This morning I woke up in a state of gratitude. I was so thankful for so many things and spent nearly an hour just listing and speaking out how thankful I am to God and all that He is doing! I also realized that I’m not grateful enough. I don’t find myself just stopping throughout the day thanking God for all I have. Most days I choose to credit myself for what I’ve accomplished and gained. But…that’s gotta change.
This week I am thankful for:
sunshine and picnic lunches
smiles, giggles and hugs from Blake (the cutest 2 year old I know)
grace and mercy when I fail
friends who speak truth to me
a new bottle of Wild Turkey whiskey
the upcoming weekend with friends- both old and new
an amazon delivery with six new books!
a phone call with my dad earlier this week
painful endings that lead to exciting new beginnings
