Counting Your Blessings


Last year, I shared about my gratitude journal and how I count my blessings (at least five, sometimes more) before I go to sleep. It reminded me of this song from the movie, White Christmas. So I shared the song, too, but it was on the Friday after Thanksgiving, and maybe you were busy with after-Thanksgiving activities.

I thought I’d share the song again. ‘Cause I just love this song.

I don’t love journaling so much. I know I call my notebook a “gratitude journal”, but it’s more like a collection of lists. I’m a professional when it comes to making lists. Wherever I am, I pull out my gratitude notebook and list away.  And most nights, I drift off pretty peacefully.

So after the cleaning and the dusting, the chopping and the stuffing, the baking and the cooking, I hope you’ll have a quiet moment for counting your blessings. Even if it’s the last thing you do before you close your eyes on Thanksgiving night:

If you’re worried and you can’t sleep. Count your blessings instead of sheep. And you’ll fall asleep, counting your blessings.


Friday’s Fun Find: Counting My Blessings

I promised you the song, “Counting My Blessings” which just happens to be from one of my favorite oldie-but-goldie holiday movies, White Christmas.  I could write a book about how much I love Danny Kaye and Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney and the song, “Sisters” and the way I always cry at the end of the movie, but I’ll spare you all those words (see how I worked writing in there?) so you can just sit back and enjoy this wonderfulness:
