Three or More Tuesday – Blessings



Happy Tuesday everybody!! Our fantastic hostess, Tam over at the Gypsy’s Corner is hosting "Three or More - Tuesday". If you would like to participate, drop in and visit her for all of the details.

I think it is so easy to get caught up in day to day hectic schedules, stressful jobs & other things that we lose sight of the essential things that we are so fortunate to have.


It really is amazing to think how blessed we all are. Today I would like to share just a few of my blessings with you. These are not material things, but things that are very important to me. 



I cannot believe just how blessed I am to have my own home to come to everyday.  It is so sad to think there are so many people living on the streets that have no idea from day to day where they will go for shelter.





I feel so blessed to have a warm & cozy bed to lay in every single night.  There are so many people out there who would give anything to have just a blanket and a safe place to lay their head each night.

By the way, Bentley says he also feels blessed too!!



Each day I think what a luxury it is to have a bathroom with clean running water to use, and to shower in.  To have clean towels to use is also something I am so, very thankful for.









I am also so very blessed to have family & friends in my life.  It really is amazing to think how lonely it would be not to have them!! 

And, one of my biggest blessings that I am so very thankful for is this sweet little boy!!! 




Have a blessed week!!

You are truly blessed. Nicole. Where have you been? I missed you and I was quite worried. I just got back from a cruise that's why I wasn't able to respond to your comment. Glad you're back@!...

Hi Nicloe! Your Bentley is still such a cutie!! Thanks for your sweet remarks! And you are right about Baby Kitty...he thinks he already IS a model! He sees the camera and comes running! The program I use for mosaics is Photoscape. It's free! Download it here:

Go to the section called "Page" and you'll see tons of possible combinaitons! And it's soooo much easier than some of the other mosaic makers! Have a wonderful Christmas!...hugs...Debbie

Hi Nicole,
Thank you for your sweet comment today! I always enjoy your visits.

I found the little red Holiday initial flags at a local Pottery decor' store that went out of business last year. Darn...:(
I'm so sorry. I would have mailed you one if they still had them and had your letter. I have not seen them anywhere else either.

Merry Christmas to you and your family! ~Melissa :)
