Maybe it's the sunny weather. Maybe it's the great sermon I heard today. Maybe it's the time I spent with friends this weekend. But my heart overflows...I can get so focused on all the different hats I wear - wife, mother, daughter, teacher, believer, friend, meal planner, housekeeper. I can let today's challenges stifle my joy. Back when Oprah was preaching an attitude of gratitude, I kept a gratitude journal like a million others, I am sure. But eventually I found myself writing the same things and the journal just became another bullet on my list. It's collecting dust in my nightstand. Maybe it's time to get it back out or better yet, I'll use my virtual one. :)
1) Two days off with my favorite guy
2) Parker's toothless grin
3) Macy calling Jillian her sissy
4) Easy conversations with friends even when the topics are hard
What are you grateful for? I would love to know!
