Today I am choosing to be grateful.
I have found that when I choose to be consciously thankful for all of the little things and focus on the blue sky between the clouds, I am far more content with where I am.
So today, this is my grateful list, in no particular order
~ blueberries – eating them while I type!
~ summer – three more days and it officially arrives in our house
~ Ashley’s new job – good to see my daughter loving what she does and getting paid for it!
~ my new computer – so much faster and a pleasure to work at
~ the fact that Steve is cooking tonight so I can work
~ my lululemon pants – they fit just right!
~ my church family – it’s wonderful to feel connected
~ Peet’s Coffee
~ salted chocolate caramels (with a cup of coffee)
~ Rachel playing the piano at all hours of the day
~ a hearty, snorting, makes-your-belly-hurt laugh (don’t judge me, I snort!)
~ my sister – she understands me
~ God’s patience with me – it is infinite!
I could go on. There are many more things that I am grateful for, but for today, I’m especially grateful for you and the opportunity to share myself through words. What’s on your list?
1 Thess 5:18Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. (NLT)
