Counting Our Blessings - Link Up!

What a week. I've just been so over-whelmed with all our country has gone through in this past week. I was glued to the TV, like many of you, and I found that it truly did affect me. I feel so very sad for the people in Boston, the families of the victims, those who were hurt so terribly, and for all of us because, after all, it is our country. We like to think we are safe, but we're not. In the end, it is only God who gives us assurance. I had to finally take a break from all the news because it was too much. I had to focus on the One who holds it all in His hands. The One who blesses us.

Now for the blessings of my week:

66. My knee is feeling better! What a blessing. I took a couple little walks this week and enjoyed the outdoors. It was so nice to not have that horrible pain and I am truly thankful!

67. All the beauty in my yard is blessing me so much. The birds, the flowers, the trees! I love them all and they remind me that the Lord loves to bless us with beauty.

68. I did some cooking this week - more than usual - because I could get around my kitchen without pain! I love blessing my family with nice meals and it blesses me in the process.

69. I found time to do the writing I needed to get done. I also found that I had more energy and for that, I am truly blessed!

70. The blessings of this week were small but so important. It's the little things that sometimes mean so much to us, especially after such a difficult week. The safety of my home, the love of my family, my little dogs that keep me company. All are huge blessings.

Now it's your turn! Share your own blessings of the week on the linky below.
