Counting my blessings

"Gratitude is an opener of locked-up blessings."
-- Marianne Williamson
"Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don't unravel."
-- Unknown
"Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes of which all men have some."
-- Charles Dickens
"First of all that I would crave as the richest of heaven's blessings would be wisdom from my Heavenly Father bestowed daily."
-- Emma Hale Smith
"Some wish blessings, others pray for them. Some send blessings and they become one."
-- Joyce C. Lock
"There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from."
--Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
"The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings." -- Eric Hoffe
"Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love."
-- Hamilton Wright Mabie
When you wish someone joy, you wish them peace, love, prosperity, happiness…all the good things.
~Maya Angelou
The struggle of life is one of our greatest blessings. It makes us patient, sensitive, and Godlike. It teaches us that although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.
~Helen Keller

What a blessing it is to have a wonderful husband, loving children and oh so cute grand children.
