Count your blessings. A simple statement but try doing it in the midst of depression or disappointment and it will change your mood. Frustrated or tired ? Sad or angry? Counting your blessings can be the easiest way to make your day better.
I am so blessed to have a loving and supportive husband in Jason. I cannot say enough about him. He is a good provider, a great friend, and definitely the best man for me. He is a spiritual leader and one day will be a great dad.
My family is the best. My parents are loving to us and deeply love each other. My Grandparents would do anything for our family. My brothers and sister in-laws are such good friends to us and so supportive during every turn life has taken us. My aunts and uncles are kind and generous. My cousins are some of my best friends.
Our friends are some of the best people around. Their care and support during our adoption process has made me a better person.
These are just a few blessings I have counted in the past couple days and just acknowledging them on paper or out loud has made each day better. I challenge you to count your blessings today, whether small or big they will help you realize how much you have to be grateful for even in the worst of situations.
