Everyday one of my 3 children bring happiness to my world. I am helped by them, encouraged by them and given honor by them too. In my daily prayers, I am thankful for the blessings of my 3 children in my live. Even though they are all grown up and have their own lives to live, they include me and think of me in many ways.
I have worn reading corrective lens for 20 years. I am not able to have the laser surgery to correct my eye sight due to the condition of my eye sight. There is never a day that goes by that I am thankful for the fact that I can see with glasses. My blessing of having eye sight is reflected on often.
Many of my friends complain about not being able to remember important things. I am thankful that my blessings include a great memory. When I lay my glasses down and then go do some other chore, I sometimes have to retrace my steps to discover where I left my glasses. I would not be able to do that if I had a bad memory.
I once was very close to friends who lived a distance from me. On an occasion I discovered a bad trait about one of those friends. I could no longer accept that trait and unfortunately had to sever my friendship with all the parties, not just the one with the hurtful trait. True friends are a blessing and we get to chose the people we want to be in our lives.
When I recently was ill with pneumonia, I discovered how important I was to many people at my church. I was called so people could check on me , cards were sent and phone calls asking if I needed anything during my extended illness. One friend brought me flowers and I counted many blessings from my church family
