Starting my Gratitude List

For a few weeks I have been reading some of my favorite bloggers Gratitude posts on Mondays. After I read their lists I pause and try to remember all of the many blessings that I receive. After reading a few more today I decided that I really need to join Ann Voskamp's Gratitude Community.

Every day God leaves His fingerprints on my life from beautiful sunrises to a little girl that looks at me with her great big brown eyes and says, "I love you my favorite mommy".

holy experience

I am going to start this week with ten things that I am praising God for today.

#1 Selling our house to a mother that can use the front porch like I did to pray for her family.

#2 Making memories living in Grammy & Grandpa's house for the summer.

#3 Three sisters that know they will always have each other, even though they fight sometimes.

#4 A husband that works hard to provide for his family.

#5 Waking up in the morning to see my mom reading in her Bible.

#6 A sister who will only live a few blocks away instead 200 miles.

#7 A beautiful new Bible to journal in for my daughter.

#8 Mothers of Daughters that know exactly how I am feeling on the days that are filled with drama.

#9 Watching small town fireworks and parade with my family.

#10 Riding bike with my girls to the same places that I rode my bike as a little girl.

What are you giving thanks for today?

I have to say I feel a twinge of envy reading your list and seeing the picture.... of "my" park. :) I grew up thinking it WAS my park since it was literally in my back yard. ;) Of course, being that it was in your FRONT yard, as was the pool, I guess that makes it YOUR park (and pool) too. Oh, the I miss the pool. Congratulations on selling the house, and good luck with the transition. Moving is never fun, but you're certainly blessed to be going somewhere familiar.
