Be Grateful...

Yesterday, I went to my son's Primary where he was giving a talk. The primary president was talking to the children about starting the new year out being grateful. She said each child there should be able to think of at least 5 things they were thankful for, and the older kids could probably think of at least 10 things. Then she said the grownups could think of things all day and all night long and still not stop because of all the things they are grateful for.

It got me thinking.

My attitude lately as been such that I would probably have a difficult time filling a half hour with things I am grateful for. Not that I don't have much to be thankful for, but because I think I have been having a bit of a pity party lately, it's been more about things that are bothering me than things I am blessed with.

So, I'm going to try to snap out of it.

Starting today, I am going to post this entire week about things I am grateful for.

So, here it goes:

Day 1:

I am thankful that I have a heated home and don't have to be out in that freezing cold.

I am glad my dog didn't throw up all night after eating my husband's earplug, for the 3rd time this week!

I am grateful for some peace and quite today

I am glad my husband has a good job and provides for all our needs so I can be home taking care of our family and our house.

I'm thankful for Advil which took the edge off the ginormous headache I woke up with first thing this morning!

Ok, that's enough for today... don't want to use up all my thankfulls too soon!

I'm also grateful that my dog didn't throw up last night. It happens a few times/week. I really should be grateful every morning that it doesn't happen.
