Count Your Blessings

What a busy day today!!! I am going to keep this blog post, short and sweet. I have spent most of the day getting ready for a craft fair tomorrow. I had to go get somebody to cut the lock on my storage unit since I lost the key. I got the stuff I needed out of storage, came home and went through a lot of the cards, I have saved over the years – to try and sell.

I got those bagged up and my pencil holders. I was going to make more matching cards and envelopes but my envelope punch board is still packed away – somewhere.

And I started physical therapy today!!! Today, I got to pick up marbles with my toes – I could feel the muscles in my foot getting stronger.

I did not emotionally eat today!!! Even though I was uber busy. For dinner, I just had some of my leftover black bean goulash. It was really good and hit the spot. Who knew they made pasta that is made with black bean flour. No enriched, processed flour in it. Just a gluten free, black bean pasta with 21g of protein in a serving. I made it with grass fed ground beef and stewed tomatoes..

Counting my blessings today. I am beginning to see a pattern and gain an understanding of why I sometimes fall into the trap of emotionally eating. I forget to count my blessings.

Even though life may sometimes seem hard and super stressful… it could also be so much worse. I need to remember to wake up and thank God everyday for all that He has given me and all that He has done for me and for all that He is gonna do for me.

And for the finale of this blog post – I leave you with some of the lyrics to the song – Count Your Blessings (Instead of Sheep)

When I’m worried and I can’t sleep
I count my blessings instead of sheep
And I fall asleep counting my blessings
When my bankroll is getting small
I think of when I had none at all
And I fall asleep counting my blessings

Be Blessed Dear Friends and Readers.
