#49 My Education
I have a degree in Elementary Education from Brigham Young University. While I really haven't had too much time to use it professionally, I have certainly used it in my life- within our family, in my kids schools, and in my church responsibilities. I'm glad to have the knowledge I have acquired, the satisfaction that I accomplished that goal, and the security that I could use it professionally if the need arises.
#50The ability to cook and clean
This is my hand after a day of cooking and cleaning, etc.,etc., etc. Especially during the winter months not much is more appreciated than a good lotion for my dry, itchy, cracking-open-and-bleeding skin. (Sorry about the nastiness of the picture!) My kids have pretty dry skin too. How miserable would life be if I couldn't soothe this simple pain for them and me. A blessing in my life? Yes.
#52 52 Blessings Project
This project has been a good experience for me. I looked for the blessings around me in my daily life- and there are truly so many. Certainly more than 52! I appreciate more the simple things I'd taken for granted. I thought more about how blessed I am. I appreciate whoever's brain child this was. (I learned of through Cara's blog) And I'm glad I did all 52, even if it took me couple of extra weeks to get them all recorded! ;)
