Gratitude

Okay, enough of the whining from me. I didn't even think that my last post was quite so down, but everyone left me such sweet and encouraging comments that I must have sounded like I needed them! (I did!) Thank you guys, you are so sweet and make me feel so encouraged.
I am thankful for you.
I am thankful for irl friends have taken a kid or 2 for a few hours. Who have invited me for coffee or given me a well timed hug. And thankful for friends who have needed me, helping someone else is the best way to not feel sorry for yourself.
I am thankful for my mil who has taken the time to come for lunch with us or drop in and visit while Brent has been gone. She truly loves me and I love her and that is an awesome thing.
I am thankful that my hubby is working, and that his job is allowing us to recover from some difficult financial times.
I am thankful for my hubby and his willingness to do what needs to be done. Even when his wife makes it difficult.
I am thankful for each and every one of my amazing kids. And for the smiles they woke up with after a long night filled with coughing and tears.
I am thankful that I am going to see my mommy and my sisters for my birthday! I bet I will even get cake!
I am thankful for spring sunshine that soaks into my soul as I go for long walks with the kids.
I am thankful for lattes:)
I am thankful that I lost 3lbs last week...
I am so thankful that God's strength is enough to sustain me and his grace covers me in all my failings and weakness.
I could keep going all day, and this exercise is totally changing my outlook on the day, but baby needs me.
What are you thankful for?

  6. Given that yesterday was Easter. I am thankful for redemption and resurrection! Beauty from ashes and Life from death! Even when I am the furthest from deserving it. I am thankful for Grace!
