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 for family. Many times we take family for granted. However, as we often learn, life is fleeting and we need to take advantage of our opportunities and chances now. We need to often times make opportunities to spend time with them, even if it is only by phone. We are so blessed to have Joshua and Brittany up here by us. However, her family is apart from them and that is hard. I am truly enjoying having a daughter though. They may not always live by us. I need to enjoy them now. Michael's Mom is having surgery tomorrow to remove a small part of her colon. She has been the best most sweetest Mother-in-love. I pray she is around a lot longer. My Dad and his wife were not feeling very good here recently. I am glad to say they seem to be doing better. Life is short and uncertain and I am thankful for the family that I do have and that I do get to spend time with them.
