Thankful Thursday

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)
