My thoughts this morning: 'we need another bathroom', 'this house is getting too small', 'I don't have enough time', 'I can't keep things clean', 'it's too noisy', 'I can't afford...'
Sometimes the complaints want to take over.
Today helped me to pause and show some gratitude for the many riches that I have, and I hope to carry this thankfulness with me to finish out my very blessed year.
I am Thankful for...
who do things like take pictures of me with my clothes on backward, inside out, sideways, etc.
(they really have to do this way toooooo much)
more birthday cake,
the gift of coffee,
dinner with Ms. J,
cooking in the classroom,
preparing the table,
the sweetest second family,
homemade baby turkey bows,
personalized table settings by Ms. Cousin O,
(carlee #sweetbabygirl, darren #fantasyfootballguy, Connor #allovertheplace)
having the best table setting,
soulfully good name tag,
(who made) this delicious bread,
'find the banana' word game,
winning the football game,
all the wonderful social interactions,
(don't they look like young versions of superstars?)
glamorous city cousin,
interrupting the football game with a dance party,
help with the Christmas decor,
all the ornaments on one branch,
and finishing the brownies with a Hallmark Holiday movie.
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. James 1:17
I am grateful for you all!
