Counting My Blessings Days 25 and 26 :)

Hey Y'all Happy Pink Saturday to ya.
Be sure to stop in and visit Beverly and all the other pinkies at Beverly's blog How Sweet The Sound

I crashed yesterday! I never even got online, I came home from working "BLACK FRIDAY" and went right to bed. I slept 12 solid hours! Well I had been up for almost 48 hours so I am not surprised.

SO my blessing for yesterday was that I was blessed to have a decent day at work.
Black Friday is a rough day for everyone who works retail!
I was running a register most of my shift and helping customers and my co-workers, I got cussed at only twice and only had about 15 people with really bad attitudes. Not too bad for the busiest shopping day of the year.
So I was blessed, it was not too bad on me and at 8am when I got off I went to breakfast with my friend Julie and we had a nice relaxing time.

For my blessing today I have to share with you the women in my life. My sisters. I am blessed to be the oldest of our clan. I am the big sister to 4 sisters and 2 sisters in love.

Beth is next in line, she is wonderful, her heart is so big and if you ever need anything organized she is your girl! She is a great cook, like me loves to travel, works hard and loves Snow babies :)

Left to right is our Mom, Beth, Joanne, Laura, Me and Amanda.

The next one born was Christy, she passed away at 1 day old.
She has been an Angel since 1976
She is forever in our hearts.

Next is Joanne. She is the mother to Colby and Shelby. This woman is a wonderful mama! She is so creative and can decorate a cake like a professional! She is so kind and always there in a flash if anyone needs anything.She has a quick wit and always makes us laugh.

Last born is Laura. She was born with clear blue eyes and white blond hair. She is beautiful inside and out. She is also very clever and creative.
She loves to travel and ride roller coasters. She is easily the most crafty of all of us and has a wonderful sense of humor and smile.

Then we have my sister in love Amanda.
She is the mother of Layden. She met my brother at the gym and we are all so glad she did. He loves her so much and so do we.
Her laugh makes you smile, she loves the Twilight movies and books so we share that passion :)
I used to worry I would not get to know her very well since she is 16 younger than I;  but know her and love her I do! Another creative sista!

And my other sister in love Angela

who I wrote about last week...
How much I miss her!

These ladies are my blessing everyday! I know how much they care for me and how much I love them.
They are talented, creative, funny, lovely, loving, and fun.
God blessed me greatly when he made me the oldest sister to all these
beautiful girls.
Thank you Father for my best friends.
I am blessed.


  1. Hello Jenny,
    I have enjoyed my visit to your blog - my heart has been uplifted. You have a lovely spirit and I am happy to be your newest follower!
    God bless,

  2. What a lovely post! Also, congratulations for surviving Black Friday! My sister and BIL have worked in retail for years, so I understand how stressful it is for you!
    Happy Pink Saturday,

  3. Thanks for visiting today at The Writer's Reverie, Jenny! Blessings to you and your family as you seek to celebrate Christmas with much joy!

    Miss Kathy

  4. I'm traveling pink links by 3's, I think I've mentioned to you I go by the last number on my link. I was 43 this time. And, going by 3's, I ended up here! Yay! I read all the way to the story about Monica - wow. That's something. I had read on past it w/o praying for them, so I stopped between words and lifted them and y'all up to the Lord.
    Oh, retail and holidays. I've done retail. It was one of my sidejobs from my day job (admin). It's a back breaker and foot ache-er. But thank the Lord for the jobs and even (or especially) the fellowship/witness at work. I so hope you are especially blessed this year - given all you've been through. I'm so glad you have a job. Take care, love ya, Jenn

  5. How fortunate you are to have so many wonderful sisters. There is nothing like sisters, they are such a blessing.

    Happy that your Black Friday went well, it must be a very tiring and exasperating time to be in sales. It sounds as if you deserved a little downtime. Enjoy!
