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 family.  We often take them for granted.  Yesterday morning we had a good time of fellowship with our church family.  After we got home, I left to go and see my brand new Great-Nephew, Lane.
Isn't he adorable.  I did not get to see his big sister, Lexi.  She was napping.  New babies are a big deal and I am always thrilled to get to hold them when they are tiny.  I had a nice visit with Carli, my niece.  Her brother, Scott also came by so I was able to visit with him a while too.  I don't often get to see him.  

I left there and went to visit my Dad.  He had surgery just over a week ago.  The skin over his eyes had sagged enough that it affected his sight.  They removed some skin and tightened the area up.  He had bruising around his eyes, but he said it was much better than before. 

We milked the cow last night and were putting her away.  She ran out under the fence and would not come to us.  We called the Wonderful Neighbors who are very much family to us and they sent out the cow patrol.  Michael is always the strategist when he is here.  He told us all where to stand and what to do and the cow went right in.  :) 

What are YOU thankful for?
