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 grateful that we are able to grow lots of our own veggies and herbs. I especially love the perennial herbs that come back each year. I will warn you though... If you are going to plant fennel... put it in a bed by itself. It doesn't know when to stop and it tries to take over other things. :)

Here are some of my herbs that are coming back. The oregano especially comes back well.

I already have some herbs hanging up to dry. There is more to pick and hang as well. This makes the house smell good too.
This is the comfrey plant that refuses to die. :) I have dug it up about 5 times to give to someone. The sheep have eaten it all the way to the ground and each year it comes back big and healthy.

What are YOU thankful for?
