Weeks of Gratitude

holy experience

It's been awhile since I posted my gratitude list. It's not that I haven't been adding to it, I have just had busy Mondays that have kept me from blogging. This list includes items from the past few weeks.

272 ~ Christian friends to laugh and cry with

273 ~ brownie pie with ice cream

274 ~ baking cookies

275 ~ watching football with my son

276 ~ napping with my girls

277 ~ chai tea

278 ~ a hot shower

279 ~ a gingerbread house and the time spent decorating it with my kids

280 ~ flavored coffee

281 ~ hot chocolate

282 ~ spending time just talking with the kids

283 ~ our family advent time

284 ~ each unique snowflake falling from the sky

285 ~ convenience foods that help when I haven't planned supper

286 ~ Hearing the kids play a new game called Bop-It

287 ~ Internet to help make it easier to pick things out for the new bathroom

288 ~ Husband home early so I can run errands by myself

289 ~ a good book

290 ~ eyes to read that book

291 ~ slippers

292 ~ warm clothes

293 ~ my in-laws watching the kids while I run around and pick out things for our bathroom remodel

294 ~ 4 wheel drive in the snow

295 ~ girls screams turned to giggles as daddy scares them

How about you? Have you tried gratitude? It will change the way you look at everything around you. It will help you not take everything for granted. Everything you receive is a good gift from your heavenly Father. Start your own list and be blessed.

It is good to give thanks to the Lord.
Psalm 92:1
