I am SO Blessed

Blessed - sung by Martina McBride

I get kissed by the sun each mornin'
Put my feet on a hardwood floor
I get to hear my children laughing
Down the hall through the bedroom door

Sometimes I sit on my front porch swing
Just soakin' up the day
I think to myself, I think to myself
This world is a beautiful place!

I have been blessed
And I feel like I’ve found my way
I thank God for all I’ve been given
At the end of every day
I have been blessed
With so much more than I deserve
To be here with the ones that love me
To love them so much it hurts
I have been blessed

When I, when I’m singin' my kids to sleep...
When I feel you holding me...
I know--I am SO blessed...

I really do KNOW how blessed I am. I have an incredible husband. I have four gorgeous, healthy children. We have a home full of love. I have amazing parents, sisters, and extended family. I have the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. Truly, I couldn't ask for more.

I am so blessed.

Melissa, It is always great when we remember to Count your Blessings. I love your pics. Thanks for sharing. :0)

Thanks for sharing your pictures Melissa - you have the sweetest family! I wanted four kids, but my husband wanted two, so that is what we have - lucky you! I know what you mean about feeling blessed - when there is so much sadness in other people's life it makes you realize just how blessed we are! That song says it all too!! How are things going with your husband's grad school? Hope things slow down enough for you soon so you can stamp again! Hugs to you and your family!

We ARE so blessed! And I've been thinking lately what a blessing YOU are in my life. Sometimes I'll be talking to Mom or one of the other girls, and we all agree that just thinking about all you tackle makes us tired! But I LOVE your enthusiasm and zest for life -- you've always been that way. I love that nothing's impossible in your eyes (or at least it seems that way). I love what a rockin' mom you are to your kids; I can tell they just adore you and think you're the coolest (and you are!). I love that you're passionate and intense about everything you do -- especially those things that matter most. I love that you remember me and do things for me because you know how much they matter. You give me courage to stick to my guns, to be more adventurous, and to love others and love life. I love you, Meliss!

P.S. You need to show me how you added the tunes to your blog. Love it. LOVE it. But listening to them made me miss you! Especially "O L'mour!" Who would've known that song could make me get a little misty-eyed?! :)

Tunes? What tunes? How did I miss them??? If there's Erasure, there must be some Belinda and don't forget the Kokomo!!!

your pictures of your family are great and we all need to take time to count out blessings once in a while... enjoy them all.

I love that song- that song made me buy my first Martina McB. CD.
