"count your many blessings, name them one by one"

As I was preparing for a dinner party last Saturday I stopped and was grateful for sun streaming in through the window. So I decided to take this picture.
Then I began to think about all of the things that I am grateful for and "wahlah" this post came to be!
I encourage you to pause at the little things and "count your blessings, name them one by one. Count your many blessings see what God hath done."
  • my Savior, Jesus Christ
  • my hubby, and all that comes with him
  • my daughter who has been teaching me since the day she was born
  • my son and the noble character he shows me daily
  • the plan of salvation, where all of the above can be with me for eternity
  • our jobs- we no longer take them for granted
  • my parents- they continue to guide me to this day
  • my siblings- I've learned so much from them from such a young age
  • my nieces and nephews- near or far
  • my family members who've passed on- I know they protect my family each day
  • my friends- without them I may not get out of bed on some days
  • my home
  • my health- I try never to take this for granted either
  • living in the United States of America- we may dwell on the negative, but we still live in the greatest country there is!

The list goes on and on, but these are the necessities that guide my life each and everyday!
