Do you remember way back at the beginning of January I told you that I was going to pick a word for 2014. And do you remember that I picked “gratitude”? I was thinking about that today and wondering if I am truly practicing gratitude.
My family has had some tough days for the last 3 months. Some health issues and some heart issues. Things that I have no control over. Things that I wish I could find a solution for instead of waiting. Things that are easier than what some people are going through and tougher than it may be for others.
And in all of this I think I have missed moments to be grateful. Grateful for time spent with those I love. Grateful for the love others demonstrate for me…over and over again. Grateful for a warm home on these long blustery winter days. Grateful for when the blustery stops and the sun comes out.
And grateful for simple everyday kind of joys. A hot drink while doing devotions. My breakfast of peanut butter on toast (who wouldn’t love that unless you have allergies?). A book that makes me think and rejoice in my faith. And a flower in a sugar bowl.
Thanks for listening to me my friends and I hope you have a blessed day!
