Counting my blessings.

Lately I’ve been pretty down in the dumps. Nothing terrible has happened. I know that my self pity party is unwarranted. I know that I have a pretty cushy life….. so, today, I think I need to count my blessings so that I can remind myself what they are.



1. I have an amazing husband who: does dishes and laundry, takes care of the animals, cleans the house in his free time, loves me and can’t wait to get the baby train going again.

2. I have a family that is very strong and supportive, even when they’re being a big pain in the booty.

3. I own a house. With nice things inside.

4. Both the Hubs and I have decent cars that are dependable (knock on wood…. Like all of it that I have in sight)

5. I work at a pretty cushy job. I get paid a decent salary, and I usually am not too busy so I get to spend some QT with my Google reader and my Nesties.

6. I’m not constantly afraid that I will lose my job, like so many other people in the world.

7. I’m (relatively) healthy.

8. The Hubs is healthy (and so are his sperm.)

9. I have a puppy and a kitty that provide me with unconditional love, and are always happy to see me.

10. I have a DVR and a library card.



So I want to ask all of you…. What are you blessed with?

That is an awesome thing to do. Write out our blessings and literally count them one by one. We are so blessed and sometimes we need to acknowledge that. It is still hard when we are down in the dumps though. I will have to post one with my blessings too :D You have inspired me!!

Hey- thanks for commenting on my blog! I actually occasionally check in with Jen's blog but thank you for reminding me! I will add her to my blogroll.

I like your blessings list. I should make one too so when I have one of those days where I'm just feeling down I can look back at it.

Hope your day improved!

What are my blessings? My blessings are a roof over my head, a good sense of humor, the occassional burrito supreme, and new gooey feelings in my tummy.
