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 prayer. Thanks to praying friends and their suggestions we are having a much better time with the new cow. We take a bucket up to the field with a wee bit of grain (which we are weaning her off of) and some alfalfa pellets. Michael shakes the bucket and calls her. She comes to him. This is a big plus because we were having to catch her. Then we each take one side of her halter and for the most part, she walks all the way to the barn before stopping. :) We give her a bit from the bucket and then pull her halter and then move on. We have a routine that we do and she is getting used to it. She is letting her milk down and we are getting at least 2.5 gallons each evening. I need to get some new pictures of her. Here are the ones we have.
