Count Your Blessings

With the renewal and hope that spring brings each year, I decided it was time again to begin my appreciation walks. These early morning walks were originally for exercise, but took an interesting twist as it began a time for reflection and connection. Taking in my surroundings, I realize how fortunate I truly am.

I experience the mist over the lake...the ducks taking an early swim...the sun rising over the trees...the moon still lingering in the sky...the birds singing above my head...the flowers bursting with blossoms...and so much more that I can only be thankful for it all.

As I returned home, I wondered what everyone else is thankful for. I then thought this may be a perfect share time. Please let me know your thoughts about a once a month McLinkey titled 'Count Your Blessings'. It could be held the first of each month. No sharing of things, projects, or latest finds...just a true appreciation of nature, family, friends, faith, etc.

So what do you think? I appreciate all thoughts and opinions. And please share your blessings in your comment.

Your idea might be fun! Loved your photos today - refreshing! No flowers here yet - too early and too cold - but, it's warming up finally!

Welcome back to the blogosphere! I like your blog's new look. =) Your flowers are gorgeous. We have a few here but not as many as you.

"Count your Blessings" sounds like a good idea. I say, give it a shot.

Counting my blessings and waiting on the tulips to burst forth in our flower beds.

I'm blessed with a wonderful family, a home I love, and my health.

And of course my blog family - I look forward to everyone's visits and comments :) There's nothing like a sweet comment on a bad day.

Love this post Cindy. It sounds like you live in a really nice area. I would surely feel blessed to live on a lake with wildlife all around. Right now I feel blessed that birds are becoming abundant and I can watch and listen to them.

Count me in if you do a monthly post.
