Thursday Gratitude

It’s been a while since I’ve thought about Thursday gratitudes. It’s not that I haven’t been grateful. Just not purposefully grateful, taking the time to pause and really think about the many things I have to be grateful for.
So here’s the list for today, in picture form.

and stories from Dad at dinner can’t be beat , lately the kids always ask for him to tell a story from when he was a kid. He tells the best stories and the kids are roaring with laughter by the time he’s done.
Sometimes it’s so easy to feel frustrated by life; the list that didn’t get finished, the everyday stresses, and the busy lives that can keep our focus on things that don’t really matter. But purposing to be grateful and to search out the happy things in life is so worthwhile. I’ll choose grateful over frustration any day.
How about you? What are you grateful for?
Gratitude is inspiring-head over to see Melissa at the Inspired Room for more inspiration.

  1. I'm thankful for a son who loves his family God's way;
    I'm thankful for you, my Daughter-In-Love;
    And I'm thankful for Levi, Cayden and Aida -- each one very unique from the other and special God-given treasures who bring life and delight to those they encounter.
    God is good!
    Love you!

  4. I love the first and last pictures in this post. And "YES!" to the vegan cookies! I'm thankful for the Word, God-breathed, and for AJ, the best tangible gift I've ever received.
