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 pictures.  :)  Each year for Christmas, I do a photo calendar for Michael's parents and for the last 2 years, my Dad and his wife.  It is so fun to look back over time as you search for the right pictures to put on the calendar.  So many fun memories and time spent as a family.  This year on my side I get to add my brand new Great-nephew.  Some years somebody is missing as far as the birthdays listed.  It is a reminder of how large our families are and how few we have lost at this point.  That is a HUGE blessing.

These make a great gift by the way.  They are easy to do and they often give out coupons that make them very reasonable to buy.  We have tried Snapfish and Shutterfly over the years and like them both.  Last year, I tried Picaboo and theirs were so much nicer that we went with them this year again.  They have you download a program that allows you to set up your book or calendar on your computer.  Once you are happy with it, you can upload it through their program very easily.  You can share your book or calendar on line.  Also, if you use my link for Picaboo and join, then I get a $10 credit.

What are YOU thankful for?

Hey! I love you music on this blog. Sometimes I come just to listen! Your pics look like our place. Where are you located?

Oh, I am blessed today by a beautiful rain and a healthy family. :)
