Counting Our Blessings

I just love this! I saw this over at "A Homemaker's Heart" and I knew I wanted to do this! God really does bless us so much and it's really important - in fact, vital - to focus on all the blessings we have.  It makes us look at things different when we're looking at our blessings instead of our hardships.  I have so much to be thankful for!

1.  The new Trenta size drink at Starbucks! YES! What could be better than 6 ounces more of my favorite iced coffee?  They make it just like I like it - 3 pumps of sweetner - and it's just wonderful!

2.  My youngest son who went and got me said iced coffee after his physical therapy this morning. :)

3.  My hubby who is always concerned about me, brings me iced water, and loves me unconditionally. How wonderful is that?

4.  My oldest son who takes on so much responsibility for his family members who have ill health.  I'm thankful that he's always willing to step up and help us with love and care.

5.  I'm also thankful for my little Yorkie, Holly, who keeps me company and loves me during this long process of healing.  She is always with me and has a loving look, a sweet kiss, or a little paw to the hand or face.  She also loves my constant brushing and bows in her hair. What a sweetie!

God has blessed me so much and I love to focus on my blessings. What do you feel blessed by in your life?

God bless you - Julie


  1. Thank you for joining us! REALLY, Starbucks offers a larger size now?? Yum!

    How wonderful to have your helping sons and husband. Amen!

    ...and a Yorkie, too! Holly is just darling. We have a Yorkie names Leila. She's not too much of a lover, but she is always around and faithfully is a good couch cuddler and warns us of company arriving to visit.

    Have a great week!

  2. What? Trenta? I can't wait to see what that's like- just as soon as I get back to the mainland where I can have a REAL Starbucks!

  3. Thank you for visiting and following my blog, I followed you back! Your blog is so cute!

    I just heard about SB's new size yesterday. All I can say is WOW! :D

    Holly is just adorable! She looks so huggable, I love her little bow!

  4. There is so much to be thankful for! I'm sure your list could go on and on!

  5. I love Holly! Thanks for sharing all - yummy treats and thoughtful family.

  6. I enjoyed reading your thankful thoughts and the photo of your very sweet pup!
