I chose the name of my blog because I felt that I had been given so many blessings that they were just overflowing. (I still feel that way.) I have been doing these Gratituesday posts for a few weeks and I feel like a broken record. However, I think that it is good for me to focus each week on how God has blessed me.
I first want to say that I am so grateful to have parents who raised me to know God. I can’t imagine how I would have been able to get through the low spots if I didn’t have faith.
I am also grateful for my family. I can’t imagine going through this life alone. I think that the experiences we have that seem to weigh us down (sadness, loss, anger, stress, hurt, etc.) should make us appreciate the blessings even more. It can be so hard to look for the good in spite of the bad, but I don’t think I could make it if I didn’t try to stay positive.
But, how can I not be positive when I am surrounded by these 4 children? I think this photo captures their personalities pretty well. They each are so different and I am thankful for each one.
