I live a blessed life.
It is something I try to remind myself of all the time.
I love a line of a church hymn that I sing to myself often:
'Count your blessings, name them one by one,
and it will surprise what the Lord has done.'
Today I am grateful for:
1. Rain - this week I did some more planting in our garden and I am grateful for this downpour to help them settle and grow. Saving me time, money and water.
2. Birthdays - today is my daughters 7th birthday and it is wonderful to 'give' her some special gifts that I know she has been wanting. I love to see the children's face light up with excitement as they open their presents and delight in what I have chosen just for them.
3. Friends - for the opportunity to go out and to chat about the mundane things of life. To share experiences, feelings and difficulties. To enjoy laughter, smiles and chocolate cake!
4. Giggles - watching my children play games. To see the excitement building as they pass the parcel, dance to music and overload on sugar!
We are in party mode today. Cake, balloons, games.
