One, two, three, four...


Sometimes it's hard to remember to count my blessings; sometimes troubles, annoyances, problems, fears and worries multiply and simply crowd them out. Sometimes I don't look inside my mug and see the reminder; sometimes I hold it with my left hand and the reminder is hidden from me. And, other times, I'm drinking my coffee too fast to see what's right under my nose.

Blessing number one: work I love.

Blessing number two: pretty things to work with.

Blessing number three: a quiet place in which to work; a place that has been arranged by me to suit me.

Blessing number four: A sweet friend who always reminds me to look for what's good in life instead of letting the bad overwhelm me - even when she's not actually trying to remind me, she does it by example.

Thank you, Nancy.

You do this same thing for me all the time, every time we talk. And I am in tears your post meant so much to me. Today was a very down day - and I am so grateful to you for saying I helped you.

Talking to you always helps, Nancy. And today, you helped even before we talked!

Lovely post, Cynthia! And may I say that both you and Nancy are constant reminders to me of the "wonderfulness" in people, and knowing you is surely among the blessings I can count!

I thank the Lord for my blessings, every day. For my family, friends who mean so much to me and help in ways they are unaware. I would love the mug for a more constand reminder! Thanks for the beautiful blog, Cynthia. <3
