Thankful For :: 451 - 460

This week hasn't been easy - mostly because I wasn't sitting on a beach with a book or enjoying relaxing with Peter without worrying about what was going on at home. Reality hit with a vengeance on Monday - dirty house, stacks of paperwork, back to work at jobs we don't love (but are thankful to have), hectic schedule and bill paying. On Wednesday I was absolutely dreading the day, but I decided that I needed to change my attitude and I took this verse as my "theme" for the day...

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. ~ Psalm 118:24

In fact, on Wednesday morning before work, I was walking around the house singing "This is the day..." at the top of my lungs as a pep-talk for myself. I was reminded that every. single. day. is a day that the Lord has made and He will help me handle whatever that day holds - I could start with a stinky attitude, or start with a positive attitude. It was my choice

This week I'm thankful for...

452. God's faithfulness to bring verses to mind right when I need them the most

453. Employment

454. Beautiful summer days

455. An air conditioned home and cars

456. Being reminded that I'm not perfect and I don't have it all figured out and I can learn from others

457. Grilled hot dogs with all the extras

458. Unexpectedly getting off from work an hour early - yes, I actually did the {happy dance} at work

459. A patient spouse

460. FINALLY seeing things start to grow in our container garden!!
