Thankfulness is...

....being up with my little one in the night.  I'm so very thankful for him.  I love cuddling with him and I love taking care of him.  I can sleep later.

....running even when it is hard.  I'm thankful I am able to run, that I have the time and that I can take Stafford with me.

.....cleaning up after the dog made a mess of dirty diapers.  I am thankful I have a vacuum.....and a dog.

....putting away laundry.  I'm thankful for a working washer and dryer.  I'm thankful I have clothes!

....spending time reading my Bible.  I am SO thankful that I am allowed to do this in our country. 

....spending weeks apart from my husband.  I thankful I have a wonderful husband.  I'm thankful for the sacrifice he makes for our country.  I'm thankful that he provides for our family.

....fellowship with our friends.  I'm thankful for the amazing people we have in our lives here!  I'm thankful that they love me.  I'm thankful for how sweet they are to Stafford.  I'm thankful that they are real and challenge me.

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
I Thessalonians 5:16-18

Are you rejoicing over your blessings today?  Sometimes they are disguised as laundry, 3 am wake ups, and troublesome pets!  Look deeper into your day and thank God for where he has put you today, no matter where that is!



I'm SO super thankful for the Little Guy that I had to share his smile!!  Have a wonderful day!!!!!

What a great post! I am reading a book for Bible study right now called Choosing Gratitude by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and I think it would be right up your alley. :)
