Count Your Blessings Monday (3/17)


"I am giving us an opportunity every Monday to not only count our blessings, but to share them with others. This is a way that we can encourage one another. Make a post on your blog telling us about your blessing. Please put a link back to this post (on her blog). You can add the URL of your blog post on Mr. Linky below. Many of our blessings we will have pictures of and we can share those as well. I think that many times we forget that it is a blessing to be able to breath, to get out of bed, to hold a baby... Share your blessings with us. They encourage others. We can share so many other things.... special gifts, recipes, let's take the time to share how God has blessed us!! -Marci"

Well, I feel terrible that I haven't taken time to take part of this time to share. Most of you know of the saga of the various illnesses that "plagued" our home for almost 2 months. As of right now, we are illness free (besides typical allergies). I am so grateful for this time that I have with my children.....that they are healthy! ;o) Sweet E's birthday is next Monday and as long as I remember to give them their vitamins and such all should go as planned for her special day. With the whole family struggling this past month or so I have had to rely a lot on the Lord. A lot more than I normally do. We were blessed to have two men from our church come to our home a week and a half ago (or so) and pray for our family. We are VERY grateful for them taking the time to do so and that the Lord has blessed us with good health once again. Now....we just need to build up our immune systems. :o) So, not a long post for Count your Blessings Monday, but I just wanted to share how grateful I am to our Lord for the blessing of Good health. :D(And the fact that they children can be sent outside to play now is also a bonus. :o)

Good health is something we often take for granted. When you have a long time of illness and have lots of little ones like you do, it is very hard. I am glad you are all better now. STAY THAT WAY!!! =) Thanks for taking part.

I am so happy that you are all feeling better. I'm sure the children are all happy to be playing outside again! xo It's a huge blessing to have such caring members of your church family, as well. You are so fortunate to have that gift of fellowship.

It is so good to hear that y'all are all feeling better, and the children are outside playing. That cabin fever can get the best of them that's for sure. Thank the Lord for Good Health!!
