Top Seven Blessings of 2007

These are my top blessings in 2007 in no particular order:
  • Greg’s job success. We asked God to help Greg make additional income so I could stay home and take care of Mom. He answered our prayer.
  • My Bold and Free blog. What a blessing to meet so many wonderful new friends and connect all across the globe!
  • Both kids were married. That’s right, they’re grown up for sure now. B was married on the coldest June day and T must have had the hottest day in August. Both outside garden weddings and completely different.
  • No surgeries for anyone living in this house! In fact, no hospital stays either. In 2006, all four of us had at least one surgery, and two of us had two or more.
  • I published twice outside of my blogs.
  • My new friends – The Fav Five – click here to read about it on our new blog.
  • Personal and spiritual growth.

So what about you? Share your blessings of 2007 in the comments below.

  1. Wonderful blessings, especially health and the ability to take care of your mom. We always take those things for granted until we have to give in to the illness/circumstances. Mine blessings were: Growth in my personal relationship the the Lord.Healthy children who can live out lives of their own and strive to achieve their own dreams. (real important considering those five minute indulgence breaks I started taking this year)marriage to my honey, who gets better (and worse) with every year.Finding out about blogging. You women are funny, intelligent, heart warming, servants. Here’s praying 2008 will be a continuation of 2007 and a great joy to you. BTW- what have you published outside your blog?
