Count your blessings

I've been thinking a lot about blessings recently. God blesses me in so many ways and I unfortunately don't always recongize these gifts.

There is something about the temperature dropping 20 degrees that reminds me of God's grace. Hurricanes flood us, fire tear us down, but God's love and provision remain.

Today I've recognized His blessings in...

...the first sip of this season's pumpkin spice latte.
...in the way my maltipoo's excitement because her momma came home for lunch never weakens.
...in sore muscles because I've been blessed with a body that has the ability to workout.
...in the way my husband drives 1 hour to come home every night because he knows
how important family is.
...and in the piles of paper on my desk because I have a job that challenges me and
colleagues that believe in me.

Too blessed to be stressed. :)


  1. Lovely post! Gratitude is the best attitude. Continued Blessings to you and your family.

  6. It is such a lost art to truly think of what we have to be grateful for. I have times when I write down five things everyday on my calendar
    that I was grateful for that day. It helps me get back on track of being aware of all the good I enjoy on a daily basis.
