List 5 Things

Postby little_tigress » Thu Aug 01, 2013 7:35 pm

So a long time ago I heard someone, and I can't remember who, say that each day you should take a moment and thank God for at least 5 things in your life to help nurture an attitude of thankfulness and worship towards Him. I loved the idea. I haven't always been very consistent with it, but when I stop and really think about the blessings He's placed in my life, it always amazes me.

So I want to encourage you all to think about the blessings in your own life by creating this thread.

1. A great MIL who is so great with my son.
2. A loving husband
3. An adorable son
4. Living near-ish (one state away) to family again
5. The internet to keep me sane, since I love my son and being a SAHM has its perks, but I need contact with the outside world and don't currently have any real friends locally.

1. A brother who makes an awesome brunch
2. Blogger for making blogs so easy
3. AC. I don't use it often but when I do its like that first taste of a cold Coke. So good.
4. Water in a bottle. Seriously, not having to drink tap is one of God's great gifts
5. The technology to print pictures. I just filled a few of my empty frames and now get to see my family's faces looking at me. Sounds creepy but its totally a warm fuzzy feeling. I even have a picture of me and Shari to add to my bare walls!

Today I am thankful for:
1) My husband. GOODNESS he takes such good care of me.
2) My glasses. Today they are preventing this headache from getting worse.
3) This forum. Helps me keep in touch with certain friends. Since I am terrible about calling people regularly :(
4) Coffee. 'Nuff said.
5) Medicine. I went through a (very short) phase where I didn't want to take medicine for my headaches. But then someone told me that it takes the same faith to take the medicine and wait for the pain to go away. Now every time I take some, I thank God for giving people the brains to create such wonderfulness.

1. Sleep. After 20+ years of insomnia, I'll never cease to be thankful for it. Its a beautiful gift.
2. Prayer. I wouldn't survive without it.
3. The Bible. As cheesy or cliche as it may sound.
4. my birds beautiful singing. I love waking up to that sound in the morning.
5. KS. I get to see her again tomorrow :D I've missed that kid.
