Count It All Joy

Sometimes being an adult isn't all that fun.  Let's be honest.  Bills.  Responsibilities.  Chores. Pressures.  Work.  It's not all fun and games.

There are so many things going on in my life that I let pull my focus away from the joy and blessings that surround me - and it's up to me (and you too) to make the choice to not dwell on the tough stuff.  I don't know about you, but I don't want to loose sight of all the goodness I've been granted in this life.

My sweet baby growing in my belly.

The excitement of redecorating our office into a baby girl nursery. (PS It's a girl!)

The love and closeness my family shares.

The fact that it's almost 70 degrees in March & that it's finally not snowing!

That the Tarheels are still ranked at the end of the season.

That I saw a container of Mr. Bubble at Target last night (who knew they still made that bubble gum smelling awesomeness??)

And today's big excitement…..


Take that college loans.  Be done with you!  Talk about excitement & a true blessing all in one.

What blessing today, big or small, brings joy to your heart today?  There's never a shortage of things to be thankful for.  We just have to stop, look, and be thankful.
