Slowly counting

counting a little slower this week...  This week is tough... I wanted to blame it on the full moon, (but that in itself is a gift from our Great Creator) It was really just the devil, trying to get me down...he almost succeeded!  I still managed to count blessings, but I felt some of it was superficial, forced!  My kids fought like cats and dogs, I yelled and hollered, got mad at them, got mad at my husband, confessed my sins/anger and then did it all over again!! So please bear with me as I count... and know that God gave me a lot this week internally that I don't know how to put into words!!
