there is SO MUCH to be thankful for...at all times
i can't help but be in awe of who He is when i am thanking Him for His gifts
thankfulness stomps out the negative thoughts
thankfulness creates smiles when there was an inevitable sigh
thankfulness precedes worship
i think that thankfulness takes awareness, breathing deep, living life slowly...and sometimes that's difficult.
life sometimes feels like a sprint.
life creates blinders that are easy to wear all the time.
life is busy.
life is hard.
but the moments i choose to take the time to breathe a prayer of thanks for...
the crying at 2am that means I have a baby who is able to live at home with me
the never ending dishes in the sink that means we enjoyed a meal together
the toy that I just sat on that means I have a 3 year old who loves using her imagination
the dirty clothes in the basket that means we have been outside enjoying the sunshine
the whining for something to eat & drink that means she knows she is loved & will be taken care of
the list could go on and on - if I take the time to see it that way...then life is abundant and that's what He said He came for...
taking those thoughts captive...
