I hope that you will bear with me.

I feel the need to say how blessed I am.

You know when life gets a little overwhelming and you tend to dwell on the negative instead of the positive?

Then a little voice whispers, count your blessings.

So, I am going to do just that.

I have a husband who loves me no matter what.

Now, I put this man through a lot of crap.


It's seems to be one thing after another with me.

He never yells, rolls his eyes yes, but always loves and supports.

No matter what.

I am thinking of throwing another curve ball at him.

I might have to have knee surgery-but that is for another post.

I know that he will still love me, and he will help me and do the laundry even when I know that he doesn't want to.

Because thats how he is.

Thats how he was raised.

He is a better man than I deserve.

I am so blessed to be a mom.

A mom to three girls.

Girls that I know when they get big, will always come home.

Because thats what girls do.

They bless my life by their giggles when they are supposed to be sleeping, sharing and helping, and just doing what is right.

It times like this when I am overwhelmed with love for these little people, and all the big things that they teach me everyday.

I am so blessed to be a sister and a daughter.

My little sister blessed her first little girl yesterday.

I was so proud to be her sister.

When her husband said such sweet words, I was overwhelmed with tears and love.

Love for my little sister who picked such a good man, and who now knows how much our mom really loves us.

When she stood up in testimony meeting, she said such a sweet thing.

I must share.

One of her clients was telling her how she was said that her daughter never had children.

Shawni asked her why-

she said-She will never know how much I love her.

Isn't that the truth. It is not until we have our own child, that we truly understand the love our moms have for us.

How blessed I am to have my mom and dad.

These great people who have raised me to strong, faithful and prayerful.

These wonderful people who love me no matter what and who would do anything for me.

Many times I feel unworthy of such love.

I love them and are beyond grateful for their sacrifices that they have made for me and my family.

I thankful for a home that keeps me warm and safe.

I am thnkful for the love that abounds in my home, that allows the walls to be a haven for me and my family.

I am thankful for husbands job. As hard as it is sometimes, we are blessed to be empolyed.

I am most thankful to know that I am never alone in this world.

I am thankful that no matter what, I can turn to my Heavenly Father and know that he listens and loves me.

I am thankful that he has enough trust in me to raise 3 of his most choice spirits.

I am thankful for the strength that friends give, the love that they offer and the hope that they bring to me.

I feel much better now.

I needed to do this.

So, if you were bored, sorry.

I am hoping that it will remind you to stop and look around and count your blessings.

We all have much to be thankful for.

(sorry the spaciness and weird picture placement of this post. Blogger was being way too difficult for me to deal with)
