Do You Know How Blessed You Are?

~~~~~~~~~~

Do you see your blessings? I confess that sometimes I do not. Sometimes I take things for granted that I really shouldn't. 


  • A home of our own for our family
  • A van to drive (even if it feels like we need 2*)
  • Water to drink (even if it's carried in gallon jugs)
  • I have my family all in one town.
  • I have several outfits as do each of my children and my husband.
  • I have my own washer and dryer. That wasn't always the case.
Oh the list could go on and on and on. Jo at Finding Joy in the Everyday wrote an excellent article about just how blessed most of us are. It's Counting Your Blessings.

A Little More on Our Blessings shares some grim facts about how blessed women are to live in a free country like Australia or America.

Do drop by and read these excellent articles. Jo has some beautiful insight, has done some research, and also writes a lovely blog.

Happy Today!

  4. I am very blessed and it's great to be reminded to! It's important not to take everything for granted, after all this is just our temporary home...We should enjoy all the little things and cherish all that we have been given. Being thankful is a plus too!
    I hope you have a great week, Laura!
    Hugs, Amy

    Blessings. :-)

  8. What a lovely post! It is so good to be content with what the Lord gives us. One of my favorite blessings is a hot shower/bath - thank you, LORD!

    Your autumn background is so happy looking!
