My Blessings Abound....

This week.....I was so very excited to open my mailbox...and see that my faithful mailman had delivered to me Our Family Portraits.....that we had taken a few weeks ago by THIS amazing Photographer.


As I sat and viewed them all again....it brought home to me....how so very blessed I am in my life....even on those days...where I feel like I'm getting the short end of the stick....or that the stars have aligned against me....


I don't really share too much on here about my faith...spiritual beliefs...or religious affirmations...but I do in my daily life...feel that God, though he has challenged me in so many ways...which have tested my convictions and faith....has in turn given me gifts that are truly beyond measure....


















What are you happy and excited and feeling blessed about this week?

Beautiful pics! Thanks for sharing.

Honestly, this week, I'm just feeling blessed that the little one has finally gotten over the fever she's had the last 4 days. At one point it was 103.7 - scary night.

Everyone is back to normal, happy and healthy - heading to the pumpkin patch this weekend. :)

As I scrolled down through the pictures at each new one I would think to myself "aww, that one is my fave," only to think the same thing at the next picture. So, I guess they are all my favorite.

I am feeling blessed to have the opportunity to stay home with my daughter. Even though I feel like I am going crazy sometimes, I can't imagine trading peanut butter covered faces, and paint stained hands for anything.

Oh, and thanks for making me feel better about my new bag. I think you probably are the best person I know to talk about it because of your past in fashion and your present as a stay at home mommy. :)

I feel happy that I have life and another day to "get it right."

I have family, friends, a man that loves me, food, gas, a roof over my head and a fantastic group of female bloggers with which to socialize and support with comment love.

I'm blessed. Aren't we all?

Wow, those are amazing pictures!

I know I am blessed, but today I am having a particularly difficult time appreciating it so I'll just settle for being grateful for my family-without them I would have nothing.

Those pictures so make me miss when my guys were little like that! What am feeling blessed about this week? That God has given me time to spend with my sons, back in our hometown from where we just moved, the opportunity to laugh with friends over dinner, and spend time over dinner at my favorite restaurant with my son and his lovely wife. To see my other boys laughing with their BFFs they left behind. I just feel blessed to feel this peace and a heap of JOY!

Great pictures! You have a beautiful family.

Blessed that I have a job I enjoy and that I can bring some income to our family but still have time with my kids!

Beautiful pics!!! Your family is adorable!

Michaela said...

Those are beautiful, but then again so is your family!! I can't believe how big your little man is getting. It's just crazy to see how much he has changed since I first "met" you. He's no longer the little baby that he was months and months ago!
