So very blessed ~

I know I am.
Amazingly and abundantly....
and beyond measure!

Sometimes this fact eludes me and I have a big ol' pity party.
Just me thinking, "why don't we have this...
and why don't we have that"...

That's just STUFF!

So, what are your blessings???
Think of them now.

Mine are my precious family.
My mama and daddy who are still healthy and loving life...
And my hubby's parents who are the same!!!
They truly are our inspiration.
My mom and dad:

A sweet husband who loves me through all my faults
for over 30 years now ~

Five precious sons that I was gifted with.
I truly feel as each one was such a gift!
They are all amazing men now and I am so, so very proud
of each and every one of them.

And now our cup runneth over ~
We have TWO precious grand babies!!!
How beautiful is THAT?
Our little Clara and Murray and their mama Emily,
Brent's wife. Who, by the way is such an amazing mama
to these babies....she loves them like breath itself.

Also...I have so many dear friends that I've made over the years ~
Some in school...some in college...and through work...
and now through blogging.

Over the years you all have become so dear to me!
Even if we lose contact for awhile I know
that you are always, always my friend.

So today is a day of thanks...
thank you Lord for my precious family and friends.
You all are my gift in this life.

A thankful heart is a happy heart ~
let's all always,
count our blessings.

hugs and love,

Oh Dear Dawn such a special post with true love and meaning.
Dorthe took the words right out of my mouth. I couldn't have said it better.

Dear Dawn, You are a blessing to all of us. Kind and generous, helpful and supportive. The world needs more people with grateful hearts. You are rich beyond measure, and though I am not an envious person, I so wish I still had my Mom with me. Give your Momma a big old hug from me next time you see her. Tell Mom she did a great job raising you! Love, Penny
