I definitely need to do my Thankful Thursday post today! As you guys know, it has been kind of a rough week! So, it's always nice to stop and think of the things for which we're thankful. I think for this one, I'm going to re-visit the idea of one of my old Facebook posts. I said something like this:
When I'm faced with another pile of dishes, I will be thankful that we have food to eat on them.
When I have MORE laundry to wash and fold, I'll be thankful that we have clothes to wear.
When I have to clean up the same toys over and over and over, I will be thankful that my kids are healthy enough to play with them.
When there is dirt and mud on the floor, I will be thankful that the people in my house enjoy being outside.
When my husband comes home later than he said, I will be thankful that he came home.
It is amazing how many things we actually take for granted. I know that I take things for granted. It's easy when you see them every second, every minute, every hour of every day. I will always be thankful for those things, even if I have to sit down and "remind" myself that I am thankful for them!
"Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."--1 Thessalonians 5:18 (ESV)
