Thirteen Ways I Am Blessed Beyond Measure

1. The face above is what greets me each morning.
2. I have a daughter who invites me to tea parties and likes to sit and draw with me.
3. I have a son who asks me to go outside and play catch with him and doesn’t say I throw like a girl (because I don’t).
4. I have another son who is a fellow geek wannabe and likes to stay up late and discuss HTML, and other interesting stuff.
5. The Lord, in his infinite mercy, has entrusted us with 8 amazing children who enrich my life more than I could ever describe.
6. I have wonderful neighbors who look out for me and my kids. You can’t say enough about good neighbors.
7. I have a husband who changes diapers, gives baths, puts the kids to bed, and can fix just about anything. Oh, and he looks at me like he did when he met me at 18 years old, after 22 years together and birthing 8 of his children.
8. I am blessed with a very special church family. The women are sisters in Christ, sisters of the heart, and my very best friends, supporters, and encouragers.
9. I have always had a close-knit family – parents, grandparents, sister, aunts, cousins – who love me, my husband, and my children. I have strong roots in the church and priceless family treasures, such as my great grandmother’s hand-sewn quilts.
10. I live in the day of heating and air-conditioning, automobiles, refrigeration, washers and dryers, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and cosmetics.
11. I am American by birth, and Southern by the grace of God.
12. I have a Lord and Savior who gave his life for me and loves me unconditionally. Because of this, I live a life of joy, purpose, with the hope of reuniting with my loved ones in heaven.
13. I have my own bathroom (well, I share it with my husband). This is something I truly appreciate!
