Counting Our Blessings - Link Up

This has been a very stressful week and I need to focus on my blessings more than ever. I know I've shared how difficult it is to deal with everything and I see the stress affecting my family, too. Truly, I couldn't do this without the Lord...He is my Rock!

Let's focus on the blessings!!

65.  I went to my wound care doctor last Friday and I have no more tunnels in my wound! This is huge and I feel like I'm starting to see some healing. I had two wound in my knee and one is completely healed, too. It's just so slow...I am very thankful for the healing and for the doctor I have and all the caring nurses, including my in-home nurse. I am blessed!

66.  There has been a name change for my new little girl. Lily just didn't fit her - she has a really bold personality and she needed a new name. She wasn't responding to Lily, either, so I decided to change her name to Mitzi. She is definitely a Mitzi! I haven't come up with a middle name yet but if you have an idea, I'd love to hear it! I still like the "Lou" in honor of my Tammy Lou, but I'm not sure it sounds right. Anyway, without further ado, here's my sweet blessing - Mitzi!

67. I am so thankful that when I feel tired, I can lie down and take a nap. I really fought this for a long time as I felt so guilty, but I started praying about it and I really feel like the Lord is telling me to rest right now in preparation for what He has for me to do. I am so blessed that we have a Lord we can go to over everything and get an answer. I really do need more rest than I've been getting and it's such a blessing to know that I can just rest.

68.  We have had such nice, cool days lately. Rain has been falling here - not really hard - but enough to give everything a nice drink and to cool the temperatures off quite a bit. There's nothing better than being able to open the doors and windows to let fresh air into a house that has been closed up for the summer. Such a blessing!

69.  I've been working on my crochet as much as I can. It's so relaxing and I've got a lot of squares now. Here's just a sample of four...

It's such a blessing to be able to do something I enjoy when I'm not feeling well.

Now it's your turn to share your own blessings. Please link up below!
