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 am so grateful to God for the Mom He gave me. If you have read my blog for very long at all, you know that I lost my Mom in 2005 very unexpectedly. She went to bed one night in perfect health as far as we knew and never woke up the next morning. I don't think I will ever get over it, although it is not quite so intense anymore. I was my Mom's only daughter. We did not always get along. However, I PRAISE GOD that we did finally become friends. I had a good Mom who loved me. She did the best she knew how and took good care of us. I am not sure why, but she has been in my thoughts a lot the last few days. I miss her so much it hurts. Yet, I am so grateful for the example she gave me in so many areas. She loved the Lord and read her Bible and prayed for many many people. She was a prayer warrior and I miss those prayers. She did a lot for others. She made meals, gave gifts of the items she crocheted. Made phone calls to those who were hurting. I just want to thank God publically for the wonderful Mom He gave to me. I can't wait to see her again some day.
