Counting My Blessings One By One


I want to wish each and every person who has taken the time to read my blog a Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving today.  I am grateful for so many things in my life.  I am thankful to God that I have a husband who loves me beyond all measure.  And not only does he love me but he loves my two children and our child and makes no distinction between them.  We are all healthy, our children are all intelligent and beautiful children inside and out.  We might not have much money, but we are truly rich.  In all of the ways that really matter.  Things aren’t always perfect around here, but at the end of the day we are a family and we make it through the rough times together.  I hope my children know that my love for them is never ending and that I am and will always be their biggest advocate and that their will never be another human being on this earth who wants the absolute best for them more than I do.  If they know that in their hearts that is all that really matters, isn’t it?  I didn’t always feel this way, but now I know in my heart that God blessed the broken road that led me straight to where I am right now. 
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  Take a little time today to reflect on everything that you are grateful for, and take note of all of the blessings in your life.  If you start counting, I am sure there are many. 
Since Christmas decorating will officially be in full swing starting this weekend, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite fall scenes and decor from  with you today.  Enjoy!
