Unexpected Blessings

I woke the other day thinking it was going to be a normal day. Normal, what is that anyway? Well, truthfully a little late. So we were in the race against time a bit.Jeremie and I were headed over to spend a little time at his new preschool. We wanted to see how he would do.
Right away he started playing with the toys and the other kids.One little boy was very cute in asking why he was black. I said he was born that way. He continued to tell me we are all born and you could see the wheels turning in his head processing why Jeremie was black. Music time started and he sat with the other children. He was doing so well. I was practically kicked out to go do something else.
Proceeding to the car. I thought about the last few taxing months and how I haven't had alone time in awhile.I decided to go to downtown Nampa and sit and have coffee. I went into one of our little tea shops Cafe De Coco in a little quite corner to myself.The shop was empty and very quite. I sat reflecting still on the past few months and started counting the blessings. I am truly in awe and then some.....
I wonder if we ever sit down and slow life down to really count our blessings.
I started to write all the blessings and my hand got cramped and I don't dare try to type them all either. I did have a full page on a hand written piece of paper.
I dare you to write them all down.
