Just the other night when I went to bed I was thinking of a million things. So, I got up to write something down and grabbed a notebook. It happened to be a journal that I had started last year during Lent. I had decided that I didn't want to give up chocolate or bread again for Lent. Instead, I would write down 5 things each night that I was thankful for. It was interesting to see what I had wrote down. There were things like being thankful for smooth shaved legs and sometimes being thankful that I only ate one brownie instead of the whole pan. But the one that I wrote often was that I was thankful for a husband that loved me. I will always be thankful for that.
There were sometimes that I was thankful just to talk to each of our kids that day. One day I was thankful to see the first hummingbird. There were days that I was thankful for the boys taking long naps or Taylor doing his homework by his self.
I challenge you to write down things that you are thankful for each day. Even if you are the only one that reads it. Imbrace each thing that makes you happy. You just never know when your life will be changed forever. And you will need to always remember the things that made you the happiest.
Today I can write down in my journal that I am forever grateful for the awesome family and friends that I have. And a husband that loves me forever.
