Count Your Blessings Monday

I am giving us an opportunity every Monday to not only count our blessings, but to share them with others. This is a way that we can encourage one another. Make a post on your blog telling us about your blessing. Please put a link back to this post. You can add the URL of your blog post on Mr. Linky below. If you don't have a blog, then just leave a comment and share your blessing. Many of our blessings we will have pictures of and we can share those as well. 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. They encourage others. We can share so many other things.... special gifts, recipes, let's take the time to share how God has blessed us!!

I was totally blessed by family and friends. I was queen for a day!! My birthday was a very good one. I was made to feel like a queen. It also ended up being a snowman birthday!! You saw the snowman family the neighbor children made for me and the beautiful snowman cake that they made. Plus, they got me a gift card to CHIPOTLE!!! (with a note for me to do unto others as I would have them do unto me). My son got me darling sterling silver snowman earrings and a candle that smells OH SO GOOD!!!! Another friend brought over a gift. It is the 2 snowmen you see above. I love the one holding the candy dish. He is so cute. The second one is a box that had peppermint candies (one of my favorite candy) and a cute little snowman on a stick. I put him in the plant in my living room. I guess people know I like snowmen. =) I got lots of phone calls and cards and ecards. I got taken out to dinner. It was a great day.
