Counting My Blessings

My husband and I are getting a way for a couple of days.
I am so looking forward to hours in the car.
He and I just focusing on each other.
Talking about the past.
Dreaming about the future.
Celebrating the present.

We haven't even left yet and I am already so very thankful.

It has been such a blessing for me to sit on Sunday evenings and think about the week we have just been through. I try to recall every moment. Every blessing. Every struggle.

So today I join Ann from A Holy Experience and the Gratitude community. . .

We were just talking in church yesterday about how gratitude in suffering or difficulty completely changes your perspective. Thanks for the reminder, Amy!!
