My first 7 days of Thankfulness

Thursday, November 07, 2013

I have been inspired by many of my friends to share what we are thankful for this month.  I first want to say what I am about to share is a daily, monthly, and yearly thing for me.

Working backwards here and in to important order:
Day 7 - I am Eternally thankful for my husband everyday of our life together.

Day 6 - For the most amazing staff and faculty at RVGS.  Everyday they choose to teach, enrich, and challenge my three kids.  Plus, put with a not too intelligent crazy mom.

Day 5 - For all the jobs I had as a teenager and young adult.  If not for the different roads I would have met Tom.

Day 4 - For my dad and his love for my mom.  For his unconditional love for my sister and myself.  Even though we have not spent much time together the times we do talk are forever etched in my heart.  I love you Dad/Frank/Grandpa

Day 3 - For my mom and my sister.  Yes, they share a spot in my heart.  We have gone through so much and laugh so hard at things I just can not imagine my life without both of you.  No matter how far apart we live you are always in my heart.

Day 2 - For my kids.  I have been very blessed with three amazing kids.  I have tried to imagine my life without them. It is pretty meaningless and empty.  I tell my kids because of them and their daddy I am richer than riches people in this planet.  I do not need money or material things.  A hug, a picture, a smile, a moment that will be etched forever in my heart when Alzheimer's takes over my mind.

Day 1 - I know this should be on top of my list.  But dear Lord, Jesus, God, Heavenly Father......You have been so present in my life from age 11 and eve though my heart was on 100% in belief then and my darkest hours I know now You were and are!!  If not for You and Your constant presence in my life I would be truly lost.  It took my a long time to open my heart and it was Your of children that open my heart and made me see You in every aspect or my life. nI may not get down on my knees every day, but You are always in my heart, on my mind, and I try to make sure the word that come out of my mouth does not hurt Your heart.

Now, I have completely opened my heart to the world I pray no one sees me as weak or a hyporcrit.  This is me.

    Your gratitude is beautiful. Clearly, your priorities are in the right order. You know what matters and live your life that way. That's integrity. Thanks for this beautiful list!

    why would anyone see you as weak or a hypocrite. I think it takes some strength to admit that you are thankful and grateful. Believe me, that sentiment, a simple thank you, is NOT said enough
