         The Challenge at Inspiration Avenue this week is all about   "Counting Your Blessings" and What Blesses You!
The first thing that comes to my mind is LOVE, it is woven like a golden thread in all that Blesses me.

                                                               LOVE BLESSES ME

                           (These are handmade collage postcards made by me)

                                              THE BLESSING OF FAMILY & FRIENDS

I think most of the time we would all AGREE that  Family is a Blessing. Friends however,   are the part of my family that I get to choose. Sometimes they are chosen for me and come into my life like angels who fly in from nowhere in time of need.
I believe they come in and out of our lives at devinely appointed times.

Friends never disappear, you may not see them all the time, but you know that are always there.
They are the ones that you can call at 2:00 a.m. for anything.
They always forgive you because they love you the way you are and they know your heart.
Friends cry with you and laugh with you and no matter how full their world is, they always reserve a space for you.
Friends and Family give the Best-est  Hugs, even if they are virtual ones!
Blessings for me come in Showers,    and     Sunshine     and Storms, ...
and they always come as Friends and Family ~*
