I have been Blessed

I find myself singing the lyrics to Martina McBride lately:

I get kissed by the sun
Each morning
Put my feet on a hardwood floor
I get to hear my children laughing
Down the hall through the
Bedroom door
Sometimes I sit on my
Front porch swing
Just soaking up the day
I think to myself, I think to myself
This world is a beautiful place

I have been blessed
And I feel like I’ve found my way
I thank God for all I’ve been given
At the end of every day
I have been blessed
With so much more than I deserve
To be here with the ones
That love me
To love them so much it hurts

I have been blessed

Across a crowded room,
I know you know what I’m thinking
By the way I look at you
And when we’re lying in the quiet and
No words have to be said
I think to myself, I think to myself
This love is a beautiful gift

When I’m singing my kids to sleep
When I feel you holding me
I know

I have been blessed.

I know that blessings come usually after much triall and I am so thankful to be out of our most recent ones.  I know that there is a very loving Father in Heaven who teaches and blesses us- each in a very unique way.   I am grateful for his GRACE that carried me through the past 10 months of hardship and confusion.  Living out of a suitcase and letting go of our dream job humbled and taught me so much.

“You can complain because roses have thorns or you can rejoice in the thought that thorns have roses.”
