Counting Blessings

I have so much to be thankful for. A place to live, food on the table, faith, freedom, family, love.
There are so many things to think of and these are just a few.
Jayde and Hailey are (8 & 6) two of my biggest blessings ( along with younger sister Annika).

I love their honesty, their compassion at such an early age, and their insight into people.
They are generous with their spirits. I am blessed to be their grandma.
I also feel blessed by Sheila. She awarded me the Brillante Weblog. She has a lovely blog that you will enjoy visiting. Her spirit is generous as well, and talk about a big heart... That gal is the real deal. I told her it will take some time to pass the torch. I would love to give it to those who visit but I know that not everyone agrees with that.
While you go through your day, really take time to count your blessings.

Oh, I sooo know how blessed you feel when you look at a grandchild. I have the very same feelings and sometimes, it almost overwhelms me. How did I get to be the grandmother of such fine little people, I ask....Thank you, God, for choosing me !!
Yours are just precious!

Thank you so much about the reminder to count our blessings. It is so easy to get caught up in what we don't have instead of the many things God has given us. You have beautiful granddaughters. I know you must have so much fun with them. I'm so glad you are back.

Your girls are so precious. Tell that sweet Jayde that I saw her comment on my Disney artwork blog. Has she been drawing lately. Thanks so much, Barb, for you prayers for my dad. He is on his way home (2 1/2 hours away from me) and has a sweet lady friend looking after him. I am very thankful, but wishing (and praying) for his spiritual heart to be in the same shape as his physical is now.

Blessings,
Christi
