Little Blessings

Have you ever thought about all the times in life that you are blessed?  Sometimes a blessing doesn’t have to come in the form of a huge financial gift, or even an answer that you were waiting for.  Sometimes the biggest blessings in life are actually in the form of small, seemingly “normal” things in everyday life.  I looked up the word blessing and I think my favorite definition is this one…

Blessing (noun):  A favor or gift bestowed by God, thereby bringing happiness

Wow, that kind of widens the extent of things that we might call “blessings”!  So, here are a few of the blessings that I have had in the past weeks.  

A clear, beautiful view of God's work.

Great friends (or family...) to act crazy with!

Sisters  =)

A sunset that is 300% better in real life.

This little miracle.

This little one's curiosity about life.

Their excitement over muffins!

His paws.  =)

His hair!

The fact that I FINALLY got this picture!


The fact that he is 3.5 years old and wears 12months pants...

His giggle

The hope that he has, even in his situations.

His smile.

This brat.

Remember to look for even the smallest blessings in life, there are a ton more out there than you might think!!
