219. RUNNING for 45 minutes! NO walking AND I did 4 miles!!
220. last day of work.
221. opportunity to be a friend.
222. frustrating circumstances that force me to be patient.
223. upcoming trip to visit my son & my sister.
224. restful weekend.
225. chores accomplished.
226. a good night’s sleep.
227. things I cannot explain.
228. blog comments that encourage.
229. tears of joy.
230. friends like Stacey & Natalie, from whom I have learned so much.
231. the chance to say…Thank you, Jesus.
When I woke up this morning, I was a little down…long story and I am not going there. I had decided I wasn’t going to post this morning, but since I will be out of town for a week beginning on Wednesday and posting may be hit or miss, I decided I should go ahead with my gratitude list. Guess what?!? I felt better once I got started. Just a few minutes of focusing on thankfulness and my attitude can change. Boy, am I glad the Lord isn’t as fickle as me!
By the way, Stacey is hosting a giveaway from her new Etsy Shop.
Lord, thank you for the opportunity to share my gratitude list. Thank you for pushing me this morning, pushing me to take a minute and add to my list. It is easy for me to get bogged down in the yuck and lose site of you and what is really important. Thank you again for the push. Thank you for your blessings in my life, please be with my family and friends today. Especially be with Annesta as she enters the last week before her daughter’s wedding…please gift her with a calm and peaceful week and give her the grace to enjoy the process.
Thank you friends for taking the time to stop by. I hope you have a lovely day! You can read more on the gratitude community over at Ann’s place. It will be worth your time!
