Counting Our Blessings

I completely missed last Tuesday's "Count Our Blesings". I had a rather down week and just didn't do much blogging.  I'm in a lot of pain, but I want to make sure I count my blessings and look up rather than to my troubles.

So here are the things I'm thankful for:

6.  I'm so thankful for my husband who takes such wonderful care of me and never makes me feel like a burden. He made his famous hoagie sandwich for us yesterday and today and that's something to be really thankful for! (I'm not sure if it's cheating to be thankful for something twice, but I am so thankful for my hubby, I had to say it twice!)

7.  My church family that checks in on me even though I haven't been able to be there since Christmas. They include me as much as possible even though I'm stuck at home.

8.  My working hands. I can do my counted cross stitch, my crochet, write on my laptop, and take care of daily grooming.  My hands keep me involved in doing things even though I'm in pain.

9.  My Bible.  It comforts me, gives me wisdom, and makes me feel the Spirit of the Lord is sitting near.  How wonderful to have this beautiful book from our Lord!

10.  My quilts that I tuck around me each night as I go to sleep in my recliner.  They keep me warm, are soft and tuck in all those areas in the chair to keep the cold air out.

I really am blessed....

God bless you - Julie
