Count your blessings

For some reason I woke up this morning with this song (Count your blessings) running through my brain.  I love it so I wasn’t bothered by it.  But I just couldn’t figure out why today.

And then I heard singing, from our granddaughter and my husband, “Happy Birthday to you…”.  Oh, yea, it’s my birthday.  Blessing # 1 of the day.  The phone rings and it is our daughter, she is singing happy birthday to me.  Blessing # 2 of the day.

As I take our granddaughter Baylie to kindergarten, she reminds me that I need to be at the school at 10:15 for her picnic.   She knows grandma can get busy and “forget” many things, she didn’t want us to forget.  Blessing #3 for the day.  Picnic with her and her school buddies, blessing # 4.  My cell phone continues to vibrate on my hip, birthday wishes from facebook, blessing # 5.  Granddaughter #1, Alexis, who is our oldest grandchild, calls and sings me happy birthday, blessing # 6.  Hugs from our daughter-in-law with birthday wishes, blessing #7.  Reading birthday emails from my family and friends, blessing # 8.  And the list goes on.

Count your blessings, name them one by one, count your blessings, see what God has done; Count your blessings, name them one by one, Count your many blessings see what God has done!

I am a truly blessed and well loved person.  Thank you to everyone for your love, support and blessing me each and every day of my life!
