Count the Blessings

So many amazing blessings to count!  One of my dearest friends, who wasn’t even supposed to have one baby, just had her second … and calling Ellisyn beautiful is the understatement of the year.  Another lifelong friend just found out that TWINS are on the way.  And after a heart-breaking pregnancy loss, my cousin is due in July.  My nephew, Nate, just celebrated seven months old.  He and his parents will be visiting next month.  My nephew, Carter, is now more physically able than ever, communicating constantly and even hugging his sister!  He’ll be six on St. Patrick’s day which is mind-blowing.  I’m convinced life without my 3 ½ year-old niece, Ella, was boring as all get out.  She’s a riot.  And my two boys … oh my.  I can’t even begin.  Everett was three in December and Roman is six months-old tomorrow!  If we could just get and stay healthy for more than a millisecond, I would be very happy.  They’re my world.  Period.  There’s also my mom and dad who willingly and lovingly watch the boys every single day, and my husband who smiles while participating in my crazy world. 

The sky is blue, the sun is shining.  Some days, you just need to count your blessings and be thankful.  Today is one of those days.
