Everyday blessings of God

Yesterday I walked to my granddaughter’s house to drop off a jar of creamy peanut butter. When the door opened, my greatgrandson saw me, threw his arms out wide, and exclaimed “Mimi”. I remember when my granddaughter was that age. Whenever she saw me, she would throw her arms out wide and exclaim “Mimi”.

I realized how blessed I am to have this love and admiration twice in a lifetime.

Each morning I thank the Lord for 10 things. I use my fingers to count, and more times than not, have to count my fingers twice. The blessing of the Lord flow into everyday things: a warm house, good health, a sound mind, a car to drive. And don’t overlook the blessings of God’s love, His guidance, His constant care, a listening ear, a kind heart, and hope.
