butter one day and feta cheese another day.  We ate pumpkin bread and pumpkin ice cream.  While we were out one evening, I got my taste of pumpkin fudge for this year.  It was pumpkin and praline.  It had a layer of pralines between 2 layers of pumpkin fudge.  We shared the generous sample we were given.  It was a time of relaxation and enjoyment.  It is good to be able to spend time with a friend.

What are YOU thankful for?
