Hello all! How are ya doing? :)
I realized a couple days ago that I had never done a blessings post yet, and the Lord gave me an opportunity to do it this month, so here I go! :D

As most of you already know, I am a 16 year old country gal with 6 (and soon to be 7!!) younger siblings. I love reading, writing, singing, baking, photography, and so much more! I'm known in the blogosphere as Blessing Counter, and if you're reading this, you've probably figured out where I blog at ;)
Now here are a few things that I'm thankful for.
The Lord definitely shows His love for us in His creation, wouldn't you say? I love walking outside on a cool, spring morning and smelling the beautiful, dew-covered blossoms.
Then seeing the light from the early morning sun run across the fresh new grass.
And hearing the chirp of a little bird.
Listening to the crack of thunder and the flash of lightening, and knowing all the while that behind everything is an awesome, all-powerful Creator who loves us and cares for us. He blesses us with the beauty of nature; Praise the Lord! Who says God doesn't exist? Look around you - His very existence is shown in creation!
For His invisible attributes, namely His eternal power and divine nature have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse ~ Romans 1: 20
I LOVE music. Listening to it, singing it, playing it, everything about music is just so beautiful and amazing and somewhat mysterious. Sure, there's scientific explanations for sounds and frequencies and all that stuff, but still! It's just mind-boggling trying to grasp that God made and gave us sound. Beautiful sound that comes together as music :)
I'm not trying to be partial here; trust me, I love all my siblings! :D However, Tiger Lily and I have been best friends since forever and well, I'm very thankful for her.
I've always sort of known it, but the full reality of how much she means to me really hit me when we were at the Landry camps. There were times when I was just so overwhelmed with how many people there were, or just feeling very alone. I'd head to my dorm room and she'd always either be there already, or come in a few minutes after I arrived. And she somehow always made me feel better :)
She's funny. You've heard me say this multiple times. I think she's a clown at heart ;) A gentle, caring, kind clown.
We geek out over THE weirdest things.
We chat all night and giggle randomly at things that sometimes aren't even funny :P
We've been roommates for about 14 years, pretty much our whole life.
We're best friends forever. Bosom friends. Buddies.
We've pretended to be Mary and Laura Ingalls. We're Anne and Diana.
We've had tea parties, Indian war dances, and operas. We do weird things to our ice cream cones.
She is special.
Thank you, Lord, for blessing me with this girl!
