Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for an "attitude of gratitude" and how it is such a boost to my days. I try to look for little blessings in each day {a great parking spot, a funny thing one of the kids said, a beautiful fall tree filled with colorful leaves} and then stop for a second and think about them, be thankful for them, thank the Lord for bringing them into my day and making me aware enough to notice them. I still get crabby and there are definitely plenty of things in my day that I do not consider to be blessing and do not feel gratitude for, but overall if you try to look for blessings in each day {big and small} and live your life feeling grateful for all you have around you, it can really make a difference! So today I'm thankful for being thankful! There is so much in my life that I have to be thankful for, how could I not be?

  1. Shana-
    After reading your earlier post today (and seeing your status on Facebook last night) I was afraid we might not have a Thankful Thursday. So I was quite excited to see your thankfulness in the midst of the sibling squabbles. Is there any connection with the fact that Thankful Thursday was written while the majority of you children were at school? =)

    You're the greatest and your kiddos are blessed to have such a wonderful mom!


    P.S. I also loved joining you on the walk to/from preschool.


Thanks for the comments . . . they make my day!
