Thankful

Hey everyone! I hope you had a great weekend, and your week has started on a good note. I had a nice weekend. On Friday night, we had our friends round for games night, complete with pizza and lots of finger food. We had a blast and I won the games so I was chuffed. Didn't go to bed till past one in the morning! Saturday was more chilled out. Since I'm on a mission to lose weight by summer, I decided to go and check out the gym near my house. I was given a one-day membership voucher last week,so I put it to good use. I'm considering signing up. The only worry is that they will be swiping their money by DD out of my account every month. I hate direct debits! That's due to a few bad experiences while I was a student. LOL.

I'm counting my blessings this week. You know, it's easy to overlook what we have when we think of what we don't have yet. I had posted this previously, but I wanted to write it again, so I don't take a lot of things for granted. So here goes:

Today, I am alive. Today my husband is alive and healthy. We are together and happily married. Today I was able to hear my alarm and open my eyes. Today I was healthy enough to get out of bed. Today I was able to wash myself. Today I have a job to go to. Today I had a safe journey to work. Today a bomb did not go off in my city. Today I had money to buy lunch. I can even eat lunch! Today I didn't get sacked or laid off from work. Today I had a safe journey back home. I even have a home to go to. Today nobody in my family died. Today I did not have any accident or injury. Today my husband didn't lose his job. Today I enjoyed communicating with my friends and family. I have good people around me. Today I heard some good news. Today our house didn't catch fire. Today I am safe in the knowledge that I am God's child and He will never leave me or forsake me. Today I had angels watching over me. Today I can go to bed safely knowing that the angels are going to watch over me and my family as we sleep.

And to encourage you Buki I'm tagging you! Write down all the blessings you had in one day :-)

    Looks like I have no choice! LOL!!!

    We have a lot to be thankful for... sometimes we forget all what God continues to do for us... Thanks for this and this should be up tonight or tomorrow on my blog... Promise!

    FG, spring is here. Why don't you try running? It costs £0, you just have to own a good pair of trainers... Think about it.

  3. You are so right! It is so easy to overlook the things we think are little.

    **singing**
    COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS NAME THEM ONE BY ONE
    COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS SEE WHAT GOD HAS DONE
    COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS NAME THEM ONE BY ONE
    AND IT WILL SURPRISE YOU WGHAT THE LORD HAS DONE.
