counting my blessings

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

sometimes i need to remind myself of the many great things i have in my life:
(not necessarily in order of importance)

14 years of knowing my dh, 8 years as a couple and our 3rd anniversary is tomorrow

a big, supportive family, most of whom live close by

my good health

4 happy and healthy grandbabies (dh's room is just down from a dialysis unit where i have seen a toddler going every other day and let me tell you, that makes me immeasurably grateful)

our 6 (3 each) grown kids

a great place in the country with some animals

food on the table and enough money to pay the bills

chocolate ice cream

awesome friends

i feel better now

    Thanks! I really needed to read a blog just like this one! I needed a reminder of all the good things in my life. Too often I focus on the negative, on things I have lost. I forget the wonderful things and people that I do have in my life. Thanks for a much needed wake up call. Have a very good week my friend! Ellen emoticon

    You do have alot to be grateful for! Just yesterday, I updated my facebook status saying basically the same thing...that life is good and I'm so thankful for all the blessings in my life. I don't think I say it often enough. When you think life is tough, all you have to do is look around, watch the news or pick up a paper and it's quite a reality check!!

    Congrats to you and your dh on your 3rd Anniversary!!

    Isn't it funny that when something bad happens to us we are reminded it could always be worse! We should all daily count our blessings! THanks for the reminder!
