well, thanksgiving is already here and I am still wondering how that happened. Looking at the date of my last blog also makes me wonder what happened, life I guess. School, work, sports, laundry.... life. It is good though and I have finally found a moment to reflect on what I am thankful for. I will admit this post was inspired by the sermon I heard at church today. How God wants us to be thankful in all things, even the things we don't like in our lives. How we need to look at them differently and praise God for them so here is what I am thankful for.
I am thankful for the cold wind because I have a warm house to come home to.
I am thankful for grocery shopping because I can provide my family with yummy meals.
I am thankful for a dog begging at the door for a walk because I can take him.
I am thankful for grass stained knees because my son can run and play.
I am thankful for sticky counters because I was able to make cookies with my kids.
I am thankful for piles of laundry because my family is home.
I am thankful for piles of dishes because family and friends were here.
I am thankful for weeds to pull because I get to enjoy my flowers.
I am thankful for long weeks because weekends are so fun.
I am thankful for whining children because it means they still sleep under my roof at night.
I am thankful for a snoring husband because he is home with me.
I am thankful for a full calendar because it means a full life.
I am thankful for exhaustion at the end of the day because it means I am fulfilling my purpose.
I am thankful to be a wife, mother, daughter, aunt, sister, and friend because it means I have all of you in my life.
