A Time To Heal: A Time of Blessings

Unending days lately... on the couch trying to get over a nasty virus.

Just a few more days and our girls will head back to college.
Those beautiful smiles will only be on a computer screen...

But I have a choice.
Focus on the negative or focus on my blessings?

I have a husband who never spends a second of his time vegging on sports.
He rarely hunts and only if it fits the family schedule.
He works hard for us and then comes home to see how he can help at home.
He has played games with the girls while I've been sick.
Helped with meals. Vacuumed. 
Kept the wood stove burning.

And these daughters of mine? Where could I possibly begin? They love me like their daddy does. Need I say more?

Thank You, Abba, for my abundant blessings. Help me get better. Help me learn lessons through this time spent in a way I do not prefer. And thank You for the blanket of soft white snow which makes this time of year so glorious!
