Tuesday's Tip: Count Your Blessings

With the so much going on for the holidays, deadlines to keep, shopping to do, and such, I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed. I hate it when I feel this way.

Last night I received an email that made me upset. And it wasn't really that email that upset me, but an accumulation of all the little things that had been building up inside that finally had me saying, "Why am I doing this?"

Hubby sat down beside me and tried to make me feel better. As he spoke, I was reminded of a song in the movie, White Christmas. You know the one about counting your blessings instead of sheep. Believe it or not, counting your blessings not only helps you fall to sleep, but they also make you feel a lot better when you're feeling blue.

So my tip for today is count your blessings. You'll be surprised how many you really have and how fortunate you truly are.

What do you do when you're feeling down?

Okay, speaking of sheep I remembered something I saw on youtube years ago and thought you might get a kick out of it. If you're feeling blue this will make you smile.



  1. Thanks for this reminder to count our blessings. Definitely needed during this busy time of year!

  2. I just watched White Christmas the other day! Love that movie. My sister and I used to play being Judy and Betty, LoL. I so want to wear those gorgeous red dresses to a Christmas party some day!!!

    It's so true that counting my blessings does help me feel calmer and clears my mind. It puts things in perspective and reminds me of how good I have it and to say thank you.

    Wishing you well, Kathi, and I hope you cheer up soon!!
