I could cry and be depressed that my friend and neighbor is no longer here. I choose to count my blessings. I am blessed that I had such a loving, caring neighbor. I am blessed that we made such wonderful memories. I am blessed that she and I were able to talk so freely about dying, God, heaven and faith. I am blessed to have a special angel watching over me. I am blessed that Fran's friendship brought friends from all over the world together in thoughts and prayers. I am blessed for the love you showed to Fran with the cards and letters. I am blessed that you donated to the hospice in Fran's memory.(Fran age 16)
I could have a pity party because I live so far from my children and grandchildren. I will instead count my blessings. I am blessed to have 3 beautiful, smart, caring daughters. I am blessed to have 9 absolutely wonderful grandchildren. I am blessed knowing summer will bring the grands to the homestead to spend time with grandma. I am blessed that I have "kids" running around the homestead that make me smile. I am blessed that I have new babies on the homestead. To help deliver a baby goat. To watch newly hatched goslings peeking out from under their mom at the great big world waiting for them
I am blessed momma goose didn't bite me!
There are alot of rocky roads and burdens in life but God doesn't let me face them alone. He always gives me many blessings to get through the rough times. Then gives me many more blessings for getting past the rocky road. I am going to stop worrying and stressing. I am going to stop, smell the flowers and count my blessings. The only problem is I have too many blessings to count!
