What am I worrying about?

Happy Friday Everyone!What in the world am I fretting about? So my kids are growing up! So I have a little more time on my hands! My days continue to be rich and blessed. If you are fretting, make a list of all the joys in your other words count your blessings! That is what I did and it made me feel soooo much better (not to mention all of the wonderful affirming comments from bloggers and friends!)
Here are a few of mine from this week:
  • Spent a day on the farm with 60 first graders, including mine (above).
  • Participated in a mini relay for life where our school raised more than $4,000 for cancer research. I look forward to the official Relay-For-Life this weekend.
  • Was able to visit a place where I felt the Spirit so strongly tears sprang from my eyes.
  • Helped out a friend in need by working for her two days this week. A bonus was surrounding myself with 20 amazing 7 year olds.
  • My husband offering to take us out to Costco Food Court for dinner, just because he knew I worked hard that day. Dinner for 4 for $9 and no cooking. Now that IS a blessing!
  • Being able to visit with four different women. Sharing their burdens and lightening not only their load, but mine as well.
  • Hanging out at a baby shower with friends, chit chatting.
  • Partaking of the sacrament.
  • The fish are still ALIVE!

I hope when you are feeling bummed, like I was here, you will 1. Reach out for support and 2. Count your blessings. Have a great weekend! ♥ Jen
