I have a cross stitch that I did many years ago hanging on my wall saying ‘Count your blessings’.

There are times yes I ‘don’t’ see it…..other times I do. Sad in a way as I Should see it and count my blessings each day.

Now you wonder……are there that many in a day?? Yes there are!!! You are awake right? That is a blessing….means you are alive and can go on with your day. You you walk into your kitchen…put the coffee on…..start you breakfast there is another.

As you pour that coffee you think….grass needs cutting….windows need cleaning……that too is a blessing……you have a home. See there is another…..

As the day goes by you find other ones…..kids come home from school……start grumbling that you have asked them to help……that is a blessing…….they could be roaming the streets.

Hubby comes home…..plants himself in the recliner…….that is a blessing…….he could be sitting in a bar……

You grumble paying the bills……..it’s a blessing…….you have power, heat and water…….

You look around…..you see the mess……count your blessing that there is one…….shows you had fun with family and friends……

You crawl into bed to rest those weary achy muscles…..means you are healthy and capable of working, playing hard etc……see there is another……

I’m sure you can find more…..I did……

Keep counting your Blessings.
