100 Blessings

Sometimes it's hard to count your blessings. We all need to remind ourselves of what's good in our lives. So here is Part One of of my own 100 blessings.

Want to count your blessings too? 100 Blessings spans over one month. Once a week, post 25 of your blessings — from life-changing to trivial — and link up in a comment! I'd love to read your lovelies. Feel free to use this banner in your Blessings posts too.

  23. I love this idea! I definitely want to try it but I know I'm way behind and I'm having trouble finding time to blog, but this is definitely something I need to work on so I'm going to try. I have a bad tendency to focus only on the negative, so this could be a really good exercise. I'll be back to work on this after work I promise. :)
