A Week of Being Grateful : #1





I have a bad habit. I am a negative person. This week I will try not to be so negative by focusing on things that I am so grateful for. I know it's important to aw knowledge the ways in which we are blessed. It's good for the soul to let some sunshine into our lives every now and then to chase away the clouds. Here is my first ray of sunshine: my family.
I am so blessed to have a loving husband and three amazing munchkins. I am even blessed for the trials we have as a family. I was watching the Today show this morning, they were doing a special about St Judes hospital. Watching all those amazing children with horrendous illnesses, I couldn't help but feel so grateful for my children's asthma. I am also glad that the biggest fight my honey and I had today was about being on time for something. I'm grateful that the worst word my children call each other is Twit. I'm grateful that we sit together to eat meals. I'm grateful for bedtime rituals, cuddling after prayers, made up stories and Friday night movie night. I love the rare chance I get to have a date with my husband, or just holding hands. I love warm sweet smelling baby breath against my chest when he's falling asleep. I'm glad we still all enjoy being together as a family. I am grateful that I have these precious people in my life.
