A New Orleans weekend (1322 – 1343)

The counting continues…. Counting does not come naturally. I look and sometimes forget all the amazing gifts He has given. Getting back in the habit of counting those gifts; knowing that in the counting is the blessing.

1322. sweet sleeping sisters in the early morning hours
1323. National Cheeseburger Day
1324. Grandparents who are willing to take time with the grandkids
1325. Excitement in Lil Sis’ voice as she describes her day fishing with Papa

so….I continue to count. Getting back in the habit so that it comes naturally again. Blessed to have my eyes opened to the many, many blessings that He prepares for us.
