"When Upon life's billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings;
name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord has done.
... So amid the conflict, whether great or small
Do not be discouraged;
God is over all.
Count your many blessings;
angles will attend..."
~ {Hymn:  Count Your Many Blessings, by Johnson Oatman Jr.}

This song pretty much sums up how I've felt this past week, especially because of some events that have come to pass in the state that I live in.  Times are changing, morals are fading, but life goes on and there is still so much good in my life and that is what I need to focus on.

It's so fitting that this is a month that we especially look for those things we are thankful for.
So, in no particular order, these are the happy blessings in my life that I am so very thankful for:

*Christmas Songs in November
*Hot Chocolate
*My Family (three healthy, beautiful children and a very supportive husband)
*A cozy home
*Clearance racks at Target
*Fall colors & changing seasons
*Chocolate Chip cookies, fresh from the oven
*Fall Scented Candles
*Great Friends
*A healthy body
*Extended Family Members
*My Husband's Job
*Food in my pantry
*Thrift Stores
*The Internet
*A Closet Full of Clothes
*Household Appliances (Dishwasher, Washers, Dryers, etc.)
*A Safe Neighborhood to Live In
*My Savior
*Date Nights with My Husband
*The Opportunity to be a Stay at Home Mom
*Classic Chick Flicks
*Modern Medicine
*Cameras to Capture Favorite Memories
*Our Family Dog, Paco

I wish each one of you a month full of blessings! 
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only two weeks away?  
This month is moving so crazy fast!

This is a great post. Needed it, especially because of certain events that have recently happened. I do have a lot to be thankful for and will try to make the best of the next handful of years.
