Thank you to my online buddy Madeline who's blog is always an encouraging place to go, today she reminded me to count my blessings (even though so far everything felt like it was going wrong), counting my blessings has definitely made me look at things differently and encouraged me to return to the sunny side! 

My List of Blessings
  1. Upcoming trip
  2.  A car that works to take me there (with ac)
  3. My family and friends who have become family like Michelle who is always so quick to offer a helping hand (even post surgery!!)
  4. A hubby who has a week off (hopefully to move us!) and brings with him so much peace!
  5. Surprises bought with love when he comes home from running errands (the chocolate and wine variety)
  6.  The promise of a new home (that doesnt fall apart or fall on me)
  7.  The ability to do the move myself, even if i don't want to!
  8. Popcorn
  9. The knowlage that God really will take care of me and the memories of the past times he has done just that!
  10. small knitting to do with our lack of AC
  11. iced coffee
  12. sundresses
  13. Worship music (where I find comfort in the tough transitions)
  14. Blogland buddies with kind and wise words... who really helped to change my day! 


  1. Awesome list of blessings. Something I probably should do from time to time myself. It's way too easy to fall into the whole 'the world is falling on me and everything is falling apart' without seeing what we do have. On another note, I just found your blog and I'm enjoying reading it today. :)

  2. That's an excellent list!^^....and I could sure go for iced coffee right about now.hehe

  3. :-) Thanks so much for the compliment!! I'm so glad you were inspired. What a great list of blessings. God is so wonderful!
