i feel so blessed

Posted: August 12, 2010 at 12:14 pm

I want to say THANK YOU to everyone uplifting and supporting the 30 Days of Self-Reflection movement I will be starting in September. I can’t even begin to put into words how it makes me feel. The only thing that comes to mind is blessed. Incredibly so. I had tears building up reading through your comments and seeing that you all feel strongly about this topic as well; because yes, I feel that strongly about this little thing. I cannot wait for September and to see what this can do for all of us. Even the most confident of us out there can benefit from taking time to really consider our true worth every day.


I want to give a special thanks to those who posted the 30 Days button on their blogs. You rock!!! The blog button info is in the sign up post if you want to share it on your blog. Check these ladies out. They each are fabulous and share such beautiful hearts and personalities in their blogs.

If you aren’t sure what I’m talking about, please check out this post. If you want to join in and look forward to September and taking 30 days to fall more in love with yourself SIGN UP HERE. If you posted on last night’s announcement post about wanting to participate in the 30 days, please also comment on the sign up post. I hope to have everyone in one place to make it easier for me to keep up with those bloggers participating and be in touch with all of you.

Once again – THANK YOU and I feel so blessed for your support and friendship. Love you all!

In other blessings…my morning meals have been a pure blessing as well. After enjoying my bowl of oats yesterday morning so much I had to do a semi-recreation this morning.


I’m in love with the hazelnut spread.Yes, I consider it a blessing. Having food to fuel my body in itself is a blessing. But something this delicious makes it even more so.

The morning only got better. For my 11:00 snack I cut into a beautiful watermelon.

Oh, craving satisfaction! Possibly the only thing more of a blessing than satisfying a pregnancy craving for fresh fruit would be sharing the snack with a special mini-me.


She is a true blessing!!! And always reminds me of the blessings God has given me to bring me to this place in life. I never imagined being here, but could not fathom ever feeling more fulfilled than I do now.

  • Tell me one blessing you see in your life today.
  • What fruit do you crave during summer?

  1. i am blessed to live in such a beautiful area. i may not be in love with my job or income, but i get to see the mountains every time i leave my neighborhood!

    and summer fruit has GOT to be strawberries. they’re the quintessential summer fruit for me!

    AND i am going to install the widget right now!

  2. I’m blessed to have such an amazing faith-filled husband. We both went to Mass (church) together this morning and I’m so blessed to love a man who sincerely loves God and has such a beautiful soul. Not to mention he’s a total Hunk HAHA! 🙂

    I wish I could say I was a “fruit” person, but I’m not. Avocado is a fruit, though, right (since it has a seed)? That is what I’ve been craving but haven’t been including that in my comp diet. sigh.

  3. I crave watermelon and blackberries in the summer. Those are pretty much the only two fruit that I really crave.

    Im blessed to have people like you in my life who really care about me and my well being.

  5. I’m so blessed that I have my husband, my children and my health. 🙂

    Girl, I need to catch up on your blog! I’m been MIA and it looks like I have missed things!

  6. I’m so blessed that I got to spend time with my brother this week! I miss him already!

  7. I am extremely blessed to have my big 12 year old today! I am on cloud nine just thinking about the years we have had together and the years we have to be together!

    Summer fruit…any kind of melon! YUM! Glad you are having a better day Tina!

  8. A Lemon Zest Luna Bar and watermelon – I’m pretty sure there is no better snack in my eyes.

    I am so blessed that my Mom’s shoulder surgery is healing well and that her pain is going away. God is great 🙂

  9. I am blessed that I live 3 blocks from my best friend, work at the same company as my dad (and see him often) and live 15 minutes from my parents! Keeping family close is a HUGE blessing.

    I crave melon, melon and more melon in the summer. Honeydew, watermelon, cantaloupe – my cravings don’t discriminate!

  12. Sana says:

  13. I love to arrange my bananas in my oatmeal like that and put the PB in the middle. It makes it seem so much more special before you just stir it into a blob of a mess 😉 Today I am so thankful for a hubby who was willing to get up and run with me.

  14. Nicole, RD says:

    She is darling! A mini you, indeed…beautiful!! 🙂 I feel blessed for having a job.

    Undeniably consider that which you said. Your favourite reason appeared to be at the net the
    simplest thing to keep in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get irked at the same time as people consider issues that they just don’t realize about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and
    defined out the entire thing with no need side effect , other people can take a signal.
    Will likely be again to get more. Thank you
