Counting Our Blessings - Link Up!

Today, I'm feeling much better than I was yesterday. I had what I call a "cranky" day yesterday and was just not easy to get along with and had a real negative attitude. Today, I'm back to my normal self - focusing on God and all the blessings He does for me every day. I'm glad that's my normal attitude. It was no fun for me to be negative yesterday and, definitely, not fun for my hubby! Poor guy! lol He took it in stride, though, and understands that this whole thing with my leg has been hard for me. I guess some days it just hits me harder than others, especially if I'm tired like I was. So, on that note - lets get started counting our blessings!!

20.  I am so thankful for the caring family that I have. Even though I can do a lot more than I did before, my family still has to do a lot for me. They have to drive me every where because I'm not allowed to drive yet, and they never, ever complain! I am so blessed to have such a wonderful, loving family!

21.  I am thankful for every minute I have left with Holly. She has been such a sweet, little companion and I adore her. I'm blessed that she isn't suffering and I'm thankful for the years I'm had with her.

22.  I'm so happy that Spring is here! The warmer weather just blesses me and makes me feel so much better!

23.  I have been working on my faith art journal and I'm so glad that I finally feel like doing something artistic. I haven't been able to do any of my cross stitch or my crocheting because I don't seem to be able to concentrate and it makes me so tired, for some reason. Being able to do some creative things just blesses me so much!

24.  My biggest blessing this week is that I was able to go to church last weekend! I took lots of tissues with me because I was afraid I would start crying as I saw my friends. I did fine until I saw my assistant pastor. The minute I saw him, I started to cry. I have known him for years and years and he has always been kind of like a dad to me. There was something about seeing him that just made me break down. He came over and talked to me and prayed over me and I was so blessed!! There is nothing like being with my church family - it blesses me down to my toes!!

Now it's your turn to share your blessings!! Please link up with me below!
