Blessings

With a nod to my wife (I can't bring myself to put "dw" since that is Arthur's little sister, but maybe "fv" will do), here is an accounting of some of my blessings:

  • My God who has had a firm hand on my life since I was a child, who has comforted me through dark times, taken me places I haven't always wanted to go, but has ALWAYS led me back into the light.
  • My wife who has supported and encouraged me, even when things aren't working out as I would hope. I love our "dates" out to Starbucks and other little treats.
  • Three children who are loving and haven't given me very much grief, at least not yet. I am very proud of their character and abilities.
  • A good, stable job that allows me to take care of my family, even as the economy is taking a downturn.
  • Skills and abilities that allow me to help my friends and family, and keep myself occupied.
  • Friends who have stuck by me through thick and thin.
  • The material blessings I have, including my house, cars and computers. Having a Fry's Electronics near by is nice too.
So many more than could be mentioned here. How about you?

Nice to see a man walking in the path and leading his family.

My short list is: beautiful children and husband & having been given access to many of the US's best places (such as Arizona, and New Orleans) in order to experience a clearer understanding of life outside my own bubble!

Great post!
