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 reminded again this week of how blessed I am with family. I got to see my Dad and 2 of my brothers and their families yesterday morning at church. Then we went to see Michael's parents and got to see most of his siblings as well. I look around at people I know and I see just how blessed we are at our age to still have parents around. Our families still like to be together and enjoy the company. Joshua and Britty came over later and spent some time here as well. It is good to have family around that you can spend time with. Most of our family is within driving distance. I have a brother in Florida and Michael has one in Michigan. Remember to make time for family. They are important. :)

What are YOU thankful for?
