Welcome February ~ One Of My Favorite Months

Good Morning and a happy Friday to you. Today is the first day of February and a very special month too. This is a favorite month of mine, filled with holidays and special days of celebration, and for me Valentine's Day is extra special. I love these little red carnations and thought what a perfect way to welcome in the month. Recently Michelle tagged me to share Why It's Great To Be we go......
1 . ~ I am blessed to wake each morning to another beautiful day.

2. ~ I am blessed knowing I'm never alone and My Heavenly Father is always with me.

3. ~ I am happily blessed to be married to a wonderful loving and caring man.

4. ~ I am blessed with a kind, generous, loving daughter.

5. ~ I am blessed with good health and five years cancer free.

6. ~ I am blessed with a warm comfortable home.

7. ~ I have a happy deposition and this is a true blessing.

8. ~ I am blessed to accept what comes my way, to keep going and never give up.

9. ~ I am blessed with good friends who have seen me at my best and worst and stood by me.

10. ~ I am blessed with the love for animals and a desire to care for as many little loves as possible.

Well there you go. I'm tagging Priscilla at Priscilla's Cottage.

Did you remember February 1st is National Wear Red Day? Statics say heart disease is the #1 killer for women (I always thought it was breast cancer) so love yourself enough to take care of your heart. Some tips for a healthy heart...

1. Increase your activity level, take a daily walk.

2. Drop a few pounds, if need be.

3. Less salt in your diet.

Numbers 1 an 2 apply to me, so I'd better get busy. Remember to wear red today, in fact wear a little red each day this month.

Have a wonderful day and weekend...Hugs, Linda

Good Afternoon Linda,
I love the new look you have. I really love your new Header. It is so beautiful. I enjoyed reading your Meme. "THANK YOU" for sharing those things with us. I did know about today being National Wear Red Day. I have it posted on my post today as well. February is a Special Month too. I love it because for some reason it seems more Romantic. I guess because it has Valentine's Day in it. Take care my friend and have a great day and weekend. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Hi Linda, I never thought of February as a good month but now that you brought it to my attention..besides holidays my dh has a birthday and this is the month of our anniversary...I should pay better attention I guess. I have always thought of Feb. as the last true month of winter since in March the snow melts so quickly....I have a new perspective now...thanks, Dianntha

Your new look is beautiful. And your blessings are plenty. Many a fool doesn't look for his blessings. You're smart enough to recognize yours.
