Counting blessings???

For the past few years I've had some ppl in my life, including the father of my children, who could really suck the life out of me. When isolated and spending so much time around these negative people, I found myself stooping to their level of course. I've been depressed, I have panic attacks, I have days when I'm angry for no reason, sad for no reason, paranoid...so on and so forth. But there are times when I stop myself because of something I see or hear or think of...to really count my blessings. So I wanted to get some things out that I'm thankful for, and go to bed thinking of them. Hopefully I can get some others to join in with me :)

1. I am thankful that I had yet another day with my children.  2. I am thankful for the breeze that's cooled down the suns rays. 3. I am thankful that God granted me two healthy, handsome boys! 4. That I am healthy and have a place for my children and I to lay our heads. 5. For family who truly cares.

Thank you for the replies and youre more than welcome for reminding you to count your blessings :) I have bad days where nothing has much meaning and then I have days where the sun is so hot it tingles and a cloud comes over and the breeze passes by and I remember to say Thank you. Thank you lord for this life and all of the blessings we sometimes look over :) <3 and thankyou for all the welcomes.

I am thankful that I have the 3 beautiful children that I do. My 3 yr old broke his leg clean through a few days ago and super thankful the bone didn't move so he didn't have to endure a painful setting or surgery!
