Counting My Blessings

Posted By Jessica Fisher On April 7, 2009 @ 2:07 pm In FishFam,GOD,Parenting and Family | 10 Comments

I seem to have been in a funk lately. A little hormonal. A little out of sorts. Last night I was wracking my brain trying to figure a way out. The thought came to me to write out a list of I’m thankful for’s. While this doesn’t necessary solve every ill in the world, it is certainly a great reminder to me of how good God is and that He cares for me and mine.

God has blessed me this past week with:

1. My mom [5] who makes it a priority to brave the traffic to spend time with us, to spoil us, to love on my children. I love to make her laugh.

2. A great dermatologist who I really connected with and who was able to discern some of the causes of FishBaby’s eczema and prescribe a treatment that appears to be working.

3. A new “donut machine [6]

4. A tax refund

5. An old vehicle that continues to run despite its age and various maladies.

6. My husband [7] who cheerfully washes dishes, changes diapers, and apologizes to me when he gets called into work at 8 pm on Sunday night for an emergency. Rather than grumble about the inconvenience to him, he is concerned about the inconvenience to me.

7. Asian Chicken and Noodle salad [8]

8. 6 healthy and bright children

9. My 6-year old who asked, “Mama, are Bibles more expensive than other books? Because I think that since it’s God’s Word and it’s so important, that it should be more expensive.

10. God’s Word – how easy it is to take for granted something so easily obtained, which, in reality, has been quite costly [9]to many people over the centuries.
