Sometimes, you just have to count your blessings. Sometimes, you especially have to count your blessings when you don’t feel like you have any. Sometimes I don’t feel like I have any or I don’t feel like I have the right blessings and it reminds me why it’s so important to focus on the good gifts God gives us instead of on the things He doesn’t.

So without further ado – gifts 61-70

61. Good friends

62. A swiffer

63. A husband who calls me on his way home from work and says “I’m stopping at McDonald’s do you want anything?” at almost the same time you are craving something sweet but have eaten most of the sweet things in the home.
