"Blessed"

I hope everyone has had a great weekend! I've been having a blast spending time with my extended family.  These people are amazing, and I feel so privileged to be related to them.  Celebrating my Grandpa's birthday on Saturday was definitely the highlight.  There were so many people there, so much love, and it was beautiful.  It made me so thankful for my life, my family and everything I have been blessed with.  Martina McBride has a wonderful song that perfectly depicts how I feel right now! 

"I get kissed by the sun
Each morning
Put my feet on a hardwood floor
I get to hear my children laughing
Down the hall through the
Bedroom door
Sometimes I sit on my
Front porch swing
Just soaking up the day
I think to myself, I think to myself
This world is a beautiful place

I have been blessed
And I feel like I’ve found my way
I thank God for all I’ve been given

At the end of every day
I have been blessed
With so much more than I deserve
To be here with the ones
That love me
To love them so much it hurts
I have been blessed

Across a crowded room,
I know you know what I’m thinking
By the way I look at you
And when we’re lying in the quiet and
No words have to be said
I think to myself, I think to myself
This love is a beautiful gift

I have been blessed
And I feel like I’ve found my way
I thank God for all I’ve been given

At the end of every day
I have been blessed
With so much more than I deserve
To be here with the ones
That love me
To love them so much it hurts
I have been blessed

When I’m singing my kids to sleep
When I feel you holding me
I know

I have been blessed
And I feel like I’ve found my way
I thank God for all I’ve been given

At the end of every day
I have been blessed
With so much more than I deserve
To be here with the ones
That love me
To love them so much it hurts
I have been blessed"


I am excited to share more moments with my family over the rest of this week.  My Grandma is coming as well, and we will be celebrating her birthday later in the week.  Blessed is the best way to describe how I feel right now.  I hope you do as well!

Day 12: Think about all of the blessings in your life =) 

Love True,
Allison







The beautiful quilt we had made for Papa.  It commemorates over 40 years of family traditions.  The quote reads, "The love of family is life's greatest blessing."
