Ten Things

My devotional book today was all about being thankful to God. The “assignment” portion was to list ten things for which I am grateful:

1. Excedrin Migraine 🙂
2. Our morning play date
3. Our evening dinner company
4. My hubby
5. My son
6. Naps
7. Sunshine (even on a 30* day)
8. My dog and cat
9. Our new humidifier that has eliminated my morning sore throat
10. Sweet iced tea

What ten things are you grateful for right now?

  1. What a great assignment! It always helps to put things into perspective and show that there really are way more positives in your life than negative!
    Hmmm…so 10 things…
    1 – Morning smiles from my girlies
    2 – Hot showers

  2. 1. You! You're seriously the most thoughtful friend I have. And I'm not even your BEST friend, so it just goes to show what a thoughtful person you are. You even care about us lower-tier friends. lol
    2. My husband. He's been so patient with me the last few months. And tolerant. I have a lot to learn from him.
    3. My son. He's so cute, even when he's being grumpy and toddlery.
    4. My soon-to-be daughter. Even though she keeps kicking me. Enjoy it while it lasts, kiddo!
    5. Amazon.com. They have everything!
    6. Fioricet. Since I can't take Excedrin Migraine.
    7. Cole slaw from Chick-Fil-A.
    8. My small group girls.
    9. Just my whole life. Recently, I've been thinking back a lot on how crummy life was growing up and how little I expected for myself. I'm so grateful God expected more for me!
    10. So I'm grateful for God. He's got more confidence in me than I've ever had in myself.

    P.S.- One time I called Excedrin just to tell them how great Excedrin Migraine was—that it worked better than my prescription stuff—and they sent me a bunch of coupons for free Excedrin products! Just, you know, in case you have a minute and want some free stuff. 🙂

  3. Excedrin Migraine. Oh yes. I'm actually about to go take some of that myself. Good call.

    Just catching up on reading blogs after a many-month hiatus. Reading about your recent struggles of faith makes my heart hurt for you. I'm so glad that you're in a better place now. Would still love to have you come up for a visit any time!
