We are to be fluent in thanksgiving – even after the table is cleared off. -Lisa Bewere
In the spirit of the season, I thought I’d list a few of the things I’m most grateful for (in no particular order). Sharing our gratitude is a sure way to spark an attitude of gratitude throughout a community, so please let me know what you’re grateful for as well!
I’m grateful for….
Jesus’ love and sacrifice
Steven, my husband
Parents who love and support me
Carmen, my sister, friend, and mentor
Anna, the friend that knows me better than anyone
My “gram” girls. Wonderful friends brought together by instagram.
Each and every one of my followers and readers. You make me feel like I matter.
My car, it’s nice and has bluetooth so I can effortlessly nerd out with podcasts.
Google technology. The cloud is everything.
iPhone earbuds. Hands free talking is bomb.
Black Leggings….all of them.
My Gray sweatshirt that fits just right (#thriftfind)
Decaf coffee (and a mom that taught me to love it black)
Koala Bear. Just know he’s special.
My phone so I can always be in touch with people I love.
Do Not Disturb Settings so I can always be in touch with people I love.
My Barnwood Table (made by the Mr.)
Being homeschooled #nerd
Creating magical Christmas seasons every year with my husband. We’re both obsessed.
Laughing until I cry. All the times this has happened.
Being a Southerner. Yes, it’s all it’s cracked up to be. #grits
Fire Pit Nights
Hallmark Christmas Movies #admitityoulikethemtoo
A husband who is always ready to say “yes” to new adventures (moving, jobs, travel, etc)
Grace upon grace.
Peace over fear.
Promise of eternity.
Access and finances for food.
A de-cluttered home. #eliminateexcess
A job I seriously love
Living near the beach
My ADD tendencies. Seriously, they’ve gotten me where I am.
Being short. I always travel comfortably.
Living in 6 different cities in the past 10 years
Travels in europe
Growing up going camping
Knowing how to change my oil, but having the finances to pay someone to do it
Being an American. (and everyone in unison: “I’m proud to be an American….”)
Knowing how to cook from scratch
Walks…both by myself and people I love.
Social Media. It get’s a bad wrap, but can totally be used for good.
Physical health & strength
Nature (flowers, plants, sunset, my christmas cactus) which reminds me who’s in control
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, and a beautiful Christmas season.
