Counting my Blessings....

This is something I try to make time for every single day. I strive to remember that every day is a gift, that's why it's called the present....right?  But I am human, and tend to overlook the positive things right in front of me and see more of the negative....I always end up with more on my calendar than can possibly be accomplished and feel like I'm forever running here and there....I guess we are all that way to a degree.  No matter what comes along or doesn't come along for that matter, I am so blessed, in so many, many ways and I never want to forget that. A few of my many blessings are:

  • A God above who loves me no matter what
  • My hardworking husband
  • Six beautiful children
  • Two wonderful daughters-in-law
  • Both my parents are still with us
  • Two wonderful brothers and families
  • One sister and her lovely family just a mile away
  • Lots of nieces and nephews
  • Wonderful in-laws
  • A great place to live
  • Plenty to eat
  • Plenty to wear
  • The privilege of homeschooling my children
  • The opportunity to go to nursing school
  • My music family
  • Great friends (yes, you know who you are)
  • Just being loved and needed by so many great people
Thank you all from the deepest corner of my heart for being a part of my life and for just being you. There will always be that one more thing that we wish we had time to do, or one more something or other that we wish  we could have.  The truth is, most of us really and truly do have all we need.  We have each other, and that's one thing money can never buy. It's the little things in life that matter the most.
Thank you for stopping by.  Have yourself a wonderful week :)
