Five Minute Friday


“Count your many blessings name them one by one…”

There are so many blessings to count if I will only look for them.

A few years ago I heard that Oprah, of all people, started each day by writing out three things she was thankful for, so I began to do it myself. It’s amazing what looking for just a few things to be thankful for can do to your attitude, even on the hardest days.

Today, I am blessed…

…with three energetic boys who keep me on my knees.

…with a husband who loves me to the moon and back.

…with a job that I love.

…with friends whom I can depend on.

…with a family who love me and live close.

…with enough.

…with a quiet time place to sit at that makes my heart sing.

..with a gentle rain this morning in June in Oklahoma.

…with watermelon plants just beginning to sprout.

…with warm coffee on my desk.
