Seeing the Blessings and Being Thankful

As my day began this morning, I was thinking about blessings . . . big and small, and I most certainly have many! I have an amazing husband (we met on a volcano!!!), two grown children I love and am proud of and a lovely daughter-in-law. Three sweet, rascal grandsons who fill my heart with joy! Yes, my blessings are many and I am ever so thankful!

I have also been blessed to have wonderful parents, to have been able to grow up knowing and spending time with my grandparents and to have an incredible sister and three brothers - and memories which come with two older sisters tormenting their three younger brothers!

Plus, I have a church where I'm blessed to be able to volunteer, a ministry which I believe in with all my heart (Legacy Coalition) and am so blessed to be part of and the gift of wonderful friends.

My blessings are not measured by dollars . . . they are far more valuable. They are gifts from the hand of God . . . which reminds me of my greatest blessing - being able to know the love of God and loving Him back.

I am most blessed and ever so thankful!

And, if we all open our eyes and look around us we will find we are all most blessed - and have much to be thankful for. This is something I plan to focus on with my grandsons this summer as I want them to grow up to be people who have eyes which are open to see God's many blessings - big and small - and who have truly thankful hearts!
