It has been a long time that that I have taken part in The Path of Positivity Challenges. This month the theme is Blessings. Thank you Lisa for reminding me that I am truly blessed. My body has betrayed me. I have osteoporosis and 7 other autoimmune disorders. It seems every time I turn around something else is wrong. Lately I have felt very down and discouraged. Then I read the Path of Positivity post. I sat and thought about my blessings. What are my blessings? I realized I had a lot to be thankful for.
I have life, I can still walk, albeit with a cane, I have my parents still with me, I have a home, I have 3 brothers, 3 nieces and their children, I still can craft and paint. I have heat and running water. I have food to eat and hot tea to drink. I have many crafting friends. I have a good mind. I can go on and on about all that God has given me naturally. The best blessing is being able to serve him and his precious Son. Yes It is a blessing, a very special blessing.
This little angel makes me think of her saying thank you for all the blessings bestowed. That is why I used her for this card.
