Today was a rough day. It really was. There were quite a few insults and unkindnesses. So tonight I am reminded more than ever of how important it is to be grateful.
I am thankful for my beautiful, peaceful home, a happy family, and dogs who are unfailingly glad to see me. I am thankful for open-hearted, curious children to teach, and friends to teach alongside. I am thankful for life, for breath, and for the moon in the sky. I am thankful for smiles, for tears, and for books that make you think. I am thankful for my daughter, my husband, and time to talk over a delicious dinner. I am thankful for love, for my Lord, and for this quiet evening. I have so many things to be thankful for. Look here, I've already nearly forgotten what was difficult about today.
What about you, friends? What blessings are you counting this evening?
Did you know I have another blog? This post came from there.
