I am finding this journey of counting my blessing to be both more difficult and more rewarding than I had expected. Difficult, not because I lack blessings, but because I forget to look and do not always recognize them in the moment. Rewarding as I am filled with a fresh wonder at how very blessed I truly am.

Blessings 43 - 49

- Discovering Kindle for PC (free app) and free downloadable books

-Leota's Garden by Francine Rivers (one of the free ebooks I downloaded and then stayed up way too late reading)

- Planting garden with my family during warmer days last week - beets, carrots, and peas - and dreaming of how tasty they will be.

- Quiet Sunday's when I can write, read and create to my heart's content.

- a nice evening walk with my kids as we become familiar with our new neighborhood

- salt and vinegar chips

- looking at the snow outside and knowing that it is winter's last hurrah, and warmer days will return.


  1. So funny you mention the Kindle app for the computer... we got this as well yesterday! My husband pointed out the Francine Rivers book, too. I'm glad to hear you like it.

    I've never been to your blog before -- looks like I will stay and look around a while. I'm going to follow you via Google friend connect!


  2. love that francine rivers book! it is wonderful. we, too are watching winter ebb away and eagerly awaiting spring for warmer days.

    here from ann's ... keep at it! counting your gifts, i mean. it is so worth it. even if you stumble for a week (or more in my case!)and don't post.
