Today I need to be thankful...

I know when I am having a "down" day I need to be thankful so here goes...

I am thankful for my children- I am thankful that Miranda is getting better and that she is smart enough to write short stories even if it means she takes over my laptop all day, I am thankful for Austin and his tender heart even when he is crying and having a fit when I make him do chores, I thankful Wade and his inquisitive mind even when he is taking all the knobs off everything in my house with a screwdriver.

I am thankful for my home- even the 28 stairs that need to be vacuumed

I am thankful for clothes to wear- even the pile of laundry that never seems to go away

I am thankful for my furbabies- even my puppy that eats my good shoes

I am thankful for snow- even when I slip and fall in it

I am thankful for food to eat- even when I have to shop for it and that it creates dirty dishes

I am thankful for the gospel- even when I have to teach primary

I am thankful for all of you no even on this one. ;O)

Great post Carin- there are many days I need to be more thankful instead of feeling sorry for myself & the things that seem to be going wrong. I'm thankful for you!!!

Count your blessings, Name them one by one! I know that you know the tune to that one. :~)

We all need to stop and count our blessings more often. Thanks for the reminder.

How is Grandma doing?

This post will give me something to think about all day. What a reminder about what's really important. Here's another - I'm thankful that I have kids who are happy and active and busy doing good stuff - so I really don't mind driving them around so much. Thanks!
