Count your blessings

I feel so sad these days and I have a lot of things do (including blogging and blog hopping) but I don't feel like working to accomplish them. I can list so many reasons to be happy, so why in the world don't I feel happy? Maybe because I am too tired of having a day off or 2 in between 3 or 4 graveyard shifts. Sometimes I feel miserable for no reason at all. Am I experiencing PMS? Maybe, I reckon. Or am I just too worried about  my obligations? Just thinking out loud. Whenever I feel like giving up, I always close my eyes and think of how blessed I am. That I shouldn't complain....but hey! I am just a human--an ordinary woman. Nevertheless, I am still thankful and grateful. Thank you Lord for all the blessings!

Allow me to share some of my favorite quotes and my photos.

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;Count your gains instead of your losses. Count your joys instead of your woes; Count your friends instead of your foes. Count your smiles instead of your tears; Count your courage instead of your fears. Count your full years instead of your lean; Count your kind deeds instead of your mean. Count your health instead of your wealth; Count on God instead of yourself.

Every positive thing in your life represents a single unique blessing. Every negative thing in your life has the opportunity to become a double blessing. For when you turn a negative into a positive, you gain twice. You are no longer burdened with the negative situation, and in addition to that you are strengthened by a new positive force.
~~Ralph Marston

Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not your past misfortunes of which all men have some.
~~Charles Dickens

The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings.
~~Eric Hoffer
