Counting Our Blessings - LinkUp!

This is the first Counting Our Blessings for 2018! I have high hopes for this year and am excited to start counting my blessings. I hope you are, too.

1. The first thing I am always thankful for is my family. 2017 wasn't exactly easy for us and we went through so much. Some of which we are still going through with this latest surgery I had. My family has stood beside me, helping me and encouraging me. I am so thankful and so blessed!

2.  I have been blessed with wonderful in home nurses. I have one in particular that has gone above and beyond to help me. She was the one that tried everything and anything to help with the ostomy bag when it wouldn't stay on. She has come to my home late at night to replace a bag that has fallen off or leaked. She has given of herself and helped me so much. I am so thankful for her. As a token of my appreciation, I made her this for Christmas.

3.  I actually made quite a few of these pins to give to my other nurse and a few special friends. I got the idea from a fellow painter who encouraged us to show random acts of kindness to those that have touched our lives. I had so much fun painting these!

4.  I also made a few of these ornaments. Can you stand the cuteness?

I didn't make too many of these but did share with some of my most favorite people. :)

5.  Of course, my blessings wouldn't be complete without these two! The baby girls got all prettied up for Christmas. They didn't keep those bows in too long but it was fun while it lasted!

Don't you feel like Mitzi is saying, "Talk to the paw!" LOL She's such a cutie and I adore her. These babies just bless me beyond measure.

Now it's your turn! Please share on the linky below. You can share your blessings, something that you think would bless others, something you've made, a recipe...anything that blesses!

Blessings - Julie

  1. Oh Julie,your creations are so very cute! And of course your girls. :D I too am so thankful for my family. They have been helping me loads these last weeks. My neck has been causing me to not be able to do so many things.


Please leave me a message! I love hearing what you have to say and look forward to your comments.
