31 Days of Wishes : Day 8

My wish for the day is for everyone  when you are worried our troubled and can't sleep would be to count your blessings instead of sheep.

For me for during the last five weeks as I have focused on thankfulness and the many blessings in my life instead of my "troubles", it has had a profound effect on my life, and my relationships with the people that I love.

"Count Your Blessings" is a popular song written by Irving Berlin for the movie White Christmas.

When I'm worried and I can't sleep

I count my blessings instead of sheep

And I fall asleep counting my blessings

When my bankroll is getting small

I think of when I had none at all

And I fall asleep counting my blessings

I think about a nursery and I picture curly heads

And one by one I count them as they slumber in their beds

If you're worried and you can't sleep

Just count your blessings instead of sheep

And you'll fall asleep counting your blessings


  1. when you can't sleep at 3 am because you don't know where your pager is? is that an example! LOL!
