welcome friends.....thanks for popping in my world....
I'd love to know you've stopped by, so please note that the comment section is now found at the title of each post.

Count your blessings!

So this morning, I woke up to my obnoxious rooster cockadoodling like a broken record who wouldn't shut up to the sounds of chirping birds outside my window. It just put a smile on my face and made me realize, once again.....how blessed I am.

So I thought I would just list ten random things that make me smile and thank God for (in no specific order)

  • everyone in my family is healthy, even with broken fingers, sunburns and poison ivy rashes today. (sums up what we were doing all weekend)
  • Josh and I started on a new garden bed so that we can have a better place to grow our veggies (hence the sunburn)
  • we have a gorgeous clean little stream way back on our property that E and N made a little "sinkhole" to cool off in, by creating a small dam with large rocks on one part (hence the broken finger)
  • we are clearing out some land to build a new chicken coop (hence the poison ivy)
  • I am raising my family out in the boonies, close enough to society.....yet far enough away from it at the same time (if that makes sense, lol)
  • we were doing school outside in the fresh air yesterday and plan on doing it today as well.
  • I have very special close friends that I can share where I found a deer tick on me (it was the size of this ".") and laugh about it with them (*shudder*)
  • I found $10 in my pocket, so we went out for ice cream last night
  • then ended the night watching a gorgeous sunset
  • I have Jesus Christ in me.
In this upside down world, where most worry/complain what they don't have, I encourage you to take 5 minutes today and count what blessings (no matter how simple) you do have.....and please share even just one thing with me!

p.s. Don't forget to enter my giveaway! Picking winner tomorrow~ :)

Peace and love~
