Almost every day since last November I have written down things I am thankful for in a little journal and I have just made it to 1,000! Doing this has made me notice how much I take for granted the many blessings in my life and really how ungrateful I am much of the time. I has been a good lesson. When I looked back over the list I noticed that I had written down the same things quite a few times, things like good health and family, provision and friends.
As I was looking back at prvious posts I realized that this is my 86th post for Thankful Thursday!
Today I am thankful for:
beauty of a heron flying by
the cherry tree on our front lawn just starting to bloom today
wonderfully encouraging comments from bloggers this week
no matter how bad things are there is always something to be thankful for
my husband's help with the yard work on the weekend
a fun day at home just puttering around the house
birds chirping outside reminding me to be happy
pair of wrens making a nest near out back door
So I have reached my goal of one thousand but I am going to continue writing in my gratitude journal every day because it has been such a good experience for me.
What are you thankful for today?
