I’m Blessed

I have a list of some big things, and some small things that gather together into big things.

This morning I surrounded by little ones in footie pajamas with crazy hair and hypnotizing smiles.

What can I say?  I’m blessed.

Yesterday our family got to relax with friends.  You know, the kind of friends where your family can be their crazy selves and you don’t have to apologize.

My husband has coffee ready for me when I wake up in the morning.  I’m spoiled.

I have a song stuck in my head from church yesterday.  It’s a wonderful song to have stuck in your head, and may just make my Monday:

Jesus paid it all.
All to Him I owe.
Sin had left a crimson stain
He washed it white as snow.

I’m so blessed.

As always, if you want to join in by sharing how God has blessed you this last week, leave a comment!  I you have a blog and want to join the blog party, write a post on blessings, make sure there is a link to this blog in there so people can read more (you can use the I’m Blessed button I have on the right hand side of this blog if that’s easier for you), and leave your blog post address below.  It’s really pretty simple.  Thank you so much to those who participate each week.

    I’m sorry I never comment (I’ve been following your blog for a while now) but I always feel a bit shy. Um anyway I wanted to say thank you for sharing your life and blessings, I think its very brave to be so open and honest about things dear to your heart. I have been enjoying following your story and its been helpful as I am expecting my first child very soon (next month eek!) and I’ve been nervous about parenting and the choices I’ll have to make along the way. Thanks Gretchen for being such a reassuring voice for me to read :)
