Count Your Blessings Monday!!

Here is an opportunity for you to give thanks unto the Lord for a blessing in your life. If you have a blog, please sign Mr. Linky below and post on your blog. Please link back to this blog and you may use the picture above. If you do not have a blog, leave a comment on this post telling us what you are thankful for and what you are counting as a blessing today. This is a way that we can encourage one another. 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!!

Today, I want to count the blessing of my sweet husband. I know I have counted him as a blessing before, but I could count him as a blessing each and every day. He is a true sweetheart and has the patience of Job. He has after all been married to me for almost 30 years. :) We have grown up together. Here we are in December of 1978. He was 21 and I had just turned 20.

We got married in April of 1979.

I am not sure how old this picture is, but it is at least 10 or 12 years old.

This was taken at my son's wedding in October.
Michael has been a wonderful and faithful provider and friend. He opens car doors and doors for me. He thanks me for the meals I cook. He took such sweet tender care of me when I had meningitis. He does little things to make my life easier. He sometimes lets me win games (although I really don't mind losing). He encourages me when I am down. He holds me and lets me cry when I need to. He can laugh with me and even sometimes at me, but not in a mean way. He will occasionally stop and pick wild flowers that he brings home to me, or he will surprise me with a bouquet for no reason. He listens to my dreams, desires and complaints. I am truly a blessed woman. He has really been reaching out to me since Joshua is gone. It has been almost like another honeymoon. I am very grateful to God for giving me the gift of this man. I love him with all that I am.

Sweet hubbys ARE a precious blessing. How lucky you are! Have a great Monday Marci!

BTW - I'm really enjoying some things in the box of goodies you sent. I tried the Dandy-drink - it's not like anything I've had before. I REALLY like the soap. My hubby likes the tea. Thanks so much.

I agree--your dh is a wonderful blessing that you should count over and over!

Btw, I do NOT believe that one picture is of you two--I think it is someone else--IT DOESN"T LOOK LIKE EITHER ONE OF YOU!'
