It is a new month so time for a new series.  Today is the first day of March and my little ones are counting down the days till St. Patrick’s day.  Hoping this will be the year they catch a little leprechaun in the back yard and strike it rich with his pot of gold.   I think at one time in our lives we all had the dream of finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow and living happily ever after.

As we  live our daily lives we learn that all though money can help reduce stress… it alone can not buy happiness.  It seems no matter how much we have there is never enough, and we can get trapped in the endless whirlwind of what we need or want  next.  Making us feel that what we have is never enough, it tends to be the focus on what want instead of what we have.  The classic… is the glass half full or half empty question?

So this month my goal is to focus on what I have, instead of what I do not…  It does not take long for me to look around and see just how truly blessed I am. I have a roof over my head, a warm bed, a husband who loves me, healthy children, wonderful family, food in the pantry, two vehicles that work most the time :) , the list goes on and on.  But I am going to go even further to look for the things we tend to over look.  For example yesterday my kids were playing with the lotion and made a huge mess.  It made me think when I was pregnant with my oldest our budget was so tight we did not have money for anything extra…. I ran out of lotion and could not afford to buy any.  I was way to proud to ask for help, so I simply went without.  Out of the blue one of my friends gave me a bottle as a gift,  that simple bottle of lotion bought the sunshine into my world that day….  I was so grateful for something simple.  Ten years later thanks to coupons I now have 6 bottles of lotion sitting in my stock pile ready to use…. may be simple but it was a simple blessing.

So we want to hear from you this month….  What is the “pot of gold” in your life? I hope you take this challenge to look for the daily blessing we all have and see just how “Lucky” we are.

At the end of the month, one random comment (on this post) will win a $25 gift card, so we invite you to come back daily and tell us your Daily pot of gold!

My pot of gold is my younger brother. Last month was one of the most difficult times of my life. My brother went to the hospital for breathing trouble (he is 24yrs old). To make a very long story short, he was put on a ventilator and came very close to death 3 times. He was in the hospital for a month, and, at one point, given 2 minutes to live. That was by far the scariest moment of my life. He was put on the critical list in the ICU, with a very small percentage of a chance to live. He was diagnosed with pneumonia, which was caused by a bacteria called Streptococcus. Eventually, the bacteria spread through his blood causing kidney failure. He also suffered form a collapsed lung, among other difficulties. By God’s grace, my brother pulled through! The nurses and doctors call him the “miracle boy”. he is truly my pot of gold. Thank God he is alive and recovering!

I would have to say my “Pot of Gold” is my mother. 3 years ago, I was in an abusive relationship. Once I discovered I was expecting, my mom and I made plans to move me home, to flee the situation. If it had not been for her courageous effort, I don’t think I could have done it. She came down, helped me move, helped me cope, and most of all, was there when I needed her the most. I now have the best relationship with her because of this. I get to raise my wonderful son in a violence-free home, and get to spend time with her each day. If it wasn’t for my mother, I don’t know where I would be today. She has helped me by watching my son so I could finish school and achieve my goal of becoming a Social Worker. I hope that I can give back to my children the way she has given back to me. She is truly my “pot of gold.” Love you, Mom

Mary

My pot of gold is my family. My son (4) can drive me crazy at times when he is pushing the boundaries, but when he snuggles up with me at night to read a story before bed, hearing him say: “Momma, you’re my favorite, I love you” just melts my heart. We are just so blessed to have him, my husband and I have been trying to have another child, so far no success after our miscarriage last summer. We are just praying for God’s timing and know that my family is my pot of gold and I am so much stronger for having my son and my husband in my life.

My pot of gold is finding my best friend after 5 years of seperation. I was really needing her at this time in my life and did everything I could to find her with no luck. I even got my husband to help and he works for the police department so I thought for sure he would find her but no luck there either. So I thought well apperently she is not needed now. MY husband went to check the mail at Christmas time and there sat a letter from her. Not sure how it got to the new address but God knew that she was needed. We have been talking or texting everyday and I am so loving her in my life. She has been through alot with me and it is good to have her back. I thank God everyday that He knows all our needs.

My “pot of gold” would have to be my mothers. My mother-in-law miraculously defeated her battle against Lukemia. I don’t know where I would be without her sweet spirit and ever-helping hand. My mother defeated her fight against a tumor. I know I would be lost without her everlasting love and care for me.

My pot of gold is my the wonderful news that my hudband of 10 yesrs, son (8), and I will be adding a baby girl to our family in August. It’s such a blessing. We are all delighted.

My pot of gold is having a husband that is willing to change. After finding about his addiction problem he is repented and had done a lot to really move forward. The gospel of Jesus Christ brings hope and faith to our lives. I am happy i marry my husband even though he has and addiction…i know that together we can make it!…As i said my pot of gold is his willingness to change for the better of our family

My heart is thankful for the county in which we live! Sure, the cost of living is thru the roof….but, I coupon with everything ounce of energy I’ve got. Our 11 year old sweet boy is on the autism spectrum. Because of the county in which we live, we qualify for the top autism services in the nation. We have accepted that we will never buy a home in our area and that is just fine with us. Our family gets the education, love and attention we need from the leading specialists in autism and that is a blessing that cannot be matched!

Heidi
I am thankful to be alive and-this will be my Pot of Gold! Last night, I awoke after a couple of hours of sleep to discover my throat and tongue were swelling. As mothers, we often don’t want to rush ourselves to a doctor the same way we would our loved ones, let alone the emergency room. My insurance recently increased our emergency room visit co-payment; therefore I was hesitant to go. But when I realized I was too scared to go back to sleep for fear I wouldn’t wake up, I alerted my adult son who was still up at midnight. He took me to the hospital and called my husband who was on his way home from work. The helpful and polite emergency room staff assisted me, made me feel comfortable while giving me an IV (I hate needles, but breathing seemed far more important.).and explained to me what might be happening. I felt an overwhelming sense of peace and knew if my airways ended up blocked, I was in good hands. While the staff was observing me, it made me realize even more than ever that I am so thankful for my health care (increased co-pay or not), the competent doctor and caring nurses that God created for me. After some research, they found out my allergic reaction was from my blood pressure medicine I have taken for over 10 years! My Pot of Gold just got bigger!

Lachelle
I have many pots of gold, one of them is my husband who works so hard to support our family so i can stay home with our children. he also gardens so we have fresh fruits and vegetables. He is a wonderful gardener and works and works at it and doesn’t complain about doing it. He is a wonderful support and I love him with all my heart. Another pot of gold is our two children, six and four. They mean more and more to us every day. (Another pot of gold is fertility that it is available and we have had the money to do it.)

Another pot of gold is the knowledge of the gospel and knowing the Savior loves me so much that he atoned for my sins. I am so thankful to know I have a loving Father in Heaven.


Keep your pot of gold moments coming!!! What are you grateful for?
