Thanks for your comments yesterday friends! Was inspiring reading your lists. Got a couple of today's thankful things from some of you ;)

10 grateful things for Tuesday:

1) my sight, I can't imagine not being able to see life and the world around me.
2) creativity
3) my hands and feet and brain - they all work.. for the most part ;)
4) music
5) freedom
6) as of last wednesday, new wood floors in our home :)
7) that my mom got through her cancer
8) rain, because I love it oh so much!
9) forgiveness
10) my story - where I am at in life and the journey that got me here.

Okay, this is actually really a lot of fun. I am not struggling with thinking of new things everyday to be thankful for... though I admit I was a bit skeptical and thought it'd be hard to come up with things. If anything, it's opening up a whole new perspective. This guy knows what he is talking about! ;) What are you thankful for today?

16 hello's:

  1. I think this is a beautiful new way to look at life & the world. =)

  2. I love the positiveness in your post. I love the rain, too, and I also feel glad that your mom got through cancer. Even if I don't know you personally, I just love feeling how you feel. :)

  3. I'm so glad your mom got through cancer! I hope all is well in that department and always will be!
    Also, hard wood floors are one of my favorite things!

  4. I am thankful for Yoga, it clears my mind.

  5. That I survive Life's bumps and flows and can still smile, shake my head and learn. That my sons have become men I truly admire. I actually like to be by myself at times and years ago I would have felt lonely. Reading is a joy to me. People have to very much to give to this world.

  6. I love that you are grateful for your life story. I think sometimes I take that for granted the most.

  8. I love your last one.. we all have our own unique stories.. and each one is special and full of importance. xo

  9. today i'm thankful for 1: pets and their unconditional love and the joy that they bring! 2: food - there is so much good food in this world and i can literally get giddy when i'm discovering (and enjoying) a new dish. 3: water - not everyone has it in such abundance. 4: hot showers - not everyone has this. i savor EVERY hot shower. how lucky we are! 5: my bed - the ability to fall into a cushy, comfy bed. 6: my church - the support and humility of this "body of Christ" that knows they are not perfect and knows how to have fun! 7: hot coffee - so comforting in the morning and such a luxury. 8: books - so much to read and learn 9: my education - i've been beyond blessed. 10: God's Word (the Bible) for being alive and guiding us today.

  10. Thank you for reminding me to be thankful this morning. I love reading your posts and I am thankful for your mom too. Though I don't know her, my mom has been through the same struggle. As a daughter it is heart aching.
