Carrie Underwood Counts Her Blessings

The mother of two has always been big on balancing family life and work, ensuring she and her husband, Mike Fisher, can navigate the ups and downs to remain focused on what's important.

"I remember when we first found out we were gonna have him [Isaiah], it [was] like, 'How are we gonna do this? Our lives are so crazy as it is,' " she told PEOPLE Magazine. "But you just make room, and you learn how important that family time is, and to be able to spend time and carve out some of that and maybe get to go on vacation and maybe get to go on a cruise — that stuff is so important to, like I said, make time for family. That's what it's all about."
