But I am Blessed!

I started taking down Halloween items and putting them away in a bin, and I could NOT believe all the stuff that had been accumulated in the last month or so. This requires another bin!
I thought focusing on Thanksgiving and being Thankful was in order!
Now I want to enjoy being thankful, enjoy my blessings...even if they (hubby and daughter) do mess up the house, fill the sink with dishes, color my new top...designer jean color because the soccer princess didn't separate colors! Hello....but I am blessed....
the bathrooms are dirty but I am blessed...
there are whiskers in the sink from the razor...but I am blessed...
chicken feathers in my living room...but I am blessed...
dirty clothes right NEXT TO THE HAMPER(couldn't quite make it?) but I am blessed....
my skinny jeans don't quite fit anymore...but I am blessed
more bills (college) and less money...but I AM BLESSED.
I set out a few things to replace all the orange and black! Those colors really don't fit in my house but it was soooo fun while it lasted!
Several of you requested a tutorial of sorts for the Blessing Book~Wednesday I will post that.
Have a blessed day!
Debbie

LOL except for the chicken feathers, that was my house when the kids still lived at home. I loved it then and I love it now when they come to visit and then go home to their own mess. They always seem to leave a little reminder that they were here though!

Hi Miss Debbie. Thanks for thinking about me and the tassels. I just added some new ones this evening so I thought I would let you know. It has been so crazy around here.
How has your daughter been feeling? Jesse is doing good but still has days that he has no get up and go. Hope that passes. I have those days sometimes too, hehe. Well take care~

Nice to be reminded that we should not take any of our "blessings" for granted! Even if they're not perfect blessings! Mimi

You are funny! I'm sure we can all relate, maybe not the feathers, but you know what I mean. I love how you are using the rooster stuff for fall decorating. I love rooster stuff!

Oh, Debbie -- I'm so glad that someone else is surrounded by the little reminders of a busy house. We are all so blessed ... little messes and all.
