Counting our Blessings

Stored away in books are the
Countless, simple blessings of our lives.
Rainy days, summer haze, school plays;
Autumn leaves, rolled up sleeves in
Photos we've taken of our lives.
Big deals, training wheels, family meals;
Our holidays and each childhood phase
On storied pages of our lives.
Killer braces, favorite places, silly faces;
Imperfect hair and prom night flair
Number among the countless, daily and
God sent blessings of our lives.


  1. It's amazing how our memories take on a new life when they are compiled, narrated and decorated in a special way.

  2. Oh! I feel so guilty now about the piles of photos I have stuffed in shoeboxes! One day I'll get them in albums so that we can enjoy them. One day...

  3. Hi, I'm over here from Six Word Fridays - nice to meet you!

    In this digital age, I feel so guilty that I've yet to compile a photo album of my family. I moved recently and found SO MANY old albums that I flipped through and I was flooded with memories from my own past. Someday I'll get to it. Meanwhile, thank goodness for really big hard drives that store countless photos. :)

  4. Yummy acrostic full of blessings!

  5. I have tons of photos too that need to be compiled, sorted into a book of memories. I keep saying "some day". I should really get on it. ;)

  6. Keeping your memories in order: blessed!

  7. This poem flows beautifully!
