Counting my blessings: 6

Branch Of Wisdom

Simplicity. The more stuff, things to do, things to keep track of, etc., the more distracted I am and not only do I not feel blessed, but I forget to look for the blessings. When there isn't a lot going on, when I purge and reduce the stuff in my life, when I have time to focus, time to spend with my girls and my husband without pressure to do anything, clean anything, or put anything away I realize the blessings more and I appreciate them more. I have way too much stuff and it has become a burden to me. So all this "stuff" that I have will, prayerfully, become a blessing for others as I work on purging it out of my life.

I am working to simplify what we do and how much we do. It's so easy to over-schedule and do too much running around. I am simplifying and it is a blessing!

Many others are counting their blessings, too. To read what others are thankful for today, hop on over to Branch of Wisdom.


  1. I'm finally able to make the rounds today! It's been busy day :)

    Oh my, this one touched home! I'm all for simplicity and sadly I find it more complicated..hehe! Thank you for reminding us to of this quest as a blessing.

  2. Praising the Lord for this blessing along with you! I am also caught up in too much stuff, and am attempting to keep on purging my home of it. always love it when another load of boxes go to the Goodwill!
