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!!

Today, I am thankful that I am once again feeling human.  :)  I got an abscess in one of my teeth and had to go to the dentist last week.  They gave me antibiotics to take.  I had not been sleeping very well at night because of the tooth and then the antibiotics killed off not only the bad, but also my healthy flora and fauna and the crud finally caught up to me.  Sleep is very important to your immune system.  If you have trouble sleeping then you have to be extra careful.  Also, your diet plays an important part in your immune system.  We were not really bad, but we did eat more stuff than we normally do during the holidays.  Michael had been off for a long stretch and that throws our schedules off, so we were not taking our herbs and vitamins like we should either.  I firmly believe that my health is in God's hands, but He does want me to do what I can.  :)  All of the above combined left me open to catch something and I did. 

I have a lot to accomplish this week and I am hoping to get it all done!!!   I am making lists and hope to start marking them off one by one. 

What are you thankful for today?
