Count Your Blessings Sunday

Count Your Blessings Sunday

Welcome to Count Your Blessings Sunday. I was inspired to start this blog carnival because I have a friend who has a habit of focusing on the problems life has instead of the blessings. We've actually been discussing this for some time and realized that a lot of times when life throws lemons at us some of us just look at the lemons and cry and if they hit us really hard we may say ouch! and then stand there and cry. So the point behind this very long rambling is to take a moment and find the sugar in your life that might just help you to take those lemons and turn them into lemonade, because we all know leomonade is much better than just a plain lemon.

So here goes...

I'm counting my blessings:

1) My husband, the love of my life. God knew what He was doing when he sent Yohn in my direction.

2) My children, the apples of my eye. They may keep me on my toes but I love them to pieces.

3) My husband and I both have jobs. I know there are a lot of people struggling to find work, so I rejoice that I have a job.

4) My children were very sweet and thoughful of each other last night. It's always one of those moments I should appreciate more.

5) The ants have not yet invaded any of our food (only our trashcan, don't laugh), and hopefully what I did this morning will send them packing.

6) I had fun scrap booking with friends yesterday. I'm learning not to take these days for granted because you never know when we'll get to do them again.

7) I am going to church this morning.

Now it's your turn, are you ready? Just grab the button code on the left side and paste it in your post. Then write about the blessings in your life this week. Let others know that if they click on the button at the top of you post that they can visit my blog and participate as well. Publish your post then come back here and put your name and blog address in the MckLinky. I hope you'll join us!
