Gratitude: Many Reasons to Be Thankful

Note: It has been several weeks since I’ve written a gratitude post. I haven’t quit being grateful. I make time every day to be thankful for all the gifts in my life. I haven’t written a post in a while because I spent time participating in the 7 Tools Book Club this summer.

Last week was rough around my house. Both kids were sick, and by the end of the week, I wasn’t feeling well either. As a result, we’re a bit behind on things at my house, but I still have so much to be grateful for:

#1401. Rain this weekend that is further easing the drought conditions.

#1402. Friends who pray for me immediately when I ask, without knowing all the details.

#1403. The progress I’m seeing in lining my thoughts and speech up with God’s Word.

#1404. What I’m learning in my Faithful, Abundant, True study on Sunday nights.

#1405. My husband’s love and support.

#1406. The progress I’m seeing in Roo’s school work.

#1407. The virtues we’re all getting better at living out as we work on them.

#1408. My girls coming to me in the middle of the night when they need me.

#1409. How well our social studies and science plan is working out this year.

#1410. The growth (however small) of my two part-time businesses.

#1411. The opportunity to take field trips to support our learning experiences.

#1412. The peace and joy that is returning to my life as I focus on God’s Word and His promises (instead of my circumstances).

#1413. Online friends who help me blog better (and smarter).

#1414. A great time as a family at the fair parade.

#1415. A wonderful back-to-school picnic with our local homeschool group.

    Beautiful list. Friends who pray for you is such a big deal. I’m so glad I have you as freiend to pray for me. Thanks for your prayers for us today after our fender bender.

    • I’m thankful for you too, Sonita! I’m always so blessed when I see a text from you: “How can I pray for you today?” Such a blessing!

      You’re welcome for the prayers. I’m glad everyone was okay.
