Counting Our Blessings

In the midst of even hard times, it's so important to count our blessings.  I'm finding that I need to really focus on the the many blessings that the Lord has given me, and there are so many. Let me count the ways that the Lord has blessed me this week:

83. I'm thankful for my home. I am so blessed that I have a cozy and lovely home.  It blesses me so much that I have a roof over my head and that it's such a comfortable, homey home.  Having my family around me is such a blessing, too.

84.  I am blessed that my husband helped me outside last night and we sat on the porch for awhile and watched the moon come up.  We looked at the stars - I even saw a shooting star! - and watched the planes fly overhead.  It was lovely and so nice just to be outside for awhile with my hubby.

85.  I'm counting my crock pot as a huge blessing! It's not been always easy to cook meals for my family, but with my crock pot, I can throw something in it in the morning and have a wonderful meal for dinner.  It makes me feel good to be able to have a nice, hot dinner ready for my family.

86.  I'm so thankful for my family.  I know they have been on this list before, but they are definitely worth mentioning again.  They are so patient with me, help me, have understanding, and kindness for me.  I am so blessed by the love of my family.
