31 Days of Peace, Day 11

Thankful Thursdays 
Though the week has been busy and my mind is tired, there is always much to be thankful for. I couldn't pass up the chance to make a new list of gratitude for this week. It's a few minutes of peace in an otherwise hectic week. Here's what I'm thankful for this week:

 1. I may feel taken for granted sometimes with the lack of pleases and thank-yous from the kids, when I see on TV how young animals act with their mothers, I can't help but smile. I am thankful for my two little bear cubs.
2. Being able to see and appreciate the beauty in the world. Flowers and colorful leaves make me dance inside!
3. Having friends who connect me to places all over the United States, and other countries.
4. Warmth. The warmth of a bath or sipping hot cider or wearing a wool sweater.
5. A husband who loves me no matter what, even when I lose it!
6. Sipping red wine on the couch after the kids go to bed.
7. A visit from an old friend.
8. The love I feel knowing that a friend has cried over my absence.
9. The shadows of leaves dancing on the walls inside my house.
10. Seeing my husband's truck pull up at the end of the day.

What are you thankful for this week?

  1. At this moment, I am thankful for a good friend who watched Julia so I could relax and get my hair done. :) I am thankful for my home, a place filled with laughter and love. I am thankful that I have so many more things to be thankful for!

  2. Nice post! We all have so much to be grateful for each day if we only stop and think about it.
