Thankful. A family gratitude blog

Saturday, November 17, 2012

For our Sunny challenge this week we have to post 7 days of gratitude. I keep a family gratitude journal at home and it's a wonderful way to wrap up the day with my girls. Here are 7 days of thankfulness.

Today I am grateful for...

☆ That people who want to be free are going to get help...a long time coming. - Jim

☆ To go outside, and God, and really, really, really, really, really morning time, and I thank you for God again. -Marlo....and for Mama gone...

☆ I am thankful for God and I am thankful for my Jesus. - Lucy

☆ I am thankful for my church, and no matter how long I've been away I am always welcomed back home. - Kathy

☆ I am also thankful for Jim, he's the most understanding husband and accepts me exactly as I am...bad stuff and all. - Kathy

☆ I am thankful for resale shops. -Kathy

☆ I am thankful for my daughters and even though most times I feel like a failure as a mom I get a chance to learn and grow every day, and every day is an adventure. -Kathy

☆ I am thankful for you here at my house. - Marlo (she changed her mind and decided she wants her mom at her home now.) - Marlo

☆ I am thankful for my awesome mom and my awesome dad and of course my awesome awesome sister and get walking people. - Lucy

☆ I am thankful for my amazing daughter Lucy who goes to walk class with me and is a super walker! She inspires me to be better (and brave) every day. - Kathy

☆ I am thankful for God and the park and I'm thankful for my dogs and my dad and mama and myself and then louie and sleep a lot and for Lucy. - Marlo

☆ I am thankful for my self and I am thankful for the whole wide world. - Lucy

☆ I am thankful for 6 AM wake up calls even though they are hard...I get to spend more time with my girls. - Kathy

☆ I am thankful for my friends. I have so many good friends. - Kathy

☆ I am thankful for my family. They are always there for me and support me. - Kathy

☆ I am thankful that in January I will get to meet one of. Y best friends, who I met right here on spark, and run a half marathon with her. I feel like I'm in a dream, pinch me! - Kathy

And I am always thankful for the chance to start over.

    Practising gratitude is good for one's soul and state of mind!

I'm thankful for central heating, my washing machine, a nice warm shower, being warm, dry and fed, my friends, being able to run and swim, the telephone and the internet, birdsong and my duvet! (and plenty more beside).
