Thankful Grateful Blessed – A story of gratitude and thankfulness for everything in my life.
We are a blessed people, Amen? It’s more apparent the older I get, the more I see, the more I hear, the more I pay attention. At times I have to stop myself from looking at the petty frustrations in my life. Like my blog that stopped working this week. Or the fact that my hubby couldn’t be home for supper. Or that we had a melt down over homework.
In the grand scheme of things, this is small. There are people starving all over the world. There are people enslaved in human trafficking, which is just so sad! Go to A21 to read more about their campaign to fight against this. My friends, there are big problems all around us.
So, at times, I pause to reflect. In my little gratitude journal, I write all the good and precious gifts that are granted to me personally.
- That wonderful aroma of coffee.
- The orange leaves falling.
- My youngest curling up on my lap (still)
- An awesome text from my Dad.
- Surprise treat after work from my husband.
It’s contagious. Sometimes when I start writing, I just keep writing. Also, I purchased some simple notebooks for the kids and last year they each started their own as well. I believe it’s great practice for them as well to slow down and remember all the good things we have been given.
Have you ever took the time to write in a gratitude journal?
I was totally inspired by Ann Voskamp’s 1000 gifts. One of this decade’s greatest books? Haven’t read it? You must! ?❤
Some days, my outlook is dreary.
And I just want to write repeatedly
The struggle is real.
But… on to the fun stuff (that isn’t food)!
