God has blessed me above and beyond anything I deserve. Sometimes I have days where I tend to forget those blessings. Today I have had a day where I have been able to reflect on and enjoy the blessings I have. I thought I would share a few of them.

1. I am blessed to have two beautiful and healthy daughters that are currently playing house under the dining room table and speaking Spanish to each other. Hannah calls Abigail "Mana" short for hermana.

2. I am blessed that my children can speak, hear, walk, are healthy etc.

3. I am blessed to have a husband that is sitting at Starbucks right now visiting with my handsome 6 year old son.

4. I am blessed to have to pick up toys all day - there are many kids that could only dream of having as many toys as we do.

5. I am blessed to get to go to the movies tonight with a really good friend of mine.

6. I am blessed to have a husband that will watch the kids for me so I can go to the movies.

7. I am blessed to be stressing over finding an elementary school for Josiah. The majority of children in Mexico that GET to go to school go to private schools. The ones in public school share the classroom with around 30 or more classmates. They only go to school for about 3 hours because they need the classroom for another class.

8. I am blessed that my parents came to see me a few weeks ago.

9. I am blessed that my in laws are coming to see me in a little over two months.

10. I am blessed to have a computer and be able to share my life with so many great friends and family literally all over the world.

Hey - Well, it is always good to be reminded that some things that seem crazy and hectic are indeed blessings. I was thinking last night...there are so many toys to pick up, Aspen to bathe, dishes to be done....etc..I know that I do these things however because we are blessed to have toys and to have a baby who can play with them. Good thoughts. Keep em coming. I need them! - Nan
