thankfulness


image via

today i am thankful for my life. where god has us right now, and where he is going to have us in the future.

i'm thankful for my husband. my hard working, motivated, incredibly good looking husband. i'm thankful he not only loves me unconditionally, but pushes me to be the best me i can be. 

i'm thankful for my family. the one i was born into and the one i married into. why god wanted to give me rock star family and rock star in-laws i'll never know. the friendships i've made with those crazy people...seriously blows me away.

i'm thankful for my jobs. watching cute little babies some days, and watching people get married on others. seriously? do these even count as work??

i'm thankful for moments of stillness. moments made for reflecting and praying and thinking and rejoicing.

i'm thankful for my savior. for filling each nook and cranny of life with light and joy and blessings. even when life is hard and the bad times keep on coming...i know i can just hold on because the storm will never get too hard to weather, and the sun will be there to greet me in the end.

what are you thankful for today?

  3. Being thankful is such an important quality in a person. Today I am thankful to be alive and to be healthy. I am thankful for my boyfriend who is just so amazing and Godly and gosh...I dont know why I was blessed with him. It doesn't make sense to me, but I am forever grateful

  4. It was so nice to read this post and feel all of your positivity. Sometimes when I'm feeling overwhelmed or just too caught up in the world I try and take a moment to say just one thing that I'm thankful for. That's all it takes to bring me back to center and make me realize that God has given me so many good things :)
