I woke up during the night and could not get back to sleep...seems to be a pattern these days. Instead of counting sheep, reading or watching TV, I decided to count the things I feel thankful for......

My faith in God
The depth of my faith in God
My health
The health of my friends and family
My friends and family
My dog, Hope
The health of my dog, Hope
The freedom of our country
The four seasons but mostly summer
The fact that I have a roof over my head and a bed to lay in to count my blessings.....

Then.....I think I fell asleep. Have I discovered a new cure of insomnia?

What are you thankful for....think about while you enjoy your weekend.

Happy Friday :)


  1. If it was only that easy to fall asleep for me. My brain seems to relive every mistake I've ever made in my life...
    I am thankful for the roof over my head. My children. My family. My grandson. I am thankful I blog!

  2. You should have called - I was up until almost 4! John's away and there's no Maxie to snuggle with in my bed.

  3. Welcome to my world. I love that you focused on the positive. There is good stuff there;)
