Counting Our Blessings - Link Up!

It's time to count our blessings again! I look forward to focusing on how good God is to us every week.

11. I dearly love orchids but they are usually so expensive! I found this beauty at Sam's club last week and it was only $11.00! I thought the color was so exquisite and the flower so unusual.

The other thing I loved about this orchid, is all the buds on this plant. It should bloom for a long time, which is so nice. 
It's such a blessing to have something so beautiful!

12.  Look at this face...

Cookie is such a little love bug. She sits with me every day and sleeps. She is one of the most affectionate dogs ever! She blesses me so much with her unconditional love and her adorable face!

13.  I found out something two days ago about my surgery, that I didn't know, and as my son said, "Mom, it's just amazing that you didn't die that day!" I agree. When that doctor cut my artery, God truly had His hand on me and saved my life (and my leg!). It truly is a miracle! I'm so thankful each and every day for God's blessing of continued life here with my family.

14.  Okay, you all know that I love "My Little Pony". I know, I know...LOL  Anyway, I finally was able to get a shelf cleared off to display all my pony stuff. It took me a while, but I did it! Here's a picture of my pony shelf

My husband and son have bought me most of these pony things. They are so sweet to add to my collection! My shelf is right in front of my chair so I can see my little ponies all the time. Every time I look at them, they just make me smile - and that - is a blessing!

What are your blessings this week? Please share on the link up and don't forget to grab a button! Thank you so much.

Blessings - Julie


  1. Really cute my little pony collection. Beautiful orchid. I love the idea of counting our blessings. We would be surprise how many they really are to count.

  2. Aww, sweet Cookie. I am so very thankful for our poodles. They offer such unconditional, unwavering love.
    I am praying for you dear Julie!
