Count your Blessings

I have been stressed, feeling over worked and just tired in general. Little things have been happening to make me stress out even more on a daily base it seems. Even with all this going on I feel I just really need to write down a few of my blessings.

** The Gospel!!! I cant tell you how many times I have been so overwhelmed lately that I had to just stop and drop to my knees in prayer, and have been uplifted and felt Heavenly Fathers love for me. My problem's didn't disappear but they where for sure made much easier for me to handle. I am so grateful for the Gospel in my life and knowing the things I know now. I'm grateful to have it be a part of my everyday life. I'm SO grateful that my children have the chance to grow in the church. I am VERY grateful for the plan of salvation and for Temple work and the knowledge I get to be with my family for all time and eternity.

** My Husband!! Mick is the most amazing Husband and Father. He is always so supportive me, very understanding and one of the most unselfish people I know. He works so hard to provide for us and shows his love for us everyday. I can never say I don't feel loved by him. I am so grateful I get to keep him forever!

** My Son!! Justin is just getting so big that i now tear up when I see his baby pics and remember the days of him being little. I love his sweet personality and is sweet innocence. I love watching him learn new things and get excited to try new adventures. I LOVE the fact that school is fun for him and he likes to do Math for fun when he is board. I love his goofy side, the other night he asked me to turn on his fan on high. I told him no because is was cold out and he didn't need it. He looked up at me and said "Mom you know I'm just going to get up and turn it on when you shut the door". I couldn't help but crack up at that and he had a huge grin across his face too. So I had to turn on the fan then hehehe.

** My Daughter!! This girl is growing by leaps and bounds these days it seems. I cant believe she is going to be a kindergartner is just 9 months. She is so smart and loves to learn, she understands how important friends and family are and express how much she loves them so often it just makes my heart melt. I love her love of simple things and, her love of shopping for shoes and cloths. How often do you get to hear a parents say they love to take their 4 year old cloths shopping with them hehehe. She is a strong young lady all ready and I hope she keeps that as she grows up. I also hope she keeps her goofy side, she loves to play jokes on Me, Justin and Mick and I have to admit most of the time she gets us and we all end up on the floor laughing.

** Good Friends!!! this is a BIG one for me. We don't have any family close by and some times feel very alone and over whelmed cause we don't have family to ask for help. Luckily for us we have the most amazing friends and just about all of them feel more like family then most of our really family does. With out my friends I don't know how I would make it through the day sometimes. I am very grateful for my friends, you guys mean allot to me and I hope you all know how much you are loved.

** My car!! OK I know that sounds silly but its so true. There has not been a day since we got my truck that I have not felt grateful for it. Mick and I went 10 years with 1 car between the 2 of us. We have never had 2 cars at one time. OK i take that back we did for 3 months one time. Anyways this car feels like such a big blessing every time I get in it. I'm grateful to have a dependable car for my family to travel in, I'm grateful for the room it has and the fact I don't have to play Tetris with the trunk every time I go to Costco hehehe.

OK so that is just a few of my blessings. I know this is a different post then what I normally put on here but I have just been feeling so blessed lately i had to share.
