Chicken Soup for the Soul: Count Your Blessings: Review & 2 giveaways!

Our economy is really going on a downhill slope lately, and so many people are being affected with loss of hours of pay, loss of jobs/homes, and just feeling the emptiness of the pocketbook. Chicken Soup for the Soul released a new book: Count Your Blessings which is a great book that will help lift your spirits. Count Your Blessings is filled with over 101 stories to give you a reminder that tomorrow is a new day, and there is always something to be thankful for. In Count Your Blessings you will be touched by stories about heading into each day with a positive attitude, how to express gratitude, having & keeping the faith, finding happiness during adversity and MORE! This book is so inspirational, as are all the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. The contents of "Count Your Blessings," has 10 sections compiled of approximately 10-11 stories. Here are the titles of the main sections: Expressing Gratitude, Back to Basics, Recovering from Adversity, Silver Linings, The Joy of Giving, Attitude is Everything, I've Got What I Need, Thank My Lucky Stars, A New Perspective and Having Faith.
One of my favorite quotes from this book is this, "Every survival kit should include a sense of humor." ~Author Unknown I like that thought, because with laughter and smiling present, it is a lot harder to be down and negative.
I recommend this book to you. I think that the Chicken Soup for the Soul: Count Your Blessings book is a perfect read for our economic downfall and hard times. This book is very inspirational and moving.
WIN IT!

I love it when my kiddos do something funny and make me laugh when I am least expecting it!

I have a daily devotional I read to put my mind in a better place. A good cup of tea works too.

Today I feel blessed for wonderful parents that have really made me what I am today. They have showed me how to love and now I get to show my children. I will be sad when this giveaway ends. It is my daily reminder to be thankful for my blessings. :)

I am so blessed that we made it in the snow to my son's doctors appointment and he has gained enough weight to put him on the regular weight chart!
