Counting blessings each week is a blessing in itself. I could easily revert back to remembering all of the difficulties and problems but instead I make the choice to treasure those everyday blessings. It's all a matter of what you focus on, isn't it?
Sometimes I need reminders. I get up very early in the morning to have my quiet time and to write. I really want to get my exercise in too. But I have to admit there are days when I miss out.
At our school the children have PE twice a week. It is so cute to see three year old children learning how to do jumping jacks and to skip and gallop. They have many opportunities to exercise and to simply play.
While the other children were following directions, little Will was doing his own thing. I had to laugh!

I learn so much from little children. How often do we adults get to play? Life seems so serious. Yes, we have responsibilities but I think it's important to take some time to simply enjoy life.
My husband and I are both learning this from my work. I wrote a blog post on Saturday entitled It's All Grace. In case you missed it, you can read it here. I shared a bit about my journey that God has taken me on to learn many important lessons.
In the meantime, I continue to count my blessings and to link up with Ann of A Holy Experience.
Blessings and love,
