Continuing with all the things I am thankful for this week. Pondering on the things you are thankful for just makes you in a better mood. It has a way of positioning you with a thankful heart toward God and changing your outlook on the things going on in your world. I've decided to take all of the things I am thankful for, write them down, and pull them out when I am having "one of those weeks" just to remind myself have incredibly blessed I am.
#8 I am blessed by and thankful for my church family. I really can call them family. They are so amazing, encouraging and fun to be around.
#9 Thankful for Gracie....yes, I know she is "just a dog" but for right now she is my child and I am sure any pet owner can understand. She's precious.
#10 Thanking God that I have a job. Not just a job, but a job that brings me joy and satisfaction. 85% of the days I love what I do and I love that I get to make a difference in the lives of children. And, I am thankful that parents entrust me with so much time with their children.
#11 I adore and love my southern family and I am very thankful for them! Thankful that even thought we live 1,000 miles apart we still know what is going on in each others lives and that distance doesn't matter when it comes to family!
#12 I'm grateful and made better that I get to do ministry with my best friend and boyfriend. I am blessed by watching him serve the church and use his gifts to serve God and His people.
#13 Thankful for coffee....This might sound ridiculous, but if you know me or see me in the morning you should be thankful I have coffee too ;0)
#14 Thankful that I have a home I call my own!
