Attitude of Gratitude Day 11

I’m grateful for those men and women who have and are currently serving in military service. I’m also grateful to the families of those service members. We owe you such a debt of gratitude. To my dad, my grandfathers, my uncles and cousin thank you for serving your country and enriching the lives of our family. I’m an extremely grateful Air Force brat.

Attitude of Gratitude Day 9

Today I celebrate the birth of the woman who gave me life. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!
My mom is one of God’s greatest blessings to me. I’m so grateful for her love, her prayers, her encouragement, and her listening ear. I’m grateful for her example of a godly woman, wife and mother. I grateful that though we’re miles apart she is only a phone call away.

Attitude of Gratitude Day 6

I’m grateful for those who fought before me so that I have the right to vote this Election Day. I’m also grateful this election cycle is coming to an end. I can do without the continuous TV ads and the contentious back and forth of the candidates. And I’m grateful that my hope is in Jesus because no matter who wins, He is still in control.

Attitude of Gratitude Day 1 & 2

According to some of my friends on Facebook, November is the month of gratitude and each day you’re supposed to post one thing for which you are grateful. While I’m on a self-imposed FB detox of sorts (another post for another day), I’m not one to turn down any opportunity to give thanks so I thought I’d blog my daily gratitudes.

Day 1
I’m grateful for clarity of mind especially since I’ve only averaged about 12 hours total sleep over the past 3 nights with a cranky but clingy 21 month old.

Day 2
I’m grateful for heat and electricity. Our furnace is out and while waiting for the part (that had to be specially ordered-then delayed due to Superstorm Sandy) we’ve been using space heaters. I know that I can”make do” but in light of all that the storm victims are enduring, my heart and prayers truly go out to them.
