Counting our blessings

There are days when the sun doesn’t shine enough, and there are days when life doesn’t seem fair, or doesn’t feel right enough or pretty enough… I know. I too have felt that way many a time. But when I look around me I soon realize that there are others out there less fortunate than I. Life becomes so very precious to me then. Have you thought lately about how lucky you are to be alive? I don’t want to wonder through life with a thick cloud of fog covering my eyes, do you? I know you don’t. Let’s do something then… let's look around us and appreciate the moments and things that we have in the time of the present… And that include the people we love! I’m counting you among my blessings! ;)
These are just a few things around me this very moment that make me happy…
Be Peaceful.
Float Away.
Have a most beautiful weekend
my sweet friends!

  1. Beautfiul pictures. When get sad I do take a look at what I do have and be very grateful for them. Most important is the people in our lives.

  5. Hi Cielo!
    You're right, sometimes we don't appreciate what we have.
    I love your flowers, your clothes and your capuccino!
    Have a nice weekend!
    Love from Spain.

  6. Whe you drive into my drive way it is steep and down in. We always say we left life behind in the driveway. I love your linens and tea cup. It is time we all give thanks for what ever we have no matter how small.

  12. Hello Cielo,
    I understand completely - I have a tendency to be a melancholy person - I need to be more aware of it when I am - God has blessed my life beyond measure - I am so thankful for His love and his gift of Salvation - I am thankful for my Dearest Husband - for my three Darling children - for my family, my friends - my health - a place to live, food to eat -
    I don't have joy in my life because of the absence of tragedy - my life has had its share - maybe more - I have joy because I have complete faith and trust in God.
    I appreciate you and your precious blog - you've brought joy and happiness to many - may God richly bless you in return,
    Kathy
