I Am Blessed

It's a lovely cool Sunday morning. My husband is already at meetings at Church so I am just sitting here snuggled up in the sheets listening to my family around the house getting ready for the day and thinking about how blessed I am. I may not have everything I'd like in life. A few dollars in the bank would be nice and a septic system would also be helpful. But my children are healthy, my husband loves me and I live in a peaceful country where I can worship God as I choose. I can grow my own vegetables and raise chickens to feed my family. I can travel to the city and have fun with my children exploring the history of Halifax. I can visit with my parents and watch as they spend time with their grand children. Life is full of so many stresses for all of us that it's important to take a minute each day and be grateful for all the good things in our lives. Today I'm grateful for families and Temples.

  1. Hi,
    I had wondered if you were LDS but I didn't want to ask :) It's so great to find a like minded family. We are from Southern Alberta and although there are a lot of farmers and most of them LDS, most of them don't subscribe to the self sufficient/sustainable life style that we are trying to create on our little 5 acres. I truly enjoy reading and learning from your blog. Keep it up! Thanks!
