Christmas Eve Blessings

It's Christmas Eve! I can't believe it's finally here. We are all so thrilled. During the holiday season I love to think about all of my many many blessings. This year being so far away from family makes me realize how truly blessed I am. It has brought things into focus. Here is a small list of things I'm most thankful for at this very moment:

*God, and the amazing way he loves me even though I don't deserve it.

*My husband and our wonderful relationship.

*My children. Enough said.

*My family. I have such a big one and for this I'm so thankful.

*My house.

*My car.

*The sunshine shining on the mountains I can see out my window.

*Airplanes that get my little family home to Tennessee.

*Friends. Oh, I have so many wonderful ones.

*The food waiting to be cooked in my refrigerator.

*The good health that we all are in.

*Christmas carols.

*My clean house all decorated for Christmas.

*My bags that are almost packed ready to come home.

Oh, I could go on and on. God has blessed me in so many ways. I hope that all of you are having a wonderful Christmas Eve.

Merry Christmas!
