St. Patty's Day Blessings

I don't really like to use the word lucky when talking about life. I'd rather use the word blessed. Sure, I use that word when I'm speaking, but really, I know that any luck I've had in life is really just God's doing - leading me to the right place at the right time if you want to look at it that way - really, leading me in His ways.

On this St. Patrick's Day, I started thinking about my luck in life. My life has been blessed abundantly and way more than I deserve. I'm so thankful for all these lucky blessings.

My husband. I am so blessed to have this man in my life. Words cannot even begin to describe how I feel about him. He is my best fried, biggest supporter and love of my life. He makes every day fun.



My children. These boys are my heart and soul. I always heard it said that the love you have for your children is entirely different than anything else in the world. How true this is!



My family. I could list something incredible about each and every member of my family - they're just awesome. I'm so thankful that I was born into an awesome family and married into one as well.



Running. While I know some may think this is silly, I'm really thankful that I run and that my favorite hobby is something that's good for my body.



My faith. I am so thankful for God's grace and forgiveness. This is the greatest blessing in life.



My career. I am so blessed to be where I am in my career. I love what I do which makes going to work fun, and I'm thankful to be at this place in this point in my life.


And, I'll leave you with these sweet treats the boys and I made for their classes:


Each rainbow is made with three multi-colored Twizzlers, pots of gold are Rolos and I found this awesome printable from Teaching Blog Addict
