Counting My Blessings

by Jesse on May 8, 2011

Do you often stop and think how truly blessed you are? I think it is so easy to get caught up in what is next on the list of achievements to accomplish that we might over look all we have. As I looked over the photos taken over our Mother’s Day weekend my heart was warmed by the sweet smiling faces I am blessed to call my family. We have so much fun together!

We had a picnic.

Gussied up some hats for Blair and I to wear as we watched the Derby.

and made a yummy dessert.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend enjoying your little blessings.

Hugs my friends.

As always….LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your pics and mostly you and Blair wearing the Derby hats. It made me want to plan a trip for next year to Louisville to visit my son during the KY Derby. Would be so fun to see all the different hats!

I agree. I don’t count my blessings often enough and many days I find myself instead, concentrating on my frustrations (which are so miniscule in comparison to my blessings!) What a great reminder!
